the new year’s weather
invites me to stay inside
I gladly comply

The weather is, indeed, terrible: +2C, raining and slippery.

Fireworks and champagne are better enjoyed indoors anyway.

Most computer gaming/hardware/whatever magazines have slowly but irrevocably turned into vehicles of consumption, only rarely do they contain anything singnificant on creating something or understanding things any deeper than the surface.

The new marshall in town, Skrolli (in finnish), aims to correct that.

The zeroth issue (a four-pager .pdf) is out already, and the first proper magazine should see daylight in early 2013.

Lego CarcassonneAs far as “awesome, but impractically expensive”-ideas are concerned, Cal Henderson’s Lego Carcassonne placed high this week.

Looks great, but the cost of the tiles that make up the basic set is north of two thousand dollars.

Then again, the ability to use minifigs as meeples does have a lot of appeal.
