Hobby room update!

Alright, it has been about a week and a half, so I figured I'd show my reader an update!

First, I'd like to kind of give some perspective- I took three pictures of the room, from three different places.  Just to show the places, here is a map:

 I took a picture first from the bottom right, then from the left (viewing that wooden bookcase), then from the top right.

Alright- the room!

So anyway- I've made some progress, but still more work to do.

Addressing my hobby issue.

On the gaming front, things aren't going too bad- I played two-ish games of Star Fleet Battles in the past week (online).  Lost one, and will probably lose the second one, but I'm actually in a pretty good spot there for the moment.  Played in a Star Wars RPG session last night, which was also fun. (A notice of games I play does show up in my Twitter feed, which is on the bottom right of the blog here!)

The hobby side of my life struggles because of this:

That's my spare room.  That's where I keep all of my gaming stuff (there's a closet on the wall to the left that you can't see, that's filled with more stuff).  Obviously- I have a lot of stuff there, but the issue is just organization.  I could work on minis... if I could get to the table, and give myself space to work on them.

I could build decks!  The problem is that I can't easily get to all of those boxes of cards, so I can't really do so easily.

I could play some wargames, and leave them set up!  The problem there, again, is access to the table (off to the left).

Anyway- I have begun focusing on this problem.  I'm trying to spend an hour a day, three or more days a week, trying to organize this room.  Once it's clean, I can do more hobby work, and heck, more gaming.

Posting that picture here hopefully will shame me some.  Shame me into making progress.  Wish me luck!

I've been struggling to keep up with blogging.  I won't say that will change, but I will say that one of the things I've struggled with is now resolved- I've closed down my other blogs!

There's a couple reasons these other blogs have distracted me from blogging in general.  It's hard to explain, so I won't bother.  Suffice to say, having only one place to blog will make it easier for me.  I'm not writing a whole lot of interesting stuff anywhere, so why bother writing for three places, instead of one?

On the gaming front- I have been playing quite regularly- lots of card games, some RPGs, and occasional board games.  On the minis front, it's really kind of died off though.  I've played some Armada and X-Wing this year... but not much else.  But my interest remains- I have been looking at the Mk3 cards and rules a lot, and I'm loving the changes (plus, Trenchers have Tough!?).  I really want to try the current edition of Malifaux.  I'm interested in learning about and trying Guild Ball.  I think that I'll get a chance to do these games this year, and others besides.

Anyway- posts from my other blogs have transferred over.  You'll see me occasionally post about non-minis games here, but I think having this as a general gaming blog will help me post more.  We shall see though....
