6 x 6 Game Challenge - December Update

I have failed...

And I'm okay with that.

As I look back there were really two reasons that I failed.

1.  An odd thing happened with this game challenge.  I would have some time to play a game, but maybe not enough to play one on the list, so I would just not play a game.  This didn't happen all the time, but enough that I missed out on playing several games.  This sounds odd, but in my mind I would argue that if I was going to play a game I should play one toward the goal.

2.  I wanted to make a video of each play.  While that isn't a big deal in general, it does affect the amount of time it takes to play a game.  I know my videos are not always great, but it still takes time and effort to set up equipment and then edit the videos later.  If I had just been writing a blog post about the games I played things probably would have been a lot easier to complete.

Even though I failed, I had a lot of fun and did play some good games.  I hope this inspired others to play some games as well.

I'm thinking about projects for the coming year, but have not set anything in stone just yet.

  1. Sure, you may not have hit 6 plays each, but you got a lot of plays in of games that may have otherwise sat on the shelf.
    Nice work

    1. Very true. I'm glad I took part in the challenge.

  2. Sean, meet Shaun, another one that failed. You got closer to 36 than me :-)

    My problem was sticking to a game :-( I have half a dozen AARs half done for games not on my list. And I did also hit gamer's block in late November - I just did not feel like playing a game. Although I spent a lot (and I mean a lot) on writing rules for various things.

    But I am glad I took part as I completed some projects that had been hanging around for nearly 20 years.

    1. Nice to meet you.

      I also had a hard time sticking to a game. While there are several games that I play repeatedly, that list is pretty short and only 1 ended up on my list (Memoir '44).

      It was a good experience and I also got some projects completed and some games played that I wouldn't have otherwise.
