Saturday was another game day with friends, that I missed the start of due to feeling off. I played Cranium again, after more than a decade, reinforcing my lack of desire to play it more, even with the win. After an even longer time frame, more than 20 years I think, I also got to play Scotland Yard, the fourth highest rated game at BGG from those I remember my family owning as I was growing up. The Captain is Dead has become almost trivial for us as a group now. I've lost only 2 of the 13 games I've been a part of and the difficulty has been ramped up more and more as time's gone by.
On Sunday I went along to church again, for the third time this year and met the 10 week old son of a couple I've known for a few years now. I did not get pooped on, or spit up on, or any of that; a few minutes longer with him on my lap and that might have been different. I'm thinking I might start going back a little more often now, a few people commented about me not having been for a while.
Early yesterday afternoon I started shifting a bunch of stuff out of my room so I could rearrange the furniture and vacuum the areas that had been blocked off from access. The only thing that didn't get shifted was the big bookcase, and I'm probably going to be shifting my bed again in a few months so it's not right by the windows. My count of boxes went up by two in the evening as well, I appropriated a couple of boxes that friends had used when they shifted a couple of weeks prior. So far there isn't much change due to that, but I'm going to be resorting to try and get certain books together, like I managed with Star Trek books this afternoon.
Tonight was the first Intro Night for SAGA and there was, at peak, nearly 30 people in the boardgame room. I didn't spend a lot of time playing, with very little of what was taken along being involved enough for me to want to play, especially with people I don't know. I have very little idea about how many will be coming back regularly but it seems like a fair few of them will be.
Thursday night is likely to be less populated going by my past half decade of attendance. I do expect one person to be there that wasn't tonight, and realistically I'd rather game with her than most of the others that might be there.This entry was originally posted at http://avron.dreamwidth.org/180929.html.
