I started this website in January as a new years resolution to be able to be more active and contribute to the board game community. And like how many of these resolutions can go – it can trail off. Postings here started to die down the summer and after Origins. I had lofty goals and while contributing to this blog was a big priority, my goal of being part of the community has been gifted to me faster than I could have ever imagined.
Here are some large milestones I accomplished:
- A few weeks after starting the blog – I ended up being in contact with Leder Games and now I volunteer as a play tester and helped man the Leder Games booth at Con of the North and Origins in Ohio.
- In March of this year, I met Jacob (@TheGamerCurator) on Twitter and we started the Rolling Doubles Podcast where we are 11 episodes strong!
- I submitted my board game design to a competition. While it didn’t move forward in the competition. I felt a great sense of accomplishment. From that design, it has been iterated to the point where it has evolved into something something even better.
Rolling Doubles is going to be my primary focus. At this time, I am hoping to re-purpose this site towards a landing page for my game designs when it comes time to have them be in the limelight. There is still a lot of work to be done with them but I’m in a scenario that allows me to work on them at my leisure.
Until then, please check out my podcast with episodes coming out every two weeks. Thanks!
