Last January was a great month (I will be lucky to break 10 plays of any game this month with only 1 new game). A very strong game with a couple of OK games and then some sucky games.
KingsburgWe played the heck out of this for the next few month. I agree with what I said then that it is one of the best games I had played for a while. I got to play it again in December and actually didn;t enjoy it that much but I blame that on it being a learning game for 3 other people who play games extremely slowly. It did make my wife and I want to play it some more.
This is hands down the best new game to me played this month. Probably the best new game to me since Stone Age or Small World. It has everything I like in a game. I am sure by the middle of next month I will break out the Expansion and include that when I play it.
FITSWe played this as a filler game for the next few months and I would be happy to get it out again. It plays very quickly and you can explain it quickly. A brainburner without distracting from being able to socialize.
I really enjoyed FITS. We played it as a pickup game while my brother-in-laws played a 150 minutes game of Stone Age (Yeah you heard me right). Everyone enjoyed it. It gets frustrating (just like Tetris) but I will happily play this game any time
Eat Poop You CatPeople still ask for this when we get together. I like that we have played it with teenagers as well as the adults. I want to try Telestrations, but Iam worried it will fall flat against this free game.
Everyone enjoyed this. We played it with people my age and in one of the games we even let a 10 year old play with us. We all laughed so hard. We got edgy, but not too edgy (except when playing with the 10 year old when we kept it clean) and it just worked. This will get played a lot.
Mexican TrainYeah, our friends took this too seriously and frustrated with their draw. It's dominoes... Fine not playing it ever.
I will play this game when neighbours are over, as they like it. That is all I can really say about a dominoes game. It fills in some time and we can chat while playing.
Scrabble SLAM!Hasn't been played since. Definitely a 'feh' type of game. Not terrible but still nothing worth going out the way for.
This is one if we just want to be loud and frantic for 10 minutes. Not a bad waste of time and cheap enough to not worry about the money spent on it. Fun. I like words though. Loudest person wins!
Archaeology: The Card GameThis got played at work a lot, and Heather even enjoyed it enough that we whipped it out a bit. I think it needs to get played some more.
Got this for Christmas from my buddy, and we played it at work one lunchtime. I like this as a lunchtime time filler game. It was a lot of fun. Definitely the best of the fillers we played this month.
DominionI actually got to really like this game after playign it a few more times. Unfortunately the wife was really put off with our first couple of plays. If I could have her enjoy it a little then this one would hit the table each Thursday with our Power Grid game night with Mike.
So I bought this game to learn it and explain it to my neighbour who bought it or christmas and couldn't get his head around it. I also thought my wife and I would play it enough to justify it. After 2 plays I thought it was simply OK but my wife disliked it enough to say she probably will not play this again. I will get it out to teach to new poeple if the wife isn't there. This shouldn't get the plays that everyone else seems to get from it.
Sequence for KidsElijah didn't really like this game. I need to try again and see if he enjoys it more. He's 6 now and although not ready for something like Memoir or such he might like something like this more now.
So we play Sequence a little and this seemed liek a good gateway to more advanced game for my 5 year old. He liked it but seemed to just like to play the last card he got, rather than really goign for his Sequences. I want to continue to play this and see if he can get what this game really is about.
