Ravine is a “cooperative survival card game” by the team that created one of my favourite party games, Spaceteam. I’m a big fan of coop games for games nights, and this one looks like it will be a lot of fun. The game’s Kickstarter campaign will wrap up on December 7th, so now is the time to back. There’s a print and play version available to see how it plays. Knowing the team behind this game can deliver a great experience, I’m excited to get my hands on it to play and see if I can survive a night in Ravine with my friends.




Zombies, Run! 2017 November 24

I’ve started again from the beginning of the Zombies, Run! story for my morning run. It was good to be running on the Chain of Lakes trail again for the first time in a while. I managed a good pace considering I’m carrying 20 lb of speakers from a Value Village stop.

Zombies, Run! 2017 November 12

On this chilly Autumn morning I ran the last mission of Zombies, Run! season 6. It was a rewarding end to the story arc, with the sacrifice, overblown machinations and suspense that should be expected when confronting a fascist trying to launch a nuclear strike from her volcanic base. The AI subplot that began in one of the virtual races had a satisfying turn that redeemed some of the thinner tropes it used earlier.

Hillsburn’s “Strange Clouds”

Ahead of their new album in February, Hillsburn has released a hopeful, defiant first single with a great video.

All right, I’m tired of riddles.
Never been lower.
Don’t know anyone who sleeps at night.
Don’t know anyone who’s sober.
Our wasted youth, my wasted friends,
Is a circus of purchase of meaningless ends.

But there’s no way I’m going under.
No way.
Strike up the drummer, play me a song.
I’m floating on.
Strange clouds are gathering.
No way I’m going under.
No way.
Strike up the drummer, play me a song.
I’m floating on.
Strange clouds are gathering.

Zombies, Run! 2017 November 2

My Thursday night run was one of my most satisfying, even though I was slower than normal, because Zombies, Run! finally did a mission inspired by The Prisoner. I grew up with the show and recently have been revisiting it in a few different media, so it was a delightful surprise to run through season 6’s “Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling“. What could be more motivating than being chased by Rover in the Village? If only they could get the license to do The Prisoner, Run!


I decided to keep things simple for Halloween this year and went all in on head sprouts.
