With my Gen Con days concluded, I only have a quick wrap-up of some final thoughts and this year’s spoils.
Our annual gaming retreat happened last weekend and it marks the sixth year we’ve gotten together. This year we had five in attendance: Jeremy, Sterling, Colton, Reese, and myself. Reese, Colton, and I got there a little early so we hit a few games until Sterling arrived and then decided to take a break with a walk around the lake.
This walk proved interesting as it was almost dusk and accidentally ran into the dynamic mommy + baby moosen in a fun little encounter. The shot above was taken on the last day of the trip as the two decided to take a stroll down to the lake. As you can see, they pretty much own the road and when we met them at night during our first trek, we didn’t realize this fact.
The good news is every game on my list has been played at least once. Even better news is I’m sitting at 20 games/sessions played out of 36 for the challenge so I’m beating the curve by a good 5%. Let’s look at the details:
I recently spent some time painting up something besides my black and white Walking Dead collection (shocking, I know). I talked earlier about receiving Championship Formula Racing (CFR) and my 1976 F1 cars from Shapeways and I decided to start painting them up.
I recently popped over to Sean’s Gaming and Shooting Blog, a fellow Walking Dead: All Out War fan, to check out some of his painting techniques and stumbled across an end of the year post about yearly game challenges. Sean was pulling this from a post he saw at The Stronghold Rebuilt.

You may change entries on the list during the year, but game-plays for games you drop should no longer count towards the challenge.(ii) To start the challenge, post the link to your blog.(iii) You commit to play each of your six chosen games at least six times during the course of 2017.(iv) When you play a game in your challenge list, record the play in your blog. This record can range from a one line acknowledgment to a full blow-by-blow report.
