From the island state of Tasmania last week to Phillip Island in Victoria this Sunday. I am away again, but this time I am enjoying a gaming weekend where I can really get my geek on. I and five of my very good friends have rented a house on this popular holiday island for our annual Geek Fest. Four days of Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and the like, without the distractions (and pressures) of real life there to interrupt us. How thankful I am to be able to indulge myself in this way… I expect that once I return to work things might get busy again. 🙂
We’re using the #GF2014 hashtag if you want to follow the action on twitter… but I warn you, we’re all generation Xers so our tweeting skills are somewhat lacking.
As always, these carry on immediately from last week so if you want to see what has come before then just follow this link.

This wasn’t good.
