I enjoyed reading Cornjob's Five & Dime Geeklist (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/151855). I thought I would do one of my own. It's forever difficult for me to come up with a Geeklist to actually do, but this one, at least, is of interest to me. Maybe someone else will enjoy it too.

50 plays? That's just crazy. This has to be one of the silliest games ever made, but people in my group get such a kick out of playing. This would never be suggested by me, but I love my group and this only takes a minute to actually play a game. So, here it is, trumping every other game I played this year by a landslide.

Now this one is a GREAT game. Too bad it is so hard to come by, because this trumps any trick taking game out there. Every game we play seems to reveal an additional nuance to the decisions we make. The number of repurcussions that each card you play has is impressive. It's going to be a long time before I tire of this one.

This is another fine game. Its a rummy variant with great art. I am almost always willing to play, but it's not one I am going to push over other similarly quick games I want to get to the table. Most of these plays were demo games at cons.

These were mostly online plays with friends. Ah Thunderstone, my kryptonite. It is my favorite game that nobody in my group wants to play. I used to think this game was too clunky to be great, but the theme was enough to carry it along. Then they offered online versions on Yucata and Facebook. Suddenly, I found layers of strategy I never would have seen in my 15 or so face to face games I had played prior.

At this point, I have two things about playing this game that keep me from bringing it to the table:
1. Setup time. This is a monster to setup, and I have not managed to find a good way around that.
2. Some of the attack cards can absolutely cripple an opponent if they haven't played enough to see it coming. That detracts from the fun if only one of us playing is able to do anything interesting on a given turn.
3. OK... three things. I appreciate the Advanced version of the game where they tweaked the rules to make it more friendly to new and old players. However, there is just such a charm to the clunky nature of the original. Learning to work around seemingly impossible situations that the original game could often provide makes me prefer it to the new version. That said, the Advanced version is an improvement on accessibilty, thematic relevance, and available choices to the point where I don't know if the original game will make it to the table easily. That makes me sad.

I tend to log plays according to the expansion if that is the majority of items used. I have seen that logs are intended to include the game and the expansion together. I don't like how that screws with the overall counts of the logs. I don't know. At any rate, this bad boy got to the table 9 times with none of the cards from the base game. I LOVE this expansion. It is deep, crazy, and it really gives the game a freshness reboot. Plus it is nearly impossible to keep a straight face at the insanity of the "Rats" card. The one caveat is that it's just a little too complicated for anyone new to the game.

This one would not be on this list were it not for playing demos of this at cons. It is a great game for what it is - a light romp through a dungeon. The boasts are tricky for a new player to understand the value, however. Without everyone on board for boasting, the game can fall flat. It is group dependant more than I like for its niche.

Mmm. This game is so much fun! It's great because it plays well with gamers and non-gamers alike. The theme is not common and the tension that builds while a story is naturally unfolding is superb.

Dice Town came to my attention by my friend, Captain Bane. It's a slight bit tricky to explain how the game functions, but once everyone gets it, it can be a lot of fun. It's one of those games that doesn't know exactly what it is. It is light enough to be a filler, but long enough to occupy the spot of the central game of the night. With the right crowd, it is a game of groaning, laughter, and dickery.

I have owned the expansion for about a year now, and still have not got it to the table. Why? Well I was afraid it would go out of print. At the same time, we are having more than enough fun with just the base game.

Dear Dungeon Run:

I tried to love you. I really did. When I first saw you, I was besotten. You look so sexy, and you aren't afraid to wear that really short skirt. I was introduced to you at a con and it was a fabulous first date.

Then I brought you home to meet the gang. Things didn't feel quite right immediately. I played with you by myself, but you finished before I was really getting started. I did the whole group thing, and there were some great moments, but you just got akward. Especially during your final moments of the evening. You just hung around a bit too long, and then you got all weird when someone grabbed your stone.

You're pretty, you really are, but you're just not what I was looking for under the hood. I don't want to force it. I'm seeing other games. I'm sorry. That's just the way it has to be.

Another game introduced to me by the great Captain Bane. This one I learned on Yucata then got the real thing in a trade. This is truly a great game. The push your luck aspect of the ships on the river is fabulous. I have introduced this one to a few of my friends, some aren't even europhiles, and it has gone over well every time. A worthy addition to my collection I hope it sees more plays this year.

Oh this game is so delicious even though I doubt I have played it 100% correctly yet. It works so hard to capture the D&D feel translated through board game mechanics. I think it succeeds at so many levels. It can get a bit mathy, and, certainly, the decisions are very much in the moment tactical decisions much more than a long term strategy. Every game of this has been thoroughly enjoyable.

My wife is a huge horse racing fan. I became obsessed about this one for the love it gets on this site as well as for the short playing time. I ended up getting it in my first math trade. It turned out to be my absolute favorite racing game. It's fast with constant difficult choices. The tension ramps up very effectively and realistically as the horses make their way around the track. I am always excited to see this one get to the table.

This game was completely off my radar until I happened to walk by a game being demoed at Origins and they wanted a fourth player. It turned out that the teacher was none other than Richard Borg himself. This is a tactical minis game I can pull out and teach in five minutes. It is accessible in a way that almost all mini games are not. I doubt I will ever get rid of this one. Someday I need to submit a few pics of the minis I painted.

Now this is a filler. It's a board game without a board. I have played it on lunch tables, on dry erase boards, at diners, and just the plain old floor. I am terrible at flicking games. This one is so portable and teachable though. A superb game for the niche that it fills.

I went in with a friend to kickstart this one. My reasoning was to get my hands on a copy of Roma (which was only 1 game shy of being on this list). My friend wanted this one, and it gets to the table frequently. I enjoy it for what it is, but I doubt I would seek it out. It is much more fun than I would have ever expected it to be, however.

Yum. This is one of my all time favorite games to date. It is exactly what I want it to be. It is layered with rules upon rules, but it incorporates so much about what I remember Star Trek to be like. This is an experience more than a game. If you aren't interested in the developing story that evolves as you play, than this is not the game for you. It is a great story generator, my favorite of its kind.

I cannot believe I got this to the table that many times. This was a game I received in a math trade at GenCon. I put it on the list as a whim. It's one I never planned to buy on its own because I knew how much work it would be to paint it. and it was. 70 hours to paint the base game, 20 hours to paint the expansion. But it is done, and it is so much better for the effort. I cannot see myself playing it enough to justify that time, but I just don't care. I am likely going to make my own 3 dimensional boards for this one, even.

Wow. What a surprise this one was. The concept of a game centered around the seasons of the year sounded terrible to me. Then I played it. There are so many interesting and delicious combos hiding in these decks. This is high on my want to play list. I need to get this to the table far more than it has been.

This was a math trade. I got it with the intention of having a light filler to play with friends and, potentially, my son. He is almost old enough to play. It's a light game. The value for the money is pretty solid.

I am not a huge fan of social deduction games, but when there is a large group of werewolf players and we are playing the right roles, it is a huge amount of fun, far more than I would have thought possible. I really enjoy this game when it's done right. It's far too easy to do it wrong, however.

I logged 115 unique games last year.

57 ( basically half) I only played once.
16 I played twice
12 I played 3 times
6 I played 4 times (Dominion: Hinterlands,FlowerFall, Montana, The Resistance Roma,Smash Up

I perceive myself as someone who likes to try new things more than I like to play the same game and I think this very much backs that up.
