What can I say? An absolutely dreadful month (board game wise). This is in fact my lowest month ever (since I started logging my plays). A big culprit here is Diablo 3 which has demanded a considerable amount of my time (when it has worked anyway).

Still, I got to play Claustrophobia 4 times which was great.

Alright, so this is the least I've gamed in a month in 3 years, play count wise (May 2009, before my fiancee lived in the same state as me, was the last time I was under 70 plays). However, I did manage to play at least one game every day except one (check out my calendar), second only to July 2010 where I played at least one game every single day that month. My top game this month is a trivia game I invented a week or so ago.

I know Orchard is the most played one but I just don't want to add my son's favorite game each month (he's 3 years & 9 months old). On the other hand, it was the first time we played with his younger sister as well...

4x Orchard
3x Vegas thumbsup Lighter than Pickomino, sure to upset many Alea fans, but it's fun in a 6 nimmt!-way
3x Takenoko thumbsup fine as a family gateway, although a bit fiddly for that, but it's undeniably cute
2x Fauna thumbsupthumbsup Friedemann Friese proves trivia games can be really fun.
2x High Society thumbsup A nice auction filler.

Once again, Crokinole was the most played. I think sometimes, perhaps I should put something else up? But, that just wouldn't be right.

Yes, that is a pic of my board (and beer).

This past month, we played a bunch as we were getting ready for the Geekway tornument. Made it to the second round this year, too!

I played 62 games this month with 27 unique games and eight new to me. Geekway accounts for a lot of the new-to-me games. Quick notes will go with.

Below is the list. New to me is listed in red.

Crokinole - 22

Slappy Hands - 9 - All played at Geekway. This is a game I co-designed and went over quite well in it's second year down there. Video is now up on the game page and really, you should check it out.

Sheepshead - 3

Big Points - 2 - a truly outstanding game for two or three people.

Dominion - 2

Lexio - 2

Score Four - 2

Alea Iacta Est - 1

Aton - 1 - I pulled out the win by covering all of the yellow spaces. Something my Aton partner and I haven't done until then. Made for an awesome win.

Belfort - 1

Duell - 1

Fifth Avenue - 1 - One of my favorite Alea games. Played my three favorites this past month.

A Fistful of Penguins - 1 - meh.

Hab & Gut - 1 - solid, second best new game I played.

Hornet - 1

Last Will - 1

Lords of Waterdeep - 1 - best new game I had played, just edging out Hab.

Louis XIV - 1

Macao - 1 - Ahhh, good ol' Alea

Poseidon's Kingdom - 1

Power Grid - 1

Puerto Rico - 1 - and to complete the trifecta of my favorite Alea games. Quickest three player game I played. 35 minutes, from opening the box to cleanup. Tight game, too.

Some'R'Set - 1

Tammany Hall - 1

Urban Sprawl - 1

Was sticht? - 1 - to close Geekway with

Zombie Ninja Pirates - 1

May was a lighter month for gaming - mostly gateway games that we played with people who are not regular gamers. Meanwhile I was very busy on Yucata.de this month, trying out new things and receiving challenges left and right.

My game at the top is 10 Days in Africa, which has turned out to be a real hit. I think it's just a touch better than Americas, which is why we're playing it more often. I wonder if it's time for a revised edition with Southern Sudan as it's own country?

Here were my face-to-face totals for the month. Bold = new to me.

10 Days in Africa 3
Dominion 2
Dominion: Prosperity 2
Nuts! 2
10 Days in the Americas 1

37. Board Game: WWE Raw Deal [Average Rating:6.78 Overall Rank:3754]
Rauli Kettunen
Finland
Oulu
flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb
Tallying up, comes to 142 plays of 11 different games. No new games cool . Total could've been higher if I hadn't gone all slacker during the last week blush .

WWE Raw Deal 46
Revolver: The Wild West Gunfighting Game 31
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game 20
Commands & Colors: Napoleonics 10
Conan Collectible Card Game 6
Blood Bowl (Third Edition) 5
Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game 5
Lords of Waterdeep 5
Mansions of Madness 5
Thunderstone 5
Price of Freedom 4

Nothing changes at the top, cards, cards and more cards involved. Can't see yet a time when the top-2 would get overthrown, just not enough pull from other games, certainly not in the amount of plays these two get each month.

LotR probably gets another 20 plays in June, two more quests still to be even bought, but I'll get on that next week. C&C:N will be gone from the list, having now played all 15 scenarios twice each, it's "completed." Also decided against getting the Spanish expansion, not sure what'll fill this gap. Maybe Star Wars: Queen's Gambit, C&C games have different sections, SWQG offers different battlefields but the card use if similar. And Queen's Gambit has been collecting dust long enough.

Conan and Blood Bowl go nicely together, if for no other reason than sheer brutality cool . Would be nice to get a few more cards for Conan and one more team for Blood Bowl, but both will hold their play total in June.

Still continuing to hit LNoE, Walking Dead season 2 is starting soon here, so no lack of zombie inspiration to be found. Heroes finally got back to winning ways as well. On the other end of the scale, Lords of Waterdeep delivers a solid game in around 45 minutes or less (2-p). Probably wouldn't care all that much for it if it took say, 90 minutes, but in under an hour, there is enough to do.

Finally bought Forbidden Alchemy for MoM, hence its comeback. Waiting on the latest POD to arrive as well. In the same order will be the Gears of War POD, so GoW is coming back in June. Thunderstone might take longer than Lords of Waterdeep (on average, even if the last game was over in about 25 min), but past 100 plays and still going strong. Probably stick to the original game and its expansions, no need for the Advance.

Lastly there is Price of Freedom, which hit 50 plays total, but will be a no-show for a few months. Hitting a full length game for 13 months straight, even if only a few times a month, there comes a time when you need a breather. Don't know where I'll get my ACW-fix (replay BC150?) or my wargame-fix (digging out Horus Heresy has been on the cards).

May was my slowest gaming month in about 3 years, as work and life in general got busier. This month saw me with 33 face-to-face plays of 24 distinct games, only 1 of which was new to me (listed in bold below).

I've been having a lot more fun with the 10 Days series of games recently - there's more to winning these games than may at first meet the eye. After this month, all 5 of the 10 Days games have made it to my all-time dimes list.

Heroclix is my most played game in May, no doubt in part to playing with two different groups of friends and playing in a local tournament.

8 x Heroclix
3 x Formula Motor Racing
2 x Drakon
1 x Star Trek: Fleet Captains
1 x Star Wars Miniatures (falling out of favour a bit now)
1 x Survive: Escape from Atlantis
1 x Warhammer 40K (taking a bit of a break)

Most of my plays this month were with my wife, granddaughter and niece

Sequence 79 - This got a lot of plays. Most of the plays were with my wife. The weather was good so we could sit on the deck, have a snack and a drink. We haven't been able to use the deck much the last couple of years. We always play for 3 sequences, I think it makes the game more interesting.

If internet play counts, it would far and away be this one - in fact I think I may have a bit of an addiction.

I had (and in fact have) multiple games going at once so I didn't log every one, but I'm sure it was at least in the 20's somewhere, which is huge for me.

I'm happy to say that TTR wasn't in the top spot this month. Instead, it's Stone Age! Due to travels this month, it was a pretty light gaming month.

Stone Age: 2
Ticket to Ride: 2
The aMAZEing Labyrinth: 1
Forbidden Island: 1
The Kids of Carcassone: 1

If I logged all the plays of Blockhead I played with my little guy, then that would be #1.

I think June will be a better month, as I'm looking forward to my new purchases that will be coming this month: Last Will, Village and Africana. Hopefully they come in!

A few factors led to the past month being a great gaming month. I hosted my first game night, attended another and my wife and her friend, who due to some circumstances is staying with us temporarily, being totally addicted to Dominion.

Dominion x 34 best game, where i parlayed some villages, masquerade and torturers into a complete submission hold

No Thanks! x 16 I am a substitute teacher, and often teachers don't give enough work or have "games" on the schedule because they are too lazy to give me something to do, so I teach this to kids. also I used this for some warm-ups at my game night

Pit x5 really this was probably one real game, but we had a floating membership in 5 hands, so I just treated it like individual games. It was something familiar at game night that a newbie wanted to play

Coloretto x3 introduced this to some family on memorial day

Finito x3 filler at game night

The Settlers of Catan x2 Mother's day, my bro-in-laws favorite game.

Alien Frontiers x1 been wanting to play this again for months, finally had a chance

Eminent Domain x1 I really like this game

For Sale x1 I enjoy it, and was trying to find a game for a friend who I've been trying to game with me. He played Betrayal of House on the Hill a long time ago, and hated, I've invited him a few times, I finally got him to come to a game night after I promised him I had games he'd like better, he actually asked to borrow this one over memorial day weekend, he never came to get it, but I think I succeeded

Fresco x1 I played this a while ago, both my wife and I liked it, so I bought it, only one play this month, but I look forward to playing it a lot when my wife gets enough Dominion that she doesn't want to play it constantly.

Old Maid x1 something do with a 7 year old...let's just move on.

San Juan x1 I like this ok, my wife is so-so on it, but I was able to get it played at game night. I think if I didn't have Dominion this would get played much more.

Shadows over Camelot x1 Introduced to this at game night. not something that lights my fire, but I had the chance to be the traitor and took advantage of my newbieness to derail the game. I'd play it again if asked, but I won't be buying it.

Take it Easy! x1 Filler/parting shot at gaming night, did horrible due to an ill advised gamble trying to keep my suns/moons going. But I like puzzle games occasionally.

Wizard x1 Growing up we played a very similar game just using Rook cards, at my game night someone brought it and said it was their favorite game so being the gracious host I am I enjoyed beating them at their own game.


Hey, that's my fish! x1 played this with my 7 year old. I don't know why I don't play this more with him, he likes it, I like it...
