What was the game you were playing most one year ago? Do you still play it? Has your enthusiasm for it waned?

Yep, you can see where this is going...

How about back in 2007? Are old games still worth playing?

So you are heading out to some sort of game party... Do you grab the new games? the old? Something from both? Tell us how you decide which games you decide to bring.

And once at the party, a mountain of options lie before you.

Do you advocate for the games you brought? Ask what others wish to play? Something else? Will you veto a game? Will you demur from a game and seek a different group? Gaming time is precious - how do you decide what to do?
