More gaming geekiness

So, this blog post is late, and the reason for that is because I just couldn’t come up with something to talk about.

Here’s what’s happening with me. I’ve been kind of distracted from writing since this weekend. Hyphen-Con, the gaming event I went to, has, as it does every year, re-kindled my love of gaming. Role-playing games, card games, board games, video games. I just love games. Hell, even in the Renaissance Guild I belong to, my job is to teach people about period games.

So, right now, I’m pretty geeked out about games, and especially about some new ones I’ve discovered at Con, such as In A Wicked Age and Fiasco (thought I never played Fiasco). These games are a big departure from the standard type of game I played in the past, but they all look like great fun. And I just want to play.

I would love to have a regular game, maybe once a month. I’m just not sure I could put much effort into it. In the past, I was always the game master. I think if I got into a game, it would have to be one where I didn’t have to do a lot of prep work, or one where I was a gamer.

But, right now, it just seems like a lot of work. So, I’m not sure. But whatever, I would sure love to play again.

And, of course, I still need to and want to write. It’s like an imperative. I can’t skip writing for more than a few days before I start to wig out. And so, I will continue to write.

But, that’s pretty much where my mind is at right now. Just thought I would share.


  1. I miss those mini-cons. So, you're not gaming at all? We have a bi-weekly D&D game. Three couples with kids all around the same age. It's kind of weird, compared to the FUBAR days. :)

  2. Nope, no gaming at all right now. Kind of sad. But, it's been tough to find the time.

  3. I know that feeling! We weren't even able to find the time to play a solo-adventure between the two of us. This life thing really puts a cramp in one's gaming time.

  4. I moved away from my gaming group a few years ago. We tried to play online but I was always the DM and time was something I didn't have (wife and 3 kids). I always liked to do prep work (my group liked doing random things at random times) and haven't found a lot of time for it. We haven't played in about a year and I miss it too.
