After a year and a half, and all of my close gaming circle now having been vaccinated, I've got my gaming career more or less "back on track." So naturally, it seemed like a good time to actually update this blog with what I've been into lately. I'm going to try and do this once a month or so (hah laugh ).

Dungeons & Dragons - my neighbor got me back into D&D after a 20-year hiatus. The plan was to just play with him and his kids at first, but I slid right back to where I was 20 years ago, and it's been glorious. Thanks to Roll20 and Discord, I was able to keep playing during the darkest times, and I'm very grateful for it.

I'm currently playing in a Curse of Strahd campaign, which I believe is almost over, and I'm DMing Tomb of Annihilation, which is just starting to really take off. Our group has future campaigns in mind as well, and we're looking at other systems as well (Call of Cthulhu, Star Wars, and The Expanse immediately come to mind).

BattleTech - a game I've been interested in for decades, and I finally decided to take the plunge. I did use the Beginner Box to introduce myself and a few friends to the game. Everyone loved it, and agreed we're ready for the full game, which I managed to find at Barnes & Noble online for retail price. If you're an experienced gamer, and curious about BattleTech, you can probably skip straight to the Game Of Armored Combat, but I don't regret starting with the Beginner Box. Worst case scenario, you'll have an extra map, minis, standups, etc.

Memoir '44 - an old friend that's found new life, largely thanks to me finally acquiring a copy of the New Flight Plan expansion. That made me want to introduce this to more people, and through that, I found out the DM of my Curse of Strahd group is a HUGE Memoir fan. Now we're planning an Overlord game at some point, and I couldn't be more excited!

Other games: I have a group that regularly meets on Wednesday nights, and we've played some really fun, new-to-me games:

Mansions Of Madness
Legendary Encounters: Alien
Above and Below
Spirit Island
Dice Miner
Horrified

And some favorites of mine that we're planning to play:

Clank! and its various expansions, plus the Space! version, which I personally prefer
Cosmic Encounter
Hero Realms
Power Grid
New Frontiers

What have you been into lately? What should my friends and I check out?
