Check out this amazing poster featuring a stupendous array of supernatural collective nouns. Yes, we've all heard of a "murder of crows" or a "flock of geese", but how about an "audacity of gargoyles" or a "gossip of mermaids?" Check out the full poster and more of David Malki's wonderful work here. Hat tip to Adrianna Prosser who tweeted about this a while back.

NYTimes piece on the impact of Tech on the board game industry

This is pretty much just an elaborate ad for CAT excavators and the like, but still pretty awesome!
Came upon this on Reddit the other day. Priceless!
Just booked the next MeetUp for Roslindale Table Top Games.
We meet about once a month to play old (and new!) favorites and sometimes test out prototypes of new stuff I'm working on.
Our next gathering will be on Sunday, January 12th at:
Redd's in Rozzie
4257 Washington St
Roslindale, MA 02131
Stop by for a drink and some great food, and play a few games with us!
Huge thanks to Jenny Williams of GeekDad for her glowing review of the Anomia Party Edition.
We had such a great time coming up with the hundreds of new categories for the Party Edition, it's nice to know that our work is appreciated!
Jenny says the Party Edition is "... great for parties or non-parties. Great for families, teens, groups of adults, or inter-generational play. It will make you laugh, and encourage you to be able to find amusement in not always having the answers. It’s fantastic."
We couldn't agree more!
Just realized we have more swords than umbrellas in our umbrella bucket.
I count five swords, one dagger and only two umbrellas.
I should also point out that of the two umbrellas, only one is functional, whereas all the swords are ready to go!
I'm not exactly sure what this means about my family (or my parenting skills) but I'm pretty sure these swords simply cannot be good news for the rain.
