    Dave, thank you for all you have done to help foster and grow this fledgling community. Meeting you at Origins is directly related to the growth of our community in Northwest Ohio. Best of luck in whatever you seek. Hope to hang out at Origins again next year!

    Dave, hanging out with you, Gene, and Isaac at Origins was one of the highlights for me as well. I enjoyed the DM tournament, but going 2-3 in the qualifier was an adrenaline rush. Ev er ything else I did that week was gaming fun. I am sad to hear that you are leaving TRP. Your passion for the game brought much of this community together. Many of us will still be here when and if you come back. Have fun gaming!

    Thank you @Dave for all the work you did to create The Reserve Pool. I started listening early on, way back when it was just you, Katie, and Evan talking about the game. I'm really sorry to see you go, hope you will return, and hope nothing but the best for you and your family. Enjoy your adventures.

    You built something great here @Dave . It will be here when you come back.

    I totally get it.
    I recently did the same thing with Netrunner.
    Never thought I would, but I ended up selling off my collection and walking away.
    It just stopped being fun and felt more like work.
    I miss it sometimes, but the friends I got in the process are great.
    Thank you for all of your hard work, contributions, and creating something awesome!
    And hey, drop by every once in a while just to let us know how you are doing.

    I think @Basementcuts has said it best already. Whether the game ever pulls you back in or not, you can be proud knowing that you created something amazing, and we're all beyond thankful for it. Best of wishes to you, your family and your future endeavors.

    After playing a supremely tedious War of Light game where no player had meaningful purchases left and both teams just kind of walled up and traded superfluously, I'm feeling you. But then there are those wonderful matches where the game ebbs and flows like you'd like, so I'm still in it.

    You've done some amazing work here Dave. This was my first real foray into gaming and to find this site and listen to those first few podcasts, I knew I was in for a good time. Thanks for everything.

    Thank you for everything you have done for everyone here at The Reserve Pool, just out of curiousity, what does this mean for the Pro Dice Circuit?

    Isaac, who has sees Joel regularly in person, will be picking up where Dave leaves off with the PDC. We are happy and excited to continue working with the awesome idea, and look forward to the first official announcements.

    Wish I could give you a shake of the hand and a man hug @Dave .

    You created something, here, and with the podcast, that you should be proud of.

    hey Dave. I'm sure this decision has not been easy. To me, and im sure others too, you have been an inspiring voice for dice Masters. I have listened to the podcast from the beginning, watched your videos, and heard you on dice tower showdown advocating this game.

    And while it is sad to see you leave your position. I do agree there are a tremendous amount of quality games out there among dicemasters: King of Tokyo, SmashUp, Pandemic, Cosmic Encounter etc. This is a fantastic hobby to be in and dicemasters is tiny to the amount there is to explore.

    But may I make a suggestion, I missed the old segments when you discussed the games you had been playing whether it be dicemasters or something else. Why not bring that back? You keep your voice on the site and still be a presence with a segment called "The Out of Play Area". I suspect you got bored of focusing everything on one game, and this way it can feel more casual than pressure. If it turns out that the game you have been playing is dicemasters then great. More content for those more hardcore.

    I'll second @Shapeshifter 's sentiment.

    If you are burned on the game, but not the community and podcast, I hope you will still contribute a segment in some way. I'd love to hear what else you are playing. One of my favorite segments on The Dice Tower is listening to Tom and Eric briefly discuss recent games and their impressions of them. Not full reviews, but quick opinions. Be cool to still hear your voice.

    @Dave : these suggestions at bringing you back for a brief segment about other games you are playing is fantastic. I hope that you and @RJRETRO consider it!

    Hey @Dave - Hamburgers!

    Gonna miss you, thanks for helping us learn to love this game

    I don't know about a segment. I've thought about a board gaming podcast for a while though. There's a lofty one I'd like to do that I've started the ground work on. But something just discussing games... I'd like it but I don't know how to add something different from what Dice Tower does with their audio.

    Thanks for all your support and work for this community on TRP and outside! I hope you find new inspirations and even more joy outside the DM Box.

    You remind me, that i came from board games to DM, because it has dice to roll on the table. And i took less time for my boardgames as usual.

    I think i will follow your example, but i the way to do as much for DM as for Boardgames.

    @Dave I love what you have built here and hate to see you step away from the community. I can only imagine that time you have spent putting TRP together. With that said... who says the content you put out has to be weekly? I would rather have less Dave than no Dave.

    I am sure by this time my input is pointless... it's just sad to see what I consider the voice of DM leave. I encourage you to do what ever makes you happy and selfishly I hope that doing that finds you back here.

    I've listened to the podcast since the very early days. TRP has always been an upbeat and positive force in the Dice Masters community. The enthusiasm and positive attitude made me an instant fan. I'm sure you hear it all the time but thanks for all of your hard work.

    I'd like to be out there discussing board gaming - stay tuned there - but it's not about contribution, it's about continuing with the game. I'm burned out on DM, not just covering it.

    I really appreciate all the responses. I'm really touched. Thank you all!

    Best wishes in your future endeavors, Dave. I've been where you are several years ago with another game, but be assured, a part of you will always be with this game and with the wonderful website devoted to it that you helped create.

    Deepest regards and sincerest gratitude.

    sorry i'm late on commenting.
    @Dave , I'm sad to see you stepping away from the dice masters. Thanks for all the work you have put into TRP and dice masters in general. If you come back sometime, we will be here.
