Goodbye 2018

Time doesn’t so much fly as it absolutely goes by in a supersonic rush. Where did the last year go to? Well, it’s gone now.

Here’s hoping 2019 is a year of health and happiness, peace and prosperity.

Respect – Jordanian Style

Click the image to go to the Times of Israel story.

The Jordanian narrative is typical of many states in the Middle East. Jordan’s economy is a joke. Civil liberties are a joke. Health standards are a joke. The country is a basket case. So, do they focus their energies and attention on improvement? Initiatives for betterment? Campaigns for freedom? Oh no. Instead, their number one focus seems to be to blame the Jews.

Jordan continues to ensure its people will be served lives of poverty, oppression, and bigotry instead of progress, peace, and hope.

Normandy: The Beginning of the End

This has been on the table for the last wee while. It’s the latest in the War Storm Series (my review of an earlier version is here) and this is a good improvement. In a nutshell, the rules are better, though there are still gaps. And the proofreading and translation is not perfect. But, it’s a highly playable system, easily tweaked, and delivers a lot of gaming goodness. The components are gorgeous. Highly recommended.
