Hello, faithful readers. I’ve posted a quick review of 2017 and some goals for 2018 over on my Patreon page. I think 2017 has been a great first year for The Thoughtful Gamer and I’m confident that 2018 will be even better. I didn’t talk about it in the original post, but another goal I have for the year is to at least meet my Patreon funding goals so that I can operate The Thoughtful Gamer in the black for 2018. I don’t have a lot of expenses, but there are yearly recurring costs for this kind of thing, as well as other expenses (like a dedicated work laptop) that I’m hoping to be able to purchase. If you’ve enjoyed the articles and/or the podcast, consider chipping in a couple dollars a month to help cover my costs. Plus you’ll get some sweet rewards, like access to our discord channel, where we talk about games and movies and, right now, a lot of Gloomhaven. You’ll also get to see the podcast recordings live, where there is a 100% chance that the cat will make an appearance. It’s a fun time!
