Hello Reader!

 

I have always enjoyed playing board games, but like most Brazilians of my age (and those that came before and after us) I grew up with the limited options available here that, generation after generation, populate the game sections of toy stores along puzzles.

 

If you’re reading this in English you probably had more options than us when it came to board games in your childhood, but here in Brazil our list of board games was limited to The Game of Life,  Monopoly, War, Picture This, Combat… and that’s pretty much it. I’m probably forgetting a few games and I’m purposefully leaving a few of the more childish ones out of the list (Pop-Up Pirate and Operation, I’m looking at you) but that list was pretty much what me and every friend of my own age had at home to entertain us when it rained during our holidays and we couldn’t play outside, and that’s why I believe a lot of people of my age have abandoned board games as an entertainment option as playing the same thing over and over again gets old fast.

Salve Leitor!

 

Eu sempre gostei de jogos de tabuleiro mas como a maioria dos brasileiros cresci com as opções limitadas do mercado que geração após geração preencheram as prateleiras da seção de jogos das lojas de brinquedo juntamente com os quebra cabeças.

 

Tenho certeza que você também conhece a lista: Ludo, War, Banco Imobiliário, Jogo da Vida, Detetive, Imagem e Ação, Combate… acho que é isso. Posso estar me esquecendo de algum e estou deixando de mencionar outros jogos mais infantis (Pula Pirata e Operação estou olhando para vocês) mas via de regra essa era a lista de jogos que eu e todo amigo da minha idade tinha em casa para nos entreter quando invariavelmente chovia nas férias e não podíamos brincar na rua (tem um artigo interessante no Retromotoca com fotos de um catálogo dos jogos da Estrela da época), e quero crer que esse é o motivo pelo qual a maioria das pessoas da minha geração deixou os jogos de tabuleiro de lado, já que jogar sempre a mesma coisa enjoa.

Hello Reader.

 

Just a quick update today to let you guys know that The Painting Frog now has its own Facebook page.

 

I have been toying with the idea for a while now and it seems important these days to have a way of communicating more dynamically with one’s audience. In the case of the blog it makes a lot easier for readers to keep up to date with what’s being published without having to visit the blog every day.

 

The Painting Frog, now with 100% more Facebook.

Hello Reader!

 

“Stay a while and listen”… yep I could begin today’s article quoting Deckard Cain’s famous words as I believe you’re about to join me in an incredible adventure after hearing reading what I have to say today. I’ve already drunk the Kool-Aid when it comes to Mantic Games’ newest project on Kickstarter, “Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest”, so you might as well join me in a quest for high adventure (cue in the “Anvil of Crom” theme).
