Yeah I know I said I was going to blog more often and then April and May got away from me. Non-game life was busy. But hey I'm keeping on and will update both April and May...


One of my most pathetic play months in a long time. I tried to get my daughter into Star Realms and she beat me a couple of times, but was not interested in playing more. I also played San Juan for the first time in a while and still really enjoy that game.

My highlight is probably a few solo scenarios of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Wrath of the Righteous – Base Set. I do enjoy it but it would be hard to get it out with the kids around(esp my 6 yr old).

Only 11 total plays in April. Pathetic.


May wasn't a ton better than April. But I did take my daughter to the local game cafe named Spielbound. Highlight were

Patchwork -- we played this twice in a row, and then we got the app when we got home (we like the cardboard version a lot better)

Jenga -- I didn't know my daughter was a fan of Jenga but she is. I don't mind it...better than most dexterity games.

On another trip Spielbound with some friends we played Stone Age. I hadn't played it before but once I got the flow, I really liked it.

Only 20 total plays in May.

Number of plays for 2016 as of the end of May: 113
Plays per Day: 0.74 (oy)

10x10 as of the end of May:

Splendor 8
DC Comics Deck-Building Game 7
Hive 7
Ticket to Ride 7
Zulus on the Ramparts! 5

This is not good... but June is already looking up! But you have to wait for that update.
