It's Awe of Understanding mark 2.0. If you're here, then you are looking for games, or perhaps Bakkenalia, or maybe you just want to hear me rant. Whatever your poison, have fun!

Bakkenalia X approaches

With the advent of August, the tenth annual Bakkenalia game festival is only a few short weeks away! In the next couple of days, we will be posting important information like schedules and meal plans for the Labor Day Weekend. Remember that this year we are holding Bakkenalia in Buffalo Grove, with both the Bakke and Leesch household as part of the plan.

Events this year include the traditional LARP (see the next story), a new tabletop game from the team that brought you Three if by Air, Frisbee Golf, Improvisation games, and much more!

The Scottish Play

This year's Bakkenalia LARP is the story of the Paddington Players, as they try to save their fortunes by putting on Macbeth, the most cursed of all theatrical productions. If you are interested, the LARP will be running twice - September 2 and September 9. The September 2 run is almost full, but there is plenty of room September 9.

If you are interested, take a look at the flyer here. Or you can go straight to the casting form.

Rants and Rambles has moved

For my loyal viewer, (ok, it's only a couple of months old) I am in the process of moving my blog from to this site. I have moved all of the articles and comments, and I am now in the process of setting up my old sidebar information. As soon as this site is completely up, look for more insights and pith.
