One thing I’ve done a lot of in the last couple of years is listen to podcasts, specifically podcasts about gaming. There are a heap of them out here, and I’ve mentioned a few in the past. They tend to vary in quality and frequency, so I’ve found following a dozen or so means you get a fairly constant stream of new audio content.
Well, time sure does fly when you’re not paying attention.
Last time I posted it was October, I was following a bunch of Kickstarters and getting ready for a Kings of War tournament – my first organised play event (that I wasn’t running) in almost a decade. It’s now almost three months later, all but one of the aforementioned Kickstarters was successful, and I got to spend a day playing Kings of War. We’re also only a few hours away from the end of the year, the time when it’s traditional to look back on the year that’s been and make resolutions for the one to come.
I’m not going to follow the lead of pretty much every news outlet by making a Top/Bottom 10 list of the year’s events. Not that I’m worried about not having enough events to fill 10-20 entries, those lists are usually fairly boring and stuffed with just enough filler to get the article approved in time for the author to join the rest of the office at the staff Xmas party. Instead, I’m going to one highlight and one low-light.
