What else?

I haven't forgotten about this blog... I've just been playing nothing but Tears of the Kingdom for the last few weeks. This game is addictive as anything - Go one direction for a quest, get distracted by something, while you're working on that you find a korok seed and another clue to something you were working on an hour ago... Oh look, a horse! Let's see what happens if you glue a rocket to it! And so on, until you've lost two entire days. But I did manage to put the switch down for a couple hours and play board games with some friends who came in from out of town. We're Doomed! which remains a favorite of mine. Got to try out Heat! Pedal to the Medal. This game was the hot game at the Gathering of Friends. I thought it was okay, but not as good as everyone was making it out to be. Fun for sure, but not "More plays than Ark Nova" fun. Right now I'm punching out Age of Heroes, where you get to play as a team up of X-Men and do various X-men related things to X-men bad guys. I expect this game to be one of those that I punch out, read the rules, and then never actually play. This weekend is Balticon. While I'm not going myself, I know a lot of my friends are attending, so I'm sure there'll be some great stories from that.
