Yes, me again cool ! Despite 114 plays of 6 different games (no new games), less plays than I initially expected in February, but a schedule change for the last two weeks kind of forced a reduction (at least reduction for me, many would probably kill for 100+ plays).

WWE Raw Deal 46
Revolver 28
Resident Evil Deck Building Game 19
Battle Cry: 150th Civil War Anniversary Edition 10
Thunderstone 10
The Price of Freedom: The American Civil War 1861-1865 1

Same Top-2? Yes.

Legendary suffered a bump, but deck-building games did well regardless, RE should be getting 19 plays any month it sees action, given that I have 38 characters for it (well, technically 40 but two only work in Outbreak mode which I still don't like), so 2-player gets half the plays to see each character once.

On the back of watching a DVD series about the Civil War, finally decided to start off a second rotation of BC150, having already previously played each of the scenarios twice (once on each side), Battle Cry should be at 120 plays in a few months.

Daddy of DBGs (for me), Thunderstone returned, though ironically, the reason it came back (acquired the Werewolf Promo set), didn't see action once, randomizers just didn't want it getting into the game, but the previously rare Doppelganger monsters saw action three times I think. Will keep slugging away at TS, at least until I see the Werewolves in action .

Finally, another game that returned (like BC150) and was meant to get more plays, Price of Freedom. Like Battle Cry, directly as a result of the ACW DVD series, hoping to find the time to play it more than once in the coming months.

The CABS Dominion League restarted in January, and I played 13 league games in February. Far behind in second place was an Unpublished Prototype I can't talk about, with 3 plays.

Pandemic was noteworthy among the 2-play games; I played it with proxy versions of the new and revised roles for the new edition. They work out pretty nicely.

I only played Sentinels of the Multiverse once, but they merged the entries for the original and enhanced editions, so instead of having a dime and a nickel, I now have a quarter.

Three games hit the table after an absence of at least a year:
Zooloretto - last played October 2011 - The people I usually game with seem to prefer Coloretto. None of them were in this game.

Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas - last played October 2010 - I don't remember it being bad, but I won't mind waiting a long time to play it again.

Category 5 (6 nimmt!, whatever) - last played December 2007 - It had been so long, I didn't even remember logging it.

The full list:
Dominion 13
Unpublished Prototype 3
Pandemic 2
Pink Hijinks 2
Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar 2
Zendo 2
1000 Blank White Cards 1
Category 5 1

With 26 plays, I came up just short of averaging one per day in February. Even getting close to a game-per-day average has been a rarity lately, with most months barely getting halfway there.

All of the most-played games this time around were kids games played with my daughter. As I've been saying in this list the past few months, she's starting to become quite the gamer and is regularly requesting to play. Little by little I've been introducing her to new games, with Louie making a return to the table this time.

The only new game for me this month was Powerboats, which I really enjoyed. It's been on my wishlish for a couple years now, but I'd just never managed to get around to playing it. Now it's a "must have".

Also of note was the play of High Frontier, which was my first ever face-to-face-in-the-same-room play of the game. Previously I've done numerous solo plays, two PBF games, and even some face-to-face games via Skype, but never a "true" face-to-face play.

February has always been low on numbers for me. That's the reason I consider this past February good. Since starting the hobby and logging plays in 2003 only 2006-2008 have brought me more in numbers on the second month. Still it's bringing me down from my aim of at least 300 recorded plays during 2013, but after the ill-filled January it has definitely been a turn to the better.

I usually use the game with most logged plays as a poster boy for these geeklists, but this month I decided to give the spot for Arkham Horror. Investment of time counts at times, too.

Mittencon clearly gave February a boost. Surprisingly, because I didn't play much the other weekends this month, it still remained an OK month in total plays instead of being remarkable. However quality of these games played was off the charts. 4 games tied for most-played, and I like them all a lot. I won't waste your time talking about Hanabi and The Resistance again, since they're in my new-to-you entry. The one I think I'll recognize is Coloretto. All 3 plays occurred weeks apart, and this has become one of my favorite quick filler games when we only have a little bit of gaming time left. I've played it and enjoyed it with 2 players all the way up to 5. Excellent game.

I easily played Fleet the most in February. No suprised really since I'd just aquired it and wanted to try it out. Since it's such a great game it kept finding it's way back to the table.

Not a bad month for me. My play counts for December through February have been higher than anything outside the range since last April, so that's pretty cool. Two top games this month, but since this is Dominion's twelfth month topping my list and only Sticheln's second, I'm giving Sticheln the GeekList nod. I got my 50th Sticheln play in today. It's now topped the list of my favorite trick-taking games. There's (almost) no such thing as a bad hand, it's (almost) all in how you play it. Great interaction, risk-taking, and simplicity.

Two new life-time quarters: Thingamajig and Travel Blog. Also got to play two games I failed to play at all in 2012: Set and Settlers of Catan.

87 total plays this month.

22 plays, 19 unique games

I'm definitely a Feld addict. Bora Bora became available, and it jumped on the top of my played list of February. I had a chance to try several new to me games, such as 1889, The Cave, Snowdonia, Tahiti and Yedo. I also managed to make some dusting (TransAmerica, Phoenicia). Ah, and I did not play enough of Terra Mystica and The great Zimbabwe


3 Bora Bora
2 Loopin' Louie
1 1889
1 The Cave

1 CO₂
1 Guildhall
1 Gulo Gulo
1 Innovation
1 Libertalia
1 Locomotive Werks
1 Monza
1 Paris Connection
1 Phoenicia (last played 34 months ago)
1 Snowdonia
1 Suburbia
1 Tahiti
1 Terra Mystica
1 TransAmerica (last played 21 months ago)
1 Yedo


I only log F2F games.

Bolded games were new to me.

Games in Red had been gathering dust on my shelf for more than 12 months.

This one's an easy one, because it's the only thing we played in February.

Another great gaming month after January's 51 plays, February clocks in at 53 plays. Over 100 already, a great start for 2013! Commands & Colors: Ancients leads in the top with 18 of which most were solo. C&C:A is actually challenging Memoir'44 as my top game, but the verdict has yet to be reached. Some new games this month, but nothing especially note worthy.

Commands & Colors: Ancients 18
Love Letter 7
*NEW* Escape: The Curse of the Temple 4
BattleCON: War of Indines 3
Kingdom Builder 3
Sentinels of the Multiverse 3

33 plays in February, up 3 from January and keeping an early year average of a game per day (which I'll be very happy with if that's the case by the end of the year).


Bold games are new to me this month.
Italic games are yucata.de plays.

Just4Fun 5
Thurn and Taxis 4
Call to Glory 3
Commands & Colors: Napoleonics 2
Dragonheart 2
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age 2
Taluva 2
Through the Desert 2
Android: Netrunner 1
Elfenland 1
Field Commander: Napoleon 1
Kahuna 1
Othello 1
Phantom Leader 1
R-Eco 1
Sobek 1
Torres 1
Twilight Struggle 1
Two by Two 1


Of the physical copy plays I'm very happy to get a Field Commander Napoleon, Phantom Leader, Twilight Struggle and a couple of C&C Napoleonics onto the table in the same month. Not bad at all. Introduced a friend to Twilight Struggle and he wants to play again!
Also introduced friends to Elfenland (they really enjoyed it) and softly eased my wife into another Netrunner game. She enjoys it but needs to be in the right mood for it. Mustn't push it too much yet either as I just got the first two expansions so don't want to mess it up. It's the sort of game she enjoys more if she's given the chance to explore it at her own speed rather than me forcing it on her every day.

I've been logging my plays for about two years and this was my first month to crack 60 plays (63 total). Skyline took the crown by far, largely due to many solo plays. I've been looking forward to getting this game for awhile, but didn't plan on enjoying it so much as a quick solo experience. Also definitely excited to finally be getting Mice & Mystics to the table with my wife and kids. We're into Chapter 3 now and the kids are loving it.

5 Plays:
Mice and Mystics

Some variety this month and lots of games played for my standards. OK, less talk, more numbers.

Memoir '44 11
Dominion 4
Neuroshima Hex! Babel13 2
Pandemic 2
Thebes 2
Thurn and Taxis 2
Ticket to Ride: Europe 2
Airlines Europe 1
Arkham Horror 1
Blue Moon City 1
Carcassonne 1
Dominion: Intrigue 1
Dominion: Prosperity 1
Flash Point: Fire Rescue 1
Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery 1
Neuroshima Hex! 3.0 1
Small World 1
Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery 1

Newly acquired Memoir '44 gets the most attention in February. Each and every game felt as a different scene from WWII. The game is greatly appreciated currently. Let us see, if it changes when time passes.

Different types of Dominions combine for second place with 6 plays. And why not. The game's easy and everyone seems to love it. New for me, played just yesterday - Dominion: Prosperity - showed itself from the best side, but somehow takes away a little tightness of the base game. Everything is so big and expensive - our cheapest action card was at cost 4 (only 2 of them), all those platinums and colonies. Anyway, it's a good game and decent expansion.

3rd place for Neuroshima Hex! 3.0 and newly acquired expansion Neuroshima Hex! Babel13. I played 2 player games with both new armies in expansion - NewYork and NeoJungle - and lost both of them. Didn't catch the idea of NeoJungle at first play (got it served right into my face on second game). Eagerly waiting to put new armies together with old ones.

211 plays in February. Less than a third of January's madness, but still a large number of games, and actually more non-Love-Letter plays than in January.
