  • Blood Bowl and Bainbridge

    I got up this morning, let the chickens out of their henhouse so they could run around their coop, walked a few blocks over to find an espresso (not to my liking – either badly made or over roasted) and a fairly solid salted caramel tart, and walked back to play a couple of games […]

I’d forgotten that it starts with quite a scary opening, and […]
