Read it and Weep

Aug 8, 2014

Do you like magic? How about realism? How about combining them into a 32+ hour slog for no apparent reason? That's Mark Helprin's novel Winter's Tale.

It's the turn of the century (both of them) in New York (but not really) and a burglar/time traveler has to fall in love and stop a bridge from being built and also ride his magic horse to victory against a time traveling gang. Also a ton of other stuff happens and none of it matters because there's not really an ending. And somebody is a metaphor for Jesus.

We do our best to break down all the hidden meaning in our new game Symbol Crash (sponsored by Zildjan [but not really]).
