It has been a long time (by "long time", I mean, over a year) since I've been to an honest to goodness game convention. And I'm excited to be attending BGG.CON this year. In order to pass the time until BGG.CON, I'll be creating a series of GeekLists to countdown the days until BGG.CON is upon us.

This GeekList will be highlighting days 46 through 40. During these days, I will be listing my 46th favorite game through my 40th favorite game. You are welcome to comment, agree, disagree, display maturity, display pedantics... whatever. I just want to place mile markers down until BGG.CON

For those of you attending, I'll see you there. For those of you not attending, hopefully I'll see you there next year.

Thank you for allowing me this indulgence.

Game #45
Hearts

Taught to me by Chase Cook and Mike O'Brien, the night before the Obon Festival in Yokkaichi, Japan. Chase and Mike had both worked at pizza places and were sharing gory and disturbing tales of the horrors of working in a pizza joint, all the while teaching John Fischer and I the rules. All this and playing Hearts until the wee hours o' the morning... great times!

I was in Japan as a missionary. I think I taught more people how to play Hearts, than I did the gospel... eep!

Game #44
Before I Kill You, Mr. Bond

The humor in a James Ernest game usually lasts as long as it takes to explain the rules to other players. Not BIKYMB, this game still cracks me up. Maybe it's because I don't play it as often as I would like. Maybe, it's because I'm a James Bond nut. I dunno, but this is one Cheapass game that never faded for me.

Game #43
Star Warriors

The game that brought the term "Double Jink, Double Roll" into my lexicon. Thanks to Nate Pomeroy, this game has been a favorite of mine for nearly twenty years. One time we decided to see who's favorite *-wing fighter would come out on top. I can't remember which fighter one, but we had a great time. This game can be a bit dry at times, but it's still a great play!

* Insert A, B, X or Y here.
