Hey Story Warriors!
We’re doing one more (maybe final!?) playtest of Volume 2! This time in Chicago! The windy apple! Home of the famous sports team the Chicago Scruff MacGruffs! The setting of Hey Arnold I think? CHICAGO! That one building! That big mirror! CHICAGO! City of lights!
Anyway, I have no idea what I’m doing in Chicago but Chicagoland Games: The Dice Dojo has graciously agreed to host us, sight unseen! Here’s the details!
- WHEN: Saturday, Nov 23th, from 3pm to 6pm!
- WHERE: Chicagoland Games: The Dice Dojo (pictured above)
- ADDRESS: 5550 N Broadway St, Chicago, (Bryn Mawr red line)
- PHONE: Brad: 347 266 4972 (in case you get lost!)
Come hang out with us and help us playtest Story War volume 2! Your feedback is going to help us shape the final game! We put a huge emphasis on accessibility so if you could bring along friends who don’t normally play board games that would be great! In fact, if you bring along at least three friends (yourself and three others) we’ll give you a FREE copy of Volume 1!
PS: We might have a local Chicago celebrity visiting the playtest! Is it Oprah? Is it Max Temkin creator of Cards Against Humanity? Is it a deep dish pizza because Max had something better to do on Saturday and I didn’t ask him if he was actually coming before I name dropped him in this post? Only one way to find out!!!
See you guys on SATURDAY in CHICAGO!
(And if you can’t make it, could you please reblog this post so everyone knows about our stupidly last minute playtest in CHICAGO!)
Hey Chicago, go to this stupidly last minute playtest on Saturday. I’ve played Story War, and it’s great fun.
Puzzle #103: Words From Home
What geographical trait do all these words have in common?
(There may be a few more words that can be added to this list, but not many.)
Puzzle #102: A Movie Pitch
I have an idea for a movie that Sam Raimi should make, starring Queen Latifah and Mila Kunis, about the plight of the Dodo bird, set in a particular city in Texas. Can you guess which city?
Make ’em six
Joey just forwarded on this math puzzle to me. I’m having a hard time tracking down who created it, so let me know if you know. It’s a good one.
Make each equation true by adding only math symbols. That means no numbers at all. Just symbols.
0 0 0 = 6
1 1 1 = 6
2 2 2 = 6
3 3 3 = 6
4 4 4 = 6
5 5 5 = 6
6 6 6 = 6
7 7 7 = 6
8 8 8 = 6
9 9 9 = 6
A really nifty Kickstarter for puzzle fans.
On its face, the Midnight Clock is a fully-functional 24-hour clock with tick marks on every hour and symbols representing approximate sunrise, midday, sunset, and midnight. But the inquisitive will find that its riddle acts as a guide to removing the keys associated with each symbol in a certain order - and one at a certain time - allowing it to be opened to reveal a hidden compartment and almost any book you wish to keep there.
