A starter that Richard brings, which we can play while waiting for our food and then eating our food. People can drop in and out without too much fuss, so always good to play.

Lexi likes this game despite thinking she is not even very good at it! One thing she loves is a challenge and this game is a challenge on the brain because you can ALWAYS be faster. Great game and one I am glad she has on her list

We started with a brand new game called Rebounding Automatons, which is completely unlike any game that has ever been played by anyone ever. Except Ricochet Robots. It's exactly like that.




Ian, Andy, Tim*, Tycho**, Eric5, Kory, Counterclockwise Scott, Nyck, Jerry*, and Roza all earned a chip, by correctly moving a robot automaton to its target position in the fewest number of moves.

Recently relocated to Denver from Las Vegas, and, you guys...my game budget has been curtailed!

I did manage to find an excellent copy of the 1999 English original of Ricochet Robots for $1.99 at Goodwill. When I got to the register, I learned that today is 25% off games day.

Great game for less than a buck and a half...

We are shocked, shocked to report that the first game of 2016 was, in fact, Ricochet Robots. Imagine that! Well, you don't have to imagine it, because it actually happened, just like it did last year and the year before. (I'm too bored with this joke to look further back than that.)

Also, everybody was late, causing us to start seven full minutes after the appointed time. You may now all feel bad about yourselves.



Tim, Ian, Jerry, New Eric, Andy, Jeff, Roza, Kyle, Natalie, and Tycho all scored at least one chip, because they were paying attention and not off fiddle-faddling away valuable Game Night time with petty socializing and friend-making. Happy New Year!

To celebrate the last five-and-a-half hours of 2015, we played Ricochet Robots. Because New Year's Eve is not a time to abandon tradition.



With an unruly, undisciplined crowd gathering about and amongst them, somehow Elden*, Jerry*, Alan, Tim!!, Andy*, New Eric*, Kelli, Nyck*, Jeff, Eric Classic**, and Ian all "earned" at least one chip. Próspero año y felicidad!

I'm not going to count the two games of Lords of Waterdeep on the ipad that I checked New Years day. So really, the first game was Ricochet Robots as we were waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive for our New Year Gaming Day.

In order to save Christmas, we played Ricochet Robots, because that's how it works.




Tim, Jerry, Tycho, Alan, Eric 5, Ian, and Leif AND ELDEN all scored a chip and possibly more chips. Everybody else ruined Christmas.

The week opened up with a game of Patchwork where my opponent did something that we both thought was going to lead to a devastating loss. They focused more on using up less time than on getting buttons. The end result was they got the 7x7 and went on to win the game. Note, by the end of the game, their button production was only slightly lower than mine.

Tuesday, a two player game of Ricochet Robots. Notable because the first round involved a 42 mover, and the final round a 3. But, I felt winning on a 3 was bogus, so we played another round so that I could win on a legitimate puzzle.

That night and the next morning I tried NOIR: Deductive Mystery Game online. I don't get it. I mean, I get it, it just seems rather dull. One game ended on an overly aggressive detective getting killed, another on a actual figuring out of where the killer was, and the third a killer who didn't teleport often enough. In all three cases the ending felt extremely anti-climactic.

Friday with the family was a couple of games of High Society which remains brilliant, but I walked away thinking I'd rather just play Ra. So that's another game ready to go.

After, an incomplete game of Bohnanza. We ran out of time because we were all too picky when it comes to trades. Also, we keep pushing for trades that weren't coming.

Sunday was a game of Kingdom Builder where I finally realized that I over evaluate Citizens. It's worth a max of 20 points, but because it is so easy to accomplish, I push for it, looking for my 20. I lost to my opponent outscoring me on Fishermen and Farming. Since they weren't focused on Citizens, they were able to get way more special powers which allowed them to rid themselves of pieces much faster than me AND arrange their pieces better.

Preferred edition: 1999 Rio Grande

Another case where it's not a big difference. But I really do prefer the original singular edition - likely because it's the one I grew to love.

In addition to not correctly RSVP-ing, most gamers decided to show up late, and thus prevented the formation of the quorum required for Ricochet Robots until the unconscionable hour of 6:37 PM. I am ever-increasingly vexed at the new ways the CBBS has for showing its contempt for Game Night.



Elden, Tim, Jerry, Counterclockwise Scott, Eric 5, Andy, Tycho, Ian, and Nyck scored a chip. Or two. Or three. I don't think anybody had more than three. And even if they did, so what?

A game off my wish list that I've been wanting for a while and the version I've been looking for. I've heard that the Rio Grande Games version is nicer than the newer versions. My husband and I love puzzles and solving problems, so we're really looking forward to playing this. Thank you!
