Hi there

Recently, I had a special celebration on BGG. My 1000th logged game. Hooray

I accomplished this in a mere (?) 7 years period. That makes roughly 0.4 games per day since I started logging them in Dec 2005.

Following is a list of all the games I played at least 10 times in that 7 years, with some remarks on them. You are welcome to comment.

(By the way: I do solo games a lot, but don't log them on BGG. Even if they have a real solo variant, like Mage Knight. The only exception to this is Freitag, since this is a solo game only.)

This was my 1000th game.
I still like it for the fast paced, tonguetwister fun, though it is not for all. Thoughtfull, slower people seem not to enjoy the sillyness.

I'm a teacher. I play this with my students (aged 10-20) a lot, usually in the last lessons before holidays. Most of them enjoy it, and many nowadays ask for it.
I have actually never ever played the game as a character, but always as the moderator. I have fun as this, and even did some insider jokes (like not handing out any werewolf cards and killing off players as to may liking ninja )

Great game for larger crowds, and superior to Miller's Hollow for handling more people and the voting system.

Don't get the meaning of some of the characters, and hence don't use them.
Recently bought the artifacts expansion and used it once. Needs more playing, but don't know if I take it with me every time.

My 2nd favorite game - right after advanced civi.
I'm not such a fan of cooperative games, but this is an exception. With limited time, there is nobody who tells the others what to do - but there should be one, the captain
Tense moments while the time runs out, great laughter if something didn't work out as intended - as it does most of the time.
Though I played this a lot, I didn't have many real missions. Most of them were training missions training new crews.
I own the expansion and itch to play it, but have not. Don't know of the double feature cards are worth it, but I'm sure the experience system is.

fun dexterity game. Everybody gets the rules in a minute. They all play, and want to play again. I have seen absurd constructions, starting with a little "bottle" as the bottom piece, and then going up and becoming broader like a tree.
In my school, we have sailing trips to the Ijsselmeer with 11th grade. When I am with them, I take the game along. Playing on a boat just adds to the experience. And students play it over and over again, no matter how "cool" they are at the age of 16-17 touching building bricks for kids.

the first deckbuilder
Enough has been said here about this one, I think.
I still like this game over any other "pure" deckbuilders.
It's one of the games that definitely does not need any expansions, though there are many, and I have resisted to this day buying one. I think it's the only game that I like where I didn't buy expansions - but I like the black market that came with my copy of Spielbox magazine

I like this game a lot. It is quick, has lots of interaction, and appeals to gamers and non-gamers alike. (Not that I despise longer games - much to the contrary. My most favoured game is Advanced Civi, after all, as mentioned above.)
Still wondering why this got the Kennerspiel des Jahres award. After all, it is not what I'd call a gamer's game. And the price tag still is hefty.
Not impressed with the leaders expansion, but I enjoy the Cities expansion a lot, since players can do lots of unexpected things.

and a lot of times before logging games in.
My favourite horror game, and the twist with the traitor is what it takes to make the game from good to great.
I still have not played all of the haunts, but some of them several times - when I have forgotten most of them, they get replayable.
I play 1st edition with revised books from BGG - not having cared for 2nd edition.
I like the creepy and strange happenings before the haunt starts, and the race to the win after that. It is true that many haunts are unbalanced, judging from how much of the house is discovered when it starts, but I guess we have to cope with that.
Since some of my players are not that fluent in English, sometimes I have to be the traitor, and we change characters then. I also enjoy that.

another great design by Vlaada Chvatil, that instantly gets all players to like it - having your spaceships destroyed and laughing about it.
I'm something of a master at building the ship (having not won teh game only once), and most of the other players hate me (in a freindly way) for turning the timer. I don't care. I even offered to take a handicap, but they don't want it. So be it.
I like both expansions and the chaos they bring, but have not played them too often. What I don't like from the expanions are the alternate space ships, and the 5th player, who just seems tacked on and doesn't blend too good with the mechanics.

Me and my girl friend had a short time after buying this playing it over and over again. Since then, it sits on the shelf.
It is a fun dexterrity game, but lacks replayability after a while, at least for me. Maybe I should suggest it again.

OK, not a real game.
I discovered the rules of this here on BGG, and use it with students soemtimes when there is time to kill. Older students like the idea very much, and we had hilarious times. Some students aged 13-15 used it to insult each other. That really pisses me off, though it's not the game's fault, of course. Idiots.

I was lucky to find a game in the local Games' workshop. I usually don't go there, but was looking for this game quite a long time, and heared that there was another edition on sale. After my vacation, I went to my local store. They had 2 copies left.
What a fun game for 2 players. I think it heavily favours the Genestealers, but so be it. For the emperor!

oh well. not a game, a funny toy. I know people who use it as a drinking game. I do not - though I am not opposed to a drink every now and then.
I use it sometimes to kill time until the rest of the players arrive.
(the number does not represent the actual number of games, which is of course much higher, but is the number of how often I assembled and played it.)

I only played the base game. Not very often. Then I bought all of the expansions, played it a lot as a computer game (you can find the link on BGG), and grew disenchanted. The last expansion is all about prestige. Nothing else matters. Not one of your nice old strategies. I don't like an expanion to alter the total flow of a game. I have not played it since then. and don't want to.

Same theme as Cold war, but boy is this heavy - and historic. That's what I like most about it. (Alternative) history. And fighting for my homecountry, (western) Germany, embedded in Europe. Even my girlfriend likes this.
I bought the luxury map, as I don't like the paperlike original map. Should have been included in the original, considering the price.
The only thing that I don't like is the cover. The line of the frontier is just plainly wrong.

an ideal and funny opener. Used it only as this, and never with the advanced rules. Point toy guns on your fellow players. How much better can this get?

When I bought this, we liked the sillyness of the theme and the pseudo-dexterrity. You really have no control. I sometimes use it as an opener or closer, but we don't play this so much anymore.

This is more of an RPG (my other great hobby) than a real boardgame. A RPG where you have no control at all. We laugh about the silly and strange stpries that evolve. It's not a strategy game. It's not a RPG. It's not a real game. It's stories. If you play it as such. it is great fun. I play it with my family, i.e. my parents, my brother ans guests, at festivities like Xmas and New years eve. Can't go wrong.

The best Lord of the Rings game there is. Draws heavily from the book, not only the movies. Military and individual characters fullfilling (or not) their quest. Like an (alternate) Lord of the Rings history game. Love it.
It's really a 2 players game, the 3-4 playres variant seem tacked on. I've never tried them.

This is one of my last discoveries. The Iello version is beatifull. The gameplay picks up speed the longer the game lasts. Though it really is quite abstract, I like what the cards are doing to you or your fellow players. I often play this with 2 players only.
Of course, as a card game, luck plays an important part, but It's OK for me.
I fear that expansions will break the balance or focus on other things entirely, as they did with Race for the Galaxy, that would maybe spoil teh fun for me.

I love this game, though It's really multiplayer-solitaire.
Going from a weakling to a mighty heroe with the addition of only a few cards. What an experience. Too bad that it takes so long.
I play the solo-variant quite often, but do not log it in. Even if I don't have many players to play this with, I can still have lots of fun.
Can't wait for the expansion, but fear the colour aberrations of the card backs that have been reported.

A party game that is only fun when you know the other people you are playing with. But then, it is real fun.
Played this with varying expansions more than 10 times, and now the card got all mixed up, but I don't care.

The first game I logged.
Still one of my favorite games. Alternate history, as I mentioned earlier. A good catch up-mechanism. Different mighty and weak civilizations, some of which I had not heard before.
I own and play the Avaalon Hill edition (with counters). Don't know much about the other editions, but will readily defend this one as the best, and be it for tradition only.
