Every game I own gets played at least once a year. If I have trouble doing this or especially wanting to do this it's on the trading block.

I will be participating in the 365 play challenge. Most likely just the regular one, as I can't see myself playing 365 unique games. We'll see though!

Thunder Alley: Crew Chief Expansion - Coming soon to Kickstarter!
badge
Evil lurks here!
mbmbmbmbmb
Best games of 2016

Putting these in spoilers just to add suspense.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Nr. 3

Talon
This game takes the third spot with 12 plays and is a great sci-fi tactical space combat game. So simple to play, but so fun. Power Curve and charging mechanisms are brilliance.


Spoiler (click to reveal)
Nr.2

Thunder Alley
This game takes second spot because of the great races it has produced over the year. A seriously fun season via vassal pbem and the start of season 2 elevates it to second spot. I also really like Grand Prix, but TA has produced better gaming experiences this year. Waitng for Thunder Alley: Crew Chief Expansion which is on it's way now to introduce even more fun into TA.


And Game of the Year is...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Nr.1

Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles
Ahh, the brilliance. It just works on all levels for me. Rushing headlong into healthy enemies doesn't work and is deadly. It forces you to use good tactics to obtain your goal. 18 plays in 2016 and a lot more to come in 2017.

103 different games
55 new games

In 2015, I recorded 445 plays of 235 distinct games, 108 of which I played for the first time in 2015. These figures are all up from 419/203/91 in 2014. In fact, this is the first time I've exceeded 100 new games learned since 2008, which is a big positive for me.

Of my 445 plays, 136 were online via Yucata or Boite a Jeux.

Most played games of 2015 (excluding online):
9 - Shadow Hunters
7 - Castles of Mad King Ludwig
7 - Race for the Galaxy
7 - Sushi Go!
6 - Vegas Showdown
5 - AquaSphere
5 - Merchant of Venus
5 - Navegador

(Note that I only logged 1 play for sessions of things like Spyfall and Codenames that lasted multiple rounds.)

My favorite 2015 games:
1. The Voyages of Marco Polo
2. Mombasa
3. Steam Time
4. Grand Austria Hotel
5. Steampunk Rally

My favorite pre-2015 games that I learned in 2015:

2015 Yearly Summary:
In 2015, I played more different games than I ever have, and I learned more new games since 2008. I'm kind of happy I don't have any "dimes" on the year (excluding online), as I don't really want to play the same games over and over again. That said, I did get back to a lot of favorites, as I played each game in my top 10 at least once. I did not attend any new conventions or join any new game groups over the year, so I guess I can chalk it up to efficiency.

2016 Outlook:
2016 looks largely the same as 2015, which is definitely a good thing. I don't foresee any major changes in the local gaming scene, though I have noticed that attendance is up to the point where the usual spaces are becoming pretty crowded. I hope that doesn't affect the quality of gaming. On the convention front, I don't expect any major differences. I will still attend BGG.Con, WBC, ConnCon, and probably an abbreviated EuroQuest again, as well as ABG Beach Week. I don't expect to do Dreamation this year, but probably will attend GCOM Game Days since it's not on the same weekend as ConnCon, and I expect FalCon to be back this year. I will miss Origins again--maybe next year. On the whole though, with a similar schedule, I hope to be able to post numbers that are pretty comparable to those of 2015.

So a bonus question to my Meatball homies. The year is rapidly approaching its end. Looking back on what you have played this year, What are your top three (or top five, if you prefer) games released in 2015?

Or if you prefer, what were your top five 'new to you' games you played in 2015?

Edition:
University Game English Edition

Game has been played many times but is still in decent condition: only issue is that the box lid and a couple of the cards are a little dirty.

The instructions don't include a count of all of the components, but nothing appears to be missing.

My top five games from 2014:

1) La Granja - An amazing euro game that hits on all cylinders for me
2) Pandemic: The Cure - All of the tension of Pandemic with some push-your-luck added in for fun
3) Istanbul - Definitely deserving of the Kennerspiel
4) Five Tribes - I really enjoy the decisions in this one and the production is incredible
5) Planes - A quick mancala game with multi-use cards that makes for some great decisions.

Over the previous 5 years, I'm averaging 100.4 plays a year with a high of 142 plays in 2013 and a low of 66 in 2011.

With 55 plays so far this year, I'm on pace to slightly exceed the average.

How do you feel about the last year overall, gamingwise? Was it good, was it bad? Was it everything you wanted? Did you play the games you wanted? Did you buy the games you wanted? If you had to put the year into three words, what would they be?

Sorry Shane, but I am not prepared to play the word association game you offer this week. 2013 was a rough year. But I do want to offer some conversation. So I am going to do a 2013 retrospective below...

January - March: This was a rough period for me. In January my mother passed away. Dad followed in February. To be honest, I am still adjusting to this.

Due to my need to deal with family matters my gaming really suffered during this time period. I missed multiple regular sessions and one of our game retreats. This meant the gaming I did get was even more valued. I am a person of routines, and just being with friends around a game table was comforting.

Games that caught my attention included:
Ruhrschifffahrt 1769-1890 - I played this one out.

Trains - Due to the theme, I finally tried a Dominion-like game. I found out I really like this game.

1830 - One of my rare "10" ratings. Still love it.

Snowdonia - I like this game, enough to still own it, but I think the weather rules might need some tweaking.

Locomotive Werks - I only got one play of this before it disappeared. But I would like to try it again.

Mali Powstańcy: Warszawa 1944 - I think I spent more time prepping this game than I ever did playing it. I like the unusual theme (running messages in Nazi-controlled Warsaw). But even with my extensive play aids, I found the game play difficult and not nearly as satisfying as just playing Merchants of Venus.

April - June: The highlight of this period was my first ever attendance of Alan Moon's Gathering of Friends. It was a powerful experience! I met a lot of gamers I had not seen ever, or not seen in many years. I tend to keep my gaming in New Mexico, so usually my gaming relationships are through the keyboard. So this was real treat to cross paths with so many people I knew electronically.

Games from this time period:
Bullfrog Goldfield - I am still interested by this design. It is a demanding game to learn and to play. But it also has some real swingy luck. This probably ought to bug. But it is simulating the life and death of boomtowns. So the luck seems appropriate to me. Not sure how many people are really interested in playing it with me though.

Trains - I played this game a lot at the Gathering. It was about the only new game I could teach, and lots of people were wanting to try it.

Arctic Scavengers - I was introduced to this at the Gathering, and was fascinated by the post-apocolytic theme. I bought a copy in hopes my wife (who loves these sorts of tv shows) might be enticed to play. Nope. But I've enjoyed a fair number of games. I might now be done though.

Entenrallye - One real highlight at the Gathering was playing some older, generally unloved, games with Joe Huber and Mark Jackson. Both Entenrallye and Oswald Lord's Game of Politics were extremely fun events.

1846: The Race for the Midwest - My love of 18xx games was in force. I enjoyed a play of 1846 at the Gathering with Joe Rushannon and Michael Tsuk. back home I enjoyed a revisitation to 1860: Railways on the Isle of Wight with local friends.

Big Boss - I am often the guy who suggests the forgotten game. But Big Boss was a game that my game club began to request. It is a great game. But it is also a game that handles 6 players well, and it comes in a box that demands attention from the shelf.


July - September:

Games of note:
Hanabi - I got a copy after being exposed to this at the Gathering. We played it several times over July 4th weekend. I played it a few more times after that. But I ultimately decided I do not need this game in my collection. But I would play if requested.

7 Wonders - I still own my copy. But I am tired of this game. But friends keep requesting it. So I play it a fair bit.

Monster Factory - I introduced this game to a friend, who just adored it. She is a ceramic painter and is in the process of making tile versions of the game tiles, just so she can decorate her home with them! I played this quite a lot over the summer with her. After she bought her own copy of the game, I let mine go...

Fortress America - A friend grabbed this off the prize table a while back. And since I was the one to put it on the prize table, I was also interested in giving it a try. We played a couple of times. I enjoyed the older version years ago. Still basically the same game. Still fun. But I am content to play with my friend when the chances come up.

Helvetia - We played this a few times, and generally had fun with this title. But it fell into a second tier of games for me. So I decided to let my copy go.

Medina - Another older title I added back into my library this year. And another case where the game club started requesting it!


October - December: Sadly my beloved brother-in-law passed away around Thanksgiving. While this didn't jostle my schedule as much as my parent's passings earlier in the year, it did cast a pall on the holidays.

Game highlights:

Indonesia - My second go at this well-loved title. I guess this game is just not for me. I just found it annoying. I don't understand the game mechanisms, and how I am to use them to enact a plan. Then the graphic and component design seems to get in the way of play. I think I might get better at this game with more tries. But I already have 18xx, and I'd rather apply myself to becoming a better player of that system.

Time's Up! - In October my wife and I went on a week-long houseboat crusie with a group of 8 other people. They were a nest of Mah Johnng players, but in a style I had not played before. But I was the only "gamer" on board. With the large crew and limited space, it turned out that only Time's Up was a viable game for evening entertainment. Great fun. But I need a long break from this game.

Merchant of Venus (second edition) - I decided I wanted to explore the new version of MoV. (I just turned in my article to Gamers Alliance.) It was interesting. To give it a good side by side analysis, I arranged to play both the original game and the reprint with most any group I could talk into playing. Reactions were mixed. I come down on the side of the original. But I would agree to play the revised game if that was what was happening around me.

Nieuw Amsterdam - Larry Levy taught me this game at the Gathering. After thinking about it for a few months, I decided I wanted to explore it further and got a copy. The game club really embraced this title, and now soundly beat me at it every chance they get. I'm a bit tired of it, but it remains in high rotation.

Trick of the Rails - A friend in Japan arranged to sell me her copy of this unusual game. It really is 18xx: the cardgame. I am quite taken with it, and want to play more. Handy that it plays in 15 minutes or so.

Don Q. und der Dreh mit den Windmühlen - Our own Joe agreed to sell me a spare copy he had of this game. I've been getting lots of people to try it. I am having a lot of fun with this game.

Crokinole



So that was my year of gaming. It was a tough year personally, but my gaming hobby was a source of joy through the rough times. I look forward to a kinder 2014.

100% complete, and purchased in hopes that I can trade it away, lol. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but if it ends up a nice game, I'll probably keep it. Either way, it was at a good price enough to gamble.

I can't remember how much it was, but the 5 games we purchased all cost less than $15 together. (Separate stores, naturally.)

100% Complete and in great condition. Haven't played yet, so I couldn't tell you how good or great a game it is. This is the 1997 version shown in this picture:
http://boardgamegeek.com/image/176470/game-of-the-year

I'm fairly open as to what I might trade for, as my wishlist doesn't cover what I haven't seen. I'm easy to please, so hopefully we can find something to swap for.

If interested, just let me know, and I'll look through what you have and see if we can't make a deal.
