It completely slipped my mind, but I completely forgot to mention that I also popped into Playin' Games on Saturday too. Naturally this means that I've bought some new games to play. Typically I've a lousy memory for their names, but IIRC I bought Gloom, Unspeakable Words and Infernal Contraption.

I suspect a fair number of you will be interested in Unspeakable Words. It's a bit like Scrabble for Cthuhlu players. Very much like in fact as the aim of the game is to make up words (real ones) using the letter in your hand to gain the highest score. The letters are scored based on the number of angles and thus Hounds of Tindalos they have in them. Once you've made a word, you have to roll higher than it's score on a d20 or go screaming insane.

Gloom is a macabre game where you each have a family and your goal is to give each member a gloriously depressing and unhappy death. It has the novel approach of using transparent cards, so you stack them up on each character as you play them.

Infernal Contraption is a very silly game where you have to build a machine (out of cards) that drains the resources of your other goblin bodgers/players.

I'd be interested in giving them a whirl at some point if anyone wants to try them out?

Spent most of last night nosing around my Talisman set to see what I had and what was missing. Surprisingly it's mostly intact apart from couple of cards.

Then I went on Second Life to try out the scripting stuff, but ended up dancing at a club cos of [ profile] gothicat DJing there and only really having time to experiment with building another item. This time a screwdriver. Discovered the limits of how small you can make something. It's much easier building stuff big and then shrinking it though :)

Spent the past few days playing "God of War". I highly recommend it to all and sundry. It's blood thirsty and psychotic and even has boobies now and then. Standard platform puzzling fun otherwise. Camera work ain't too shoddy, but can get annoying in small confined places.

And of special note to [ profile] cream_horn, I've just watched two episodes of Tru Calling. It's not that shabby either. Although I was expecting the Groundhog day aspect to repeat things a bit more than just once. Clearly she (girl who played Faith in Buffy) is more clever than Bill Murray :)

Other than that, I nearly did myself a mischief by not drinking enough on Saturday and then walking in the stupidly hot sun to the DA game. The DA game was mildly frustrating. I get the distinct impression I'm missing out on something. Probably comes from not doing downtimes.
