A couple of days early with this but I’ve begun to think about next year.
The big challenge I’m setting myself is not buying any games or backing kickstarters in 2021. I have my birthday and Christmas to receive presents and I’ll keep trading, but no purchases. Over the last 18 months I’ve developed FOMO to a huge extent and it’s not healthy.
I’m not going to do a 10x10 in 2021. Too many of my favourite games or my new acquisitions play best at 3 or 4. I don’t want to force poor experiences with a lower than that play count. I also don’t want to hold myself hostage to fortune with Covid. I’m going to do something like a 30x3 to get everything new played and contrast to what we love to work out what’s worth keeping around.
Which leads to; play a game with friends in person indoors. It’s up to Government and society as much as us to make that happen but hopefully from May/ June it could happen. If I may be so bold, hopefully some of that in person gaming may involve some people from here??
I’d like to really explore an RPG campaign. Hopefully Enfys will start rolling higher than a 6 and I’ll be able to get out of the cave she’s stuck in with Ash and Ssora!
To continue exploring online gaming with real life friends and with lots of you guys. @lalunaverde’s suggestion of a group on TTS to tackle Spirit Island sounded great.
To attend a con. Unfortunately Rules Con in Cardiff is usually April and UK Expo is May so we’ll see about that!
To find the next game we’ll devour as a family of 4 (The Crew, Gloomhaven JOTL and The King’s Dilemma were all flown through in a lockdown fueled craze this year). I suspect/ hope Imperial Assault will be the game.
To crack 300 (250 to be realistic) on Doppelt so Clever.
I think the last one flows on from 2020. I’ve recognised how much gaming means to me. Playing games is great for my mental health, the social aspect as much as the brain working bit. It’s also a great barometer of my state of mind - if I’m chomping at the bit to play heavy stuff then I know I’m probably ok. So to keep wanting to play games, new and old.
