I'm a mid-30s guy who loved the traditional animation of my youth. I never really grew out of cartoons. Don Bluth is my spirit animal.

Gaming without the grind?

I've got a long-running itch to play video games. They're insufficiently like work (relative to my other hobbies) that they're an appealing way to decompress, and I can do them when it's cold/wet/dark... but I am absolutely not motivated by the grind. Help me find something that will absolutely not require collecting all/some/the last/the only McGuffin(s). [more inside]

Please suggest some tools that I can get for making my own jewellery.

So I've made bits and pieces of jewellery like necklaces with clasps and such, but that's as far as I've gone. I'd like to take it a step further by making more complex bits of jewellery like bracelets and (in particular) earrings out of recycled metals; but I'm not sure what tools I would need or how to go about making the actual earrings and the metal that loops through the ear etc. Can anyone give me some advice on this or recommend me any books or the like that will help set me off to a good start with this?

You and some (allegedly) hyper intelligent extraterrestrial take turns placing tokens (colonies, energy nodes, whatever) on a series of boards that change from round to round. Tokens next to the token you place get 'flipped' to your color. There was console art depicting spacey aliens with pseudopods. [more inside]
