My son got Super Munchkin for Christmas and we've played a couple of times. He asked to play last night so we did with my daughter. I realized after we finished it was our first play of the new year.

It got me thinking; So what was your first play of 2014?

My son loves Munchkin and was asking for this for Christmas. We've played a couple of games and have enjoyed both times.

My game group gets together every New Years Day for a day of gaming. There were 7 of us, so we split into 2 groups. Four played Settlers (with expansions) and three of us played Tzolk'in. I was part of the Tzolk'in group. We then followed it up with Copycat and Dread Curse.

usually hosts a day of gaming on New Years Day and gladly my gf and I were able to make it this year.

I started off with a 2 player game of this new Race expansion with our host while Cass played Concordia. I'm undecided whether I will keep this game. Race for the Galaxy is my favorite game but this new version kind of leaves me cold. The exploring of the orb seems to be a lot of effort for not a lot of result. Slows the game down quite a bit as well.

Later played Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia (interesting brand new worker placement game with unique twists), Eight-Minute Empire: Legends (excellent filler), Asara (an excellent under-appreciated game from Kramer and Kiesling), Bios Megafauna (a new favorite for us), and Terra Mystica (another recent fave). It was quite a fun day!

Same as RnR, above, except for the games played.

I started with Concordia, a new Gerdts that I've been wanting to try. No rondel, but very good just the same.

Next was Strasbourg, which wasn't bad for a Feld.

I then finally got to try Asara with the full complement of players. It's puzzle-like with 2 and much more competitive with 4. Enjoyable either way.

A couple of folks indulged me by playing my latest favorite, Bios: Megafauna. I can't believe we're still finding things in the rules that we're doing wrong.

The last game of the day was Terra Mystica. RnR won this handily as the Dwarves. He wins it consistently when we play with 5, I win when we play with only 2, and yet the game doesn't feel all that different with the different player counts.

Many thanks to Gnurd for hosting. Even more thanks to RnR for driving us home at 1:30 am through the snow.
