Just like last year, I'm hoping to spend the last 2 months of the year working through the games in our collection that I haven't played yet in 2013. This way, I make sure that games don't just loiter on our shelf and if there is something I really don't want to play, it can make it into an upcoming trade.

I don't actually expect to make it through this list, but I like having a reference to keep me from being distracted too easily! Also, there are some games that we own because Duncan likes them that I never expect to play (like Blood Bowl and Mage Knight) so I've left those off this list.

If anyone has a particular interest in joining us for one of these games, please post here or message me letting me know when you're available and we'll try to set up a game with the recommended player count.

To keep track:

Nov 7 - List created. 88 Games to play in 54 days!

4 on Fri Nov 8 @ home: Kingdom Builder, Saga, Coloretto, and For Sale played
7 on Sat Nov 9 @ home: Quoridor, Quarto, Manhattan, Nexus Ops, Gridstones, Through the Ages, and Boggle off the list
4 on Sun Nov 10 @ home: Oware, Innovation, Rumis, Fluxx
4 on Sun Nov 10 @ Ryerson: Endeavor, Kakerlakenpoker, Container, Dutch Blitz
2 on Wed Nov 13 @ 401 Games: Olympos and Glory to Rome played

4 on Tues Nov 19 @ home: Resistance, Factory Fun, Amun-Re, and Nottingham
2 on Wed Nov 20 @ 401 Games: Zooloretto and Santiago played
1 on Thurs Nov 21 @ home: Vinhos learned and played
3 on Fri Nov 22 @home: Duck Dealer, Mille Grazie and Rummikub
1 on Sat Nov 23 @ home: 51st State played, 3 times. :-)
2 on Tues Nov 26 @ home: Risk and Alhambra played.
1 on Wed Nov 27 @ 401 Games: Maharaja.
1 on Thurs Nov 28 @ home: Alba Longa. 45 games and 33 days left.

4 on Tues Dec 17 @ home: Cuba, On the Underground, Bridge Troll, Navegador.
2 on Wed Dec 18 @ 401: Antike and Skip-bo.
2 on Fri Dec 20 @ home: Backgammon and Florenza.
7 on Sat Dec 21 @ home: Stratego, U-Build Monopoly, Caylus Magna Carta, Troyes, San Juan, Quo Vadis? and Mission Red Planet.
7 on Sun Dec 22 @ home: Royal Casino, Space Dealer, Falling, Apples to Apples, Blokus, Starship Merchants, and 20th Century.
6 on Mon Dec 23 @ home: Chinese Checkers, Tower of Babel, Plato 3000, Win Lose Banana, MacGregor and Phase 10.
3 on Tues Dec 24 @ home: Monopoly, 4-Mation and Earth Reborn. Leaves 2 games in 7 days!

With only 2 games left on the list, Cranium WOW and Die Macher, the year has drawn to a close and I'm forced to admit that I don't like either of these games enough to force myself to play them! Cranium will be going up for trade and Die Macher will be relegated to the games owned solely by Duncan, and thus not eligible for my once a year required play.

Bring on 2014!

I really think I'd need to be taught this game YET AGAIN to play it so if someone wants to set it up knowing that, I'd definitely play.

Nov 9: I didn't even realize this game allowed more than 4 players so I was definitely surprised when Pete suggested it when we had 6 people available, but we played it with 6 and it was really good still! Thanks for playing Jack, Christen, Hutton, Pete and Garett. :-)

Nov 9: We were fairly tired after 10 hours of gaming including a game of Through the Ages, so all we could agree on was a few rounds of Boggle.

I, as expected, lost horribly. I was even beaten by the guy who only found 2 words in the first round with 1 of the 2 not being a real word! :-(

Nov 10: The day started with our couchsurfer, Sean, saying he'd be interested in playing games, but much less so if he had to leave the apartment for them. So we decided to stay in and knock a few games off the list. Duncan jumped in the shower so we pulled out one of the few remaining 2 player games: Oware. Sean had played Mancala before so this was pretty easy to get into. I was off to an early lead, but he dominated the mid game, and it ended much closer than most abstract games I play, with Sean winning 25-23.

Nov 10: We reviewed the under an hour 3 player options and settled on a non-teaching game of Innovation. I surprisingly remembered most of the rules, but certainly didn't remember the cards or instinctually know which cards were best. I think I had a pretty bad start as both of my starting cards had "if you discard 3 cards, then.." abilities where Duncan and Sean both Dogma'd on their 1st turn. It was a much closer, and more enjoyable, game than I remember our previous games being, so we should definitely play this more often!

Nov 10: Another reasonably fast 3-player option. We randomized the board and thus ended up with the most boring option of the Tower. Sean dominated the entire game, ending with a score to 10 to Duncan's 5 and my 1.

I don't see myself playing this again. It's fun and really clever but La Boca has the same puzzle aspects, but in a much more exciting game. Time to trade this, or maybe give it to someone in my family as there are some Blokus fans who might enjoy it.

Nov 10: What can you say about Fluxx, except that it was very Fluxx like. I didn't realize the new version included creepers so I was a bit confused in the beginning, but it was actually a pretty decent game between Duncan, Sean and I where we were all close to winning at different times. Duncan ended up meeting the goal after a few so-close attempts, definitely a well deserved victory!

I remember playing this this year! Did my tracking of plays fail???

Nov 10: We went over to Ryerson after Sean left to begin his journey back to Waterloo. Played a quick round of Hanabi to get in sync with the ongoing games, then jumped into a 4 player game of Endeavor with Duncan, Dave B, Hutton and myself. Very close game with 58-55-51-53 being our final scores.

I'm not sure I've ever played this with 4 players instead of 5 before, and I really enjoyed the reduced tension on the board. Newly opened territories still filled very quickly but I would say it definitely had a positive impact on governor appointment, colonization opportunities, and card draw abilities.

Can't wait to play this again!

Nov 10: I do not enjoy this as much as everyone around me. We played a 7 player game (the rules specify 6 as the maximum but we chose to ignore that). Chris Bird lost. I think I only won cause I made a few lucky calls early on, then everyone was scared to pass to me so I got to sneak under the radar a bit.

I spent a good portion of this year trying to set up a game of Container with JP, but it never happened so I haven't played it! I do really like this game though so it will definitely be played soon!

Nov 10: Yep, I still love this game. We played a 5 player game with Duncan, Hutton, Tang and Chris Bird. Two of the players took loans in the early- to mid- game and seemed to have trouble getting rid of them, which may have cost them the victory. Tang and I went well past the half-way point of the game without buying a single shipments, despite bidding very fairly on each of them. That had me a little worried since we both ended up with far less containers than everyone else in the end, but we came in a very respectable 2nd and 3rd.

Will play this anytime!

Nov 10: We went to Salad King for dinner and decided to play a couple rounds of Dutch Blitz while we waited to order and for our food to arrive. I think I've learned many times already that a 4th player really is critical to this game, so our matches were a little slow-paced. I still want to play with 4 players before the end of the year, though this play was sufficient for this project.

yes, I'll play the good smallworld again!

Nov 13: I posted this geeklist on the 401 event, and there was some interest in Olympos so we decided to play that. I pulled out the game in the afternoon to refresh myself on the rules and it sparked a very interesting conversations with the couchsurfers from Brussels who are staying with us this week since he works with Philippe Keyaerts, which I obviously found fascinating.

It took us a little while to get underway since I wasn't familiar with the set-up of the game, and I forgot about the time token you receive when you are conquered which is a pretty major detail, but I definitely enjoyed the game and would want to play it more often. Also, without Duncan in the game, I managed to win by 1 point!

Glory to Rome!! This was supposed to be tabled at the Extra Life Marathon!

Nov 13: We grabbed this after finishing Olympos since one of the guys at our table was specifically interested in learning it. One of the reasons I think this doesn't get pulled out very often is that I thought the turn order was a bit illogical, making the teaching fairly complicated, but we had no problems last night. Maybe that was because it was a 3 player game, and most of our previous games were 4 or 5 players. Another reason is that the issuing of the black box edition made people less interested in playing the colourful version that we own and I greatly prefer.

It was a good game even though I finished last. :-)

Nov 16: Dave Brown, Shirley, Duncan and I played a quick game Saturday afternoon. It was close all the way, with Dave and I just barely winning because of a daring call of Grand Tichu!

I realized that I really don't care for this game and expect to add it to the math trade.
