It has been a little while; I’ve been getting tons of gaming in (Thanks, BGG.Spring) and have come to realize a few things about my 10 x 10 list:
There were some games that were unattainable. I probably could have forced people to play them with me but that wouldn’t have been much fun. So, I did what any
cheating sane person would do and I tweaked my list.
I added Ganz schon clever, which is a roll and write game I played at BGG.Spring and absolutely loved as well as D-Day Dice, which my wife and I played tonight for the first time in about 4 years (It had left a bitter taste in my mouth due to some further Kickstarter issues from the publisher [and that’s putting it lightly]). I have a much better chance to play games I enjoy instead of trying to fit longer games into our busy gaming schedule.
Speaking of busy gaming schedule, you probably have noticed that I don’t post very consistently. Between a toddler, work, and actually playing games, sometimes it’s hard to write. So I am enlisting the help of a friend, Ryan Olson. Ryan is going to join me in writing here at Sword Board and Pen. He has a different viewpoint on gaming than I do, so I think you’ll get a wider approach to content. Look for an introductory post from him in the coming days.
We are also going to try to stick to a Wednesday/Friday posting schedule. So you’ll get reviews, personal posts, month in review posts, as well as some special things we want to try out, just to give our thoughts on gaming.
If you’ve stuck with me for this long, thanks! I think you are going to enjoy what we have planned. And if you are new here, welcome! I hope you stay a while.
