This is a board for the vidya, toys, games, food, and memories that keep us young at heart (and mind)

Board games! Roleplaying games! Traditional and modern, chess and Dungeons & Dragons.

Do you have games in your heart you liked to play when you were young? What comes to mind when you think of a vacation at your grandparents, what sort of games did they pull out from that old toy-box?

For me it's pic related, Mühle. English name: Nine Men's Morris. I was always a bit too slow for chess but this I could play easily. This week I also started playing Go online. I might get really into it,

It captures the idea of "Easy to learn, Hard to master" very well. I like the philosophy of always looking to improve in the face of losing. I played & played & played and lost maybe 27 games of 30 but then I played against a friend who only knew the rules and I won every game somehow with just a few days of experience.

OP here again. Tomorrow is christmas and I get a Go board as a gift, it's very nice. I regret not asking for a more expensive one but plastic will do for now because I have an idea.

I promised myself that if I get to 10kyu I'll buy a more fancy & expensive one. I hope that after all those lockdowns my local Go club meets again so I can muster up some courage and go there.

For me, it was Tamagotchi. Even the bootleg ones were awesome. I remember buying them in one of those cheap street markets at the town during holydays. It was summer, I was with my grandparents and I remember them dying after like a week and me having to reset the game no matter how much I took care of my creature. When the summer ended and I was back at school I let my Tamagotchi with my mother until I was back at home. Maybe I should buy one for nostalgia.

I had TMNT figures, Street Sharks, and Extreme Dinosaurs. Never did have a battle or anything with them though. Mainly just had them team up against other "baddies" I had laying around. I did use to have all of my figures in some really big toy cars/trucks I had do a bunch of races though. I'm sure I probably pitted them against each other in that manner.

Yeah, it definitely wasn't graphically on par with some of the other games at the time and being a later PlayStation game at that. But as you put it, it's EXTREMELY comfy.

Finally got around to watching it. Definitely had to get some good laughs out of a lot that he said. So true points such as Twin-headed Thunder Dragon being your best friend in the beginning of the game until you grind your life away trying to get better cards. I still remember literally having to beat the mages 400+ times myself and doing the exact memory card "cloning" of cards. Speaking of that, I should still have a memory card with my save data on it if nothing has happened to it. Haven't probably checked on it for about a decade now though. I've played the Japanese version since then through emulation though. Also makes me realize I shouldn't have allowed all of my childhood friends to have a copy of my save file after doing all of that hard work and made them all go through the struggle themselves. lol

I also agree about the starchips system in the game with booster packs as suggested in the video. That would have made things so much easier. Also his claims with Summoned Skull is false. I had one and pretty sure there was a mage or two specifically you faced to get it. (of course after who knows how many duels) I can only imagine how much of my life was wasted doing free duels to get 'rare' cards.

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhKgFjJIZzU
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.

It also holds a special meaning on top of it all as well. I played it alongside my very first crush which was a girl who worked at the bookstore at the mall where the arcade was. She grabbed my hand and dragged me to the arcade when I told her I had never played DDR yet. I wasn't really nervous about the music part in public. I was more nervous of being really bad at the game in front of people. I ended up getting pretty good and played a lot during the 2000s until my health started to get worse and I became really out of shape. By then I had to travel quite some distance to get to the closest DDR cabinet as arcades completely left my area.

I last played Aura Kingdom and returned to RuneScape with OSRS. I lost my Aura Kingdom account due to inactivity, which it was pretty much a dead game and I quit playing. Then OSRS I lost my account for reasons I still don't understand and lost A LOT of GP and time that I put into the game. Anyone here who has played RuneScape knows how much of a grindfest it really is and how much time you can accumulate without realizing. I'd love to find another MMO to capture me, but I don't think that's going to happen. I've been reverting back more and more to older games. I do enjoy getting on Fightcade and doing Netplay whenever that's possible though. I know it's been forever since both of our posts. But I'm going to check out that link and listen to a bit of that album.

I'm definitely showing my age with this one here. But I still have this Batman coin bank from the cereal in a box full of toys and other various things from when I was a kid. Might be the oldest item from a cereal box I have or at least that I still have. I don't really go out to the store very much now days and I don't usually get cereal pickeed up for me any. But this makes me wonder, does cereal even still package "prizes" or anything else? I never see or hear anything about it anymore. Seems like another thing that was taken from the youth of today or just odds and ends collectors.

I think that's okay. I also didn't show much affection for my parents other than an occasional forced hug. I think that happened because I couldn't relate to them, and so I didn't want to open up my soul because I knew they wouldn't really be able understand. Sometimes my mother reproached me in lack of emotionality but ironically enough I've always considered myself to be much more emotional than her, just never really showed that. I used to think that it was just some teenage angst and that one day I'll once again be able to have warm relationships with my parents just like I did in childhood, but now I'm well past puberty and I still feel the same. But I don't regret it at all, honestly. We don't get to choose our parents, so trying to act towards them dishonestly in any way will always be vain.

No.1033

The most interesting conversations, and the most intense fights, that I've ever had were with my mother. It's the affine combinations of mental disorders we share making our conversations sprawl and focus in chaotic harmony with each other. I manage to celebrate my disorders as helping me to see what most others wont, but she got the raw end of the deal in terms of severity and nonfunctionality. When she was weaning off her selfmedication, she grew more suspicious of me, eventually accusing me of things I didn't do, of manipulating her, which was really stressful, and I started to feel like she was manipulating me. In hindsight, it was probably the withdrawal and taking time adjusting to her new chemical balance, but we're effectively estranged now. She said she feared I'd kill her before she left the last time, so I can't even do anything about it.

Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

Well, depends on what you want.
First option would be taking an existing engine and modifying it to meet your needs (for ex. this website). This can be as easy as just installing a vichan/whatever-cool-kids-use-today and changing a logo, and it can be as hard as making a major rewrite if you want to implement some weird issues.
Second option would be making a chan from scratch. This is what I did.
This is obviously pretty involved, but it is fun in some sense. I've learned (well, not really) PHP this way… Learned that vulnerabilities might happen, etc. Eventually it will pay off I think.
In both cases it is a good idea to know basic sysadmin stuff, like dealing with Linux (you're not going to pay for expensive Windows server VPS, right?), how to deal with Apache/nginx and such. I mean, you can use a hosting, but you just have more control with a VPS
Also, programming is creative in a way.

Anyway, in the end of the day you will end up with another only-admin-visits chan, because people seem to like speed of posting. This is kinda sad.

/qa/ had a 3rd party filter system that made it a 2D/random board before hiro killed that and forced the move to kissu and other spinoffs. It was nice and fun, but it was kind of weird that we were acting like this when we weren't teenagers anymore. /qa/ had an edit of that image where she was having fun again.

Those first 2 years or so on 8chan were fun as hell, everyone was trying to make their own board, IRC was popping, etc. It's sad what it became and how it ended. The webring kind of brought it back, but it didn't retain many users outside of the huge boards. But it did make anonymous imageboards much more decentralized again. It was juvenile but it was authentic and fun.
>>958
There are certain time periods on certain boards I wish I could turn into books and have with me forever. Archives make me very wistful, though and some have their own culture of ghostposting. Many suffer from spotty archives and some straight-up don't keep images to avoid legal issues.

I think you should help with and post on already existing ones rather than add another one, it will likely add another corpse to the pile of dead boards.
