While our friends are hosting a more official games day in a couple weeks, post New Years, where we’ll all gather, nerds that we are, and binge on food, drink and board games with some good company, today had it’s moments. We played some games.
Last night, I rolled through midnight grooving on some ten pin bowling with a small group of my running friends. I hadn’t played in years and somehow, groove fully enabled, won both games. To be fair, I was the only one not really drinking.
This morning I poked away at our jigsaw puzzle a little more.
Then, I caught Claire rolling through her cousin’s Minecraft server. I don’t exactly know what she was up to there, but the private, creative-enabled block land has the two girls competing for “most epic castle” award, and I think her cousin crept ahead… causing a little frustration in our living room.
Real bowling got us in the mood for some fake bowling, and we dusted off the Wii and played a round of that… followed by some other Wii-ish sports.
And then I scuttled off to the basement where, having picked up a super-cheap copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition on the holiday Steam sale the other day, I booted that up and tried to see if I could keep a small virtual aircaft from crashing whilst flying over a rough approximation of Edmonton… seemingly rendered from geological and municipal planning data purchased in the late 1990s.
