That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

A collection of mini "session reports" that I try to post regularly. In the old days (pre-BGG), we used to share these kinds of things over email, in mailing lists. In some ways, I miss those days, and this is my personal experiment in bringing it back (a little). In that mailing list era, we wrote them LONG, because shared session reports were the way we all learned about games. They don't need to be long anymore, because anyone interested in a game already knows it, or can look up pics, rules, etc. easily enough. So let's see if I can write short session reports, and if they'll be of interest to anybody here.


As for star ratings, here's my thinking: this is a reflection of my personal enjoyment & excitement about the game, both for this specific outing, and my anticipation of future plays. It's not exactly the same thing as half my overall rating of the game (which is an attempt at something more objective). That is, I may rate a game an  8  in the database, but in a session report it may sometimes feel like , , or !

Comments are welcome & encouraged.

September & October, 2016

Wow, has it really been two months since I last wrote one of these geeklists? I guess so. Not that I haven't been doing any gaming during that time, but it's been both infrequent and unusual in opportunity. My regular group of friends and our weekly gaming group is thousands of miles away while I work overseas for a year. My priority is on sightseeing on the weekends, and on work during the week. Still, there have been chances here & there. Time to catch up.

November, 2016

Back at home in California, I posted these lists pretty much weekly. While living & working in France, though, I guess monthly is closer to how it's been. I'm still gaming, just not at the same pace as back home. There are too many other things filling my time. Work, first & foremost, but also weekend sightseeing. Frankly, a lot of podcasting, too. It's filling a void.

December, 2016

While I'm in Europe I've shifted these geeklists to monthly instead of weekly. Even though I've got a game group over here, my work keeps the gaming opportunities limited. Luckily, I was able to travel home for a week during the holidays, saw friends & family, and got in some great gaming.
