Friday = 6 Plays (NEW)

Bought in Malaysia, this got a lot of plays during my 2 week long business trip.

Love Letter = 4 Plays

The Resistance: Avalon = 4 Plays (NEW)

A big hit with my Warhammer 40,000 gaming group, this got 4 7P games in succession where evil won every time!

Airlines Europe = 3 Plays

Another surprising hit with my 40K group, this was requested several times and thus I expect more plays in the future.

Brass: Lancashire = 2 Plays (NEW)

This got to a rough start as the guys got confused by the rules, but luckily they agreed to a second game and things went much smoother (the video links I sent them seemed to have helped!)

Jungle Speed = 2 Plays

Ora et Labora = 2 Plays (NEW)

Played solo, the challenge would be to get a regular multiplayer play with this game!

Stone Age = 2 Plays

My 40K buddy Kent wanted to try a “caveman” game all of a sudden so I teach them this. They appreciated the dice rolling, simple play, and multiple ways to score points, so it was also a big hit with the guys!

Thunderstone: Starter Set =2 Plays (NEW)

Played solo, I am hoping that I can teach my wife this in order to get more multiplayer games of this done! In any case the cards themselves are simple, and the set should be a good introduction to the system.

Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 2 – India & Switzerland = 2 Plays (NEW)

Both the India and Switzerland maps were tried, with me liking the India map a bit more.

7 Wonders = 1 Play

Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small = 1 Play

Dominion: Hinterlands = 1 Play

The Adventurer’s Abroad scenario from HINTERLANDS was played.

Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients = 1 Play

First ever 7 Player game, and the top 3 scores were all Magellan players! (I was number 3).

Kingdom Builder = 1 Play

King of Tokyo: Power Up! = 1 Play

Pandekai is victorious (again!) versus Mekkadragon!

Notre Dame = 1 Play

Pandemic = 1 Play

Puerto Rico = 1 Play

San Juan = 1 Play

It seems this will get more play soon, as the 40K guys liked it (as they have also fallen in love with Puerto Rico recently).

Sentinels of the Multiverse = 1 Play

Village = 1 Play (NEW)

I’m now convinced to get the Village: Inn expansion even after just 1 play of the base set!

August had me log 41 plays of 22 different games.

I had 33 plays for August and this had the most with 3 plays. I played a lot of different games this month it seems.

Uno- 3 plays. My teenage daughter likes to play this.

Circus Train (second edition)- 2 plays. New to me. The components are really good in the second edition and this game is really great. Glad I bought it.

Fairy Tale- 2 plays. I really enjoy this card game. Wish I played it more often.

Lowenherz- 2 plays. Got a chance to play this again. Still enjoyed it but not sure if I will keep it as there are other area control type games that I would rather play.

Medici- 2 plays. One of my favorite games. Some luck involved but usually the better bidder will win.

August started out strong with us playing games a lot with family and with the local game group. Things slowed down quite a lot later in the month because we had a family trip that was a little too busy for gaming. I had 4 games tied for most-played. I'll give the entry this month to Ra: Dice simply because we could have played it 5 more times if I always brought it with us. It's basically Rikki's favorite game now.

Game - # of Plays = New to me

Around the World in 80 Days - 2
No Thanks! - 2

33 plays? I finally managed to hit the mark of an average of one game a day this month. It was the most plays I have recorded since May of 2011, and that was my last Kublacon convention month.

The goal would be to repeat it this month.

My most played game this month was Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, which was also a new game for me. A very fun game, that has some addictive elements like Heroscape to me. It actually reminds me a lot of Heroscape; not in game-play per se, but in the elements, gathering armies/squads, cool miniatures, etc.

The other thing about Heroscape it reminds me of is after you set up a game, you want to play a few more because the setup and take-down is longer than an individual game. It helps make it one of those games if you do play it during the month, it seems to be high on my posts on these Geeklists.

Another theme of all my posts on these lists each month, when I have a descent amount of plays, is that the game is one my son likes. If my son loves a game, it gets played a lot. My son loves this game. If he wasn't playing this game with me (when I was at work, etc.), he spent his last few weeks of summer vacation playing video games like Star Wars: Battlefront (2004), Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005), Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (I think I see a theme here). What is new is the side my son always wants to play. My son always wants to play the Galactic Empire when we play. I think he fancies himself a Sith Lord. Maybe the change is because he is a teenager entering High School, and wants to be a little rebellious (you think he'd like the Rebel Alliance then though )

Another quiet month but did see a large number of different games being played which makes me very happy.

All games are face-to-face only.
New games denoted by a .
'Risen from the dead' games (ie. not played in over 12 months) denoted by a zombie.

3 plays
Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery
Hoo boy, did this one just sneak into the tail end of the month. Fantastic game, my gaming group has tried playing all 3 different games modes (short, normal and long) - I personally prefer the 'normal' game which provides a good challenge but doesn't outstay it's welcome. Very enjoyable.

2 plays
Qwixx
Yet another dice game that serves as a nice filler. Enjoyable enough but I'm happy with Sutakku and Wurfel Bohnanza in my own collection.

1 play
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (2nd Edition) zombie
After 2 false-starts last year we finally got a group together to start playing this (myself being Overlord). I like it but I think I still prefer the 1st Edition.

Descent: The Road To Legend
Managed to get another mission done on this campaign after a few months break. Hopefully get to play it more this coming month.

Discworld: Ankh-Morpork zombie
I've never read any of the books but this game is quite fun, glad to play it again after such a long break.

Kingsburg: To Forge a Realm
Good old Kingsburg - been a while since we played but always good to revisit on occasion.

Wurfel Bohnanza
Pretty much my go-to filler game whenever we have a spare 15 mins or so. This one has gotten popular within my gaming group so I always try to remember to bring it.

Yspahan
A mate had a copy he was trading away so wanted a final play. Nice game that was enjoyable enough but with all the other options we have to play I can understand his decision to move it along.


In total, 8 individual games were played for a total of 11 plays.


Game of the Month
Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery holds the honor this month. Hope to see it get played even more in September.

Happy with the games played in August. Augustus has been a hit. A nice filler to start or end a gaming night, often several games played in a row. Also nice to have tried two new maps for AoS.
I'm especially satisfied with that I got to play a lot of my new games this month. 4 out of 7 hit the table this month.

Crib takes the spot again and I would like to say a few words about that. Crib is not my favourite game. There are many other games I would love to play more often than I do. The thing is, I regularly go and see a 70 year old man that has multiple health issues and is down on life. He loves Crib and I am happy to oblige him. I call him friend. So as long as he is around I may continue to have Crib be my most played game.

August came through with a solid 37 plays - well under my high for the year, but still comfortably beyond the average of one play per day.

Most played this month was the always excellent High Frontier, although only one was a play with another person - all the rest were solos in various forms, particularly the Hermes Fall solitaire scenario.

Best new play of the month was Kings of Air and Steam, which I'd had my eye on for quite a while and finally got to try. Even as just a 2-player game I loved it, and immediately bumped it to the very top of my wishlist. It's almost definitely going to be the next full game that I buy.

Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game x16
A good solid run for this month's decks (The Inner College, On the Take, Snaketastic, and Legation from Yuggoth). By the end of the month, I was ready to break them down and try some new ones.

Hive x6
(First and second place are the same games as the previous month.)

Summoner Wars x4
SW continued its upswing in play frequency this month, assisted by some cool Second Summoners.

Kemet x3--new to me
Loving this game. Hope to play it today!

Caldera x3
Aquarius x3
A couple of Looney Labs standards still chugging along in play with my daughter.

The Castles of Burgundy x2
Still a pleasure.

The onesies for the month, any of which I would have gladly played more of:
Elder Sign x1
The Awful Green Things from Outer Space x1
Hey, That's My Fish! x1

Games Played in August 2013
Magic: The Gathering x10
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer x4
Merkator x4
Carcassonne x2
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game x1
The Palaces of Carrara x1
Trajan x1 Out of the Dust

Expansions Used
Ascension: Return of the Fallen x4

It only takes an evening or two of Magic: The Gathering and it easily gets the most plays of the month. More impressive is that Merkator got as many plays as Ascension.

No new games this month, but my wife and I did pull Trajan off the shelf after a year...only to discover that the novelty of the Mancala had warn off and neither really care if we ever play it again.

Most Played in a Month Ever!
Ascension: Storm of Souls
Arkham Horror
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer
Carcassonne
At the Gates of Loyang
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
Agricola
Glen More
Hansa Teutonica
Imperial
Le Havre
Magic the Gathering

for each month game was most played.
