Ghost Stories- Normal
When I play Ghost Stories, I shuffle and set up the player boards first so that there is an empty space in the middle. This is the ghost of where the village will soon be.
I shuffle the village tiles and place them one at a time. The pattern in which I place them changes, but, when I am not thinking about placing tiles, I place them from left to right, top to bottom. For the third week in a row, the Buddhist Temple has ended up in the center.
I was tired today. I was grouchy today and now I'm playing Ghost Stories. I wanted to drink instead.
I always enjoy the moment between the board is fully set up and I draw the first ghost. The monks, all standing back to back in the center of the board, seem so confident.
From the Tao Te Ching:
Express yourself completely, then keep quiet.
I suppose it's time to play.
Not knowing what will transpire, each post will chronicle my attempts to use a first time reading of the Tao Te Ching to inform my decisions during solo plays of Antoine Bauza's Ghost Stories. I shall read a little of the book each week and juxtapose its passages with a sort of session report. I will not read or heed any other advice on how to play the game well. I shall attempt to play on Thursday nights and post the following Friday.
