So it's almost the end of January....

And I'm still talking about 2008. Let me just get this out of the way.

Here are more noteable events of 2008:

More Game Stores in and around Chicago!!
This year saw the opening of Gamer's Asylum in Evanston (where I purchased some Bloodletters and my collecter edition of 5th), Black Sun Games in Chicago (Where I picked up my Lord of Change and Assault on Black Reach), and The Games Dojo (Where I've never actaully been but figured I'd mention it).

I for a long time have looked for a games store to make my "home store". However, since I already have a regular place to play (not a game store), I'm probably not as excited about this as I could be. They're good stores and I plan to support them (Black Sun at least), but I don't see myself playing in them that often.

5th Edition of 40K
This is a huge deal. I've been over this, but I really like 5th edition. It's sad that a fair number of people I know actually quit 40K over 5th edition. Oh well; their loss.

First time running a 40K campaign
Again, I've been over this. I've learned something and I'm moving forward.

Seems like more blogs then ever have popped up this year. I'm sad to say that I think I wrote less this year then in the two proceeding years (look here for 06). More on this in the next post.

Wheew! I'm glad that's out of the way....
