It was the end of a year 2012 when we agreed with a friend of mine that it is right time to open the second FLGS for his company www.iHRYsko.sk.
The first one he runs in Bratislava (capital). I opened the second one in Banská Bystrica, small and beautiful town in the heart of Slovakia.
We run 3 boardgame clubs a week and I noticed that I play many more boardgames than I used to. Don't get me wrong I used to play a lot, especially because we share this hobby with my wife. But in one moment I realized that I play at least one game per day.
So with 1.1.2013 I started to keep track of my plays and I wondered if I am able to hit 365 plays in a year.
Well, I managed to cross that line tonight exactly after 8 months.
These are the games I played.

We love this game. It's our favourite card game at the moment. We own the nice looking IELLO version + we've just got Echoes expansion that adds tons of new cards.

Another game we enjoy playing at home. Although many people would say that they don't like 7 Wonders as a 2 player game, we think it's still great. It's little bit more fiddly but it adds another layer of tactic when you try to think how to trade with (understand: steal money from) the neutral city the best ;-)
It also helped that we held a 7W tournament in our shop some weeks ago, otherwise this game would end up with 15 playes or so.

One of the things we like about games is when they narrate a story. And that's what this game does the best. We love Tolkien's books, cooperative games, deck-building games, fantasy CCGs, good illustrations + games that are difficult. This game has it all! It will cost us fortune to complete it but this together with War of the Rings: Collectors Edition are two games we will never get rid of.

This is one of few games on this list my wife hasn't played yet, but knowing how much she likes Battlestar Galactica, I know she will like this one too.
We play it a lot in different clubs and it's just fun. I am only dissapointed how quickly the tiles wore off.

I'm not a MtG player as you can say from the number of plays. Still I enjoy a good draft amateurish tournament or a friendly duel here and there.

What a great filler! Everyone loves it. If I had them I would sell dozens of these. It's a shame it's so hard to get these days.

After first play I was dissapointed. I was warned this game was designed so that also kids can enjoy it and it felt like it is way too easy. Oh how wrong was I, this game is tough to beat and I love it! We finally mnanaged to rescue Meeps and there is more to come!
I don't mind replaying the same scenarios over and over again (only the first one is too long for an introductory game).
This was a pleasant surprise of this year for me.

Unpublished Prototype stands mostly for Vlaada Chvatil's Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends we were testing through-out the year. I'm constantly surprised how different are Vlaada's designs. This one we like a lot and it will easily become one of our favourite games.
It will be published soon so you can start looking forward to it. I wish I could tell you more but I am sure guys and girls from CGE will flood you with more informations soon.

I'm still not decided if I like the game or not. I played so far only with pre-constructed decks and it felt too random for my taste at times. Still it has a great atmosphere to it and when we played close match I liked it a lot.

I played this one mostly with kids. Nice looking friendly game... unless we play it with my collegue. Then it becomes a brutal backstabing game after which we don't talk to each other for the rest of a day ;-)

Did I tell you we like cooperative games that narrates some story? We like this one in coop mode. Sometimes it drags for too long (especially with expansions) but it is still one of our favourites!

Probably the only abstract game in this list. I re-themed it, so instead of grasshoppers there mages teleporting themselves across the field, instead of ants there are assassins etc. and we play it often in tavern during our LARP games.

Another game I am not sure whether I like it or not. Well, I like how it plays it's a solid game. It just the fact that anytime I see the box I expect different game inside.
