Also what kind of weird Tetris is that where the blocks are not made up of four pieces, and where it looks like the pieces fall horizontally (two empty lines at the bottom) ?!

That's just the attract screen. It's a third of the way through scrolling 'TETRIS' across the screen. It does play a normal game of Tetris.

The infamous Youtube Algorithm recently presented me with a video about board game accessories.

I was quite taken by the idea of using coin capsules to pimp my snacks pieces, so after checking the appropriate BGG list ordered some for the rather brilliant push-your-luck potion game Quacks of Quedlingburg.

Although I probably need to sandpaper the discs to get rid of stray burrs, I'm really impressed with the results. Don't think I'll do this for all my games, but for this particular one it's going to improve the life and add an extra physical element to the experience.

The downside is that they're quite expensive, and for a game like Quacks require loads, so not suitable for all my games but a definite bonus for those that have a special place in my heart.

I also liked the idea of using photo storage boxes for holding smaller games. It saves space and looks great! I'm not too upset about the loss of box art but I think I need to get a label printer to make things that bit neater.

Of course, doing this made me wonder whether I should thin out the collection. Do I really need Fluxx and Doctor Who Fluxx? Do I need both when I've got the just-as-chaotic We didn't playtest this at all?? But that's a question for another day.

Small ziplock bags to put your tokens in also make life much easier in a token heavy game - just put the tokens into their own bag when you pack the game away and you don't have to sort them all when you get it out again.

This off-brand lego set (work in progress).

It’s really well made, and the instructions are clear. The ‘steps’ involved in the instructions are larger than those I’ve seen in most actual Lego sets, but then I’ve only ever seen small sets. The pieces are super high quality, but the bricks are only about half the size of a standard Lego set, so the pieces aren’t compatible, and it’s probably fiddly for some people. They aren’t those tiny ‘micro’ blocks, but somewhere in between. I think it’s going to be lovely when finished. It’s both musical and has mechanical movement.

Yes, I think it might be. This is the exact set:

https://amzn.eu/d/2ENaLyu

It was really fun to build and stands at about 12cm (excluding musical box stand) once built. The sails on the windmill and the waterwheel both turn as it plays the music.

The inside is incredibly detailed. Almost pointlessly as you can’t actually see it, but there is a full bookcase with books on windmills, artwork, a kitchen full of baked goods, a bedroom with a bed, and bedside table with a lamp, etc.

It's a northern superstition, I believe.

I learned about it from this banger:

No shoes on the table, can't open an umbrella indoors, not allowed to arrive and then leave unless you have eaten or drunk something.

My mum had a load of superstitions, including a major thing about crossing on the stairs - as in, NO CROSSING ON THE STAIRS. So much so, that my sister and I found a great game that could effectively paralyse her. If she was going up stairs one of us would quickly race up in front of her, turn round and take a step or two back down - resulting in a stalemate as mum wouldn't carry on going up, because then we'd be crossing on the stairs. Dear mum would then either stand there getting annoyed or would turn around and go back downstairs; both of which felt like hilarious outcomes to us stupid kids.

Not sure if your on iphone or android but iphone health app has a medication reminder where you can set it up to remind you to take it (and confirm) , and will send period reminders until you confirm
