Greetings to any loyal readers who still remain! It’s been over a year and a half since my last entry on The Rumpus Room, and you could be forgiven for thinking I just wasn’t writing about games anymore. But you would be wrong! I still contribute to Fortress: Ameritrash, or as you might know it now, There Will Be Games. I publish a new article every two months, but I’ve also been regularly blogging a series called Why Do I Own This?, where I am reviewing every game in my collection, five at a time.
But I did want to publish a piece here on the old Rumpus Room and let all of you know that I am officially retiring this blog. It has served me well for eight years, and I’m thankful for all of the indulgences I’ve been granted to write about things I love. I’ve covered everything from games to my kids to recaps of Lost, and a lot of other ground as well. Thanks for those of you who have been reading. The site will stay live and you can continue to read my archives.
However, I’m not retiring from blogging itself! One of my reasons for retiring The Rumpus Room is to refocus on writing about games of all kinds. That’s why I’ve started a new blog, Games Are For Everyone. I’ll still write about board games, but I’ll also include pieces on video and computer games, and even about sports if I feel like taking it on. Games are a part of our lives, either directly or indirectly, and I wanted to focus on them in all their form. I’ve written two entries already, one about the civilization board game Through the Ages and another about classic PC game Baldur’s Gate. Go give them a look, subscribe, comment, and share it with your friends, family, and pets.
I’ll see you over on my new digs. Until then, this is the Rumpus Room, signing off.
