This month my hope was to do some catch up learning some of the new-to-us games picked up over the past year and that did not quite happen as much as I had hoped.

The first weekend turned out better than I would have hoped as I got to spend one day gaming with my brother, and then another 3 hours introducing and playing games with a variety of people.

So here is what made it to the table at least twice this month.

I was a "good" boy this month and did not buy any new games!

This got taken to a family game day was a great hit. It is a lot of fun, easy to teach, and plays rather quickly.

Most Tuesdays I have time to burn in the afternoon so I brought this along to try and win. Got close once, but I always feel like I am playing this wrong....though I've learned that with most euro-games, if it played quickly, you've done something wrong.

During my brother's game day, we had to play this as he had never had a chance to try it. We managed two wins but boy were they close wins.

Got to introduce this one as well as my brother had hoped to bring the old ELECTRONIC DETECTIVE but was unable to find a set of batteries. So we got a chance to do a little detecting in two great games.

Love the game board and bits and this is worth bringing out now and then. The scoring can be a bit odd for new folks though.

Still being requested as a quick "let's play" something over dinner.

Another recent acquisition that we used as a warm up. Not a bad little strategy game.

Got to introduce this to my friend while waiting for his flight one nice afternoon. Of course, I lost both times!

It's that time of year for Halloween-themed games.

Finally got to play this and I actually like it. Not sure it is sitting as well with my wife, but we had two great close games and I think a few more plays will help make it something we play in rotation.

Dusted off this one after maybe 8+ years.

Certainly a fun bluffing game and it was a nice break from more thinky euros.
