Nyctophobia Game

For my vision-impaired friends and gamer geeks, I want to share the game Nyctophobia.  This is a tabletop horror game about a monster in the woods.  One person plays the monster, who can see the board.  The other people play the fleeing victims, blindfolded, so they can navigate the board only by touch.  My suspicion is that any sighted people playing against blind people will get creamed, but touch-dominant people should also have a strong advantage.  While the theme of the game isn't really my style, I love the idea of tactile games, and this sounds like a great addition to anyone's collection of tactile games.

Computer Update

My old computer has been repaired and reinstalled.  \o/  I'm waiting on some file transfers now.  Progress! 

EDIT 4/2/21 -- After a bobble with the email, which is fixed, the computer seems to be working well.  :D


Today is clear and cool.

I fed the birds.  They've been very active today.  I've seen sparrows, doves, house finches, a pair of cardinals, a grackle, a Bewick's wren, and a squirrel.  A vulture flew overhead.  The crows were harassing the owl again, and managed to chase it out over the field.  I doubt that will last, but it's fun to watch them.

I dug some weeds under the lilac bush.
