X-BOARDS

(I came up with this when I was eleven years old)

For bored individuals, younger or older, who have dice and want something basic and don’t feel like learning something like Dungeons & Dragons right now. This can be played by one or multiple players.

You can make your own boards with paper, a set of wood, chalk and stones, or probably many other mediums your imagination can allow. There will be a full game worth of premade levels further down this page as well as others in printable format. There will also be single themed boards with themes like certain cartoons, etc.

In the future I will make also a printable game with differing cards having rules specific to turns where one player builds a level for others to play using guidelines.

So how do you play?

Well there is a start, and there is a finish. In the middle are two types of spaces, a blank space, and an X. The blank spaces are safe while the X’s mean basically “return to start.” The more X’s you place, the harder it is. Standard amount of spaces would probably be around 30. If there are multiple levels in a premade game, then once you pass level 1, you reach level 2 and never have to return to level 1 unless you choose to start over, or you beat the final level.

If you would like a premade board game, try Frustration!

CHILDHOOD CASSETTES
These are just a couple of the tapes I made way back when I was 10-12. These are the rap tapes, because I decided those would be the most funny and embarassing to share. I called myself MC Posse, obviously not knowing what a posse was, because there was just me. I had an unknown keyboard (I don’t remember) that was a Yamaha at least, and rapped. If you hear more than one voice, I played what was recorded so far on the stereo and added to it with the boombox. Unfortunately I was born in 1981 and didn’t know of multitrack yet. I had no DJ or anything, and I was even more corny than Vanilla Ice! If you are looking for Quality recordings, look elsewhere, for I was 10. I found some vocal/rap parts while listening in that were of other actual songs. If you feel like suing my 10-year-old past self, feel free. I’m 40 now though.

Due to being recorded over and over, some of the lyrics are pretty incoherant. Also, you will hear the same music on some of these, mainly because the keyboard I used had preprogrammed music and chords for each note you hit, and I had favorites it sounds like.
