It was my birthday in September, so there were lots of new games around my table this month. Unfortunately, most of them were quite popular too, so not much to add to this list. What did YOU play that no-one else did?

The instructions are, as always:

Quote:
Look at your plays for the month of September, and then check out the games and see if you can find any games where you are currently the solitary logger of a play for September (or if the other loggers were actually in the same game session with you). Use your common sense in order to make the search faster. Obviously things like Dominion, Magic, etc. will have plenty of people playing them. Note: expansions that only you logged are fine, feel free to add them as well.

Then share any comments you might have. Are we missing something? How could this happen? What is your opinion of the game?


Subscription Thread = Games Only YOU have played Subscription Thread

I will continue to tip interesting, unusual or fun Geeklist items at my discretion and until I run out of GG! This may happen quite soon unless I get a generous tip or two (hint, hint).

Anna and I played this clever deep minimalist abstract strategy game last night as the last game of our September monthly tournament.

Each turn, move one piece so that its group becomes closer to its nearest neighbor. Win by having no legal move - usually because you've joined all your pieces into a single group, but possibly because the opponent has unwittingly divided the board into separate regions, such that you can't move your remaining groups closer together.

The game is well worth trying and needs only a square grid plus black & white stones.

It was also selected as the game for programmers to write AI players to compete in the 2015 CodeCup.

Because we're already October, you can't just watch the "games played this month" stat on the game's page but need to copy the URL where it points to and change that to September

Example :

Original : http://www.boardgamegeek.com/playstats/thing/40823/2014-10

Change to : http://www.boardgamegeek.com/playstats/thing/40823/2014-09 and have a look

In this game's case all the players involved in "my" game logged their play

A good game that came down to the wire with a stand-up last die roll to determine victory. That said, there's half a dozen parts in it that could have used some extra polish.

All plays were myself or folks I played with. A real gem that I was glad to acquire. It had been on my to play at bgg.con list, but after reading the rules, a copy showed up in the marketplace and I couldn't resist. The VP chips leave something to be desired, but otherwise I'm enjoying it - and cementing my position as a terrible area majority strategist.

Also only myself or my group for September:

Just the one for me.

A little-known Michael Schacht game from a couple of years ago.

Kind of a cross between Finito! & Keltis: Der Weg der Steine Mitbringspiel.

First play ever for me. Played with 3 as I recall reading somewhere that this was best with that number. Played with the right crowd. Had fun. Maybe a little long for what it is. Definitely improved by Doris' artwork.

Best described as a simplified version of Evo (which was also released in 2001)?

Not leaving my collection as it has sentimental value because it was purchased with birthday money from my grandmother years ago...

For the second month in a row I was the only person to play this one. I have not had much luck at game nights getting people to play it either. I think the art/card design is detracts a bit too much for some people.

Given how unknown this game is, I am not surprised that we had the only play. This is a hidden gem though and a lot of fun.

Given that this game can be bought in Target and Walmart I am surprised we have the only recorded play. Then again it is not much fun, so maybe it is not that surprising.

It has been way too long since I have played this game. It has a fun hand management game that brings out the theme well. It is a pity more people are not playing it.

I was the only one to log a play of Gnostica in September. It was my ninth play toward my 10x10 challenge.

It was a speedy four-handed game (40 minutes), where one player claimed a win and got eliminated, and I was in position to exploit his sudden absence. (In the photo below, I am yellow, and it is the green player who is fated to overreach.)

I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record...

I played Exit a couple of times with my daughter and few times with my mother this month. It's a good game, good way to spend a few minutes. Not too deep, but you have to do some planning ahead on your movements.



Also, with my parents visiting for a weekend, that meant Pegs and Jokers was played. Their favorite game, bar none.
