LPO Day 5: Coming home… :-(

Friday felt like the shortest day I'd had in a long time... We were up relatively early, and after spending an hour or so chatting over breakfast, it was time to get all my stuff sorted ready for the trip home... The check-in and security process at Nantes Airport was super smooth - why do … Continue reading LPO Day 5: Coming home… 😦

LPO Day 4: Well, actually…

Anyone following this series might be surprised to hear that Paul and I both woke before 8.30am on Thursday... he was already in the garden enjoying the morning birdsong before I got downstairs, but there'll be no prizes for guessing what we played... I don't think I'd laughed so much in such a short period … Continue reading LPO Day 4: Well, actually…

LPO Day 3: Carry on, carry on…

Wednesday proved not dissimilar to Tues, although it started off with a short roadtrip to McDonalds to see if their breakfast menu was anything like the UK one - it isn't... and you lot at the back commenting on my food choices can shush your noise!

I started the day with a couple of games of FlickFleet from Eurydice Games, a rather fun dexterity shoot 'em up that's due on Kickstarter soon-ish... This was swiftly followed by a playtest of Tsuxnet Strikes Back (an Agents in Time 'sequel') which … Continue reading LPO Day 2: At last, some gaming…

LPO Day 1: A rocky start…

Well, after failing at Leaving Earth this morning (see Leaving Earth from an Airport...), I did at least manage to land safely in Nantes, France, Earth -- and given it was a cheap flight, I do believe there were only four bags on the plane, three of which belonged to us and were full of … Continue reading LPO Day 1: A rocky start…

Leaving Earth from an Airport…

Yup, you guessed it... I went for a solo game of Leaving Earth, albeit with a reduced set of Missions (2 x Easy, 2 x Medium, 1 x Hard)... and did terribly, killing Guy Grissom in the process. Oops! That's what I get for not testing my Atlas Rockets thoroughly first... 😦 This photo is … Continue reading Leaving Earth from an Airport…
