The Barren Desert of Gaming

So a quick call out on the number of posts recently before I delve into more gaming posts. Live has been crazy of late. Been dealing with a series of flus and colds combined with being totally mentally burnt out in general, likely from recovering from said flus and colds. This has combined with a lack of gaming of late. Seems that my entire group has the same burn out. Been no roleplaying or table top gaming in the last couple of months.

I find there are often periods of gaming where it’s gaming all day everyday, well as much as adult life allows. And that is juxtaposed against the periods of no gaming what-so-ever.

This has been one of those times.

I’m reading through the Runequest 6 rules, which is taking some time due to the lack of energy. I’ll be running a game in the next couple of weeks. This will be replacing my D&D 5th game which came to a close when I grew sick of the system. I’m really done with D20 style games including all D&D variants and Pathfinder. I’ll likely post about my reasons at some point.

Anyway, I hope my returning energy continues so I have the umpf to get some more gaming going. I’m unfortunately the only driving force for table top games and GMing in my group, so when I’m done, gaming grinds to a halt.

The last couple of weeks we played some board games including Catan, Terra Mystica and Eclipse. All very good games. If anyone wants a review on one of them let me know. I’ll likely review them eventually, but if there is a specific request I’ll get to it sooner.

Hope everyone is getting in more gaming than me!

  1. Everyone gets busy from time to time! Your batreps are great but not at the expense of burning out! Also I’d be curious of your review of Eclipse, and how you think more “casual” gaming groups would take to it.


    • Thanks JMHahn! I want to do more batreps, but need to be playing some Firestorm to do them! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I was thinking about doing some general tactic posts – setting up chess-like scenarios and how to deal with them. Not sure how useful that would be.

      I’ll aim to do an Eclipse review for you! It’s a great game ๐Ÿ™‚
