    yikes. traumatic head injuries are scary AF, is what I learned when my step-mom had a stroke. ~hugs~ be as well as you can be. Sounds like you've been doing the things you need to do to adjust. Not much that any internet words can do, other than offer love.

    belated happy new year! I rang in 2020 by sleeping through midnight while being moderately numbed to the pain of strep throat with ibuprofen. I will say this though: I ended 2019 with a really quick decision to go to the doctor and get antibiotics after only a day of my throat hurting, which is a new record (possibly influenced by the fact that i definitely had a crazy fever that was making every part of my body hurt; usually i have a sore throat and think "it'll pass", and it doesn't). All this bodes well for a new year of not delaying important things! Huzzah for medical science! Huzzah for me! Huzzah for the Quill!

    Yeah, happy new year, guys. I rang in the new year by playing board games for like 20 hours straight!

    Get well, Anita! I can't handle throat stuff very well. Being sick is fine, but leave my throat alone. Being moderately numbed is nice tough

    20 hours of board games sounds like a perfect New Years to me! (plots madly for next year...)

    Over the last couple of years, I started to get into board games. To the point that I've bought more than I've even come close to playing yet. Part of it was trying to catch up on 10+ years of an amazing run for board gaming, part of it was that I have a problem.

    I've leveled out for a while now, but kickstarter is still a weakness.

    Careless double posting!

    For anyone interested, here is my collection as I've captured it on boardgamegeek.com (only base games, no expansions listed). I'll have to double check, the list may or may not have stuff from Christmas on it.

    Wow, Malc. Impressive. My son loves board games, or card games, or video games or ball games. The Girl needs to be coerced and will sometimes play but will bring a book and read when it's not her turn, which drives me nuts.

    OK Quillers... I need advice. I am thinking of opening a business. I need income and can't' have a job that leaves my kids to their own devices all summer long. So I'm gathering data about opening a mobile bakery of sorts. My county doesn't allow a permit for an in-house kitchen, but there is an exception for baked goods that are all prepackaged. Regardless, I'm thinking jams, cakes, cookies, muffins, etc. I should qualify for sales at music festivals and possibly farmers markets.

    I need input on a business name. I'm favoring "Dea Dia Confections". Dea Dia was a Roman Goddess of fertility of the earth and the growth of the planted crops, especially grain. Her name literally translates to "Divine Goddess" or "Goddess of Light and Sky". So I'm also thinking, "Bakery of the Divine Goddess" .

    I'm open to other ideas, please. I was thinking The Jam Brand (a play on "Jam Band" since I'm primarily focusing on music festivals atm) for a while when I was thinking about selling only Jam but I think I need to diversify somewhat to bring people in. Cookies will draw hippies way faster than Jam.

    Actually, upon further review, "Low hanging fruits" isn't the worst thing I've heard either

    PS. "Bad ideas" is probably not one I'd go with

    Oh man, Malcor, I only have played 62 of the games on your list. If you haven't started Seafall, about all I can say is play it for the experience rather than for the competition.

    My group is 2 years, 3 months into Gloomhaven (doing every unlocked mission, including expansion) and we still have at least 7 available missions to go. We play every other week 2 mission(s) attempts a week.

    I wonder if I should go through BGG and make a list of all the games I've played some time; or is there only a way to make lists for what you own?

    Tomorrow I head up to Big Sky, Montana for some skiing, hello cold weather, we've been avging 55-60 as high here during the winter so far.

    I think BGG has different way to tag games.

    I did play SeaFall and I don't have as much problem with it as the gaming community seems to. Biggest problem is that the rulebook sucks, but we ended up making it through with our interpretation well enough. The other downside is that the back half becomes a bit of a slog, but we house ruled starting with the things we would have to spend time getting EVERY SINGLE new game and that helped a lot.

    Probably half way through Gloomhaven, but have been on a months long hiatus, need to get it back to the table to finish--and finish the expansion. And, the sequel, Frosthaven, is due to hit kickstarter sometime this year...
