    Default Katoomba Library Board Games afternoon

    Spent a very pleasant 4 hours at Katoomba Library today at their Board Games Afternoon, which is every first Saturday of the month from 11-3 or so.

    It is organised by the people that run this website
    https://www.afternoonified.com.au/
    and they take along a couple of crates of games.

    It was really good fun! I played two new games, "Murder of Crows" which took about an hour but is usually a bit quicker, and "Ticket to Ride" which took about two hours, but mainly because I slowed things up a bit learning it.

    Bumped into NCArcher who was there with Mini Archer picking up some books for Lady Archer.

    Sounds good. Hope you behaved yourself Brett, you've been a bit cranky lately.

    He was accusing someone of cheating and challenging them to a duel when I saw him. Looked like fun.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Don (the Afternoonified guy) was saying that he's off to Essen (Deutcheland) in two weeks where there will be 2300 NEW board games released! I didn't know that there was even 10% of that number already existing....

    He reckons only 1000 of them will make it to Oz.

    What I'd like to find is some card playing clubs up here. Maybe not Bridge, as they seem to take it far too seriously, but there are plenty of other excellent card games (like Black Maria, Vanishing Whist, Canasta, Samba, Cribbage)

    In my Smartphone thread, someone suggested I pal up with a teenager to be shown the finer points of Android. Theo (to my left) looks like he might fit the bill. Smart, sharp, razor thin, and about 16. He did seem to have trouble comprehending that my last phone was purchased when he was around 4 or 5. The other adult (Greg) has been in IT for about 40 years and we had a bit of a chat about that while we waited for Don to show some young girls the finer points of another game. The kids (Theo & Zoe) couldn't comprehend my recollection of the first mainframe computer I worked on being 128k and bigger than the lift.... (128k being 0.00213% of my phone's RAM capacity).

    "So, like, you could stand inside it?"
    "Yup. Think of it like a Tardis."
