Table-top Games / Re: Board Game Calendar Weekly Challenges
« Last post by Dragon on November 27, 2020, 10:29:27 »
Sorry about forgetting to post here about the Weekly challenges. Iíll take a moment to catch up here.

Week 43 - Play a game via email.

Week 44 - Play a zombie game.

Week 45 - Play a game on your lunch break.

Week 46 - Play a print-and-play game.

Week 47 - Play a game that was designed over 100 years ago.

Week 48 - Play a game that isnít published in your native language.

Although I did play at least one game most of those weeks, I didnít complete any of the challenges... probably because I wasnít really thinking about them when I had a chance to play something. Also, I have still been playing asynchronous-turn-based games on www.boardgamearena.com, which is kind of like playing via email but a lot less work involved since all the visuals and rules are managed there, like a video game.

For this weekís challenge, maybe I can get my son and wife to play Union Pacific with me. Itís an American railroad themed game, but I believe it was only published in German. (I got an English translation of the rules on a separate piece of paper.)

Blogs / Re: Getting Started with 3d Printing

As a follow up to my previous blog post, which had a lot to do with getting the XYZprinting da Vinci mini W+, I'm happy to say that a firmware update actually helped out quite a bit. No, it didn't mean that I could reset the NFC tags though. Actually, I was able to reset one NFC tag prior to the firmware update and have it working from that point after updating the firmware, but no further attempts to reset the NFC tag were successful. What actually was good though was that the 3d printer would actually recognize the larger spools that I had purchased from XYZprinting. This means that, although I'm still restricted to buying filament from that company, I am able to buy the larger spools, remove the center hub out of the spool and place it on the printer for recognition, and use a separate spool holder (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:761893). Overall, I'm quite happy with the results of doing the firmware update, which I had previously held off from doing because of other comments I had read online.

Additionally, I wanted to mention a video that I watched on YouTube about making copies of objects around us. How to Copy (Almost) Any Object, by Switch & Lever - https://youtu.be/0WTns1ItVss . It has some great tips about using common digital cameras and free software to put together 3d models.

Stone Age

The second set of 3d printable things that I recommend for Stone Age are the these, which I printed before, all white, but added color to the edge of each to match the resources they were intended for:

Just to keep the table organized, this set of bowls turned out nicely.

Stone Age

If you're looking for 3d printable things to enhance your Stone Age boardgame, here are a couple suggestions that I've tried myself. First, my most recent addition to my game collection:

Stone Throne by DanielRobert

I've been looking for a nice alternative for the cardboard chieftain, which constantly falls apart. Printed using "silver" filament, this turned out like a great replacement.

I did watch the A-Team movie, a few years ago. Looking back at it now, especially as a big fan of the A-Team TV show, I remember it seeming to lack the entertainment value that I would have hoped for. But really, the van was the biggest disappointment to me. They totally destroyed the A-Team van at the beginning of the movie and just moved on. That van was a major bit of the character of the original show to me. It would be like having a Knight Rider movie without K.I.T.T...

As a note for myself and other web designers, I was looking for an icon finder online and it took a while to find it because it wasn't the name that I remembered. Instead of https://www.iconfinder.com/ try https://glyphsearch.com/

Glyph Search has options for searching multiple libraries, including Font Awesome and Glyphicons, with a quick copy function.
