Winter-een-mas, Mardi Gras

Hello and happy Winter-een-mas, the best gaming holiday you've never heard of.

W-E-M is the last week of January, the 25th through the 31st. Originally a video-gaming only holiday, it's really more accurate to say that it's a celebration of gaming and people who game.

This WEMas, I want to get in more gaming than usual. I want to play a different kind of game each day. Tonight, I played some board games: Ricochet Robots, Manhattan, and Hey That's My Fish. What about the rest of the week? Video games? Sportings games? Invented games? Imaginary games?

Oh, and don't forget: it's Carnival season! Mardi Gras is super early this year, falling on February 5th. Don't forget: Mardi Gras itself is the last day of the holiday, so don't show up and expect fun things to happen on Wednesday. Show up the week before and leading up to Mardi Gras; come spend your money. "New Orleans: closer than Rio!"
