This week we’ve got a timely question from Nate Parker who asked this on twitter:

Do you participate in any boardgaming-related New Year’s resolutions (e.g. play 5×5 or 10×10, reduce pile of shame by X games this year, play certain games a certain number of times, no funding KS games, etc.)? Which ones & why, if so? If not, why not?
