So I was in the middle of typing a post an hour ago when BAM! - dreaded blue screen of death appears. Fortunately, Chrome's pretty good at autosaves and I didn't lose a great deal of work.

But Christ, there have been times when things have gone real bad.


A couple of my best friends held their house warming the other night, and while it was hot as fuck it was also a good opportunity to break out a few video and board games to fill in the time.


For the last week or so, there's been a copy of Boss Monster sitting on the living room table at home. It's a card/tabletop game where you build a dungeon and fight off adventures who wander through, laying traps and using items to stymie their gold-hunting ways.

There's so many board and tabletop games released these days, and there's never enough time to play them all. But it got me thinking: what are your favourites?


The new year means it's time for resolutions. This year I'd like to practise my guitar more, be as fit as I was in my 20s, figure out my romantic life — but I probably won't do any of those things. But I might, with your help, finish The Witcher 3.


At some point I resolved to stop making New Year's resolutions because I was so bad at following through on them. But for that very reason, I returned the next year and every year since inspired to recommit myself to any number of goals I'd probably never achieve.


We don't always play games the way we're supposed to. We've all pulled out that little trick that helps us get through a tough area, beat a boss or get a higher score. It might not be turning on God Mode in the developer console or using an aimbot, but it's not quite on the level either. But it's fine. It isn't cheating. Right?
