Signed up for the beta program to try out the "Limepod" aka Fiat 500, which have been showing up around Seattle. The current onboarding experience was a bit wonky, they don't let you do the driver check ahead of time so you have to scan your license while standing around on the sidewalk, not ideal when it is dark and windy.

Third time out with *Cataclysm* ... first time to finish a game properly, and first time I felt like I was grasping the the concepts and playing intentionally. Squeaked out a victory with the Fascists in the "Days of Decision" 2-player introductory scenario, and here's the wild part: _without starting a war_ …
A chess club gathered each day in December in the main hall of a local hotel to have loud discussions about their latest wins, each win more extravagant than the last. One of the employees asked them to stop, but they insisted on speaking to the manager - and the manager refused. "It's just something about the season. I love hearing Show more
chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."
@Judd enjoying Dreaming about Dragons so far. I like the "bite-sized" nature of it. It's like a good blog post in audio format.
