A Year In Gaming - 2020

It's New Years Eve, and that means we're finally about to leave the hellscape that was 2020 for the fresh, unblemished year of 2021!

Thing's can only get better from here, right?

Thanks to Covid-19, I think it's safe to assume that everyone has been playing a lot less games this year, even with so many hobbyists taking to online venues like Tabletop Simulator. That's certainly been the case for me. Here are the game I played this year:

  • ADLG - 1
  • Battletech - 2
  • Bolt Action - 5
  • Brother Against Brother - 1
  • By Company Into Line - 1
  • Cruel Seas - 1
  • Domari Nolo - 1
  • Dracula's America - 1
  • Et Sans R├ęsultat! - 1
  • Fistful of Lead: Horse & Musket - 1
  • General d'Armee - 1
  • Konflikt '47 - 1
  • Man O' War - 4
  • Middle Earth SBG - 3
  • Mordheim - 4
  • Muskets & Tomahawks - 1
  • Rebels & Patriots - 1
  • Red Book of the Elf King - 1
  • Triumph! - 1
  • Warlords of Erehwon - 3
  • WHFB: Renaissance - 1
That's 35 games total, only a little more than half as much as I played in 2019. The pandemic and the subsequent shutdown and social activity restrictions are, obviously, responsible for that. And even with the vaccines, a large part of 2021 will likely also be as difficult to put games together for. 

The shutdown and lack of gaming did, however, give me plenty of time to work on my various projects, and 2020 was definitely one for the record books for my painting progress:
  • 10mm Artillery - 12
  • 10mm Cavalry - 16
  • 10mm Infantry - 528
  • 15mm Artillery - 4
  • 15mm Cavalry - 2
  • 15mm Infantry - 270
  • 28mm Artillery - 3
  • 28mm Cavalry - 20
  • 28mm Infantry - 135
  • 28mm Monsters - 4
  • 28mm Vehicle - 16
  • 6mm Vehicle - 19
Wow! I know I've only been keeping track of my painting tally since 2018 (so that's a five year dark period), but I'm pretty sure that's a record amount of finished miniatures. 

It was also the year of 10mm miniatures, thanks to my work on the ACW project. Even 15mm got some love this year .

Even with so relatively few games played, that doesn't mean they weren't fun to play and great to look at!
