Reflections on “This War of Mine”

I think I’ve got it this time. Of course, I’ve thought this at the start of every game. But this time, there are signs that my new strategy’s working. My crew’s in good health, we’ve got a respectable food stash, and no one’s sick or injured. Not only that but we’re...

Love Trains? How about some Mini Metro…

Somewhat sad confession: subway maps make me excited. That little piece of paper with candy-coloured lines blooming like veins represents travel and adventure for me.

Memrise aka How to make Korean friends

But sadly no. I just w...

Bonza, babe! Bonza!

Bonza, babe! Bonza! For the last week, this has become the catch-cry whenever anything good happens at home. “What’s something with an eye?” “Do you know the name of a tall building -not the Eiffel Tower, though…” “Something with silver in it?” “…BONZA!” If you like word games, Bonza is gonna get your...

Zen Koi Review

Mmmm… ah… You feel the tension release as a blissful, glowing amnesia ushers your concerned grown up thoughts toward the infantile fish brain that exists deep within the pre-hominid parts of your own grey matter where an evolutionary trace of a memory of a memory is held by an indivisibly small neuron conta...
