Hey, Nerdious! Where are you?
So it’s been a while since the last post. Nerdious has not died, game night has continued, but a few changes were necessary.
I think about Nerdious on a daily basis and often run into road blocks.
While originally planning Nerdious, I looked at other blogs, and envisioned Nerdious to board games as Kotaku is to video games. Unfortunately that has not come to pass. Instead what’s been posted are a couple game nights, one quick guide, and a post announcing Ninja Nights. Nothing nearly as in-depth as I’d like nor original.
The crazy thing is that I’ve kept writing pieces for Nerdious and not posting them. They’re not bad so there’s no reason to withhold them. The problem is consistency. In a perfect world, I would post three times a week. I kept writing a few pieces here and there trying to get on a steady writing schedule, and I am still not there.
In the process of writing though, I’ve brainstormed a few more ideas for what to write about.
One thing that I believe is WRITE WHAT YOU’D LIKE TO READ.
With that said, what I would like to see is the following:
– Homebrew scenarios for Zombicide
– Reviews for board games
– Content about the games I’m currently obsessing over
– Reviews for select indie and Nintendo Switch games
The real outlier there is the bit on Nintendo Switch, but it defines my view on modern gaming in general. I’ve always felt that gaming is a communal experience whether it’s on TV or the living room table. I have fond memories of playing games with my father, my martial arts instructor, and friends growing up.
With Nerdious, I want to focus on community and bringing together people.
What does this mean for game night?
I’m still a Ninja with Ninja Division. I’m still registered to host organized play events for Level 99 Games, which Season 3 will be wrapping up in a few weeks and I plan to host at least one more event for that. I still plan to continue my community outreach in working with publishers and distributors, though I’m not sure in what capacity anymore.
However, I know that regular public games are a little bit more difficult to host now. I play the games because I enjoy them and I want you to as well. However, I am not generating the content I want for Nerdious on a regular basis, and while I’m not entirely sure how to fix that – I will make an effort to move in the right direction.
There are still many stories to be told, dice to be chucked, zombies to be slain, and ponies to be rescued. I know these are great games, now let’s spread the word. Let’s keep building the community and expanding the fan base for the games we support together.
