Right. So I thought I’d create a space for people to share their interesting side projects, whether boardgame related or not. Taking a look at @debiant’s design blog is really interesting, and I’ve not got much to compare, but I thought I’d mention some stuff anyway.
I have a boardgames blog, started fairly recently, trying to focus on the more nebulous side of what’s so special about the hobby. So not conventional reviews, but discussions of ‘magic’ and ‘tactility’. I mostly did it because I liked the pun (although originally the pun was supposed to be for a dating sim/advance wars hybrid, set on a military base filled with anthropmorphic army officers with very specific tactical turn ons*). Anyway, presenting: Tactics and Tactility.
In utterly unrelated but potentially wonderful other side projects, I’m about to start on ‘Queen: An Exploded Diagram’, in which I review every single track from every Queen studio album in order. I’ve basically been obsessed with Queen since I was a child, particularly stating (from a very young age) that people were missing out on the best of Queen by only knowing the Greatest Hits albums. So I’m going to prove it. The other angle is finding a way to explain to people how I love Queen so much when my other favourite artists are things like Four Tet, Aphex Twin and late era Scott Walker. The blog’s here: http://explodedqueen.wordpress.com. There’s also a patreon, to see if I can make some money back on it, but I won’t be so churlish as to link directly!
Through TnT you’ll also find links to my older blogs and projects.
So yeah. If any of you could actually handle MORE of my incoherent ramblings, now you’ve got a few other options.
*If anyone does actually want to help me make this, I have a lot of ideas about how to make it work!
