Tumbleweed Mark 2

So I've not written anything here for a while and whilst part of me feels bad, overall I don't really feel like I've missed it.

I've been really busy with game related stuff and also with work so not really had the time nor the impetus to post much.  The topics I set out in the turn of the year post are still ones I want to cover and hope to get to in due course but there's a general feeling of "we're done" with the primary objective of the blog i.e. chart the journey of re-discovering my hobby. I think I'm pretty much there now.

Ok so there are things I still want to do with my hobby and the Wheaton maxim of playing more games is part of it but the original reasoning for creating the blog was to chart that journey of re-discovery.

Through that journey I've found that board and card games are where I'm at and whilst other formats are still important to me I don't feel the need to plough ahead with doing more of those whereas the desire to play more board and card games remains.

With East Neuk Tabletop about to celebrate it's 1st Birthday this weekend coming and with recent exploits of promoting board games in schools I think I'm pretty much there with what I wanted to achieve with the blog.

So there comes a question - what's next?

I could mothball it until that impetus returns.

I dunno.
Rethink the core objective?
Well I know what I don't want this blog to be, trouble I don't know what I DO want this blog to be...

Let's see what happens.

Games aren’t just for kids, but should be for them too.

So I've been busy the past couple of months which has resulted in no updates to this blog (ironically another post to come on that).

What have I been busy with? Well it turns out one of my planned themes for a post (this post's title) turned out to be the cornerstone of a project I've helped launch.

So I'm skipping over the planned 2nd topic and jumping to this one as it's very real right now.

What am I babbling about?  This.

There are a couple of mis-quotes in the article but all in all it's a great thing to see this sort of event, coverage and project being given the attention it is.  Fantastic day and very proud to be a part of making it happen.
