I see the 10x10 mentioned a lot around here and on Reddit but I don't think I can commit to something as large as that. So I am saying my Fiancee and I will play 15 new games I own at least one time before I can buy any new games. Exceptions will be anything put out by Plaid Hat and Stonemaier Games and any Kickstarters already backed.

EDIT: And Xcom cause well Xcom


All games mentioned here will be played two player and only one play unless otherwise stated.

This is the first game we broke out this year for our challenge. This game turned out to be a lot of fun. The first few turns were a little slow but once you got the hang of it and started to learn how to mess up the other players plan while keeping on your own made it a lot of fun end game. My complaints are I feel like as a two player game it is too short. We didn't even fill half of the board. I think possibly a third (Night) phase would make the two player game feel deeper. That being said I also felt it was a little easy to get to the ghost pepper it could be done in one phase if you play right. We both really enjoyed the game though and will definitely pull it out again later.

4 Ghost Peppers out of 5

After a crushing defeat in Dead of Winter some work buddies and myself decided we had enough time to try out a light filler game. I grabbed Tsuro I bought it during the black Friday board games sale on Amazon and have yet to play it.

The game wasn't still sealed in shrink but the tiles were still in their vacuum sealed bags. They were all stuck together which shows how long its been on the shelf.

The rules were simple and the first game ended pretty quick. The second game I was only able to put down two tiles before I was crushed by a Kaiju. However my buddies lasted for quite some time and almost used all of the tiles. However with four tiles left my one friend was crushed. The black ship was victorious.

This is a great game and is sure to see the table again soon.


EDIT:

Second play. I played this game with some of my lets say smarter friends and we actually all lost in the same turn. I would say 85% of the board was full of tiles and me and my one friend were on the same tile and he placed a tile that by no other choice drove me off of the board and put him on an impossible path that led him off the board the next turn. My other friend in the same round was crushed by a monster leaving my other friend as the victor without him having to do much. It was a lot of fun and still probably my favorite game of this year.

My god this game is a lot of fun. Also super hard. We were still very iffy on some of the rules that the tutorial really didn't cover or briefly touched on. We won but I will say its a win with an Asterisk as we are not very sure if it was a fully legit victory. This game will definitely see the table again.

This is a fun game in a small package. Me and a work friend played this on our lunch the other day and I forgot to add it until now. Even at the two player level there was some fun take that moments like when I made his stack of six wood go from top value to lowest value. For a lunch time game this is great. Looking forward to getting it out there with more players.

This game has a way to take people who never role play or only do it in certain situations and turn them into the biggest role players ever. This is my go to game to break the ice at the start of a game night or at a family event because it will loosen everyone up and allow them to enjoy their selves better later.

In terms of the game though I suck at it. I always get caught lying and never want to waste a turn being legit. O well maybe I will get better in time.

We played this the other night and it slipped my mind. We played the first few turns and realized we were playing wrong. We were forgetting to roll new dice after every turn and were wondering why it was so easy. Well we started playing right and still lost. Had some pretty bad dice rolls I am talking like 3/5 dice were the plague symbol. We all liked it a lot and my one buddy who started the hobby with me on Pandemic thought it was better than the original. I don't think I agree with that but I can for sure see it.

I am going to be honest here. I think Summoner Wars has lost some of its pizzazz with me. I was all about it a year or so ago but its sat on the shelf until this came in the mail the other day. My brother was home from school for the weekend and we broke this out and we played one game and I beat him but it was super quick and was lacking the same excitement it once had. I will play it again this week with a buddy from work maybe this was a fluke game or something.
