Welcome to JohnHQLD.com! Thank you so much for checking it out. I’m John, and this is my site. Mainly I will be talking about things that catch my interest, primarily in gaming but sometimes in other fields as well. If there is anything you would like to discuss or would like my thoughts on, leave me a note on the Facebook page or register here to add comments!
Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy the site.
A great warning from a great movie: “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” In The Grid: AI Awakens, you play as scientists that already have, but still try to turn the situation to their own advantage.
Trick Taking games. When people hear of these games, they think of Hearts, Spades, Bridge and Euchre. Gorus Maximus shares the roots of these games but is definitely not any of them.
There are games that I really enjoy that stop players from communicating with each other. On one hand, I enjoy the challenge of these games. On the other, I love watching players trying to find as many cheats as possible. The Mind looks like another game where I will see creative communication come to the fore.
In honour of the ‘Hiest’ Blatherings last week, news on a new Kickstarter that looks great. While Android: Netrunner is coming to a close, the daunting task of teaching new players is real and one of the reasons I stopped playing. One Last Job looks to capture a lot of the ‘sweatiness’ I love about Android: Netrunner, but contained in one single deck. This could be a ‘light’ replacement for a loved game!
