Card games

So all geeks love games...

So a few years back when I was unemployed I came up with the idea of a card game where the players would have to build "spells" out of component cards.
I had even got to the point of creating the cars in "pages" and printing them out. We had a good friend of ours who owns a game company give some amazing feedback on the game. Well I got a job,, moved continents and two computers later I assumed that those files were lost forever! This last weekend I upgraded my computer with the latest version of OsX .. One of the features uncovered all of the working files for the card game!!

So here is what I am going to do! Anyone who would like I play test this game here .. 

You will need to have access to a printer so you can print out the cards. Any and all feedback for the game will be appreciated. Send feedback to

New sword

Those who know me know that I tend to dabble in the martial arts. This basically means that I take a few classes but I'm really not all that dangerous. The extent of my martial arts skills are to scare the shit out of a mugger who has never taken a lesson in his life. (But really do you need much more?) 

So wanting to be in better shape I ordered a bokken (Wooden practice sword ) from eBay. It arrived today.. I took it out and started to practice. The neighbors are now convinced my last name is Adams. 

1 week later 
So part of my personal training is to do sword cuts. This sounds easy at first. You hold the sword over your head. Draw all the way back then come down hard till the blade is just about eye level while keeping control repete till your arms and shoulders hurt. So far I can go 130 rounds .
