  1. Keith Stetson oh I understand that impulse as well. Like, how can we be spending our time and money on something so frivolous, right? It’s a daily cycle between those tbh.

  2. I’ve been struggling with this as well. Buying new games is definitely not what I want to do right now.

    People playing games with people they’ve never met feels essential. Sometimes you need the one for the other.

  3. There’s a book by Chris Hedges called War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning. In it, he argues that we need meaning in our lives, or else they are vacuous; but we also need joy, lest we become fanatics and lose sight of what we’re striving for. Even those who think their crusade is just can become cruel and fanatical if they don’t take time to dance and smile and sing with their friends and family.

    We have meaning in our pursuit of social justice. The joy of games and friendship is what keeps is grounded. It’s not a frivolous extra, it’s necessary so we don’t lose sight of what we’re in this for.

  4. Broadly, what Christian Griffen said.

    Narrowly, while I find myself wanting games and friendship more than ever, there is only so much discretionary income to go around. I will be reexamining all of my ludic purchasing habits in favor of greater contributions to institutions that sustain and protect those who are vulnerable.
