    Are socks the new Shaq Fu?

    Socks are actually a Christmas tradition when we all get together in my family. Way back when, we'd all get an entire pack of white socks. Dudes got white athletic socks, ladies got white ankle socks. Now that the family has expanded tremendously, we get a pair of socks. Generally keeping with the white athletic/ankle socks, but last year we all got a pair of really fuzzy, colorful socks.
    Tradition also states that whoever is Santa and is handing out the gifts has to try to catch the sock receiver unawares when throwing it at them, hopefully hitting them in the head.

    Slightly related: I have a tattoo that says "socks." Yes, with a period.

    I rarely wear socks. I do at the gym.

    This entire post is a delight.

    I like to go away for a while then come back and overshare. What are your hobbies?

    Wearing socks, co-opting traditions, and interacting with friends on a far too sporadic basis after they come out of their yearly hibernation.

    "zip, i dunno what it is about you, but there's something very cat-like about your face. i can't really place it. you'd make a good mountain lion." Hail, Satan!

    I live in the frozen tundra of Minnesota and have all hard wood throughout.

    I still never wear socks at home. I wear socks only when I have to and wearing fun, goofy socks is my way of rebelling against the idea of socks.

    So yesterday a package arrived! It had gifts from Satan!
    JxXXUs3.jpg

    I was busy last night so I didn’t have time to properly gush about them, or look much deeper than what’s pictured here. Now that I’ve had time I can see there were a few more notes tucked away inside, detailing why these games were chosen and hinting that they are somebody I have given to in the past.

    Bananagrams is something I have been adjacent to in the past but don’t remember playing, so that seems neat. The Skulls game being a bluffing game should go over well with my friends, as we’ve liked stuff like Avalon or Secret Hitler. And saying a game is like 7 Wonders is an easy in to my own heart, so that should put Sushi Party right up there.

    I had set the box aside, and today while I was at work I got this text from my wife
    8gsjyjxxk2lb.jpeg
    Turns out she found the box and independently got excited to play one of the games! Not having to give her a sales pitch on why it’s gonna be fun is the greatest gift of all. :)

    I will take more pictures when I can dig in and properly explore these games. :D

    OTHER SOCKS!

    rbg5pz8rqphu.jpg

    Now this is curious.

    Two pairs of The Scream socks.

    Is this a message from Satan?

    A warning... Am I in danger?

    Did two different people send me gifts? Is there more than one Satan afoot?

    Does Satan think i am a huge fan of VAN GOFF?

    The mystery is aFOOT!

    Oho, I just received a package that brings some matters into clarity that were unclear prior.

    Last week, a package came, but the contents and tenor of the note suggested that they were from Critical Failures, not Satan! Here is that post in its entirety:
    Nullzone wrote: »
    Hark! A bludgeoning device!
    IMG_20181128_223332.jpg?width=473&height=630

    And a note?
    IMG_20181128_223347.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Why yes, I DO enjoy complex eurogames! Scythe, Ora et Labora, Low Lands, and Terra Mystica/Gaia Project are among some of my favorite games ever. But this is far too small to be something like that...what could be inside?
    IMG_20181129_131005.jpg?width=473&height=630
    IMG_20181129_131013.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Fascinating! It strikes me as something between Low Lands and Deep Sea Adventure. Keen to try it out! Thanks mystery Santa!

    (I have my suspicion as to who this is, but generally have a policy of not airing that knowledge, so as to respect the gifter's privacy)

    (I'm also not 100% certain this is CF santa as I'm also signed up for Secret Satans, but the inquiry about complex eurogames and lack of Satan driven thematics suggests this to be more likely)

    Then, a few days ago, I receive this.
    IMG_20181204_114012.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Most excellent socks - while this may not have been the intent, I play a Warrior in FFXIV, which is typically represented symbolically by crossed axes, so this was more ideal than you might think!

    Today, I received another package - which first required testing by the local authority.
    IMG_20181204_111451.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Once cleared, there was another note!
    IMG_20181204_111550.jpg?width=473&height=630

    But nobody named Old Scratch is in the CF exchange. Puzzlingly, nobody here is either.

    And that's when I learned (with some judicious help from Google) that Old Scratch is another name for Satan.

    A thousand apologies if you thought I was ignoring your missives, Satan - I'm just a dense goose, is all. The goods, though, are excellent:
    IMG_20181204_111540.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Tonight is board game night and I think I have some homework to do!

    My thanks to Satan for this bountiful crop!

    I'm claiming this now, because my last gift won't let me put a note anyway.

    You weren't dense, i just forgot to put a "from:" in my first note. It's all good, I had even seen your post in CF, because I was stalking for Satans.

    I bought Hellapagos for myself after seeing this video, where the PA crew plays it and Tube features prominently. If you haven't played it yet, then definitely watch it.


    Caylus I got as a gift myself years ago and I really liked it. Sadly it's hard to find people who are that into complex games, so it's rarely played in our household. The first session can be confusing, but it gets better and it really is quite deep with multiple avenues to a win.

    Funny that I got lucky with the socks, I chose them just because I thought they looked cool (and socks are this year's thing)


    There is one last gift coming, but it might take a while.
