Re: Volunteer List

I would love to help but I'm just swamped with all this paperwork now that Dario's gone missing… though now that I think about it, perhaps I could sort it into large stacks and form a barricade (or set it alight, warding DaKeed off). And if that doesn't work as planned, I guess it's still one way to...

Gaming Environments

I've found with boardgaming, in particular, I tend to play in a range of different environments. Sometimes it will be a small-ish group at a person's house or there will be a bunch of us meeting at a games store, often with other people also there. I do tend to prefer the former, but sometimes the l...

Re: E3 Discussion

E3 2019 recently concluded, and there were a few highlights for me. I'm especially excited to see Final Fantasy VII get a remake. Though it's the only Final Fantasy title I've played in its entirety, I still have fond memories of playing it and, in fact, got my hands on the movie linked to it. I was...

Tracking Gameplays

Several people in my boardgames group track their plays through the BG Stats app, and recently I started doing the same. For me, the main motivation is having a better idea of how many unique games I've played. Though individual scores or wins can be interesting information and I'll generally track ...

Re: Quick Quotes

Our first prompt for June is: A wondrous invention From Archenemies by Marissa Meyer: Think about it. These symbols, they’re just lines on paper. But someone, at some point, had the idea to assign them a meaning. And not just that, but then to teach those meanings to other people! To envision a way ...

I loved the ambience and how friendly people were, and, in fact, joined an older couple who were also attending their first event. It was great seeing people of all ages and fit...

Game Design

As a boardgame enthusiast, I've harboured ambitions about designing my own game or two. I already have a prototype for one game idea using a theme that's very "me" and some of my favourite mechanics such as worker placement and set collection. Unfortunately though, I only seem to be able to work on ...

Re: help

Just to add what Gail said, from the main website, if you click on "Forums" in the navigation, you'll find links for all the Common Rooms. From the HOL forum, if you click on the "Quick Links" (the icon with the 3 horizontal lines), those links will also be there.
