Now that summer is over, I thought I'd compile some photos of games we've played over the last three months.
We love Pandemic, but we have such a hard time winning. Late last June, the yellow plague took root in remote Santiago, and we neglected to deal with it until the outbreak counter reached the critical point.

One of the great things about a convention like the World Boardgaming Championships is having the opportunity to interact with fellow designers. The open gaming room at WBC was practically an informal design laboratory of demonstrations and playtesting.
My friend Keith F. and I had only the briefest chat with one of my favorite designers, T.C. Petty III, whom I met at WBC last year when he was demonstrating the semi-cooperative Viva Java, a game that has already seen its successful Kickstarter campaign and has a Dice Hate Me release expected this month. T.C. is working on a couple of ideas that sound characteristically original and off-beat. It will be fun to see what creations find their way to production out of his unique perspective on game design.
