I like to play games. But, how much? Enough to play 366 games in 366 days?

We'll see if I'm up to the challenge.

What are my rules?

d10-1 I do not have to play one each day. I just have to play 366 games between January 1st, 2012 and December 31st, 2012.

d10-2 These cannot be plays on any digital device.

d10-3 These can be solo games. In fact quite a few might be. I enjoy solo games, however I expect more to be played with others.

d10-4 These can be any board/card games. I have a 6 year old daughter and if we play a game of Mouse Trap or Go Fish that counts just as much as a game of Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) with the guys.

d10-5 These do not have to be different games. I do not plan on abusing the playing of a game over and over, but why restrict myself from playing my favorites multiple times

d10-6 I can add more rules as times go on, however the basic goal is always to be "366 games in 366 days".

d10-7 1/7/12 Update: changed from 365 in 365 to 366 in 366 due to the leap year.

Feel free to join me on this journey and cheer me on or taunt me along the way.

Games #1 & #2

Yes, I realize my first 2 games of the year aren't quite "Gamer's Games", but you know what? I don't care. I wouldn't trade the time with my wife and 6 year old daughter for any "Gamer Game" out there(now if I can just get them to play more "Gamer Games )

We played twice on January 3rd and had a great time. This really is a fun game and my wife and I are amazed at the stuff our daughter asks.

Status Update: 3 days in, 2 games played.

Got to play a 3 player game on the medium difficulty and pulled it out with only 1 space remaining on the time track. Close one.

Fun game. They definitely could have added some additional flavor and graphics to some of the cards, but still an enjoyable game.

Got to try a couple games of this. I absolutely love it. Great theme, game play was fun. This immediately goes into my want list.

First game was the family version so we could get the hang of the rules. We won, but the house was close to destruction. Very fun.

2nd game. We tried with the experienced rules. I liked the game even more. We ended up losing due to the house collapsing, but at least I was on the outside sitting in the engine devil So,I have to mourn the loss of my fellow firefighters, but at least I lived.

And yes, I know I still lost even though I lived, but it was a fun little personal victory. And before you say what we're you doing outside, I was a driver.

Jan 4th Update: 5 games in 4 days. I'm ahead of schedule.

I know. Again? Definitely a favorite of my wife's. And my daughter likes it too. It's a lot of fun watching her mind work as she plots her route. I say route and not routes, because at this point she is very focused once she knows the route she wants. One of these times her and daddy will end up with routes that cross and we'll see how flexible she can be.

Jan 8th Update: 10 games in 8 days. We'll see how this week goes.

It really was just a matter of time. The daughter loves this one and we both enjoy "taunting" each other when we steal each other's cheese.

In typical fashion the mouse trap did not work the first three times we turned the crank but that's part of the fun right?

Played a solo game tonight. My awesome friends pitched in and for my birthday made me a kickstarter backer of this project. It has given me the chance to be a play tester as well. I have some good friends.

Can't really give away much, but I played against The Chairman and he kicked my butt. Fun times.

When I play solo, I use generally use 4 heroes. This is what I did here and the losing crew was Mr. Fixer, Bunker, The Wraith, and Expatriette.

Jan 10th Update: 12 games in 10 days. Still going strong.

Got to play this for the first time. I really enjoy the first set, so I was quite anxious to try the expansion. And it did not disappoint. There is something that just clicks for me with this game. I enjoy the multiple things that are going on(buying cards, doing missions, battle, etc). Normally I get a grasp on deck building games pretty quick, but for whatever reason just when I think I've figured this one out I'm wrong.

Yes the rulebook is a mess and there are some finicky rules, but I enjoy it.

Can't wait to play it with combined sets.

Hmmm, 1 hour left. What should we play? Flash Point fit the bill perfectly. We had fun, got lucky with no trolling hotspots,and we won quite easily. In fact were secured all 10 guests. Go us!!!

and I sat down and played with 2 new attendees and had a great time. We even had the local newspaper stop by and snap some pictures and ask some questions. My 6 year old thinks I'm famous now.

Jan 17th Update: 15 games in 17 days. I'm falling behind. Luckily the 20th is another game nite. We'll see if I can catch up some.

So, my friend Kirby came by in what we joking referred to as Snopocalypse(we got hit with a lot of snow in a short period of time) and we played a few games.

First was Summoner Wars. I've only played a few times before, but I have enjoyed it. This time was no different. He was the sand goblins and I wad the shadow elves(forgive me if I messed up the names). This was a game where he had the answer to every move I made. Sometimes it happens. Still liked it and would easily play more.

Next we played the Ascension. Not a huge fan of the artwork of the series, but the gameplay is fun for what it is. I enjoy the game much more as a 2 player game rather than four, but if the amount of plays I have on my iPad mean anything, I must really like it ,

Oh who won? Kirby.

Just got my own copy of this one and couldn't wait to get it to the table. So, before I had some friends over I thought I would teach my daughter. We played the family version and she loved it! I was a little worried since this is the first game I had ever taught her a game with action points. But she grasped it right away and had a great old' time. My friends stopped by and we just let them jump in.

End result?

House collapses after we had saved 6 people(well, 5 people and a cat). Poor house, but extremely happy to play and can't wait to play more.

We enjoy our LOTR and we play for fun. This might explain why we got our butts handed to us. We don't play often enough to really tweak our decks, but we keep trying

For some crazy reason we decided to random which scenario we would do. We ended up playing the last scenario in this set. Doomed from the beginning, but hung on longer than we thought. Still had fun though!

Got this one for Christmas, but finally had the time to get this one to the table. A long game and we played with all the expansion rules. Absolutely loved it. I enjoy just playing it. We talked about how great it was that halfway through the game we all were playing differently. The game ended with me ending as the Arabs, with the Americans and Russians etched poised to win on the next round.

Great game!

Update: Jan 27th, 21 games played. Need to catch up quick!

Looks like my daughter is happy to help me get some games in today. Just picked this one up after having played it on bsw years ago. Fun filler game that I think most people would enjoy. She loved it. Didn't hurt that she beat dear old dad 3-2.

Next time we get mom to play devil

Another 2 player "family rule" version. We won!! What did dad learn? Well, my daughter has little to no interest in actually putting out fires cool That means I get to do the dirty work of keeping the fires down and try to keep the building from collapsing while she gets the glory of saving the victims. Good times.

Can dad teach his 6 year old the full version? Well, he sure can! She may not understand all the intricacies of the rules, but as long as I'm there to guide her along we are golden. I let her pick her specialist and no surprise she picked the "Rescue Specialst". I randomly ended up with the "CAFS Firefighter" which by the style of play I've found she likes ended up being perfect.

We won! I of course did not rescue a single person as I was tasked with attempting to control the fires.

Man, I love this game and I love playing with my daughter!

Wife got home from work and we all got to play. First time for my wife and she loved it!(I figured she would). She looked a little disappointed when she asked if we were going to play another when our daughter reminded her that she promised her some Lego time. Mommy won and I can definitely see her requesting some quick games of this in the future.
