As Japan is coming up, and we’re not planning on packing board games for the big trip, for this particular post I’m going to pick my personal favourite board game tablet apps that allow for multi-player, so geeky couples and families like us can keep playing their favourite board games on the go – without travelling so heavy.
Today, I was supposed to do a book review. That became an issue, because I haven’t finished a book yet this year. I have been reading a bunch, when I’ve had the time/made the time for it, but the other problem is that the time I have taken to read has been spent burning through the book Caitlin already reviewed – Anna Kendrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody.
As much as I could rave about how she’s an empowering, earnest and witty pint-sized force of nature, that doesn’t really help with the plan to review a book you haven’t already heard us talk about.
But, it is Thoughtful Thursday – which we said was going to be partly tech reviews and partly reflective ones on things that get us thinking… and of all things, Pokemon Go hits both notes right now.
What happens when you take two our our perennial favourites – Stone Age and Lords of Waterdeep – combine them, and add Vikings?
You get awesomeness. In particular, you get Champions of Midgard.
Yesterday was mush day (when I was supposed to post this, but I had had a rough day and just wanted to spend the night cuddling) and coming up here in Canada we have family day – I figured it was a good time to talk about bonding over games.
Valentines Day is just around the corner – whether you love it or hate it, or really don’t care. My opinion on the day is that most people do easily go overboard, and there doesn’t need to be anything flashy – but if you’re going to give me a reason to celebrate love I will celebrate it. There’s really no reason not to!
But whether you’re going big or staying casual, if you’re a board game person in want to play something love-themed on the special day, one of the first games you may consider is Love Letter.
