This is the week of the International Toy Fair in Nürnberg. I go there every year with a long time friend of mine. Most of our time we spend in the board games hall. It never ceases to surprise me how much innovation is still possible with these games. This year I’ve bought a few in advance of the fair, which I’m sure we’ll see.

I’ll be posting a live twitter stream at the fair, and will also post some stuff here. I am usually totally blatted after a day walking the halls, so don’t sit up waiting for me like Santa.

I never really finished my last post and ended up publishing it without editing. Just too much going on at the moment. Now that I have a dynamic website I am focusing all my energies on getting that up and running.

For this blog I think I’ll try and get into a routine of posting some of my tasting notes without a lot of prose. This will help me get a feeling for this world of blogging.

Nobody’s reading me yet anyway

Here I am back in Munich. I am a creature of habit, so I was quite pissed to discover that the hotel I usually stay in on business had not been booked. Instead I am back in “The Shabby Hotel”, probably one of the hotels I hate the most here. Oh I suppose it’s OK, it’s just that the rooms are tiny and everything has that sort of stingy feel to it – like plastic cups. “Sheesh guys, glass ain’t that expensive”, and it’s more functional if one of your guests wants to end it all and slash his wrists.
