Yeah, I got nothing. I want to give you guys some humor and distraction, but I don’t think I can. I am so sad and angry at the same time right now. It swings from one to the other. Everyone at work is in the same boat for the most part. We’re all anxious and… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #666 – Oh, how charmingly apropo…
Dad’s about halfway through his radiation treatments, which means that he and my mom drive into downtown Seattle every weekday and go to a hospital, which is a risk, but it’s that or the potential return of his brain tumor, soooo… They’re being super careful at the hospital. Ok, so I am more likely to… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #654 – Updates and Socializing in a Time of Social-Distancing
I kind of forgot it was Easter. See, for decades of my life, Easter happened when we were at Norwescon. So, yeah, it kind of completely slipped my mind, with Norwescon being canceled. Anyway, for “Bunny Day” in ACNH, there’s Zipper the Bunny. He is obviously another animal in a Bunny suit, who hates his… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #652 – Happy Easter, Solstice, Zombie God day!
OrcaCon was awesome! Thank you, whoever paid for my membership. If I owe you something, please remind me, because if I agreed to do a thing during a migraine, I have zero memory of it. OrcaCon is brilliant and important because it is a space where non-cis, non-white, non-dude, non-heterosexual gamers are explicitly welcome. Donna… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #630 – OrcaCon 2020
I don’t actually talk about game design here a lot, because even though I’ve done it/am doing it, I still suffer from a fairly large case of imposter syndrome. And… most of my game design ambitions revolve more around skinning things I already love like pbta (powered by the apocalypse) games, because I am far… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #629 – Game Design and Truth in Advertising
Hey, on a slightly unrelated note, I will be at OrcaCon, but I’m not sure who covered my membership. Green Ronin said they hadn’t. I’m still trying to figure it out. So, I don’t think I’m running demos this weekend, but I will likely run one or two pick up games. Maybe some Guns and… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #628 – Running Demos of Games
So, the Geek Husband What Rules published one of his games over on itch.io. Rock ‘n’ Roll Confidential. So, yes, disclaimers, I’m married to this guy, so I’m biased. Rock ‘n’ Roll Confidential is essentially VH-1 Behind the Music the role-playing game. A bunch of people, and we have had some really big games, get… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #623 – Bragging on my Boy and Promoting Him
So, first off, JR Honeycutt who is a board game designer has been outed as an abuser/predator. Next is Andrew Medeiros, co-author of the Watch with Anna Kreider, has been accused of emotional abuse. Actually both of these cases involve emotional abuse, one almost solely, and the other as part and parcel of the physical… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #617 – More Gaming #MeToo’s
Argh! I wrote this out, and then it got eaten! Grrrrr. Anyway, I spent the last two days at Geek Girl Con, and ran a couple sessions of Blue Rose for Green Ronin Publishing. First, though, Friday we went to the first punk show we’ve been to in two years. Our friends Ol’ Doris recorded… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #613 – Geek Girl Con!
As always AmberconNW was awesome!!!!!!!! Got to see a whole lot of people I only see once a year! Played some awesome games!

This is an ongoing game where several of us play children of Amber elders who have been retrieved… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #610 – ACNW 2019
