Thanks for the show.

Wettlauf/Race/Quest nach/to El Dorado managed 25 plays this year and would be my favorite I guess.

Taj Mahal is probably my favorite Knizia game - love it more each time I play it.

I see the Clank! thing - you can get totally shut out and doomed by being unlucky with the market. Clank! In! Space! appears to be more forgiving there.

Other 2017 gaming highlights that I didn't have time to mention:

Game Night's The Pursuit of Happiness episode - "Live an alternate life" games are a genre I've always enjoyed, probably stemming from playing Life as a kid, but this one feels the most complete.

An epic 6-hour New Angeles game - some loved it, some hated it, it was tense and tough to control and frustrating and difficult to master, yet we talked about for a long time afterwards, and some were immediately ready to try again. Possible quote of the game - "Huh, it's almost as if there are both benefits and drawbacks to deploying gigantic armored mechanized police."

In line with my "I like plain old [deckbuilding/dice drafting/tile laying/etc.] but I want a little more game to go along with it" desires, the blind hands of Hanabi are a thing that could evolve in some very interesting ways - I enjoyed Beyond Baker Street and it's on my "buy this soon" list.

Hanamikoji - Brilliant 2-player headgame duel. Small box, easy to always have around. Looking forward to trying Shadows in Kyoto, which is not really related but set in the same universe.

And I finally got to try Lacerda's The Gallerist - looking forward to getting Lisboa on the table.

Happy 2018 gaming, everyone!

Thank you for sharing this fun and interesting discussion - I enjoyed it! Great to listen to the different opinions.

Codenames Duet is the current favorite for my wife and me. I encourage everyone (Dave included!) to try the campaign. The various cities with the differing mission parameters encourage different strategies. For example, fewer timer tokens with more acceptable mistakes encourage broader clues and even "zero" clues that isolate the assassins (guessing wrong is better than curtailing your guessing). Cities with fewer acceptable mistakes encourage precise clues (getting to DC is hard, as it should be!). Love it!

I COMPLETELY agree with Dave about playing a game over and over. I wish more gamers felt the same.

The Quest for El Dorado is a hit for me this year. It's so perfect with my family. From the moment I saw Erik Martin's report about it, to watching you play it, I knew it was a winner.

Thank you for the GameNight!s. I enjoy watching you play the games AND then discuss the games. Excellent stuff.
