Nerds, let's get it together - Lords of Waterdeep Inevitable Betrayal Promo Card | comments

So there's this game, Lords of Waterdeep. Good game. And in this game, there's a common deck of cards that you use to affect your opponents. There was recently an auction for a promo card that cost this much
So here someone's paying $33.36 for an single card that will go into a deck of 60ish other cards and in barely have any effect. And this isn't a buy-it-now listing: this is an actual auction and someone bid that amount. $33.36, by the way, is more than the game itself costs. But because this one card is so hard to get, people will pay crazy amounts to get it/ --------
Also, the game has a really cool box. It's really well designed. But it's not this cool.
Also, why are you chopping down trees while you open up games. -------- Previous post on a similar topic: Dixit Promo, Arkham Horror Expansion

Pulitzer Prize Winning Photos of an Iraq War Vet with PTSD Monday, April 16, 2012 | comments

cut slit wrists scars powerful PTSD award winning stitches Iraq war effects photojournalism amazing heartbreaking

That's just one photo. See the rest. Amazing photojournalism

Caption to the photo above
"Scott Ostrom said many times he should have died overseas, and during a fight with his girlfriend, she agreed. 'I just grabbed a pair of scissors tried jabbing them into my neck, but they were closed,' Scott said. 'So I grabbed a nice kitchen knife and cut my wrists.' He said he believes every combat vet struggling with PTSD has a contingency plan. 'Every one of us has a suicide plan. We all know how to kill, and we all have a plan to kill ourselves.'"

Picture of Scott now and condensed slideshow here

Kid builds his own arcade out of cardboard and goes behind each game to hand out tickets Tuesday, April 10, 2012 | comments

I'm just going to share this before I see this on every single other site I follow. See Caine's Arcade for yourself here:

http://feeds.boingboing.net/~r/boingboing/iBag/~3/98FS4Y74_Nw/9-year-olds-diy-cardboard-ar.html

Here's a quote:
"One day, by chance, I walked into Smart Parts Auto looking for a used door handle for my ’96 Corolla. What I found was an elaborate handmade cardboard arcade manned by a young boy who asked if I would like to play. I asked Caine how it worked and he told me that for $1 I could get two turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass with 500 turns. I got the Fun Pass."
