One Year of Games . . .

Yes, this is not a review. I'm sorry, normal reviews should resume next week.


For the past month, I've been distracted by, well, a variety of things both internal and external. It's made it hard to prioritize writing about board games, frankly. And while I've really enjoyed writing these reviews for the past six months or so, I had another project taking my focus. And that project ties into why I started this review blog in the first place.


Let's start at the beginning. Back in 2014, I decided to try something. I began making a note of every game I played, starting with the games I played at WBC 2014, and continuing for a full year. I logged every play on Boardgamegeek.com. And then, after a year had passed, I found myself staring at the data and wondering if there was something I could do with it. I ended up creating a "Geeklist," where I wrote a few words about each games. It was nice to get my thoughts down on which games I liked, which I didn't, and why.


And then I stuck with it. I've continued recording my games since 2014 (2,323 plays and counting!) and writing an annual retrospective. Last year, I wrote a TON about each game. So much, in fact, that I decided to start doing actual reviews of the games. Hence this blog. And now that I have this blog, I don't need to write full reviews of every game I played this year. Instead, it's just a quick snapshot of my thoughts about each game.


If you're interested in seeing what games I've actually been playing this past year, why not check out this year's Geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/272183/games-i-played-and-assorted-thoughts-june-1-2019-m


That's it for this week. Next week, normal reviews resume, I promise!
