Yup thats right, just like last year I want to set aside a little corner of the BGG and write down my thoughts on what I want to accomplish in 2013...at least hobby wise.

First lets do a little recap of my 2012 Goals list;

My shopping list...I will consider this is a success. I maintained it through each month of purchases though I did deviate a bit when there was something I really wanted.
My collection size has gotten much larger...my goal was 125 and I hit that in January and now at the end of the year, I am at close to 300. Again a success!
My gaming group has expanded and has played lighter euro's. Though we didn't meet as much as I would have liked. I would again call this a success though.
My carpentry skills have gone no where this year, the Lowes gift cards we got last Christmas went to paint instead of power tools. This was a big gong show for a goal.
Yeah I started Thrifting for games...and pissed my wife off...not sure if this is a success or not though...
Halfway through the year this would have been a fail, but somewhere my two year old turned a corner and always asks to break out Loopin Louie, Candy Land, and Sorry...she doesn't really play them but she likes the pieces and moves things around.
Right now this is a fail, I didn't start making video reviews...I do have like 11 hours though...
No miniatures were painted this year...Im a little disappointed in this one as I also picked up Malifaux and a few gangs of miniatures for it.
Well I am a Patron for 2012 but it took me until today to buy it...total procrastination because there were too many games to buy.
I bought Risk: Legacy and it has sat unopened...Ill call this a halfy.
I started an online Dark Sun PbP when RPG Geek was having the little cross promotional thing...I realized I just dont have the time for it. Its a shame too because I really miss RPG's
I failed to get anything up on The game rafter but Im calling a mulligan on this one as the contract at work prevents me from self publishing.

So if anyone is taking a tally of my progress:
5/12 Completed
3/12 Kind of completed
4/12 Not done at all

Or a little over 50% complete for the year.

So lets see whats up for this year...

I will be continuing on with my "Wisdom of Crowds" shopping list...allowing you people to dictate what I buy during the course of the year. Have fun!

Ohhh, and I do try and spend a little extra to support publisher/designer thumbs to their own games...so please support your product and you might get an extra sale!

Well I am at 300 right now but I have curtailed the Thrifting a bit the last few months...I am going to say 350 since I don't plan on hitting the thrift store much this year and I figure its going to be newer games.

I also want to update this Geeklist and add more content to it.

I want my Game Group to meet more often, once a month at least and I would like to do smaller gatherings with my wife to supplement my gaming needs.

Im thinking the following:
1. Normal Game Group meets once a month.
2. Every other week my wife and I cook for a friend or two and play some games.

Im not counting on #2 but I want to make sure #1 happens.

Back to this one...well I need to build shelves since we dont have an Ikea in Las Vegas and the Expidite shelves are far to expensive to ship even though they would likely come from Phoenix or Los Angeles.

1. Shelves
2. Table

I will commit to those two for this year...I did get a circular saw, reciprocating saw, dremel, drill, jigsaw and router for Christmas. Im in good shape I think.

So another hobby I had in the past was growing Carnivorous Plants...when I moved from Phoenix to Vegas in 20101 my whole collection died and I just started getting back into it.

I want to make sure I continue to grow my collection here as well since I expect it might make me some money in the future.
