I hope you all had a great week! I traveled to teach my last workshop of 2019, and I'm glad to be home. Onwards!

Something that interested me this week
I played the board game Wingspan for the first time this week, and it was a WONDERFUL experience! I really, really enjoyed it. It wasn't too long, has beautiful art, had some complex ideas (which makes me excited to play it again), and the parts were all pretty high quality, too. I love a good board game, so I'm really excited to add this one to my repertoire!
I ended up looking up the designer of the game, Elizabeth Hargrave. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the designer and all of the artists behind Wingspan were women (which is rare) and I had to learn more! She seems to be a fascinating person, and my favorite thing about her website by far was her database of Women and Nonbinary Board Game Designers. Check it out!
