For those wondering about the challenge and wanting to get in on the prizes if I fail. Check out the home geeklist here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/49941/365-games-in-365-day...

As well, those wondering what games I have have played so far, what games I have left and what games I've added to my collection in 2010 click here: http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/jonocop

At the halfway point of my journey and I'm not doing too badly. Well over halfway on playing games out of my collection (although a lot of the remaining games are of the heftier variety). Game plays are off by about half a dozen, but I think a solid July should get me even (or even ahead of schedule).

My game buying subsided quite a bit (only two purchases and those were with a $50 GC that I picked up in a trade).

I can't reinforce enough that this exercise has made me realize that games that are and are not worth keeping. This month saw me trade two games from my collection (MedWar Sicily and Hellenes) that just didn't do it for me and two games (Caesar and Cleopatra and Hera and Zeus) that I hadn't played forever and had lost their lustre.

Total game plays: 29 (total since December 26, 2009 - 177). 188 game plays remaining.

Games played out of my collection: 9 (total since December 26, 2009 - 80). 54 games remaining.

On the fiddlier side of wargames for me...but it was an interesting game and well worth the $17.50 I paid for it.

Really like this game. Has the feel of a wargame but is light enough that you can get the non-wargame crowd to at least give it a sniff. Only trading this because my buddy Roger has it and we're trying to eliminate as much duplication as possible - especially with games we only play together.

Haven't played this since BGG.con and it took a little bit to get the hang of it. But once we got going it was pretty cutthroat and very fun.

Played with the River, Inns and Cathedrals AND the base game. It was a big game and quite frustrating. We both got a little greedy and went after big cities we couldn't finish only to have our meeples tied up all game.

This is a 2010 purchase but I still get the game plays. And it's a fun little game...and very beautiful at that.

Enjoyed it better with 4 people. With three it's really like a two-phase turn as you know (and need to plan for) the "other" two Gods who will be available for offerings in the next turn. This adds a different dynamic...one that I think takes away from the mystique of the game.

Man I love this series. Want to play it more and more, but it only seems to get to the table every 6 months or so.

This is my 2nd play and I'm not fond of how unbalanced it is. For trade.

It's been a while and this was a very refreshing and tense battle to the finish...the winner (me) only had 271 electoral college votes!

Took a while to get this to the table but it was quite enjoyable. Tons of very cool bits. Likely a keeper.

Still a favourite of my wife's. And if playing this with her means I can get some of my other games played, I'm quite happy to oblige. She beat me handily - 3 games to 1.
