Board games are a good way to challenge your self

I played Herbaceous and Merchants for the first time. I won herbaceous, well first equal, and did really badly on merchants because I wasn’t sure how to win, but I learned quite a lot, and even got a bit of confidence back too. Been doubting my intelligence recently, but have bounced back admirably. I wonder if it’s the fact I won that added to it, or that some of the decisions made turned out to be good, or that I picked up the games pretty fast. Either way, it was an interesting time!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
