Well its been a month since I resurrected Wee Gamers. So why? And what are its aims?
Firstly, I decided that 2012 was going to be a gaming year for me and I wanted to reconnect with a lot of friends who I have met (and have't scared off yet!) and share.
The interweb is about sharing. Sharing ideas, what you are doing, what you hope to do and, sometimes, have a wide circle of friends and followers who don't mind coming along for the journey.
I have been gaming for 25 years now. Hold on..... I just need a moment to cry into my bag o' dice.
That should have felt better than it did. Anyway, I thought it about time to really focus myself on enjoying my free time.
I decided at the start of 2012 that I would see if I could build a community. A bit presumptuous, but I thought I would try. So, I sat down and made a list of objectives (always useful). My objectives for the year
- Rebuild it and they will come. Eventually. Maybe.
- Have at least one game a week.
- Try at least one new game a month.
- Sell stuff to fuel the gaming habit.
- Make a game. I play other peoples games, so I must inflict the same on them.
- Go to Conventions.
- Have fun on the journey.
I wanted rebuild Wee Gamers. But as what? And why would anybody come here?? Well seeing as I live on an island with a temperate climate with a precipitous nature I thought I would start there. Wee Gamers, I hope, will be used to highlight that the Irish gamer is as good as any round the world. we may seem dour and have a wicked black humour, we love gaming!
I have found gaming to have been sparse and eclectic over the past few years. That will change. Oh, Yes! I will be keeping the blog updated with my exploits (and i have such a happy month's backlog)
We all have our favourites that we come back to time and again. Like very familiar friends. So I decided that I should also branch out and so given myself the meager challenge to play at least one new game a month.
I have a day job. it pays me, but not at the level of Richard Branson. And toys are not cheap. So I will be selling stuff to give me pocket money to feed the habit.
Like many over the years I have half made games that get tossed to the side, to be lost forever in game design Room 101. Not this year!! I will make a game and have a few friends roped in as well. So watch this space and I hope to keep the blog updated on progress. I can hear Wizards of the Coast quaking in their boots from here. Mwahahahahaha
Online is fun. Face to face is best. Not just in gaming groups but in a mad conglomeration of geek and nerd heaven where you can meet new friends, try new games and unleash the +5 wallet of buying games you will never play but look cool.
Says it all.
