Gathering of Engineers

Ludographic considerations from the Silicon Forest

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

And now it's time for so long...

...so we'll sing just one more song.

As you probably read yesterday, the Gathering of Engineers is ceasing publication after this week. It's been an interesting experiment. Writing for a group publication like this is definitely different than writing for a personal blog. I almost didn't think of it as a blog, per se – it was more like a slowly-published e-zine to me. I certainly tried to give my articles on here more thought than I generally do for my personal blog.

The timing of the shutdown is a good one for me. My gaming time has been a tad restricted over the last few months, and with a new baby coming in August, it's not going to get any better. It's hard to write about gaming when you're doing very little of it. It's tough to come up with an idea when the sum total of your gaming is two Roma sessions, Bang!, PBEM Here I Stand, and reading the rules to 1860 again.

Thanks for all the comments and emails you sent over the months. I know some of you have shown interest in ideas I've started – I'll try to continue things like the looks at sports games and elephant eating over on Incunabula.

It's been fun. I'm definitely better for the experience. I hope you feel like you're better for reading it. Maybe we'll do this again - who knows?
