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 on the table?

I have been working on some side projects, just ones that were more focused on programming. I figured that would be a good way to keep my skills as sharp as possible, and give me something to talk about on interviews.

So Thursday is going to be a Homebrew day where the plan is to brew a pretty classic Irish Red. I’m hoping it comes out as delicious as the Pumpkin beer that we brewed in October.

I’m going to bust out the plans for Greenland so I can brainstorm up some ideas. I’m pretty happy with the Greenland side of things, of course, playtesting should help even any of that out. I have some interesting ideas for how the Denmark side should play, but need to get it fleshed out, and working with the economy structure. I do want to try to balance my projects more carefully than previously, and it would be fun to be able to get others to playtest my own board game. But I have to take it one step at a time.

Soon I will be out of the tunnel, and focusing my energy on work-life-play might be trickier than it was previously.

We’ll see how it goes.
