On my shelf sit several sinfully scintillating games... or so I hear.


This personal challenge will be about getting those games to the table which have languished, unplayed and unloved, since their purchase (though I will throw in a few that I both have not played and intend to acquire in 2015). Inspired by the Alternative 2015 Challenge Lists.


So here you have it, Alana's 15 Unplayed Games to Hit the Table in 2015!


Comments/opinions/suggestions welcome.

I've wanted to play Alhambra since watching the relevant TableTop episode. No one in my weekly gaming group owns this game, however, so I'll have to pick it up. Looking forward to giving it a try!

Biblios is another game that I have yet to add to my collection but intend to buy in 2015. The theme strikes a chord with me, a bibliophile if ever there was one.


December '14 Update: game purchased and ready


January 1st, 2015: Biblios has been played!

Now this is a goofy filler game that I just cannot wait to bring out for my friends! It's in the mail so I should have it in my grubby hands quite soon. Waiting for 2015 to begin will be the hard part.


Update: Cat Tower has arrived! Only 2 days to go before I bring this out. It's a must-play for the New Year's Day gaming party I'm throwing.

Sea of Blood has sat on my shelf for a while without seeing any action. It's hard to get people to play the old Descent now that people in my group have the 2nd edition so I'll have to push for this to hit the table. Hopefully it's worth the effort!

My brother gave me Dominion for Christmas a couple years ago but I just never got around to playing it. This year I am determined!

Middle-Earth Quest is the game I'm most excited to see finally being played.

Sometimes I open up the box just to look at the gorgeous game board.

Another game I intend to purchase in 2015 based mainly on the theme is Musée, though I have heard good things about the way it plays as well.

Not only is the theme/history of Navajo Wars fascinating, it looks to be an excellent game. On the definitely-gonna-purchase list!


December '14 Update: An order for Navajo Wars has been placed and I'm waiting for shipment.


January '15 Update: The game has arrived!

People keep telling me Seasons is a fantastic game but then they never want to play it. 2015 is the year I'll insist this comes out!

This is another one I like to pull off the shelf to admire the lovely components.

Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan may be troublesome to acquire but I'll do it anyway after recovering from post-Christmas budget shock. Very excited to try it! The gameplay looks great and the game centers on a conflict I find very historically interesting.

Terra Mystica is on order right now so I sort of own it, or will soon. At any rate, it'll be fun to play!

I'm practically drooling just thinking of the heavy box full of wooden bits and bobs...

Update: My order was canceled but luckily my mom went and bought it for me for Christmas. Huzzah!

The gears on Tzolk'in's game board simply fascinate me. This one is a must-play.

A fairly recent acquisition, I nonetheless wish to be certain that Vinhos gets some play time in 2015.

Talk about a great theme!
