Dice master

Sunday 29th July 2018, 7.35pm (day 2,530)

Joe, D&D, 29/7/18

On the wettest day for months, and trapped in the house, Joe initiates his parents into bizarre Dice Man-style games of chance, in which the family fortune teeters on the edge of a d20. The wine is Clare’s.

Mario Bros. (and mushroom)

Saturday 2nd April 2016, 11.25am (day 1,682)

Mario brothers, 2/4/16

Why? Because reasons, as Joe would say. And this was definitely his kind of event.

Reliving it

Friday 30th December 2015, 2.35pm (day 1,588)

Playing Galaxian, 30/12/15

We could mock this guy for reliving the glories of his youth, but seeing as just after this I punched the air and shouted ‘Yes! High Score!’ after beating all-comers at Asteroids, I have no leg to stand on. Pictured at the National Media Museum, Bradford, this afternoon’s entertainment.

Joe blows stuff up

Monday 21st December 2015, noon (day 1,579)

Joe in his room, 21/12/15

Joe has two weeks off school. I think it’s fair enough that he can spend the first weekday of this break lying around on his bed doing what it says on the door. One and a half more days of work for me and then I will gladly join in.

Board games festival

Saturday 29th August 2015, 4.55pm (day 1,465)

Meepfest, 29/8/15

Anyone who has documented every day of their lives online for more than four years cannot but be at least part-geek, so things like festivals of board games appeal to me, and I wasn’t even the member of the family who initiated this trip to “MeepFest” in Leeds today. (No, it wasn’t Joe either.) Great setting, a church in Leeds now converted to an arts centre. Good fun gaming, too.
