heya!

happy to be among a community of gamers

in decreasing order of things I do, I'm into:
- ttrpgs (I've been v v belatedly getting into DCC, but I'm a fan of lots of other weird, story-game type things)
- board games
- computer games (used to be one of my main things, now I find it harder to find the time)

Hi all! I'm looking to learn a good boardgame that is available on line and play it with soneone. (I'm currently playing Pax Porifiriana at Yucata.de.)
At home, I like solo games like Mage Knight, 7th Continent, and Gloomhaven. My current game is Gloom of Kilforth. I'm lucky to be able to set up a game, play it for a while, leave it and return to it later without having to put it away.

Would anyone like to play some board games on Tabletop Simulator at 1 pm Pacific time?

(It is 11:18 am when I'm posting this, so in just under 2 hours)

Moving to aeltarnen@mastodon.art I hope it will work better for my arts.

first experiences: two sessions of OD&D over roll20 so far ...

  • we used discord audio chat, as roll20 chat was unreliable (why? isn't both webrtc?)

  • I still prefer rolling real dice, just trust everyone!

  • Prepping seems to be more work - maps, char sheets, quite fiddly ...

  • drawing (hex)maps as you go is a pain ... I found it very disruptive, as it just takes too long

  • it's much harder to "read the table"

  • I find it more tiring. Don't plan sessions longer than 3 hours!

@kensanata how about jitsi + some collaborative drawing pad? Personally I don't think I need a dice bot. I trust my players to just roll their own real dice.

[Play From Home] Skull #PlayFromHome 

Re: the cards, the only important part is that you have 3 of the same (roses in the game) and 1 that is different (skull in the game).

You can go very creatives designing your own cards.
Since all the sets can be different, you can do collage with takeaway flyer, Frozen stickers, drawing, painting, etc. for the same game.

Making the game is a nice activity in itself.

So what do you need to make your own game of skull?

You need the mat that is the way to count the points and cards to play the game.

* Mat: Anything that is a square 10x10 cm ish. One side must be plain, one side must be colourful.
Only have some cereal packs? that will do. Only have books? that'll do. The sides needs to be well different.

* Cards: The game has 4 round coaster like 8cm diameter cards. 3 black and 1 red playing card would do

Did anyone started a hashtag on way's to play stuff while at home, potentially when self-isolating?

Should we do that ?

how about the ability to hide individual posts i don't want to see, without blocking anyone or muting anything. sometimes there's just a single outlier post and i don't want to make any permanent changes to my account over it. facebook has such a feature ("see fewer posts like this" obviously irrelevant) @Gargron

(this is not a subtoot of anyone following me on this account)

Hello everybody!

I hope we're all ready for the first challenge!

The themes for are: Adventurous, Cold, and Retro.

Keep in mind, these tags are completely open to interpretation. Apply them as literally or figuratively as you see fit. The goal is to finish it by the end of month. Even if you don't finish in time, don't be afraid to post what you have. Even an in progress piece of work can be educational to the community!

instance block recommendation, potential scrapers/follow botting 

search.fedi.app and fedi.app

A followbot from the former is currently going around, and the latter is showing people from instances already suspended by hellsite and others.
