10 Years Have Passed, But None Like The Last

Hello, Dear Readers. Ten years ago today I posted my first review to this website and announced it to the world. What a long, strange trip it’s been – but no times more strange than the events of the past few months. I had planned to post a big, lighthearted article about favorite board games today, and even host a giveaway as a day of celebration, but celebrating just doesn’t seem right. Also, to be quite honest, I’m not much in the mood for celebrating right now.

Like many of you during 2020, the events around the world have done little to help with my anxiety or depression. However, the events this past week with the death of George Floyd have pushed me past a threshold. Many of you know I don’t particularly like mixing politics with my board game talk. Board games should be a welcome escape, a place where we can all join together as friends and try and forget the troubles of everyday life. But life right now can’t be ignored. Saving lives can’t be ignored.

I have to believe that some day we will celebrate. I have to believe that some day we will play games together again. And I have to believe that this gaming community I’ve loved for so many years can come together with understanding, compassion, love, and inclusion.

If you’d like to help, there are many ways to aid communities locally and nationally. As a visual journalist I believe accurate data speaks truth, so I recommend checking out Campaign Zero.

    Congratulations on this milestone. For ten years you’ve shared your insights on the board game hobby with professionalism, candor, intelligence and humor. Serious issues in the world today demand our attention, keeping us from fully enjoying the frivolity of playing games to which we are accustomed. I, too, hope and pray for a better tomorrow that will include many more voices and persons with whom to share this great hobby of ours when we find time to gather around a table in peace and health again.
