It’s been a bit quiet here, huh.
Some highlights from the past week.
A (Board)Game of Thrones!
I have played this before but this is the new version. Thanks to Phil for hosting the game (and taking these pictures). We played two rounds. I was controlling the Lannisters in the first round (where the Tyrells won), and the Baratheons in the second (where the Greyjoys won).
The second round took forever, haha. Jaykie, who was controlling the Lannisters, almost conceded after losing so many troops. But I’m glad he didn’t because it was such a hilarious comeback No, actually, I wasn’t glad because if he had conceded I would have moved my troops and won two castles easy but anyway.
This goddamn Lannister ship
went to the Baratheon side on a whim and singlehandedly (well, with the help of the Tyrell ships) sank the Stark fleets and cut off Dragonstone from the rest of the continent.
It has to be the most entertaining gameplay I have ever seen that night. “For Lannisport!”

Swensen’s last night, with the boyfriend, his sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. My happy place.
