Writing a blog consistently is hard.
Writing a board game review blog is harder.
It takes X amount of games to get a feel for how it plays. And while I’m fully invested. Not everyone shares my enthusiasm. Meaning I don’t always get to play as much as I want or need to keep delivering content.
The next game I want to review is Dawn of the Peacemakers, I’m two games into the campaign. So far it’s great, but I definitely want to get more under the belt before I come to any conclusions.
So there’s that.
More personally, I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression issues recently. While shitty in general. This changes writing from something I love to do, to being a chore.
Which absolutely sucks.
Therefore, there’s no review this week.

First off, I want to say thanks for checking out, and participating in my blog. It’s been up and running for 6 months now, providing near weekly reviews of some of the best and well, not so best board games on the market.
If you’ve been following recently, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve gotten a bit slack with the Friday posts. This post is to say – that’s probably going to continue.

However, I will still continue to write reviews! It’s what I love most about this site, and a great reason to continue to add to my already bloated board game collection.
Thanks again for reading my blog, I’ll see you on Tuesday.
Dave Collinson is getting married in nine days. If you don’t know of him, he’s pretty cool. He’s an artist who’s done some work on board games, has his own board game called Lumberjerks, and a game he’s been working on just recently came out of early access called Damsel. If you haven’t heard of him till now, do yourself a favour and checkout his portfolio here.

The advertised perfect Christmas isn’t something we get in Australia. No snow, inhabitable climate for reindeer, and Australians generally don’t put effort into any holiday – except for Australia Day, when we drink beer, put snags on the barbie and watch the cricket. With that in mind, I’ll be reviewing Christmas-opoly.
