We played Midnight Party over midnight, then went to bed. The first game the next day was Magic the Gathering (most days start with Magic the Gathering when we have those particular friends over!).

Thanks to a nasty cold my wife and I both have been fighting over the holidays, there were no games on New Year's Day. Yesterday we were a bit better and she suggested Defenders of the Realm. She took the wizard and I chose the ranger. An awesome, epic game ensued, the longest I've ever played of Defenders. We eventually had three generals down but the time it took with the third (who defeated us several times before we took him out) permitted the Orc minions to multiply across the board. A loss but a very satisfying game.

This is the first time I've ever played Settlers* and my wife and daughter really loved it. I have never seen them get so frustrated in a game - not getting the resources they need, having the robber parked on their best resource tile, etc. I thought this might be the first time one of them would throw the board!

* Okay, I have played the Settlers card game and Catan on my iPod...

We got together with some friends and got completely spanked by this game!! Only made it to the 3rd room before we ran out of tokens

After that we flung some Poo: The Card Game.

My wife and me played our very first game of Dungeonquest on New Year's Day, and we had a blast even when we both had gruesome deaths. Krutzbeck the berserker dwarf, played by her, was killed by a trap that released poisonous snakes after a long harrowing trip through the Catacombs, while Lindel the elf (moi), loaded with loot (5100) was killed by nasty razorwings just two chambers away from the exit... Man, this is a killer dungeon indeed! Lots of fun.

I got this for Christmas, but hadn't gotten a chance to try it out. Finally gave it a run through yesterday as things quieted down. The game ran pretty smoothly on the first go, though the two player match wasn't all that ideal. Still, now that we have our feet wet I'm really looking forward to giving it a go with a crowd.

We started at 11.47, and got through three turns (with rules explanation) before midnight struck. A seven player game, which was trounced by the Outlaws, due mostly to one Vice being imprisoned twice, then blowing up via dynamite, followed by the Renegade (me) accidentally murdering the second. A violent, reckless game, just the way a New Year should start!

A quick game with my girlfriend. It was the third time I've played and I almost won as Jack (so far the detective is 3/3 in our games).

It was followed by pizza, a game of Thebes and some apple tart. A fine January 1 evening.
