This was a fantastic month for me with 51 plays of 32 different games (all face to face). New games were Agricola, Manoeuvre and Battlestations, plus a play of Source of the Nile, long gathering dust.

All non-pennies:

Agricola 6
Lost Cities 4
Coloretto 3
Galaxy Trucker 3
Ubongo - Das Duell 3
For Sale 2
Hearts 2
Lord of the Fries 2
Twilight Struggle 2

Gaxaxy Trucker was with a six year old friend with us on vacation. He asked for a game of it every morning so at the end of the week I sent him home with it.

Asterix & Obelix 5: all with my 6 year old daughter. She loves playing it and there's enough to keep me interested.

Agricola 2: I have only played the family game. I like it but will withhold judgement until I try the cards.

Bohnanza 2: Got some non-gamers to play this one.

Glory to Rome 2: My first two plays of this. I like it a lot.

Kingsburg 2: I played this a lot against the AI. Glad to have it to play in person.

Metropolys 2: Simple yet complex awesomeness.

Stake Your Claim 2: Kids

Villa Paletti 2: Thrift store find that proves to be quick fun.

All these got played once:

Very light month of game-playing for me. As such, my weekly Dungeons & Dragons game takes the top post, which rarely happens.

Aside from that, you may perceive a very definite theme in the list for this month. My Tuesday night game was running on a theme of Sid Sackson games this month. So with almost half of my plays this month being Sackson games, I'm going to write my own rules and give the geeklist slot to him.

Games new to me are in bold.

Started playing this again with two of my kids, so it takes the prize at 6 plays. Also getting a lot of attention with three plays each were Agricola, MECCG, Race, and Pit, which got played nearly constantly on a family gathering at Sunriver in the early part of the month. Hard to quantify "plays" of Pit though, as we were just playing hand after hand after hand, not keeping score to play actual "games" of it.

This month was a relatively light month for me with only 21 total plays. Three games tied for the top spot with two plays each. Two of those are SdJ winners that I knew I would enjoy. However, I'm giving the nod to Patrician as it was a very pleasant surprise. The fact that my wife enjoyed it enough to ask for a second game of it says a lot. Here's the full list:

Patrician x 2
Scotland Yard x 2
Ticket to Ride x 2
Agricola
Atlantic Star
Battleship
Carrousel
Coloretto
Crokinole
Empire Builder
Giganten
Nautilus
Race for the Galaxy
Railroad Tycoon
Rebel Rails
Ricochet Robots
StreetSoccer
Ticket to Ride: Europe

Total: 21 plays of 18 games

I only log F2F games
5 New to Me

Train Games: 28%

New Game of the Month: I'm going to go with Rebel Rails on this one. I've been waiting on a copy of this for a long time and was not disappointed. Patrician is a great light filler that will likely find its way into the collection. What good things can I say about Agricola that haven't been said already? I've been desperately trying to get more games played. I guess I'm going to have to go solo I was very happy to finally get Giganten to the table, though I did horribly. I am happy with the experience. Ricochet Robots was played with an incorrect rule, so that hurt it a little. May have some trouble seeing it played again.

New Games in the Collection: 12
Agricola
Brass
Caylus Magna Carta
Glory to Rome
In the Year of the Dragon
Nexus
Pandemic
Race for the Galaxy
Thebes
Ticket to Ride Card Game
Tzaar
West Riding

Most of these are a birthday order (from March) that finally shipped once Agricola became available.

Somebody gave me a pack of Fluxx Blanxx for my birthday, so I played a lot of Zombie Fluxx to playtest a hideously complicated Creeper card I devised. Other than that, it was a very wide-open month, with nothing getting more than 2 plays, and only To Court the King coming out more than once (as opposed to two plays in a row).

For the "and more" part, I played Zendo for the first time since Origins, and I played my first ever game of Agricola (see my New to You entry for more). No Dominion this month; I'm thinking that now that playtesting is over and the game has gone to the printer, I probably won't see it again until it's released.

Games played this month:
Zombie Fluxx 10
Aquarius 2
Fluxx 2
To Court the King 2
TZAAR 2
Agricola 1
Alhambra 1
AmuseAmaze 1
Aquaretto 1
Architekton 1
Can't Stop 1
Cloud 9 1
Container 1
Cows Can't Dance (but they like to be asked) 1
Downfall of Pompeii, The 1
Euphrates & Tigris Card Game 1
Go Gin 1
Liar's Dice 1
Metropolys 1
Shadows over Camelot 1
Ticket to Ride 1
Torres 1
Tower of Babel 1
TransAmerica 1
TransEuropa 1
Upwords 1
wordXchange 1
Zendo 1

Well, I played a whopping 62 games this month thanks to GenCon, but non of them very often.

I played 4 games 4 times:

Hanging Gardens - I liked it enough to trade for a copy, and it's still getting played.

Schotten Totten - A classic I still rate a 10.

Race for the Galaxy - A new classic I bumped to a 10.

Snorta! - A great party game that takes so little time it's easy to play it again.

The games I played more than once last month:

Memoir '44: 4
Spank the Monkey: 3
De Bellis Antiquitatis: 2
Tsuro: 2


M'44 is the only one I hadn't played before, and I must say I rather liked it. My opponent took being defeated four times in a row almost graciously. devil

This month was my new record for games played in a month: 41. I live by myself so don't often have chances to play lots of games. I had a 9 and 6 year old staying with me for a week (hence games like Slamwich and Monopoly Junior), and my brother stayed with me for a week as well; we tried to play through all of my 2-player games and made it most of the way... but were distracted by Agricola.

- games in bold were new to me

Four plays of Alhambra, all of which were two player with the dummy. (That is myself, an opponent and a dummy player. Not myself and an opponent I'm calling the dummy.) Have also been playing at Boite a jeux so count this ahead of the other game I've played four times, even with three games of that solo. (ETA: I only log face-to-face games so no internet or solo play is counted here.)

4 Alhambra - I seem to be in the middle between casual gamer and game geek. I want to play more complicated games than most of my friends are used to and am more willing/inclined to play gateway games than my gamer friends. This game is an example of that for me. It gets treated like a heavy filler at my game group but was apparently a little complicated on first play for those I've taught it to.

4 Agricola - I prefer the family version but I keep playing with the cards. I enjoy myself either way and could easily be convinced to play but I'm not going to suggest the cards be used.

2 Puerto Rico - I may finally have this mentally sorted, the second of these games saw me only 4vp from first.

2 Vikings - Still getting killed in the fisherman status at the very end practically every game I play. angry

1 Die Macher - Game number two and while still last I managed to improve significantly (100 behind first instead of 100 behind fourth). thumbsup

1 Imperial - Completely new mechanics to me. I was aware of the Rondel but had never played a game with it before this. I'm quite certain I've never come across such fluid ownership before either. Having 'war' be so quickly resolved was strange as well.

1 Pandemic - I think I've played one game of this that the players won and that irks me. I will play if asked and there isn't something better on offer, but I won't be suggesting it.

1 The Pillars of the Earth - Seems like not a lot of control over what you get to do, especially if you're last out of the bag. Not a game I'm going to be requesting.

1 Power Grid - My first win, after nine games, I expect to keep enjoying this for quite some time. Especially if I get to play on different boards. thumbsup

1 The Princes of Florence - Still need to play this with more than three to see how much the initial auction changes. But it does seem to work well for me which means there may be something to the theory of gamer types (ENFJ >> Applying the Myers-Brigg Personality Test to Games and Gamers).

1 Ticket to Ride (with Ticket to Ride: USA 1910) - New destinations noticeably reduce my advantage in knowing what routes are in game. Bigger cards are a little easier to deal with as well.

1 Ticket to Ride: Märklin - Has more to consider than the original, knowing when to pick up the passengers seems to be one of the biggest factors in how well you do.

1 Tikal - I enjoy this game, possibly a result of the Action point allocation limiting how much can be done each turn. (As opposed to restrictions caused by not having the resources you want (Catan) or getting the wrong tile (Carcassonne) etc.) thumbsup

1 Tongiaki: Journey into the Unknown - Five people so very little control possible but it's a fun filler.

Agricola and Imperial were new to me; Puerto Rico and Pillars of the Earth were practically so after about six months passing since my first play of each.

(First time adding to one of these lists)

My most played game in August is a largely unknown but remarkably fun dexterity game that I found at a toy store in Dublin, Ireland. It has proven to be an excellent game to take along on visits with family or to any gathering that will involve a lot of people. It always manages to draw a crowd of gamers and non-gamers alike, and sooner or later everyone wants to give it a try. It also plays very quickly, so it's common to get in numerous plays in a single sitting. Frankly, I'm surprised at having only 8 plays listed - chances are I forgot to add a few.

Short play time helps to push Pandemic up to a close second in my list, but in this case the biggest impact comes from the fact that it works so well with two players. That makes it perfect for a quiet night of gaming with my wife, especially since she's not really a fan of games with a lot of direct confrontation/competition between players.

Agricola is the only game that was new to me, and the only reason it doesn't list higher is because I first bought it on the 29th. Considering that it's only September 1st and I have already matched the number of August plays, it's going to sit far higher next time around...
