1st Most Played Game in 2013

For the second year in a row, Guildhall takes the top spot. The addition of the additional Job Faire cards and the enjoyment of the "Mega" variant using all 12 characters fueled additional plays to make this our first game to reach 100+ plays. This is an underrated game and it is disappointing to hear that it is not going to be reprinted.

My wife stumbled upon this at a garage sale and bought it on a whim. It turned out to be a nice card game calling for some card drafting, hand management, and set collecting while offering a bit of push your luck.

7 Wonders is a great game worthy of the countless awards it has won. We are late comers to this party but as the saying goes: Better late than never. It's fairly easy to teach, learn and play. Once everyone gets a hang of it you can play up to 7 people taking simultaneous turns that makes for a quick game with a large group. I've added it to our 10x10in2015 Challenge list for the family to continue playing it and incorporating the Leaders expansion in the New Year. If all goes well, there could be additional expansions added to the mix.

I almost jumped on the Kickstarter campaign for this one, but passed after failing to capture my wife's interest try the print-n-play version I made to see if we'd like it. After it was produced I still thought about giving it a try and made it one of our first purchases at Gen Con. You have to grasp the concept of research development and learn how to effectively use it or this game will feel flat. Once you have that however this can be an engaging race-like experience with lots of research options for replayability.

Bruges has become my favorite Feld game over this past year. The more I explore the various types of card actions and look for the right opportunities to lever them the more excited I get about this game. It rewards additional plays and requires you to be very light on your feet to play an effective tactical game. Very much looking forward to incorporating the expansion. This will return to the 10x10 Challenge in my 2015 list.

We continue to frequent this title over coffee in the mornings over the course of the year. It is my wife's favorite Feld if not one of her favorite overall games. It too is going on our 2015 10x10 list and we look forward to playing the Spiel Edition expansion boards in the new year.

I placed this on my 2014 10x10 Challenge list with intentions of it becoming our first game to reach 100 plays. Guildhall stole that honor but we did reach the 100 game milestone and I still feel there is so much play left in this system for us. I'm just starting to grasp the Seaside expansion and feel Intrigue has hardly been opened.

We rode the excitement of discovering this game late last year in the early part of 2014 before it lost momentum yielding instead to the 10x10 Challenge selections and new titles we acquired during the year. I'm still interested in printing off the variant online and giving it a few goes.

King of Tokyo continues to be a regular game in our household either for family time or when friends come over and we aren't looking for a heavier strategy game. The expansion doesn't get much play, in favor of the simplicity of just the base game.

I waited so long to get this game and then waited even longer while I painted my gears. What a fantastic worker placement, action selection euro game. I love it. It is my favorite in the worker placement space and everyone in our group we've introduced it too enjoys it as well. I've had some great Game Night experiences playing this one. My wife got me the expansion for Christmas so more to explore in 2015.

Hanabi is slowly gaining some momentum within my family. I got to play a few games with my parents and dragged my reluctant wife into a few plays. I've only broken 20 a couple of times and would like that elusive 25 perfect game!

Something about light fillers has been difficult for me to get to the table. I'm not a big fan of micro games but this one works for me. In a late year surge I got my girls to join me for a mess of plays to finish the 10x10 Challenge and I think they like it enough to play again. I'm considering the possibility of getting the upcoming Batman themed version this coming summer... more manly sounding and looking when trying to solicit a game with the guys.

I love, love this system. I'd love to play it more but I've got two people who are interested opponents. One even lives across the street! However it is a bit fiddly to setup in the spur of the moment so we have to plan a time to make it happen. Typically what happened this year was we jumped online and played a scenario or two at a time and taunted each other via text or messaging. I want to get back to playing through the Eastern Front scenarios.

Abyss is a hand management, set collection game with beautiful artwork and an enjoyable game experience. It's more than attractive art. It is a wonderful game light enough to teach and grasp fairly quickly so you can get to the game itself. Our group has liked it thus far and it managed to see 10 trips to the table without it being in the 10x10 challenge in 2014, but it is going into the Challenge in 2015 to ensure we keep playing it.

I summed it up in my 2014 10x10 Challenge wrap up of this one that I enjoy the game but more so when playing with other players. Due to the lack of interest I was left to play this out as primarily a solo experience which is not something I want to do long-term. So if it doesn't garner any interest soon, I may trade it for something that will get more play time. Two other people in our Game Group own it and we can play it when they decide to bring it.

I hate loving a game that is so hard to find someone conveniently available to play. Much like Sentinels I was forced to play most of my 10x10 Challenge plays on my wife's iPad. It was neat playing randomly drawn opponents but I'm not interested in playing this as a video game or having to pay again for factions I have ready to play face to face. I want the face to face experience.

A great euro that I bought on written reviews despite not grasping what the game was about last year. I managed another 9 plays this year because it was on my 10x10 list, but my primary opponent was my wife who has only one once and really does not like the game. I need to find a third player for us or more players so that I can get this to the table more. It shines as a 3p game. I've never tried it with more than that.

Village was our worker placement purchase last year that we added to my 10x10 list this year. It plays fine with the two of us and despite a fairly evenly matched 2p experience for us we both prefer it with more. Especially when my oldest daughter joins us. I'd really like to get the Village Inn expansion to add some additional variety to the game to see if that would add to its staying power at our table.

This game pits opponents against one another using a blending of two different factions producing a wide variety of unique combinations. Each faction offers a style of play and set of abiltiies which are played during your turn with the objective of being the first player to 15 points.

Fairly easy to teach and play "trading in the Mediterranean" euro game with layers of depth that will strategically reward multiple plays. It showcases a card drafting mechanism where each player starts with the same set of cards but can purchase additional ones during the game for more actions and end game scoring opportunities.

Saint Petersburg feels like a classic and a one that continues to see a fair number of plays for another year. Can it repeat its presence again next year?

I finally imported a copy of Notre Dame after hearing so much about it and being such a big Feld fan. The first play was a bit underwhelming. However, revisiting it for a few more plays after some time off turned out to be a totally different experience and it finally clicked. I introduced it to a few folks after trick-or-treat and it went over well. Hope to see it back to the table in 2015.

A very colorful game with nice chuncky dice. I acquired a couple of copies in the Gen Con Math Trade along with both expansions. I've included it on my 10x10in2015 Challenge list as the alternative.

We managed a few more plays, mainly exploring the Switzerland map in 2p games. The game has cooled off for my wife, my primary gaming partner. I still enjoy it and we are so close to 100 plays across the maps that I expect mentioning that will get it back to the table. My favorite format is Team Asia where you play with pairs with shared and private cards.

This design continues to impress me the more I play it. However, my wife is also getting a better grasp as well making this a very competitive game between the two of us. I enjoy a single game, 13-12, advantage in our 25 2p plays. A heavier, and impressive design by Mr. Feld.
