A gaming weekend

It was a long, exhausting weekend at Dundracon, but definitely fun. Alicia and I got to play the deck-building version of Resident Evil Saturday, then she went on to play two different miniatures games with Craig while Alex focused on open gaming. I ended up reading while they were playing in the evening, which was more than fine by me. On Sunday, Alicia, Alex and I spent seven hours learning how to play Leaving Earth from its creator. I'd read reviews of the game, which all loved it but talked about how complex it was, and they were right. There's a lot of math in the game, so much so you have to have scribble pads to work out scenarios. The game covers 20 years, from 1956-1977, with players playing one of five different countries in their race to get into space.

Then there was shopping--new dice, fun t-shirts, chain mail jewelry--and getting to spend time with my family. I call it all a win.

Today was a step back toward routine. I watched Black Sails since I hadn't had a chance on Saturday...

Holy crap. Just when I think this show can't get any better. There was so much to love about this episode. The scene between Jack and Vane when they realize they're parting ways for good. The scene with Vane and Blackbeard cutting down all the men determined to stop Vane escaping. Finding out the truth about Mr. Scott. Not nearly enough Billy, and ghost Miranda can leave any day now, but man, the rest of it...

My jaw dropped at the Mr. Scott reveal. Did not see that one coming. AT ALL. Hopefully, he lives. I've always liked him. Plus, it would help Flint and the others if he arrives alive since he can vouch for them. Even better, it creates a tie to bring together the different story lines of this season.
