1. Board Game: Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia [Average Rating:7.72 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.72 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.72 Unranked]

Numer of plays: 10

We have always sort of avoided playing Ticket to Ride, not understanding the hype around this game, and thinking it would be too simple. But we were wrong! We absolutely love it! It is a perfect filler and a good game to play with friends and family.
One month after getting the base game as a birthday present, we bought Volume 1 of the Map Collection. As big Asia lovers, we love the maps. Moreover we like the gameplay.

We foresee this game getting the same amount of plays in 2013, although it has to compete with the maps of Volumes 2 and 3, which we recently bought.

This is also a very good filler game. Very quick to play and easy to explain to other players.

Number of plays: 9

We always try to get our friends to play board games and get infected by the board gaming virus .Usually that turns out well (for us).

However, recently, some of our friends, who are relatively new to baord gaming, have discovered Catan, and they don't want to play anything else anymore. And, they do not want to try Cities and Knights (yet)... Aaaahhhhh! Well, ok, we all started with Catan, let's hope it's just a phase.

It is not that Catan is a bad game, but we just don't like the randomness and the gameplay. So whenever we are playing Catan, we are just enjoying the social aspect of playing with friends and do not take to actual gameplay too seriously.

We hope to see less plays of this game in 2013 or at least an equal number of plays with some different expansions.

This is a great game. We really love everything about it! This game is easy to get to the table after a long day at work. Not because it is simple, but because we love playing it so much.

We expect an equal amount of plays in 2013.

We play this with the same friends mentioned in the entry of the base game. This makes the game slightly more fun, but still we rather play something else.

If our Catan friends are willing to try other games or other expansions to Catan, this expansions will see fewer plays in 2013! Let's hope so!

Only 6 plays in 2012.... That's so sad. We like Dominion a lot. We think the low number of plays is due to all the new games that found their way into our collection recently.

One of our goals for 2013 is to play this games + expansions more often.

This game has become a great way to round up our board gaming evenings. It plays fast and is extremely fun to play.

We predict to see more plays of this fantastic game in 2013!

OK, we played all 6 games in one evening, but still we had a lot fun. It's hilarious!

We expect no more plays in 2013, but that is partly due to us not owning the game.

See comments on Volume 1 of the Map expansions. We love the game!

We expect TtR getting the same number of plays in 2013.

We love this game, but it is sometimes hard to get to the table, because not all of our friends like it. Especially the non-frequent gamers refuse to play, thinking the game is too difficult. However, most of them admit to like the game after having tried it.

We foresee more plays in 2013, as more friends are slowly beginning to like this game.

This is our number 1 game! What a shame that it only got 5 plays in 2012. This game suffers the most from us playing and purchasing new games. We should make up for this....

So, in 2013, the number of plays should at least double!

We took this game with us on our holiday in Australia. It is a nice filler, nothing more. We like to play it, but there are many games that we like to play more.

In 2013, we foresee fewer plays of this game.

Same as above. A good filler and holiday game. When we are at home, we prefer to play the original board game.

We have no idea how many plays this game will see in 2013.
