Loads of people are starting to post their December Talking Meme posts today. So I am not.
Last night I discovered Wil Wheaton's Tabletop series. I'd heard of it before, because I read his blog, but had assumed that it was the sort of thing little boys do in Games Workshop with little figures and I don't know what else goes on. But nothing as dirty as that sentence sounds. Then earlier in the year I discovered the board game cafe in the city and they mentioned something on Facebook/Twitter about Tabletop and it being board games day or something like that. And I realised Tabletop was about board games. It just took me until last night to get round to watching the first episode of season 3 (which went up a while ago, I just had it bookmarked for a while). And it was fun. More fun that you'd expect from watching a group of people playing a game - usually it's more fun to play. Except when it comes to Settlers of Cataan when I prefer being the one to hand out the sheep.
On a different gaming subject, I have been playing a lot of Doctor Who Legacy on my iPod (it's annoyingly, too new to play on the old iPad). I've played it so much I've got bored and need to find myself a new challenge - so it's just as well they're doing an advent calendar with something new every day this month until Christmas. It seems like a match 3 gems game at first, but then there are other strategies involved. It's a game that's really hard to start, but once you put some time into it, you start to have more options.
I should do a post sometime about the games I play on the iPod and iPad. My favourite is Dumb Ways to Die (it's short and simple and silly - a good combination in any game) and they've just brought out Dumb Ways to Die 2 (only once did I lick the pole to see how that would kill me).
And at some point I should get back to Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, since I've borrowed it from my sister.
