I have googled and installed like a fiend but have yet to find a solution for the problem of playing card games with someone remote. I've tried a number of the "cards with friends" apps but they've been either poorly designed or a pain in the ass to use. Any suggestions? App options need to work on iOS / Mac.
I'm looking for the name of (and link to!) a web-based game very similar to this Color Match game. I have tried googling but have failed, so I'm hoping the hivemind can help. (I may have even discovered the game on mefi somewhere). [more inside]
Is it possible to buy the embroidery hoop equivalent of pre-stretched canvases like these? That is, can I buy a collection of cheap embroidery hoops, each already set up with white fabric suitable for embroidering? If so, where? [more inside]
I'm thinking of joining (as a volunteer) a professional chorus that performs with the local symphony opera. [more inside]
I would like to get my four grandchildren craft kits for Christmas. Their mom thinks it would be fun if they were all doing the same thing. Their ages are 12, 9, 6, and 4. Bonus points if you know about felting. Snowflakes inside. [more inside]
Greetings to the hive mind! I'm going to the beach for a week and need some book recommendations. I'm looking for something entertaining, some parameters below the fold. [more inside]
I plan to hand weave a luxuriously soft bed blanket for myself. I am a handspinner so will be able to spin blends if required. Which protein fiber should I use? Qiviut/Vicuna is too expensive but I do have cashmere/silk/yak/baby camel/alpaca etc. in my stash. It does not need to be really warm (I live in a warm climate) but I will like it to be as soft and luxurious as sleeping under a cloud.
One of my housemates is an active knitter and sometimes complains of aching hands. She's past retirement age and has a little onset of arthritis. I've found some fingerless lycra support gloves that claim to help with that sort of thing. Do any of our knitters have experience with these things, and if they do help, is there a good brand I should look at?
Any good cat fiction out there? [more inside]
Looking for a mobile app to multiplay poker (preferably Texas Hold 'Em) remotely without in-app purchases. iOS good, cross-platform even better. More than happy to pay for the app. (Suggestions for any other card games in this mold welcomed.)
I'm taking a football-loving six-year-old boy to the England v. Spain friendly at Wembley this week. This will be the first pro football (or "soccer," for Americans) match either of us have ever attended, and I know next to nothing about the sport. What advice would you give me for having a fun and safe night out? [more inside]
So my son is about to be six and he's having a "Castles, Kings and Queens" party (his choice of theme!) at our house at the end of this week. Like him, I too love drawbridges, moats, crenellations, portcullises etc etc. [more inside]
Are there still bottles, kegs—anything—out there in the wild that contain Coca-Cola from back when Coca-Cola contained (trace amounts of) cocaine? If yes, would I be breaking laws by purchasing it? [more inside]
I'm currently unemployed and waiting for a school program to start. I've been having trouble finding things to do during the day so I'm not stuck home and depressed. Any ideas of what I can do to kill a whole working day's worth of time?
Is it possible to arrange a one-day deep water soloing excursion in Majorca? [more inside]
I am going to sing at a karaoke bar tomorrow night. Yay! I haven't done karaoke since I was 12, and I have a girlish soprano voice that sounds terrible with most pop and rock. Boo! Help me find something that is both fun and impressive? [more inside]
We have had some success with toys one can acquire in bits and pieces and combine to make one big bin that gets more fabulous over time. We are looking for ideas for further toys which lend themselves to such a system. [more inside]
I am thinking of getting a Cheerson CX-20 quadcopter. I also want to use Mission Planner software on my tablet to set flight plans for the drone. What do I have to do to the flier and the tablet to get them to communicate with each other?
Looking for beginner calligraphy pen recommendations. Details within. [more inside]
