Free Time

Well, now we know what the dog does when nobody is looking. Actually, I'm counting on that mutt to support me in my old age. I'm sure the dog is better at picking stocks than I am.

I actually managed to make some progress in my growing backlog of work over the weekend and had a little time to lose myself in some new games.

The first is Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. I have to say that this game is a must-have for any owner of a Nintendo DS. To say it's a puzzle game is like saying Manhatten is an island. Both statements are true, but miss the depth of what's really going on. Take a little of the original Mario vs. Donkey Kong, throw in some fun from Lemmings and the classic Donkey Kong game and open up the full range of the DS touch screen capabilities and you've got an idea of what this game packs. It'll tickle your brain and make you smile. 'Nuff said.

I also got to play Heroscape, a three dimensional board game that just about anyone can play.
If you like your games in the real world, then this game might be for you. It looks a bit daunting at first, but it's really quite easy to set up and start playing. The concept is that there is an eternal war taking place in Vahalla, where fighting is what folks do for fun all day, but really, who needs to understand what's going on. Pick your army (choices go across the spectrum from Vikings to WWII Airborne to dragons and space-age robots) and see who wins. Of course, there's a plethora of add-on supplements including new armies (Colonial Minutemen and Cyborg Gorillas) and new terrain features. There's also an upcoming set featuring the Marvel Superheroes coming out next month. My wallet may never be the same...
