You know, a lot has changed since 2013, those dark days when my gaming life appeared to end and most of the rest of it to be unraveling. Back then, a new boss at work (not like The Who said, this one was worse, way worse), midlife crises, and lots of other stuff going on led to some difficult times. Thank goodness I discovered ice hockey, running and fitness generally. And then they offered reasonable redundancy packages at work and then me and the missus found a nice little cottage in a small country town a couple hours north of Adelaide, and ... and ... and ... and I'm sure you get the picture.
Now, all these years later as the gamer in me re-emerges, I realise that this ol' blog's title probably doesn't really reflect reality anymore. I could change the title, I could start a new blog, I could do lots of things. But I reckon I'll leave it as it is and just keep going from where I left off. Tipping my hat to my own legacy, I suppose.
So what does 2019 hold in store. Well projects in various stages of gestation include finding some opponents to play Here I Stand - Wars of the Reformation (GMT games), getting together some saxons and arthurian britons and vikings and having a go with Dux Bellorum, and getting in a game or two of Stratego - Waterloo.
Oh, and getting the library organised. I've just finished insulating a big shed out the back which is now lined with book cases, of which one shelf is stacked with games books and a couple crates of rules and scenarios and a few more crates of board games, and a few boxes of figures and scenery, etc etc etc.
We'll see how we go.
