State of Paper Dice Games 2022

2021 was a great year for Paper Dice Games! Here is a brief review of the year, in bullet points.

Giving Thanks

I am very grateful for many things, but wanted to list two things here.

First, in my personal life, that me and my family continue to remain healthy (mostly). The amount of stress I don’t have, because my loved ones are healthy, cannot be understated. 

And second, I want to give a huge thanks to all of you! More games that I have designed were played in 2021 than any other year. I think. It’s an estimation, but it looks that way!

Looking Forward to 2022

In 2021, I increased the amount of design time I spent on games. I had more fun because of it, and I think many of you benefits from the end results of those designs.

In 2022, I want to increase the amount of time I spend designing games even more! I think I have a solid plan in place which will allow me to complete even more ambitious designs. However, I still have a day job, and that’s not changing anytime soon. So, with any plans I lay, I want to add the caveat that any of these plans may change at any time.

With that said, here are my plans for 2022:

  • I want to create another expansion or two for Dwarf Mine (if you are interested, take this survey and let me know what I should focus on)
  • I want to start one of my more ambitious projects. I hinted at this during my stream at the Extra Life event (I stream super infrequently, but here is my twitch). I’m still struggling with how to start the project, because it won’t be done in a year…but playing it will still be fun with even 30% of the content included.
  • I’ll be publishing at least 1 free game – I try to do at least 1 of these a year
  • I want to write more reviews of vintage games and RPGs. In 2021, I realized that I rely heavily on obscure reviews of old products, and I would like to add to this growing body of knowledge.
