Project: Board Game (status update)

I'm going to pretend that I've had a number of earlier posts about the board game I'm making. I haven't so don't look for them, but for the sake of this post let's pretend I have.. I am happy to announce that my board game is getting closer to the open group testing now. Meaning anyone is welcomed to try it. Still adjusting the prototype and whatnot, or should I say prototype-s, as I am currently trying to make it so that I have many prototypes (two) for testing. And the translated cards need to be tweaked some for, before I can produce another batch of them. But so far so good.

The above picture by the way, is a concept image, not an actual photo, but yeah, it does look like that. And it's awesomely fun to play!

I blog, therefore I am.. bored.

I blog, therefore I am.. bored. Wise words a very wise man once said....

...okay, so I just made it up, but it's better to say something irrelevant than not to say anything at all. Or was it the other way around? On a more positive side note, the preparations for "Konstens natt" are going quite nicely. Today, it's official that I will be dressed as a turn of the century bohemian writer. (imagine Moulin Rouge if that helps) Let's just hope I won't scare the children, or my own child for that matter.

That reminds me, in true blogging about birth and death and all the shit in between, I can proudly say that my son is now 1 years old. Technically he's over a year already as his birthday was a little over a week ago, but that's not going to stop me announcing it to the world. Speaking of him, I have to get going now as he's sleeping right next to me and I don't want to wake him.

Cheers & fuck off...

Creative diarrhea

Yes, it feels like I'm "suffering" from creative diarrhea right now.. I use the word suffering lightly since it's quite difficult to complain... "Oh no, I'm feeling so inspired right now, poor me...". You get the gist.. In other words, no I'm not suffering at all actually.. albeit I'm slightly annoyed at the fact that it's proving to be more difficult to finish a song I've started writing, because new songs keep poppin' up.

I also modified my Ibanez with nylon strings. That was very exciting to try, as the AW is an elecoustic model and isn't designed to maintain the tension of nylon strings, and the bridge was a bit of a bitch to get good, I might have to have a professional take a look at it, so the neck doesn't snap or something when I start playing it more often.

Also, make sure you check out Föregångarna on Konstens natt (6.8.2009) If you happen to be geographically close to Vaasa, Finland that is.. I'm going to be there with my dolls and some other surprises I have stored up on..

EDIT: Here's a link to Föregångarnas actual website as well, maybe that makes a bit more sense than just linking to their location.
