This filler came out on top again - still having fun with this one. A lot of family & children's games this month. Although we didn't even play that much on Christmas this year - there was a Wii present.... A total of 48 is quite high for 2007; it is in fact the highest for the year.

November: Hive 6 of 39 games
October: Ticket to Ride: Switzerland 5 of 33 games

New Game of the Month: Hmm. Nevermind.

New Game(s) in the Collection: a small poker set and a casino game. Yeah, not much this month. I think I'll have to go and buy some this week...

Looking Back: Of course in 2006 we were in the middle of our move to this house. Still got in 27 games - mostly Ticket to Ride, but a few bigger games as well: Wallenstein, Antike. In 2005 I had one of my best months ever, if you look at the numbers: 50 games played - 14 of those were TtR, which I got on Dec. 26.

Nothing got a lot of plays, and no Zendo this month.

The relatively small number of plays this month is in large part due to several long, learning games, including 1960: The Making of the President (new to both players), Arkham Horror (four players with a total of two previous plays among them), and Prophecy (three players, zero previous plays). Those three games alone totaled about 12 hours of gaming time.

We never did actually finish the Prophecy game. The other two players had to leave for different reasons, so I guess I won by default.

This month's games:

Ricochet Robots 2
Sharp Shooters 2
TransAmerica 2
Wits & Wagers 2
1960: The Making of the President 1
Acquire 1
Alhambra 1
Arkham Horror 1
Category 5 1
Cloud 9 1
Fairy Tale 1
Game of Life: Twists & Turns Edition 1

Thanks to Agricola being designed for solitaire play as well as standard multiplayer play, it wins the coveted title of "most-played game of December 2007" for me... December is usually a time when I am playing fewer games, due to all of the Advent and Christmas activities at the parish, work and home. On the plus side, I have found that my sister-in-law's family are very receptive to gaming, so I got in a lot of gaming during the visit to my mother-in-law's home for Christmas.

Agricola x4 (3 solitaire)
Blokus x3
Formula Dé x3 (one on the Monaco track (1), two on Bahrain (35))
Galaxy Trucker x3
Qwirkle x3
Diamant x2
Loopin' Louie x2
Felix: The Cat in the Sack x1
Formula Dé Mini x1
HeroScape Master Set: Swarm of the Marro x1
Lost Cities x1
Niagara x1
No Thanks! x1
Ticket to Ride: Switzerland x1

New to me this month
Ticket to Ride: Switzerland is technically new to me - I have played the computer form probably thirty times, but this was the first time I had played the board game release.

This is a great little game that saw many plays around Halloween. It was quick enough to serve as an opener for many other games and had repeat plays week after week when someone would talk about the great game we played last week. Invariably the response was, "well, if it's such a great game and is a quick play then let's play it before we play xxx."

Best New Play of December: Mall Madness
Yes, that's right. Mall Madness. This game is pretty rad. The components are great and the role-playing aspect is fantastic. This one will be seeing a lot more table time.

Worst New Play of December: Malarky
This is due to the situation that Malarky was played in. We were at a great Christmas party and we had some real duds playing the game with us. The game is streamlined version of Balderdash and looks to be really interesting, but not when we played it.

Best Overall Play of December: Tide of Iron
I got beat by a twelve year old. We were playing one of the demo scenarios and that kid tore me apart. It was a lot of fun trying to defend the hill with the ragged, war-torn troops that survived.

Again a good month for me with 17 games played. Attika and Pickomino tied for most played with 4 plays. Subbuteo, Targui and Poker were played twice, Settlers of Catan, TransAmerica and StreetSoccer were played once. It was fun to teach Targui to my sons. This game wasn't played for a long time.

I kept on getting deeper and deeper into this game this month. I kind of forgot about the end of the month, as I wanted to hit 13k before the end of my 2nd month of play, but I've spent the past few days either playing Guitar Hero or watching Hikaru no Go (that counts as almost playing!). Anyway, the only online game I play is Go, so if you'd like to see just my F2F games, just don't look at the first entry!

Bolded: New Games
None

I decided to go back and add content to these great lists from when I first started on BGG (Nov '07) since I missed them right after I joined.

I taught my son UNO to get a break from Stratego which he didn't want to stop playing. UNO became his new favorite, and he wants to play it all the time. This was my first full month on BGG as I got back into gaming, and I played many old games from my closet.
