March Madness!

March 22, 2010

College basketball has been very good this year: Only 1 ACC team has made it to the Sweet 16, multiple double-digit seeds have made it to the sweet 16, Cornell has broken the record for most wins by an Ivy League school in one year with 29, the overall #1 seed lost in the top 32 to a 9 seed. My favorite team Duke has made it back to the Sweet 16 for the first time in awhile. No North Carolina, UCLA, UConn, or other big powerhouse school are in the dance this year. The Nit has mulitple past NCAA winners.

Alice, You’ve returned!

Alice in Wonderland was fantastic. Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and  Helena Bonham Carter team up again in this Tim Burton Adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. If you have seen Tim Burton’s adaptation of Choclate factory then you know what kind of dark word to expect in this movie. The movie is sort of a sequel as it appears that Alice has already been to Wonderland before. The movie features a realtize newcomer as the lead.

Ticket to Ride

March 6, 2010

Ticket to Ride is a European board game that has become popular outside of Europe. The board is based of a map, depending on which version of the game you have, I have played the Europe and USA verison. The board has cities that are connected by train outlines. These trains have a color: red, orange, pink, blue, black, green, or yellow. On you turn you can either build, take train cards or destination cards. To start you are given 3 destinations which you must complete. To complete a destination card you draw cards that correspond to the color train segment you wanna build. Your destinations will have two cities on them that you must connect together with a train. Players take turns tring to complete there destinations. Often your opponent will take a segment that you need and this is what really makes the game good.
