This is by no means a complete list, but I just thought I’d share some of the cool NON-computer games I’ve been playing lately.
Off the top of my head, I’ve played Ticket to Ride, Dominion, Ascension, Carcassonne, 7 Wonders, Pandemic, Forbidden Island, Set, Lost Cities, Neuroshima Hex, Ingenious and Robot Master recently. I own physical versions for about half, iOS versions for the other half, with plenty of overlap somewhere in the middle.
We went to the Newport Jazz Festival again this year, for both Saturday and Sunday. It was excellent, we had a great time, heard some amazing music, and took a ton of photos (I'm still sorting through mine). I should have those up sometime next week.
I'm also trying to get back into recording some of my music as well. I've been sitting on four or five completed songs plus a ton of ideas, and just need to spend some time working out the details. Hopefully I'll be able to spend some more time collaborating with Ben Hillman, since we've been exchanging song ideas here and there for a while now.
And finally, I'm looking forward to beta testing and then playing the upcoming MMORPG Warhammer Online with Robyn and some of my crazy "online" friends. We all used to play World of Warcraft together, but got tired of the end-game loot/rep farming grind (that's MMO-speak for "repetitive, boring crap") so this might be the change of pace we're looking for. We'll see.
