Tonight at SAGA was fine for those that role-play, I got a single 2-player game of Race for the Galaxy before the only other board gamer left. I wasn't really surprised to have so few show up, with the Uni year finished there's been a few of the regulars leave the city, and at least a couple of the others have stopped attending for other reasons of late as well.
Last Friday night I got to play a bunch of games at the Irregulars meeting. My first game of Hanabi in person for a while (after it came to Board Game Arena recently) and the wild cards change things significantly. It's also interesting, if potentially frustrating, to play with people that don't thing the same was as you. The Captain is Dead was played again, and for the second of three times most of the Engineering cards were out early with the Chief Engineer as a chosen role. I wondered on my walk home how many more levels of Jump Core repair we could have managed after getting through the chosen difficulty very easily.
I've spent some of the past couple of Sunday mornings at Church helping in the Crèche, mostly with the daughter of my ex. I also got to spend time with the elder boy who still seems quite happy to see me most days we're both there. On my way home this Sunday I stopped at the park and spent at least 30 minutes with the boys (and father) of another family, probably spending more time on a swing than I had all the rest of the year.
