Farewell 2021! – The Best on the Blog

The fourth full year on this blog has come to an end, and the blog keeps growing – this year, the pace of growth even picked up from last year (despite a few slouch months in the middle). I’d like to believe that is because of the quality content I put out here.

Farewell 2021 – Historical Fiction!

I did not read a whole lot of historical fiction this year – it was either non-fiction or fiction on different matters. Still, there were a few books that stayed on my mind.

Farewell 2021 – Non-Historical Games!

There are surprisingly few non-historical board games I played this year – almost everything I played had a (more or less solid) base in history. Still, there were a few games taking me to fantastical worlds – and here are the three I enjoyed most.

Farewell 2020 – The Best on the Blog

2020 is all but over! (Cheers erupt everywhere.) It was the third full year of my blog. The blog keeps growing: While my number of posts is almost exactly what it was in 2019, both the number of visitors and views have markedly increased. Unsurprisingly, most of my visitors come from the United States (almost 45%), but there are many other (mostly English-speaking and/or European) countries in which the blog does well – adjusting for population, Clio’s Board Games is very popular in Canada and Sweden (I guess the people in the often dark and cold north know the pleasures of board gaming and blog reading). Some countries whose visitor counts have increased markedly are Spain, France, Brazil, and Japan. Hello everybody new! I hope you enjoy reading this blog.

I certainly enjoy writing it. And so, to top off my review of the year, here are the six posts which I think represent the most interesting this blog had to offer in 2020:

Farewell 2020 – Historical Fiction

If there ever was a year in my life that cried for some escapism, 2020 was it. I’m not saying it was the worst year or anything (personally, I’ve certainly had more troublesome years), but the barrage of worrying news was more deafening than ever. So, what better way to cope with that than to retreat to a comfortable armchair and lose oneself in a story of times gone by, of battles fought and won or lost a long time ago, whose impact on today’s life is indirect (and yet often crucial). Thus, here are the three best historical fiction books I read this year.

Farewell 2020 – Non-Historical Board Games

Sure, this blog is all about games and history. But in the end, most of us gamers are happy with whatever gaming we get to do (there are always more games we are interested in than opportunities to play), and this is especially true in this year of limited social interaction. So, without further ado, here are my top 3 non-historical games I played this year!
