I'm mostly posting on Google Plus now

I've moved almost all of my blogging-like activity over to Google Plus.

My profile on Google Plus has some amount of public content, and if you follow me there and I know you, I'll add you and I share quite a bit more to my limited circles. My public posts on my profile are a bit skewed toward photography.

For board gaming related posts, I've also created a "Plus Page": mkgray Board Games where I'm posting most of my public board gaming related comments. I just started it earlier this week, but have a big burst of activity due to a ton of gaming at Lobster Trap (a friend's mini-gaming con).

2010 Gaming

My "game of the year" is pretty definitely Space Alert, which for me is a perfect combination of programmed action, cooperation & realtime play, the former two of which I like a lot, and the last which I like when well done, and it's well done in Space Alert.

Dominion remained popular and will likely continue to do so, though RftG somehow almost entirely slipped out of play this year, which is a little sad. I'll have to make sure to go back to it more in 2011. Non-kids games successfully played with the kids this year: Dominion, It's Mine, Ciao Ciao, & Rumis, notably.
