How shall I write about games on my blog?
As you’ve surely noticed, I’m playing a lot of board games lately and would like to write something about them on my blog. I hesitate to do reviews because there are lots of good game reviewers who give games several plays before they review them, and depending on the game it would take me months before I had enough play under my belt to review a game. So here are some other ideas:
- continue what I’ve been doing – irregular random compositions about games as they emerge
- reviews – I don’t care, Brendan, that you haven’t enough time to play games thoroughly before you review them. Review away!
- Why I play ____ – semi-regular feature, maybe twice a month, with just stuff about why we play a game. Not really a review because I won’t be assessing quality so much as what we like.
- Game Design notes – semi-regular feature in which I highlight one aspect of a game I really like from a design perspective.
I am open to suggestions. Post them in the comments.
