    Hey all! A few quick thoughts as I finally recover from a crazy 6 day long strep which torn me to shreds:

    • Only positive of being bedridden on Wednesday and Thursday? Having the chance to play probably around 8 hours of Fez. Got through the first 32 cubes without FAQs and actually figured out some of the game’s “language”. I have started my second playthrough and I’ll admit it…. I gave up on the alphabet after a few hours of trying and I looked up where to find the hint(s) for it. I completely MISSED it/them the 1st time so I would been running around for hours (which I don’t have) aimlessly. Figured it out and I am now working through everything without any more assistance. Just a wonderful experience and completely not what I expected in the end – Jeff Gerstmann ‘s “rant” about it on the last Bombcast sums up the whole thing nicely I think. Don’t think I will get as far as @bluesforbuddha or @gkokoris have but I will try as much as I can handle.
    • @zegolf Welcome back! Regarding the board games, I have also started to delve into the area mostly through iOS versions but I have played some in actual board form. I would highly recommend Ticket to Ride and Catan. Great starter games that should peak your interest nicely. I wish I had more to recommend but none of my friends really my interest past Catan and I haven’t really found a board game group in the area to join with to try games like Pandemic or Arkham Horror :p Either way, enjoy the plunge!
    • My fitocracy activity for our group will commence soon – my regular running up and down Mont Royal here in MTL will begin as soon as I am 100% from this damn sickness
    • Also, any free-ish Asynch multiplayer iOS to recommend? Hero Academy is satisfying me nicely right now but I’m always open to trying other experience. Which reminds me: what happened to our Carsassone group? I’m looking at you @angryjedi @ajguy @rocgaude 😉

    All right, Squaddies. Who wants to get fit and have a bit of fun doing it? Sign up for Fitocracy at this link and start tracking your fitness stuff. The site lets you record your workouts and earn points for them in an RPG stylee. It works via the Web, or there’s also an iPhone app.

    Alongside exercise tracking, there are also “quests” that provide you with various challenges and routines to try out if you’re stuck for inspiration or feeling bored. It’s rounded off with some cool community features, including a “Challenge” feature where members of a group can compete to see who can earn the most points in a set time period, and a PvP system is coming soon.

    Me, Ajguy, MJPilon, Chris and a few others are already signed up. Some of us use it more than others, though. 🙂 It’d be cool to get a bit of community spirit and camaraderie going in there, so if you’re hitting the gym or getting running, give it a shot!

    @beige I sent you an invite to your GMailz. Enjoy. And join the Squadron of Shame group on there when you’re all set up.

    Ladies and gents. If any of you are getting (or already have) the fitness bug and want some friendly competition, I have a few invites for Fitocracy available. It’s a fitness tracking site that also has some social game elements — you get XP and levels for completing workouts and there are quests and achievements. There’s also a Group system where we can have competitions and whatnot. Mr @rocgaude is already participating, as if my brother.

    It’s in closed beta, so invite-only for the minute — if you want one, though, let me know the email address you want an invite sent to.
