The first Nerdy Bookahs blog post appeared on March 12, 2011. The first postings were all about Rift, before I started writing about other games (most prominently Guild Wars 2, of course!). A lot has happened in these past few years. I started a new job, quit that job, started a new job, started another … Continue reading 7th Anniversary Giveaway for 5th Anniversary Snail in Rift!
Trion chose a perfect time to launch their Rift Prime server. The game originally launched in March 2011 - and this little blog here got started in March 2011 as well. This is not a coincidence, however, as Rift (and the upcoming Guild Wars 2) was the main content I wrote about at that point. … Continue reading Rift Prime and Nostalgia
5 years ago, I certainly was not expecting this little "blog project" to be running for such a long time. I did not even know whether it would last for longer than a month before I would lose interest. But here we are and the blog is as alive as it was back then. Let's … Continue reading 5 years of Nerdy Bookahs!
Since Rift and our blog are almost exactly the same age, I always get very nostalgic when I read about their anniversary preparations. As always I am looking forward to the Carnival of the Ascended, even though I am currently taking a break from playing Rift. I don't think I will manage to stay away … Continue reading 5 years of Rift…
On March 12, 2011, we started this very blog here. I did not think that we would still be around 4 years later. I also did not think that the content of the blog would stay this close to its original roots. :p 4 years ago, we started as "Nerdy Bookahs and their travel guide". … Continue reading 4 years of Nerdy Bookahs!

Our guild, Dragon Season, celebrated its first anniversary within Guild Wars 2 on Friday. Naive as I am, I volunteered to organize the event. I thought I'd put a few trivia questions together, give away 2 or 3 item skins, then a few unidentified dyes and be done with it. Being rather poor myself, I … Continue reading Recap: Dragon Season Beach Party 2013

Update, March 23: Comments are now closed. Winners will be drawn tomorrow, when I'm properly awake and not too tired. ;) It's been two years since we started our Nerdy Bookahs blog. Two years ago, I was playing Rift and Lotro, Guild Wars 2 had still been far away in the future. As the name … Continue reading 2 years of Nerdy Bookahs!
