A few more festivals are opening up though :
- The Francofolies
- Just for Laughs
I already went to Fantasia. My goal is attending at least once the other two.
In the meantime, I will pursue my patrolling activities and keep making new friends. I just came home from an evening of board games with Dave and a couple of new friends, a german game called Carcassone :
"Carcassonne die Stadt (Carcassonne: The Town) is a deluxe edition of the Carcassonne-series, that comes in a wooden box with quality components. In this new standalone game, players build up the old town together by placing tiles. While the town area grows, the town walls grow around it, starting from a wooden tower. The wall is comprised of delicately carved wooden parts, that create a beautiful rendition of the medieval town at the end of the game.Next to the slightly modified tile-laying rules, players have the possibility to place their followers as guards on the walls, offering them a wide view of the town. This brings the players extra points. Each player also receives three twisted wooden towers, giving the town walls an added aesthetic effect. (from www.spielbox.de)"
It was a lot of fun, but Dave had a hard time : being color-blind, he has trouble seeing the detail of the game-tiles. it was the first time that I witnessed his color-blindness really affecting an activity. And I've know him for 12 years. Kinda makes you think, doesn't it ? I guess I should be more aware and helpful...
So my resolutions :
- be nicer to boyfriend,
- go to more festivals !
ON ON !
