I started playing Hearthstone on my phone. You can basically go back and reread the post I did about Magic: the Gathering for thoughts on this sort of game. I don’t like Hearthstone as much as Magic, but it’s going to be good enough to play between the time that I run out of content in Magic 2015, and when Magic: Origins becomes available for Android phones.
Hearthstone has the added bonus though of being a game that Kelly-Jo plays, so we can actually play together.
In other news, I finished Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam yesterday, and enjoyed it to the end. I feel like I would have benefited from rereading the first two books in the series before getting to this one, but it works well enough with just the recap at the start.
I’m picking away at Celts in the Americas again, and about to start N K Jemison’s Inheritance Trilogy.
I spent a good chunk of last evening looking at Lego sets, with an eye towards what to get Cohen for his birthday or Christmas. He’s really into construction vehicles right now, and they’ve got a few of those out in this year’s City line. I looked at some of the older City sets on Bricklink too, because he’s started talking about getting some of the sets that he sees in the back of his instruction books, and those aren’t all available any more.
And yes, of course I looked at sets for me too, because Lego.
