Cleaning out my closet.

Well, its more of a room really. Been hard at doing some daily chores the last couple of days, could be because of having the last couple of them off from work. Its been delightful having the time off, especially since I’ve made a bit of progress on Traders, which I’ll discuss later.
First off, I was cleaning out a bit of a junk room. Mainly all the stuff that really didn’t fit anywhere else, old paperwork, boxes of stuff I haven’t touched in a while, extra tools and mainly my desktop computer. Any who, I stumbled upon my collection of Star Wars CCG cards. So, respectfully, I catalogued them, then did the unthinkable, I tossed out my doubles. I never really thought I could. But it really felt like I was letting go of my childhood a bit. I was okay with it. The one thing I couldn’t find was my Magic cards. I’m not entirely sure where the hell those are. Hmm… the days when Magic was simple. I can’t even remember how to play. I almost bought a few packs just to bring back some nostalgia. I woke up a bit and remembered that I wouldn’t really touch them, I wouldn’t know which ones were valuable and I’d have no one to play with. If I could find packs of the first few sets I’d buy those in a heartbeat. (Opens Google search…)
Oops, anyway, found out I played in roughly the 3rd edition era, perhaps even a little bit before that. Playing POG and Overpower as well clouds my memory. I don’t even remember how to play OP either, I just remember it was super simple and there was a Reserve character. I couldn’t find my Batman either… damn it.
Anyway, back to Traders. I’ve spent the last couple of days re-factoring it and making the game smoother. I’ve moved the players’ information to the right spot which was once occupied by the chat section. I then moved the chat to the top of the screen and can (well, will be) be opened/collapsed by pressing the ’tilde’ (~).
I’m pumped to get this game out of my hands. Soon enough, soon enough…
