These are the games I'm playing at origins this year. I'll update as I play. SO excited to get over there Thursday and shop and play.

Really hoping to check off some of the games on my WMReed's Hundred Game Challenge - 2014!

This was my first play of Bruges. I enjoyed it quite a bit! Thanks for inviting me, Leslie!

I purchased this and played this several times throughout the weekend. It's a simple strategy game. Well worth the $15!

One of the best experiences I had at Origins! It was taught by a Plaid Hat Games representative, and we were joined by Eric Summerer, of The Dice Tower, as well as 3 others.

I am really glad I've pre-ordered this and can hardly wait until it arrives!

Dead of Winter has tense game play as one considers who may be the traitor, or if there even is one. The exposure die caused several tense moments as well, causing the deaths of several survivors (though not the elimination of any players). In the end, we completed the group goal, but only 3 also met their personal goals. I, alas, was not one of them; on the last turn zombies burst into the library where my survivors were hunkering down and killed the one who had my needed items.

Redesigned, and improved edition of Nay-Jay!. if you like quick flipping games this is fun, and it has rules to compensate for those of us (ME) that aren't as quick. It works.

Played a game at Stronghold's demo tables. Had a strong real-life auction feel, and was lighter than I expected. Not a bad game, but not exactly what I expected. Party-game-like.

Felt like an advanced Uno-type game. Not complicated, but having strategic ways to shed more cards and try to mess up the next player.

Gimmicky with solid gameplay! This is one of my favorite designs of his! Looks kind of like a kids' game, but it's not.

Tried this is the Boardroom with three others.

Rules were a mess, I thought. We struggled to figure out the trophy rules (Why would you call some trophies and something similar challenge trophies?!)

We decided we were done by the middle of the second round. So sad, because I REALLY wanted to love this game. It looks so beautiful, and has such a cool theme.

Entertaining, but not $40 worth of fun. Box of cards and poker chips.

Beautiful art and components, but I couldn't bring myself to spend $40 on it.

Played a demo of this in the exhibitors hall. Finally, a deck builder with true interactivity!

If there hadn't been so many CABbies who had already purchased it, I would have bought a copy. But this won't get played at home, so I let it go by.

I will play it again, though, if anyone asks.

to a game of Summoner Wars. I really had him on the ropes for 2 or 3 seconds. He crushed me. Damn goblins.

I really appreciated the chance to get some thoughts on how to more effectively use them, though. Thanks, James!

Got a chance to play one game of Tichu this weekend. Lost but my partner and I almost came back from an early run of bad luck and skilled play from our opponents.
