Fantastic Beasts 3

I just saw a thing online ... Fantastic Beasts 3, the third of five planned movies set in Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's magical universe, recently delayed production by several months. Why? Well, it turns out the cast was given a specific and rather exciting reason for the delay. According to D...

The games we play will be explained, with words, ahead of time, and then we have a warm-up 'explanatory' game of each too.

Re: Dealing with Dragons - Chapters 5 to 8

I really like how the characters have been set up as who and what they are in the first chapters of Dealing with Dragons . Then, when I am ready to settle into a book with a princess and dragons and folks who want to kill and/or eat her, here come some new people! Well, of course. There are other dr...

Re: An Introduction to the Class

Excuse me while I fan girl over my pirate but yes!! There are so many more good pirates than the typical ones. Killian is one of the best examples of that. That’s part of why I love Once Upon A Time so much; it shows there are more sides to a story than we know. I’m still working on my OUAT class, ...

Brrr, Freeze COLD - how to heat a castle

Have you ever been in a castle, a real live castle? Even if you haven't, it's easy to imagine just how cozy and warm they are. Not! Generally speaking, depending on their location, they are just plain cold! Lots of stone, open (or leaky) casements, breezy hallways, you name it, a castle has a lot of...
