Your favourite things of 2017

Blake TBlake T Registered User regular
Hey guys, it's the end of the year, and we've spent a year participating in rampant consumerism and we've all bought, made, or have been given a variety of stuff over the year, so what are your favourite things that you have acquired this year.

This might be my favourite boardgame period. The only criticism on it is that it is only for four people and so I do not get to play it very much as we usually end up with a minimum of 5 people. It is a game where you constantly are coming up with the perfect plan, only to have it ruined by cards that your can't draw or by the actions of everyone else on the board, but that is OK, and I love, that a completely valid tactic is to take no action.

Die

I picked up two sets of semiprecious die, I have an opalite set and a Jasper and they are expensive

Iphone X

Yeah it's expensive, but I don't really care, I had an iPhone 6, about about 9 months ago, it just stopped fucking working and so I used a 5S, so for me it's fast as heck, it's screen goes forever and it's photos look great.

Lego Milenium falcon

Vivienne and I got this as a combined Christmas and anniversary present.

There are seven and a half thousand pieces, the box weighs like 16 kilograms, the instruction book weighs a kilo by itself. I have no idea when will actually finish it. It just goes on forever. It is ridiculous and amazing.


Dog

I got a dog last week, he is excellent and getting pats, sleeping and being an all round doofus. I love him and he has made a great fur baby.

    I'm thankful that I met again, fell in love with, and married a girl I had a crush on in high school. And she spent Christmas with my family yesterday and everyone finally got to meet her and everyone was able to get along.

    I really like my Samsung Note 8. It's the first brand new phone I've ever allowed myself to purchase and it's really cool.

    I bought a Pixel 2 a couple weeks ago and I love this phone so much. I used to think I didn't care about smartphone cameras but the one on the Pixel 2 is so good it changed my whole perspective.

    I got a Switch for my birthday and I use it almost as much as my phone. It's such a nice little piece of hardware and the neon joycons hit me right in the inner child.

    Up until this morning I would have included my Ryzen 3 1200 on the list. It's a lot of performance for ~$100 and it's super fun tinkering around with the overclocking settings. But, my PC is acting up and if it ends up being the 1200 I'll be really disappointed.

    Not so much acquired but what I've let go of: I quit smoking after 17+ years.

    No vaping, no patches, no gum: No nicotine. New Years Eve is actually a month without smoking for me.

    What a world this is.

    So, there's this really awesome game called Rakuen. If any of you have played To The Moon, it's sort of in that genre of game. It came out this year and I've been hyping it up to everyone I can find! I've also sent out as many copies as I could afford to as many people as possible. It's just got such a great vibe to it. It also has a pretty great soundtrack. And it has, in my opinion, the best mom in video games. Essentially, the crux of the game is you're a sick kid in a hospital and you wander around helping people and engage in some escapism via storytelling to go to a fantasy world. It's pretty great.

    I quit with a friend of mine and without her, I would've broken so many times over.

    The first 5 days were the worst and now it's just getting over the habit.

    Die is singular. Dice is plural. you bought sets of dice.
