Week 132–133

I’m writ­ing this on a train from Gene­va. It’s been two crazy weeks which explains for the lack of notes for a while. The big thing these past weeks was the first prop­er playtest for Saba. Week 132 was tak­en up by prepa­ra­tions, with Hanne and Karel devel­op­ing a sce­nario and build­ing a paper pro­to­type. […]
