This Geeklist is meant as a review of my gaming year 2013. 'But it's not yet the end of the year' you might say and of course you're correct, therefore i want to explain quickly, why it still is my Gaming New Years Eve 2013.

Earlier this year - on the 1st of January to be exact - i made a New Year's resolution: In average i wanted to play at least one game per day.

Of course there were days, when i wasn't able to play a game, but on the other hand, there were some days, when i managed to get some games under my belly.

Since this is meant as a private statistic to remind me of the highlights of my gaming year 2013, additional geeklist items are blocked, but your comments are very welcome.

So, lets get cracking...

The most important event in 2013 was the birth of my daughter Sara on the 5th of March. Life changed - in some areas more dramatic than in others, but all in all, it got much better. I wouldn't want to miss a single moment of the last seven months together with my wife and daugther. In terms of games Saras' impact was, that our (my wives and mine) preferences changed to fast games, which we could play in the evening after Sara went to bed.

My gaming partners in 2013 were (thanks for so many joyful hours):
My wife (one of the greatest moments of our time in marriage was, when we discovered, that we both enjoy board games - especially together)
My mum (once a month we're visiting my family and i'm always looking forward to play some games with her)
My sister and niece (every now and then we manage to get some games played)
My sister in law and my nephew (it's always a pleasure to play with them - especially with my nephew, since he's some kind of a natural gaming talent (he defeated us several times in 7 Wonders, when he still was about 6 years)
Several friends (since all our gaming friends also got babies during the last months, it's hard to find the time for game nights, but i'm looking forward to the time, when our childs are old enough to play together and we parents again have time to play some board games together)

There are games, which you don't expect much from, but then they hit the table and you're astonished, how great they actually are:
Friday - Great and quick little solo game
Timeline: Discoveries/Timeline: Historical Events - Those games went very well with my family
Rise of Augustus - Yes, it's bingo, it's simple, but it's addictive
King of Tokyo - 112 plays in 2013 (so far)... need i say more?
Elder Sign - Arkham Horror lite... although it is streamlined and rather compact and simple, it still creates this somehow special AH feeling for my wife and myself

Games, which i definitely didn't play enough in 2013:
Mage Knight Board Game - it's such a great game, that i'd love to play it more often, but since i even more want to spend time with my wife and baby girl, i can't commit several hours for one game too often
Legends of Andor - i'm not done with the game yet (so far i won scenario 1 and 2; scenario 3 i tried once, but failed; scenario 4 and 5 are still unknown to me)
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) - similar to Mage Knight, it's difficult for my wife and myself to find the time to get a few games of this under our bellies without neglecting Sara...
Smash Up - this is a fun game, regretably the two player experience for my wife and myself is kind of underwhelming...
