Friday before a bank holiday weekend rejoice thread


#1

Sup DiS? Any exciting #BankHolidayWeekend plans?

I am going to have my first weekend at home with the TV and no visitors since… May! Psyched to do not very much really.


#2

Hello! I’m excited that this has started whilst I’m still up. I’m sat round a campfire on a beach and it’s very nice, however the group has just had a huge argument over fireworks and it’s all gone a bit awkward. ‘This is like Brexit all over again’ has just been uttered.

Going :whale: watching tomorrow morning and then :bear: hunting in the afternoon.


#3

Might get an early morning bath in


#4

laelfs!

That scene you’ve painted has both made me chuckle and feel sympathy - I think it probably needs this emoji? :upside_down_face:

What kinda whales are one the cards? Saw some humpbacks once and the scale was just baffling.


#5

:muscle: Any plans after that?


#6

We met a group who did it today who saw killer, humpback and orcas, however they reckoned that they only turned up after several people had thrown up over the side :nauseated_face:


#7

That reads like you’re obliged to vomit to attract them :grimacing:


#8

They’re replacing all the windows on the BBC building, directly across the road from this Airbnb apartment. There’s a big loud crane and lots of loud workers. They were still at it when I got here at half eight yesterday evening.

They finished up at 6.34 am.

I asked for a large coffee in the café nearby just now and the man said they only do one size, would I like two? I think he was joking but I had to think about it.

I’m supposed to be penoiding at a national level this weekend. Not sure I can do 14 games in a row on this little sleep. Side events only today, we’ll see how I get on.


#9

Vidyagames then meeting a mate for coffee.

Also will think hard about music and make none


#10

I’ll try my best!


#11

:grimacing:
Is there some kind of report written up on tournaments like these? Remembering going down a rabbit hole once which led to me reading on the world champs for RFTG which was kinda amazing.


#12

Sometimes the winner will write something up but I don’t think they will for this one - a new banned and restricted list came out last week, but it was too late for this tournament so we’ll by playing in a basically solved metagame. And with a couple of really unfun cards in the pool that were removed in the new list :confused:


#13

Glorified 0s and Xs then, eh?


#14

Yeah, I’m working through the whole weekend and Monday. Yay


#15

Ooft sorry man :cry:


#16

Well, a really great thing about Netrunner is that your in-game decisions (as opposed to pre-game deckbuilding decisions) matter a lot more than in other card games, so it’s not rock/paper/scissors even in polarised matchups.

But I need to be awake to make good decisions.


#17

Saw Lightning Bolt last night


#18

Was quite muggy out.


#19

Top bants eps


#20

It’s my birthday tomorrow/last day of Eid so people I know will be offended if I lay about doing nothing which is all I want to do tbh, I’ve had a really tough week :weary: on the other hand the weather should be ok, August bank holidays always have such shit weather
