I know we were not the only group playing games instead of going to noisy parties.

My hubby & I went to a friend's house. There were 8 of us on 2 tables.

One table played Splendor and Queendomino.

My table played Dragonwood and Garden Dice with Garden Dice: The Card Expansion.

After midnight, the remaining 4 of us played Sneaks & Snitches.

My friend's teenage grandson had gotten Dragonhold for Christmas, so I was excited to play it here so I will know how to play later with them. I kept trying to get cards and missing by one pip. Came in a low last place.

The host owns Garden Dice with the cards and we have played it before. Always play with the cards! I whopped the other three big time, 110 points. The host came in 2nd but not close to me at all. Oh darn.

Four of us played Sneaks & Snitches. The rules were in Spanish and it took us a while to figure out the game again. I couldn't get cubes at all and was a dismal last on this.

Soooooo, what did you play this year for New Year's Eve?

We hosted a new-year's eve party for friends this year, and had PitchCar with a few expansions thrown in set up. In the end we played one game (seven players), and a group spent most of the night playing Cards Against Humanity.

We played Shadows over Camelot: Merlin's Company with 7 players. All had played several ties prior. Took a long time before the 12th siege engine ended the game. A rare win for a unidentified traitor.

New Years Day we played Twilight Imperium 4. With 6 of us we finished in ~6 hours if you ignore the rules explanation beforehand that went too long...
At my request, everyone "watched" a rules video in the days leading up to it so we could skip an extensive teach... but some watched it better than others. But I digress.

The game itself was

and I can't imagine a better start to a year.

My friend was all excited to play Firefly: The Game for the longest time. She was like "Let's play the long scenario!". I just held my breath hoping she wouldn't back down. So hubby and I get the kid into bed, and BFF is too tired to play Firefly. shake

She said she would TRY to play but by the time we deliberated it was late and setup alone on that game takes a while, so I just set up The Quest for El Dorado instead and taught her how to play, then we played a couple hands of poker to pass the time til midnight. It was still a fun night, just not what we had planned.

Two buddies stayed at mine and my other half’s house from the 30th to the 1st, and we played through the entire campaign of Pandemic Legacy Season 2! We’ve made a habit of gaming together every NYE but this year was particularly good fun - a great way to start off 2018.

My new years also had a grand plan and ended up with something a little less. My wife and I were going to do twilight struggle but we were just too sick to think that hard. We ended up with carcassonne, biblos, and cards. A great night just not epic.

I have never played that. In fact, all I knew was TI3 from Sam Healy on Dice Tower loving it.

My FLGS rents games for 3 days or 1 week. I will have to see if I can try this one out!

NYE my roommates intended to play Gloomhaven all night with their best friends, but said friends had a fluplague so they couldn't make it. Instead we all had two other friends over, and because I didn't want to move from the couch, we fired up my Steam Link and played some Quiplash, Fibbage, and Bidiots on the TV/our mobile phones.

Then on NYD I was invited to play a game of TI 4th ed by a friend who got it for Christmas, but wasn't really feeling up to 8+ hours of a single game that day. Or leaving the house. Or gaming with strangers. I was glad I skipped out - it ended up taking them 11 hours. I did manage to get my roommates to play a game of Monuments: Wonders of Antiquity with me in the evening, which was one of the games I picked up cheap at Gen Con and finally opened on Saturday.
