Not Marsellus Wallace’s soul—just another New Year’s family tradition. We light a candle—usually a tea light—before midnight, and carry it through every room of the house before letting it burn out in its own before morning. #happynewyear #newyearseve #newyearsday #newyear #2019 #blog #blogger #blogging #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #geekdad #nerdlife #geek #nerd #pulpfiction #candle #holidaytraditions #traditions
New Year’s tradition Number 1 — Making pretzels with my sister-in-law’s family. #happynewyear #newyear #newyearsday #2019 #happyholidays #blog #blogger #blogging #lifestyleblogger #lifestyleblog #nerddad #geekdad #nerd #geek
This New Year’s Eve pretzel is either a tie fighter or a Green Lantern logo—you decide. #newyears #newyearseve #holidaytraditions #holidays #traditions #geekdad #geek #nerdfamily #nerd #dccomics #comicbooks #comics #starwars #tiefighter #greenlantern #newyear #pretzels #foodphotography
I know these are road segments from Game of Thrones Catan—but am I the only one seeing bacon here? #bacon #notbacon #gameofthrones #catan #got #gameofthronescatan #boardgames #boardgame #gaming #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #bgg #boardgamegeek #geek #geekdad #nerdlife #nerd
Okay—so apparently only one guy got the memo that the guards are supposed to be defending the Seven Kingdoms from the wildlings north of the wall—i.e. to the right. #got #gameofthrones #catan #gameofthronescatan #thenightswatch #didntgetthememo #coworkers #boardgames #boardgame #tabletopgames #gaming #games #geekdad #geek #nerdlife #nerd #bgg #boardgamegeek
Another toy-centric view of the inside of the LEGO mini-fig parts bin at the Ross Park Mall. Or maybe a trash compactor beneath a holding cell on the Death Star. (Editorial note: They did also have a Death Star playset—in addition to Hogwarts Castle and numerous other high-end builds.) #lego #legos #legostore #minifigures  #minifig #minifigure #starwars #toys #toyphotography #toyphoto #artphoto #artphotography #photoart #photographyart #photography
A view of the inside of the custom mini-fig parts bin from the LEGO store at the Ross Park Mall. Or, perhaps more appropriately, a picture of a geek dad taking a photo of the custom mini-fig parts bin. #lego #legostore #rossparkmall #pittsburgh #geekdad #geek #nerdlife #nerd #toys #toyphotography #artphoto #artphotography #photoart #photography #photographyart
It was a LEGO-filled weekend as my family first made custom mini-figs at the newly minted LEGO store in the Ross Park Mall and then spent several hours playing LEGO DC Super Villains on the Xbox. #lego #legostore #rossparkmall #pittsburgh #xbox #xboxone #gamer #gaming #games #toys #geekdad #geek #nerdlife #nerd
I always like visiting the Ross Park Mall outside of Pittsburgh around the holidays to see their decorations—not limited to the ones that may or may not look like Patronuses. #merrychristmas #christmas #happyholidays #happynewyear #newyears #patronus #harrypotter #geekdad #geek #nerdlife #nerd #expectopatronum #rossparkmall
Some more reminiscences—proposed rules variants to go with the additional custom cards I created for Wonder Forge’s “Axis of Villains.” #dccomics #wonderwoman #superheroes #superhero #games #gaming #boardgame #boardgames #tabletop #tabletopgames #comics #comicbooks #dice #dicegames #justiceleague #jla #aquaman #shazam #axisofvillains #wonder forge #bgg #boardgamegeek #cards #cardgames #geek #nerd #nerddad
Reminiscences — In this case, about that time when I made my kids additional cards for Wonder Forge’s super-fun DC Comics-themed tower defense  game “Axis of Villians.” My daughter was disappointed to find Wonder Woman absent from the playable character list—an omission I intended to address through some simple customizing. But since I can never do anything halfway, that “simple customizing” only ended 27 characters later after I made them profiles for the remaining charter members of the Justice League and many of the most prominent recruits of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. (Sigh.) #dccomics #wonderwoman #superheroes #superhero #games #gaming #boardgame #boardgames #boardgaming #tabletop #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #supergirl #greenarrow #blacklightning #cyborg #comics #comicbooks #dice #dicegames #dicegame #justiceleague #jla #flash #aquaman #firestorm #shazam #axisofvillains #wonderforge
