Other Games / Re: Castles of Mad King Ludwig

I got to play five or six games of this yesterday and today, would recommend anyone giving it a try - we all liked it a lot, it was one of the most fun new games (for me) I remember trying in a while. Not sure how it would hold up to continuous playing, we were all first-timers, but I think it probably would.

Littlefinger's show!plot started going wrong when they decided to have him give Sansa to the Boltons, a decision that made absolutely no sense, except from the showrunners' perspective of wanting Sansa to suffer even more horror than she had already suffered.
I remember being a blue-eyed, hopeful young man on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what LF's master plan was with that.

Such a sweet summer child I was.

I feel the show kind of screwed up making Bran (and Arya to an extent) too powerful. All the political scheming (which was always the thing I enjoyed the most) just feels very pointless now that they have human wikipedia Bran hanging around no one is even bothering to consult. (Of course Sam walks in and all of a sudden Bran is so very helpful going back and checking things, but that's a whole another can of worms).

There are cool things like flying ice dragons bringing down the wall, but I'm way past the point of suspending disbelief because the writing's been so bad ever since they surpassed the books. The show is basically your standard Hollywood action flick at this point. GRRM would probably be disappointed it has come to this, if he wasn't raking in millions upon millions as a result.

I'd ban Lighthouse and Possession.
Why lighthouse?


don't really dislike any other cards (yet atleast). About half my games are against a real life friend and we often put black market in the board and randomize the rest, banning possession if available.

I've grown to think that BM might be my slice of dominion heaven.

Episode 1 of the leftovers is finished, when's the "I'm hooked" episode? Lost takes pilot part 1/2 and episode 2 then your in. I am expecting a similar timeline for this.
I watched two episodes of Lost a few years back and never got around to watching more. I wasn't hating it by any means, but stopped seeing the girl I was watching it with and apparently wasn't invested enough to keep going. I feel I should watch it just so I could bombard Robz with questions and thoughts about it.

I'm going to finally watch The Leftovers as well once I'm done rewatching The Wire. Unless I just hop straight back to the wire from the beginning again, which I might. It's so good.

I just got home from seeing Rogue One, and I would say it's a strong contender for the worst film I've ever seen (I don't watch a lot of movies).

There were people leaving the theater 15 minutes into the movie, and also 15 minutes before the end, which I found amusing.

I'm about halfway through Narcos. It's good!

If anyone has bitcoins and wants to try some games, send me a pm!

Where is Ghost? Didn't see him for the last 2 series.
For episode 9 they said it was either Ghost or Wun-Wun for the battle, doing them both wasn't viable for budget reasons.

Best episode of the season I thought!

This guy got cast on the next season, maybe there is something like this you could do as well?

Edit: He has a cool first name.

If you don't bother to play your coppers individually when you have 5c and want to buy a lab, playing them individually when you have 6c and want to buy a lab doesn't really conceal any information.

Amazing game indeed. Curry's last year and a half is the sickest peak of all time, dude is just so ridiculous.

Isn't audible for audiobooks? I use iBooks for reading ebooks, and find it very convenient. I've never listened to an audio book, but the idea sounds interesting.

It was in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It was my understanding that they'd do it every time the roads were too snowed for the school bus to be able to pick everyone up, so they'd close the school not to deny education from those who lived further out. In Finland we never had off days either, but then again we also don't have school busses so the same condition couldn't be applied.

Snow days are cute. I really loved them when I went to school in Canada.

Our version of snow days was that we didn't have to go outside to play during recess if it was colder than 20 celsius.

In hindsight even that was probably mostly to save the teachers from having to supervise us.

Not only have I never watched Survivor, I think Survivor, as the first mainstream reality show, is one of the many things that ruined American television.
I thought it was pretty much the consensus that we are living the golden age of (American) television right now. What do you mean?

I don't watch any other reality than Survivor, and obviously don't mean that Survivor or reality has contributed to this being the best time for TV in the slightest.

General Discussion / Re: My Survivor audition video
« on: December 29, 2015, 02:33:41 pm »
Nice!  :) I thought this was much nicer looking and better than your previous videos. Some not so organized thoughts:

I didn't really get the part with the dog, seemed redundant so if it's too long I would start with cutting that and tightening the scene with the wife. I thought the best parts where the climbing parts and the forum survivor stuff - especially the shot where you had your Probst shirt on was golden.

I like that you have an angle now,  being the nerdy, smart and competitive yet silly/childish and obnoxious superfan. It's a sad reality that they only cast one of those per season, and it must be the most competed spot there is. You know, if you were an LA mactor or a bikini blonde or even a cop, construction worker or a firefighter, you'd realistically have such a better chance, unfortunate but it is what it is. I can't think of a better angle for you though, ultimately you just have to find the side of yourself that convinces them you'd make great tv.

The question about allotting to repeating how much of a fan you are and how much you want this is interesting. Maybe it's best to just show that with the f.ds survivor segments? Like, you wearing a collared blue shirt and putting someones torch out saying "Robz, the tribe has spoken" SHOWS how much of a superfan you are, which ought to stand out from the hordes of other fans SAYING it in their video, in the vein of Cochran having written a Harvard paper on jury management sold them on his passion. Does that make sense?

Also, maybe use the picture with Rupert at some point? You know how they love Rupert, and it shows long term commitment.

tldr: Play up the funny, smart, competitive obnoxious and comfortable with yourself qualities (and if you can think of others, all the better). I don't think "I want this so much" is the best way to stand out considering the casting spot you are fighting of.

Lastly, GOOD LUCK!!! <3<3<3  I'm giddy just thinking about how awesome it would be if you got on.
