@namtari Not really very surprising, considering what else is there. We need more people with some better values being active there.

Libreture: simple storage for e-books? Or ....SUPER-AMAZING DISCOVERY TOOL FOR NEW E-BOOKS, AUTHORS AND BOOKSHOPS?

Okay, well it's both.

@neltnerb Oh wow, that's very cool! Would be even cooler if you could play the game within the game, though. Still, that's awesome :D

Jesus! I just played a game against a human online, and I was winning so much I felt bad for the other player. Until the very end when I made a couple of mistakes and we ended up in exactly this same position! And then they won! smh! Great game!

@MxCraven Wow, that's awesome! I'd love to have a physical version myself. You don't happen to have a picture? :)

@katnjiapus I had to speed it up, hehe, but since it's linked from the game site I did actually watch all of it :)

Have you heard of the Royal game of Ur?

It's a 4000 year old game found in a royal gravesite in the ancient city of Ur. What's truly amazing about it is that we've also found a clay tablet with the rules for it! The oldest rule book in the world!

I had not heard of it, until I found this beautiful Free and open source online digital version of it! It looks great, and it's fun too! And you can play two player locally

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Happy Public Domain Day 2021! We should be able to celebrate a lot more works becoming free each year (terms are indefensibly long, even if you believe that copyright law itself has merit), but let's celebrate the growth of the commons regardless. This article has a good overview of some works that are now free:

Can you see the numbers in their silhouettes?
Here is my illustration to wish the end of the pandemic for 2021. Let's hope it will happen.
Happy New Year!

@openstreetmap I've never mapped so much before. It was a lot of fun, my version of gaming this year.
