Hello there, loyal reader. It is with a
half-empty half-full heart that I report that this blog will be taking a sabbatical until TO BE DETERMINED. Yes, it is true, the self-proclaimed omni-gendered parent of board game tumblrs is closing its french doors.
Not that I’ve stopped gaming! Just yesterday I lost a game of Summoner Wars as Erik hammerquaked all three of my Benders’ walls (which was so rude it made me want to quit blogging). But. I started this blog to make gaming look cool among my friends and among the public general, and noting that there are now many other quality session-report-cum-review board gaming websites out there that make gaming look way more cool, it is time to cast this yoke aside.
I know you guys are like “First google reader, now THIS?!” But don’t despair, there are still good times to be had! And why are you reading a board game blog instead of playing, you know, board games anyway? If I ever do win a game of Battlestar Galactica, however, I may re-open these beblogged doors. Until next time. Which will probably be never!
So you’re persevering with this little blog of mine are you? Good for you. Your procrastination truly knows no bounds does it? It’s really quite exceptional.
Today we’re going to talk about the next phase. Likely by now you’ve taken on board my previous ramblings on both introducing your dwindling circle of friends to board games, and which games are best suited to testing the waters. But how best to proceed from here? How best to wade into those waters?
I’m not updating much because of Schedule Frenzy 2013 so read this here piece of internet. It took me too long to learn the advice about Gary. And, in my opinion, it is the number one piece of advice every fledgling gaming evangelist needs to know.
Quickly here, I did a little linear regression to see when some of my most played games will hit 100 plays.

Good lord, I am a guilty breadth gamer, ain’t I?
Edit: Math are hard, predictions adjusted accordingly… not to say that they may not continue to be adjusted as I fix my math/model.
