Blue Moon heaven

This is a fantastic boon for me - Reiner Knizia's Blue Moon is one of my top ten games of all time, but I only know one other person (my good friend Les) who likes to play it. But now, there is a wonderful computer program that I can practice against. It's a free download!

And it beats me every time......

Bring it on

I didn't do very well in our Christmas challenge - 3rd out of 4, only managing to beat Phil, who had never played Euphrat & Tigris before. But never say die, I've opened another readers' game for you over at BoardGameGeek. It's called Nucleus Accumbens, password "nimrods".

Don't miss Phil's retelling of Frankenstein for modern audiences.

Thanks a lot Steve

Yesterday iTunes suddenly decided, for some reason, that it had no tunes in its library. Thankfully they were all still there (all 3800 of them) on disk, so all I had to do was point iTunes at the folder. Then there was the scary business of reloading them onto my iPod, which it no longer recognized of course. But the annoying thing is that all my playlists have disappeared, and all my ratings too. So I can no longer listen to my "Friday" playlist or my "5-star rated" playlist. Grr.....
