Continuing through our game collection by year--a sort of review of sorts as the day will come when things need to be weeded out I suppose.

This is another great year for games too with a couple of favorites that get regular play here.

For those looking for a game with the feel of dominos, this one works quite well. It offers just enough challenge for a few great games and is fun to boot. One of the better games of the year.

Simply by the number of games we have played of this over the years, most uncharted here before I returned to more regular gaming, this is a favorite for us. It travels well and gets requested by people often. For me, I'd rather play this than Scrabble because it can be done rather quickly and you can hopefully convince folks to try a different game. Great filler nonetheless.

It took a while to get to this game, but having now played it this is a solid little game. With two, things can get bogged down in being unable to really build much and that was a slight problem. That said, both of us liked the sort of Stone Age style of worker placement that was going on here and felt it was a game that required more planning than the more recent SA.

Still "new" to us, but our couple of plays recently were rather interesting. I love the camels. I was surprised in our games with 3 how little some of the mechanics came into play. I am sure that with experience, more "take that" play would force you to think about different ways to get points overall.

Funny story. I got this at a B&N after Christmas one year for like half off. Obviously, someone had returned it to the wrong store for credit. Having never played the base TtR game, it was rather disconcerting to read about "as in the regular game" references. So it went to the side. But since then, the American map and the Swiss/India map have been added to our collection and this one comes out when we want a little variety to our TtR game strategy.

I know that with this 2006 list I'll probably lose what credibility I have for my game tastes. But, that said, I do tend to prefer Feld games and there is something about this one that is fun to play. I love the way it is organized to allow for quick setup. Even with the wrangling aspect, it manages to play very well and quickly. So a nice filler that I'd play anytime someone asks. (Maybe this is the gateway Feld game for younger players?)

I picked this up as we had begun playing TtR a lot and I was hoping to get a little variety. Verdict is still out whether my wife likes this one as much as I do. I think sometimes the extra "complication" makes it less enticing than the simpler and "easier" to remember TtR game play.

A 2-player filler with bidding. Another of our coffee house games that travels with us on little outings. I like it even though I rarely win!

We tend to like the Alea game series and I picked this up early in our gaming purchases mostly because of the theme. It seems a bit overly complicated at first and it sort of ended up at the bottom of the play list rather quickly. However, it may be time to bring it out for a reassessment again.

This was a rather unusual find new in shrink wrap. It is evidently fairly rare, so I'm not sure yet if I'm going to just leave it alone for now, or find a way to play it. It looks like a great abstract with awesome miniatures.
