Given the certainly very unique situation caused by the current corona pandemic, I decided to set up a little live blog to document the next couple of weeks representing a mixtures of home office, home schooling, home day care and whatever is yet to come …
In these special times during the COVID-19 pandemic and while staying at home and practicing social distancing day and night, I thought about having an online game night with friends and remembered the good old classic You Don’t Know Jack game I had on my PC ages ago.
Turns out, I actually bought a few Jackbox Party Packs and some other Jackbox Games via HumbleBundle over the years and I just completed my Steam collection via a special offer on Green Man Gaming.
So I wanted to give a quick run-down on which games there are, which one I/we like most and what worked well for us.
For all games you need one computer running the games and a (mobile) device with a browser for each player. That’s it. And while the number of players is limited, many of the games allow for an almost unlimited number of spectators (audience), which can still take part as an extended jury.
Yesterday, I officially finished my habilitation at LMU Munich by picking up my diploma. So from now on it’s not just Dr. rer. nat. it’s also Dr. habil.
My last deed in the process, I did already on 5 February with a scientific debate about my main research topic: “Searches for new physics in signatures of long-lived particles”. Hopefully soon, following some more paperwork, I will also have my venia legendi and be a Privatdozent for experimental physics at LMU Munich.
Looks like I actually had some vacation during and between the holidays :) I got my new 16″ MacBook just before Christmas and finally some time to play a (computer) game I had on my list for ages: FEZ. It’s a beautiful, multifaceted, tricky, creative, crazy fantastic puzzle skill game done by Polytron I bought in a Humble Bundle quite some time ago. Certainly one of the best games I have played so far .. and I’ve played quite a a few (in the past).
Finally having a graphics card again (was broken on my 2010 MacBook), I might try a few more games from my (waiting) list .
