Hearts was my return to a loved game - I played a lot, A LOT, in college. But I didn't play it basically ever since. Once I saw it over on BGA, I thought it would be fun to play a game or two. And I was hook again! I just like it very much. And, by the way, I climbed to the top ranking there, which isn't too chabby.

Considering all plays (including online with other people):

1) Hearts x56 plays
2) Firenze x49
3) Vikings x43
4) Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age x34
5) Hanabi x33
6) Love Letter x33
7) Race for the Galaxy x33
8) The Castles of Burgundy x31
9) Glen More x30
10) Sentinels of the Multiverse x27



Considering only face to face plays:

1) Love Letter x33 plays
2) Sentinels of the Multiverse x27
3) Formula Motor Racing x24
4) Lord of the Rings: The Adventure Deck Game x19
5) Parade x17
6) Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set x17
7) Gears of War: The Board Game x16
7) Yggdrasil x16
9) Incan Gold x15
10) Galaxy Defenders x13



Notable near misses from the Top 10:

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective x12 plays
Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game x11
Black Stories x10
Arkham Horror x9
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) x9
Witch of Salem x9
Elder Sign x8
Splendor x8
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization x8
Dominion x7
Last Will x6



So, for the year, the numbers are:

January x94 plays
February x79
March x75
April x67
May x48 -- lowest number
June x61
July x106
August x132
September x94
October x96
November x140 -- highest number
December x76

Total plays in 2014: 1068 plays
Average plays per month: 89 plays

And that is it!

Good 2015 for everyone!

Regards,

While I don't think I played as many games in 2014 as in previous years, the sheer number of new games I played was surprising. A lot of it had to do with finding a group of like-minded 18xx players and one of them having a huge collection of them - many of which he has not even played.

In spite of all the 18xx, my most played game was The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, which I play regularly with my wife and one other friend. This year we completed the "Dwarrowdelf Cycle" and have now moved on the the "sagas". I could very well see this game being number one next year as well.

The Price of Freedom: The American Civil War 1861-1865 1

Total Plays: 1,373 (only down 52 from 2013, not too bad)
Different Games: 24 (up 2 from 2013)
New Games (bold above): 7 (up 5 from 2013, but net total isn't all that bad, sold off a number games as well)

Looking back on the musings on last year's entry, didn't dip below 20 different games, though more lowball numbers in terms of plays for the bottom end of the list than last year. Heh, Raw Deal even went up 10 plays.

Deck-builders took a combined hit of about 50 plays, RE being OOP (and dead), Thunderstone original not getting any new stuff (although I did pikc up the Promo Pack #2 at long last, hell, big reason TS got 20 plays) and Legendary having, for me, a disappointing year with its add-ons, only grabbed Paint the Town Red.

So far, 2015 doesn't appear to offer much in terms of new games. SW: Imperial Assault I'll probably pick up, but other than that, looks like sticking to the current batch of games, maybe grabbing expansions for them if ones I like are coming out.

According to my logs, I had 426 plays of 120 games in 2014. That includes 17 plays logged to Unpublished Prototype, which represents 12 games that have not yet been published or will never be published. In 2013, I reported 537 plays of 154 games. Much of the decline is because I joined the Executive Board of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society (CABS) in 2014; you can't play games while you're in meetings. But there were other factors. Still, 426 is a decent number. For what it's worth, I don't log online play or solitaire play.

Dominion returned to the top spot in 2014, with 45 plays. In 2013, it had slipped to second after dominating (no pun intended) the logs for 5 years. Many people have moved on to other games, so I keep wondering how long it's going to stay as a top game. On the other hand, I did teach it to someone in late December, so who knows.

Second most played, with 42 plays, was Sentinels of the Multiverse. It was third in 2013. I finally got around to rating it a 10. It fits the bill of a game I'm always ready to play, and it's a game that can prompt the phrase, "It's late and I probably should be heading home, but...."

Zendo was third in 2014, after briefly returning to the top spot in 2013. It's the most obscure of my Favorite Games, so it can sometimes be a challenge to get it to the table. We played a lot of Giant Zendo at Buckeye Game Fest, which I enjoyed immensely.

So my highest rated games were my most played. Gotta be happy about that. There's a big drop off after you get past the Top 3, especially if you ignore Unpublished Prototype, which you should. After 45-42-32, it drops all the way to 13. Hanabi is the game. It was in fourth place in 2013, too, but with a lot more plays. I enjoy playing it, but I'm not clamoring to play it, so I'm happy to have it right where it is.

In looking further down the list, I see a lot of games from my 10x10 challenge. I'm hoping to have a "10x10 Status" GeekList, so I won't go into a lot of detail here. I had 11 games on my 10x10 list, including one alternate. One of the games had only 2 plays--not unexpectedly; it was the reason I added the alternate. That would be Mice and Mystics. The other 10 games all had at least 5 plays each. No, not 10 plays each, I didn't reach the goal. I did have 10 plays of 10 games, so I did meet that lesser 10x10 challenge, but I only got to 10 plays of 5 of the games on my advanced list. The 5 games that were "only" nickels all had more plays in 2014 than in 2013, so in that regard the 10x10 challenge did what it was supposed to do. Mice and Mystics actually saw its plays go down from 3 to 2, but my reason for adding it had been, "I want to play something other than the starting scenario, which I've not done yet because we always have new players." At that, I succeeded, because both plays were scenarios other than the first.

For the full list of games, you can look at my logs. Here is the list of nickels and dimes:

Sentinels of the Multiverse 42
Zendo 32

The most played game for me in 2014 is a game that I don't even own... the Avalon edition of The Resistance.

It is not even a real favourite of mine, but it was played quite a lot in my groups it seemes - and 11 of the times I joined the play.

The second most played game of mine is Elevenses (9 plays).
And number three is Tic-Tac-Toe (8 plays).

Well, 2014 was the year of Qwixx. It's just such a fast game. I made my own copies before they came to print here in the USA, and we ended up playing so many games because it was just so easy to pick up and play. However, this was also a great year for game plays in general. With a total of 655 plays of 154 distinct games (48 of which were expansions - shown in italics below), there was still a lot of variety. 49 of the games I played this year were new to me (shown in bold below), which is about 32% of the games played this year.

I feel that 2014 had some ups and downs for board gaming for me, with a few times where I got tired of the hobby and yet a few good months of gaming as well. It's always good to refocus on the "goal" of why I play board games, which is to have a fun with my family and friends. I'm glad to say that the past year was filled with lots of good memories of playing games with my wife and kids, extended family, and friends from work and church. I'm looking forward to spending more time in 2015 getting to know a number of the games in my collection better, thanks to the the 10x10 challenge, and hope to create more great memories along the way.

Through the Ages: 128

Star Realms: 33
At the Gates of Loyang: 21
Lords of Waterdeep: 21
Onirim: 20
Race for the Galaxy: 17
Dig Down Dwarf: 15
Agricola: 14
The Castles of Burgundy: 13
Seasons: 13

Thanks to Board Game Arena, my husband and I completed over 100 games of Through the Ages! We always have a turn-based going, and we *love* to play (my husband especially).

I got an iPad this year and have started playing more iOS versions of some of my favorite games. Star Realms is a quick play and really easy/fun on the iPad.

At the Gates of Loyang was probably my favorite game of the year. I love the theme, the brightly colored pieces and cards, and the mechanic. Funny story: I lost the first 14 plays of this game to my husband and wrote a dirge about it that I now sing every time we get this game to the table.

Lords of Waterdeep was another game I played mostly on my iPad.

Onirim is a great filler solitaire game that doesn't get old. I always enjoy the beautifully disturbing theme.

Race for the Galaxy is another game I play often on Board Game Arena, but usually with other gamers (not husband). We play it every now and then at the table, but BGA makes this one quick and easy.

Dig Down Dwarf was a Kickstarter game this year that I downloaded the PnP for. Really fun filler game! The official version arrived in the mail last week, looks great.

Agricola is one of my husband favorite games. This year, we experimented with different types of card drafting. I still rarely win at this one. Boo.

Castles of Burgundy is one of those games I want to play when I don't want to think a lot, but I still want a full game experience. Not that it's a light game, but it's simple enough.

Seasons is another game I played quite a bit on Board Game Arena because my husband really does not like the theme.

This year was down so many plays from 2013. A combination of being on the other side of the city from many friends, other friends moving away, and travelling for three months stopped a lot of gaming. Even going to Essen didn't make much of a blip - didn't get to play the games I got as much as I wanted to.

My 10x10 challenge was a miserable mess, even considering how ambitious I was being picking 10 long games - finished on 26%. Even swapping them out for my most played games only got me to 82%. Better luck next year.

2013: 537 plays over 80 games - highest The Resistance (45 plays)
2014: 199 plays over 62 games - highest Dominion (16 plays)

Here are the games I played thrice or more (only counting f2f):

16 Dominion
15 Coup
12 Cosmic Encounter
10 No Thanks!
9 Bohnanza
7 Hanabi
7 Machi Koro
7 Sushi Dice
6 The Agents
6 Camel Up
6 Sushi Go!
5 7 Wonders
5 Terra Mystica
5 Terror in Meeple City
4 Coloretto
4 Mr. Jack Pocket
4 Sentinels of the Multiverse
4 Walk the Plank!
3 Dungeon Petz
3 Galaxy Trucker
3 Letters from Whitechapel
3 String Railway
3 Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar



My first play of 2015 was "Oh My God! There's An Axe In My Head." The Game of International Diplomacy

I haven't been reporting my plays for a while now. This has been mostly because I've had a pretty dry gaming year, with "only" 191 plays around. Compared to 2013 and the ~450 plays then it's not much. Of course, there are real reasons for this decline. Raising a child, moving, living a few months with my parents-in-law and having a slight burnout from board gaming all helped.

The top of my list is dominated by my 10x10 challenge games. I did complete the challenge with a day to spare and I'm really proud of that. I think the challenge is a double-edged sword in a way. On the other hand it forces you to focus on certain games. I don't think I would have been able to play Keyflower 10 times without it, for example. On the other hand though, it forces you to focus on certain games which can feel limiting at times (I'm not supposed to be playing this - it's not on my 10x10 list). That said, I'm overall happy with the challenge and am participating again this year.

I'm hoping 2015 will be a more board game filled year. I have a pretty good feeling about it though, as now that we've moved I have a gaming room of my own. It will really help in hosting gaming nights.

I'm still a bit surprised my group got through the whole Pathfinder campaign. I don't think we're going to start Skull & Shackles as we focus on other games. I'm only going to include the games that got at least five plays or this list would be unmanageable.

Linko/Abluxxen has been a big hit everywhere I've introduced the game.

Hyperborea really caught on with my Tuesday night group as did Istanbul.

I made a real effort to log all my plays this year, but even if I didn't, it was very apparent that Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game was my top played game of the year.

Despite some grumblings about the time it takes to set up & put away, we find this game very accessible to pull out and play (sometimes more than once at one sitting). One of the biggest reasons I think is that the rules aren't too complex.

Looking over my top ten most played games for the year, I see it is heavily influenced by my (failed) 10x10 challenge and the (more successful, though heavily solo'd) Advent Gaming challenge for the month of December:

1) Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game (10 plays)*

2) (tie) Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game – Villains (7 plays)*
(tie) Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy (7 plays)*
(tie) Star Wars: Trading Card Game (7 plays)

5) (tie) Heroes Wanted (6 plays)*
(tie) One Night Ultimate Werewolf (6 plays)
(tie) Rummikub (6 plays)
(tie) Yahtzee (6 plays)*

9) (tie) Dominion (5 plays)

10)(tie) 7 Wonders (4 plays)
(tie) Cabo (4 plays)
(tie) Jenga (4 plays)
(tie) The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense (4 plays)*

*=includes solo plays

Total: 291 plays
I only play f2f.
New to me I guess you can call me Cult of the New fanboy. surprise

2015: Would be cool to break the 300 barrier again...
2014: 291 plays of 178 different games with 142 new ones, 19xDominion, Essen with 77 plays, New game of the year: Patchistory
2013: 233 plays of 139 different games with 88 new ones, 23xDominion, Essen with 48 plays, NGotY: Venetia
2012: 234 plays of 119 different games with 61 new ones, 20xDominion, Essen, NGotY: Al Rashid
2011: 367 plays, 46xDominion, Essen, NGotY: Vanuatu
2010: 258 plays, 23xFairy Tale, Essen, NGotY: A year of too many great games, many were nominated, none chosen.
2009: 258 plays, 25xDominion, Essen, NGotY: Vasco da Gama (a wrong choice from today's perspective.)
2008: 461 plays, 66xLigretto, NGotY: Ys
2007: 669 plays, 87xLigretto
2006: 450 plays, 92xFairy Tale
2005: 391 plays, 37xCatan Card Game
2004: 300 plays, 41xMtG
2003: 94 plays, 27xSettlers of Catan

New game of the year: Patchistory is quite a clear choice. And it's actually a game from 2013. It's sad to say, but I'm with those who consider this to be a weaker game year and despite of playing a lot at Essen this would have been the year to skip since I started going in 2009. Past years have been able to offer a broader assortment of great games with staying power for me.

While I might not play as much as some of you, I did manage 31 plays of San Juan, largely thanks to it becoming my new favorite lunch game.

Here's what my gaming year looked like (166 total plays):

San Juan 31
King of Tokyo 14
Biblios 12
The Castles of Burgundy 11
7 Wonders 7
Capo Dei Capi 6

Dominion: Seaside 5
Wyatt Earp 5

In 2015, I'd really like to play more Twilight Struggle and I'm sure the recently acquired Terra Mystica will move much further up the list.
