The game Mob Town is currently up on Kickstarter and needs more backers in order to reach some of the awesome stretch goals that will make this the best game it could be! The publisher and designer have recently figured out a way to lower the cost of the stretch goals which was very cool of them. I’ve printed and cut out the print and play version of this game and can personally attest to how fun and unique this game is. Everyone in my family enjoyed this game. The map for each round has a really cool mechanic making it different every time you play it. Every game would be even more unique with the cards gained by reaching the stretch goals. Do yourself a favor and check out the campaign before it ends! You can’t beat the price at $25 (or $35 to also get the expansion).

This, our next trip, will begin Friday afternoon. We’re going around Lake Michigan… all the way around, but we’re not driving the official Great Lakes Circle Tour route or anything. The inspiration was some crazy hotel points deal that gets us multiple free nights for staying one night at each of four hotel chains. A couple of those chains have very few US locations… we found one in Michigan, but practically in Canada, so we’re renting a car and making a crazy road-trip out of it. Some of the markers on that map are hotels, some are restaurants that I purchased Groupons or Living Social deals for, and some are Tim Horton’s. And we’re cramming it all into one weekend(!), so if you’ve got any can’t-miss suggestions close to our route, let us know, soon, so we can figure out if we have enough time to fit it in.
We may just using the hotel deals as an excuse to make up for all the not-traveling that’s been happening, lately… a few weeks after this trip, we’re going to our fourth of four hotel chains with a short visit to Minneapolis… every time I think about it, That Dog jumps into my head.
Maybe we’re not taking advantage of these hotel deals in the easiest or most cost-effective way… and it does sort of feel like a vicious circle. But it’s turned this year into one full of travel, and it’s been great, so far. The plan is to use all the points for several nights of family vacation, probably in Texas sometime in November? We’ll probably cash in our airline miles and vouchers, too, because we might be traveling like it, but we are not made of money.
