I have a few for sale, pre-release. Anyone interested, PM me.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Last night at the Monday club, @Rich and I had a couple of games of ComBones, and a good game of KEN.
Also, I recorded this:

Hey @KenSan , those are great. Love the base cup to aero in particular, going to try that now.

Regards the lunar flip, don't worry, spikes are overrated ;)

Oh, and today I . . . started today like this and realised all days should start this way then went on to get a rather pleasing Bird > Nod Off > Nod to Spike (as opposed to Nod On) and generally practiced developing my flow play.

Nice one guys. @KenSan , after watching that first one, I was going to say "Hey, you should try the latest Endless Combo!", but then I realised you need to wait a few more rounds to be allowed back in. (*cough* Kev *cough*)

@Kev Sounds good, but I'm not sure I can quite picture Nod To Spike from Big Cup... Hmmmm.... Maybe it really is possible.....

It really is possible! I did it!

I was a bit surprised myself as was going for the nod from big cup to bird but the positioning of the hole made it roll right on to the spike, never losing contact.

The dama in question has a relatively short spike though. Doubt it's doable on a lunar magnet.

Today, just before my hands got too cold to carry on, I got a trick I've been trying for a while now. On camera, but it's too long for IG or Twitter, and a bit dark, so I'll have to work some pixel magic on it before you can all see it.... :)

Cheers @The Void and @Kev

Kev be careful with the two turn aero as if you throw to far away from yourself and then grab the tama you'll get the ken (yank fashion) coming towards your head pretty quick!  :o

This morning I managed to hit infinity slinger - spacewalk - handroll - swing in.  The shortened string from the 'slinger makes all the rest happen extra fast; barely had time to enjoy it before it was on the spike :) !

Today I jammed with the Berlin crew, had some great lines during KEN, was quite proud of Aero > Build LH > Lunar > Half Rover > In. Also had a race with Kentaro to land Stunt Plane > Reverse Jumping Stick (1,5 Turn) Fast Hand Stab, took us about an hour to get that one. Landed a double UFO first try on demand, and even managed a line I've been thinking of for ages: Aero > Jumping Stick  into Lunar > Lunar Flip > Half Rover > Inward Lunar Flip > In. All in all a few very nice birthday presents!
