So this actually happened back in August but I still remember this one fondly. I tried out one of the ‘true start location’ maps and selected Brazil. I may have slightly stacked the deck in my favor on this one by manually selecting a bunch of other non-America civilizations so by the time I was discovered I’d already fully settled both South and North America.
I hadn’t really done much infrastructure wise, but boy did I settle all over the place. I think this one was ultimately won with culture, but I’m not positive at this point.
I don’t really see myself posting many achievements from the Jackbox game “Champ’d Up” but I thought I’d mention it at least once because the family enjoys gathering around the computer, drawing to the prompts, and then seeing who trounces who.
Hint: Newbie and Little Miss have an artistic advantage.
It looks like back on the July 4th weekend Little Miss and I had an epic Stardew run. This screenshot says it was taken the morning of July 4 at 2AM.
Only 5.7% of players have gotten the 10 million achievement!
That’s what we’ve been doing too on our Stardew sessions at this point: achievement hunting. It’s weird how we started out, because as I’ve mentioned before the farm’s name is “Joja Farm” because we expected that we were just going for that achievement and then we’d start over but then we realized we could fluff the save file a little, back it up, and once we got the achievement, roll back to that old save file to continue forward without Jojamart.
As I’m scheduling this we’re entering year 5 and are working on the achievements for shipping everything and cooking everything. We almost have all the recipies for cooking and we already have all the supplies ready.
We’re achievement hunting pretty hard on this farm. We got the Joja unlock achievement and through year 3 we gathered all the things we’d need to use to cook every recipe. Oddly we haven’t unlocked every recipe yet, but at least as the year came to a close we’d managed to get these two, plus be ready for the others.
I’m not quite sure what promotion decided to put weird messages on M&M packages but I thought this particular one would be perfect for Snow and me as we played Stardew Valley: “I love being socially awkward with you.”
At this point we’re into year 4 with the island house unlocked. Farthest we’ve ever been!
So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.
I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.
Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at Adventure Rules.
Aw, thanks Kim! 5 games, 5 generations, 5 friends. My theme – great soundtracks!

So one of the neat things about Stellaris are the custom races that you can create.
Well, if you’re going to use what I’ve created, then I need to share what I have DLC wise.
So if you have all these checkboxes checked, you can make what I’ve created exactly.
There unfortunately isn’t a very nuanced way of exporting your races in Stellaris.
The first choice, if you have multiple computers or you’re entering the galaxy at large for the first time with friends, is to simply go to one of the following place (Mac or PC) and sharing this file:
