Building and Growing a Community

Back in mid-November of last year, there was an interesting post over at the WGC Infinity Facebook Group.  It read like this:

"I'd like to talk about Community Growth.  I'm the table top guy at a shop in Richmond, VA and we have a small but tight Infinity group that I'd like to make much larger because we have the space to run HUGE events and I love the game.  What helped you guys grow your communities?"  -  Mike DeBolt

This was an amazing post that sparked a huge amount of discussion.  Discussion, not arguments, debates or complaints, but honest, true and helpful discussion on the topic.

See?  The internets can be nice sometimes...

Healthier Gamer Series: A Year in Review

"But Tim, what happened to the updates for November and December?"

Honestly, life swallowed them up and didn't even spit them back out.  As you could probably tell from my lack of articles in December, I didn't get much writing done at all unfortunately.  Typically my time management isn't really that bad, but apparently during the holiday months I blink and suddenly it's the second week of January!

Enough excuses though, on to the review!

Happy New (Hobby) Year!

2015 has come and gone, and so very much has happened in the span of the past 12 months.  We’ve seen the death of a much-loved game in Warhammer Fantasy, and the rise of many upstarts in the industry such as Infinity, Malifaux, Dark Age, Firestorm Armada, and many more.

I’ve also seen much in the way of change from a personal standpoint as a hobbyist.  Some for the good, some for the better, and some for the…well, let’s just say different.
