The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Getting Old

Upside — I know quite a bit of trivia. For example, a trivia game asked the artist for the 2008 Grammy winning album “River: The Joni Letters.” And I was the only one who knew it.

Downside — I could have sworn that came out at least 5 years earlier. The really odd thing is that I could have sworn I bought it before I moved back to Texas, because I think I remember which store I bought it at, and that wasn’t in Texas. But I may be confusing it with the store I bought Heathen in.

Double Downside — I just revealed that I buy music in physical locations, so I’m truly old.

  1. Yeah, getting old is a bitch, particularly when it interferes with your gaming. When I first met you, I considered Time’s Up to be my savant game, as I had a near encyclopedic knowledge of trivia. Unfortunately, that’s trivia that no one I game with knows anything about, while I am similarly ignorant of anything that happened after 1990. It’s getting harder and harder to play party games that involve cultural knowledge at the Gathering with all these young pups (you know, the ones in their 30’s and 40’s), and that is a real hardship.

    Guess the only thing I can do is to tell them all to GET OFF MY LAWN!!!
