Gaming with my Girl

This is a silly little blog where a single father from Boston discusses hobby board and card games that he plays with his 5 year-old girl Natalya. Sometimes her teenage brother, Jeffrey, might even play too! And their Dad might go off on some other tangent — it may even be game related. Imagine that?

14 Gaming Resolutions for 2014:

1.) Go to more gaming nights. Many times I have to bow out of going because my live in babysitter (my son) visits his Mom. The (not-so) FLGS in my town has a game night once per month but they usually play heavy Euros which I, more often than not, tend to avoid. I'd like to go to a game night where I play more than just one game, yanno?

2.) Play more games with my daughter Natalya. Duh?

3.) Try to play more games with my son Jeffrey. He's not really into board games that much but sometimes when the mood strikes him he'll ask if we can play one. I'm not going to force him but he really is set in his ways of how he thinks video games are better and just as social as board games. Say what?

4.) I'd really, really like to try the COIN system. I am seriously looking at Cuba Libre to start with and the Fire in the Lake looks really interesting but maybe to complicated.

5.) VPG, their games don't look that exciting but I often hear how much solid solos they are. I want to try Legions of Darkness, Nemo's War and Cruel Necessity. They are all on my wish list to buy soon.

6.) There is no #6!

7.) I have to come up with a budget for gaming as it could get out of hand if I let it and, unfortunately, this is an expensive hobby we are in. See #4, #5 and #10.

8.) Later in the year I would really like to host my own gaming night every month.

9.) Try to blog more. Another no-brainer. I remember when I use to blog everyday "back-in-the-day;" back when the interwebs was all shiny and new. Ah well, in the very least I'd like to keep the posts consistent with regard to frequency even if they are silly posts like this one.

10.) I would very much like to find a way to go to GenCon. That would be awesome! I will be going to PaxEast in April even if it is only for one day. (Tickets sold out fast!)

11.) Contribute money to some charities that I support or would like to support like the Jack Vassel Memorial Fund and Games for Troops.

12.) Participate in BGG Secret Santa 2014 more than I did this year. It was so much fun taunting my target and sending out the box of loot. I cannot wait to do it again. I also participated in PnP Secret Santa and I hope to do that again as well.

13.) I should trade out the games I no longer want. They just take up space but sometimes it's just hard to let go. (like my sleeved LotR:LCG core set that is virtually brand new)

14.) Try to make some headway with the game designs I am currently working on. I've mothballed 3 designs already because they didn't work. I would like to enter the 2014 PnP contest next year or maybe even the 54 Card Challenge. We shall see.

And that is all. Happy New Year!

Viel Spaß!
