Happy Pig and Books

My owner's OtherHalf was playing Borderlands 2 yesterday and look what I spotted in the game!

Today there was mail for Voodoo Bride.
I won these books for her at Preternatura.

Thanks Suzanne!

Sinterklaas Brought More Presents

This Saturday Sinterklaas brought a big bag full of presents for us and some of our friends. Me and my owner got some really cool gifts.

We got two books!
The Reapers Are The Angels is a post-apocalyptic story with zombies. The House of Velvet and Glass is about a woman who visits mediums to try to contact her mother and sister who died in the sinking of the Titanic. Both books sound really intriguing and I can't wait to read them.

We also got a great game called Dixit.
We already tried it out. It's really fun and I love the artwork.

There was also the traditional and very yummy chocolate letter and a cool woolly hat

And a bag of bones!
The skull has red glowing eyes. Isn't that cool?!

All in all we had a great evening and I'm very happy with our presents.

Thanks Sinterklaas!

Sinterklaas also left a gift for Jeffe at our house, we'll have to find the time to send it to her soon.

Mud Pigs

Yes, I've been quiet for a while.
The above game is to blame as usual ;-)

I did get to play a fun card game as well this week.
Moddervarkens (Mud Pigs)

It's a game about pigs who want to get all muddy, but rain and evil farmers are making them clean again.

I managed to get all my pigs muddy and won the game!

It was really fun!

A Trip To Germany

This weekend we finally went on the mysterious trip my owner mentioned. She had arranged a car and we went to Germany. I brought my passport (which Beanie made for me) along.

I saw a Viking sandbox.

And I got to eat baked potatoes.

We traveled all the way to Essen.
I wonder what we're going to do here.

I know what that means: It's the German word for game.
It turned out we were going to a big games convention.

We bought tickets and then we were off to look at all kinds of cool games.


There were lots of cool zombie games.

Zombie dice.
What a cool convention!

I also spotted this really cool logo.

And a scary fish.

And guess what my owner's OtherHalf bought for me...

A zombie game!

We also bought this game.
It's from the same company that also made Cockroach Poker, one of my favorite card games. I'm looking forward to playing this game, it says on the box that you are allowed to cheat when playing it.

I had a really cool time at the convention and I hope we will go there again some time.

A Visit from Witje and Zombies

Yesterday Witje came to Groningen for a visit.
He brought along his student, who's still learning how to be a sheep, and he also brought his stuffed animal.

They also brought a boardgame called 'Last Night on Earth'.

It's a game with zombies!
Some of the players play heroes who have to escape the zombies, while other players can command the zombies who try to eat the heroes of course. I got to command the zombies!

Here the zombies are closing in on the heroes.
(the heroes are the grey miniatures.)
It was an overwhelming victory for the zombies!

In the evening Witje had to leave again and he took the zombie game with him. It was a fun day and I wouldn't mind playing that game more often I'll confess.

Getting Ready For Mass Effect 3

Yes, I've been awfully quiet these last few days, but my owner wasn't doing anything interesting so I've been playing Mass Effect 2 so I'm all ready to play Mass Effect 3 when it releases over here in a couple of days.

A Magic Tournament

Yesterday we finally went to do something fun.
We went to the station and took a bus to Assen to take part in a Magic: The Gathering Tournament.

I only play this game once a year and am always surprised by how much new rules and cards there are each year.

Of the four games I played I won only one game, so I didn't get to take home the trophy. I can dream though and hope I will win it one day.

Games and Pigs

Yesterday evening we went to a birthday party and we played a lot of card games. I really liked this one: Monopoly Deal. I won the game three times!

Today I'm taking it easy and I'm reading comics. This one has pigs in it.

Still Around

Today was the last day of my vacation.
It's been raining these last couple of days, but I've been making the most out of them by reading and playing games.

Convention Time

Today I helped out promoting and selling games at a Multi Media convention. (I know board and card games aren't very Multi Media, but we were trying to show people that those games are just as fun as computer games.)

I got to try this weird electronic Rubik's cube thing.

I also played a game where you have to operate on a patient.
It was a fun game.


There was a train riding around the convention!
I really wanted to ride on the train, but we were to busy working to find time to catch the train.

All in all I had a fun day.

An Early Sinterklaas Present

Sinterklaas brought me an early present yesterday!

It was a card game for two players.
Each player has to try to create a gang and the player who recruits the most gangsters wins the game.

Again I will say the tradional thanks to Sinterklaas:
Dank u Sinterklaasje!

Pyramids and Dragons

Yesterday evening we tried out some new games.
First a game where you had to stack pyramid thingies on top of each other. It wasn't very challenging in my opinion, so I won't be playing it again.

Next we played Dragon's Gold.
In this game you have to fight dragons and haggle over the dividing of the dragon's treasure once the dragon is defeated. It was a fun game and I managed to get the most treasure!

Another Halloween Party

Today we went on a trip.
My owner told me to wear my mummy costume.
On the trainride I got coffee and a pastry thingie with cherry-filling. Yum!

I know this tower!
This is the St. Nicholas Church in Kampen!

It turned out we were going to visit my good friend Witje. He was celebrating Halloween as well. And look what a cool mask he had!

There were lots of other animals at the party as well.

And special Halloweenish chocolate!

And I got to play a fun game!
This is the character I played in the game: an elvish wizard who could cast fireballs and such.

The characters had to find treasure and fight monsters in a creepy dungeon. My elf got to fight giant spiders and ghouls. It was lots of fun.

In the evening we had to go home again.
It was a really great day!
