Photo Friday And A Magic Quest

Each year I try to add something new to the blog (for as long as I can keep it going).  This year I want to do a little bit more photography and so I’m going to start up “Photo Friday.”  This will feature one new photo each week to get me back in the swing of things. Last Friday, I inadvertently started it so I’m going to try to keep it going.

Victory And Happy New Year!

It was a long fight and it had some assistance from my kids this morning, and my wife later in the day, but I pulled through and completed 100 unique game plays over the year.

Winter House Con And The Final Countdown

As 2018 quickly draws to a close, my game group decided to get a last game day in.  We started at about 8:30 am at Reese’s and went all day, with the last of us leaving shortly before midnight.  It was great, it was epic, and as always, a fun time with friends.  I don’t know if we can make this a tradition but it seems like a great way to close out the year.

Challenging Year

With 2018 coming to a close, I’m taking a look at my yearly challenges and, well, they don’t look good.  The first one where I try to get through 100 games of a single game is going to fall woefully short.  I’ll dive into the whys and wherefores after year’s end but getting more games of Walking Dead in before the end of the year won’t happen so even though it was abandoned long ago, I’ll officially admit defeat.

Half Year Game Challenge Report

So it is now July and that means I’m halfway through my game challenges so it is time to check in with how I’m doing.

For my “1×100” challenge, where I aim to play at least 100 different games at least one time, I’m doing pretty well.  58 total unique games so far for the year means I’m beating the average.  CabinCon is always a good time to hit a wide variety of games and it did not disappoint.  On the other challenge, however, I’m obviously struggling.

2018 Game Challenge Update: 10 Weeks In

We just past the 10th week of the year and I thought it’d be a good time to take stock of the game challenges I had planned for the year.  At this point, I’ll be on track or beating the curve if I’m 20 or more games into my respective challenges.

So let’s see how I’m doing, beginning with part 1, my 100 games of the Duke challenge.
