There's the new Team Titles. We were talking about this at the last Game Day. It's something I've been playing with in my mind, and Ellie mentioned it. The Guild is up for this so it's on from next year.
We currently do Worksop, Sheffield, Nottingham and London. I would like to add another location in 2018. The 5th place will claim Blue as its colour. The 6th will take yellow. Now we just have to wait and see.
Christmas Eve will be Game Day 14, a family event. Last time we did this, Caroline won the vote, and Bernard got the Guild Title for best player. I wonder how it'll all go down in a couple of days?
The big open event is happening in Sheffield on Thursday 22nd February 2018. Patriot Games will be the place to be. I am still hoping for a 10 player game of The Resistance.
That's my Game Day update for anyone that's interested. Merry Christmas.
The only time I watch football is when the FIFA World Cup is on. The passion is there, rather than the club league games that are on all the time, where greed is more priority than the actual game. It's a shame the same louts get to play in the World Cup, but what can you do? At least they wake up a little bit and we see who's real on the pitch when it's the most important event of their lives. Only on every 4 years as well so extremely special.
For the last four World Cup's, I've supported the underdog, Japan. They've had good moments and played really well, and they've had dreadful moments where they played horribly. My honour keeps me with them, they play unique passionate football, unlike England these days, and they're a joy to watch. I'll be buying my 5th Japan Word Cup shirt before it all kicks off too.
Why Japan? It's an amazing country, their language is awesome, the culture they have is very peaceful. The only problem I have with Japan is the fish eating habits, that can be pretty disgusting. They're just as bad as the EU for catching fish and abusing the waters, and we all eat fish, we just do it differently in England, and try and avoid the fish that are nearly extinct. For the record, I've never been to Japan, would have gone by now but my mortgage is priority. Once that's done and my son has grown up, we're all having a family holiday for 2-3 weeks.
Why not England? Around about the same time as I started putting my support behind Japan, I saw the English players for what they were. It had been a few years since I stopped following the league game, I was a Leeds United supporter. But the greed was too much. Shirt prices take the piss, and players these days are NOT role models. They should be leading kids in a positive way, but instead they go out drinking, sleeping with random women, cheating on their wives, fighting, and some of them are even paedophiles. If anything, the female football game is a lot better (they play better than the men too). We don't see enough of the female game still, will it always be male led?
Many moons ago, I was learning Japanese. I was doing pretty well. New family priorities stopped me from learning and I never got back into it. My support for the Japanese football team has never ended though and I doubt it ever will.
GO NIPPON GO!!!!!!!!!
The asteroid discovered flying though our solar system a couple of months ago, which has a unique shape, is now being looked at by everyone, including having our radio telescopes pointed at it tomorrow.
Scientists believe it could possibly be an alien craft. Would be brilliant if it were, but the bad news is, if this object is a space ship, the crew are probably dead from their long journey and there will be no signals. More bad news, no matter what this thing is, it's going so fast and leaving our solar system so we'll never get a chance to research it further.
What I'd love, if it made a detour back to Earth. Wouldn't that be amazing?
There is life out there, mostly animal forms like the dinosaurs with no radio equipment whatsoever. Advanced life is short lived if they do what we're doing to our planet. I think greed is universal.
I don't talk about space much but this is quite exciting and different. Not everyone knows this but I could stand under the stars looking up for hours. Can't explain how awesome space is, so many mysteries and wonder.
Whether it's board games or video games, here's a few blogs for you to indulge into.
