Hey everyone. Well, I have been logging plays for a while now and thought it would be interesting to focus on a single statistic revealed by this dangerous habit.

For those new to this, look at your played then hit "by game" for the month of March and see which one is at the top!

Then let us know why you think it is your top game for the month. Maybe it will change over time, maybe you have the same game consistantly, who knows?!

I'll start off with mine...

With 12 games under my belt, Incan Gold gets the prize of most played this month. The reason for this is my lack of work at work. We had a lot of downtime so I started a small gaming group in our corner of the open plan office, and while others are billing their clients hundreds of pounds each hour while slaving away, we played games instead!

Incan Gold was the first game I brought in and quickly became the favourite. Although my office game group cannot play loads of games in a day as we did occasionally have work to do, this hit the desk a lot and many times we had to restrain colleagues from shouting with joy as they raked in their gold etc. as there were people working hard not far from us and we did not want to get told to not play games in the working environment!

So, Incan Gold, it definitely got me through March and will see a lot of plays for the rest of the year too I presume.

With 6 plays Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game is the most played game in march for me. In europe it is very hard to get this game (because of license problems). So we were very happy to be able to add this one to our collection. It is a very nice game but for my taste it could be a bit harder (we love to play it in "pure cooperative mode"). Overall it is a very solid game and great fun to play - I think it will be played a lot more during the next months.

Took home Galaxy Trucker from work. (I work at a Community Center and have joined with the local library to run a monthly adult gaming night.) Some of my volunteers had taken it home but not actually sat down to learn to play and come back to teach it at the game nights. Once we got the basics of the game, it's a pretty straight forward, easy to play, FUN game.
So I've logged about 8 plays in March teaching people how to play. Our next official game night is 20 April and I'll be bringing it out there as well. It's a game that's great to win, but fun to lose as well.

I'm not counting Seasons because they were online only playes, so Mage Wars took the crown. I was actually starting to worry that I'd never play this game after having owned it for several months, but a knee-surgery and time off with a friend available to play got it to the table 6 times.

Settled leader with 13 plays (closest other game with just 5).

Why Memoir `44? Well, I've written it before already in GeekLists - somehow it just works great for 2 people. Each and every game feels as a different scene from WWII. The game is greatly appreciated currently and we always want to play it. I showed it to one other player from our gaming group and he also was full of enthusiasm to play it again.
We are still battling through base game scenarios, so tons of game experience to come and it seems possible that many expansions will be bought.

Out of the forty games I played, five of them were TGZ. It's a fantastic game and, now that it received a great review in Spielbox magazine, many more people will start seeking it out. I don't envy those that have to suffer "out of stock" notices.

The more I play it the deeper it gets and the better my vision is at predicting who's about to make a run for their goal which also helps to deepen my play.

Nice idea. Mine is Love Letter, as it has been for several months recently. The perfect 'play any time' filler, and a big hit at the pub with friends.

12 plays of BSG in March 2013

BSG is also my most played game (with 134 record plays) since I started intermittently recording game plays back in 2007.

Here is the games played tally for March 2013

12x Battlestar Galactica
4x Love Letter
3x Cards Against Humanity
2x A Few Acres of Snow
2x Warriors of God
2x Zombicide
1x 1812: The Invasion of Canada
1x Ca$h 'n Gun$
1x Hanabi
1x Lords of Vegas
1x The Napoleonic Wars (Second Edition)


One side effect of so many games of BSG is that the number of games played is lower due to the longer game length, shorter games means more games played.

My partner developed a bit of an obsession with playing and learning how to improve at this game. Consequently, we played it 7 times in 3 nights.

Add to that my regular gaming buddy playing it pretty frequently and I racked up 14 plays of this in March.

March was a good month for games, with a total of 211 games played, the third highest total since I started logging plays in 2011.

I know - it's technically not even available. I PnP a set (KS backers were given access to the prototype files). This one has become the "hot" game in ou house now. My sons love it - and my 7 year old has been known to wake up a little early and has been found playing DR solo at the DR (that's "dining room"...for now) table.

My most played game of 2012 made a strong comeback in March, after being shelved in favor of Le Havre in January and February. Will it stick around long enough to be my most played game of 2013? Right now, I am thinking Tammany Hall will power itself to that position. Time will tell.

Well, since it has been the big "prototype month" on several occasions for me - I haven't played any of my other games - as much as Burning Suns.
But that's the name of the game, when you want to be continually evaluating on the game play, usability and so on... and luckily the game is still great fun too

Have a great weekend,
Best regards Emil

10 solo plays in March. It is new and usually a solo game comes out on top for plays with me usually different each month. For plays with multiple people it is Shadows over Camelot (3), followed closely by Incan Gold, Black Sheep, Agricola, Agricola: All creatures big and Small, Small World, Zombies!!! 4 (All Tied at 2)

I actually had a tie of 11 plays each of Mage Wars and Sentinels of the Multiverse. Mage Wars is currently my favorite game, and those games of Sentinels were primarily solo, so I'm going to say that Mage Wars won.
