Chicken Soup for the Nerd's Soul
Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to take a 5-day rock climbing vacation to Hueco Tanks. The days were spent trekking miles through the barren, yet still amazingly beautiful, Texas desert and climbing razor-sharp volcanic rock, while the nights were spent screaming over brutal ping pong matches and perhaps my new greatest addiction ever… Settlers of Catan.
I tend not to be a terribly nerdy guy. Yes, I’m a developer and wear glasses, but I’ve never once touched a Dungeons and Dragons or World of Warcraft game. However, Settlers of Catan somehow magically traps even the manliest in an all-out nerdfest that quickly escalates to fun-to-watch temper tantrums and name calling.
Seriously, get the frickin’ game… it’s amazing.
