It’s been a while since I last did a blog post, something I deeply regret but something that’s been unavoidable. This post is going to give a quick update on what I’ve been up to over the past few months.
So what’s been going on with day to day life?
I’ve been really busy with work, aren’t we all? I’ve also increased my gaming sessions a great deal, I’m currently doing one or two a week at a minimum. I’ve also been taking part in a self-study course about Gamification in my spare time. It’s been really interesting and I’ve loved looking at taking gaming elements and applying them to real world business problems.
What have I been doing related to gaming?
For the first time ever I went to a gaming session held at a gaming store. I’ve only ever played games with a group of close friends, but in the past couple of months I’ve been to two Board Game sessions held at Firestorm Games over in Cardiff. I had a great time, met a few new people and of course played a few games. I’ll be back there again on 16th May so I’m looking forward to that.
I’ve also spent a bit of time thinking about other ways I can get involved in more gaming activities. I’ve done three things to try and work towards this.
Purchased some Malifaux miniatures.
Purchased a selection of X-Wing miniatures.
Recorded my first podcast.
A little bit more about the podcast. It’s a 16 minute introductory podcast in which I discuss my top ten games and some games I played recently. I’ve got to look into hosting this so subscribe or check back later in the week for an update on where you can get that. I’m currently putting together an outline for the next one which will hopefully have a friend of mine as a guest.
