  1. Guys, Mylo's back. Mylo's back! Mylo's back!!!
  2. League code is 03072548 Hurry, only got until tomorrow 1300 BST to enter!
  3. Does anyone play Velogames? If so I'll make a RLLMUK league! Fantasy grand tours, it's good silly fun. http://www.velogames.com/
  4. ^^ That's why I said it wasn't important, none of the Sansa/Ramsey stuff is likely to be key to the wider plot given that it develops completely differently in the books.
  5. That last scene rubbed me up the wrong way. Given that we know none of the details of what happens this season in Winterfell are important, did we really need a hyper-dramatic rape scene in there to inspire some outrage? It's not a key plot point, it doesn't develop any of the characters, so it's just a big Fuck You of exploiting Sansa and making some good TV out of sexual assault.
  6. Christ, was the last scene really necessary? I'm no wuss but it felt rather exploitative to me.
  7. What have I got to lose, here's my first contribution. I've just started messing around with Garage Band so it sounds predictably like it came off of a Super Nintendo, but I had great fun making it so whatevs. Also I thought the title was "Sunlight", minor difference.
  8. Me and my brother made a homemade copy of One Night Ultimate Werewolf yesterday out of old MTG cards. Can't wait to try it out!
  9. Pandanet seems to be a decent free client on IOS and Android. It connects via the IGS server (online site) so I guess you have to have an account there to make it work. I haven't set it up yet but would do if anyone wanted to play!
  10. Yay Go! OGS is the Online Go Server - one of the online sites which people play on. It's the only one my workplace hasn't blocked so it's the one I play on! https://online-go.com The way I learned was to read one of the many tutorials online, for example the below site, and then I downloaded an app called "Go Free". The AI is scalable and playing on a 9x9 board can take under five minutes, making it great for trying things out and learning to fight. After a few days I moved up to a 13x13 board and then went online. https://gogameguru.com/learn-go-easy-way-go-game-1/
  11. I've started playing a lot of Go recently. For those who don't know, it's that Japanese/Chinese/Korean game where two players make weird patterns on a grid out of stones. I really like it. I think that's because it's a strategy game in its absolute purest form - there's basically only three rules and all of the other incredible depth and complexity comes from emergent properties. I think it compares favourably to Chess. The rules are simpler; it takes place on a grander scale (someone wise said 'Chess simulates a battle, Go simulates a war'); you can make up for blunders in one area elsewhere more easily than in chess; and the excellent handicap system means that a strong player and a much weaker player can have a good game. Does anyone play, or have any interest in playing? I'm rank 18 Kyu on OGS server. Maybe there's no interest but if anyone here wanted to play or wanted to learn it'd be fantastic.

  13. I gotta hand it to Kwiatowski, that was an amazingly well timed attack. I was glad to see him hold on to the finish, it must take real balls with the chasers SO close behind you for so long.
  14. I'm genuinely surprised nobody has mentioned Twilight Struggle. It's a Cold War themed 2 player game that's incredibly deep, incredibly subtle and incredibly good. I really enjoyed playing it with the same person over a period (my brother, in this case) because you really get inside each other's heads and learn how the other player thinks. So yes, it can be pretty heavy, in the "oh god all my choices are shit what do I do" sort of way, but it's unparalleled in two player games for strategy and involvement. It's been the top rated game on Boardgamegeek pretty much since it came out in 2005.
  15. What a gripping stage today. Glad that Quintana (and Pozzovivo) made up a few seconds but will it be enough? I can see Uran shattering over the next few days, he wasn't looking particularly strong this afternoon.
