  • Gaming Year 2021

    Covid-19. The pandemic got better, and I got the vaccine shots. I returned to the board game cafe meetings in June. Things have become much better. The number of games I played dropped significantly from 2020: from 753 to 481. In hours, I went from 339 to 266. The main reason for this is Nooa, […]

  • Altiplano and The City

    Altiplano and The City

    While my daughter is cheerleading, I’ve spent the time walking. Now that it’s cold and dark outside, walking isn’t as much fun, so I ended up spending the time in the local library, reading books or doing crossword puzzles. Then we realized my son could join me and we could spend the time playing games! […]

  • Gaming Year 2016

    2016 was a good year. Lots of games. I made a new record for the number of new games tried. My previous record was 93 new games in 2011, but this year I reached 133 new games. This is a record that’s unlikely to be broken any time soon. I don’t really want to. I’ve decided […]

  • Gaming Year 2014

    Another good year, can’t complaing. 2013 was good, and 2014 improved upon that. We bought a house this year and moved in, and that meant I got a bookshelf in my office I could use for games. With most of my games visible there, my son’s interest was piqued, and we ended up trying lots of different games. […]

  • Gaming Year 2013

    2013 was a very good year of board games, just like 2012 was before it. My kids and I have continued to play lots of games. My son is now seven and half, and can play quite complicated games. My daughter, soon five, is also a bright little gamer, and much less prone to throwing […]

  • Gaming Year 2012

    Another year gone. Good years keep on rolling – I rather enjoyed 2011, and have no complaints about 2012. My kids continued to be good playing company. My son is now six and half, and is ready for some proper family games. I started introducing him to card games, as well, and that worked well. […]

  • A small update

    Hi guys, it’s me again. I counted, and since the last update, I’ve played 112 games of over 50 titles. That’s pretty spiffy. I’ve also been rather busy, as you may have guessed. Time to start clearing out the backlog… The City is the cleanest and easiest game in the San Juan / Race for the […]

  • Automobile, Pantheon

    Last week saw two game sessions. Neat. First I visited Robert’s weekly game night on Wednesday for a game of Automobile. The guys said they took three hours to play the game the last time, but fortunately we ran through in two hours this time. Not a bad game. I played very conservatively, didn’t take […]

  • Games update

    Two weeks passed again. Time flies. Stuff I’ve played recently (as reported on the Google+ page, which is worth following if you ask me), rated using the Avoid, Indifferent, Suggest, Enthusiastic scale described by Brian: Dobble. Also known as Spot It!, this is a ridiculously entertaining card game. The round cards have bunch of icons […]
