I am gonna bounce around on a few things. First and most important, the election. Its been Bidens wild ride, but I think hes gonna pull it off thankfully. This country couldn’t take 4 more years of the big dumb wet president. The bdwp lacks empathy (heck he doesn’t even have a pet for freak sakes) he has weakened the country internationally, wrecked alliances and friendships with traditional allies. He has dropped the ball on COVID, he is corrupt as all get go, he owes like 400 million dollars! I mean what the heck. That and he just..... is not a pleasant person. I mean I didnt like Gw Bush but he was at least pleasant. I could go on and on but I want to say other things..
I also declare the Packers the Super Bowl champs. Its over, I declared it.
Okay, I decided to design a board game, I hope I keep up with it, I have a great idea, simple ruleset (I hope, I actually haven’t tested it yet, i’m still prototyping the components, I need terrain and technology cards, but i’m doing that tommorow during the Packers game, which honestly shouldn’t be played until Monday due to COVID stuff) It is a Train game (pick up and deliver) combined with resource rolling (aka roll dice get stuff) I think its a solid idea, I haven’t seen anything like it on the market, and I hope to get to play testing sooner than later (I still need trains, and a few other small things, maybe some resource cubes to represent demand, but NGL I think im just gonna do chits for that right meow and stations) we will see, but this process is a long one. If i get it to where i think its good, that might take a year, then I have to pitch it to companies.
Anyways, I saw a neat survey thingie putzing around the Prosebox land and imma do it:
