I'm not sure where June went, but we still managed to get in some playing along the way. July should be equally nuts for us, and I'm probably going to be in solitaire mode for part of the month.

That said, I think we picked up a few great games this month and what we did play was really fun anyway!

Games here have at least 2 plays.

# of Different Titles Played: 12

I picked this up as May was finishing knowing it would get played pretty quickly. This will likely be one of my summer obsessions. Interesting watercolor art and a bit different than Onirim--more space needed to play, but interesting and fun when all is said and done.

Just arrived in the mail and with such a short playing time and solitaire option I could not resist. Love this game. I can see that it does not have much depth, but for what it is, it is a pleasant 20-minute game that works well solo and should be great with 2, though this will be the next 10x10 game for me this year.

It was time to have a few fast plays of this favorite. It must be summer.

We tried both board sides. Jury is still out on this one. It seems to start so simply and then by round 3 it gets pretty tough. Still it is an interesting strategy game and I tried a couple solo games as well--this plays fairly nicely that way!

We just threw the tiles in a cloth bag which made it easier and laid out the bonus tiles for reference. This helped bring the table room down a bit.
