3. Board Game: WWE Raw Deal [Average Rating:6.85 Overall Rank:4997]

Looks like 123 plays of 10 different games, yet another new (bold) game added, although one that was supposed to get added a few years ago, just never got around to pulling the trigger back then.

WWE Raw Deal 46
Revolver 30
Resident Evil Deck Building Game 14
Battle Cry: 150th Civil War Anniversary Edition 10
Relic 7
Blood Bowl (Third Edition) 6
Thunderstone 5
Age of Conan: The Strategy Board Game 2
Elder Sign 2
Blue vs. Gray 1

Top-2 are rolling along solidly, nothing even close to them in plays. Resident Evil really made a strong return as I finally added the Mercenaries expansion (kind of a theme for this month, oh wait, not just this month blush ).

Battle Cry reaches its halfway mark of my second playthrough of all the scenarios, 30 plays down, 30 to go. First new game of the year, Relic also keeps on going, pulling out the more interesting scenarios (endings) for it.

Blood Bowl is back! Well, yes, finally got that Skaven team I've been looking for for quite some time, plus added and painted their Rat Ogre star player to boot. Speaking of additions, nothing new added to Thunderstone, but the Werewolves finally did show up in game #23 since adding them, then returned in game #25, so got to see them in action twice this month, after failing to draw them two months in a row.

AoC is a game I was interested initially when it came out, but for some reason interest waned and didn't buy it at the time. Partially I blame BGG, stupid PBF caught my eye angry . Still, coming in late, got it for lot less than what I would've paid originally, so, win? Like a few other games, Elder Sign saw a resurgence after getting the two Promo cards from the Arkham Horror/ES books by FFG.

And to finish off the month, another fast game of BvG, Union at least got a commander out this time (lost in two turns previous month after failing to draw a commander), but with the West opening up right away, couldn't defend East and West with a single army, so another two turn loss.

Some nice gaming in April and lots of variety this month.
About most played games:
Formula D - 4
Newly acquired racing game was played and tested some times. It is quite OK and will see some playing time again.

Coloretto - 4
There's always time for some little filler and this slowly becomes the most popular one.

Dominion: Prosperity - 3
Actually I am not a huge fan of this Dominion. Too big numbers, to many combinations, too many points and so on. But my gaming group likes it very much, so we will see this one in most played section almost every month.

The New Era - 3
I start to enjoy this game more and more. Races are quite different and there are pile of strategies how to achieve the main goal - win the game.

Also played:
============
Blue Moon City 2
Carcassonne 2
GiftTRAP 2
Android: Infiltration 2
Kill Doctor Lucky 2
Last Night on Earth: Survival of the Fittest 2
Ra: The Dice Game 2
Small World 2
Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 3 – The Heart of Africa 2
Tortuga 2

Bohnanza 1
Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery 1

C&C:A dominates with almost 20 plays - most solo. I have finished playing the battles of the first expansion and am now dipping my toes into the Rome VS Barbarian waters.

Other than Ancients, my 2013 is continuing strong with all months so far having around 50 plays. New games include Taluva, Keyflower and Manila, all which were pleasant surprises. I'm especially fond of Keyflower, I hope to see it hit the table more in May.

I'm not usually into this genre but the story of Mice and Mystics captured us. Can't wait to play this with my son when he's bit older.
Currently Mice and Mystics is on break though, we got frustrated after losing chapter 3 so many times despite playing better and better. Not used to so much luck.

9x Mice and Mystics
5x Terra Mystica -Currently favorite serious game, we play this regularly, twice a week

4x 7 Wonders -Leaders expansion brought new life into this for us
4x Love Letter

3x At the Gates of Loyang -One of my favorite games.
3x Legends of Andor -Another recent adventure game that doesn't suck, this one because of euro mechanics.
3x Pandemic -Trying out 2013 edition
3x Yedo -Currently 2nd favorite, after Terra Mystica

2x 1960: The Making of the President -Just bought this since it's getting rare, still learning.
2x Flash Point: Fire Rescue -Not a huge fan but it's a solid game.
2x Jambo -Still the best Kosmos 2p (with expansions).
2x Kingdom Builder -I'm still a big fan of this, to me it embodies SdJ game.
2x Lords of Waterdeep -Recently bought this, the theme kept me away for quite some time but it's solid gateway euro. Decided to sell Stone Age at last.
2x Power Grid -We got the Robots expansion and tried 2p with it, works well.
2x Reef Encounter
2x Saint Malo -Another new purchase, I don't want to play this often, but I don't regret getting this either. It'll be great portable game.
2x Seasons -I'm growing to like this more and more, can't wait for expansion.
2x Twilight Struggle
2x Dice Bohnanza -Didn't play this as much as last month, but I still think it's the best dicefiller of all time.
and bunch of games once, notably:
The Castles of Burgundy -I'd like to play this more often since I've only played half the boards and on top of that I got 8 more that came with Spielbox..
Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar -I'm trying to play more of this too..
Keyflower -..and this.
CO₂ -Another new purchase. I really liked Vinhos, but so far I like this even more.

26 plays, 14 unique games

Coup, a brilliant bluff/deduction multiplayer crazy filler took our group by storm. I finally got the chance to start exploring Terra Mystica. Kingdom Builder: Nomads is a good addition to the game (though I would non recommend the fifth player!). Oasis was a pleasant (definitely not memorable) experience. Did some dusting (Caylus, Modern Art, Snow Tails), and some playing with my children.

7 Coup
6 Terra Mystica
2 Snowdonia
1 Caylus (last played 29 months ago)
1 Clash of Cultures
1 Hansa Teutonica
1 Kingdom Builder + Kingdom Builder: Nomads
1 Modern Art (last played 13 months ago)
1 Monza
1 Oasis
1 Snail's Pace Race
1 Snow Tails + Snow Tails: The Leap of Death (last played 25 months ago)
1 Sushizock im Gockelwok
1 TransAmerica


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.

200 plays of 102 distinct games

With my children at home for most of the month, gaming over the Easter weekend, and a friend turning up for a couple of days gaming mid-month, it's been another high month of gaming. 30 plays of Magic the Gathering to start the month, and a total of 58 with my children, mostly with my 3 year old, who seems to think days when he's not at preschool are days of gaming with him right now!

All games listed that I've played two or more times, or the list gets too long. Those in bold that I've played with adults, those not the ones I played with my children. New games to me this month marked with a star.

30 plays:
Magic the Gathering

12 plays:
The City

8 plays:
Race for the Galaxy

7 play:
Gulo Gulo
Innovation

6 plays:
LEGO Creator

5 plays:
The Merry Game of Floundering
Ubongo

4 plays:
Escape: The Curse of the Temple
Flash Point: Fire Rescue
(received as a gift this month!)
Sunblock

3 plays:
Crazy Chefs
Kleine Fische

2 plays:
7 Wonders
Brass
Factory Fun
Haggis
King of Tokyo
Lords of Waterdeep
Quarriors
Ra
Sherlock Holmes: the card game

Cranium Conga
Heroica: Fortaan
Memory
Snakes and Ladders

Dominion= 7 Plays

This is getting more and more plays, with its accessibility being the main reason. My wife and younger kids now know how to play it, as do all the gals at the FLGS. I’ve also begun using the randomizer I downloaded from BGG, and will incorporate the Dominion: Hinterlands and Dominion: Cornucopia expansions more.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple = 6 Plays

I’ve taught the gals plus my nephews how to play this. The next step is to play more games using the curses and treasure rules!

7 Wonders = 3 Plays

This continues to be a favourite at the FLGS, and thus continues to see regular plays.

King of Tokyo = 3 Plays

I start to bring this out again, as I want to find out the effects of the King of Tokyo: Power Up! expansion. Pandekai wins 2 more games before finally falling to The King in the last game!

Agricola = 2 Plays

I got in 2 games of my 2nd soloplay series while travelling abroad. I now need to bring this out again for regular multiplayer play!

The Castles of Burgundy = 2 Plays

Should continue to get plays in both the FLGS and in the house. The 2nd game with my 2 kids played out very smoothly, and my wish is to teach this to my wife someday!

Pandemic = 2 Plays

2 Plays this month, 2 losses. Got to try out the purple cubes as the mutant strain (from the Pandemic: On the Brink expansion), and that really did increase the difficulty!

Through the Desert = 2 Plays

Tight gameplay from this Knizia abstract equals and enjoyable game each time!

Ticket to Ride: Europe = 2 Plays

Both games were played using the Big Cities and Warehouse and Depot rules from the Ticket to Ride: Europa 1912 expansion, which nicely added something new without drastically affecting overall gameplay.

Zombie Dice = 2 Plays

This still remains the ultra-portable and ultra-quick filler while on the move.

Notre Dame = 1 Play (NEW)

My latest Feld acquisition got its first play, and it was enjoyable! Can’t wait to get it to the table again!

Airlines Europe = 1 Play

The very tight, competitive, and enjoyable 4P game we had of this last month means that this game should be brought out more!

Cosmic Encounter = 1 Play

Got to play this with the Cosmic Encounter: Cosmic Incursion expansion. This play was better than the initial game last February, and I hope this will continue to be the trend as I try to bring this out more.

Eclipse = 1 Play

Got a 2P game with Kent, using the Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients expansion. Kent got his first ever win, using the Magellans, which not surprisingly has become his favourite race.

Glen More = 1 Play

The 1 play of this last month continues to show how much I suck at this game!

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game = 1 Play

The gals and I fail to stop Loki from creating Dark Portals in the city!

Macao = 1 Play

This game with the gals went much smoother. I managed to win again!

Morels = 1 Play

My son Shawn surprised me by asking to play this, as this was last brought out in January. The result was that I had my highest score ever with 67, although Shawn didn’t do too bad with a score of 52!

Puerto Rico = 1 Play

Julie continues her mastery of this by being the Shipping Queen of Corn!

San Juan = 1 Play

At least I do better with Puerto Rico’s younger brother, as I win the tiebreaker in a VERY tightly fought 3P contest!

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game = 1 Play

Shawn debuts the Y-Wing and Horton Salm, who blows up my debuting Turr Phenir with the very first shot (a proton torpedo) of the game! Mauler Mithel and the Night Beast later fall, but not before shooting down a Red Squadron X-Wing and damaging Horton’s Y-Wing!

Thunderstone Advance: Towers of Ruin = 1 Play

A VERY close 62-61 win versus Mowtil the Lich Lord marks my lone soloplay of this for April.

April had me log 43 plays of 22 different games.

Nice upswing from last month. A large percentage of this has to do with my brother's visit, or as he referred to it "Lott-con 2013". We are so lucky to just spend these weekends together having fun playing games as a family. We did play a few games with friends as well, but it seems nowadays we're only fitting in like 3 games per night with friends because we don't usually start until their kids are ready for bed. It could get interesting when those kids start getting old enough that they can join in the gaming too. I had a 2-way tie for my top spot, but I'm giving the nod to Ra: the Dice Game. Dark Ages will get talked about in my new-to-you entry, and I think Ra is becoming my wife's favorite game so it will get played every single time I bring it to a game night.

Big jump in games played, 2nd most per month since I've started gaming. This is explained by attending a convention this month (JAB 2013), the first "Saturday Game Day" event at the game club, and a game night at a friend's place.

Why Coup? It was my discovery of the convention! Reading posts in the Love Letter reviews and comments, I learned about the game and ordered it. I received it just in time for the convention, and really enjoyed playing it.
