Welcome to ‘love & death inc’ Issue 1 Genesis

“I was once told to try and not take things so seriously, embrace a little humour in my life; for through my stubborn folly I have come to accept and understand, that without laughter and sharing experiences there is little point to anything - Thank you all! Live life abundantly, for what it is life but love and death.” - Soda

How things come to be... “A poet once said, ‘The whole universe is in a glass of wine.’ We will probably never know in what sense he meant it, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass of wine closely enough we see the entire universe. There are the things of physics: the twisting liquid which evaporates depending on the wind and weather, the reflection in the glass; and our imagination adds atoms. The glass is a distillation of the earth’s rocks, and in its composition we see the secrets of the universe’s age, and the evolution of stars. What strange array of chemicals are in the wine? How did they come to be? There are the ferments, the enzymes, the substrates, and the products. There in wine is found the great generalization; all life is fermentation. Nobody can discover the chemistry of wine without discovering, as did Louis Pasteur, the cause of much disease. How vivid is the claret, pressing its existence into the consciousness that watches it! If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this glass of wine, this universe, into parts -- physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on -- remember that nature does not know it! So let us put it all back together, not forgetting ultimately what it is for. Let it give us one more final pleasure; drink it and forget it all!”

6 4 3 Rules of the Game:

1. Request all the materials form your server or bartender (£5 deposit per game up to 6 players). Shots listed at the end. 2. Understand the goal of the game. The aim of the game is to be the first player to reach the end by moving across the board from square 1 to square 100. You will travel the board from base to top, right, then left and so on. 3. Determining who goes first. Rolling the dice twice, the person with the highest combined roll starts first. The person with the second highest goes 2nd and so on. BUT DO NOT MOVE THE COUNTER. 4. Commence playing. The first player to roll a 6 can enter the board. Each subsequent player must also throw a 6 to enter the board. The dice must be rolled again to show the number of squares that the player entering the board may move initially. Place the marker on the appropriate square. Each player may only roll once. 5. Continue playing: a. Snake: if a player lands at the tip of the snake’s head, his or her marker slides down to the




square at the snake’s tail and they must drink the relevant shot :) On doing so they must replenish the relevant shot taken for the next turn, each player can only consume the same shot once. b. Ladder: if a player lands on a square that is at the base of a ladder, his or her marker moves to the square at the top of the ladder and continues from there. c. One person one square: when landing on a square that is already occupied by another player’s marker, the player already on the square is moved back to the beginning and must throw a 6 to re-enter the game. 6. Complete the game. The first player to square 100 is the winner but you must have the correct number on the dice to land on the 100 mark. The last person to win must buy everyone a drink of their choice – its the rules!
