Yikes, no posts since my last quarterly review! Must do better... but it was a fun summer

Total plays: 118

Distinct games: 56

New-to-me games: 14

Dimes: 1 - Heul doch! Mau Mau

Nickels: 4 - L.L.A.M.A. (9), Q.E. (5), Hats (5), Dragon's Breath (5)

A pretty standard quarter, plays-wise. No major events, but a steady stream of games night tapas!

And now a look at the collection.

Acquired: 5 - Ticket to Ride: London, Q.E., Heul doch! Mau Mau, Hats, Dragon's Breath

Removed: 1 - Brass

Owned: 211 (excluding expansions - up from 203 at end Q1)

Unplayed: 2 - Euphrates & Tigris: Contest of Kings, Res Publica

Pleased with all of these. A couple of fun card games, a fascinating economic filler, another quick TTR that I like a bit better than New York and the result of my first games-shopping trip with my 3-year-old daughter! Brass is still a great game but I'd *never* played my copy and can't see me doing any time soon.

Best new-to-me: have really enjoyed the aforementioned QE and Hats but I'll give it to Pax Pamir: Second Edition which seems to have kept all the best bits of the original while making it far more accessible. Four face-to-face plays and a couple on Vassal and I'm hungry for more.
