What's Next (year)?
Random thoughts about gaming in 2009 (as we wrap up 2008):
Now that Nathan Winchester is hooked, maybe we can start a regular sort of two-player game thing - maybe C&C:Ancients, or some of the longer two player games - Hannibal, Twilight Struggle, etc Hopefully Le Havre will arrive and I'll get to play it :) Will 2009 be the year I'll finally get to play Die Macher? Probably. Dion is always pushing it. Looking forward to the Geekway 2009 edition. Of course, its only a couple days, and of course I want to play like 5 epic games already... I really need to find more excuses to post pictures of The Fonz I kind of liked keeping track of trades, the games I acquired, and my plays in 2008 - but as the end of the year approached, I found I've been lazy. I won't be doing the same thing in 2009. Maybe its enough to just blog the playings and record them on the BGG. I promised to teach my son Heroquest when he gets through with Kindergarten, so maybe I should read the rules so I know how to play. I got through a pretty good number of my un-played games this last year. Hopefully I can keep cutting that number down in 2009. Its helped, because I finally got rid of some things that I really didn't need to keep. Some others that are on the fence that need to get tried so I can decide to keep them or cut them: Magna Grecia, Lost Valley, Mare Norstrum, Scepter of Zavandor, Think I'm going to thin my "owned" list to take out the kids games. I'll still put comments on them as to appropriateness and record a play or something, but there is no need to clutter my collection with their kiddie games. My kiddie games are staying :) Get another game shelf - I'm full and need more space. Even if I clear out stuff, I'm full and need more space. What will I do when my room is actually full? Play some more: Age of Steam, Indonesia, A Game of Thrones,
