Happy New Year

I would like to wish my readers a happy and prosperous New Year for 2020. I can only apologise for the lack of updates recently.

I have not been able to get to the computer in quite a while to update what is happening in my little gaming world. Work has been extremely busy and my life has gone off in several great new directions. After the awful last few years, things are finally looking up for me and I cannot grumble at my lot at this present moment.

Gaming has been sparse though due to the lack of time I have available to spend on it. I have managed to get in a few D&D 5e games with my little (now 10th level) Gnome Wizard. This has kept me ticking over slowly but surely and I am hoping to get a few more games in with him (and possibly some new characters?) later this year.

I am also eyeing up the summer for a little more miniature painting time and perhaps checking over what I have in my collection to see what games I can use them for. Objectives and goals change all the time, and mine have done too.

There have been several sets of rules and mountains of new figures released over the last year or two that I may look into this year. The blogs and forums I used to read have been neglected of late, as have the three main wargames magazines - not bought one in years now. As a result, I feel that I am being left behind a little at the moment. This year I will catch up a bit with the background stuff in the hope I can develop my gaming habits later on.

So, what will 2020 bring? To be honest, I really don't know, but for the first time in a long while I feel positive about the future. I hope this confident spirit is also there for you to match your aspirations for this year too.


  1. Happy New Year. I'm glad things are looking more rosy for you and look forward to seeing what you get up to gaming wise this year. I'm just getting back into D&D after almost 40 years away from it. 5e seems so much more accessible and I'm looking forward to some games with my kids.
    All the best

  2. Hi Springinsfeld,
    Thanks for the best wishes. I hope your foray into 5e is as good as mine. It is a lovely ruleset and quite easy to pick up on if you were once an AD&D player. Let me know how you get on.
