Old Friend

Games, Games, Games - Summertime Love

Tired. Will be grateful to fall onto my bed and snuggle up under my duvet and into my pillows in a few minutes time. Not sure if I'll be doing any reading this evening (ok, maybe a little bit before falling asleep in the pages and waking up in the middle of the night with the light on, my glasses imprinted into my face and dribble smudging the pages....when, hopefully sans dribble actually...).

Had fun this evening with Seth and Dom playing a few games.

First up was 'La Strada' by Mayfair Games. I think we may have missed something but the game was 'ok' without being really much to think about or write home about. Not one I could reccommend and not one I'll probably play again (or at least for a long time).

                  

Next up was Atlas Games 'Dungeoneer: Vault of Fiends', followed by 'Dungeoneer: Dragons of the Forsaken Desert' because we enjoyed it so much. The Dungeoneer series is a fun, fairly quick, fantasy adventure quest game. Your character needs to complete three quests to win the game (or kill off the other players). You fight monsters, collect treasures  and explore the terrain. Glad I finally played this as I've had the game since before Atlas took over publishing it a few years ago. Each set stands alone or you can combine them to make longer games. Great fun and certainly one for repeat plays.

Right, that's it. Have headache and am going to bed. Glad this evening was fun as today has had me in a really weird mood. Hope that changes soon. Oh, I also booked tickets to go and see Charlie & The Chocolate Factory on Friday night. It was a close call as I also wanted to go and see Zombina & The Skeletons play as they're in London. But Burton and Depp have won out.

Final Countdown

Still not feeling overly great this morning.

On top of that I've sent out a couple of texts to people talking about alien invasions and drinks???

Not sure what that's all about!

I guess it's such a grey and gloomy day (not to mention humid) it seems that it's a perfect day for an alien invasion.

Time to dust off my 'Flash' costume perhaps?

Female Robots.....

Well I can be all smug and 'ahead of the game' right now as I was talking about this a month or so back. The BBC have only just now picked the story up!!! Goodness....

Anyway, some of my more regular readers might vaguely remember me talking about a female humanopid robot that the Japanese have created called Repliee Q1. I spent ages surfing trying to find a picture of her without any joy. Anyway, the BBC have one alongside the new article so here she is.....

Bit worried about the amount of 'evil' that features fairly high on the list but then again anyone who knew me when I used to play Merrick would probably just nod :p

You scored as True Neutral. A True Neutral person has two faces- either these people are merely apathetic, preferring to focus their minds on more important things, or these people truly believe in a balance of all things. To these people, there can be no light without some darkness. These people also have no dedication to, or intrinsic distrust of, laws.
