My friend Mark brought over Horus Heresy. Innovative design and loads of fun. Setup takes a bit of time, but a strong game and smart design.

There is something to be said about the ritual of clipping counters for war games. To me, it is almost worth the price of the game. It allows you to get familiar with the game components as well. Serves an in game purpose as well; makes it easier to push counters around the map without moving other chits.

I think this is an exceptional photo taken by Jonathan Jacques-Belletête. Just had to share it. Check out his instagram feed. Loads of great historical board wargames.

Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys. Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world; saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.” But it’s how they play that seemed to differ from country to country. Galimberti found that children in richer countries were more possessive with their toys and that it took time before they allowed him to play with them (which is what he would do pre-shoot before arranging the toys), whereas in poorer countries he found it much easier to quickly interact, even if there were just two or three toys between them.

As the weather cools, I feel the pull of the New Mexican climate.
