Second Gear, Snowy Traffic, Firefighting Games [Jan. 29th, 2013|12:29 am]
Beemer
After an excellent Star Wars session on Saturday I did basically nothing all day yesterday. I think I'm fighting something off; I don't feel bad, per se, but I felt like I was stuck in second gear all day today. Managed to get an abstract written and sent off, but not much else.

It started snowing this afternoon, so I left work a little early. The roads were clear, but traffic was horrid. I actually did the exit-ramp bypass thing (off the highway and back on again) to avoid getting jammed up at 2 mph forever and ever. Twice! Technically legal, but I felt a bit guilty for breaking the social compact -- it *is* kinda like cutting in line. Jeff called it "a perfect example of Lawful Neutral behavior".

Enjoyable low-key games night at the Ottems' this evening. We played a quick game of Dominion, and then a cooperative firefighting game, which was pretty fun. It did a good job of capturing fire dynamics like "I can't open that door or we'll get backdraft and this room will fill with fire", as well as "we're fine, we're fine, oh god the house is about to collapse". We didn't manage to get much in the way of bonus points, but we did win the game on Veteran difficulty. And I made sure we rescued both the dog and the cat. (Much more important than the two remaining humans...)

Flashpoint

I really like Flashpoint. I have been playing a lot of cooperative games lately.

When I explain the game to people, I tell that that it is (just as) important to rescue the dog and cat because the chief wants to look good for the cameras.
