It’s been a while everyone! Normally if I don’t post it’s because I’m too sick, but this month I’ve been helping organize for a local gaming group (The Vermont Gaming Community). All April long we’ve had Boardgame nights on Thursdays from 5-11pm, and it’s a lot of work, so I had to set aside blogging for a bit until I regained the balance. It’s starting to get simpler to set up and I can get back to writing ^_^ Thanks to Lyme I have to pick and choose between goals, but I’m glad that I get to do this and work with people in the community!
Red Dragon Inn, high fantasy drinking game simulator.
In my opinion, it’s more fun than the real thing.
Accounts say this was one epic game of Betrayal at House on the Hill, a horror-style boardgame. The board “develops” as you play (discovering rooms), and at a point in the game the “Haunt” will begin, usually designating one person as a “Betrayer”. Some scenarios are divergent from that formula, instead pitting players against each other, or against the house.
Because of Boardgame nights, I got to try a lot games I’ve never played, like Race for the Galaxy, which is my current fave, and also Quarriers. Classic games like Dominion (yes I have noticed that not one of these is actually a “board game” in the sense of having a board) were also popular. The group I’ve been organizing for is about 400 members, and so our turnout is pretty healthy, about 20 people or so come out to play (more if you count people who can’t stay long), and about half of attendees are female (awesome!). It’s getting pretty popular so in May the plan is to have Boardgames on Saturday, and to run Magic the Gathering on Thursdays. If you play Boardgames share in the comments, tell me what you like to play! Even Monopoly counts (:
Anyone else play Magic? It can sure be expensive! A lot of people in the area seem to be comfortable using proxies (stand-in cards) because of the expense. To me, it’s great having people who can play with us, and thanks to some of the members of the community we have decks on-hand for players to use, which enables us to include people from all socio-economic classes. Poverty not being as much of an issue with a collectible card game is awesome.
Some of my attentive readers noticed I had dyed my hair pink again a while back. I used N’Rage in Bubblegum pink. It was a very pretty color, but did not last as long as the last time, and I can’t remember what dye I used that time because it was so long ago (in 2011). The new color is all gone now, and I’m back to just white blonde, but I got a cool new wasteland-style haircut a couple weeks ago, complete with adorbs bangs (: Not much in the way of pics on that one yet, but if you guys are into seeing it I’ll put forth effort and conquer the photos.
Which color should I dye my hair next? Tangerine and yellow gradient, or teal? Have your own suggestions?
Hella cool camwhoring in the midst of the dyeing process.
Makes me think dreds would look good. Too late, now, I cut it (:
Be nice to me, I’m not wearing makeup!
(Also, this is the shirt I’m wearing to dye my hair in, because I’m a barbarian no more!)
I hope you guys enjoyed my update, I’ll be posting more beauty stuff soon, and I am behind on comments but I READ THEM ALL. If I’m having a bad day comments are one of my little tactics to cheer myself up (; I also enjoy the letters I get, and if you write me one it might be a slow reply from me but you WILL have one ^_^
