Playing with 1,750 friends at SaltCon!

Last weekend was a blast.

For a couple days I was able to step away from everything else and just play games. It’s something I look I look forward to every year.

And once again, SaltCon hit record attendance. This was the 10th year of SaltCon and attendance clocked in at 1,750!

Without further ado, here’s my recap of this super fun event.

1 Million YouTube Views!!

Last month our board game videos reviews surpassed 1 Million total views!

We’re only getting around to writing about it now because of the other reviews and articles that we’ve been posting about the last few week.

But now it’s time to celebrate!

Hitting 1 million total video views is an amazing accomplishment that we’re super excited about. And of course it’s not stopping now. Since the day we hit the mark we’ve had another 30,000 views.

As of this writing, our total views are at 1,034,452!

Descent Journeys in the Dark – Jam Packed

I finished a project this week that was a lot of fun for me. Since it involved foamcore cutting and gluing it seemed like a kid’s school project (which we’ve done plenty of getting 4 kids through elementary school years).

But the beauty of this project was that it was all mine. Nothing to be graded as a class assignment or judged in a science fair. In fact it will hardly be seen at all – most likely by just my boys and I – since it now resides inside a board game box.

It’s a way to organize all our Descent Journeys in the Dark 2nd edition board game components into 1 game box!

Well, this week I had that great experience again.
After having been on a business trip for most of this week, I returned home nice an tired. My flight home lasted most of the day and when I finally got home, I was ready to just plop down and close my eyes for a good rest.

S.O.S. I’m Stranded

Dear Diary,

Today… Well today was rather depressing. But let me start at the beginning…

It was all a vacation. The most elegant island in the world! That’s what it said on all of the brochures, that’s what all my friends back at home (safe, I must add) said, and most importantly, that’s what our late captain said. So I thought, What the heck?! And foolishly, I signed the contract to get away for three weeks (which was essentially signing away my life, I later realized) . . . (A little too late I might add).
