merp1 asked: 'The Art Of Game Design' by Jesse Schell is also a great book on game design if you're looking for any more to read.

So I’ve finalized my book order (although wasn’t able to order lovely board games due to insane shipping costs that amazon tried to throw at me) and I’m very happy with it. Raph Koster’s A Theory of Fun For Game Design Mike McShaffry: Game Coding Complete, 4th Edition As a side note… I’m completely obsessed with Raph Koster now. He’s one of the minds...
Closing at 5pm?… Not cool, not cool at all. Worked out alright. Went and saw the last like 3/4 of the new spiderman while waiting to watch the new batman but I wanted new clothes damnit!

So I decided to do a blitz support round before heading to bed… our team kept making very dumb decisions so I (calmly) offered some advice. We ended up stomping thanks to our top lane doing reasonably well, my grabs and my ADC having a brain (lets face it… as long as you can keep them alive they just need to right click something and you win the game).
