👋 Hi, I'm Kelsey #introduction
I'm a mom, home cook, book reader, wife, and hobby collector.
I do #datascience as a living, and on my own time like experimenting with #procgen, #gamedev, and #interactivefiction in small projects. I like #ttrpg(s), and #boardgames. I'm usually reading #scifi, or #philosophy.
@kelseyfrog hi fellow data scientist/ reader! Would love to get to know you and talk boardgames and scifi
@ansate hi Melissa. I've been liking lighter / social games lately like Wavelength, or Hivemind, or even Can't Stop with a brain burner from time to time like El Grande or Rajas of the Ganges or
Grand Austria Hotel. I'll play anything at least once :)
For scifi I absolutely loved Silo, and read through all the Expanse series, and will always be a sucker for Greg Egan. :) How about you?
@kelseyfrog i have not played AnY of those! We’ve been playing Stella, a dixit expansion. And Azul and Welcome To on boardgame arena.
I have read most of the Expanse series, and intend to read the rest. I collect John Brunner novels, and I’ve been reading mostly fantasy lately. I justread the fourth book in Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina series - I’ve loved all four!
@ansate Welcome To is fantastic! I love playing it on BGA too. I just learned Azul last week. It was fun too. I'm always on the lookout for book recommendations. I'll have to check out Brunner and Hartman. Would Stand on Zanzibar be a good place to start?
@kelseyfrog Stand on Zanzibar is amazing, but kind of a lot. I recommend starting with Shockwave Rider if you can find a copy.
Oh and I just started Rogue Protocol, book 3 in Murderbot! I feel like 2 was better than 1 and 3 is making me laugh a bit more.
Just a place for frogs on the internet
