This weekend I was hoping to get together with my sister Jenny and maybe play Carcassonne or my new chess variant SpaceWarp44. But alas, it was not meant to be. Our schedules this weekend only overlap sufficiently to get together for lunch tomorrow. It will be nice to see her even if we don't get to play a game together and hopefully I will be able to play something tomorrow night with my brother-in-law and his boys.
Unfortunately, this turn of events means we probably won't be able to play SpaceWarp44 prior to the deadline for the chessvariants.com contest. I found playtesting my last variant with her really helped me. Jenny's not a gamer as such and I feel like she can provide a fresh point of view from outside the milieu of the hobby.
