Welcome to May! Wow, a third of the year over already.
April was a slow month for games, mostly because I was working on Star Runner (my game). If you're interested in providing feedback on the rules, send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or a direct message on Twitter @boardgamer89
The biggest news of the month was the first test of Star Runner, which was fun, but revealed several problems. I've been messing with things and plan on testing again shortly. I did get a couple of game days in with the gaming family, so that brought up the play total to 11. Sad that it's a lower total than February, but happy days are soon to come. My sister returns from school in a week, and that should lead to the return of weekend games with my family once in awhile.
The running total is now 93 which puts the projected year total at 279, which would be 21 plays short of my goal of 300. (Looking at 2011, my highest set of 4 months of plays was April-July, so plays pick up with summer)
I acquired two new games, Star Trek Expeditions, which I got in a trade for Star Trek CCG cards, and Lemonade Stand from Kickstarter.
My unplayed game count is now at 15 due to gaining ST: Expeditions, and selling Descent.
April saw the 4,000th page view for this blog which is incredible in under 6 months, thank-you all so much for that.
I didn't get as many reviews as I would have liked done. (This is kinda a running story)

The final item of note.
I'd like to start a new segment with some guests. Now, no one famous at first, but that gives you, yes YOU, person reading this blog a chance to come on and talk about games.
We can do a review of a game we've both played, see the Battlestar Galactica review I did with my friend Josh.
We can talk about a type of game (dice, word, puzzle, co-op, etc.)
We can talk about gaming in general.
So, what should you do?
Send me an e-mail (email@example.com) with what you'd like to do for an article, and I'll do my best to make that happen. It may take a little while to get it together, but I think getting some reader input makes things more fun.
Thank-you all for reading and comments. You keep me energized to post articles, and continue talking about games.
