Busy Weekend

We started the weekend early: on Friday we drove to Madison to hang out with Kathleen and eat Laotian food. It was pretty relaxed and,  though we frequently like to play a game, we only got in a few turns of Empire Builder before it was time to pack up for home.

EB, for those who aren’t familiar, is a crayon rails game which tend to be time hogs. Britt and I often forget that as we’re veteran two-player crayon rails players and we can frequently run through a game in 1.5 to 2 hours when it’s just us.

Nonetheless, we had a good time hanging out with Kathleen, as expected.

Saturday, I had to work so that kept me busy into 5pm. Afterward, we mostly just potatoed the couch with first season episodes of The Mentalist and Fringe. Television critique will be another post.

Yesterday, we rounded out the weekend with a trip down to Rockford for roleplaying. There, we wrapped up the first leg of our initial post-apocalyptic Spirit of the Century adventure. We had already captured a gang-leader and several of his cronies and were heading back to base when more of his gang showed up and foolishly destroyed some structural supports of the building we were in. This just meant that we had to beat up the back-up and escape before the building collapsed which, happily, we did. Outside it was your usual post-apocalyptic nuclear-type winter (actually a mass-driver winter but who’s counting) so we had to hole up with our prisoners in an abandoned meat-locker until it blew over. Shenanigans, of course, continued to ensue and a good time was had by all.

After the adventure, we had a little time left before I had to get Britt back to Beloit for her meditation group, so we ended up talking about the Amber scenario that I’m running at ACNW and arranging a time for me to run a playtest. We also played a game of Dominion.

Then, it was home and a quick run to the grocery store for me while Britt was meditating. After which it was pancakes and more episodes of The Mentalist and Fringe before bed.

A pretty busy weekend for us.
