A Prediction

In five years' time, the emergence of the Old School Renaissance (or whatever it's supposed to be called this week), and it's inspiration to semi-pro publishing, will be named as an important reason why gaming stores have survived turbulent times.

Soon after this fact starts getting bounced around (which will be hotly disputed by everyone that had spent the past five years rolling to disbelieve and telling us that all this retro stuff was sinking the hobby and killing everything the whole time), the trend will go into free-fall, so all the disbelievers can argue that it never amounted to much in the first place.


  1. Hmm.
    And this is predicated upon..?

  2. Knowledge of some upcoming as-yet-unannounced developments and wishful thinking.

  3. I'm going to blame the inevitable collapse on the Magic the Gathering retroclone.
