Got home from work at 10:15 tonight, but that was mainly because I spent about an hour playing card games with some friends at work. They were both…interesting.
The first is called “Lunch Money,” and it simulates 8-
We also played “Fluxx,” a game in which the rules change as you play. In fact, some of the cards themselves change the rules (ITO limits on the cards in each player’s hand, how many cards you draw per hand, etc.), or the win conditions, or other things. The game doesn’t devolve into total chaos, mainly because all of the cards are laying out on the table (so you can see all the rules that apply at any given time), and you can only have one particular type of rule card in play (as a new card of that type is played, the old one is discarded). It’s insane, and relies a lot on the luck of the draw, but there’s still some strategy there. A lot of fun, really.
Lessee. I also bought some wooden lattice at a nearby Home Depot, in preparation for a particular gardening thing I’m gonna do. I’ve updated my garden page with more on that.
