I've been playing a lot of Dota 2 recently. And I'm not very good. I'm still re-learning what most of the heroes do — even though I've got almost 300 hours invested in the game, I basically stopped playing it for three years. Or something like that.
I'm playing Ranked Play. And losing. A lot. But you know what? I'm still having a blast.
I'll undoubtedly be squeezing in a little more Dota over the weekend. But something I'll also be giving a whirl is Scythe, a 1920's steampunk board game that any Civilization fan will feel right at home with. It's expensive as far as board games go — $170 — but by God it's quality.
You'll probably read more about that on Monday.
What will you be playing this weekend? And would anyone like to party up in Dota?
