I resolve to spend more time teaching strategy to new players.

Whether a potential new gamer gets hooked depends a lot on his or her early experiences. A person who feels completely lost and run over by experienced players is much less likely to play again compared to person who feels like they were starting to "get it." Accordingly, I resolve to point out basic strategy when explaining rules and to tactfully discuss the merits of particular options with new players during games and immediately afterwards.

Play more 18XX next year.

For a variety of disappointingly human reasons I'd pretty much stopped playing 18XX this year. Last week we got 1825 Unit 1 back on the table. It was great. Next year I'd like to get back to a base level of around 30 18XX plays in the year.

Play fewer games more often.

I'd like to play less games more often. I'm a little tired of playing new (to me) games only to find that they don't meet my standards. This year I'd like to focus on being more exacting that new games must be convincingly better than an old familiar game before I play them.

Get 'Ohana Proa signed for publication. Possibly also get Age of Steam: Central America, Denmark, Isle of Wight, Wales, South-East Australia all signed as well (they're all ready).

I know if I don't keep moving on these I'll simply forget them as my interest and focus moves on.

Get better at a game that I already play.

I'd love to be able to get 1d by the end of next year, but realistically I can go for low kyu status (under 5).

I resolve to write reviews of some of the really, really old games in my collection that are feeling rather lonely here on the 'Geek. I have a list of my games, and number of reviews on the 'Geek for each game, which I update irregularly. I see a lot of ZEROs under reviews for a lot of these old games, so I think I really ought to do this.

For the sake of all those old-game hoarders out there like, um, me.
