Ok, I realize 27 plays isn't much of an achievement. But I decided this year that I would attempt to minimize the terrible agony of "I don't know, what game do you want to play?" by, when I was faced with this dilemma, picking a game that:

A) Came next, alphabetically, from the last game I picked for this little plan.

and

B) Was a game we hadn't played yet this year (and preferably hadn't played in a while).

This is, of course, just a small part of our game playing so far; when we KNOW what to play, the rule didn't get invoked.

So, not much of achievement...but I still thought it was cool to make it through all the games!

We're now onto a second loop. I'm thinking we can get through a second pass this year...not sure about a third.

Loop 1 Completed: June 2013
Loop 2 Completed: September 2014

Numbers come before 'A' obviously. This also got more plays later, when we bought the Wonders pack, but at the time we had not played this in a while. Great game. Simple but enjoyable.

Last played: Just a few months ago.
Winner: Lisa with Byzantium (side B).

Hadn't played this challenging semi-blind bidding game in a long time! Great game, with lots of sneaky outmaneuvering the other players. This was one of our first purchases back when we getting into Euros.

Quick and enjoyable game. You can use cards for special effects, but you also need them to build to score. And because a building will have several players working on it, you really need to balance getting your points with avoiding helping the other players too much.

A great game of exploration and resource gathering, with leveling up a character and completing 'quests' to boot! We bought the German version of this back when it first came out. Luckily, there's very little language-dependent text. Later, Mayfair "upgraded" the game, changing a few tiles to speed up the game a little; they were nice enough to send us an upgraded tile pack.

One of the really cool features was the character editor, a downloadable program to let you create your own characters. The US version had an online version, but it really wasn't as usable.

Lisa bought me the hero packs for this for Christmas, and we hadn't gotten around to playing with them. Nice to have more variety of heroes. Defenders is fun - not as well designed as Pandemic, but fun nonetheless.

Last Played: Recently
We played twice; we lost with Hero pack 2 due to really fast general movement, then got a solid win with Hero pack 3.

Quick set collecting game, of trying to get color majorities and build up the money and sabres you need to capture other islands. Just slightly heavier than a filler.

Clever and light game of bidding to determine which adventurer you send on a quest for treasure and certain doom! The twist is that the "bids", rather than being straight numerical, take the form of "boasts", each of which impairs the adventurer a bit. "I can go into the dungeon hopping on one leg with one hand tied behind my back!"

We got this delightful sort-of-worker placement game for Christmas. Not really worker placement, since your 'workers' walk around the island needing to grab different buildings and resources. Lots of ways to build up your village.

Light pirate themed racing game, where you can fight the other players to steal their booty! A lot of luck to it, but it's easy to play and fun. I kept seeming to hit all the treasure islands - though that partly just gave me a bunch of curses.

Decent 'slightly heavier than a filler' game. Place tiles onto a common board trying to set up the board so your castles score points and other player's don't. Easy to learn and quick, with a dose of luck, but also a bit of long term resource management with your limited supply of castles. Another good 'over lunch' type game.

Solid worker placement game. Build buildings, gather resources adventurers. We leave out the Mandatory Quest cards for games with other than 2 players; too mutually destructive to the player and target. Each player having a secret objective adds some uncertainty to who's in the lead.

You can make fun of me for this one. Old kid's game. Wander around the mansion (which, granted, is kind of cool, built with big square tiles of different height for different building levels) trying to find the treasure, occasionally stealing cards from other players. Not much by today's standards, but there's a nostalgia factor that makes us pull it out every now and then.

Last Played: Jan 2012 (about a year ago)
Winner: Hmm...didn't record this one. I think I might have won, but I remember we were doing a LOT of stealing the treasure back and forth.

I hadn't told Lisa about my alphabetical plan, wondering if she's figure it out. She finally figured something out when she didn't feel like playing the first two 'n' games I suggested, and I revealed by plan to her. Now I'd have help figuring out with game to play next!

Tricky rondel game. Interesting interaction as some players buy goods and others sell them, driving the price up and down. Send ships out, upgrade your ship building and recruiting abilities, make money.

This was our first play with the promo expansion, Navegador: Pirates & Diplomats, which added a few interesting options. I think I'd usually add that one to the game.

Simple co-op card game. Not one we play much. It's fine, but lacks the kick of some other co-ops. We play with the variant that you can't communicate; trying to figure out how to help your partner is fun!

Played 3 games, as we were determined to win. We won on the third play.

Hadn't played this one in a long time! Purchase various gems, trying to score points by selling majorities of them. However, the more gems sell at once, the less they are worth. A few special action cards add some spice. A little fiddly. Not bad, but not great.

Simpler but very fun dice game; the dice can get you workers to build monuments and cities, food to feed your cities, resources, and...disasters! A bit meatier than most "roll three times" games, as you can get a lot of different special abilities and have a few resources to keep track, which the peg boards make easy to do.

Last play: 9/2012 (not very long )

Discovered this gem at BGG.Con. Players play 'clue' cards to narrow down treasure hunts. The more cards you played, the more loot you get when a treasure is found. It's easy to play, interesting to plan where you can best discover a treasure, and the pieces are gorgeous.

I had an early disaster though. I had a big treasure hunt complete, with several of my tokens in front - and the first draw was a curse! Ahh! No treasure for me.

We didn't have a clue how to play this when we started out. Fast moving game. A little odd since only two players (in a 4 player game) actually take real turns at a time. Multiply your iguanos and try to take majorities on islands. Lisa got a mutation to count her strength on an island as +1/2 (ie, winning ties). This wound up being a HUGE advantage which I did a lousy job of countering.

I want to play this again with more people!

An older co-op. Manage lots of resources to build technologies and components to figure out how to defeat a planet-eating creature. Like the gameplay, but it's got some annoying flaws. It's a bit fiddly, and better color and icon design would make it MUCH easier to play. Plus, it feels like the game goes so fast that you never really get to play with the techs or build up much. Still worth pulling out every now and then.

As is often the case with co-ops, we had to play second game after losing the first one.

Last played: February 2012

Problem. We have no good 'x' games.

Ok, we HAVE 'x' games, but they are not any good. But, I found this one from it's hiding place in the basement, figuring "eh, so it's kind of mindless, it can't be THAT bad".

After playing, I added this comment to it:

Note to self: Even if you are playing a game for each letter, and even if this is the only game you own for 'X', DO NOT PLAY IT. You will regret it.

Last played: Pre-2005.
Winner: Technically Brian, but I think in truth we both lost. Me even more for making us play this.
