Working on the Game continues, with a sweet game played saturday at the Wereloft.

Got a bunch of adults together this time and it interestingly went “hack and slash” from the get go, with only one of the players exploring the Enchanting method of gameplay.  That was a first and I need to change the language on the Hydra card, because they killed it on the first round and I think it will play better if it comes back every round regardless.

The players also wanted more interaction with the tile cards, with some ideas getting thrown around.  I’m still on the fence about it, but dont’ have any concrete reasons why.

Good times.

In other news, I applied for a DINK fellowship.  It looks like a cool conference and while I like the way the organizers are looking for diversity with their application, I found it challenging to answer them honestly.  Sitting at home later it became clear to me that it is because they are question’s I’ve never sought to define for myself and while they may be pertinent to the national conversation, I don’t find them to be useful ideas to pitch around in my own head.  They get in the way of the work.

One question, “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” gave me pause because I’m nearing the end of my current 5 year plan and it was really shocking to realize I didn’t have a handle on where I’m headed the next ten years.  So thank you DINK organizers, that was a nice zen moment that’s been about five years coming 🙂
