I didn't get to play until yesterday. We played a game of Shadows over Camelot before diving into a 4 player game of Twilight Imperium (Third Edition). It was all good.

We had a couple of friends over for New Year's Eve; we crossed the threshold playing Settlers of America. Had a good time, it turns Catan into more of a gamer's game (I know that's a wanker term, but you know what it means).

I started this decade off with a sequel to a game from the last millennium, Tikal II. It is a good game with a different feel to it from the previous mask series games (Tikal, Java and Mexica).

Our last game of 2010 was very first game of Glory to Rome! Our first game of 2011 was our second game of Glory to Rome!

This was our first game using the building abilities. Man, this is a fun game. At the beginning of the games I feel a bit overwhelmed by possibilities. After a few turns it goes pretty quickly. I believe my wife and I currently have about 4 long pauses on our turn (or following) per game, which is a lot better than the first several games.

Had a friend from EPGS over and I taught him how to play Roads and Boats. Including teaching the game, the session was about 6 hours and we didn't finish. Much of that has to do with our decision to do the movement phase in turn order instead of simultaneously and we spent a good amount of time discussing strategy. All in all, a great way to kick off 2011 gaming! The myriad of choices with Roads and Boats fascinates me. At this stage (only a handful of plays) I prefer taking time, discussing strategy and exploring the game cooperatively (not necessarily playing the game cooperatively) and not finishing the game over curbing table talk, making our moves simultaneously and finishing the game within a reasonable amount of time.

An enjoyable game of Pillars with wife Barbara and brother-in-law Mike. Won by Mike by 1 point over me and two points over Barb. Decided on last possible play when I sold 3 Blues for 15. Then being the only one in the market, buying Wood, Stone, and Sand in sufficient quantity to score 5 extra points when I needed 6 to tie.

We had just playedMerchants & Marauders for the first time the night before and had a fun time but I didn't realize how good until my wife asked to play it again the next day (Jan 1). I had bought the game with Christmas money as a present for myself believing I'd only get to play it occasionally, but that all changed when I realized my wife had loved it.

I'm ashamed to say that with holiday traveling, illness, and general business, it took me this long to get to my first game of 2011, which was also my gift from my BGG Secret Santa! I had a blast playing a solo game to learn the rules (and using the Doom Track variant). I'm looking forward to playing this one a lot more in the future!

Heard a lot about this game here on the geek and jumped at a chance to play when offered. Not very complicated, but branching out is essential. The traitor aspect is probably the best mechanic, since no battle is ever a foregone conclusion.

Bidding is extremely difficult when up against the race that can look at each item as it comes up for bid.

A five-player game, an alliance of three against an alliance of two.
Probably better with an even number of players to prevent the majority rules end-game; although, the minority faction very nearly won it at one point.

For the first time in years we were asleep by 12:01 on New Years but managed to get a game of Power Grid played onthe night of the first. Glad I played such a great game as my first for 2011, means that this might be the start to a GREAT year! Since 2010 ended with a game of Five Crowns... Which was actually a fun game to wind down at the end of the year. And meant we were home by 9:00 (hence getting to sleep so early).

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!
mbmbmbmbmb
This is a late entry.
Played on 7th January 2011.

Played this with a friend who was a 1st timer to this game. We played the 1st firefight as I've only read the rulebook up to 7.7, which qualify us to play only the 1st firefight.

I've played the 1st firefight solo before, and if I remember correctly, the Russia managed to fortify their stronghold. With units more than the Germans, I've expected this will happen. Russian won by victory points until the last round.

Shockingly, for the session with my friend, I've lost playing as the Russian. He played very calmly, and although it's his 1st time, he managed to actually killed all my units, in under 5 rounds! To others, it may seems normal but I've only have a handful of play of this game and to me that was a huge surprise. He was actually very close to occupy the stone buildings.

Plus in some of his moves, he managed to get into hexes that is just beside my unit! Luckily, all these units in this game cannot do close combat. I wonder what will happen if they do.

Now, I blame for my bad roll and my poor unit management
