This was a decent month with 29 plays. Only a few new games of which I'm pretty sure we'll see a lot more of Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. Risk 2210 A.D. was the first time I ever played Risk and it was pretty cool. Not much else to say, really.

23 Plays, 15 unique games.

I finally got my hands on Innovation, and I had a bunch of games, just trying to understand whether there is a way to control it... fun experience, anyway. Among the games new to me, Kaivai is a longish yet really interesting logistic/economic game, while It Happens... is a subpar yet mildly interesting dice game, flawed by the fact that rolling high numbers is always better than rolling low numbers. Lots of dusting this month.

15. Board Game: Dungeon! [Average Rating:5.96 Overall Rank:2788]
Brute Man

22 plays, 16 unique.

Ah, now this month was more like it! Lots of games played this month, including a lot that was new to me. One, however, wasn't: I managed to acquire a copy of Dungeon in excellent condition; this was one of the first games I remembered playing as a kid. It was still fun, and, happily, my 8-year-old niece took to it like a fish to water.

Citadels is now apparently becoming a family standard. Of course, everyone let my sister get away with her typical strategy (bishop/merchant until 6 districts are down, then pull the architect to slap the last two districts down) and piled on me. I did, however, manage to pull a show-stopping "Law and Order"-worthy monologue figuring out who she took during a critical turn, and my thief stole her 8 gold (at the time, I had a 1 in 3 chance of being right - she was not happy, to say the least).

My wife liked Runebound, so I decided to pick up Talisman (and the Reaper expansion, thank you to the BGG forums recommending it). She loved it; two of the plays his month were on consecutive nights, and she made it a point to ask to play the third time.

We also enjoyed Candamir and Carcassone: The Discovery. I picked up this version since we have the Xbox 360 version of the original and played it to death.

I’m really impressed with Nemo’s War. It plays quickly but offers a lot of decisions. Nice atmosphere too.

And we had our monthly Last Night on Earth game night. Whereas last time the heroes managed to pull out a win, this time in "Rescue Mission," we had bad random building rolls, enabling the zombies (eventually almost all Grave Weapons) to be on top of both us and the townfolk within one turn. Two of the heroes never even got out of the safehouse for the entirety of the game. By the time we were able to get two heroes moving to the townsfolk’s location, the zombie force on that end was too much to hold back, ugh. But there will be a next time...

Games in bold were new to me:

3 Dungeon
3 Citadels
3 Talisman (Fourth Edition)
3 Talisman (Fourth Edition): The Reaper Expansion

2 Nemo's War
1 Candamir: The First Settlers
1 Carcassonne: The Discovery

1 Forbidden Island
1 Galaxy Trucker
1 Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game
1 Last Night On Earth: Growing Hunger
1 Last Night on Earth: Survival of the Fittest
1 Last Night on Earth: Hero Pack 1

The last two months of my wife's pregnancy and then life with a newborn has made finding time to play games difficult.

The bad news: My most-played game of April was Last Word (one play). It's a party game that requires players to think of words that start with a given letter. At least it was quick.

The good news: I got to play a game in April, so I am no longer 0-for-2011.

For two months running, my most played game is... Follow that Mouse, a.k.a. Mausefalle cry

But it's not all bad, I played 2 games of Macao, one of Navegador, and even two new games: Glen More and Water Lily (well, and the Lunch Box Game). And my son has discovered the Lego Hogwarts game (not bad) and Kayanak, so there may be less mouse in my life from now on whistle

This month I tied last month for my worst month in gaming in almost two years, at only 82 plays. But my game-loving girlfriend moves back to the state this month, and so among other awesomeness, I should get to play plenty more games soon!

Topping the list for the 12th time in 36 months of play logging is Malta!, at 9 plays. I had a nice game of it last night where everyone had terrible terrible cards that kept swapping around the table, until everyone had held onto that hot potato long enough.

A close second was Bananagrams at 8. One notable play: I called "peel" every single time in one of the games... except for the final call that actually determines who wins!

Dominion got third with 7. Awesome Bots - which just sadly got rejected by another publisher - had 6, and Setback and Blokus Duo just reached the nickel mark.

3 plays each: The Climbers, Incan Gold, Inklings, The Golems of Ymhet, ZÈRTZ

2 plays each: Battlestar Galactica, Big Boggle, Blue Moon City, Neuroshima Hex!, Shadow Hunters

1 play each (italicized items are new): Bohnanza, Castle, Castle Panic, La Città, Comuni, Dixit, Goldrausch, Haggis, Loaded Questions, Metropolys, Prolix, Puerto Rico, Succession: Intrigue in the Royal Court, Thurn and Taxis, Vegas Showdown, What's My Word?, Yspahan

10x Seeland - New to my/wife and I this month
4x Ascension: Deckbuilding Game + expansions/promos
2x Race for the Galaxy + expansions
1x Blue Moon City + expansions
1x Pandemic + on the Brink

We (my wife and I have played ascension with the Rat King, Vedah and Path Warden Promos enough that we are both looking forward to the expansion coming out soon. Also, RftG plus expansions is so much better than plain RftG sans expansions, I don't think I could go back to just the base game at this point.

Finally, Seeland is fantastic medium/light euro if you like tile placement and rondel mechanic games. Plus the production quality is top notch which makes the game a real pleasure to play. Right now my wife asks for this game more than any other (and that is saying something because she loves RftG and Ascension).


(Seeland Image credit to Henk.Rolleman)

I suppose my number of games this month was a bit low, but all the games we played are in my wife and I's personal top 10, so I suppose this is a good case of quality trumping quantity.
