Ok, so this is weird, probably really weird, but I recently got into the painted rock scavenger hunt in my area and have been having fun biking and hunting the woodland trails of my local community for rock gems. I have found some really cool rocks that I have added to my collection. Some I keep, and others I re-hide, but recently I came across a piece of a tree that had been sawed into a thick slice. I noticed that someone had used a chainsaw to cut criss cross lines across the top of the tree trunk that was left behind.
Being a lover of games, I decided to drag the large piece of wood home with me and used my wood burner to burn some solid lines into the top and then went out in search of round rocks which I painted with X and O’s and created a rustic, natural tic tac toe game that now sits on my front porch.
I know it’s weird, but the pandemic has ignited my creativity beyond art, writing and cooking, and now I’m thinking outside of the box, or in this case, outside of the rock.
Whatever you’re into, games, biking, hiking, creating, do something kind of crazy, you might just rock it!
I love the combination of mindful/mindless activities with the mix of strategic fun. Is it possible to have both? Yes it is! Tim and I continue creating new games and Zencala is one of our newest creations. We custom make board games, which are made out of solid oak or poplar wood. Choose your colors and prepare to have hours of zenful fun as there are over 100 ways to play!
We just launched our newest game, Zencala! It is a new take on an ancient game with over 100 ways to play! Currently available in solid Popular or Oak wood and can be costumed stained in your chosen colors. Hours of zen fun!

This stickers is from the 1970s. Remember when everyone was called a “Turkey”? LOL
Excited to share that Tomorrow River Publishing has now created 3 new games: one for kids (My Dice), one for adults to get dirt on each other (Dr. Davenport’s Dirty Dice) and one for teachers and counselors (Therapy Cubes).
