Etsomnia™ 281: Bored* Games

2 Comments

*Misspelling intentional

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

As I’m writing this, the damp, uninspiring remnants of Hurricane Laura are dribbling by outside. It feels like a good day to stay inside and play games. Which leads me to this week’s Etsomnia™ theme of games on Etsy. There were profoundly weird and uncomfortable games, both new and old, and a lot of beautiful accessories for games I’ve never heard of and will never play.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!
