All of these were over a weekend with 3 children around 10 in our house.

Only a measly 7 plays this month, but that's because we've been pretty busy baby stuff, not to mention it being an extremely hectic time for me at work.

Merchants & Marauders has cemented itself as one of my most favorite games, and it has already been sitting at a rating of 10 for me for a couple months. One play was a solo game, one was a two-player, and one was a three-player. The more players there are the more interaction you get, but there's still a lot to do in the game with fewer, and you really don't have to change anything in the game to make it work. Heck, if you could find an extra set of ships I'd see no reason it couldn't work with five players (granted, it could get a little long).

Panic Station was the best new game to me this month. It was just a "solo" game where I controlled all six sets of player tokens to get a good feel for the game and the rules, but even without actual opponents I can already see how fun this one will be. Hidden traitor games have become one of my favorite game types, but really only the ones where you have more to do in the game than just sit around yelling at each other. Games like Werewolf and The Resistance have their time and place, but I never really like how you were always at the mercy of group think in those games. You may know for a fact that you're right about something, but unless you can convince enough others of that it really doesn't do much good. A game like BSG (another favorite of mine) excels when it comes to this because even if you're completely "on your own" there are still plenty of things you can do to help your side or hurt the opposition, and Panic Station has enough to it that it looks like it will deliver much the same - but faster.



Also of note this month...
I tried out Clans for the first time just last night. It's a neat abstract, and it felt a lot like a lighter version of The Bridges of Shangri-La (also by Colvini). The hidden color aspect was a really nice addition that added just enough uncertainty that you couldn't intentionally pick on the leader. I doubt that I'd ever buy my own copy of the game, but I certainly wouldn't turn down the chance to play it again a few times.

The Princes of Florence hit the table (again, just last night) for the first time in almost 10 years. It was only a two player game, which has a few balance issues, but I was reminded of how much I had enjoyed this game in the past and how good it would be with four or five players. Sooner or later I'll have to make that happen.

My "play" of Werewolf technically may not count (I'm counting it) because it was actually a PBF game that I moderated over a span of about two weeks. The funny thing is that while I feel the game is only so-so to play, I had a blast running it and am already looking forward to doing that again in the near future. As soon as work gets less busy again in a few weeks I'm thinking of setting up another round.


3 Plays
Merchants & Marauders

1 Play
Clans - NEW
Panic Station - NEW
The Princes of Florence - NEWish

mb I doubt many people ever bother to look at the recorded plays of others, but I've been leaving detailed comments on all of my games played for a long time now. If you're ever really bored, feel free to take a look: My Games Played

I participated in an event at Buckeye Game Fest that saw me play Battlestar Galactica three times in three days. Then, later in the month, I got drawn into another game. So, four plays in the month of October ties it for most played with Dominion. Other than that, I had 5 games with 2 plays each, and then a bunch of one-offs.

In all, I had 40 plays of 29 games, including 10 new to me. Buckeye Game Fest accounted for 26 plays of 21 games.

Blasts from the Past (at least one year since the last play):
- Shadows over Camelot (May 2009) - It has been displaced by other cooperative games, such as BSG.
- Ticket to Ride (October 2009) - I have played other TtR games since then, but not the original.
- Marrakech (May 2010) - No good reason for this; I enjoy the carpet game.
- Magical Athlete (October 2010) - I'm not a big fan, but I let myself get talked into it at BGF. Last play: BGF 2010.

The whole list:
Battlestar Galactica 4
Dominion 4
7 Wonders 2
Fight! 2
IceDice 2
Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game 2
Unpublished Prototype (one prototype) 2
Agricola 1
Black Ice 1

I had two games tie for most plays for the month Blood Bowl Team Manager and The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. Of the two, I think I'm enjoying BBTM more. Perhaps it's the cult of the new, but it's more likely due to the over 200 games of Blood Bowl I played in 90's.

I got to teach BBTM manager several times at this year's Buckeye Game Fest, and it tied with my most plays (five) at the convention along with Eminent Domain.

This months totals (43 games)

Blood Bowl: Team Manager - The Card Game 7

Out of 35 total plays, this game lead the way with seven plays. A quick dice game that is similar to many others. What I enjoy about this one is that it is confrontational. I'm surprised I played it seven times. Good stuff.

October was another light month of gaming. I didn't get many opportunities to play, and the ones I did have all fell towards the end of the month. My limited access to BGG seems to be directly influencing my interest in the hobby. I find myself less obsessed with getting more games and playing the ones I have. I'm still on the fence whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. But I do still enjoy myself when we actually sit down to play. And now I have a 3-way tie for most-played. I chose sushizock for the geeklist entry simply because it's my favorite of the 3.

Played this one three times this month with three different opponents. At least two of them bought the game after playing it with me.
I love this game.

This was a slow month for me. I was home sick the night we held game-night so that slowed things down a bit.

Star Trek: Fleet Captains = 4 plays
Clue = 3 plays
Lost Cities = 3 plays
Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries = 1 play
Stone Age = 1 play
Defenders of the Realm = 1 play
Lord of the Rings = 1 play

So that is a total of 14 sessions, no games which were new to me. This month promises to be much better, with 2 game nights & Camas Con coming up.

4x The Little Orchard thumbsupthumbsup (as fine as a game for 3-year-olds can get.)
3x Big Five thumbsup (it's obviously based on Qwirkle but it's nice to see how different it is; it's a card game now.)
3x Pino Sortino
3x Schotten-Totten (first time with the original cards; I played it with Battle Line cards many times before.)

2x 7 Wonders
2x Kunterbunte Autorelli

1x Drum Roll thumbsup (good Essen engine card game, just nothing outstanding: good is not good enough)
1x Finca
1x Die GulliPiratten: Der Schrecken der Kanalisation thumbsdown (gorgeous and funny bits, no interesting decisions)
1x Helvetia thumbsupthumbsup (good Essen engine game, and the marriage/village quarter ideas make it more interactive and interesting than the usual Essen fare)
1x Kingdom Builder thumbsup (light and tactical family fare with Dominion-like variability from Dominion designer)
1x Lancaster with Lancaster: The New Laws and unpublished expansion prototype (no rating as it's unfinished)
1x Last Will thumbsupthumbsup (good essen engine game with funny theme and interesting dynamics and rythm)
1x Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
1x Take it Higher! thumbsup (played the basic version which might be easier than Take it easy as it's optimized for the complex rules)
1x Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 - Team Asia & Legendary Asia thumbsup thumbsup (played the Legendary Asia version which is a fine addition to the series)
1x Tournay thumbsup (fine Essen engine game which doesn't have novelties but has lots of interesting theme/mechanism/component connections to Troyes)
