[FTG] Coming soon… 9 Kings seen in Lightbringer by Brent Weeks

Alright, sorry for the preview post. But I mostly just wanted to let everyone know I’m still alive. Beginning of the semester is always a busy time for me at work, and while I’m definitely still reading, I don’t have as much time for writing. I was hoping on having something up for September, and […]

Public Transit

For those of you who know me, you know I take public transit to work every day. Now I recently moved (maybe more on that later) but by moving I’ve changed my daily routine of walking 5 minutes to the train station to experimenting for Public Transit in my new place. For those of you […]


Well I’ll soon be re-employed as a Software Developer and hopefully that means I’ll be able to be more motivated to ASoOJ. Things have been slow around these parts as I looked for a new job, and the Amateur Game Designer had to take a back seat the Professional in me. Gotta put some food […]

Peel Deals

So of late, my family has been having some interesting conversations about food from our youth. One specific food of conversation was called the Peel Deal. Now being the youngest (and a male who generally devoured anything) a lot of the stuff we ate I didn’t know the name of. Unless it was something simple, […]

Brittany Sportscard

So I got a little carried away last time, so here is some more about local card scenes. So the first place I found out about was right near my middle school in Bloomfield, NJ, which I happened to be attending when I started playing Magic. This place was called Brittany Sportscard. (Everyone just called […]

Local Card Scenes Intro

I’ve already posted about my Magic playing days a few times. And this one is more of an in memoriam to my old card-playing days and some of the old hangouts. I occasionally talk to a handful of people that I was playing the game with back in my teenage years, but there are just […]

Groundhog Day

I have a bit of a tradition in attempting to watch Bill Murray’s genius “Groundhog Day” on February 2nd. I don’t know if the film is in my top 10 of films, but I always enjoy it when I watch. I have it on DVD, but didn’t feel like digging through my stuff to find […]

Field of Battle

Writing that last post about Magic reminded me about one of the old forums I used to hang around in my hey-day of playing and collecting the grand-daddy of all CCGs. It had a few different names to it, but most people knew it as the Field of Battle. I wasn’t around from the very […]

Multiplayer Go

So in a few days of high productivity we have the basic multiplayer game working. I still have some tweaking to be done for the most basic, turn-by-turn saving, multiplayer to be fully functional. For example, whether a person is “alive” is not being updated to the server. To prevent a search through all of […]


Well, it appears that I now have some free time on my hands. So I will be doing a few types of networking. The first type of networking is the one for Global Skirmish. I’ve already made a great push on Friday and Saturday and currently have Network Games being created. However, as I finished […]
