Scavenger Hunt

I feel a bit remiss for failing to mention this before.

Goodman Games presents Scavenger Hunt, a carrion-collecting card game for 2-6 players.

Game design by Gunnar Hultgren (AKA Miscellaneous G™).
Art by Brendon and Brian Fraim.

Scavenger Hunt

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Scavenger Hunt several months ago, when it existed only on index cards. Though I haven’t picked up my own copy yet (Comic Heaven was sold out last week), I’ve seen the deck that Miscellaneous G™ used to run demos down at GenCon last month and it looks incredible. The art is fantastic and funny, the card layout is sharp, and I know from experience that the gameplay is a lot of fun.

Whither KJToo.com?

I’m not sure what the problem is, but the availability of KJToo.com over the past couple of days has been a bit flaky. I don’t remember my midPhase customer service credentials off the top of my head, so I can’t log a service ticket from work, but I’ll create one when I get home tonight. I can’t complain too much about midPhase as they are incredibly inexpensive, but it would be nice to get some notice when they’re going to be messing with the server on which KJToo.com resides.

The end is the beginning is the end.

When you hear people wax poetic about how their TiVoOr other, inferior DVR. has changed the way they watch television, you may want to scoff. I mean, what’s the big deal, right? It’s frickin’ teevee for God’s sake! The thing isn’t the second coming of the Messiah, it’s an over-priced, over-hyped, fancypants VCR! Get a life already!

Yeah. Okay. You need to shut up. Seriously. Until you’ve got one, you couldn’t possibly understand. You’ve never been there!

TiVo served up some tasty, tasty viewing victuals for me to watch over the weekend.

LOST season premiere
Ah, we love the LOST. The season premiere was a fairly strong start, although I was a bit disappointed with how the “surprise” at the end of the episode was entirely unsurprising. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it was pretty much telegraphed in one of the flashback sequences.

Battlestar Galactica season finale
Very nice cliffhanger to wrap up the season, and it shows just how much the younger and elder Adamas are alike. The new season begins in January, which is about three months sooner than I expected.

Path of Destruction
Okay, I haven’t actually watched this yet. On the one hand, it’s a movie that was on the Sci-Fi Channel at 8:00 Saturday evening. On the other hand, Danika McKellar is not hard to look at.

Grey’s Anatomy season premiere
This wasn’t actually on the TiVo, and I really don’t know why I watched it. Laura had just finished watching the season premiere of Dangerous Housewives and wandered off in search of something on the Internet. The show was on and I don’t mind looking at Sandra Oh, so I watched it and played XIII during the commercial breaks. It seems like a cross between ER and Scrubs.

Also, last week’s Threshold, which was better than expected, and a couple episodes of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart from last week. I like sitting down for an hour and a half and watching an entire week’s worth of The Daily Show. It’s like mainlining Funny.

Still to come: Last night’s episode of Surface. Oh, and I still haven’t watched Collateral, which has been sitting there for at least two months.
