So I have to be honest. The weekly blog post for this week is a lie. Come on, don’t give me that look. You knew this would happen at some point. Simply the fact my name is “Corrupt Overlord” meant this is almost certainly bound to take place. Going digital has had it’s share of challenges and all in all I think we’ve done a good job.
We’ve made the most of it, and the heavy interaction and solid feedback means we’re doing something right. However, you just can’t replace some of the experiences that come from face to face board game nights. Sometimes you need a situation where you can just expect to trash talk each other and no one knows what the chances of winning are.
So introducing an old classic: a game I loved and last played in 2003. Bringing a question to all of you:
Do you have Worms?
So we’re going to play this:
Or maybe it’s this one:
Not sure which one at this point.
Honestly, communication has not been a strong point this week. We blame Phil for refusing to get a gaming laptop and staying with an Apple. No, literally, that’s where ALL the “that doesn’t work with my computer” issues are coming from.
Point being, with Patrons and friends we are going to be playing Worms against one another as they swear, yell, attack, and we work to murder the crap out of each other. It should be a jolly good time.
These games are endlessly entertaining, and we’re looking forward to taking our teams of sociopathic homicidal worms and doing some damage.
Hope you join us tonight!
If you have any other ideas of things you’d like to see while we’re on social distancing and digital lockdown then please let us know!

You can find his other work in publications like Level Skip or Hobby Lark.
