After launching New Year, New Game in 2012 and running it twice, in 2012 and 2013, I’ve decided to close it down. There will not be a NYNG event in 2014.

Around the start of this year I stepped back and took a look at everything I had on my plate, and in considering NYNG I realized that it didn’t offer much in the way of a return on my time investment. I don’t mean that to diminish the contributions anyone made to NYNG, as the game ideas and blog posts written for NYNG were the best part of it, just that it doesn’t make sense for me to keep doing all the administrative stuff I had to do to run it.

I will archive the NYNG entries and links somewhere, most likely here on Gnome Stew. I’m still working that part out.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to NYNG, including readers, GMs, sponsors, and bloggers.

In its place, I’m launching something new this month — similar in some ways, different in others, and a leaner, tighter concept overall. From an administrative standpoint, the workload is deliberately light. I believe it has a lot of potential, and I hope you like it!

I’ll post the announcement here as soon as it goes live. Thanks for reading!
