Inspired by others who have started to do the same, I will also attempt to play through my games starting with 1 vs. 100 all the way to Zombie Survival: The Board Game.

I will lay some ground rules for myself.

d10-1My intentions are to have fun doing this, so I will not be bogged down by this adventure. There may be huge gaps of time before we get to the next game. If I can get a game in slightly out of order, I will.

d10-2Every time I play a game on my list I will update the geeklist with a description.

d10-3 Theresa and I rate the game. I will use a one-to-six rating:

1 "I will never play this again."
2 "I did not like that game."
3 "It was okay."
4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."
5 "Good game, I will want to play it again sometime."
6 "Great game, Let's play it again right now!"

d10-4 I will update (or explain why I am not) my rating on BGG.

d10-5 If I can not get a game to the table, I will sell/trade/donate it.

d10-6 I will post other info. # of players, time taken, fun quotes taken from the game, rules questions...

Special thanks to

Who knows what a frieze is?!?

Quick Session Report: My wife and I took turns playing this. She went first and won $240,000 because I didn't know an LTD is the equivalent to an INC. Then she knocked me out before I had an opportunity to stop with the frieze question. So she gets the $100,000 that I collected. This game is not good for two players. I think it might be fun with a group.

Me: 3 "It was okay."
Wife: "3.5"
Me: "You can't do that."
Wife: 3 "It was okay."

BGG Ratings: My rating was 5, it will remain a 5.

Keep/trade/sell: Game remains up for trade. I do not have high hope for any trade offers. Traders wanting = 0.

Game Details: 2 players, 12 minutes, 2 rounds.
--Unranked Game

Final score:
Me: $0

well, at least I know slightly more African geography.

Quick Session Report: Round 1. I am working my ten days from back to front. Works smooth and I win the round. Round 2. I am working from the front this time and get a little hung up. Theresa wins round 2. Round 3. I end up working from the back. I get days 3-10 set quickly. Then it seems every card I draw is worse and Theresa wins the round and the game.

BGG Ratings: 7

Me: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

Wife: 3 "It was okay."

Keep/trade/sell: Keeper. Should be a great game when my boys are learning geography.

Game Details: 2 player, 3 rounds, about ten minutes per round.

Why can't I get to Montana?

Quick Session Report: We decided to play the best two of three for this. First game Theresa goes first. My initial setup seemed pretty good. My last 5 days were set, my first two were good too. Just had to connect them. Never could. Theresa wins game 1.



Ok, I'm first, now I can tie it up. Game 2 starts awful. I don't think any of my days are connected. But just when I was facing a shut out it started coming together. I have days 2-9 set just need a connector to Montana. Theresa suddenly wins game 2.



Me: 5 "Good game, I will want to play it again sometime."
Wife: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

BGG Ratings: My rating was 6.5, I changed my rating to a 7. I vow to get rid of all my in-between rating....maybe.

Keep/trade/sell: Keeper for me. Great way to learn Geography. Want the other "10 days..."

Game Details: 2 players, 45 minutes, 2 games.

It is weird to root for Nixon!

Quick Session Report: Only played this twice before. Always seems to take a while to relearn it. Played this thinking I was losing the whole time. Turn 7, Theresa managed to shut me down with a card that doesn't allow me to play momentum and I couldn't play cp without spending momentum.
A very lucky Midwest swing helped me steal the victory!

Me:5 "Good game, I will want to play it again sometime."
Wife: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

2-5-8 (aka Nevo)

Where is Omar Shariff when I need him?

Quick Session Report: Let me start by saying I bought this at a yard sale for a quarter. Today I learned I overpaid. Boring. Unless you had two people that enjoyed the defensive struggle and constantly blocked every scoring opportunity, this was not interesting. I decided to gamble and attack an 8 point play and just see if it was a mistake. It was.

Me: 2 "I did not like that game."
Wife: 2 "I did not like that game."

BGG Ratings: This was unrated and I have rated it a generous 3.

Keep/trade/sell: Still for trade...will probably have to yard sale this one or donate.

"The game is afoot." Luckily they left obvious clues everywhere!

Quick Session Report: I am a fan of Sherlock Holmes. I am a fan of mystery games such as Clue. I assumed this would be a good mix of the two. I was very disappointed. I did somewhat enjoy the idea of the game, however I discover a game with very little pieces can still be quite fiddly. Slow turns, obvious clues made this a bore. Perhaps other games will be more challenging? However, I probably will never be able to get this back to the table to find out. Theresa beat me on a race to solve the "puzzle".

Me: 2 "I did not like that game."
Wife: 2 "I did not like that game."


BGG Ratings: Gave this a 3. It hurts to rate this so low. Really wanted to like this one.

Keep/trade/sell: This will go on the trade pile. Traded.

Game Details: 2 players, game #1, 35 minutes
--First Play (and last!)

Theresa: Solved

Best of three or until traded.

Quick Session Report:

Wildfire: I thought I had this one. Theresa wins again. She seemed to always draw the 1's and 6's and have decisions on placement. Also, wah!

Me: 3 "It was okay."
Wife: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

BGG Ratings: 6

Keep/trade/sell: traded! (before we could play the best of 3)

Game Details: 3 games in one. Very confusing to play similar games with different rules.

Final score:
Me: 56, X, X
Theresa: 62, X, X Winner.

Call me Mr. C

Quick Session Report: Big deciding factor early in the game where three company were about to merge. Right before my turn, a tile was played that made it possible for me to ensure the "C" was the big company which I was the firm majority holder. The "C" company went on to overtake several smaller...weaker companies and it became the company that ended the game at 41.

Me: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."
Wife: 4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

BGG Ratings: Was Unrated, will rate as a 6. Length of play time is main reason for lower rating.

Keep/trade/sell: Keeping one copy. I am not sure how often we will play it.

Game Details: 3 players, about 3 hrs. First play.

My wife is greedy and I can't swim.

Quick Session Report: We both fly through the walls, which was the right thing to do because the collapsed right after we got out. We both grab a three pointer near the lava. My wife goes for the big nine pointer that will lead to her death. I opt for the safe river that will rob me of all my treasure and then death. The boulder laughs at us it crashes into the exit.

Big fat draw.


BGG Ratings:8, now a 7. I still like it just not as much.

Me:4 "That was fun. I could be talked into playing it."

Wife:3 "It was okay.":

Keep/trade/sell: trade? Maybe?

Final score:
Me: Dead--Drowned at the bottom of the waterfall with my pockets empty!

Sometimes a cheap yard sale game is just that.

Quick Session Report: We quickly adjusted the point system so we could actually finish. Instead of 3-1-0, we used 4-2-1. This ad trivia game is from 1988. Best part is it is almost always on Seinfeld's shelf.



BGG Ratings: rated as a generous 3

Me: 1 "I will never play this again."

Wife: 1 "I will never play this again."

Keep/trade/sell: Tried to sell at my yard sale for a quarter.

Sheep, it's what for dinner.

Quick Session Report:
We haven't played Agricola in a while. If my memory serves me, Theresa always wins due to getting family growth first. So, I am bound and determined to win that race. I am first and doing well. I get my pastures set up and I have an advantage with animals. Theresa has early grain field and some animals. Philip has a mountain of wood, but no fence until the last turn.

I feel confident, I have animals, grain, veggies, and improvement points. I look over at Theresa's farm and somehow she has animals too. Theresa scored first with 40. Philip scores 39, a lot closer than I thought. My score.....38!

BGG Ratings: 10, a solid 10

Me: 5 "Good game, I will want to play it again sometime."
Wife: 6 "Great game, Let's play it again right now!"

Keep/trade/sell: permanent collection.

Agricola Lite---Animal Friendly, Faster, and no pesky eating!

Quick Session Report:

This game was the base game with the expansion: Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small – More Buildings Big and Small.

The four random buildings from the more building expansion were: Animal Trader, Hay Rack, Ranch, and Small Extension.

Game starts with Theresa winning the "coin" toss and going first. I am a little excited to already have the tiebreaker. (Any advantage is good at this point.) Theresa ends up with the Hay Rack, Small Extension, and 3 other buildings. I get the Animal trader and use that to sacrifice some sheep and pigs to get horses and cattle. Theresa has two completed land extensions and a lot of points on buildings. I also have two completed land extensions and have a big animal advantage.

Why do I wake up in a Dragon's Cave every day?

Quick Session Report: I got into an early lead and thought I blew it. The last turn had only one artifact and it was the gamebreaker!
We all put as much jewels as we could offer. I had the "get rid of even number" spell. I thought I could use it in the guard space, but everyone used 9's. The breakdown was Theresa:6 and 4 Philip: 4 and Me: 7 and 2. I used my spell. I was the only one left with a 7 chip. Great game.


BGG Ratings: 8, and it will remain an 8.

Me: 6 "Great game, Let's play it again right now!"
Wife:

Keep/trade/sell: Keeper, I need to get this out more!

Game Details: 3 player, about 2 hours (with interruptions)
