Open Thread: Talk amongst yourselves

(by chris the cynic)

I’m kind of sick (nothing dangerous; just making it hard to think) today so . . . no one seems to care about the prompts anyway, no prompt this week.

Also, for any who don’t know, we have a space set aside for political discussion.  This is due to the current election cycle in the US being one particularly filled with things that some people need to get away from, and thus would not like in open threads.  That’s a perpetual political thread, and won’t be closed or replaced unless it gets overly full.

[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]

    Next week I plan to be in Essen (Germany) for SPIEL, the huge boardgames show.

    I don’t imagine that there will be any other Slacktipresence, but if you’re expecting to be in the area, give me a shout.

    Board games, yaaay!

    We went to Family Game Night at church and finally played Night of the Grand Octopus and I also learned to play Chinese checkers.

    I don’t know enough about chess to understand movies about it but Queen of Katwe is both awesome and approachable even at my level of cluelessness.
