Have you ever tried to get a game to the table but it just didn’t work out?
My attempt to get Mage Knight to the table didn’t get too far off the ground. I underestimated the time needed to set up and learn the rules.
I cannot wait to fully play this game, I just need to work my way through the rules. I am sure it is one of those games that once you get playing it is actually quite simple, just need to give it more time to set up and learn the rules.
Still pretty amazed by the standard and quantity of the components and am looking forward to seeing it motion.
Complicated is the creative process. Often trying of patience and intellect. The relationship of impulses, influences, and artistic agenda can be, usually are, intertwined to the point of discombobulation. Sometimes the artist wants all that trouble left behind in the finished work, and sometimes trouble is the finished work. I think that more often than not artists like there to be some evidence of the working process in their finished piece, although often, because artists are vain, that evidence of process suggests confidence and prowess rather than hair pulling and self doubt. Although, often, because artists are cunning, evidence of hair pulling and self doubt will also be seen in the finished work. I used to be in the habit of proclaiming music the ultimate art because it was process and completion at the same time, because it unravels and rolls up as it goes. When I was younger than I am now I had a vague idea that all art was like this, perhaps I had seen too many pictures of Jackson Pollock and Basquiat, but it has not proved to be thus. Not so much in my experience. My great pleasure in decorating ceramics is the immediacy I apply to it. The composition is conceived in relation to the previous line and the shape of the ceramic. It is a moving creative process that demands a degree of shedding of preconceptions, and thus an openness to something new. It is refreshing. At such times, it is a pleasure to be thinking on my feet as I make the design. For me, it comes close to that music I spoke of. And that is good.
I'm probably repeating myself... #plate#tarragonsmith#ceramicplate#slabplate#slabbuilding#pottery#ceramicart#decorativeart#interiordecor#decorativeart#painting#cambridge#cambridgeceramics#tabletop#functionalart#functionalartwork#squareplate
🇩🇪/🇬🇧 "Die Burgen von Burgund: Das Würfelspiel" von Stefan Feld & Christoph Toussaint erschienen beim "Ravensburger Spieleverlag" 🎲
Unsere Roll&Write Sammlung wächst nun auch immer mehr, nachdem uns "Ganz schön clever" so gut gefallen hat 😊
"Die Burgen von Burgund" ist eines meiner absoluten Lieblingsspiele und da war ich gespannt darauf zu sehen, wie sich die Würfelspiel Version davon spielt. Und ich muss leider sagen, dass es mich nicht gepackt hat. Man ist doch sehr eingegrenzt, in dem was man tun kann, da pro Zug nur ein Extra benutzt werden kann. So sind leider keine tollen Combos möglich, wie im Grundspiel 🤔
🇬🇧 "The Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game" by Stefan Feld & Christoph Toussaint published by "Ravensburger Spieleverlag" 🎲
Our Roll&Write collection is now growing after we played the game "Ganz schön clever" which was really fun to play 😊
"The Castles of Burgundy" is one of my all-time favorite games and so I was looking for the dice game version to play it. But I must say that I didn't really like this version of the game because you are very limited in what you can do. You can just use one extra per round, so there is no chance of starting a cool combo like in the base game 🤔
As the first rental company to include California brand @heathceramics in our range (way back in 2011!) we’ve always been inspired by Heath’s upscale yet grounded, and always timeless lines. That’s why we couldn’t be more excited about the brand’s #couperefresh and quite possibly our most favorite and versatile new glaze, Rosemary. We styled these beauties with the help of @megan_gray blooms and paired them with our Verona Chargers in Antique White, Bone Flatware, Bella 24k Gold Rimmed Stemless Glassware and Antique Crystal Salt Cellars — our NEW Rosemary Heath will be available to rent in large quantities late October. #newcollection#cdp3x3 #🍽
