Who's the Ass? with too many players ended chaotically, as they will. Since then, I've just tracked the winners.
I never thought I would end up with over 800 games and expansions and a couple of hundred that I traded away or sold. I thought I would get to 50, or so, at the most!
When I play a game now, I record the information on three different sheets in the workbook. First I enter the game played, where it was played, who played, and who won. This is done in chronological order on a sheet dedicated to the games played in a particular year. Then I jump to the games owned or unowned sheets and add the play to the total and change the last-played date. Finally, I enter the game played on a table I use to see which games were played which month of the year, and how many times they were played.
I've worked on creating an Access database for this information over the years, but never have followed through and completed the task. If I ever found an easy way to create reports that looked like I wanted them to, I suspect I would get motivated to complete the task.
Here is some useless trivia on my gaming:
Number of games played since 6/1/03: 6901
Number of people I have played at least one game with: 643
Games I've played over 100 times:
101x 10 Days in Europe
260x Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm
396x Race for the Galaxy
**Not counting all the games played since I was a kid until 2003.
Yes, these are all face-to-face playings.
Yes, I have never been married.
No, I don't have kids. (And civilization breathes a sigh of relief!)
