It's New Year's Day here in Australia, and my head is sore. Post your tales of partying followed by woe here. May you all record more plays this year than last!

It was a BIG night at my house. My baby sister (27yo) got married in my backyard in a fancy dress fairy tale wedding. Yes, I dressed up as a fairy, but a very masculine fairy - Oberon, to be precise. As MC and owner of the premises, I was busy all night and my feet still hurt. Last guests (the bride and groom) left about 3:45am, and I had about 3.5 hours sleep before my hangover woke me up. We've cleaned up the back yard, including sorting out 300+ empty bottles and cans. Even the dog is dog tired. Now a lot of the guests have come back to help clean up and locate lost property, but I'm surfing the 'geek.

553 plays recorded last year, and waiting for the 06 supporter badges to become available.

A relatively quiet night for me. Had a another couple over for dinner and drinks. After all the kids were off to bed we played some games. We were in a middle of a game of Cloud 9 when midnight arrived. We only remembered because of all the fireworks being let off in the neighbourhood. Mate and myself ended up drinking a carton of Hoegaarden between us. Didn't pull up too bad the next morning and after an early swim, some more drinking and gaming. What a way to start 2006!

No excess of partying for me, but we had my girlfriend's nieces over for the afternoon and they wanted to play "interesting" games. I introduced them to the sheep game the other day; they're only 6 and 3 so we play with very simplified rules (no forests) and score the number of penned in sheep. Mind you, the game doesn't get completely finished as the 3 year old wanders off quite often.
I also introduced them to Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers but that was not completed by a long way as a video was put on... but in the evening we went to one of the big sushi restaurants.

To all my geekfriends, I know I haven't been around much lately, but BGG is still my homepage and everyone is still in my heart everyday. Just so damn busy!

Not much partying for me this year. We all gather at my mom's house and the kids usually end up playing video games and the adults watch movies. Even though I brought Ticket to Ride, no one was in the mood for a boardgame - to my huge disappointment. The last hour of '05 had me playing 2 rounds of Phoenix with my hubby, mostly for fun as we didn't keep track of points.

The first half hour of '06 had me getting my tush kicked in Dvonn by hubby, which is nothing new, so I think this year is off to a fairly predictable start!
