This past month I participated in the An Advent of Christmas Gaming Challenge. It was a lot of fun to see the games people have been playing in nearly real-time. My idea for this geeklist is to have people add games they've played in January. If the game you just played is already on the list, comment under the game to let us know.

I found it very entertaining to keep track of what users were playing as they played them, and to comment when someone played a game I had played, or had questions about. It's much easier to get a quick review of a game from someone who just got it to the table, than to post a recommendations forum.

Happy gaming! Can't wait to see what you all play!

P.s. I know it's not quite January yet, but I'm a teacher and it's winter break...gotta find something to do.

EDIT:

Happy Groundhog Day! Here's the February list for everyone who wants to keep at it!

Got this little gem after the guys at Shut Up & Sit Down (http://www.shutupshow.com/) reviewed it on one of their podcasts. Played five rounds last night with my brother and cousin who are in town for Christmas. Good balance of good and evil wins.

Also played Kingdom Builder last night. Twice by request from my brother and cousin who aren't big board gamers. As we set up, my brother asked if he was going to feel like an idiot playing it, and I assured him that we're trying to get people to enjoy playing games with us, not drive them off.

Got a chance to play one of Justin's Christmas presents: Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game! We tried to play the other day, but Justin fell asleep while I was reading the rules.

I love this game! I picked it out because it was something I knew he hadn't heard of before, but that I thought he would enjoy because of the awesome theme and the fact that he loves Dominion,but I find it pretty boring. Turns out I did good because it's awesome! The only thing I didn't like about it was that the card dividers don't come labeled, and that's terribly annoying to me.

The first game we played the easy first play set up and I won 27-15. Then, the next game we used a harder setup and something horrible happened that made me unable to do anything the whole game and I ended up forfeiting halfway through with the score something like 35-6. :/ I don't know what happened. So, Justin absolutely destroyed me that game, leaving us tied. For now. He's is supposed to come over tonight to play the tie-breaker, so I will update soon with who took the win for this list and some pictures from last night.

12/27/2012

Well we played another game, but due to someone, I'm not saying who, having rocks in his head, we ended up doing a thing that destroyed the game so we will have to play again to break the tie. Not that I'm sad about that part, I can't wait to play again!

12/30/2012

Played again! Justin ended up KILLING me, I think the score was something like 40-21. I had a blast! I love this game, haha!

We both love Hive, but have an ongoing argument about White having a major advantage over Black. I always make Justin go first at games because I don't like being first. We used to play the crap out of Hive and Justin was always White for this reason and I never beat him a single time, even though I generally beat him at most abstracts most of the time () and then one day I played White and beat him. We played several more games this way and I kept beating him, switched, and I lost. So, I think that White definitely has a huge advantage and he claims that it doesn't.

So, we played 2 games with me as the White, both of which I won. Then we argued about it a little bit. And made a bet that whoever won the next game had to concede and admit they were wrong. We both agreed and played a 3rd game, and wouldn't you know it, the little shit beat me! So, there you go.

We played a game of this. I love adding these cards to chess, it makes it so unpredictable and every game is so different and so much fun.

Justin ended up getting a card that allowed him to end up having a million queens on the board. I was able to stay alive for a long time and by the time he made me quit (he wouldn't let me finish...I think he was scared) I still had two (yes, 2) Kings on the board along with several pawns, 2 rooks, bishop, and a queen. So, I think I did okay.

Our Christmas game box arrived! Along with some games for my brother, it held

Escape: The Curse of the Temple - played Dec 27
Clash of Cultures - played Dec 30
Mage Knight Board Game - played Dec 27
War of the Ring (Second Edition) - played Dec 31
Defenders of the Realm - played Dec 28

I'm not sure if we'll get all of them tried out before we head to Ottawa for 10 days (most of them are a bit lengthy whistle), but I'm sure we'll get at least one play of each before January is through.

First up: Escape!

This looks like something that will see a lot of plays.

We've now played Escape:

Dec 27 (x1)
Jan 4 (x4) - 2 tries with the curses, then 2 games with my boyfriend's mom
Jan 9 (x3) - taught the game to my brother
Jan 19 x2 - taught to 2 new players after playing CoC, played without curses, then with curses
Jan 20 x2 - taught to 2 new players after playing TI3, played without curses, then with curses
Jan 25 x2 - taught to 2 new players before playing BSG

This is the second game to be played from our Christmas lot. Of the 5, this was the only one we had played before purchasing.


We've played Mage Knight:

Dec 28 - 2 player, co-op
Dec 30 - 2 player, co-op
Dec 31 - 2 player, co-op
Jan 9 - taught to my brother
Jan 10 - 3 player, co-op
Jan 17 - 3 player, co-op
Jan 25 - 2 player, co-op, rampaging variant & increased city difficulty

Obviously we hate this game...

It's a great game for 2 poeople. Simple, quickly and pretty . I thought that it will be boring soon, but it has difficulty settings right and mini-expeditions, so after 20 games it's still exciting and fresh. I'm convinced that it would be a game of January.

Dec 28 - Game 3 of 5 new ones played.

We played 2 games of this last night. We randomly chose our characters, and in the first game lucked into a super powerful Wizard-Rogue combo. We won relatively easily. The second game, we played as the Sorceress and Ranger, and got our butts handed to us.

We enjoyed the game quite a bit though.

I got this game in a Maths Trade here on the Geek. Yesterday I got to play the two player version with my wife.

The first game was a bit slow due to us getting to know the game, but the second game went a lot better. We both see a lot of potential in this game and in due time it may even like it as much as Goa.

But we both agree that this game will probably be even better with 4 players. So I hope we get a chance to try this soon!

01/06

We played two two-player games of this yesterday. We're starting to get the hang of this game. The first game was a big victory for me. I won with 64 points to 38 points.

Don't know what I was doing the second game, but I lost that one with 35 points to 49 points.

Played our second game of this after getting it from my cousin for Christmas. I was the bad guys and totally kicked butt. It was pretty brutal actually. I rolled WAY more sixes than I should have been able to. And the dice hated Marshall today.

Got this for Christmas. Have played countless times on my phone. My first in-person play. Nice fairly quick game. A few truly tense dice rolls. Arkham filler?

Might be a little long for a filler. Am wondering if there is a way to speed things up a bit.. Maybe fill with half Doom tokens and half elder signs at the beginning of the the game...?

My very first pnp! Got some square cubes at Hobby Lobby and used nail polish to put the dice faces onto them. Played three times solo. The first two I made mistakes with the rules, but the third time I got 72 points (only 13 away from the solo average). I'm happy with how they turned out, and siked to keep putting together print and pay games!

This is the first game to knock Kingdom Builder off its pedestal since March 2012. Both my husband and son regularly request it. We thought we didn't like deck building (Dominion failure!) but apparently we do.

So this was our first play through. My final score was 85 and my husbands was 39. Are those numbers typical? I feel like my score was really pretty high but I built a card that massively populated my stockpile, then built up to 25 influence in buildings and then Merchanted(it's a word) until my Vault had 25 resources. With so many cards in play it was a little hard to keep track of all the modifiers but we mostly managed.

I think in the future I am going to come up with a way to track influence points and draw allowance.

We played four 4-player games yesterday. Mixed in the roles from Pandemic: On the Brink and picked our roles randomly.

We lost four times in a row on the 'normal-level'. The first two times were really close (3 medicines developed, about to develop the fourth), the thirth and fourth time we were devestated by the cubes filling the board.

Had a great game nevertheless.

Played two 2-player games of this yesterday. We had bought it after we played it with four players, so we were wondering how it was with only 2.

It was an enjoyable game. It's better with four players, but it's still nice. It won't be my favorite filler for two players though.

01/01
We played two games if this again. One was the last game of 2012 and the other was the first game of 2013.

01/06
Played it again twice. We both won one game. I'm starting to enjoy the two-player version more and more.

01/16 We played it again, this time we played it with 3 players. We had a lot of fun even though two of my roosters were countered with eggs.

I quite like this one. And I love the plastic pieces, from the little boats that need assembling to the cities that you literally build/expand throughout the game.

Dec 30 - 2 player game
Jan 19 - 4 player game
