Time For A Vacation
When I first discovered Euro-games in 2003, I was totally enthralled. Here was a different breed of game that wasn’t long and boring, that offered a different experience each time you played. I found that I couldn’t get enough of them and thought about them constantly.
Like most new game geeks, I bought games at a rate that amazed not just my family but myself. A new game would get one or two plays before the next shipment would arrive but still the hunger persisted. I wanted to experience all there was of these amazing games.
In the last month or two I’ve felt that enthusiasm waning until the bonfire has burned down to a few coals. I can’t believe it, but I have no desire to buy or learn a new game, or even play an online game. I realized that I hardly think about games now except to try to find something worth sharing with you, and I don’t feel that I’ve been very successful at that lately. Obviously my brain felt the need for a vacation and made reservations without consulting me.
Summer is actually a good time to take a vacation from the gaming scene since any free time my husband and I have will be spent doing home improvements like painting the house (phhtt!) and repairing the sidewalk (double phhttt!).
I hope I’m able to find my “groove” again but until then Yehuda told me not to stop writing so I’ll try to put some thoughts in my personal blog even if it’s just day-to-day activities with an occasional nod at something game-related. I hope you all will drop by once in a while and talk to me.
Until next time, place your bet on the Colossus.
