This year Cindy and I spent the holiday season in Hawai'i. So,of course, there was the promise not to get anything for each other. "The time spent together would be special enough."

Right. Turns out she ordered a special rugby jersey for me so it was a good thing I did this.

I took some photos of games she likes to play and made a couple of calendars for her. One to hang up at home and one desk top one for her at work.

I'm hoping her having one there might even interest some of her fellow workers enough that we may aquire some new gaming partners.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share the photos.

I used the large Start Player meeple for the cover. I called it A Year in Games and the meeple is certainly a symbol of the games we play.

We used to play this quite a bit but as we grow older and our hands get a little shakier, we haven't played in a while.
But an Inukshuk is something we've seen on many hikes and it makes me think of the Arctic so it was fitting for January.

Cindy loves the sheep pieces. And what could be more fitting for Valentine's Day than two sheep in love?

If you ask her, Cindy will tell you her favourite game is Power Grid.

One of the reasons Cindy likes this game so much is that for the longest time I could not beat her at it. I have managed a win or two now but she still is the champ.

Again, the pieces in this game make it for her. Beautiful and cute.

This is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings so this was an easy choice. Cindy likes the 2 player Axis and Allies games, this one especially.
We visited Juno Beach in 2007 and it was one of the most solemn days together. Without a doubt we think of the graves we saw when we play this.

The playmat is from Wings of Glory.

Another game I seldom win. Another reason she likes it so much. That, the gears and the cool blue skulls.

She is definitely a Stephen Feld fan. I am too, but she likes this game much more than I do.

We named our first daughter Arwen, so it goes without saying we are both big fans of Lord of the Rings. This was our first co-op and though it doesn't get played as often as I'd like, it's still a favourite.

The Nazgul figure is from LotR: the Nazgul.

Another game with sheep, which Cindy usually manages to keep in her house. I used the pumpkin and pigs since those are the colours mostly associated with Hallowe'en.

Camels are almost as good as sheep to Cindy, so this game is liked. I thought 3 camels would be appropriate for December.

The board is from Oasis.
