Remembering Robin Williams

Remembering Robin Williams

About three months after my heart attack. I was asked the go and introduce Robin Williams at the Fox when he came to town. I got there an hour early because I wanted to make sure that everything went well. After meeting David Steinberg he asked if I would you like to meet Robin. Of course, I said.

We went to Robin Williams room made introductions, some small talk. I told him that I had spent time growing up in Denver, Colorado and also in Boulder, where the Mork and Mindy house was. He explained how the owner of the house had sued the production company  several times never really winning because as the show became so popular. People come by it at all hours screaming for Mork or Mindy to come out.

I talked about how the food in his room was heart healthy and he said he had open heart surgery sometime before that and was trying to eat healthy. I said I had a heart attack and I died and he immediately shot back " show off !".

David said let's go back to my room and go over  the script .

Local game designer looking for success with Kingdoms in Peril

If you're a board game enthusiast who's always on the lookout for a new addition, you may want to check out local Spokane designer Thomas Kaufman and his fast-paced, highly competitive card game Kingdoms in Peril.

I had the chance to sit down and learn Kingdoms recently, and picked it up almost immediately. Set in the ancient middle east (the cards themselves designed with historical carvings from 700 BC, featured in the British museum), each player builds their own kingdom of villages and towns with their capital as the crowning jewel.

Once set-up is complete, players then go to work building a hand of cards that houses their armies, equipment and defensive tactics before turning on each other in an ancient battle royal. To the victor go the spoils, and with a two-hour time limit the winner is declared by either a tally of points (each village, town and city has a numbered value when captured) or when one kingdom emerges victorious.
