Hi, I'm Sarah Reed.

My other interests include: , and other stuff

I'll mostly be focusing on , but may post a bit about other things as the mood strikes me.

Happy to be here!

Very excited to get Marvel Dice Throne in November’s math trade! I feel we got a great deal, having traded away Walnut Grove, but hopefully everyone in the trade chain is happy with what they got. I know I’m very excited to play this!

I get to present games to a new audience... and in selecting games not only am I looking for ones that fit the thematic criteria - but I am also looking at who the designers/publishers are to ensure I'm promoting great from great folks.

Prioritizing can be as small of an action as being mindful when you have the opportunity to spread the hobby. Lots of folks make good games - why not uplift the ones who contribute to making gaming better?

What’s rolling in this week?

Use the clue to unscramble the words to see what game we’ll be talking about in Wednesday’s videos.

Clue: Green Thumb

Unscramble Each Word: TADVERN

I highly recommend watching Wednesday on Netflix and the Guardians of the Galaxy special on Disney+. Both really, really good. 😊👍

I'm thankful I'm finally feeling better enough to edit our Rolling With Two videos. I have a backlog to get through and nothing posted for next week. Hope to remedy that today. 😊

struggling with burn-out & depression 

I really wanted to take this week off from work as it's been really stressful lately, but there's just too much to do.

I did managed to get reduced hours each day, so I'm able to sleep in, work the morning & take off early. I'm grateful for that concession, even though it really just means I work harder for the few hours I'm logged on.😖​

Thankfully tomorrow is Wed & then I'm off Thur/Fri. Just don't know how good of company I'll be for family gatherings. 😞​

My wife and I love playing Palace with a 52-card deck, but we gave ourselves a challenge. We took the exquisite River and Stone deck created by @bethsobel and devised a way to include her four extra cards in the game.

Looking for Podcast Guests 

I just finished editing the 4th episode of Season 5 of my podcast. If you are a board game or RPG designer or artist or know someone who is or who would be interested in being on the show, let’s talk! I especially want to use it to give additional voice to indie games and under-represented creators

yogurt helps stomach when taking antibiotics 

I'm trying to look on the bright side with all the bad things happening right now, like the infection in my toe. I'm on my third round of antibiotics. 🙄​😒​😞​

This new medicine is stronger and could upset my stomach. So the doctor recommended I take it with yogurt. So I'm livening up the yogurt with some salted caramel granola and it is so yummy. I've done 3 doses so far and no issues. So yay! Winning! 😅​

@host when doing CWs, is it a good or bad idea to use hashtags. I have been, with the thought that people could find or block it easier, but I haven't seen others use hashtags so now I'm wondering if I'm doing it wrong. Is there an etiquette to CWs?

#MentalHealth Not Enough Spoons 

Life has been really rough lately, but I'm making it through. Apologies to anyone I'm not responding quickly to. I'm doing my best to handle what I can each day, but I only have so many spoons.

I'm keeping my eyes on next week. Hopefully I'll be able to take the week off from work and really recharge and recoup. And play some games. :blue_meeple:

I originally had a New Years resolution (more of a hope) to hit 500 subs this year. I don’t think we’ll hit that, but maybe we can do 400. Tell your neighbors, friends, or the stranger on the bus about us! Can we do it !?!? youtube.com/c/allgamesnewandol
