For those interested in such things, my review of 2020 is here. It contains a few observations about the effect of lockdown on my gaming and some tentative plans for 2021…

An interesting review of the year. I remember you saying that space within the household was a problem and that games were on hold and then a short time later, your AAR’s returned, so you were obviously back up and running, which was good to see.
Your plans for 2021 are as ambitious as 2020, but if your studies are now behind you, that liberation of time will seem a a great relief. I find studying hard and each time that I have done it, I have had to put everything for that year to one side, so hopefully more things for you in 2021.
Like you, I move around the house to game, a garage too cold, a sun lounge too hot etc and I like your blog for the fact that it is one of perseverance in getting the game to a table, whether that means space of=r scale restriction etc, it is an honest reflection of how many of us face gaming in our home settings.
I also enjoy the back issues of magazines generating the scenarios. A respect and valuing of magazines seems to be slipping in our internet world, so your dipping into back issues is always a delight.
Good luck with your 2021 plans.03/01/2021 at 09:33 #149001
Many thanks Norm. As the children get older, we have to re-configure our house to match and inevitably (and rightly) my gaming has to adapt to that. So it can be for a while that I have a good workable set-up, which suddenly vanishes as a room becomes a bedroom or a playroom or whatever. It has been a challenge this year. I have a solution for the moment, but I am not sure how long it will last…and then it will be back to the drawing board. But the key thing is to be able to adapt and if I run out of space – and it isn’t the size of that space so much as being able to guarantee a little bit of uninterrupted time in it – then I will just have to think of something new, probably involving some form of Portable Wargame or One-Hour Wargame or similar.

I can commiserate in regards to having kids around a lot more. My wife is working from home as well so its, comparatively, crazy here compared to what it used to be.06/01/2021 at 07:51 #149119
Yes. I like having everyone around generally, but it does mean I end up playing a lot more chess, Mansions of Madness and Playstation games than wargames and I do miss that.
