Welcome to 2014.
I have plans and plans and plans for this year - let's see how many of them I can pull off, shall we?
I also have a sizable package of new games that I should have before you see this post. With a little bit of luck, I'll have played them last night.
I've seen rules for a fair number of games, and I have information on a fair number more. I'm not going to say I haven't seen a few that aren't to my liking, but - for the most part - the games I've seen have been strong contenders.
If this year lives up to what I've seen so far, it's going to be a good one.
Thank you all - again - for continuing to read my scrawlings from this corner of the internet.
And, for those of you who are new, here? I'm Eric. I am often part of Asmodee's localization team, and am nearly always part of their demo team. My wife helps with both, and I am a very lucky man.
I like games where skill beats luck more often than the other way around, but I'm not completely luck-averse. I love Chess (and its traditional regional variants), but I'm not very good at them. I am _really_ bad at dexterity games, but I love some of them.
I host a weekly game gathering at Phoenix Games in Mukilteo, Washington. Every Wednesday, we gather and play, and we generally have between twelve and thirty folks turn up. The group has been together for more than ten years, now - since before Brian opened Phoenix Games, in fact.
My primary non-gaming hobbies are photography and snarking. I have a weakness for classic cameras, and have cameras that take five or six different formats of film. And by "take," I mean "require." It means my film cabinet is ... diverse. And hardcore photography geeks like spending time with me because I like using the cameras (and letting my trusted friends snap a few shots here and there).
This blog updates on Wednesdays and is focused on non-collectible analog gaming. And - more and more frequently - my experiences with Kickstarter.
