TheDocket1Happy 2013 to all our readers! Here’s to another year of dogged analysis of the 40k tournament scene and in-depth discussions of the rules governing a fictional universe. 2013 Has been incredibly busy for me thus far, what with work, traveling to visit family and friends, tons of reader emails to answer, and of course the new Dark Angels codex to tear into. It’s shaping up to be a great year! This week’s docket includes some initial reactions to the new Dark Angels ‘dex, my thoughts on Guardians of Middle Earth on XBox, a word on the new Deck Pack for Duels of the Planeswalkers, and my trip to see The Book Of Mormon (The musical, not the actual book) in Chicago.

While the real world has been particularly hectic recently, it has definitely been a good week or two for games.

As the title suggests, Merry Christmas! Yes, I realize it’s after Christmas now, but as I’ve been traveling all over the place visiting friends and family, this is the soonest I could get this up. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and got lots of toy soldiers for Christmas!

Following GK’s lead, I figured I would fill everyone in. But first, to answer the question, where’s the 40k stuff?

Here is my problem: I CAN’T PICK AN ARMY!

Ever since 6th edition hit, I have been proxying, substituting, listbuilding, mathhammering, and lore-mastering more armies than I care to admit. I will go into this soon, and explain what I see as the “paralysis factor” that the possibility of allies can cause for list-builders. But that’s not this!  So read on to see what I’m up to this week.

Welcome to our newest series, The Docket.  Back in September of 2011 when we made our first return from a long hiatus, we promised to bring you more content on ”the Rules Lawyers as gamers”, intending to keep you, our readers, apprised as to what we’re up to.  We wanted to give some insight into our gaming lives beyond just the tournament reviews and the dry, lengthy rules discussions we (occasionally) produce.  That was partly the result of meeting and getting to know some great people at Gamesday 2011.  It was also partly in response to some emails we’d received in our absence, asking about things like what armies we’re playing, what armies we’re working on, what tournaments we’re going to/judging, and other things like what videogames we play, whether we’re on XBox or PS3, etc.  We’ve continued to get these kinds of questions from time to time ever since.  Unfortunately, aside from the occasional “Building the Case” article, we haven’t really done much to address those questions.  And as we’ve mentioned before, we want to be your rules lawyers.  That means we want our content to be driven by what our readers want to see.  No sense in writing something nobody wants to read.
