Last night, I had told Max the story of Theseus and the Minotaur.

So when he said he was feeling bored and wanted to play something. I decided to cook up a mini D&D game for him based on the previous night’s story.

What happens when you want to play a mini DnD and you don’t have the required items? You make your own new game.

Today’s game involved a Scrabble board taking the place of a dungeon or labyrinth. Upside-down tiles become loot/gold and normal tiles formed walls/traps. Theseus was represented by a fish from a fishing game and the Minotaur was a Lego construct.

The rules were simple. Each throw of a dice gets Theseus an equal number of turns whereas the Minotaur can move only one space. A roll of 4 gets Theseus 4 turns in which he can move 1 or more spaces per turn while the same nets only 4 spaces for the Minotaur. Theseus follows the Rook rule as in Chess whereas the Minotaur follows the King rule.

Max was Theseus and I played the Minotaur. It was a fun game that Max enjoyed and I tried to bring in a d20 throw also into the gameplay. Google’s throw a d20 command worked well enough for us.

Now Max will expect more such games… πŸ˜”

My FitBit strap came apart a week back. This is my second replacement band for my FitBit Ionic. Given the #covid-19 situation, getting a replacement band was tough. Most of the sellers had shut shop and no one makes bans for Ionic anymore. I saw a lot of bands for FitBit Charge and Versa though.

A replacement band for my FitBit Ionic for β‚Ή 699.

The first impression is this strap looks rubbery. The process of tightening the strap is ridiculous. They could’ve made it a lot simpler.

Right now, I wish #Chennai was where it was in Pangaea still… #summer
PANGEA POLITICA (capitan-mas-ideas.blogspot.com)

Pangaea is a supercontinent that formed on Earth about 335 million years ago and began to break up about 175 million years ago, eventually forming the familiar continents of today. Massimo Pietrobon made a map that shows where our modern country borders would appear on Pangaea.
