Something of a cold

I noticed my throat getting sore on Sunday and over the past couple of days it's got worse. My voice, already not particularly loud, has dropped in volume again. I'd have been inclined to take today off work, if there hadn't been an absence of work anyway. Tomorrow at Mainly Music I'll probably be leaving after dealing with the music portion, so I can go buy some things at the supermarket before coming back home to sit more on my recliner.

I've spent a lot of my free evenings for the past couple of weeks playing Mass Effect (and restarting it). Like I expect I always will, in first playthroughs at least, I'm getting sidetracked by minor missions and not spending much time with the main plot quests. Sitting in my recliner with mouse on clipboard on are of chair is probably causing me some impediment to skill level, but I'm far from good at that sort of thing anyway.

Over the past several months I've been making use of an app on my phone to update and clarify play records at BoardGameGeek. I had been inconsistent with how I recorded some places, and I wasn't consistent with all colours in the records. My checking has led to finding a few errors I'll likely not be able to fix as the paper records were limited, or scrap paper that I no longer have. The next big push will possibly be going through the 7 Wonders games and ensuring that the Boards are named consistently, Rome/Roma is one of the simpler issues that exists there. Having recorded 5870 plays it's unsurprising that I've not been completely consistent, especially when I hadn't given thought to the record keeping when it started. Not being sure of the names of many of the people I played against has also led to some issues, there have been close to a dozen different Sams for example, differentiating isn't always possible.

After about 13 years working where I do there's going to be a new shift supervisor when I go back to work. The guy that's been doing the job since soon after I started has his last day tomorrow, and it's going to be weird knowing he's not around. I feel, justified or not, that I owe him me still getting work over the past couple of years thanks to the temp agency depriving me of shifts until he started interceding on my behalf. The phone I purchased before my current smart phone came from him as well, I gave him $20 for it at the start of 2007 and it lasted more than eight years before it stopped charging, I almost miss that phone.

For this term, and maybe the next?, I'll be dealing with the music at Mainly Music, much easier now than it was a few years back with a multitude of CDs. Over the past couple of years especially I've felt the need to work when I was able to do so on a Wednesday. At the start of this year I decided to see if I'd get enough work through the rest of the week to take Wednesday's off permanently. So far it's been working fine and I have been spending the end of those mornings in the room with upwards of 20 toddlers and their parentals. With the person that had been dealing with music deciding to concentrate on other things for a while I'm going along earlier again. Considering everything I'm not likely to experience a lot of other differences in how the mornings go for me, aside from not getting to sleep in as much.

Early tomorrow, around when I'll be waking up, some people are going to make a start on cutting down the big tree at the corner of this section. I don't know how much impact it will have on light levels at this stage of the year, but I expect my room will get a lot more sunlight through summer. It may even lead to the kitchen and shower getting late night sun.

For most of the past 15+ years since leaving school my body mass has been relatively consistent, fluctuating maybe 5 kg total depending on exercise (work) and junk food intake etc. On occasion I'd hear people say that when I hit mid thirties I'd start to notice my metabolism change... it seems to have done so over the past six months. I don't think I've changed much of my activities or habits this autumn/winter compared to prior years but compared to the start of the year I've gained about 15% of my body weight.

I played an aborted 2-player game of Alchemists at SAGA tonight, going through everything in short succession was weird compared to the drawn out games that online play results in. It's not going to get a lot of play as the owner is leaving halfway through the sessions and until players are all experienced enough it won't be done quick enough. I also won a game of Mystic Vale, partially as the player that's won most of the games I played in was the aforementioned player, and thus not involved.
Saturday was supposed to be a game afternoon, that ended up being myself and the hosts playing a couple of games before getting distracted by phones because gaming with three isn't as interesting. I got to play Fresco again for the first time in about five years, remembering most of it.
Last Wednesday afternoon I went to see a movie at the cinema for the first time in just over five years. Wonder Woman was as enjoyable as expected, and if I happened to be a person that went to the movies more often I'd probably be seeing it a second time.

I haven't posted here in about a month, I don't know if that lowered posting frequency was a one off, or if I no longer feel as inclined to post. Having had a particular thing I've been thinking about but not wanting to post about it yet is probably delaying much of the effort I might make.

So far I've been out playing boardgames for much of the month. The weekend was Saga's second mini-con and I think I played games for more of it than normal. I went out to the Monday group again last night, with no work today I figured I might as well see how things were. I spent a while playing with a little cat that I'd probably now have as a pet if we were allowed pets in this flat, and felt I'd be able to take care of it.

The Steam summer sale has cost me about $30 all up, and should lead to me having plenty of games to play for quite a few months. Especially when a couple of them are RTS games. If I already had Tabletop Simulator or had felt like spending $15 on it, there would probably be another half dozen purchased games as a fair few boardgames are available there. Unrelated to that, I did purchase Colt Express, largely because there is a mission aspect to it that I hope will get expansions at some point.

By the time I got up on Thursday last week the heat pump had been fixed and working for a while, the flat hasn't felt cold since then which has been very good. The weather in general has also been better than I expected, I even managed to have laundry on the line for a while yesterday afternoon.

Steam sale

I have managed to avoid spending a lot of money in the Steam Summer Sale, mainly by not having a lot of money in my steam wallet. That might be changing tomorrow after I go to the supermarket. Deciding what I want to acquire, and will actually play, is the current factor holding me up from spending the last of what's there right now. With all I've seen about it (and the small amount I was able to play of the sequel) Mass Effect is currently at the top of my to buy list. The number of LEGO games for $6 would be tempting as well, if I had a working controller at the moment.
Apparently posting about how cheap Portal was a couple of days ago was enough to get one of the Saga regulars to buy it. He's got about halfway through after a couple of play hours.
As I was warned a fair while ago, the Hexcells follow ups are not as good. I'll almost certainly finish the pair of them, but it's going to take a lot longer than the Hexcells game did.

Work picked up again after nothing for nearly three weeks, I've been getting simple enough jobs while there. Getting out of bed quickly hasn't been happening, I'm not sure whether it's more because I'm tired and want to sleep more or the cold making me want to just stay under the covers. Apparently the heat pump is getting fixed on Thursday though, it'll be good to find the house warm again. Still thinking that a dehumidifier would be worthwhile.

A bit more gaming.

As I knew Buckets of Dice would leave me drained at the start of the month, I chose to take a few more days off around that weekend than normal. I then didn't get asked about work for nearly two more weeks. Yesterday and today were both simple enough work but I haven't missed the early starts. FB indicates that this time of year is comparatively short on shifts so it may just be the time of year, but paranoid me wonders if I missed out because I wanted time off.

I got to play Chicken Caesar at the weekend, with a couple of the other players teaming up with much younger family. I ended up scoring very well after getting more tokens of one particular office than could be placed on my chickens. Games tonight didn't go quite so well, although I did win Jamaica after a particularly slow start, and the last three treasures (which were the only ones I picked up) being the special cards not point cards.
Messed up an Agricola game this afternoon though, was meaning to take food, got distracted by resources due to not counting properly, and have taken a begging card.

The heat pump has been looked at by a professional, and there's some of fault in the electronics. Not sure how soon the fix is going to be possible.

I went to the Monday game group last night for the first time in over a month, and it may be done for me. As the past six years have passed those that were attending at the start got married, started working full time, etc. and attendance has dropped significantly from peak. I got to play a couple of games each of Race for the Galaxy and Dominion, only one wasn't 2-players. It was kind of weird to play Dominion with physical cards again after so many games online.

I've had a week longer without work than I intended, taking a little extra time off to deal with Buckets of Dice, and started trying to bring my sleep schedule back to "normal" a few days ago. Didn't really work that well but I have actually been managing to sleep more than the six or seven hours I seemed to be peaking at. The distinct lack of physical activity won't have been good, if it wasn't for last night and Wednesday last week I'd have barely been further than 1.5 km from home for the past week. Two days I didn't even leave my flat.

Fallout Shelter is probably ending it's interest span for me. This afternoon I built the last room type I hadn't got to, and the Quests are mostly simple now that Dwellers have levelled up. I wonder if a better specced computer would lead to other games holding my interest more, I think I'd have played Skyrim longer if I could run that with YouTube playing on the TV at the same time. The FPS I typically get seems likely to be low enough that most people wouldn't put up with it. I know I managed to deal with TV display issues that my parents wouldn't have.

I started wondering a while ago if I would benefit from a dehumidifier in the flat. An air purifier also seems likely to do good.

Buckets of Dice 2017

tl/dr I'm glad I went along, but on the whole it was something of a disappointment. Having a cold for much of the weekend is going to be a big part of how I feel about the event though.

Friday night was the quiz that seems likely to continue as an annual thing as long as someone can be found to organise it. I ended up on a team that had a poor early round and gave up, aiming for funny for most of the rest of the rounds. The first round not taken seriously I'd have managed 8 of the 10 answers which was a moderate disappointment but I was entertained by the others trying to be amusing.

My Saturday ended up being about what I remember as far as getting to play games is concerned. Mostly longer games with a fair amount of waiting for other specific people to finish so I could play with them or the "what do you want to play" discussion that always takes time. Three of the games I played are my top three games so that was good, although one of them was ended earlier than it should have been by a player throwing the game because he wasn't enjoying himself. If he was a SAGA member I'd probably have put him on my (short) list of people to never play with again.

Before going to bed that night I decided I wouldn't set an alarm for Sunday morning, as I'd started to experience cold symptoms. I ended up waking up every couple of hours or so through the morning, not cold or with a sore throat or anything else to explain it. By the time I actually got up and sorted things it was about noon, I didn't actually leave until about quarter to one. Games were ending when I arrived and one game I'd probably have been otherwise quite keen to join seemed too much for me so I helped explain Eclipse and then got asked to play Dune. I probably would have been better off not agreeing to play that considering the head cold. I did still have fun though, at least until the final played round (half the group needed to leave early evening), where I overcommitted forces and was basically eliminated as a relevant force. Timing of that was such that I managed to spend most of the prize giving time in that room, and was awarded a voucher for something (I was apparently nominated for something by someone at some point). The other thing I played on Sunday was a partial game of (co-op) Eldritch Horror, where we'd managed to deal with two of the three things that would grant a victory by the end of the booking. With another hour or so I think we'd have won.

Monday started a bit later due to the less regimented session times, and many of the attendees going to breakfast together. I still showed up more than 30 minutes after the doors opened and spent a fair while doing nothing or helping shift things to help with the Grand Start. I played a couple of good games, and another I'd have enjoyed with more involved (Tiny Epic Galaxies with two doesn't seem worth it). The last game ended up being a somewhat mixed up DC Comics DBG with a player that had played before but didn't seem like he had a clue. Having all the non-Grand Start gaming in one area isn't a great ides, the RPG that happened mid afternoon was loud and distracting.

As a follow on, tonight at SAGA was very empty compared to recent weeks, no doubt because of the general tiredness/exhaustion of members. Probably also because another Club had claimed two of the rooms we use which may have led to at least one RPG group heading away. Whether counting completed games or not I nearly played more tonight that I did over the entire event weekend, although that statistic is biased heavily due to playing Coup and Red 7 multiple times tonight.

Upcoming weekend

I miss certain people when gaming more than I probably would have expected to a while ago. Not getting to hug particular people is part of that, there have been a few over the years that I'd hug while playing, or waiting for games to start, or whatever. I'm seeing less of those people now and I miss them. I might be seeing some of them this weekend, but not all. On the other hand, I'll be spending more than half of Saturday and Sunday at a game convention and should manage to play a lot of board games.

With the weekend I'm about to have I decided yesterday that I'd be declining work until near the end of next week. That means I have a full eight days without a reason to be up quite so early and will likely sleep in every day aside from those of the gaming weekend. Annoyingly enough the latest start of the three days is the one closest to me so I'll be out in the cold for the shortest time on the day that should be the warmest as I'm heading out.
If I could be assured that Thursday would be like today was I'd have been willing to work then as well. For an eight hour shift I feel like I may have worked about two hours, most of which was the 90 minutes helping load one particular job.

I played Dune again at the weekend just been, with a couple of people that hadn't played the first time and three that had. Things didn't go as well for me this time around, probably a result of not having other people pay me for things like was happening in the game a fortnight earlier. Still felt like there was a chance that I'd have managed a (combined) win, but the host had to go out for a family thing. After packing up I got offered a lift home and "suffered" a mini interrogation on the way home. Nowhere near as in depth as the conversation over chat that happened a year ago with a friend but I insinuated a truth that I normally don't talk about, which surprised me.

Simple work for the past couple of days, still tired though. I spent about half of my lunch break today napping and went to bed "early" last night. Getting up early on Saturday to attend the garage sale of the former Game Depository didn't help either, especially with me falling back to sleep and missing the offered ride.

I decided at the weekend that I'd rewatch the Star Wars trilogies, for the first time in years, probably a decade actually. With the reminder of Machete order I might watch in that order, although I'll probably watch the "first" movie as well. If the controller I have worked at the moment I was also considering playing through the LEGO Star Wars game I have, each episode after the relevant movie. That doesn't really seem worthwhile attempting with keyboard controls though, and I'm now thinking it's Episode I first in the game.

The next couple of weekends I'll be playing games again, this weekend is Dune again, with some different people than last time. Not sure if there'll be other games as well this time, or if we'll end up playing just Dune because it will last longer.
Queens Birthday weekend will be my eighth Buckets of Dice and I expect to be there more than half of both Saturday and Sunday. I doubt I'll be playing much that's long at all but there's been a request for Die Macher already. The reminder of how long it's been since I went and spent an afternoon with a friend isn't overly welcome though, the second attempt fell through due to other plans, and then neither of us has made another attempt.

Weekend of sand

I spent a significant portion of my Saturday playing a Print'n'play copy of Dune. The first game was over in the first round as the host managed to take control of another couple of the goal regions without the rest of realising that was going to happen. The second game went more as expected although there were a couple of the early rounds where it needed to be pointed out that one particular player might get control of the third region they needed to win. Game end came when the alliance option showed up and the two of us that were getting other players money during the rounds allied. It nearly ended up being all five were controlled by the two of us, but one of the three fights went the way of the defenders.
There was also a couple of other games played, one prior while waiting for the last to arrive, and one after before our host had to leave.

Star Trek: Timelines lost my interest after little more than a month. Probably due to finding Fallout Shelter and starting to play it, a game that feels similar in commitment etc. but which continues to have things to do regardless of how long I've been doing things.
The newest thing on my YouTube playlist is Subnautica, which, if I played, I'd probably spend most of my time building a base instead of progressing the story.

I started playing video games a bit more recently, even if one of them is Catan online. Yet another development of the Catan game, this time on Steam, recently became available and I spent a few hours over the weekend playing, getting a few of the achievements. The Seafarers expansion was available to play over the weekend, it will cost money now.
Mass Effect 2 was available to download and play for free recently on the Origin client. I tried to play that yesterday and was only able to get a short way into the game before getting shut out due to (what seems to be) a hardware issue. I get the feeling I'd enjoy it if I could keep playing, but I'm not interested enough to see about fixing things.
Because I couldn't get ME2 to work I ended up logging into the Blizzard app as well, where I saw that the original StarCraft was free to play. A few minutes later the download was done and I opened the program to find it had integrated with the CD version I had played a while ago. So I played about five of the first missions before logging back out.
While at the supermarket last week I purchased a Steam card and got home to find that there was a sale of Star Wars games, for less than $2 more than what I'd got as Steam card. As such I don't have 23 new games to play through.
Star Trek: Timelines is already losing the appeal it had earlier, probably in part because I keep getting new crew that I won't be able to keep without spending real cash.

YouTube videos of other games have also taken a lot of my time. Subnautica and Oxygen Not Included being the two most watched.

2017 Mini-Con 1

I spent most of my waking hours of the weekend just been on Uni grounds, playing board games or waiting for something to start. There didn't seem to be as much of the waiting around as prior years, although that may be perception due to people. Nearly one third of the games I played were Roll for the Galaxy, pretty much everything else was just played the once. Getting to play Agricola and Galaxy Trucker alone would have made it a good weekend. Attendance seemed well up on last year, that may be because there was less RPG stuff happening.
Less fun was getting home from gaming on the Saturday night, and after dealing with a bird in my room, finding out there was a flat inspection scheduled for Monday morning. Fortunately I'd decided to not work on Monday because I expected to be tired (I was) and I spent a while Monday morning cleaning up some of the accumulated mess. Things are apparently okay, although smoke alarms need put in, and airing clothing needs to be done with more ventilation.

Tomorrow morning I'm heading back to Mainly Music, it's been weird during the school holidays to not have that as part of my Wednesday activities. Not heading that far has also led to me not getting to the supermarket as much. With the weekend of games I've not been in a long enough time frame that I'm out of a bunch of things.

More games.

It seems that I'll be spending the end of my month gaming more than I have been managing for most of the past while. With today being a public holiday, and thus no work for me, I went to the Monday gaming I stopped attending a couple of months back. And stayed until nearly midnight because there were a bunch of others able to stay late as well. There was also games on Saturday that I played a few games at, including a messed up game of CV because I had only played the once and didn't read the rules beforehand.
Tonight I played Power Grid for the first time in over a year, and only the second time in two and a half years. With the rest of the players being new, or nearly so, it's unsurprising that I won, but I expect that a second game would be a lot closer. I also played a game of Dominion, that I thought I was going to lose when I saw each opponent get a Province before I was in a position to do so. Things went better when my cards started working as expected though and I had a good lead at game end. I also played a game of Exploding Kittens, which I don't think I'll be doing again, mainly because I was waiting for the last game to end and sat beside a friend.
It seems I'll be playing Galaxy Trucker on Thursday, presuming at least one other wants to play as the friend I just mentioned wants to play.

Gaming weekend.

Easter weekend for me consisted of a day doing nothing much, and then three days away from my home playing games. I didn't wake early enough on Friday or Sunday to attend the services at the church I attend, I don't feel as though I'd missed out on anything by waking up late.
Saturday I played a few games, including my first play of a game that the other three had played about a fortnight earlier. I managed to win, even with a couple of the others having what seemed like much bigger turns than I managed. I ended the night with what ended up being a more than two hour game of Terra Mystica, in which I achieved my best ever score, 20 points behind the winner.
Sunday was about as long, that started earlier, although I was later showing up than I'd expected. I played 7 games, winning everything until the evening. I'm not sure about the three games of Star Realms: Colony Wars against a guy that had learnt at the end of the morning, I think I narrowly won each of them. The last game of the evening was a DC Comics game with new Heroes and cards that I was largely unfamiliar with. One of the Super Villains had players add the top two cards of the main deck, and take Weaknesses according to the cost of one of them, the two cards I turned over were cost 7. I got one turn after that and was able to get rid of a couple of them but if ever there had been a game to have Bizzaro in my deck that was it. One of those involved was the individual I decided to avoid gaming with at all months ago, and I joined mainly as I'd felt one of the others present was also not enjoying gaming with that person. The two of us ended up spending a fair portion of that game time hugging with back rubs as well. Making what might have been a very unpleasant time actually pleasant.
Monday was an earlier start again, with a couple I very much enjoy spending time with, even aside from gaming. I played a number of games there, losing the two of them that were new to me as well as the 7 Wonders game which is about normal. I also stuck around a little after the last of the others left, and conversation went to theatre as she acts, providing me with more insight into something I'll not otherwise get to experience.

The amount of sleep I managed (or didn't) indicates that Buckets of Dice at the start of June is going to be worse for me than prior years. I may end up choosing to skip the Sunday morning, so I can sleep in more. Maybe even head to church for a while.

LiveJournal was sold several years ago and has gone through a few changes in the interim. The most recent has left me unable to continue cross-posting from Dreamwidth, which also breaks the FB posting. More importantly, there is a new USER agreement, which isn't binding in English, even though there is an English version that has to be agreed to before really continuing on. Other issues have presented as well, with a number of people I follow/respect choosing to leave the service entirely. I'll miss the RSS functionality of it (most of what I've seen for the past few years has been the feeds from a few sites) but considering how many others left from peak usage I'll not really miss a lot.
I may remember to post links to these entries manually, I may investigate the ITTT thing that I've noticed one other person using, most likely FB will no longer get any link that leads to my journal anymore.

At the start of the weekend just been I started playing Star Trek: Timelines. Progress slowed down as I've found normal for the sort of game it is, but I'm expecting to keep playing for quite a while. The last of these that I played held my interest for most of a year.

Easter weekend is going to see me spending three of the four days gaming, with three different groups. I'm not really sure what games I'll play, although I can guess at one on the Monday.

Not a lot going on

I may be relaxing a bit more about games. Not a lot of the SAGA gaming has been heavy weight of late, and while I would like to play Agricola, I've not really been wanting to play anything specific that I haven't managed to play aside from that. Getting more into the social deduction games that the new crowd are fond (understatement) of has also been fun. I played three games of Mafia (Werewolf) tonight, the first for years I think.

Easter weekend is coming up, and it seems I'm already at the point of having to choose which gaming event I attend. Three have been put forward with two on the Saturday at present.

I purchased a bunch of DVDs a couple of weeks back, and still haven't watched half of them. I keep getting into the backlog of YouTube and podcasts instead and finding new things to watch. Including a bunch of Oxygen Not Included which looks like it would hold my attention as much as Factorio and RimWorld likely would have.

Work continues to be about as much as I want it to be, with extra I'm turning down.

I decided to not work last Thursday, partly as I'd thought I'd go out to game Wednesday night. (With rain starting late afternoon I stayed home though.) After getting up later than intended I headed to the Uni and helped out a little with the "Week of the Geek" event for the day. I basically sat there most of the time, and spent a little while playing King of Tokyo or Tsuro for a short while.

I haven't really felt like I'm missing the games on Monday nights, the walk was obviously more of an issue than I'd realised. Knowing that what's being played is simple/short has probably impacted things as well. If I'd not gone back to the Wednesday group so much this year that would likely be different. It will probably lead to another drop off in yearly game plays though. I seem unlikely to ever again reach the peak of 800+ that I was at about five years ago.

I really ought to start having conversations elsewhere to cars. Considering how little time I spend in cars it cuts down on how many conversations I get to have for a start.

Another year older.

Like I've been doing for a while now I hid certain information on FB a couple of weeks ago so I'd not get as many messages about being older at the weekend. I also prevented posting to my wall by everyone at least a year ago.

I took almost all of last week off work, only going in on Tuesday and letting the agency know I wasn't interested in working the rest of the week. That left me completely free to go out and game each night, without the minimal concern for when I'd be getting home.
Gaming on Wednesday night ended up being a single relatively simple game, that took longer than it ought to have. I shouldn't complain about it though, one of my best scores, and only my second win at four player, after 17 games at that count.
Thursday night I got to play an even longer game, that was new to three of us and only the second game the owner had played. Time travel was a part of it, with resources potentially sourced from the future and needing to be sent back later to avoid penalties. I don't want to play a lot more,yet anyway, but will definitely be interested in a second game now I've got a better idea of what's going on.
A friend recently acquired some more board games and hosted games on Saturday. One of which is a game I've known about for more than half a dozen years and refused to play on the rare occasion I've been asked. Because of how I feel about that particular group I was interested in playing, had a good time, and will now consider playing with others depending on time available. I'm not going to play it at regular sessions of SAGA though if people decide to try it there, length is one of the biggest factors in what I want to play at SAGA.

I had the entire flat to myself for about 72 hours at the weekend as well, most of my time here was spent the same way I spend it when my flatmates are home. Watching YouTube on the TV and catching up on Tumblr, BGG, FB, and the other assorted sites I keep up with.

I decided today that I wasn't going back to work this week. I've been taking Wednesdays off since Mainly Music started up again and don't really want to be going to work on Thursday morning after being out gaming the night before either. Which leaves Friday, during which I'm more interested in going to the community lunch. Having a lot of rain recently probably impacted that, I don't like walking in it and we've got a bit of a heat pump issue again.

I helped a friend shift on Saturday, much of the time just waiting at the new place as I wasn't wanting to be travelling between the old and new places but felt inclined to help lift things into the house. Fairly close to me which is why I volunteered to help and a massive back yard compared to what I'd have expected for the area. Time didn't pass as fast as I thought it had when the last trip was made, I got home nearly two hours earlier than I thought I was going to.
