Happy Birthday to me! Today is my birthday and I gave myself the gift of games, well plays really. 110 plays last month. The most plays since I started keeping track and almost double the normal amount I play in a month. This involved 37 different games along with 9 expansions. 10 games or expansions I had never played before. 42 of the plays were face to face and 68 online, I only record online games against all human opponents. It was a very good month. How did I do it? Let me tell you…

17 plays, all on BSW.

I love this game and very much enjoy playing it on BSW. I don?t win it very much and always seem to come a few points short. Need to play it more and learn my mistake.

15 plays, 14 on daysofwonder.com and 1 with my family. 2 with the 1910 expansion.

All four player games which is my preferred configurations. I have over played this game and I am trying to cut back but daysofwonder.com makes it far to easy to get a game in. I would guess there were another 15 plays that I didn?t record because one or more of the players dropped before the game ended.

11 plays, 8 on BSW and 3 playing hot seat on the computer addition with my son. Does hot seat games count as online or face to face?

My oldest son Daniel has discovered this game and we have played a few games. Also a great BSW game, all 2 player I think which seems to be all you can get in on BSW.

11 plays, 9 on BSW and 2 with my friday night game group.

Even when I am tired and can?t handle a more complex game I always enjoy a game of Tichu.

5 plays, 3 on BSW and 2 face to face.

This is one of my recent favorite games and would love to get more plays in. I would also like to try the expansion but it seems way over priced. All these plays were 3 players which is the way I like it best, I really don't like 4 player.

4 plays, all online at Wargameroom.com.

I think 2 league games and 2 non-league games. I have more recorded games of TS than any other game and I always love playing this game. I have not been able to play this as much as I use to or would like because it takes a little longer to play than I have time for when I get home from work and there aren't usually any players in the wargameroom late at night.

3 plays, all face to face with my boys.

Daniel(My 11 year old) got this for his birthday and all my kids very much enjoy it. It isn't much of a game from my viewpoint and a pine for Heroscape as it has mostly replaced it as the game my kids want to play. It is better than a roll and move but not by much. We typically play two teams so the 4 of us can play.

The only good thing I can say is that it is very portable and the pigs can be used as toys when you are done playing. I would not say I hate it but it is a very bad game.

1 league and one non-league. I enjoy this game and keeping the league schedule of 1 game every two weeks is about the right frequency for me.

2 plays, face to face against my 5 year old Michael.

Both of my other boys had enjoyed this game when they were younger but it had been in the back of the closet and out of site for a while. When we were looking for something to play Michael found it and we played it twice. I think it also played it a few more times with his older brothers. Very simple game but the spinner makes it easy to lose on purpose which is nice.

My friend Rob had a game day and I got to play this beautiful game twice in one night, brining my total plays to 4. I enjoy this game and would like to get a few more plays but it is going to take a special occasion to get it done.

1 play face to face, with the London Map.

First time I had played that map and found it very crowded. Age of steam always makes my head hurt and I think I should avoid it and then someone suggests it and there I am again playing it just one more time.
