Some nice choices this year, Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small is quite fun, as is Mice and Mystics, and I most recently played Morels (continuing a long losing streak). I am going to have to go with Fleet.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

Last week, played a game of Last Will. Fun to have a game where you are trying to lose all your resources as quickly as possible versus build them up.

We almost never get to play this because it takes so long. But we scheduled a game of this for Friday & Saturday night this week (we will play halfway one night and finish up the next). I love this game, but it is SO long.

Well, at first glance it looks like 2011, but that's because of a lot of LoTR LCG expansions. I think the real answer would be 2013

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

Viticulture for sure.

1) Why are you looking forward to playing the game you selected as the GeekList Item?

I got it from my 2014 Secret Santa and it hasn't seen the table yet! cry I've played a few rounds solo and I've read through the rules but the stars have been crappily aligned. But I think I get to choose the game at my next game night so this will be the pick. (Unless of course 5 or more players show up, then I'll cry again, but pick some other fun game)

2) Where are you located?

Lakeville, MN
A suburb south of Minneapolis

3) Which year do you have the most published games from?

2009
I did not count my few RPGs or super tiny expansions and promos.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

There are a few great ones but for me the easy choice is Steam. I just love building those routes and trying to figure out how to get stuff from here to there.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

I'm going to Gen Con this year after a 2 year hiatus. I'm super excited. And I'm so happy that a buddy and I got into the same playtest session of Scythe. I can't wait to see how this game works. I hope the game play is as great as the art has been.

If I remove expansions and just go with base game,s it looks like it is 2010.

There are a lot of good ones from this year, but due to the current Kickstarter going on, I will say Defenders of the Realm is at the top of my mind.

1) Why are you looking forward to playing the game you selected as the GeekList Item?
I don't tend to get a chance to play with others much at the moment and Friday seems like it would be a good challenge for a solo game. It's actually somewhat of a tossup between that and Tiny Epic Galaxies (which I really want to try again). I have quite a few that I'd love to get to the table, but time and toddler make it a little difficult.

2) Where are you located?
DFW area in TX (and slowly watching waters recede - what a spring)

3) Go to your profile. Click on Stats. Click on Games Owned by Year.
Which year do you have the most published games from?

It's hard to say. 2011-2013 all are about the same, but it looks like I have mostly expansions in 2012 and 2013 so I'm going to go with 2011 as the most published games.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?
Of the ones I own - Takenoko gets the nod, but there are some great games in that list.

5) Anything else you would like to add?
I appreciate these contests, even if I didn't get a chance to partake last month. They're usually interesting and I think this one could bring out some interesting answers in the "favorite game of the year" answer.

I'd played this once more than two years ago and loved the spatial building elements and fun scoring aspect of trying to hit ten right on the nose. I hadn't played it since and recently received it in a math trade. I can't wait to break the rules out and read it again, especially since my wife is also interested.

1) Why are you looking forward to playing the game you selected as the GeekList Item?

With this game finally becoming readily available in North America, I'm looking forward to seeing if this game meets the unrealistic expectations that I have set up for it. It's a game that has Dice Rolling, Pick-up and Deliver, Route/Network Building and Variable Player Powers... it's like it was designed specifically for me. The fact that it seems to have a good amount of strategy, replayability and can be played in around an hour and a half makes it sound like the perfect game!

Looks like there's distribution/game-cancellation concerns now...

2) Where are you located?

St. Thomas Ontario

3) Which year do you have the most published games from?

Most games are from 2012.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

Favorite game in my collection from 2012 is Terra Mystica. It's a game that I don't get to the table as often as I'd like but it's one that constantly surprises me whenever I'm able to play it. The differences between the factions is huge and the game lends itself to be explored through multiple plays. Highly recommend it.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

Something witty.

Recently moved into a new house and got The Lost Legion expansion to play the first weekend we were there. We'd only played the First Reconnaissance scenario, now a month later we've played through a lot of the scenarios and like the sound of two armies clashing in this expansion. Personally I can't wait to have another character to pick as my favourites usually go first.

2012 & 2014 with three base games each, but I guess 2012 wins on the account of several expansions.

Coup is definitively my favourite from 2012. For 2014, both Dead of Winter and Alchemists are great games that I want to play more of.

2011, since 2012-2014 is mostly expansions.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

Wow, tough choice. I'm gonna toss up between King of Tokyo and Takenoko due to how easy they are get on the table and be taught in a short matter of time.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

I get irritated when people waltz into my room, and what I'm listening to is clearly in 4/4 time.

2014 and 2012 tie, not counting expansions. 2014 if expansions are counted.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

2012: Ahck almost all of my hotness is from this year. Keyflower I suppose though The Manhattan Project, Mice and Mystics, and Smash Up (with expansions) are all close.
2014: Castles of Mad King Ludwig

5) Anything else you would like to add?

I think I've finally sated my acquisition after a brutal first year in the hobby.

I bought this a few months ago, prior to moving. I haven't gotten it to the table yet and I'm curious to try it out as a 2-player game with my wife.

2) Where are you located?

Greater Milwaukee area.

2012, although to be fair, many of the items on the list are Carcassonne expansions. 2011 is a close second. Only one new game from 2014. Apparently I'm more of a "cult of yesteryear" kind of a guy!

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

For games, I guess it would be Love Letter since only a couple of games actually appear on the list. Of games + expansions, I'd have to say the Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients expansion is my favorite.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

Thanks for the giveaway. I promised myself I wouldn't miss this month.

Also, I've been reading the press releases about the US release of The Golden Ages. Looks to be a game right up my alley!

1) Why are you looking forward to playing the game you selected as the GeekList Item?

I just acquired Sentinels and played my first solo game last night after having it demoed for me a few weeks ago and I am in LOVE with all the moving parts. Now I feel I must collect all of the expansions (though I'm not crazy enough to think I need all of the promos too). Unity is just the character with the mechanics that most intrigue me.

2) Where are you located?

Charlotte, NC, USA

It's a tie between 2009, 2011 and 2013 with 3 each, 2013 has an expansion and a promo and 2009 has one game in it I'm not a huge fan of, so we'll go with 2011.

4) What is your favorite game from that year?

Well, funnily enough, Sentinels of the Multiverse came out that year, and since it's what I'm currently itching to play, I'm going to have to go with that one. A strong contender though, is that same year's release of Say Anything. But Say Anything really has to be played with the right crowd, whereas sentinels I can literally be my own teammate.

5) Anything else you would like to add?

Thank you SO much for doing these contests; I love this community!

Also, it's my birthday on 6/30, which will probably be the day of the drawing, so hook a brotha up, will ya? ;D

My 8yo spotted this in the window of a thrift store. The store is closed now but we will go there on Thursday.
Playing a game together with him is always a treat, especially with him finding a game that is new to him and him willing to try it!

Santpoort-Zuid, a nice little town near the sea in The Netherlands

I guess I should play some Crash Tackle Rugby Board Game and Rugby Mania again as I am already counting the days until the Rugby World Cup starts again
