Okay, so HotW is online. And so is Maharadja. And yes, Guess Who and Geistertreppe are kidsgames. Rummikub? Pft. Alexander? Solo. Hmpf.

No. I do not care. I've had a good gaming year. Not a great one, but who cares? I've been more careful in buying games; I did not care so much for all the New Games and I've got to play some nice, older games. I've had a good gaming year.

Hi! I'm Macaos. A cute, kind, sporty and fun Bearded Collie. I enjoy lying under the table when Macao is on the table.
mbmbmbmbmb
I'm quite pleased with the games I got to play last year. I've played some great new games, some old favorites and some descent kids games. Last year started quite slow, but I got to play more games as the year went bye. Hope that 2011 will be as good as 2010, or perhaps greater.

Total: 700, of them 78 were new to me.

New Game of the Year: Macao. Really enjoy this one. Plays well with 2, 3 and 4 players.

New Games in the Collection: 103 wow Ouch. Did not know I had bought that many games this year. I have still room for some more, but I have promised myself to sell/trade the games I don't care for.

2010 was a year of gaming drought it seemed. So many of the months I set new record lows in games played for me. Thankfully the games I have played have been exceptionally good. I can recall off the top of my head some really great gaming experiences all the way back to January. Frankly, it's hard to complain when I've just had so much FUN with the games I got to play. As for my most-played game of the year, It isn't even close. We Didn't Playtest This At All has absolutely amazed the teens at church, to the point where they request it every time we game together. Of course it's virtually impossible to just play this game once, so that also gives it a substantial boost. It is just such a light quick game that I will never allow to leave my collection. Here's my full list of Nickels and Dimes for the year:

DIMES

We Didn't Playtest This At All - 28
Start Player - 22
FITS - 17
Pickomino - 12
We Didn't Playtest This At All: Chaos Pack - 12
Forbidden Island - 10
Maori - 10
Piece o' Cake - 10
Wits & Wagers Family - 10

NICKELS

The Adventurers: The Temple of Chac - 9
Dominion - 9
Loopin' Louie - 9
Mmm ... Brains! - 9
Get Bit! - 8
PitchCar Mini - 8
The Downfall of Pompeii - 7
Pandemic - 7
Pandemic: On the Brink - 7
Alea Iacta Est - 6
Castle Panic - 6
Basari - 5
Dominion: Envoy Promo Card - 5
No Thanks! - 5
Phase 10 Dice - 5
Say Anything - 5
Uno Flip - 5
Vegas Showdown - 5

2010 was a down year for me. Total plays declined from 166 to 89, and titles played went down from 70 to 37. I attribute much of this to my employer scheduling some of my teaching assignments for the same night that my main gaming group meets. Still, if I'm willing to make the effort to host or suggest games with my friends, they're likely to say yes. I just need to do that more often.

Games I played at least twice in 2010:
Connect 4 x13 (one of my stepson's favorites)
Terrace x8 (new to me, thrift store purchase)
Glory to Rome x6 (new to me)
10 Days in Africa x5 (new to me, thrift store purchase)
Forbidden Island x5 (new to me)
No Thanks! x5
The Omega Virus x5 (new to me, thrift store purchase)
Wits & Wagers Family x3 (new to me)
Bananagrams x2
Celebrities x2
For Sale x2
Fresco x2 (new to me)
Lord of the Rings x2
Sorry! Sliders x2
Ticket to Ride x2
TransAmerica x2
UNO x2

Note: the above includes only games that were played in person with other people. I also played a few online games of Ghost Stories and Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization with a friend via VASSAL.

Total plays: 1,652 (up 239 from 2009)
Different games: 32 (up 10 from 2009)
New games: 11 (up 4 from 2009)

Looks like I added 11 games this year, while only getting rid of one (Fury of Dracula got traded for Thunderstone). Also seems Raw Deal is not only down 90 plays from 2009, missed the 1,000+ plays guess I made in last year's thread. Oh well, still plenty of sweaty man-action in there , as it has more than half the year's total tally.

Several oldies saw action, if only brief action during 2010. Space Crusade, Horus Heresy (the older version, just to get into the spirit in time for the new version) and Magic the Gathering.

Some favourites only got a few plays in, Arkham Horror only 8, Middle-Earth Quest only 10 (MEQ will return in 2010). Lord of the Rings saw only five plays and even Talisman "only" got 39 plays.

Cult of the new has a fairly solid spread throughout, Memoir, despite getting added only in April, topping their play list. But in terms of money per plays, Spider-Man is the king. Got it cheap from a BGGer in January, it saw heavy action until May, when the Memoir fever was at its "worst". Coming in third for the Cult of the New is A Touch of Evil. After getting added in March and seeing initial heavy playing, it resurfaced in October, heavily enough to claim bronze.

I played a LOT in 2010, on-line and FTF. My play number will look low though because I don't have many plays for quickies like Modern Art. Those two plays of Liberty Roads for example represent around 20 hours.

Just one note: World in Flames plays are per SESSION (3-4 hours). Why? Because when I joined BGG and started logging plays, that's how I did it. But for other games, it is for finished games. Or games that I started in 2010 but will finish in 2011...

At the beginning of the year I set a goal of averaging at least one play per day in 2010, and with a total number of plays at 372 I accomplished that with a little bit of room to spare.

Tsuro came out as the big winner in total plays which was no surprise. Games of it go super fast and it's great with non-gamers, so it has become our "go to" gateway game.

Best New Game of the Year, without question, goes to Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas, which also manged to take the second slot in total plays.

Here's the full list. Games marked in Red were new to me this year.

Oh no surprise which game I played the most. 47 games of Star Wars minis. Second was Warhammer 40,000 (fifth edition) with 24 plays. Then lots of games played just once or twice like Snow Tails, Carcassonne, King of Chicago, World Cup Game and SuperFooty.

I spent 100 geek gold and all I got was this lousy overtext.

I played BSG a whopping 22 times in 2010, 20 of which included Pegasus. As a result, the play numbers on most of my other games suffered. The number two slot goes to Solitaire ASL with only 7 plays. The rest of the numbers look kind of sad.

But since I had fun, I'm going to call this year a win regardless of how many plays each game got.
