Turns out Miss Rosie Rollanmove wanted to play Monopoly. She’s the worst. Luckily, Gummy Drops, Lord sadButtons, C3PNO, Fun Bob, and Tabatha Deathstare were all up for a game of Eclipse. Hooray! As soon as Aileen gets back from the store we can break out Space Cadets: Dice Duel. I hope she gets those buns.
This week we’re on holiday! Only an hour from home, but the difference between Cork and West Cork (where we’re staying) is a world apart. Down by the coast, on the Wild Atlantic Way (Copyright Irish Tourist Board) we’re by the beach, and beside Clonakilty, a small town packed with great bars, food, and culture.
So far the weather has prevented us from experiencing a lot of this, but obviously we don’t mind falling back on board games. We got up late today, and after breakfast played X-Wing, walked on the beach, and as I type we’re snacking on local cheese and crackers while some dinner roasts in the oven. If I had a pet pig who could fetch my slippers, I would literally be living the dream right now. Still, life is pretty good.
As we are hiding out in the middle of nowhere, I don’t have much to report in the way of news, but before we left, I was concerned to see Seafall Legacy get a very lukewarm review from Shut Up & Sit Down. I didn’t get a chance to see if there were any other reviews, particularly if any matched this sentiment. Anyone played it or seen other reviews? Is it really not the cardboard messiah I have been expecting?
