Re: Gaming Goals

One month into the year, and I seem to be on track with my goal of playing boardgames more regularly. I've also enjoyed following the progress a friend of mine is making with their own boardgaming goals (as well as contributing to it). They've already reached their 5x5 goal (6 plays of my copy of Mi...

February Prompt: Make a Mark

Just as most of us enjoy reading about the fictional worlds some of our favourite characters inhabit, it's likely that these characters in turn pick up a book from time to time -- whether for a bit of "light reading" or in search of critical knowledge to help them in their quests, be it Cimorene, El...

Reading Treasure Map - Scribblings

As you venture through the literary landscape of your choice, you may stumble across other interesting landmarks or even the habitats of fascinating creatures. Should you spot a dragon's lair you may wish to jot down "here be dragons" so as to warn other adventurers. Or perhaps in chatting to locals...

Re: Playing Boardgames Online

Lately I've gotten into playing Through the Ages on mobile. I've largely been playing against the AIs, but this morning marked the start of my first game against real players, notably ones from the local boardgaming community. One thing I like particularly about this digital implementation is that i...

Re: TV Soundtracks

Yesterday was quite an intense day for me, so I decided to treat myself to an episode of Blue Bloods (which I'd previously decided to ration due the possibility of there only being a handful of seasons left). As soon as the DVD menu loaded and the theme music started playing, I felt myself immediate...

Gaming Goals

One of the things I'm looking forward to this year is playing boardgames more regularly. My usual gaming group generally meets twice a week, though in the past I've only aimed for once a week due to the distance. Between this group, potentially two smaller groups, and a gaming day that the one retai...

January Prompt: Business Cards

Throughout the various books we've read, we've been introduced to a diverse cast of characters. Each has their own distinct personality and interesting skills that enable them to get the job done. Imagine for a moment that characters across literature interacted with each other off the page (perhaps...

We're hoping to launch a new game at our next Gathering and Games event, but we need your help to make it happen. We've composed a list of categories needing suggestions using the following form . For example, if the category were "wizarding sweet", you might suggest "chocolate frog". While we do as...

More than Just a Game

Though I enjoy boardgames and video games in and of themselves, lately they've been more than simply just that for me. I've had several rough patches in the last year or so where I couldn't concentrate on much due to illness, and boardgames helped provide some much-needed mental stimulation. Graspin...

Hi everyone, Dario and I are still hard at work bringing a number of core features to HOL, so we'll only be able to start working on other areas like Hogsmeade early next year. In the meantime though, we'd love to hear from you how you envision Hogsmeade working at HOL. It's important to us that we ...

Downloadable Content (DLCs)

Although the concept of video games having optional downloadable content at extra cost over and above the cost of the base game isn't new, there's still a lot of debate around them. I used to be firmly against this as I had previously felt that the contents (such as extra quests, classes, regions an...

Re: Holiday Music in December

Though my family doesn't always observe Chanukah, I love listening to (and even singing, though only as part of a group) two of the Hebrew songs associated with lighting the candles: Haneirot Halalu (roughly translated as "Those Candles") and Maoz Tzur ("Stronghold of Rock"). In fact, these are some...
