Oak Alley Plantation!


This is the Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana. We visited it last year on our way back from New Orleans.

It was gorgeous to see, but one of the first times I’ve ever visited a historical site and saw slave quarters. What was interesting though is that a slave who lived their in the mid 1860’s was big into plant grafting and breeding. He invented a type of pecan tree called a “papershell.”

The crazy thing is that we have a papershell tree in our back yard at our house in Texas! So our tree in some shape or form can trace it’s origin back to the plantation. Very wierd.

Boardgame Survey!


This year I’m trying to keep in touch with my Kickstarter Calendar Backers via an email list. So last month I asked them to vote and suggest games that I should photograph for the 2018 Gaming Calendar. The photo above shows the results of the survey!

Voters got 12 votes (cause there are 12 games in a calendar) so that’s why the percents seem so wonky. It was really cool to see how things broke down and how both Scythe and Terraforming Mars were clearly the hottest games.

In “The Other” category, games got maybe one or two votes at most with the only standouts being  Trickerion and Food Chain Magnate.
