445 plays of 84 different games last year. That's less than 2018, but more than 2017.

Here's the list of everything I played five or more times.

Spirit Island x119 (252 all-time)
Still enjoying this as a laundry-day game. Looking forward to the expansion.

Sentinels of the Multiverse x48 (688 all-time)
It's fallen into being the second-string laundry-day game. Because of very late Kickstarter campaigns, I guess there's still more content for this on the way.

Unpublished Prototype x25 (304 all-time)
Various prototypes and experiments.

Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King x16 (54 all-time)
I still don't feel like I've played this out. Always a good time.

Tiny Towns x13 NEW!
Second Story x12 (50 all-time)
Decktet x9 (240 all-time)
There was a while when John, Chris, and I were getting together for weekly Decktet nights. Some of the games are ones that I haven't played in a while, and they've held up well.

Five Tribes x9 (31 all-time)
This is my favourite game that I don't own.

Perudo x9 (46 all-time)
Sluff Off! x9 (58 all-time)
Cardline: Globetrotter x8 (52 all-time)

Draftosaurus x8 NEW!
I added origami boxes (so you don't have to hold all the pieces in your hand) and invented a variant. Together, these small changes take it from good to great. Tied with Tonari for best new-to-me game of the year.

Kingdom Builder x8 (146 all-time)
The Mind x7 (23 all-time)
Sorcerous Futures x6 (14 all-time)
Chicane x5 (17 all-time)

Modern Art x5 (20 all-time)
Starting bringing this old classic along on friday nights. I've learned some new strategies, too.

No Thanks! x5 (51 all-time)

Tonari x5 NEW!
Less chaotic than I expect from a Bruno Faidutti game, but subtle and fun.
