Secret Hitler

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Took advantage of pool weather this afternoon and then closed out the evening playing a few games.

We started with Werewolf. I don’t remember exactly which version/brand we played. It’s a fairly simple “social deduction game” I’ll never be good at it since it relies on deception, but it’s a hoot anyway.

Next up? Secret Hitler, which has a similar premise but adds complexity. It’s a beautifully designed game, but as Andrew pointed out, they used some typefaces that weren’t proper to the time period. !!!

I preferred the Werewolf gameeven though I could only win by luck.

It’s about the journey!

We lost. 1 – 4.

An approaching storm and a drive thru

Two unrelated photos.

A proper introduction

Laura and Jenn’s family grew by one. And to commemorate the naming of their daughter they brought together family and friends. It was a moving moment for two folks that have hearts so big, it’s a joy to behold.

Old Farts

Eric and his friends make a ride up to Yellow Springs and back every year. They call it the Centennial ride and to commemorate this year he wanted a t-shirt. The big title says Alter Kockers (that’s what they call their team.)

It roughly means “Old Farts” in yiddish.

This photo has so much tension and so little subject matter.

The most significant part of the day was me getting a phone set up on T-Mobile so I could have some connectivity for the upcoming trip. I should’ve taken a photo of that process because it would’ve been a heckuva lot more interesting.

Dinner and drinks in Covington with friends. Everything was splendid save for this flat tire.

I’m technically not working when this photo was taken at 7pm. I was looking back at photos from 10 days prior. Mortified this sole image is what must be posted if I am going to fill in all the days.

Edie is obviously disgusted with me.
