Dominion keeps going strong. Even though it has received some more competition lately at its end-of-game-night spot, it's still my most-played game for the year.
One of those competitors (Kingdom Builder) also passed 10. Other dimes are all short games that I play with my family.

Dominion 21
Chess 19
Star Realms 16
Fluxx 12
Kingdom Builder 12
Qwixx 10

Most-played longer game is Legends of Andor with 8, this is also a game I play with my children. Next in this category comes Concordia with 5.

Old classic making a strong comeback: Web of Power with 5 plays.

Total games for the year: 359
Total different games: 146

TOP NEW GAMES OF THE YEAR:
I still haven't played my new Christmas games (namely Codeword Cromwell and Greenland) and would expect them to make the list. As it is, my top five seven would probably be...
1. Tales of the Arabian Nights
2. CO2
3. Freedom: The Underground Railway
4. Wilderness
5. Six / Kill The Overlord / Chinatown

WORST GAMES OF THE YEAR:
Stinky gaming funk
1. Frankenstein's Bodies
2. Killer Bunnies
3. Way of the Dragon
4. Qwirkle
5. Relic Runners

BIGGEST GAMING MONTHS:
It's been a year that has had the three biggest gaming months I've ever had as well as some of the lowest I've had in the last few years. Funny that.
1. August (103)
2. December (73)
3. October (70)

MOST PITIFUL GAMING MONTHS:
1. March (13)
2. June (14)
3. April (16)

Another year past without a relapse of burn out. That's pleasing. Hopefully this will continue for 2015!

Didn't expect Rat Hot to be my most played (but my wife really loves it). Early on in the year I expected it to be a solo game, Onirim and Ghost Stories then I got Lord of the Rings LCG and that took over, but all fell before the rodents. But the overall play count was my best - 393 plays of 95 different games. 31 new games (including 13 expansions).
(last year I had 264, with 86 different games and 27 new-to-me)

Guildhall was probably the hit of the year - 1 play right at the end of 2013, 25 more in 2014, with adding Job Faire a real catalyst for more plays.

The top games (at least 4 plays - new in Bold):
Game Qty
Rat Hot 30
Guildhall (including Job Faire) 25
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game 25
Onirim 20
Ghost Stories 17
Prolix 12
Fluxx 11
Zooloretto: The Dice Game 11
Qwirkle 10
Tales & Games: The Three Little Pigs 10
Lords of Waterdeep 9
Hey, That's My Fish! 8
Tokaido 8
Coup 7

Parade 7
Takenoko 7
Draco Magi 6

Ingenious 6
Innovation 6
Merchants & Marauders 6
Zombie Dice (including ZD2) 6
The Builders: Middle Ages 5
Catch Phrase! 5
Machi Koro 5
7 Wonders 4
Pocket Civ 4
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age 4
Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game 4
Traders of Carthage 4
Wits & Wagers 4

Oh and I didn't get a summary of all my Yucata plays by game, but I completed 553 plays on the site this year - actually down a little from last year!

Crokinole was my Most Played game in 2014 again. It is my most played game ever (since logging plays on BGG).

It is the fourth time Crokinole has been my most played game of the year (all after I got my own board), and the third year in a row. I love the game, and it is probably the best investment I have had in a game.

It wasn't my worst year, but it was close. It was my worst year for playing unique games. Part of that was trying to play 3 different 10 x 10 Game Challenge Lists. I ended up not completing any of them. I still enjoyed doing the challenge though. If you look at my list though, my most played games were all on those challenge lists, so I did tailor my gaming towards the goal, and it was worth it.

This year, I am going to finish playing those 10 x 10 lists, because I want to. I am entering the play 100 games challenge, so that should be possible as well if I get into playing more. My goals in 2015 will be to basically complete all the various gaming challenges I have set up for myself the last few years, and not try anything crazy.

I only joined this website at the end of July this year. I played a bunch of games in January and then had three months off. Then I played a fair few games in around May for about a month and then had another fairly long break from gaming. 2014 was probably the least time I have focused on gaming which has really revitalised my passion for the hobby. I also found some real gems this year too! So of the plays I have logged here is the stats:

Ghost Stories 9
Hanabi 9
Coup 5
A Few Acres of Snow 3
Madeira 2
Splendor 2
Terra Mystica 2
Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) 2
Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery 1
A Distant Plain 1
Dixit: Journey 1
Exodus: Proxima Centauri 1
Firefly: The Game 1
Kemet 1
Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island 1
Star Wars: Imperial Assault 1
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization 1
Trajan 1


The games that are in bold have been the standouts and those in bold and italics the creme of the crop. The games underlined were the dogs I played this year. I doubt I will be playing those again (fingers crossed).

2468 plays of 379 distinct games

My last year of gaming with preschoolers, as my youngest son started school full-time this year. This means that I don't expect kids games like Where in the Wild to be top of my list in future years!! First adult game is Star Realms, which hit our house by storm, getting 89 plays in just a few months! Of course absolute top is Magic the Gathering, but that's absolute top every year so I tend to not count it!

All games listed that I played 5 or more times. Only FtF plays counted. All games I played primarily with adults in bold; those I played mostly with my children without. New games to me this year marked with a star.

Looking at my list below it's been a pretty good year for games. In particular I'm seeing a lot of variety, with many of our favorites at least hitting the table once. We managed to get a lot of newly purchased games to the table quickly, which was gratifying.

At the top of my list is the game I predicted months ago would be there. Qwixx is so fast to play, so easy to teach, and so much fun. I expect it will be near the top of my list for years to come.

Here were my face-to-face games for the year:

444 games (100 unique ones) played in 2014, which is near my average of 432 games per year. I consider an average of one game per day to be great, so this is good. Pickomino is still the go to game when starting a game night (or ending one...). King of Tokyo and Catan Card Game were the hits of the year, although 7 Wonders had a good run in the last quarter.

Interestingly (for me at least) is that this year I both played over 25% of my games in one year and have played over 53% of my collection since I started logging my plays (I've played quite a few of my unplayed/unlogged games though, just not from 2009 or later).

Includes f2f, offline solo, and online games vs real people. I don't count digital games against the computer. I sometimes think I shouldn't count online games vs real people, but then some games would disappear completely, and that kind of game does represent a large part of my game hours. It's a gray area getting grayer.

Best new game: San Juan There are other games we played more and possibly liked as much, but I think San Juan has the greatest chance of being one we'll always play. Such a great game, doesn't overstay it's welcome, interesting decisions to make.

Surprise of the year: Legends of Andor I avoided this one for quite a while, as it seemed almost like a parody of a fantasy-themed game. But its puzzly nature is quite clever, it's non-hack-and-slash manner makes it stand out, and being able to play co-op with my son makes it a winner! Hat tip to Rahdo, as his enthusiasm for this game finally got through to me.

Disappointment of the year: Robinson Crusoe Easy choice here, sad to say, and previously posted about. The game is clever and good in many ways, but it really fizzled in my family, and was just not enjoyable to us.

Personal gaming trends:
The oldest son increasingly doesn't want to play anything not on a computer.
The wife increasingly does not want to learn new games.
A robust board gaming culture has developed at work. 7 wonders, Carcassonne, Pandemic, Sushi Go, RoboRally, and most of all One Night Ultimate Werewolf are seeing constant action. Also getting to try more games that I don't own.
Digital versions of board games on phone/tablet are taking up increasing amount of my time, displacing almost all my reading.

Some words about most played ones

Black Stories - 30 plays

Not so much a game, more an activity, but very popular one in our gaming group. There's always some time for murder mystery riddle - in smaller or larger groups. Not between my favorite games, but without any doubt - the most played one in 2014.

Love Letter - 14 plays

Time for the filler. It seems everyone likes it. I personally am not so astonished, but approve the design and am ready to play it time after time. And somehow it is second most played game in 2014.

Hanabi - 13 plays

No idea, how this happened. I don't remember myself playing Hanabi a lot. Maybe this one time on a plane. And then this another. And with a friend, while waiting for someone to show up. But stats don't lie, so 3rd place for Hanabi.

Suburbia - 12 plays
 

Finally something I truly enjoy. One of the best games out there. And the best thing is I am not tired of the game at all. So many more plays to come.

Libertalia - 11 plays

This pirate card game has in some way replaced Citadels for me. No, I still love all the tension in Citadels, but somehow Libertalia offers shorter role selection with the same vibe.

A big year for me, with lots of plays. Lots of new games (but not close to the about 120 new to me games in 2013). Fun year though, with some games that will become ones that will get many plays in our house and family for years to come. And some stinkers that should probably just leave my collection...
