I just realised that despite doing the RT bit I'd forgotten to wishlist it - now done! :)

Thanks for the key! I've enjoyed it so far - I think it's a bit less up my street than say The Game Is On was, because the block-pushing/maths logic isn't as close to my core enjoyment stuff, but I got through the first island and a chunk of the way beyond that quite happily, and I'll definitely go back and try more of it sometime soon. The puzzles are reasonably challenging but usually were fine after a few tries, which felt about right.

I think my only criticism would be the maps and the nesting of them - it felt weird in the second (or third?) area when some "slots" on the map led to just one puzzle and some slots led to a whole extra nested map. It sort of threw off a sense of progress because it meant you didn't know how far you were through a level, and I think that sense of progression/completion is really important for a game like this where the enjoyment is mostly from beating lots of puzzles. I wonder if it'd also help to vary visual themes in the maps a bit to help the sense of changing things up, rather than just sort of endless nested green islands that get a bit confusing.

The newsletter may be a few days delayed - am in the UK in advance of a big medieval conference, so I'm stressing about conference prep and also covid and it's all quite a lot right now.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Report on someone trying to run a game with an AI bot playing:

And the original reddit thread:

Quite interesting stuff, though not sure how far one would get beyond the short session given.

I think court expansion, as numbers of justices are not specified in the Constitution, is just regular legislation - so if you have enough of a Senate majority to remove the filibuster (which is now dead in the water, it's just a question of who nukes it first), plus a house majority and a president willing to sign off, then you can do it.

Yes - I mean, the Supreme Court can very much be held accountable under the US constitution, but only by the aforementioned paralysed congress which isn't going to do it.

Two more by-elections yesterday, with sizeable opposition wins in both cases: one for the Lib Dems in Tiverton & Honiton, and one for Labour in Wakefield. No real sign of the Tories actually ditching Johnson though as a result.

And it's happened: no constitutional right to control over your own body any more in the US. How utterly horrifying.
