In excellent condition. Includes Keltis: Neue Wege, Neue Ziele expansion. Both are Kosmos first editions, in excellent condition; both are in German and language-independent, and include a printout of the rules.

Note that both games are stored in the (narrow) expansion box, and I don't have the (overly wide) box for the original game.

(new)

I'm no a big fan of Lost Cities, but I do like Keltis in all its shapes and forms. It uses the same mechanism as Lost Cities. There are multiple suits of card with different colours and you try to play card of the same colour in order, from high to low or the other way around, to move your pawn forward, to that spot on the track or tracks on the board. Mostly you get more points the further you are located on a track, it goes from negative to positive points. At least in the base game. There are multiple expansion that play with this basic concept. I enjoyed all the versions I played, much better than Lost Cities.

redtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrain

I'm very excited to take part in the 2016 Advent Challenge!

2016 has been a VERY challenging year for me with a couple really hard things including the death of a family member and an unexpected major house renovation. Although I have completed the 100x1 challenge and the 365 Play Challenge, and have so far played at least one game each day, I have fallen behind on my 10x10 Challenge and the goal of playing 366 Unique Games this year. I also had to pull out of the two Secret Santas that I was hoping to do, and that was sad. So I'm pleased with the idea of ending the year with a positive, very reachable challenge!

I am lucky to have a wonderful husband and two great kids (14 and 10) who play games with me daily, so playing at least one game a day in December is already on my list. I love the additional Santa challenges and the idea of posting pictures and comments here and on twitter ( @mamagames ), as well as generally being part of a festive, happy community.

redtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrainredtraingreentrain

December 1
Play the newest addition to your gaming collection.

(Prediction: Right now, this would be Isle of Skye... unless I receive any games between now and the start of the challenge!)

What We Played: 12 Days

I ordered this game on a whim last week when I was ordering a new cd of Christmas music, so it became the newest addition to our collection. It was a very fitting way to kick off the advent challenge, too!

We'd never played it before and found it played very well with our kids, who are fans of other light card-drafting, set-collecting games like Sushi Go. I think this one will see lots of good holiday play.

December 2
Play your current favorite game.

(Prediction: Really hard to choose, but I think I'll go with Flash Point.)

What We Played: Flash Point



We have loved cooperative games this year, and for us, Flash Point hits the sweet spot of tough but not killer, and fairly easy mechanics with deep enough strategy. Right now we're trying to beat the High Rise board. We came closer tonight than we have before but still were defeated when an explosion took out two POIs at once.

December 3
Play a dexterity game.

(Prediction: Villa Paletti is a family favorite.)


What We Played: Villa Paletti



One of our family traditions is that each August, on or right around our anniversary, we play all the Spiel des Jahres winners since the year we got married (1998). It has been so much fun collecting them and playing them together. Villa Paletti was one of the SdJ winners and we bought an Italian copy so we could have the lovely hard wood platforms. My 10 year old daughter and I had a very risky, high-piled, teetering game tonight but I squeaked out a win in the end!

December 4
Play a game that is in your top 10 games.

(Prediction: We have so many to choose from... but as a family, we'd probably pick Machi Koro for this year.)

What We Played: Machi Koro



Asking us to choose our favorite game (or even top ten) is like asking us to choose a favorite child... or what we prefer, breathing, eating, or sleeping.

But Machi Koro ranks very high in the number of plays and number of laughs around the family game table for the end of 2015 and all of 2016, so we thought it fit this category well.

We like to play Machi Koro with the original game and both expansions minus a couple cards that none of us ever buy (Demolition Company, Moving Company, and maybe one or two others). We just tend not to be aggressive, take-that kind of players and so we avoid that kind of card.

We have recently been playing on a MAYOR playmat and loving it.

December 5
Have your favorite beverage while playing games.

(Prediction: My family's favorite hot drink is called a "Northwest Passage" - it is hot spiced apple cider with butter and brown sugar blended in. We might play something somehow related - Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries?)

What We Played: Hey! That's My Fish!



Since we were deeply enjoying our "Northwest Passages," my kids wanted in on the game action. That meant we couldn't play TtR Nordic Countries, since that one is 2-player. We tossed around a few ideas but the kids were most enthusiastic to play Hey! That's My Fish! even after we pointed out it was entirely the wrong pole!



(I also played a game of Tumble and a round of Bingo with my daughter - I had picked up very cheap copies at the holiday sales to use with my co-op class and I wanted to make sure they were both truly complete and functional, so we gave them a test run.)

December 6
Play a game with dice.

(Prediction: Again - lots to choose from - maybe Pandemic: The Cure.)


What We Played: Catan Dice Game



Tuesdays are long days for me - my kids have classes at our homeschool co-op (one of which - Growing Gamers! - I teach/facilitate), and that's followed by swim lessons. There's just something about either the long day or the environment there that tends to trigger my migraines, and I had a doozy by dinner time. Thankfully, with medicine and a heating pad on my neck, the migraine eased enough by bedtime that I could enjoy a short game of Catan Dice with my husband. We've owned this one for years and years and it's such a nice, comfortable, simple filler.

(I also played Castle Panic: Engines of War with the kids at the co-op, and we won!)

December 7
Post a comment on another participant's Advent list.

(Prediction: Love the idea of creating community. I think I will also TRY to challenge myself to not only comment on an Advent List but also to play a game in someone else's list on this day! So come on, play games I can put my hands on!)

What We Played: Pandemic: The Cure and Castle Panic: Engines of War



Today we were home all day, with the kids working on some homeschooling bookwork, and cold temps keeping us inside. I used that to my advantage, and as I guided the kids through their work or took breaks for meals, I came back here to read through many of your lists and leave some comments. In fact, I read and commented on every list that comes before mine (#1-62 in this geeklist)! I had a great time doing it and intend to "meet" the rest of you (#64-115) as the month rolls on. I loved seeing what you were playing and getting some great ideas too.

We decided to play Pandemic: The Cure because it popped on SO MANY of your lists as games you've played in the last 6 days - especially for the dice day. We actually had a pretty easy time of it and won with the scientist and the containment specialist.



Then - since we were on a roll - we tried Castle Panic with the new Engines of War expansion. I had played it at my co-op yesterday and we ~thought~ we won, but we weren't following the rules for firing the catapult exactly right. So tonight we tried with the correct rules. And it turned out that those rules wouldn't have made a difference tonight - we got HAMMERED very early on with lots of the "draw 4 monster tokens" and the other specials that made us draw more tokens, more tokens. We got the Barracks early on too (made the first monster drawn on each turn appear in the same numbered arc) that made defending there almost impossible. I'm actually proud that we made it as far as we did - we got down to only having 4 tokens on the board - 4 plain old, ordinary Trolls - before one of them took down the last remaining tower.

December 8
Post a picture of you and the game you will play tonight.

(Prediction: Ooh, the dreaded selfie! I will have to find a way to tie the game choice into the challenge... maybe we can play my daughter's choice - What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar? - and take photos of ourselves, our Klondike bar treats, and the game!)

What We Played:
Blend Off!



Our other game plans were usurped by a Kickstarter package on the doorstep... it held a delicious little speedy dice-rolling family filler, Blend Off. We had a great time and I pulled out a 27 pt win over my daughter's 22 pts. At the end of the game, my daughter and I took a selfie with the brand new game box.



December 9
Play a game that requires using pencil and paper.

(Prediction: Our kids love Scattergories and Pictionary...)


What We Played: Pictionary



I have enjoyed this simple party game since it came out in the 80's - it was one of the dozen or so board games my family owned when I was growing up. We have several versions in our collection, and tonight we played our 2009 Parker Brothers box, which includes a challenge die (you may roll to draw normally, with the opposite hand, with your eyes closed, have to draw two words in one timer flip, or draw in a single line without lifting the pencil).

Our family is just a little unbalanced for this kind of game, with two adults, a 14 yo, and a 10 yo. We typically draw meeples or dice to pick teams - tonight it was dice - and my husband and I were on a team against the kids. To help make up the balance, my husband and I always rolled the challenge die when we drew but the kids always drew normally. It helped a bit, but really my daughter struggles with being able to focus on getting QUICKLY to the point! (If the word is "hat," she'll start by first drawing a person, with clothes, with hair, with facial features, and ~eventually~ add the hat.) Even so, we had a nice family evening of drawing and guessing.

December 10
Play a game that is card driven.

(Prediction: If we have time - we're often very busy on Saturdays in December - I'd love to play the Castles of Burgundy Card Game. Otherwise, we might play Flip City.)


What We Played: 7 Wonders Duel



We wound up somewhere in the middle ground of busy today - not enough time to play Castles of Burgundy Cards - which we enjoy but aren't familiar enough to set up quickly - but more time than just a quick Flip City. So my husband and I landed on 7 Wonders Duel, where I ~almost~ got that elusive military victory but he snatched away the one last card I needed... instead, I had to settle for regular-old victory by topping him in points at the end.

December 11
Play your favorite filler.

(Prediction: For 2016, this was definitely Sushi Go.)


What We Played: Sushi Go, and also Letters to Santa (Love Letter) and Santa's Bag



Without a doubt, Sushi Go was our filler of 2016. My daughter got it for Christmas 2015 and I took to carrying it in the bottom of my camera bag, which goes almost everywhere we go. We have played it at home, at friends' houses, at restaurants, at parks, at the doctor's office, at the mechanic... we have played a LOT of Sushi Go. My daughter got Sushi Go Party for her birthday last month and we love that one at home, but still take Sushi Go on the go.



After playing a quick game of Sushi Go, we added Letters to Santa, which is the Christmas variant of Love Letter, another of our top favorite fillers. And then my daughter asked to play "just one more" Christmas game, so we threw in a round of Santa's Bag too.

December 12

Wish someone a Merry Christmas today.

(Prediction: That will be easy enough - and maybe a chance to play a Christmas game out in public somewhere - Letters to Santa?)

What We Played: Holiday Fluxx



We didn't get a chance to play at the Boys & Girls Club (because our friends couldn't make it) or out in public, but we did wish several folks a Merry Christmas while we were out shopping and running errands, so we met that part of the challenge.

I knew I wanted to play a holiday-themed game, and since we'd played Letters to Santa yesterday, we went with Holiday Fluxx today. Say what you will about the chaos and randomness of Fluxx - this light, funny card game has been a favorite of ours since it first came out. We enjoy the holiday version, especially with a few promo cards tossed in, like the Fruitcake Creeper.

Late at night, my daughter wrote me a little note that said she'd had a fun day, but the BEST part, she said, was "playing a funny game together." That's what it's all about, folks.

December 13

Play a game you received last year for Christmas.


(Prediction: Castle Panic! Even better because Tuesdays I teach a homeschool co-op class in board games and my students love this one.)

What We Played:
Splendor



Another wrong prediction! My Castle-Panic-loving student was at co-op today but came in a little late, so I was already engaged in a game of Dixit with some other students. He wound up finding two friends to play with, instead of me.



Then tonight we had a freak little snow, where we got two inches REALLY FAST, in about an hour - of course the same hour that my husband had to go out to pick our daughter up and make his way home again. THE STRESS. So I couldn't handle any additional stress to fret about orcs and goblins and trolls. Instead, we played Splendor, which is another of my Christmas presents from 2015.

We have really enjoyed Splendor this year, playing it so much that we hooked other friends on it and wound up giving it at least twice as gifts. We have played a lot of two-player Splendor this year and find it really calming and enjoyable.

December 14
Open a door for someone today.

(Prediction: What a nice gesture. Maybe we'll also play a game with doors... The Secret Door, or Castles of Mad King Ludwig?)

What We Played:
The Secret Door



After a long day filled with co-op paperwork, homeschooling, and housework, we had a long ~evening~ filled with the horrors of shopping in actual stores in December! I needed a few things for tomorrow (5 mega bottles of hair conditioner and 10 containers of cornstarch...) plus my husband wanted a new pair of gloves for the impending cold snap. I did manage to hold a few doors for my family and a few other folks, but it didn't leave a lot of time leftover for games. Luckily, my daughter loves The Secret Door and it was my thematic prediction anyway, so the three of us played a quick game before bed.

December 15
Give someone a hug today.

(Prediction: So sweet! Also a great excuse to play the kids' favorite The Big Taboo with Bendy Bob and give him lots of hugs.)


What We Played: The Big Taboo



I was very lucky to give LOTS of hugs today. Not only my husband, my son, my daughter, and my dog (hey! it counts!) but also a whole bunch of the kids at my co-op (at least seven real huggers, and there may have been more that I am forgetting).

The kids were very amused to have a family game of The Big Taboo tonight - it was my daughter and husband against me and my son. It was a fairly close game (because we give my daughter endless free passes for words she doesn't know) but my son and I pulled out a victory in the end. It was a lovely, cozy night (we're in the middle of the Polar Vortex cold here this week) with the four of us on two couches, lots of hugging and cuddling and lap-sitting and laughing.

I know that "party" games like this sometimes get the short end here and on other game sites & forums because they're not "gamers' games" - but they bring so much joy and laughter to our family, and always have, that they have a firm space on our shelves.

December 16

Rogue One opens at the theaters - Santa doesn't mind if you go see the movie instead of gaming!

(Prediction: Oh, Santa, we can do both! Star Wars Pictopia and Star Wars Risk have been favorites this year, and my husband and son might get in a game of X-Wing.)

What We Played: Star Wars Pictopia

(How are there NO images for this on the Geek? I will have to fix that.)

We are waiting to see Rogue One until my sister and her partner can join us for the holidays... we're actually going to see it on Christmas Eve, as we have always enjoyed going out to a special movie that night.

While we wait, we'll take on some picture trivia from the previous movies. Tonight I was pleasantly surprised at how well our 10 year old daughter did (and she's not even a super-fan!). It was a close game, but my husband pulled out the win in the end.

December 17

Start player is the first person that put up their Christmas lights.


(Prediction: Fun - hopefully since this is a Saturday we can get together with friends and make this a real challenge... I would love to play something with lights - maybe Khet 2.0 with lasers, or the lovely Lanterns.)

What We Played:
Cavern Tavern



Snow and low temps and a layer of ice kept us home today, and we don't do outside lights, but decided that since I was the first one to put holiday music on the stereo and the first one to wrap a present, I would go first.

We had every intention of having a quiet evening of Lanterns when the intrepid delivery service arrived with our Kickstarter copy of Cavern Tavern - obviously, we had to play immediately! There was a bit of a learning curve, and a few somewhat ambiguous rules, but by the second half of the game we were in the groove. It's a dice/worker placement game where you're trying to fill orders at a fantasy tavern run by Nasty the Dwarf, with a few elements of take-that. I played with my husband and 14 year old son and we had a very fun evening.

December 18
Have holiday treats for your gaming guests while you game.

(Prediction: I'm not sure if we'll have guests or game with just our family, but either way we can enjoy Christmas cookies! Maybe we'll make hex cookies and play Settlers of Catan!)

What We Played: Quelf



We didn't get a chance to get together with friends, and our day was VERY full of errands, shopping, wrapping, planning, etc, so we didn't even have time to make our own cookies. But MechDaddy treated us with a tray of fudge and a tray of brownie bites, and we decided the mood was more suited to a silly family party game. That led us right to Quelf, which is definitely goofy! Here is a peek at the game, the treats, and my daughter laughing hysterically because our topic for her turn was "Types of Underwear."



December 19

Wear something Christmassy while gaming.

(Prediction: Another chance for a great photo... and maybe we'll pick a very red-and-green box like Keltis!)

What We Played: Keltis



My munchkins were not up for a family game tonight - the teen was on Skype playing D&D with friends, and the tween had just gotten home from a 2 hour dance rehearsal. That's fine, MechDaddy and I enjoy Keltis with just two - it's a little step away from the original Lost Cities, which we love. We enjoyed a cozy little game in which I trounced him (58-29) while wearing a snowman hat wearing a Santa hat. laugh MechDaddy didn't want to be in the picture, so here I am with my "something Christmassy" and the holiday-colored Keltis.



December 20
Roll a D6... 1 = play a Euro 2 = Play a thematic game 3 = Play a dice game 4 = Play a card game 5 = Play a kid's game 6 = Play a dexterity game

(Prediction: Definitely fun! I think we'll also roll another die for high roll and that player gets to choose from within that category! I might choose 1 = Karuba 2 = Survive! 3 = Roll for the Galaxy 4 = The Oregon Trail 5 = Mad Libs 6 = Terror in Meeple City)


What We Played: Chef Alfredo



We let our daughter roll the d6, and she got a 5, so since she was the honorary kid at the table, we let her pick the game as well. I'd just received an order from Amazon of cheap Queen Kids games for my homeschool co-op gaming class, and my daughter wanted to try one of these. We played Chef Alfredo, which is a memory game with a little bluffing aspect - it got surprisingly tricky at the end! MechDaddy won, 16 to 10 to 10.

December 21
Play a Euro.

(Prediction: Maybe a chance to play Thurn and Taxis one more time this year.)

What We Played: Settlers of Catan, the Euro that started it all (for us)



A very busy day of holiday prep left us at 8:30 pm with our game still unplayed. We pondered several games, including Thurn and Taxis (my prediction), but in the end we went with something we all know well and enjoy... Settlers of Catan. The game really went on too late (especially for our 10 year old!) but we had so much fun playing.

December 22
Roll a D20 for start player - any crit and that player may choose the start player for the rest of the gaming session.

(Prediction: Great idea! I'm thinking we'd play Colt Express and not only would the highest roll go first but also would pick her character first.)


What We Played:
Holiday Fluxx (and more)



Tonight we had our "tribe" Christmas party - a time to get together with three other families who we are very close to. The kids all drew names to swap presents, but the adults did something a little different this year.

The adults (there were 6 of us participating, 2 adults couldn't make it) each brought a partially wrapped or wrapped-with-a-clue game or small pile of games. We set these out on a side table and then we had a Game-Off for Gifts.

We started by rolling the d20 to see who would go first, and then we headed into our first game, Holiday Fluxx. The winner of that game got to pick first from among the prizes, and then sat out while the other five adults played a different holiday-themed game to vie for second pick, and so on. Here's how it went:

Holiday Fluxx (6 players) - I won - picked a fully wrapped gift that had a plastic tiara on the outside in place of a bow - it turned out to be Monarch

Pass the Ugly Sweater
(5 players) - our friend R. won - chose one of the gifts my husband and I brought - Escape the Room and Fuse inside a cardboard box painted black and cut to look like a jail, sealed with a bike lock, a chain, and two padlocks, with a series of clues to use to open them. (I had a blast creating it!)

Letters to Santa (4 players) - our friend L. won (having her daughter sit in for part of the game so she could tend to dishes) - chose a copy of 7 Wonders Duel half wrapped in paper, half in tissue paper

12 Days (3 players) - our friend T. won - chose the other gift that my husband and I brought, a stack of three games (The Game of Things, Cubo, and Bring Your Own Book), wrapped in red ribbon, fake pine garland, and red bows

Then by default our friend M. made the choice between the two remaining games, both wrapped completely but with written clues, because he and his wife had brought both of those and he wanted my husband (the only other adult left) to have a particular one.

So, my husband got to open Pandemic: Contagion (written clue: Luke, I am your virus!), while M. took home 7 Wonders Duel (yes, two people chose to gift the same game!). Fortunately, M. didn't have Duel yet so he was glad to take it home. (written clue: I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who will win the duel?)

December 23
Play a game that you have not yet played in December.

(Prediction: Obviously tricky to predict, but so far, Imhotep was not on this list, so if we haven't played it yet, maybe we'll get to it on this date!)

What We Played: Smugglers



We hadn't played Imhotep yet in December - my prediction - but we did just get a copy of Smugglers from the good Amazon sales, and it comes with Intelligent Putty! How could we leave THAT in the box?

I am sure many of you get the "are there any games you DON'T own?" kinds of comments from non-gamers who hear how many games you have... but within our community, we know that it's a silly question. The sheer number of games out there is amazing, and I love that there are still so many games out there that surprise us with a mechanic we've just never seen before.

In Smugglers, you roll a die to see which of several tracks you'll be rolling balls of putty down - with a small, medium, or large fence hole at the bottom. Then, in just one flip of a timer, you must choose some amount of your Intelligent Putty to form around a small gem - making it smooth and round and small enough to fit through the hole but remembering there is a big advantage to having the largest ball that makes it through. Really a different skill set, and great family fun.

I can't believe there's only one day left in our Advent Challenge!

December 24
Wish your family a Merry Christmas and congrats on making it this far!

(Prediction: So sweet! I'm glad for the chance to make it through the whole challenge together. I'd love to play a co-op to keep the mood loving - maybe Forbidden Island or Forbidden Desert.)


What We Played:
Lanterns



My family was very excited to welcome my sister and her partner when they arrived this afternoon. We visited, had some dinner, and then had about an hour before it was time to leave for the movies. While my sister rested, my husband, son, and I got in a game of Lanterns. It was a very nice way to end the Advent Challenge!
