Farewell 2022 – The Best on the Blog!

Now the year truly comes to a close. I’ve celebrated the fifth anniversary of this blog this year.

Some things don’t change: Slightly over 40% of my blog’s visitors come from the United States, followed mostly by other countries of the Anglosphere (the UK, Canada, Australia, and Ireland make up well over 20%) and the large European board gaming countries (Spain, Germany, France, and Italy account for another ~15%). By sheer clicks per population, no country might be more into Clio’s Board Games than Luxembourg – 0.008 % of the global population, but 0.5% of my page views. Whoever reads this from Luxembourg – get in touch. I’d love to get to know you!

Farewell 2022 – Historical Non-Fiction!

For the first time in forever, I read more works of fiction than non-fiction this year. History books only made up 32% of my total reads. What’s happening to me? Am I becoming a normal, functional member of society, living fully in the present instead of hopelessly searching for meaning in the past? – No, I think it was just a fluke. At least some of the works of historical non-fiction were so enlightening that I want to share them with you as well.

Farewell 2022 – Non-Historical Games!

My non-historical gaming mostly treaded on well-known ground – all the more testament to the quality of these games that I keep coming back to them. Here are the three I enjoyed most this year:

Farewell 2022 – New-to-Me Games!

There’s a lot of things that happened this year which I didn’t have on my 2022 bingo card… but let’s not dwell on that and talk about board games instead!

As the year comes to a close, I’ll do my usual end-of-year posts: My personal top three in a range of categories. As tradition commands, we’ll begin with the games that I played for the first time this year… Another thing I didn’t have on my bingo card was how many good new games I played! Here are the best three.

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.
