We really need to reclaim this as game terminology. It's...the variant game after the game.

First time I actually ask for advice.
"A Kickstarter for , or Just a Pre-order with a PayPal Button?":

The best thing about Sleepy Hollow was how Ichabod Crane's semi-regular outrage at our society's liberty, privacy, and tax violations educated viewers about how far we've fallen from our first principles. I'd watch a whole show about him running fr office.

I need to finish some games before I start any new ones.

On your turn, you may want to pull things off your hands and make sure you are not the only one who can make it better.

Game design is easy! Just type "On your turn, you may ____" then let autocorrect fill in the blank.

It's sometimes so hard to know what the kiddo is talking about when I ask him about school. For days he's read a "Peace book" that has "Donald Trump on the cover" during reading time, and I'm getting ready to ask his teacher what's going on.

It's this book.

Ha ha ha ha ha!

That's a great looking deck. I confess that I've also been thinking of buying an artful deck since I read the game.

Gene Wolfe was a big influence on me, and a big influence on The Clay That Woke in particular. I'm not fannish about many writers, but I always hoped I'd have a chance to meet him.

You don't really need game jams if you're a self-fulfilling tabletop game creator even just once before. Like I have 700 6x9 plastic zip bags left from a carton from before. "Hey Paul, design something to use those bags!" Reality is a continuous game jam once you've shipped one.

I wrote this in the text of a storytelling game in January, 2009. Can you even imagine how much worse it gets in the one I wrote in November, 2016?

My kiddo is such a dawdler at getting ready for school in the morning, *except* if I tell him he can give himself a few minutes to play Pinball FX 3 if he gets dressed quickly.

Taxes done. What an ordeal. Apportioning line items between two states when you moved across the country four months later than your spouse is a nightmare. Boardgames with the kiddo today :) Then I need to dig into all the stuff I neglected to get the taxes done.

...hadn't seen anything about a next one?"

Kiddo: "Yes"

Daddy: "Lance is going to grow up to be a business executive or a right wing politician and he's going to be divorced at least three times in his life."

Kiddo: "Daddy, Lance says a hexagon is a five-sided figure and a pentagon is a six-sided figure."

Daddy: "Did you tell him what's right?"

Kiddo: "Yes, but he didn't listen to me."

Daddy: "Is Lance the same one who said Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild was the last one because...

Most art isn't a work of genius that changes its artistic or cultural landscape. Most art reaffirms and strengthens the human landscape.

Recognizing a work of genius is hard. It functions in ways you haven't been trained to appreciate. Recognizing a creator who will make more than one work of genius in their lifetime is even harder.

Gotta love the muse, even when you hate the muse.

1. Advertising shits in your head, it is a form of visual and psychological pollution.

2. Removing/Replacing/Defacing advertising is not vandalism, it is an act of tidying up that is both legally and morally defensible.

3. The Visual Realm is a Public Realm, it is part of the commons, it belongs to everyone, so nobody should be able to own it.

4. Outdoor Advertising can and should be banned, Sao Paulo did it in 2006, Grenoble followed suit in 2015.
