While I was waiting around last night for a midnight "dial-in and break the live database" slot, I was playing with my Icehouse pieces and learning Martian Chess - a chess-like strategy game in which location, rather than piece color, determines which pieces you may move.

I've got at least two ideas for my own Icehouse games - one is a simple derivative of Titan, the other is a simple derivative of DBA using ruler, dice, and Icehouse pieces as military formations. See the connecting theme? (Yes, "simple derivative = "ripping off other peoples ideas")

I had my jabs for Nepal this morning - what with lost sleep and a body full of antigens I feel a bit groggy. Will it stop me going to Ceroc tonight? I don't think so!
