This Day in Blogging History: Sony stops making cassette player/recorders; Cthulhuclaus; Mental card-games without a referree


I still own state of the art tech in handset regard, yo, old school tech, adept.

To small tape.



I still can’t get used to Sony calling their Mp3 players ‘Walkman’ because that’s a cassette player.
A Walkman will always be a cassette player.

This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Mr. Phelps.

Re mental card games; I never did complete the design for my imaginary-card game. Basic concept was to start with something like poker. Make up your own hand and write it down. Reveal hands. Any two hands which share a card are invalid; after that, score normally. (Or perhaps just lose the conflicting cards, then score what’s left normally.) The goal, of course, is to guess the other players’ strategy and style well enough to come up with a hand that scores better but avoids their probable hands… or perhaps tries to sabotage someone’s hand, depending on how the game is going.

Needs playtesting and refining. Working title was “Psy”.
