After being stuck on the couch most of the day yesterday I felt I just HAD to do something today! So with a lot of time and even MORE breaks in between I started construction on a game called Spyzinger by friend and fellow game dev Lucas Gerlach.
He graciously gave me the plans to make my own copy so I could test it out as well as review it when the time comes. I have to admit, I can NOT wait! As I've been on a dexterity game kick lately this is something that is just fun and exciting to me knowing I can use my limited skills and MAKE a copy of this game. :)
Other than that, I've had the pain most of the day like I mentioned. It's a very inconvenient type of pain. It's in my neck/shoulder and in my back. It requires me to take MANY more breaks than I am willing to admit which in turn slows down otherwise quick progress to a snails pace.
During one of my breaks I had just happen to check my email this afternoon since I'm always contacting various people and companies about possible reviews in the future. To my surprise I was actually sent an email from Origins Game Fair which stated that my reservation for a press pass had been accepted!
Now, to me this is BIG news! For one, I'm finally being recognized as a "somebody" in the review scene which is a nice feeling in and of itself. Secondly, it means that there is more now than ever before a chance for me to make it to this board gaming convention for the first time ever and even being able to represent myself and The Kentucky Bored Gamer!
So, this is a HUGE thing for me obviously and it's not a cheap thing to pull off either as some of you may know. Because of this I have a gofundme page started up which is accepting donations for the trip to the event. I need all the help I can get in this so please check it out and feel free to share it, tweet it, read it and donate if possible. If not possible, I completely understand!

So onto the "Game a Day" challenge! Tonight my lovely wife and I played some Into the Black which is a game coming to kickstarter this week! We only have the early prototype versions so we can't exactly play the game as it is now but I will say that I've read over the revised rules and can NOT wait to see this one succeed!
After successfully completing our objectives in the game we cleaned the game up and my lovely wife went to bed for the night.
My beautiful daughter and I played another game however! We decided to try out Gravity Maze which is one of two game I've recently gotten for review. It's a pretty challenging solo player game but also very fun so be sure to keep an eye out for that review as well!
So all in all today was a great day by many other standards and I'm glad to end it on a happy note.
As always, thank you for reading and take care! :)
