New to Me


This was the Bong Joon-Ho film I was most excited about watching. It seemed to be right up my alley, thanks to a mix of action and sci-fi in a dystopian future. Sure enough, it was a high quality story that did its best to be an allegory for our modern society. Throughout the length of the film they do a stellar job of explaining the history of this world, and how it works, which was made even more effective by the great cast. I'm starting to think that Chris Evans is one of my favorite modern actors, and this movie proves that he can do more than his typical Captain America routine. Tilda Swinton is absolutely transformed to the point of being almost unrecognizable, and her portrayal of a character who is both blood-thirsty and a coward is priceless. I think where I struggled with the movie, was the strange tone shifts as they traveled through the train. At times there was a lot of confrontation slowing down their progress forward through the train, and other times it seemed like they could just waltz right on through. It didn't seem to fit and I was always trying to figure out "Is this scene supposed to be funny?" The other issue I had was (trying to avoid spoilers here) Curtis's final choice didn't seem to have enough balance to make it an actual struggle to decide. I enjoyed the film and I can see why some people really loved it, but it won't be one I need to own.

Have any of you ever struggled with finding a comfortable balance with your gaming hobby? Have you already found it? What do you do to keep it in check (if you feel it's necessary to do so)?

this version, all parts accounted for, might be good bait, we have a similar game, one hemisphere with 6 different shaped stacking pieces, this is three hemisheres with lots of stacking pieces but they are all the same size. we like the dexterity games so we will give it a try

Nearby, there was this game, Balance. The BGG page describes it this way: 'A simple dexterity game for clever children or drunken adults' (emphasis added). Sounds like a winner to me. Brand-new, out-of-shrink from VV for $1.99.

Type: CURSE
Name: DIZZY


When you get this curse, take three unused room tiles (i.e. the 'basic' room tiles you leave out when playing with curses/treasures) and balance them on your head.

While cursed, you may not roll dice unless all three of those tiles are on your head. (There is no other penalty for them falling; you just have to stop and put them back on your head.)

To break: Torch, torch, gold mask.

[Note: Maybe it should just be two tiles? Or is that too easy?]

Type: Room
Title: Trophy room (just out of reach)

I like the idea of having to participate in a sub mini game to unlock gems in a room. So this would force a quick dexterity game forcing players to stack their adventurer pieces on top of each other (I have no idea how difficult this would really be) or perhaps stacking items "found" in the room, to "reach" the trophies. Each player must place and touch only their own piece (can't have one player do all the stacking). Number of gems would be equal to number of pieces stacked (except nothing for one). So the more in the room, more gems, but harder it gets.

Another from yesterday. Missing one wooden stacking disk, but that didn't affect our 3-player games last night. I like the components for this one. The red base is a beast to stack on!

Chris wanted to give this little wooden game a shot so he, Rob and I did. The first attempt at balancing was foiled by a passing gamer who bumped the table. Guess this isn't the greatest game for a Con.

After this, I called it a night, even though Chris tried to talk me into Ricochet Robots.
