Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs – Defeat 5 Dungeon Run Bosses

Kobolds & Catacombs is a Hearthstone solo player expansion.  When the expansion was launched, it offered players the opportunity to do a Dungeon Run.  Players started with a quest called Begin a Dungeon Run.

After players completed the first quest, a new one appeared.  To complete it, players needed to “Defeat 5 Dungeon Run Bosses.”

A Timeline of the Spread of the Zika Virus

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that Zika is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes.  Sexual transmission of Zika is also possible.

People who become infected with Zika can have symptoms including mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, and malaise or headache. These symptoms typically last for 2 to 7 days. Pregnant women, or women who want to become pregnant, must make an effort to avoid becoming infected by Zika. The Zika virus is also a cause of microcephaly and Guillian Barré syndrome.

Candy Crush Saga: Savory Shores

Episode 22 of Candy Crush Saga is called Savory Shores. It features a little mermaid that looks a lot like Tiffi, the little girl in the game who goes around helping all the other characters.

Players quickly learn that these two girls are twin sisters.  They obviously aren’t identical twins.

Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs – Begin a Dungeon Run Quest

Kobolds & Catacombs is a Hearthstone expansion.  Like the previous expansions, it was designed for solo players.  Kobolds & Catacombs went live on December 7, 2017 (in the Americas Region), and December 8, 2017 (in the Asia Region and the Europe Region).

A free Dungeon Run started the moment the expansion was launched.  The Dungeon Run was only meant to last for a limited time, and ended on January 15, 2017 (in the Americas). I was unable to complete the entire Dungeon Run, but still found it to be fun.  I hope they bring it back sometime.

Smokey Sky – Episode 032

In this episode, I read a piece of writing that I wrote on December 12, 2017, about things that happened a few days before.  California was on fire (again) and things got surreal.

I read “Smokey Sky” in episode 32 of Words of Jen.
