I'm playing corporation games like that annoying man spoke of. And LOSING

ME: hmm I could treat myself to a game of Noita to relax and have fun MY BRAIN: oh you'd like that, wouldn't you

Wrote a browser extension to enforce better Go play on OGS! Also: a spectacular visual effect when games end. #opensource

Taking β€œvacation” this week by only playing the most boring computer games and not thinking about terrifying AI

Hoping this Knives Out sequel also has Go as its central board game... it would be extremely disappointing if Backgammon were instead featured

Not enough board games use a dedicated computer terminal to drive the gameplay, he said ominously

If you like animals, then Go is the game for you

Some games of Go are friendlier than others. LEFT: an exhibition game I played with another streamer RIGHT: an all-out scrap with an internet stranger #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

A completed Go game with lots of empty space on the board. A tangled messy Go game with very little empty space left.

I found this game aesthetically pleasing. Black wins by 3.5

A finished Go game. W occupies the corners and has invaded B's large center from the bottom. Dead stones and territory marked.

Excluding games – what's a piece of software you *like*? Something that gets the job done, but also you enjoy using it. No reason, I'm just interested

Salvaged the last game of the day with a successful invasion, hell yes

90's puzzler System's Twilight holds up extremely well on the replay. One of my favourite games ever probably @zarfeblong

The world map in System's Twilight. The orange main character visits the workshop. The player chats with another character above a digital river, "The Data Stream". A coloured-ball maze puzzle.

THINGS I MISS ABOUT THE OFFICE - the ping pong table - ping pong breaks with coworkers - ping pong and beers after work - ping pong rivalries with other companies - that feeling of hitting a perfect spin shot to win the ping pong game

They should make a computer game where you start off with a melee weapon, quickly find a pistol, get an underwhelming submachine gun after that, and then a shotgun

He is wrecking the exercise mat but he loves this game so much

Charlie fishing around under the curled end of my exercise mat. I hid a fuzzy ball toy under there and he wants to grab it.

A β€œsnapback” decides the game! If W plays at K9 to capture the marked stone, B plays again at L9 to capture W's group. W resigned here. #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #SickGoTakedownsForBeginnerGoPlayers #weiqi #baduk

B puts W in atari, forcing the stone's own capture. B will "snap back" to capture W's group by playing in the same spot.
