Most every blog has its shtick, right? Well, here’s my conceived one, the Gauntlet. The goal here is to stimulate thoughtful assessment of a situation, a strategy, an idea, whatever it happens to be. You can’t look at things in a new way if you don’t ever try.
Gauntlet: In your next game you need to field a unit that you have never fielded. The reason for not having fielded that unit does not matter. It could be that you don’t own it yet (proxy as needed), or it just never seemed worthwhile to you. Field the unit and report your results, I’ll be doing the same.
I’m going to attempt to come up with one of these every week or every other week and post it up on a Friday. Then, when the next Gauntlet is posted we’ll post our results of the previous Gauntlet in that article. This will give you a deadline to accomplish the Gauntlet. I play every week at the LGS but I know some get to play a lot less frequently, so feedback on how often I should post these is appreciated.
