Well I don't expect to be doing any more gaming before Tuesday, certainly none that would change the numbers on this list, so here's my 5 & 10 list for 2007.

I played 218 games, 92 different games. The numbers were down from 274 and 142 in 2006. 3 games (B-17, Age of Steam, Tichu) were on both the 2006 and 2007 5 & 10 lists.

I did accomplish my goal of playing every non-expansion Euro in my collection, playing the final game just last night.

No quarters this year, so straight to the dimes

20 plays

All the plays were solitaire. I really like the mechanics in this game, and the theme is great. I can see it being multi-player solitaire for the most part, and haven't tried to get it to the table at game night because of it. I expect to get this at least to nickel status in 2008, as I try to complete all the solitaire scenarios.

17 plays

Up from 13 plays last year. I started a campaign late in 2006, and the 17 plays represent the rest of the campaign. After having completed the campaign I felt I had gotten my fill of the system and traded it off. Good game, but a bit repetitive.

All but one play were while my parents visited in the spring. They loved the game, so much so that we gave my Mom the copy that was new when they arrived as her Mother's Day gift. We later went out and replaced it as we enjoy the game quite a bit as well.

Now onto the nickels

The second best "new to me" game of the year. I love the large map and the mental process of figuring out how to affect the passenger's move.

The best "new to me" game of the year. I find this game to be a ton of fun, even for its length. It would probably hit the table more if we had a few more people who liked it in the group, as it stands there are only 2-3 besides myself that are really interested in playing on any regular basis.

Always a good filler for us. I still need to get a 4-player version of Disney's Pirates Dice to go with the 2-player version I was given as a gift from my in-laws.

Same number of plays as last year. The favorite game (by ranking) of the AZ Boardgamers. I have a love/hate relationship with this game. I enjoy it, but I feel like the scoring doesn't seem to match up with the randomness at times. Its a bit of a blind spot for me, I don't think the game is as bad as I make it out to be at times, and I do enjoy playing it.

The third best "new to me" game of the year. I'm a big fan of the Age Of Empire computer games and Colonization, which the designer said influenced the game, and the feel of those games really comes out. This game got a lot of play right after release, so much so that I put it away to avoid burnout, but I think its time to break it out again.

This is down from 8 plays last year. I think we hit burnout early in the year and I took a long break from what is my favorite game. A number of plays recently though. 2007 also marks my first win over experienced players, and in Tatsu's last game with the group before he moved to Omaha.

My new "collectable" game obsession. There would probably be more plays if the setup time was shorter. I've actually done a good job so far, trading for everything released through the first 2 specialist packs. I need to pick up Scottish Wars to increase my Dwarven army.

This was a real "flash in the pan" for me. I really liked the concept and part of the system, but the amount of randomness finally got to be too much of a frustration for me. I don't mind playing by VASSAL, where I'm only burning 5 minutes or so at a time, but its too much randomness for me to sacrifice 2-3 hours of a game night to play.
