Whoa, it's new year, and happy one for me and hopefully for most of you. I just finished playing the first game of this year and I won!

Add your first victory of 2006 here. Ties don't count.

I wanted to play something easy and suitable for two players so I choose this title. The opponent was my dear girl Katja. The score was something like 185 - 173.

First game I won in 2006 was Lost Cities. Nothing to be too proud of as it was the first time playing this game for my opponent. He did enjoy it though which was great. He ended up winning the two games of Blokus Duo we played and that was also a game he'd never played before.

Won my first game, we started just after midnight (after seeing this geeklist!).

I won 120 vs 80 something for my wife and my 8 YO son (both had about the same score). GREAT game, lots of fun... Now to bed!

We finished up a game of TransEuropa in time to go into the other room to watch the ball drop in Times Square (on TV, that is). When we were done toasting the new year, we went upstairs and played Zendo. The first rule was something of a bust because of a disagreement over whether clear pyramids were a color or were colorless (the distinction wasn't caught in time to fix it). I was master for the second rule. I correctly guessed the third rule. Then we moved on to another game.

The last game of 2005 was Hammer of the Scots. After killing William Wallace as the English, although losing the war....it was nice to acknowledge the new year by blowing up my opponent's carrier, not before eliminating all of his fighters and destroyer fleet first. In truth, I enjoyed the lighter, simple Mission Command more. I think my head was just too tired for a serious game tonight. At any rate, 2005 was a good year for me for gaming. If I can make it to a convention next year, that is probably the only way to eclipse it.

First game we played was Pickomino; I got thrashed. I asked my wife if she liked it better than Yahtzee; she said "oh I love Yahtzee!" Well, you learn something new every year. I won the Yahtzee. I hope to go the entire year undefeated at Yahtzee.

This is the game mentioned by Cornjob in his item above- I was his opponent. We played this game past midnight. I think that qualifies as a game played in 2006. Victory by majority of nobels- with Wallace dying on the last turn of the game.

Not only was it my 1st win of the new year, but it was the 1st time to play this great game with a full set of 5 players. I love this game with my normal game group of 4, but boy does it ever shine with a crowded board all bribing and conniving for precious water - cool, clean water.

I won RoboRally just after midnight last night, but since we started RoboRally late in 2005 my first game won played entirely in 2006 was Deflexion.

Five minutes later, Deflexion was also my first game lost played entirely in 2006.

Just finished winning as the Allies in a real nail-biter against my wife. Her Germans came within a single hit of taking Liege at a time when the 3 additional VP's would have been enough for a sudden death Victory for them, but my Allies counterattacked with the British Guards Armoured, securing Liege, while my US 3rd Army broke through and recaptured Bastogne through diligent Special Action usage and plentiful air-support missions luckilly drawn for that turn from the cup.

We had a blast, life is good

Came up with an idea for an archeological game during a visit to Oxford a few months ago--this weekend has been the first time I really got to work on it.

The game's fairly light, but has a hidden strategic side which my playtesters are only just starting to work out (mainly because they're noticing than I've been winning pretty consistently)
