We plan to play these games 10 times or more through 2018. We focused on campaign style games this year. Well Michael did and I went along with it. He's been thinking a lot about these kind of games lately. We also threw on a few of my favorite games.

We started playing this with a couple of friends in December 2017. We made it through 4 games so far and I really love this game. Part of it is the evolving story and new twists and turns the game takes and part of it is the regular attempt to meet up with friends and try to save the world.

Michael and I played the intro game just the two of us. We're fans of Stonemaier Games and legacy games so how could we not like this? After one play I think Michael was disappointed but we're going to keep playing. I'm pretty sure once we have a few games under our belt things will go much better.

Even though we both ran demos for this game at GenCon we have not actually played it yet. We plan on using the app with this game to string together several plays for a full race.

Michael has been talking about this game for a long time. Neither of us are fans of the Cthulhu theme but we do love Fantasy Flight card games like Netrunner. The idea of a cool card game co-op is what convinced me to give it a try. We've played a couple times already and have had a great time once we understood the rules.

This is another game Michael has been talking about for a long time and I've had no interest in. I told him he could buy it thinking at the very least he'd probably enjoy it solo, but after watching the SU&SD review I have to say I'm really interested in trying this myself now.

It's Amazing! This is the one game that is at the top of both of out favorites list. We've played it loads of times and Michael knows every card in the game. Despite that we both still love playing this game and would be up for it any time.

We've had a,copy of this game for a while with the intention of finding some friends to play it with. We have another couple who are a lot of fun to play with and they're down to play with us. It might have to wait until the summer but we're going to play this year!

We are Knights of the Stronghold; this is the third Stronghold game on the list. We really like the idea of the fable games! We've played this one a few times but always end up starting it over with new people. We want to get to the end of the deck!

We did a campaign of this game a couple years ago and have the base set with a few expansions. I had painted our full set at one point but we sold it, so now I need to paint it again. Michael was really excited to hear there is an overlord app coming out so we've added this one with the intent to play it just the two of us.

We love two player card games. We love beautiful art. We've had this one a while and played it several times. I think we have all the current decks. I really appreciate the pre-built decks. That is the one thing I dislike about Netrunner because it always takes me so long to build a deck. I think Michael is determined to find a faction that can defeat the blood puppets!

I don't know what it is about this game but it pushes all my buttons. I even made little frying pans and walking sticks for this game! I backed the recent expansion and I'm really looking forward to playing this game a lot this year.
