I always count on getting 100+ plays out of July as it's invariably when we take our holiday and while away a lot of time in pubs. But did I get to play anything truly unique among those 100+ plays? Did you?

The instructions are, as always:

Quote:
Look at your plays for the month of July, and then check out the games and see if you can find any games where you are currently the solitary logger of a play for July (or if the other loggers were actually in the same game session with you). Use your common sense in order to make the search faster. Obviously things like Dominion, Magic, etc. will have plenty of people playing them. Note: expansions that only you logged are fine, feel free to add them as well.

Then share any comments you might have. Are we missing something? How could this happen? What is your opinion of the game?

This is a chess-like game where you aim to manoeuvre yourself around the back of the opponent's pieces to have a look at them. A bit like a cheaty Stratego, I suppose.

My wife turned against it, but I think there's some value to be had.

A sort of PnP Catan with revolving parts to generate resources rather than the dice. The rules have some holes in them, and my pasted-onto-old-CDs version is falling apart, but it is quite intriguing.

This is an old one from my childhood. When I was a kid the cat peed on my copy and it was lost forever. I recently acquired a copy from ebay to play with my daughter for nostalgic purposes. All things considered, it's better than most of the older games out there still. Still a ton of just random dice rolling, but it's probably the best of my childhood games.

It is UNO where each player has their own deck and cards have special powers. It is not great but it is not terrible either.

Got a bunch of new-to-us kids game that I've been enjoying with my eldest.
Some pretty obscure ones so I get to add them here!

This one was enjoyable. I wasn't sure exactly how it was going to work from reading the rules but it's a pretty clever game that is simple enough for younger kids. The ghost makes things interesting and exiting for the kids.

Interesting game involving shooting discs with a little cord. My almost 4 year old had a hard time figuring out how to shoot with the cord and kept shooting it too hard or on the wrong angle. Maybe better for a slightly older child.

Very nice production, probably over produced though.
There isn't too too much there gamewise. Pretty simple for younger kids with very few decisions to be made. Looks great but I can see the kids losing interest soon.

My five plays of this 20-year-old game this month constitute more than half of its all-time plays logged on BGG. As a two-player game, I prefer Monochrome Chess to its progeny Martian Chess, although the latter is fun at higher player counts (with chess wedges to make suitable boards).

Monochrome Chess only "needs" two matching chess sets if you want to do the visual stunt of playing with all the pieces the same color. It's sufficient to scramble the pieces between the players in the board setup, in order to break the ownership-by-color of conventional chess.

Clearly, it was chess variant month for me. After having Knightmare Chess on my shelf for a few months, I finally broke it out for play. Knightmare Chess is a sort of superset of fairy chesses. Although the standard game calls for each player to draft a deck of cards, allowing customized modification of the chess rules during the course of play, we played our two games with a common draw deck (an option specified in the rules). Since neither of us were familiar with the cards yet, that seemed like the best way to ramp up.

An older, rather unremarkable game that would probably not be published in this form nowadays. There is some potential in it, but it doesn't shine.

Having played through the whole series, it's back to the beginning again. A few days later, on the anniversary of the battle, Ania Ziolkowska put up a fascinating blog post about the background to it all, which you can find here.

First up is Doro-Doko, a fast-playing, small-box take on something like Scotland Yard, except in this case, every player gets a turn at being the thief, and the detectives can also get in on the stolen goods action. (Apparently, they're all on the take.) The player who has the most Doro dollars at the end is the winner.

A family-weight game has been fun with our kids, friends and students.

Our second time around with this commodity speculation game, and I enjoyed it twice as much. Very easy to learn and play but challenging to anticipate where the values may end up.

Also very fun to occasionally blurt out "DIE, FUGGER!"

Thrifted this 3-4 months ago to introduce my boys to the characters before they could speak the language. It's roll-and-move with the added goal of possessing Dollie the Dove when you cross the finish line. Last week for our cycle tour, I bought the book to read to them at bedtime. It's much better than the game is.
