Hey, I just realized that tomorrow it will be one month since I first stumbled into Roliander's game room, not know any of you all. It has been an amazing month! In the last 30 days, I have played for the FIRST TIME, the following games. I'm looking forward to playing some of them again, now that I understand them.

(And all my other friends think I'm a hard-core gamer because I have Catan, Puerto Rico & Empire Builder.)

I've twice gotten to stand-in for Bernie, playing Battle Mage Jaes. One of two games on this list I've gotten to play more than once. But since this is more of a campaign, I can't really say I've played a whole game.

This is not the game we played. It was called Gula Gula, but I can't find it on BGG.

[note: Edited after Howitzer gave me the proper spelling "Gulo Gulo." The first draft had "Goola" as a stand-in.]

Both Cates and I learned how to play this game properly that night.

Played with Will & Rob at Mission: Games.

Loved this game, and of all the ones on this list, this is the #1 contender for a game I'm going to buy for my family.

The final game played at Mission: Games. (Non-game, Cates would point out). My favorite so far, even though I still don't understand. Yargo says he's going to help me rectify that.

I saw another list that said you could play this game much faster by just dealing out the checks face-down, and see who had the most money when it was all added up. I doubt that it would be quite as fun, but probably just as random! (I did terribly!)

My first exposure to Crokinole was playing in a tournament. I placed dead last without a win to my name. And now I've purchased a board for the kids department at my church.

Fun game. My only regret is that I played some expansion card just because I thought it would be interesting to have everyone required to say "Thanks, your majesty." It turned out to be voted "Most annoying move of the game." (Although, stepping on Brian's cat was "Most annoying move of the evening.")

Fun Game! I'm told it's like Starcraft Lite. I've only played the video game of Starcraft, but I can see what they meant. Cool game, with strategy and warfare, but not 3 hours long.
