Halloween Games for Elementary School Event

Obviously Pinterest is full of Halloween games for kids, but I'm interested in ideas that you have personally witnessed as successful and fun. My kid's elementary school (grades 1-5, ages 6-11) is having a Halloween night and I'm in charge of games in the gym. [more inside]

1993 KC Royals autograph?

A friend rescued a box of childhood memorabilia from a his parents' house, including this signed stub from the June 8, 1993 Kansas City Royals game. The autograph is illegible, and we'd love to figure out who signed it. It looks like they lost to the Yankees that night, 4-9. The '93 roster was pretty easy to find, but there's no obvious match (unless I'm reading the first letters wrong). Jeff Granger? John Habayan? Thanks, AskMeFi!

Theremins optional, but preferred

I'm looking for Halloween-themed video games. Not just horror games, mind you – but Halloween games, which either specifically involve the holiday, or simply make heavy use of classic Halloween tropes. Hope me? [more inside]

Small, lightweight pack for walks/hiking needed.

I want a lightweight, unobtrusive, comfortable fannypack or other type of carrier that I can use as I take walks through my local forest preserves. Doesn't have to be large--all I need to pack are my ID, phone, keys, and a paperback. Pockets work, except for the book part. Suggestions/links, please!

Camping in eastern Ontario after Thanksgiving

I want to go camping in eastern Ontario after thanksgiving. All the Provincial Parks are officially closed. 20 years ago I used to camp at that time of year all the time as parks ran on the honour system with a box to put money in. Is this still an option? [more inside]

Durable activity trackers for klutzes

I've had Fitbits for a few years and I like them but they have a tendency to get physically destroyed by ordinary wear and tear. Fitbit's warranty service is good but lasts only a year. What is a good fitness tracker that will survive (say) 3 years of 24-hour wear by an active and somewhat clumsy person? [more inside]

Distract me from my dripping sweat.

I'm looking for video series to watch for times that I'm at the gym (elliptical or rower). Something bright, mostly episodic, and will not make me feel uncomfortable if someone else sees what I'm watching. Absolutely no laugh tracks. Something I haven't seen already. [more inside]

Where's Barb??

Can you turn a single speed bike into a 3-speed?

I am shocked at my lack of knowledge about bikes. Someone has a single speed Worksman bike for sale that fits my sudden need of a bike but I really need a 3 speed. Is it something that a bike shop could do for me?

Like Jumanji, but with fewer lions

I want to DIY a board/card game as a gift for my partner, based on a set of characters and world we have built together. I'm looking for already existing games to model off of or just reskin, rather than making a whole new game. [more inside]

Render unto me your papercraft recommendations

So I read the very interesting Irving Harper post and, looking at his papercraft stuff (especially the hanging sculptures) I thought, "I could do simpler, clumsier versions of that stuff and it would still look pretty neat". [more inside]

help me do my D&D homework

D&D 5e tomorrow, last session with these characters, and the DM has said that he's come up with a """"fun""""" and """""really challenging""""" final dungeon. I assume this means he is going to do his level best to murder us all. Help me come up with a legendary-level item to make him work for it. [more inside]

Help my tween have a good time at her first school dance.

This is her first year of middle school in a new district. She's mostly nervous about dancing, so I've been looking for some beginner's tutorials she could be comfortable with, but they look either dated or too advanced. Can you point me to some current, cool, beginner's dance tutorial videos? Bonus: How do kids generally dress for casual dances? Does the dance theme matter for that? Any other tips? [more inside]
