First off, apologies for all those who’ve been missing the DWS molten eloquence. I’ve taken on a new start-up project, so it’s all busy busy busy (mainly working out what I’ll do with my untold riches when my ship comes in – colossal equestrian statues and gold-plated yachts, I imagine). There have been some good […]


OK, so the party season has definitely kicked off. We’re a week into December and already the diary’s pretty much full of Christmassy events (including one entry on the 16th December that just says ‘getting pissed’ – no idea where or why). And among the drunken revelry there’s time for some games stuff. Last night […]

In the meantime, I’ve just come across a link to the Play On Conference, a celebration of play in New York City this October. I’ve taken far too many trips this year to justify […]


A lot of press about this one: a new maze has been set up in Trafalgar Square until Friday, based on different bits of London. So it’s got a Chinatown area and Carnaby Street 60s party, and, I think, a Baker Street bit with Sherlock Holmes (could be wrong about that though; I saw it […]
