Spurred on by Jess managing to blog from the Antipodes I thought I should write something too. It is our first First Tuesday of 2016 tonight so we’ll be back at Bristol Games Hub at 7pm. (A slightly later start in 2016 as I now work tuesdays til 6.15 and then have to race across town to let people in.)
Tonight we will be focusing on playing a couple of games – Jenny’s board game & Claire’s online text-based adventure that started as her teaching herself to code and is now a wonderfully inventive piece of work complete with pixel gif animations.
We had a look at both of these very different games back in December when a small but lively bunch of us met at Watershed for pre-Xmas sociable drinking and getting to know each other. Always great to meet new women with lots of ideas and talents and get them talking. That’s a lot of what we are about here at Grrrl Games. So as well as sharing outrageous stories and admiring new tattoos we did talk about the games. Jenny brought along the Space board game she made as part of her Uni course as she wanted some feedback on it – absolutely beautifully crafted piece of work (hand-carved in stone and then 3D printed spaceships!!) that I hope to learn to play this evening at our January First Tuesday.
Claire is bringing the latest version of her game too for us to play as well. I’ll ask if I can share some screenshots of her latest crop of animated animals.
