Day #4, I’ve Been Taking Photos of Splicers

Haunting music plays through crackling speakers. Water flows, hypnotic in it’s ripples. Lush vegetation sprawls through the area.

You hear a mother talking to her baby. Singing a lullaby.

Quickly, I ready my camera and move as close as possible, snapping right as the woman turns.

This is Bioshock.

So today, because of my six month deal, I re-discovered another gem of a computer game. Bioshock. It’s been sitting in my Steam list for a while. I got through about a quarter, maybe less.

ah-prod-swordnskull-picmain-enHave been having a blast with it.

We played some great sessions of Sword and Skull today. Went a lot further than before. The kids are really loving the interaction, decision making, rolling of dice.

Have to get some other board/dice games.

The kids have created this game in the back yard (could be played anywhere, kind of). We’ve got a mega tub of big chalk pieces. Whoever is "in" takes a piece, and runs around the yard writing a series of numbers, let’s say 1 to 5. The other people are inside.

The object is for the seekers to find each of the numbers, preferably in order, although it usually degenerates. Once the numbers get past about 15, it becomes harder to recognise them, even after changing the color of the chalk. Particularly when the locations are forgotten by those who drew them.

Was a wonderful day. Looking forward to what the rest may bring.
