I always feel flattered but very self-conscious when my blog gets linked somewhere else or somebody I don't even know mentions that they read it. It's even worse when somebody as respected in the hobby as Mike Siggins calls attention to it in his column. Yikes! I often forget that somebody besides my local group and me might be reading it. I guess that I shouldn't be too surprised as I "lurk" on many blogs, too pressed for time or just too lazy to comment on the entries. I'm also reminded once again that I've been horribly neglecting my blog lately. We were able to scrape together some friends for games this past Saturday, so I at least have a few things to write about now. Although be forewarned - I'm still recovering from Eurogamer burnout as you'll see from my game choices.
Mike's column, Gamer's Notebook, is excellent reading as usual and it includes his Sumo awards for last year's games. I haven't even played his top two games or many of the other games he discusses, showing just how behind I'm getting on the newer stuff.

The honor is well deserved, Susan. You guys have one of the most interesting gaming blogs on the web. As always, Siggins has very good taste.
Dang Larry, now you're making me blush too! Thanks for your kind compliment. I'm surprised that you still read it, given how much we've strayed from the games that you prefer. I've been Fantasy Flighted! :)
Btw, I'm really enjoying your articles on BGN. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to play many of the newer games yet.
