I haven't had a Windows partition since 2002, and never will again.

I resisted Wine, WineX, Cedega, Crossover, etc. for a decade and a half. Valve has given up, and with that, my hope for Linux gaming. I don't expect very good results from Proton, but I'll give it a try with games I already own, and some old games that clearly won't ever be ported to Linux. I feel it's the beginning of the end, and I hope I'm wrong, but I'm a pessimist. May as well enjoy the ride down. If Valve won't fight this, what use am I to keep up the resistance? Maybe I'm just getting old, but I'm tired. If you can't beat 'em...

Fact is, the majority of my gaming time these days is taken up by designer board games. Not Monopoly and garbage like that. Actual good, even great, games. Food Chain Magnate, Battlestar Galactica, Viticulture, Whitehall Mystery, Clans of Caledonia, Robinson Crusoe, Runebound, Near and Far, Black Orchestra... Stuff like that. It's great! Way more social than online gaming, and there's something about the tactile nature of plastic and cardboard that is just great. Again, maybe I'm just getting old.

I don't play video games as much as I used to. I've rediscovered board games and have been avidly collecting and playing them since early 2016. Here's my top 10 favourites as of July 2021:

#1: Food Chain Magnate
#2: Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
#3: Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island
#4: Aeon's End
#5: Star Wars: Rebellion
#6: Xia: Legends of a Drift System
#7: Everdell
#8: Near and Far
#9: Clans of Caledonia
#10: Great Western Trail

I also don't get to play board games as much as I used to, mostly due to the pandemic. My other main hobby is 3D printing.
