GEEK PIN-UP OF 2020(based on number of page hits):
GEEK MOMENTS OF THE YEAR:
"Wishes Do Come True"
(A) For the longest time I had bemoaned the fact that my gaming group, The Tuesday Knights, would only meet up once a month. Now, as a positive side effect of the global pandemic, we're forced to play online (via Zoom) and my fellow gamers - finding their calendars suddenly empty - are open to playing fortnightly, speeding up our progress through Simon's epic 5e Dungeons & Dragons campaign.
Going virtual has also allowed Meredith - who moved to New Zealand several years ago - to re-join the game, playing the same character she played in my old Heroes & Other Worlds campaign. Which is rather cool!
(B) It seems strange to list announcements of things to come in the next few years as a "moment of 2020", but the unexpected deluge of big reveals from Disney last month - about the future of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Star Wars Universe - felt like the fillip this geek needed after a most peculiar year.
I am a kid again... and just hope I can stay healthy long enough to enjoy all these treats being promoted.
