This is the sequel to my geeklist for last year -- Games you STOPPED playing in 2011

This is a list of good games I used to play (semi-)regularly that got no play time in the last year, and why. As always, the "Why" is most interesting.

Note good games -- Games that I played 1-3 times and then discarded aren't here. These are games that I used to play often. No game is listed unless it got at least ten plays in the past.

I played this 5 times in '11, and nearly 75 times overall. But this hasn't seen the table in a while.

Partially it's because I've played it so much, and my kids no longer request it. Also because I've got so many short games, even short dice games. Roll Through the Ages has supplanted this, a bit.

Would I play this again -- Yes, but I'm in no hurry.

Puerto Rico has been fading slowly. I played twice in '11 (but no times in '10). It never got to my table last year. I've played roughly 60 times...

Would I play it again? -- Yes, particularly with the expansion, but I'm not in much of a hurry to introduce this game.

Another game that's slowly been tapering off, due to the cult of the new. I have north of 40 plays, but nothing since 2011.

Would I play again -- Sure. It's not like it's a commitment.

This had a decent burst of plays when it came out, and I got a few packs (and CC:Med), but haven't gotten a game of this up in over a year. That's not too surprising, since there are fewer wargamers than Eurogamers locally, and it's a much bigger investment in time/effort. Also, most of my CC:E opponents have been busy with non-gaming activities as of late...

Would I play this again -- Yes.

Was at one time my number one rated game. Just hard to find 4 other players to get this to the table - but I would in a moment if offered.

Some local players started devising secret communication conventions that soured me on the game.

I used to play this fairly regularly, but two things happened:
1. I don't like coop games as much as I used to;
2. When I do feel like a coop game, I tend to turn to Flash Point nowadays, which I think offers a much better experience (with a similar rules overhead).
