Special thanks to Emily for getting that gig together and gathering such a fun gaggle of gamers.
I got to play Mechaton with Jeff, Vincen and Tom.
My mechs, Hoverthing Leader, Hoverthing Left, Hoverthing Right and Carrion 86 were victorious. Jeff won the day for me by destroying one of Tom’s mechs on the last action of the game. Good stuff. I think I had forgotten how much fun it is to build awesome robots with legos.
It is even more fun to build giant robots and then destroy all of your friend’s robots with the power of your unstoppable dice and cunning.
After Mechaton it was lunchtime which meant pizza for everyone and chicken fingers shaped like dinosaurs for me. Nathan complimented my dinosaur lunch. Oh, and Vincent made delicious mashed taters with nice spices. Delicious.
Dictionary of Mu went alright, not great but alright.
Dinner was wonderful. Talking YA fiction with Jonathan, Vincent and Meg while on my left side Jeff and Nathan talked game design and Tovey waived his arms enthusiastically at Joshua.
And then Be Cool back at Vincent’s house where I won again, as the Developing Nations (that was me) blackmailed the world with ecological disaster. That game is just amazing. Its the Al Gore board game and its awe-inspiring.
The car ride with Jeff, there and back was just a treat, as we haven’t had a whole lot of non-Kryos, non-game time to hang lately.
Joshua has the coolest lego robots that have ever existed on top of his bookshelf.
And as always, Carrie and Joshua were fantastic hosts, filling me and Jeff with breakfast before we headed out across MA and NY to head home on that rainy, shitty Sunday afternoon/evening.
Odd little ending tidbit, on the ride home, at Cracker Barrel, I picked up a DVD of old Max Fliescher Superman cartoons for six bucks. I’m really intrigued to see these 1940′s cartoons.
