Looking Back While Moving Forward

Hello everyone and welcome to a retrospectively foresightful Dispatch!

First and foremost, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! I hope that your holiday season is full of good friends and great times!

With one year drawing to a close and another beginning, I thought I would take a look at the year past and share some of the things that I'm planning for the Dispatch in the coming months.

The beginning of this year was a desolate wasteland in gaming for me. Changes at work basically made it impossible for me to get any gaming in for months, but now the drought is over! More changes at work have freed me up for gaming again and I'm already taking advantage of it. Right now the focus of my gaming group is on Monsterpocalypse but there are a few other games that I want to bring to the table and I'll be sure to write about them here. That means more battle reports, possibly some game reviews, and more.

In addition to more gaming in the new year, I am also going to make a few changes to the blog. I am going to update and expand some of the older Audio Noise segments and I also want to take a closer look at gaming here in Sin City. There are a few pretty good gaming stores around town not to mention several conventions and games days throughout the year but most of that is hidden behind the glitz of the Strip. Let me tell you, there is definitely more to gaming in Vegas than what you find in the casinos.

I'm also going to put up running totals for the year of minis bought and painted, terrain made, and games played, an idea that I'm taking from another blog, Mik's Minis (if you haven't heard of it, check it out!). Personally I really like this idea as I think it will help keep the gaming and painting blahs away, not to mention I'm interested in seeing what my numbers are like. A little silly? Perhaps, but anything that motivates you in the hobby is a good thing in my book.

That's about all for now so I'm going to get going and enjoy my Christmas. Merry Christmas to all of you and I'll see you in the New Year! Until next time...
