I started tracking my plays seriously early in 2012. At some point shortly thereafter I challenged myself to average one play a day over the span of the next year. Over the past month, I was watching my total plays over the past year and I finally reached the 365 play mark over the past 365 days. I have compiled a list of the games played along with my thoughts of the plays (as I recall them now) and of the merits of the games themselves.

A friend of mine and primary gaming buddy (and BGG.CON roommate) loves this game. We used to play his print and play version before the FFG reprint. Since the re-print we play his new copy. It is hard to believe that I have only played this with him once in the last 365 days. It seems like maybe I have missed logging at least a few plays of this. Considering I am not a huge fan, maybe I am not logging these plays as diligently as I should.

To be fair, Wiz-War has its moments, like the time I was standing on my home space, dissolved two walls and used a stretchy arm to grab my final treasure for the win.

Future outlook: more plays highly likely.

I grabbed this in a live auction at my local FLGS for a few bucks. I played it once with my daughter and liked it. She was so so about it. I didn't see it hitting the table with my adult game buddies, so I sold it for a 500% profit in an online auction.

Future outlook: traded, but would play again.

Played at 2012 BGG.CON in the hot games room. It was ok, but I have played a lot of Dominion and am pretty done with that whole mechanic. Trains is too similar to Dominion to keep me interested.

Future Outlook: more plays unlikely.

My only play of any TTR game. Was a 4 player at the tale end of a long evening of gaming. I thought it was interesting, but pretty much what I expected; a lot of card drafting and down time.

It seems like a great gateway game, but I am in a stage where I want a little more meat on my games.

Future outlook: meh.

Another 2012 BGG.CON hot games room play. I have hemmed and hawed over whether to buy this. I think my wife might enjoy it. I don't remember enough about the game to comment on the gameplay. In the end, I am afraid the replay value simply isn't there in this one.

Future Outlook: Would play again. Might purchase.

I was aware of this game since shortly before its release. As a fan of the show, I was excited for Spartacus. I read the rules online and eagerly awaited its release. Tom Vasel auctioned his copy in the BGG Virtual auction and I won it. I met Tom the first day of the Con and found him to be very approachable and down to Earth. We talked games and other various topics for ten or fifteen minutes and he promised to get the game to me the next morning, which he did.

After making the exchange with Tom, I headed to the main gaming room and picked up three fellow gamers (one friend and two pickup players) and we sat down to play. Having read the rules twice, I had a solid grasp of the game and took 10 or 15 minutes to explain it thoroughly and we got down to business. After about an hour we found ourselves a third of the way into the game and we all felt the game was repetitive and wasn't offering enough interesting decisions, so we packed it in.

Still, Spartacus gets a lot of praise, so I have promised myself one more play before I toss this on the trade pile.

Future Outlook: Must try again before final verdict.

Another BGG.CON 2012 hot games room game. I did not enjoy the play. The little mini games did not grab my attention. I like games with decisions and strategy and for the most part, this game lacks both for most of the roles. Still, I like the idea and appreciate what this game is trying to do. I would be willing to try this again.

Future Outlook: must try again.

I am a child of 80's style cardboard counter games. As such, I was surprised to run across this game a few years ago here on the geek. Source of the Nile had completely escaped my attention. Then, I befriended a local gamer who had a copy and he agreed to teach me. Wow, what a mess this game is. Total randomness with a bunch of die rolls for various affects and results as you wander aimlessly about the game board. No thanks.

Still, I think this game is ripe for a 21st century re-imagining a la fantasy flight.

Future Outlook: Not without a major face lift/re-design.

This was a 3 player learning game with my son and my wife over Christmas break. They both enjoyed it and I hated it. Could not wait for it to end. This whole game felt like a painful exercise in senseless mechanics with no elegance whatsoever. It felt like an uninspired port form a computer game...and what is with the completely wonky combat system?

Future Outlook: not likely to play again. Game rests on the trade pile.

Learning game for Railways of the World. My copy of the Mexico variant does not include cards and considering I also have Europe, England and Eastern US (all with cards) I am unlikely to play the Mexico map again, which seems like a decent 2 player map.

Future Outlook: Like Railways of the World, but lack of Mexico cards will make this a non starter for future plays on this map.

I bought in to Race for the Galaxy when it first came out, and added several expansions. It got a lot of play a few years ago and then I grew tired of it and traded it away. This one play was with a gaming buddy who traded for a copy and I agreed to play it with him.

Future Outlook: Play time is short enough that I will usually agree to play it if someone else wants to. I no longer own a copy.

A BGG.CON 2012 play. This was suggested to me by a con buddy and I was blown away. I loved this game so much I wanted to go out and get my own copy. I love auctions as well as brutal games with tough decisions. Peloponnes is an almost pure auction game with constant brutal decisions. Unfortunately, it is not a cheap game. I haven't purchased a lot of games since November and so this remains on my wishlist.

Future Outlook: Must acquire and then play some more.

I am not a big fan of co-ops. I owned Pandemic and On the Brick and played them both quite bit before tiring of the whole co-op genre. This was my final play before trading my copy away. It was a tight little 2 player and we won 2 rounds before the deck expired. It was pretty tense and almost made me regret trading it away.

Future Outlook: would play it if someone else had a copy and wanted to play.

My first play of this game was at BGG.CON 2011 and I hated it. It took almost a year for a buddy of mine to get me to try it again. In my second play (this one recorded here) it wasn't horrible and I even caught myself having fun. In the end, I think I am just not that big a fan if tile laying games.

Future Outlook: Not going to buy it, but I will play it.

I acquired this recently in an auction and got it played once. I like this a lot as a shorter version of El Grande. Have been wanting to get this played again. One gripe I have is the print on the cards is very small, making it hard for my old man eyes to read. I need bi-focals and this game reminds me of that.

Future Outlook: more games highly likely.

I picked up Mansions when it first released and played through all of the scenarios as the keeper. I found the game to be very uneven and disliked most of the scenarios. As a competitive game, I only found 2 of the scenarios to be balanced at all. For the others, if the keeper plays to win, the players have little to no hope at all. As such, this is not so much a board game as it is a very limited replay RPG. As a board game, I really like Mansions, but found the replay value to be poor and was unwilling to pay more for the expansions which were getting mixed (or worse) reviews. As an RPG, I have many better options.

My one play form the last year was with the friend who ended up purchasing my copy of the game from me. That game ended up being a tight play of the first scenario in which I won as the keeper in the final round.

Future Outlook: I would be willing to play this again as a player using an expansion scenario I am unfamiliar with.

I played Lords of Vegas at a friends house during a week night gaming session. I really enjoyed it and would play it again. I liked the similarity to Acquire and the use of the dice I found interesting.

I have considered picking up my own copy and probably will if I can get it for a good price in an auction, but will be unlikely to buy it new.

Future outlook: Would play again and may end up buying my own copy some day.

I purchased this game when it was new (2002ish) before I my current board game craze. At the time, I owned Catan and a handful of older 80's Avalon hill games. I played it a lot with my then teenage son. When he moved out of the house a few years ago he took my original copy with him. I missed having it in my collection and grabbed a second copy in an auction. The new copy sat on my shelf for most of a year until my son came to visit. We played a game for old time's sake and enjoyed it.

Future Outlook: Need to get this one to the table more often. Great little 2 player game with a short playtime and some interesting decisions.

A friend of mine has been trying to get me to play this for over a year. Recently, at an open game day at my FLGS, I had a chance to play a pickup game (not with my friend who is a fan). I found the game to be almost completely devoid of interesting decisions, was packed with 90% downtime, and didn't really appreciate the supposed humor.

Since then, I played Chicken Caesar, which I find to be similar, shorter and actually funny.

Future Outlook: Will play Chicken Caesar instead.

1 play? In a year's time? For shame. Love this game. Must play this more!

The grand daddy area influence game. Love the card play, the turn order mechanic and the need to balance turn order and available playing pieces. Every game I see that has two piles of playing pieces (one available for play and another you need to acquire) I refer to them as Court and Provinces.

Future Outlook: Setting this up at my table as I type this. Ok, not really, I need to get 4 others to the table with me first, damn it!

This is another previously owned game. I found myself with another gaming buddy at our FLGS during open game day waiting for more players. We grabbed the store's demo copy and I taught him Galaxy Trucker while we waited.

In the end, this is another tile layer and as previously mentioned that is not my favorite mechanic. Also, most of the game is just spent flipping cards and watching what happens to your ship which I find pretty boring.

Future Outlook: I will play it if someone else has a copy they want to play.

I prefer this to Pandemic as I find it scratches the same itch with a better them and shorter playing time. I also like the mechanic of the sinking island tiles and find it a tenser experience. I mainly play this one 2 player with my daughter and she hasn't been into board games much lately, so this one sits on the game shelf.

Future outlook: Hopefully my daughter will come around and I will get to play this more with her soon.

This was the first game I played with a gaming friend I made this year. Since then, John and I have gone on to play quite a few games together and I find our tastes in games to be very comparable. This game was his and I can take it or leave it. It was light enough and short enough that I would play it again but wouldn't ask for it.

I don't remember enough about it to comment on the game play.

Future Outlook: Future plays seem unlikely.
