A question for one and all. I was just entering another title read in my book journal as I began another year of the record. I have been keeping this journal since 1991 when I was discharged from the Marines. I have faithfully recorded books read in a year for 23 years so far. I was struck with the thought of doing something similar for my military games.

Does anyone keep a journal of games completed or just played? How does that look? Is it better to NOT have a record of time spent with the sweet obsession?

www.goodreads.com. You can track your reads, friends reads, preferences and bits like that. I use it to track my history reading.  It might be a bit much for someone like yourself who has decades of reading done. 

Also check this out: http://www.yasiv.com/
you type in a book you own or want to own to see what Amazon has recommended  to others. It is a visualization tool.

As for the notes - it detailed as the game deserves it. Lots of fun and action in OCS. Plus I wanted to do a decent job journaling my Chronological play of WWII here: Link to example .

Just a "little" note taking. WOW Kev I am impressed.

I have not seen or heard of  Goodreads.

Just a little note taking and self tracking for OCS DAK2.
I vary my approach all the time.
Sometimes just images are enough if the story is good.
I record all my plays, and post them on my blog in one way or another.
So get started. Oh and have you seen Goodreads?

vwgti is correct, we do  similar records:

Thanks for the input gentlemen. Love the pictures too. I am looking to start recording my gaming this year in the hopes it keeps me on my Morley-inspired resolution of gaming more this year.

I do of sorts. Every game I play is entered into a notepad that I have, and the information I write down is normally a grid with the various phases in the sequence of play against the turn numbers - this way I can keep a log as to what point I am at during a game. I also write down notes about each turn and what each side has done, and tie this up with pictures on my camera (I date & time the entries in my book so I can match them with the pictures I take).

I find it quite helpful doing this, not only when playing, but also to look back and see the history of what I have played.

If I have been really clever (does not happen very often!), I may have made notes for when I play it the next time, with regards to mistake I have made, errors in the rules or maybe adjusting the rules slightly if there is an unclear rule somewhere.
