That seems to happen a lot when I’m talking, actually.

It’s obvious that fatigue is an on-going problem in our society.

Anyway, with nine “new to me” games on the list, my pal David over at Roll to Review should be happy.

So without further adieu (all of my adieu was taken by some dwarf and used to forge some stupid hammer named Mjölnir anyway), let’s get started!
