20 September: This Week In…

RPGs: we finally finished Epic 6-1.  It was a pretty satisfying conclusion with some genuinely fun epic stories being told.  And I guess fittingly enough, it looks like our bridges are being burned behind us as Wizards shut down their forums, which were basically the last bastion of 4e and had a huge amount of useful 4e content on them.  So, goodnight sweet prince, I guess.  On to better things, someone’s running Dungeon World in a couple of weeks.

Board games: we finally scored a 25 in Hanabi!  Took us a long time to get there.  Now we get to try it with a sixth suit…Also played Progress: Evolution of Technology, which feels like a VERY long game for its content and complexity or lack thereof.  I was a bit bored after an hour and it went on for nearly three.  Also Castles of Burgundy, which remains excellent, and surprisingly balanced, but retains major problems with its colours and really feels like it needs a reprint.  Finally, ordered Codenames which is supposed to be good, and was definitely cheap.

TV: new series of Doctor Who had some fun moments early on but just left me bored by the end.  Meeeehhhhh.
