In October I played about four or five solo games. In November I played one. Once. (It was Friday.)
When I'm well, I log 50-90 solo plays in a month. I really want to start playing again. So I've set myself small goals. I'm working towards playing Aliens: Bug Hunt, as I recently received it as a present.
STEP 1: read the rules ✔️
STEP 2: watch a playthrough video
STEP 3: set up the game, go through the motions with the rules
STEP 4: play the game!
Okay, step 5: I'll write a Table Presence for our website 😉
I took the first step today. It's just like starting over.
Fourty years ago, in the beginning of October I heard something weird. A teaser two notes on the radio. They didn't say which artist. Just that something special was coming. Soon. I was a huge Beatles fan, so I ran to the record store. Asked them about a new John Lennon record. They looked at me as if I was crazy - there had not been one in five years. In November, we knew the rumours had been true. I bought the new single, Starting Over. Then came December 8. And there would never be a new album again.
I don't play the song often, it's not really my favourite. But on December 8, yes, I do.
