Games and Well… More Tabletop Games

gaming avatar

Yesterday, my SO and I went over to Pegasus Games here in town and played a few card and board games in celebrating of Tabletop Day. We dove into Tsuro, Ascension, Cthulhu Fluxx, and Gloom before going home. For an online game, I’ve been having fun with Folds from Armor Games, which has an origami-theme.

I had fun, but I’m in “work mode,” which means that I’m fully immersed in productivity right now. Firefly is ramping up. I just finished scouring through page proofs and I have four other projects I’m wrapping up.

This is a good thing for me, because it means I have a fun job to do — and it’s time to make the most out of it. Very happy that portion of my business is healthy. Yay!

    Mood: Blargh due to weather-related conditions.
    Caffeinated Beverages Consumed: Well rested, so having half-caff.
    Work-Out Minutes Logged Yesterday: Walkin’, walkin’, walkin’.
    In My Ears: Nothing
    Game Last Played: Eternal Sonata
    Movie Last Viewed: Deadfall
    Latest Artistic Project: Need to take pictures…
    Latest Release: “The Button” We Are Dust anthology
