In fact we get a little Greedy Greedy in today’s show as we explore the world of tabletop gaming in Second Life!

Greedy Greedy!

Greedy Greedy!

Join us today, Monday 14th April at 2pm at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for a special viewing party of today’s show as we visit KR Engineering to talk to Karsten Routledge, the creator of Greedy Greedy, probably the most popular board game in Second Life, with over 3000 games played every day.

Karsten talks to us not only about Greedy Greedy but about other tabletop games that he has created – some based on real world games, ancient and modern.

And then we play a game of Greedy Greedy with some friends and teach Elrik how to play, as Karsten offers some special strategic tips for game play!

Join us at 2pm for a end to our current season (and don’t worry – we will actually be back at the end of April).

International Tabletop Day

International Tabletop Day

Today, April 5th is International Tabletop Day – the day to dig out those old boards games (snakes and ladders, monopoly, clue/cluedo, risk – or whatever you love best) and settle down to a good game with friends. Or maybe you’d rather play cards, dice or dominoes … they’re all tabletop.

And, of course, you can play many of these in Second Life with friends from around the world too. So why not set up a game with friends today, or find a cafe with a Greedy Greedy table?

Let’s all enjoy tabletop gaming today!

And, to get you started, here’s a very traditional tabletop game that can be enjoyed by one mor more players – a jigsaw!

Waterlilies by Elicio

Waterlilies by Elicio

Today’s jigsaw comes from my own garden.  Elicio Ember, the owner of Cerridwen’s Cauldron, recently gave me some beautiful and exotic waterlilies that he had created. Elicio has a background in both marine biology and graphic art – the amazing foliage and vegetation he creates is exotic, even alien – but always scientifically plausible.

These lilies are, as you’ll see when you do the jigsaw, stunningly detailed and beautiful. They’re also customisable in terms of their colour, and come in a variety of arrangements. But before you all rush over to buy some at the store at the Cauldron (which is an amazing visual and audible treat in itself) … let’s do a jigsaw.

Petite Village

Petite Village

Last year, at the amazing auction that concluded Fantasy Faire, I bought a really gorgeous petite village, created by Nya Alchemi, the owner of Fuubutsu-Dou & Kirei Shops. They are exquisite – and include cottages, a working windmill, a town hall and a wishing well.  Having gained a little more space on my home island, I have set them out on the shores of a small lake – and they look beautiful.

I have always liked the idea of small buildings that can be used as follies or visual tricks. On my old homestead of Oliveto, I have a miniature Tuscan village with a church, a fountain and tiny cypresses, deliberately placed on the skyline so people looking up would think it a full sized village.  I had it out on Cor Unum too although, without the perspective trick, it was never quite the same.

For the last year I’ve been pulling out individual buildings from this set and planning that one day, no matter what the prim cost, they would find a home. And now they have – and you can do a jigsaw!

And for those of you looking forward to Fantasy Faire … there seem to be some exciting plans in the works so … stay tuned!

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari is a stunning new installation at LEA 13, one of their new round of art intsllations. I read about it on Quan Lavender’s blog, and went to see if it was really as spectacular as her images suggested.

It is.

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari

Created by the artist Xineohp Guisse, there is a story behind it (and a book to collect too, filled with gorgeous images):

According to myths, the Ancients discovered a botanical species; a kind of reed that was capable of resonating a sound frequency when touched. The Ancients harvested these reeds and created a meditative and spiritual garden.

Quite by accident, the Ancients also discovered a symbiotic creature to the reeds; which they named the Pentapuss. The Pentapuss has the same form and biological structure as the reeds, and fed off the soundwaves made by the reeds. In doing so, their movements amongst the reeds nurtured the growth of the reeds to maturity.

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari: A Pentapuss among the reeds

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari: A Pentapuss among the reeds

The Ancients built BioPods and BioSpheres; to nurture these reeds and the young, juvenile pentapussies. They built contemplative Elemental pods at the Chamber of the Ancients, to observe these creatures and plants. They built a music chamber, where they can physically interact with the reeds……

In time, the garden grew to become a beautiful space – to contemplate and be as one with the beings that surrounds them.

Do go and visit but – in the meantime – here is a jigsaw.
