If summoning a demon while pretending to be an Avesti (a fanatical religious sect in Fading Suns RPG) or slaughtering your enemy by falling from the ceiling as Bat Dwarf in D&D is your jam, here's a way to social distance and geek out at the same time.

Brian and I played Ticket to Ride with his coworkers at CodeCombat on Friday. Grab Tabletop Simulator from Steam and open a Zoom chat. Someone will have to be the GM and invite the others but you can play a variety of games.

I found Morning MeditOcean on Monterey Bay Aquarium's Facebook page . What a great way to start your day!
