We hope it was a good one!
2022 was an exhausting year, and we could use a bit of respite before we head into the great unknown of 2023. As is our yearly tradition, we figured we’d check in with the community and see how everyone’s Christmas is going.
As for me, friends of the family picked us up the Super Nintendo Entertainment System ornament from Hallmark, which is going next to our Minecraft one. My wife grabbed me an accompanying Raccoon Mario ornament, as well as a few goodies for my ever-growing tabletop collection. The little bands on the bottom of the header image are for keeping open board game boxes shut, and the case at the top is a Quiver: for holding game cards. I gifted myself a red DualSense PS5 controller earlier this week on sale, since we could use a third one for our kid.
I’ve been playing a lot of Marvel Champions, Arkham Horror: The Card Game, and Lord of the Rings: The Card game this year, so both of those accessories will come in handy. Video game-wise we’ve been playing a lot of couples games lately, including the recently-released Escape Academy DLC, as well as Operation Tango.
There’s a lot of opportunities to clean up on some video game-related gifts this year, but the tabletop industry is adjacent enough to share if you want! Merry Christmas Destructoid!
