The High Points of 2011
The biggest highlight this year was the rebirth of this blog and the general rebirth of my miniature gaming hobby. For about three years I was in "maintenance mode" and not doing much. Actually I was playing World of Warcraft in all my free time. I saved a ton of money, though. Being "reborn" in miniatures gaming means you just lost a few bills to get caught up on everything.
A few happy things I didn't expect going into the year:
- My wife letting me take over the front room and drop a gaming table into it. Pure win.
- Building up three 28mm WWII armies over the summer. Gotta remember how I did that.
- Discovering a love for smaller games and non-GW games like Song of Blades and Heroes and a bunch of the THW games like Nuts!
- Not burning out by July
The Low Points of 2011
Nothing really was a low point. There were a few duds this year:
- Infinity: Everyone's absolute favorite most best-est game of all time. For three days.
- Heavy Gear: Blitz: A classic game beloved of fans. Starter set includes two rule books: one that advises you to ignore the other rule book included with the starter set. That should be a sign of something. Starter set was missing parts for three models and assembly of the other models has given me a nervous twitch.
- World War I: At least I liked the rule books and they were on sale.
This section is here because I thought ending the post after "low points" was too abrupt. I don't have many other thoughts. I enjoyed the year, got in lots of games with good friends, and found my own gaming preferences. Also, I was not maimed or diagnosed with a horrible disease. Overall, this was a good year.
Here's looking forward to a wonderful 2012! Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog this year. I especially appreciate those who left comments. I look forward to reading what people have to say. Let's do it again next year.
