4 Years Ago

According to Facebook, today is the anniversary of the day that I received PLAAY Games’  History Maker Baseball in the mail.

That game, in addition to Strat-O-Matic Baseball, set me on my current hobby of table top sports.

I suppose I’ll pull that one out and play a game or two of the 1974 John D’Acquisto rookie season replay.

Stay tuned!

Locked In

Whether it’s weekly, daily or whatever, I think I’m back in the table top sports groove, along with the other gaming that I’ve picked up along the way.

Current plans are to finish the home stand with the 1967 Giants (2 vs. Pittsburgh, 4 vs. New York) and then move on to the next full day of games in the 1917 replay (April 14, 8 games).

Along the way there will be some B-17 bomber action.

Stay tuned!

Schedule

Yeah, this never has worked for me: setting up a schedule for what to play on any given day.

I had a table that I rolled dice one to try to determine what game I would play on a given night.  Didn’t work, never stuck to it, and it was edited many times as I finished a given replay.

I want to try to organize my play between sports games and war games, so maybe I should just alternate my weekly focus from one to the other, because I’ve actually found myself frozen into inaction as I try to decide between the two hobbies.  I end up doing neither and spending too much time online or wallowing in my own indecision.

So starting this week, I’ll continue with the war games (Bataan! is my primary focus), and switch to sports next week, just in time for the big racing day of 2017 (Monaco GP/Indy 500/World 600), which happens to fall on my sister’s birthday.  Focus will be on baseball and (of course) racing games.

And maybe wrestling.

Stay tuned!
