Wow. Just… Wow.
So what happened 5 years ago today? ~
Brant Guillory, 26 January 2017
Five years ago, we opened our forums here at GrogHeads. Our front page followed shortly thereafter, and we’ve been talking games all along.
We wanted GrogHeads to be an independent voice in the strategy gaming world. We also wanted to make sure we covered strategy gaming across the entire spectrum of gaming – tabletop, digital, team, distributed, multiplayer, whatevs! – and follow the interests of our members.
Do we get it right every time? Nope.
By the end of February, we had over 100 members in our forums. Within 2 years, we were running a wargaming program at Origins. Along the way, we’ve podcasted, reviewed, pontificated, sarcasmed, photo’ed, gamed, AAR’ed, voted, and discussed all manner of strategy games, and more.
We’re on our 4th iteration of our Readers’ Choice awards, planning our 4th GrogHeads Central Command at Origins, and in March we’ll run our 5th college hoops Bracket Challenge (hey, don’t laugh – it’s a big hit every year). We’re a few dozen months, a few hundred reviews and a few thousand pictures into covering all sorts of games.
So how are you getting involved? Are you talking games in our forums? Sharing an AAR with the gang? Coming to Origins to join us for a weekend-plus of great gaming? Subscribing to the podcast? Following us on Twitter? Hanging with us on FaceBook? All of the above?
Whatever it is, we hope you have a great time doing it, just like we do.
So from all of us here at GrogHeads, to all of you strategy gamers everywhere, wherever you are and whatever you’re playing – thank you, from the bottom of our dice cup.
Here’s to a many more years to come.
