Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — ‘Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.’ — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.
I’m convinced Emerson would have been a blogger.
So that whole rating system? I’m over it. In fact, I’ve given myself excess of BoardGameGeek over the past fortnight and have surfeited my appetite for it that it has sickened and died. Not my appetite for board games—heavens no. But my appetite for BoardGameGeek (I hope).
Just too many forum posts devolving into squabble and too much pressure to expand the collection. Even the drive to play something seven times just so I could rate it seemed incredibly perverse. If it takes a meta-consideration to play a game, the game probably doesn’t deserve to be played (lookin’ at you, ZÈRTZ).
This doesn’t really mean a whole lot for the reader of this blog. I still like (and therefore will continue) to write up board game session reports in an effort to make playing board games look and sound fun. What will change is that I will now be even more dependent on board game blogs for the new hotness and whatnot. So, ye board game blogs, get cracking.
