A Game of Life

Filed under: — Garry @ 7:04 pm

Our very own Pete Darby has decided to dip his toe in the water and start a new gaming blog. Entitled A Game of Life, Pete reckons that it is :

“partly to waffle on generally about games and life, and with one eye on getting material together to engage with and teach “muggles” about the hobby of gaming. A lot of it may look like going over old ground, or teaching you to suck eggs, but it’s with a view to talking to people who never sucked eggs, and if they did, it was a long time ago and the eggs were rotten. Wait, that metaphor ended somewhere stinky.”

Best of luck, Pete, and I’m looking forward to what you’ve got to say - complimentary comments about game club organisation will be gratefully accepted.
