Happy Birthday to me

I’m 9 today! I didn’t realise it was coming up, somehow – clearly, gone are the days when I would celebrate with a whole Birthday Week!! How remiss of me.

Well, I’ve had a bit of a mini-celebration, all the same, playing some Marvel Champions with a new acquisition, the Scarlet Witch deck.

Marvel Champions

Of course, for the first outing it was a toss-up between Vision and Quicksilver, but I went for the latter as so much of those decks appears designed to work together. I was really impressed with how they both played – Quicksilver I’ve played before, of course, but I do enjoy how he’s able to just do so much, thanks to being able to ready himself so often. Scarlet Witch, on the other hand, is pretty good at throwing damage around thanks to the Chaos Magic effects of using the boost icons of the encounter deck to her advantage. It’s really quite something, I have to say. She’s also quite efficient in how she can draw and discard cards to find the right cards.

I’d definitely like to play both of them again, though I can see ways in which I could potentially tinker with them both. I definitely need to try and rein myself in on that front, as I really do enjoy playing with the precon decks, after all!

So. 2024 marks a full decade of blogging here. I wonder what I could do to mark that milestone…

  1. Big congrats! A serious milestone. I figure if someone lasts out 3 years, chances are really good they will stick around. If they stick out 5 years, I figure they’re going to keep blogging even if life gets difficult. Once someone hits the decade marker, I figure they’re hooked for life and blogging is in their blood and it would take something drastic like a death in the family to get them to stop.
    So tell your wife to be extra careful this next year, ok? 😉

    As for what you can do for your decade anniversary? Have a give-away of one marvel champions box set (hint hint). Sounds like a fantastic idea to me, hahahahaha 😀

    1. How did I miss this comment?! Thank you very much!! I’m sure I’ll keep going forever at this point, I had been reflecting recently on why I do this, and I think the conclusion was, “I just enjoy it!” 😃

      I do like your giveaway idea, but surely you’ll have bought it by then 🤣

      1. I miss notifications of comments all the time. Which is why I manually check my site at least once a day 🙂

        It took me close to 3 years to eventually buy Doom 🙂

      2. I use the jetpack app on my phone but the website on my pc at home. I don’t know if there’s a disconnect somewhere, but sometimes it feels like they’re not communicating all that well and I get caught in the middle.
