Based on my brother's idea, and then my first attempt at this, I'm going to try playing these games a second time, if at all possible, by the end of 2017 (giving myself an extra few months more than a year.) I spend too much time playing the same old games, or playing new games, but a number of those new games don't get a second play. In fact they often go so long that everyone forgets the rules and it's like a first play all over again. So here we go...

Special note: I'm not including games on my trade list, because if they ended up there I didn't like them enough to worry about playing twice. Also, if I decide in this process that I have no desire to go back to a game, then I will drop it off this list and move it to my trade list. Finally, no expansions included.

I like the game. I think it's funny and fun to play. The big problem I have with it is just the fact that most of the houses I play games in don't have enough room around the table for people to run. I need to give this to our youth pastor, because I think the teens will have a blast with it.

A very enjoyable adaptation of Crappy Birthday. It worked well this time as a team-building game with my employees. We've seen most of the cards, but I still think it's worth keeping and playing occasionally when I can forget what's on all the cards or with different groups.

Got this one back to the table and managed to mess up a rule again. It went pretty well otherwise, and I think I'll be able to convince the family to try again. We're all still struggling with the strategies, and figuring out how to play most effectively. My wife said something like "I need to play that again..." which is a great sign.

The first time we tried this game it was met with some mild interest, but not a lot of laughs. This time around it worked great. I think we had more fun playing 3 rounds of this game than all the other games that night combined. So this game will definitely stay in the collection, and will probably be requested again soon.
