    To those who are now needing to deal with "self isolation"

    Hey everyone,

    I know a lot of you around the world are now needing to enter into what we have termed "self isolation".

    While in some ways, perhaps this is a great opportunity to play more of our favorite game, the toils of self isolation is definitely difficult to deal with long term.

    I am a Canadian Expat living in Guangzhou, China and have been now under this self isolation with my wife and two young sons for 68 days and counting.

    I actually discovered LOTB during my isolation time and it has honestly made dealing with this a lot easier for me, something to grind away at and get my mind off of this crazy situation.

    Two days ago, I wrote a long post on Facebook about my story. I wrote it as a message of inspiration for my friends and family back home in Canada who are now starting to go through what I have been. It has received a surprising amount of shares and feedback, all very positive.

    Decided to throw the link to it on here, perhaps some of you will find it interesting or inspiring.

    Feel free to check it out and share it if you find that it is something others you know will enjoy or find interesting/useful/inspiring.

    Please do not turn this post on the forums into any form of argument about COVID19 and such. That is not what the post is about. It is merely about the ordeal of "self isolation" and how my story played out.

    Anyhow, be safe and good luck and to all the team at Nodding Frog, thank you for this game, you had such a huge impact on saving my sanity for the last few months.

    Up the Irons!

    Hi!

    I enjoyed reading your story.

    Being in a country that is bordering Italy, that has surpassed China by more than 100% deaths (and counting...) I can correlate.

    We too are in quarantine and aren't leaving our homes and try working from home.

    So far, the numbers (400/1/16 C/D/R) in my country are moderate but we have started experiencing strong exponential growth and have prepared sports arenas to take in future patients.

    Recent 5.5R earthquake didn't help too \m/, so we forcibly came closer to each other in front of shaking building than we would like, given SARS-Cov-2 likes social contact.

    I trust I will get to experience similar things as you and your family (girls here) and that the virus will go away.

    This here is a good community. Welcome once more and thanks for sharing!
