I am happy for: We are one the next level. Thomas got an idea to split the old structure of card game, deconstruct it in a way, that makes the game easier, funnier, more encouraging, more attractive for youngsters. But! the main principles – educational and strategic – remain.
So, after a month or more silence, we finally visualize new concept and here it is.
What makes me anxious:
We both work from distance. For somebody probably it does not make a sense, but I have found out to me it does, actually.
We have the moment now, when I am the one suppose to push and work as Thomas works on his first book. He even suggests to stop or destroy this project. We cannot do this!
The only thing I need is a motivation.
As a big fan of wine, I have tried my first beer at my 25 because of my company. We – classmates used to go to our fav places, experiencing crazy basketball Lithuanian fans around, having talks on every possible topic a human being can think about, meeting important days of our lives together, listening live music, dancing till we could stand… This was a year ago.
We all five come from different countries and nowadays spread around Lithuania, Latvia, Serbia, Czech Republic.
Just yesterday I have arrived in Lithuania, met with my classmate and his nicest roommate, had a very long talk full of new stories that I appreciate so much!
My classmate loves travelling but he is more patriotic. Would like to have stability, settle down, searching for a job.
Then we started speaking what we do, how do we do, all about future…
I was heading a long, 22h, route. Happily, no one was sitting next to me. I occupied double seats and picked a movie played by my favourite lady – Julia Roberts.
(Btw, just a few days ago PEOPLE’s nominated her as 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman – I should say, intellectual and beautiful lady).
Suddenly she decides she does not want anymore the situation (good job, husband, friends, relatives) she is in and leaves everything. I was watching and thinking ‘this is me! This is so me!’
And now back to the conversation – I said I want to be free. He tried to assure me that I must have responsibilities. But does this two suspend each other?
One day or another I will disconnect to a very exotic place, meditate, do yoga, learn a new language, see something that makes me impressed (definitely not fancy shopping centers, high/beautiful buildings).
Oh, and what’s the most important – I know where I should leave.
But now, I am leaving to nearby for praying and eating. And the last one… does not exist. Do you have your version?
Time is ticking, passing, running.
We keep unfaltering working. However, our enthusiasm only is not enough to reach the goal!
We are almost one a very final stage – searching colours, shapes for ENGO (You know, we have found the words a long long time ago). How much time and energy does it take? Well, we do not count anything for our beloved ones, do we? Same here!
And finally! Here is a prototype for ENGO.
We might make some cosmetic changes there. Here you can see the basics.
We have a super great news we should share with you.
We have organised the first testing game to the wider audience in Lille, France. Five amazing players joined the round of 90 minutes. The game has been easy to learn and joyful to play. Every person stood for their playing style. Diplomacy, culture and military flourished.
We have got the feedback and comments from players – thank you guys for your effort!
