My top five games from 2014:

1) La Granja - An amazing euro game that hits on all cylinders for me
2) Pandemic: The Cure - All of the tension of Pandemic with some push-your-luck added in for fun
3) Istanbul - Definitely deserving of the Kennerspiel
4) Five Tribes - I really enjoy the decisions in this one and the production is incredible
5) Planes - A quick mancala game with multi-use cards that makes for some great decisions.

Bullseye Round! If you correctly guess the most popular answer, you get 10 points (instead of 1 point per matching answer). All other answers get nothing!

My annual 365 plays in 365 days challenge; this one will probably increase next year as I expect this is no longer a challenge for me. In 2016 it will probably be a 500 game challenge.


2014 version completed in December. I played 386 games

Over the previous 5 years, I'm averaging 100.4 plays a year with a high of 142 plays in 2013 and a low of 66 in 2011.

With 55 plays so far this year, I'm on pace to slightly exceed the average.

How do you feel about the last year overall, gamingwise? Was it good, was it bad? Was it everything you wanted? Did you play the games you wanted? Did you buy the games you wanted? If you had to put the year into three words, what would they be?

Sorry Shane, but I am not prepared to play the word association game you offer this week. 2013 was a rough year. But I do want to offer some conversation. So I am going to do a 2013 retrospective below...

January - March: This was a rough period for me. In January my mother passed away. Dad followed in February. To be honest, I am still adjusting to this.

Due to my need to deal with family matters my gaming really suffered during this time period. I missed multiple regular sessions and one of our game retreats. This meant the gaming I did get was even more valued. I am a person of routines, and just being with friends around a game table was comforting.

Games that caught my attention included:
Ruhrschifffahrt 1769-1890 - I played this one out.

Trains - Due to the theme, I finally tried a Dominion-like game. I found out I really like this game.

1830 - One of my rare "10" ratings. Still love it.

Snowdonia - I like this game, enough to still own it, but I think the weather rules might need some tweaking.

Locomotive Werks - I only got one play of this before it disappeared. But I would like to try it again.

Mali Powstańcy: Warszawa 1944 - I think I spent more time prepping this game than I ever did playing it. I like the unusual theme (running messages in Nazi-controlled Warsaw). But even with my extensive play aids, I found the game play difficult and not nearly as satisfying as just playing Merchants of Venus.

April - June: The highlight of this period was my first ever attendance of Alan Moon's Gathering of Friends. It was a powerful experience! I met a lot of gamers I had not seen ever, or not seen in many years. I tend to keep my gaming in New Mexico, so usually my gaming relationships are through the keyboard. So this was real treat to cross paths with so many people I knew electronically.

Games from this time period:
Bullfrog Goldfield - I am still interested by this design. It is a demanding game to learn and to play. But it also has some real swingy luck. This probably ought to bug. But it is simulating the life and death of boomtowns. So the luck seems appropriate to me. Not sure how many people are really interested in playing it with me though.

Trains - I played this game a lot at the Gathering. It was about the only new game I could teach, and lots of people were wanting to try it.

Arctic Scavengers - I was introduced to this at the Gathering, and was fascinated by the post-apocolytic theme. I bought a copy in hopes my wife (who loves these sorts of tv shows) might be enticed to play. Nope. But I've enjoyed a fair number of games. I might now be done though.

Entenrallye - One real highlight at the Gathering was playing some older, generally unloved, games with Joe Huber and Mark Jackson. Both Entenrallye and Oswald Lord's Game of Politics were extremely fun events.

1846 - My love of 18xx games was in force. I enjoyed a play of 1846 at the Gathering with Joe Rushannon and Michael Tsuk. back home I enjoyed a revisitation to 1860: Railways on the Isle of Wight with local friends.

Big Boss - I am often the guy who suggests the forgotten game. But Big Boss was a game that my game club began to request. It is a great game. But it is also a game that handles 6 players well, and it comes in a box that demands attention from the shelf.


July - September:

Games of note:
Hanabi - I got a copy after being exposed to this at the Gathering. We played it several times over July 4th weekend. I played it a few more times after that. But I ultimately decided I do not need this game in my collection. But I would play if requested.

7 Wonders - I still own my copy. But I am tired of this game. But friends keep requesting it. So I play it a fair bit.

Monster Factory - I introduced this game to a friend, who just adored it. She is a ceramic painter and is in the process of making tile versions of the game tiles, just so she can decorate her home with them! I played this quite a lot over the summer with her. After she bought her own copy of the game, I let mine go...

Fortress America - A friend grabbed this off the prize table a while back. And since I was the one to put it on the prize table, I was also interested in giving it a try. We played a couple of times. I enjoyed the older version years ago. Still basically the same game. Still fun. But I am content to play with my friend when the chances come up.

Helvetia - We played this a few times, and generally had fun with this title. But it fell into a second tier of games for me. So I decided to let my copy go.

Medina - Another older title I added back into my library this year. And another case where the game club started requesting it!


October - December: Sadly my beloved brother-in-law passed away around Thanksgiving. While this didn't jostle my schedule as much as my parent's passings earlier in the year, it did cast a pall on the holidays.

Game highlights:

Indonesia - My second go at this well-loved title. I guess this game is just not for me. I just found it annoying. I don't understand the game mechanisms, and how I am to use them to enact a plan. Then the graphic and component design seems to get in the way of play. I think I might get better at this game with more tries. But I already have 18xx, and I'd rather apply myself to becoming a better player of that system.

Time's Up! - In October my wife and I went on a week-long houseboat crusie with a group of 8 other people. They were a nest of Mah Johnng players, but in a style I had not played before. But I was the only "gamer" on board. With the large crew and limited space, it turned out that only Time's Up was a viable game for evening entertainment. Great fun. But I need a long break from this game.

Merchant of Venus (second edition) - I decided I wanted to explore the new version of MoV. (I just turned in my article to Gamers Alliance.) It was interesting. To give it a good side by side analysis, I arranged to play both the original game and the reprint with most any group I could talk into playing. Reactions were mixed. I come down on the side of the original. But I would agree to play the revised game if that was what was happening around me.

Nieuw Amsterdam - Larry Levy taught me this game at the Gathering. After thinking about it for a few months, I decided I wanted to explore it further and got a copy. The game club really embraced this title, and now soundly beat me at it every chance they get. I'm a bit tired of it, but it remains in high rotation.

Trick of the Rails - A friend in Japan arranged to sell me her copy of this unusual game. It really is 18xx: the cardgame. I am quite taken with it, and want to play more. Handy that it plays in 15 minutes or so.

Don Q. und der Dreh mit den Windmühlen - Our own Joe agreed to sell me a spare copy he had of this game. I've been getting lots of people to try it. I am having a lot of fun with this game.

Crokinole



So that was my year of gaming. It was a tough year personally, but my gaming hobby was a source of joy through the rough times. I look forward to a kinder 2014.

100% complete, and purchased in hopes that I can trade it away, lol. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but if it ends up a nice game, I'll probably keep it. Either way, it was at a good price enough to gamble.

I can't remember how much it was, but the 5 games we purchased all cost less than $15 together. (Separate stores, naturally.)

100% Complete and in great condition. Haven't played yet, so I couldn't tell you how good or great a game it is. This is the 1997 version shown in this picture:
http://boardgamegeek.com/image/176470/game-of-the-year

I'm fairly open as to what I might trade for, as my wishlist doesn't cover what I haven't seen. I'm easy to please, so hopefully we can find something to swap for.

If interested, just let me know, and I'll look through what you have and see if we can't make a deal.

How much longer, in minutes, is Earth's anomalistic year than its tropical year? (The tropical year is what we normally think of as the year - a complete cycle of the seasons. The anomalistic year is the time it takes to come back to the same spot in the elliptical orbit around the sun.)

Some games are definitely more valued by the community than others. They appear with astonishing regularity, and more impressively, garner a good deal of thumbs every time they do. When applying the Thrifty Formula to games, it is possible to determine the Best Game Of The Year for the thrift community. And that game is:

This is a tough call. At first, I thought Goa would be a slam dunk, no brainer. After thinking some more though, I'm going to go with

Troyes



I've played a few table games, and a few on Boardgame arena and looking over all of my top games for the month - it's interesting to pick a game that didn't win the month. I think it's a dead heat between Troyes and Goa - but the fact that I've been able to play Troyes a few more times puts it over the top.

What was the best new game you played in 2011 and why?

You can answer separately for games published in 2011 and new-to-you games in 2011 if they're different.

The voting is currently open for the Golden Geeks and we often see a flurry of game awards every year (the biggest of which is the Spiel des Jahres). How do you feel about them? Do they factor in your decision at all whether to try a game? Are there some awards that are better than others?

Tuesday's auction was run in the Lampeter room. During this time I spent most of my efforts playing Lords of Baseball in open gaming. During this time I also realized that I needed a better box for my prototype copy.

I went down to the auction store and picked this up (in shrink for $2) for the box. I emptied out the inside and found a really cool component. This thing:




I have no idea what it's for, but I had a fun time spinning it.

The game box size is ideal for what I needed too.

1) If you could pick one game to play exclusively with your significant other over the next six months, which would you choose?

Cuba is the game we rate highest collectively.

2) Do you prefer playing new-to-you games or old favorites?

A little of both. I love learning new games and finding out whether or not I like them. Obviously old favorites are easier to get back into though.

3) Name a game that you originally liked and now dislike. Please explain why.

I didn't mind Killer Bunnies at first. I guess the end game mechanic just wore out it's welcome with me.

4) Name a game that you originally disliked and now like. Please explain why.

Not sure there is one that fits this criteria.

5) What is the strangest place you've ever played a game? Which game did you play?

Nowhere really strange.

6) What was the most interesting or exciting thing you saw or did at GenCON this past week? If you didn't attend GenCON tell us something about your weekend.

I went to WBC this past week. Averaged 4 hours of sleep for the week. Had an awesome time. Will do a geeklist write up.

7) As a BGG user, do you find promotions from BGG's sister sites intrusive or annoying?

Not really.

8) What do you think about the recent kickstarter trend where unknown designers and/or publishers solicit funds from the masses?

Everyone needs help sometimes. It can't hurt to ask.

9) What is the strangest or most startling thing you've ever seen in person?

CPR being done.

10) Which fashion faux-pas are you guilty of proudly rockin' as a child or young adult?

Zubaz pants and a mullet. I'm awesome like that.
