Jake and Sabrina have played Biblios a lot. Jason had played at least once, but it was Korey's introduction to the game.

We accidentally hit on an idea to spice up the game a little bit. Instead of placing all dice on 3 to start the game, we rolled them instead, to give it a little flavor. I thought it worked out well, adding more tension to which colors of dice we pursued.

Collection Status: Keep for a Few More Plays - Low Rotation

I want to like Biblios more than I do. I know that it is a filler game and, as such, it is not going to offer a lot of depth or intrigue, but the game seems stagnant to me.

In Biblios, players collect sets of cards in order to have a majority. If a player has a majority of set, then they score points equal to a dice face that represents the category. As the game is played, players sometimes have the option to manipulate the dice up or down in order to give themselves an advantage or disadvantage their opponents.

Now, I have only played Biblios a few times, but in each of those games I have never seen a dice result manipulated more than one or two points. This means that the scores remain fairly stagnant. Furthermore, players have few chances to switch from one set to another if they notice that their score is decreasing, meaning that their best hope is to bring down other players scores. Essentially, I feel like Biblios is a game that is over before it begins and really is heavily luck dependent.

I want to play it a few more times just to make sure I am not missing something, but I don't think that I am.

I had 9 new to me games in September, no new to me games in October, and 8 new to me games in November. Weird the way that works out.

Codenames: Deep Undercover - 3 plays
First Published 2016
I'm not a fan of the naughty genre. This is one of those.

Biblios - 2 plays
First Published 2007
Not sure how I missed this the first time around. Set collection card game. Pay no attention to the dice. You don't actually roll them.

M.U.L.E. The Board Game - 1 play
First Published 2015
Ever since this came out, I've been wanting to play it for the nostalgia value. Well, it wasn't going to happen by itself. I checked it out of the club library, read the rules, and then pushed it to the table. It didn't disappoint. It's not going into heavy rotation, but somebody pulled up the 8-bit music on their phone and there we were playing M.U.L.E.

Flick 'em Up! - 1 play
First Published 2015
Flicking games are the least objectionable type of dexterity game. Clever titles usually make for bad games, but this one is okay.

Kribbeln - 1 play
First Published 2016
Get the highest dice total while meeting the current round's objective based on the colors of the die faces--each die has a different color on each face and there are six different colors.

Hope City - 1 play
First Published 0
The group I was in gave up on this game before it was over, so I may never know if there's actually a game there.

Dice Forge - 1 play
First Published 2017
Roll dice, which faces change during the game. Like Rattlebones, only better. Still not sure how I feel about the game.

New York Slice - 1 play
First Published 2017
Piece o' Cake, but with pizza. Multi-player "I cut, you choose." Not a fan, but maybe you'll like it.

Twice tonight, first time went to a tiebreaker. It's really amazing how differently this game can play so many times.

My Secret Santa was amazing this year. Friendly messages and thoughtful gifts.


Told me he was first sending me something to keep me warm on cold winter nights, and wow, I received a beautiful Fleece sweater from L.L.Bean.

Then another message that other gifts should be arriving soon, and when I got the box, three more presents, all with lovely notes!


A game that has been on my list for awhile. A personal favorite of my Santa.


A two player game I was really looking for.


And more Magic cards to feed my horrible addiction.

Biblios
Patchwork
Magic: The Gathering

Thank you Santa! You're the best. Merry Christmas!

One of my favorite fillers that just doesn't get enough play. Probably because I win all the time. My wife says "youre good at card counting". Yeah impossible because we remove a ton of stuff in a 2 player game before it even starts!

My new updated rank according to BGG scale: 7 (previous rank 7.32)
Previous Plays: 6
Last Play: September 2016
Record: 5-2, I won this one
Updated Rankings: N/A

Quick, very different auction style than most auction games. Tough decisions on what to throw into the auction and what to give your opponents. Burned a few times on this but still pulled out the W. Removing of the cards pre-game really throws things for a loop in 2player. Really enjoy it and a great filler.

My wife Lori found this in the stationery section. She's good at this stuff. Wonder how long it was languishing there.

$1.99 at Grand GW. Like new and unplayed. I think the previous owners may have thought it was stationery.
