2018 in review

Happy 2019, everyone! With a new year upon us, it is a good time to review the past year at PAXsims.

First off, we are happy to report that we had our most successful year yet, with some 60,127 visitors and 119,628 page views. That brings us up to a total of 702,535 views since the project was launched ten years ago in January 2009.

The largest share of our views continue to come from the United States (46%), UK (12%), and Canada (9%). However, viewers from China now comprise a larger and larger share, now representing the fifth largest group of visitors. All told we had visitors from 179 different countries and territories, including East Timor and Chad.

We had 119 posts on the website in 2018. The post popular posts from the past year were our recent review of the iOS game Rebel Inc, MAJ Cole Peterson’s account of the Sea Dragon wargaming competition at Marine Corps University, our report on the WATU wargame, an overview of Dstl’s STRIKE! battlegroup tactical wargame, and the PAXsims report on the Connections UK 2018 professional wargaming conference. Our all-time most popular piece is on the wargaming Wrens of the Western Approaches Tactical Unit, as well as our resource pages on AFTERSHOCK and the Matrix Game Construction Kit.

Brian Train remains our most prolific commenter on posts, and hence is once again recipient of the annual Golden PAXsim award.
