Friday fun: post a selfie

We have a new off-topic group, so let's kick it off with something fun! I discovered "photo booth" on my laptop about 30 seconds ago (no, I've never had a Mac before) so here is mine:

Double selfies from me and @John Collins! And our cool little post-it note wall we're slowly creating.IMG_3185.JPG

I miss you, Austinites! However, I am guessing despite the fact that you're smiling, it's still hotter than the surface of the sun there.


I woke up like this.

The force is strong with this one…

lol that's me every day

Ann Worley Atlassian Team Aug 25, 2017

Thanks for posting that video of our morning stand-up, Andrew.

A selfie, you say?

I can do that.  


It's weekend, time to play :-)



Tonight is my games night -- I will have to show my friends this picture as they will be envious of your collection!

Last week we played Castles of Mad King Ludwig and Citadels the week before. Not sure what's on tap for tonight!

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Aug 26, 2017

That's just a small part of my collection, about a fifth or so. We played Mice and Mystics, Pandemic - Reign of Ctulhu and Scythe today.

Kevan Lin Atlassian Team Aug 28, 2017

Pandemic! I've got that On the Brink expansion and that's so much fun to play. Although I can never get enough people to play the bio-terrorist version of the game.

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Aug 28, 2017

@Kevan LinPandemic Reign of Ctulhu is a Pandemic version without a virus, but with Ctulhu monsters and cultists. It's also a great game :-)

@Thomas Schlegel we played Seasons and I crushed it by 40 points.

@Monique van den Berg Congratulations!

Don't know this game, but it looks great!

@Thomas Schlegel it is on Board Game Arena too! I like the mix of cards/drafting with dice rolling. One of my faves. 

@Kevan Lin game recommendation of the day is Terraforming Mars. Great theme, great gameplay and design, lots of fun. 

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Sep 07, 2017


Terraforming Mars is such a great game. It was the hottest new game at the board game fair in Essen last year. Everyone wanted it but it was sold out after ten minutes...

I expect it to get the "Deutsche Spielepreis" (German boardgame award) this year. If you like games, get it!

@Monique van den Berg - when will we play it? ;-)

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Sep 07, 2017

If you look at my selfie above, you can find the game! Have fun searching it!

@Thomas Schlegel are you putting it in your suitcase?? :)

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Sep 07, 2017

Hmm, no.

Maybe something else. Just wait and see :-)

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Sep 18, 2017

As predicted, Terraforming Mars was awarded "Deutscher Spielepreis 2017" today!

Hello from the road!  This was last weekend at a ranch in Dragoon, AZ.  JIRA shirt goes wherever I go!1506.jpeg

@Rachel Wright (Jira Genie), what a gorgeous place.  When I think of AZ, that's not the picture I get in my head, but clearly there's more to AZ than Flagstaff :-)

Hi@Philippe Beaudette - Before I visited Arizona the first time, I expected it to look like the Sahara desert!  Embarrassing, but true. On the way to Summit last year, I told a group of Aussies (non-Atlassians) I was from Virginia and they asked me if I was a tobacco farmer!  It got me thinking about travel misconceptions.  I wrote a quick post about it on my RV travel blog at:

What were your incorrect travel misconceptions?  See you soon!


Sorry! I was away with my family at Disneyland this weekend and unable to post this until now...

Pro Tip:  Tons of CA schools started yesterday, so it was a ghost town at Disneyland. Longest ride wait was 10 minutes or less. Mark your calendars!

We are big Disneyland people and school for us starts later so this is an excellent pro tip for next year. 


my face got flagged as spam :(

Aww. It's a nice face. And I see no ads tattooed on it anywhere.  Bad spam filter! Bad!

Carolyn French Community Champion Sep 06, 2017

Hello, hello! Almost Friday... and almost time to get on the "road" for Summit!


I just got my Summit haircut!

I got a Summit haircut too!

Seems I am a little sideways..... but why wouldn't you take a selfie with giant metal chichens? (rockon)20170529_154154.jpg

@Kimberly Deal (Columbus AUG) - This is AWESOME.  I want one now.

@Philippe Beaudette

Tractor Supply is your shop then!

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Sep 07, 2017

And an enormous home for the chicken

I hope you've all read the story of Beyoncé the giant metal chicken. (Warning: NSFW language.) 

I totally have!

Great Story - and the chicken has the same nickname as I have in some parts of California *haha*

I was thinking about that too! Hahahah!

I think Monique may already have this one (not technically a selfie I guess, but those are all rubbish)
