Year after year after year, we play the same games over and over again, and lots of games sit around collecting dust. Some of our games are even still in their original plastic and unpunched. Well, NO MORE.

Last year we got rid of most of the dead weight in our collection. I purged tons of games that we knew we'd never play, most of which were crap. We're down to a much more streamlined collection, and we intend to use it.

This year, we're going to try to play all of our games. It may take more than a year, but we're going to try to get it done in 2012. To keep us honest, I'm going to update this list with the games as we play them.

1/6/2012: So far, we're managing a couple of games a night. This has been great. It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts.

Bad... BAAAAAAAAD game.

However, the mystery cards are fun. We're going to keep those for challenging each other in the car and throw the rest away.

Well, this was a fun little game. The scoring mechanism is painfully fiddly, but other than that, it plays pretty well. I don't know why we never played this.
