A Gnome's Ponderings

I'm a gamer. I love me some games and I like to ramble about games and gaming. So, more than anything else, this blog is a place for me to keep track of my ramblings. If anyone finds this helpful or even (good heavens) insightful, so much the better.

My January PnP

January. The start of a new year. A new year of Print and Play crafting. So, what did I make?

Good Little Gardens
Maztec Duel
Castles of Burgundy the Dice Game
Artisans of the Taj Mahal
Forest Guardians (2020 9-Card Contest)
Sunrise in Moloka’i (2019 9-Card Contest)
Sabotage the Raj

I actually completed more projects than I planned to. I actually spent most of my crafting time doing prep work for games to make later down the line. I have a literal stack of projects one step from completion.

Last year was so very chaotic and stressful in many ways. Print and play was very helpful in keeping things together. Craft therapy. Finishing a project is fun and emotionally satisfying. I don’t know how 2021 will go so I want a big stock prepped in case I don’t have a lot of crafting time in the months to come.

Good Little Gardens was both my ‘big’ project for January and the first thing I made in 2021. While I am going to play it, I really wanted to make it so that my first project was a happy theme after what 2020 was like.

I admit, I made Castles of Burgundy the Dice Game really just to try it out. If I like it, getting an actual copy of the game will be the plan. And Forest Guardians turned out to be a happy surprise.

I don’t know what the year will be like. It could be that January is my most productive month. If it is, I feel I’ve set myself up well.
