My good friends (family?) just had a baby boy! A fond welcome to him, and blessings on his eventual quest to help the hobbits escape the Agents to topple the Matrix. :-)
This morning I wondered whether using the label "review" for my rambles gives the wrong impression. Though my purpose is not so much to capture or recommend a play experience as it is to reflect on its construction, there is an element of review in pondering the sum of its parts. I just tend to believe that the oft-lengthy discussion about what knobs and levers I would be tempted to fiddle with that follows makes even the best game seem unenjoyable. Perhaps "impressions" or "breakdowns" are better descriptors.
I'm a little curious if folks enjoy them, too. They take longer to write, but provide some substance until news arrives about my secret doings.
