Stunningly beautiful area-influence game. Thought I might have the winning strategy but I didn't. The game has been on my mind ever since.

I also played RFTG, Cluzzle and a few fillers for the first time this month.

While I enjoyed RFTG, I know its a game I will play many, many times in the future and I may not have the same chance with El Capitan.

Cluzzle was a blast.

Unless memory is failing me, this was the only new game I played in January. It was good fun, but I'm sorta suspecting it will not have much longterm appeal.

Going to put in a vote for Silent War since I started a full campaign game after purchasing the game via pre-order and getting it in late December.

Also played for the first time:
Tikal
Agricola
Aton
Race for the Galaxy

All games I found fun and would play again.

I think this was the only new game I played in January. In some ways it hardly counts, because I've played at least eight other games in the "crayon rails" family. I gave it to my wife for Christmas, and she played it over New Years, but I didn't get to play until part way through the month. My wife is even a bigger fan of the series than me, and she won both her first game and my first game.

I notice that there are a number of other "crayon rails" games in this GeekList.
