This is just a list for me to keep track of what is new to me during 2015 and keep track of purchases and how much spent. I didn't realize I have obtained this many games so far this year. My wife and I will do a game of the year based of of this list just for fun.

I think for game of the year end of October will be the cut off since Christmas there are usually new games and each of our birthdays are in the earlier portion of the year. SO anything acquired after October 31 will qualify for next years family GOY. This only affects Thebes and anything received for Christmas. Now to develop a voting system that is fair for 2 people to vote. I am thinking list top 5 and have different points for each level.

1- 5
2- 4
3- 3
4- 2
5- 1

Not a bad little game has a lot in the little box. Very quick four buildings seems a little short to me. My wife doesn't really care for it because of the variable market makes it harder to make a plan for her.

Bought as a gift for the wife. First game purchased as gift for her. Possibly the biggest hit of the year so far for everyone who we have shared it with. I haven't played Seven Wonders but my friends have and they bought this instead of Seven Wonders.

Good game really enjoy it and my wife enjoyed it from play one which usually doesn't happen. Dominion and Castles of Burgundy my wife hated intially but now enjoy, this skipped that phase and is approaching Dominion for her as a favorite.

Not as fun as Resistance, but has some fun deduction elements and doesn't take long to play. A fun game, but my wife is not huge into it b/c she doesn't have a poker face and has only won like 1 in 20 games.

Got a good deal online with in-store pickup. I knew that my wife liked it and we'd been waiting for a decent price for 6 or so months and finally pulled the trigger.

Not a bad little game. I think this game is great for how small it is. Great deduction game trying to figure out who is who to get your letter through.

Wife hated this game intially and still about 10 plays in doesn't care for it, but not quite on the chopping block yet. It may survive yet we'll see. I enjoy it.

Update: It has survived and sees regular play b/c it is so easy to teach and plays quickly. 3rd most played game this year behind Hollywood and Dominion. I like Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Fresco and Hollywood more, but this is good game that haas a lot going for it with simplicity and time commitment. My oldest sister visited for the weekend and made a special request for it.

May- Birthday

Simple little set collection game. Really small and compact... and that's about it. Doesn't do it for me.

May- Birthday gift from wife.

It's about what I expected, decent little game I see why there are so many expansions to add variety and not have to use the same cards over and over again, though that's a nice challenge it reduces the replayability. It was a game my wife wanted and bought it for me for my birthday not bad for our non-gamer friends and casual groups, though definitely not my cup of tea.

May- Awesome game, had high hopes and expectations and it lived up to the bill. I've had 10 plays and enjoying it a lot. May be game of the year for me this year, that or the surprising Hollywood.

Looks fun and easy to teach, with some fun interaction and mechanics.

Update: Easy game, not as fun as I hoped. Well made, but something seems missing or lacking that limits replayability for me. Jury is still out I've played it only a hand full of times.

Playtested it, ok game. Doesn't replace anything for me in my opinion. I think I would rather play Citadels when ever something like this is itching to be played.

First Kickstarter. $26

Very disappointing. Played it once not bad, but didn't have me hooked. Wish I didn't back it, thin cards, not well printed, almost one year late. I want to get it sleeved before I play it again, I am worried about damaging the cards they are so dark on the edges with ink already coming off and the already mentioned thin cardstock problem. Doesn't fit any of the sleeves I already own though so I'd have to buy new sleeves which is not a priority.

September Jet.com- $18

Got this with the Gilt.com promo $15 for $30 credit then reduced that cost from $15 to 10.50. Then bought it on jet for $7.73 I believe. It is on the way. This game has been on the radar, just barely for awhile (Wishlist Level 4), finally pulled the trigger b/c of the deal and I really think my wife will like it. Of all the mainstream games Clue is one of the best so this game should be a fun one.

October Target- $19

Got this as a Target buy 2 get 1 free. The other 2 games were used as gifts.

It is an OK game we haven't played it a lot, but we were not entrapped by it like we have other games this year. Verdict is still out.

November White Dragon Games- $46 total

My grail find, been waiting and looking since 2013 for it to be reprinted and for cost to drop. Was reprinted, but never distributed I guess. On it's way now.

Very much was looking forward to it. Pretty major disappointment. Of the 3 modules included pretty much the moats is the only interesting one. The secret passages are interesting, but not amazing and the swan tokens don't add much in the game for me only complexity in setup. So we only play with moats. Could of passed on not missed a thing.
