For the 9th year in a row, I commented on the New To Me Games I played shortly after I played them for the first time. It is interesting for me to go back and see how I felt about a game right after playing it for the first time, while it is also interesting to see how many games I play. I almost published this list earlier this week, but yesterday played 5 brand new games to me taking me over 70 for the year! Without further ado, here they are. Thanks for reading!

Played this while in Louisville for a Warhammer: Invasion tournament. This game is really good and really enjoyable. I can see how there are people that enjoy it and I can see how it would be one that my wife would like. I'm looking forward to playing it again.

First play with 2 players. No good. Played more after that with 4+ players. That is a good and fun way to play. Turns are real quick.

This is a very chaotic and lucky game. Very simple and ingenious as well. Not one I'd spend that much money on though.

Like solitaire with another person. I'd like to try again with 4 players, but 2 players isn't so good.

This game is absolutely beautiful. I love the theme. I love art. The game seemed to be slightly luck filled. I still give it a good rating though. If I think I'd get this played, then I probably would buy it. If you don't like tug o' war games, then this isn't for you.

I've wanted to play this game for years. I like Amyitis (another by this designer) and I like pick up and deliver. The pieces are great and the game is about exactly what I thought it would be. Good, but not great. Your last couple turns can just be sit there though.

This is Agricola. Just a bit nicer and more public. I liked it a whole lot. Though I just can't see myself spending money, almost a $100 worth of money, to get Agricola version 1.2. I LOVE Agricola and this won't replace it.

Excellent little filler game. Plenty of bluffing and guessing what your opponent has. A good substitute for lower player counts instead of Mascarade.

Love the theme. Love the art. Hated the game. Four players took us nearly 2 hours to complete. This game should never take more than 30 minutes to get done. In the running for the worst game of the year.

This is a fun little auction game. I love the daring "pay more to see more" mechanic. My wife likes it more than High Society (I don't), so it is one I'm sure I'll be keeping for a long time.

A deep auction game. Really tough to know the value of things and what to bid, since half the auction isn't available until the next round. Thus it can be very punishing, but at the same time allows players to punish the leader and keep them in. A good game and one that I'd gladly play again.

This game is just so light that it is tough for me to like it. The art is cool. The game play with all the icons might be too much for the audience it would be best with. Non gamers.

Yet something else that took what Ascension did and improved it. The bases are what really make this game. Choosing to have to attack them instead of the player makes for some good decisions and some tactical play. I give this one two thumbs up.

Fiddly is what comes to mind with this game. It can be really fun I think, but you'll have to invest a lot of time to be really fun. I'm keeping it and I'll be playing it again for sure. Probably will fine a singe opponent though.

I liked it. This will stay in my collection. Not Dominion and not Ascension. A different style of deck building that has some player interaction each round. The insert really sucks though.

This is one I've wanted to try for about 4 years and finally got a chance. I like it quite a bit. A simple Euro game that by just having one rule (can't play the same cards twice in a row) makes each decision a tough and fun one.

I loved the theme for this game, but after one play, I've gotta say that I was disappointed in the fiddliness of it. It takes up a lot of table space with all the cards. I was also sorta sad at the price I paid for the game, considering the quality of the cards and the lack of many pieces.

The art in this game is what drew me in originally. I liked it the first play and can see liking it more the more I play the game. Good filler game.

It is exactly how I've heard it explained before "Roman Bingo". I'm not a huge fan of it and won't ask to play it again. Though I won't refuse to play it either.

Ii really liked it. I think the changes are very nice for the game and if I didn't already own the base game, I might buy this one. I really like that you can get people back.

I was surprised by this one. I really did enjoy this game. It is deep and has a whole lot of moving parts. Though it is a pure Euro game, so it probably won't be joining my collection currently, I'd be happy to trade for it or find it for a great price. Give this one a try.

Though I was surprised by this one, I still really am not sold on it. With 6 people it lasted too long. I could see with 3 where it would be at the sweet spot. I have a feeling my wife would really like this one.

This is longer than I'd hope it would be, but it is still a very fun game. A deeper longer game than Lifeboats, but one that longer and more gamerly. Rules were sometimes a bit off, but we just guessed and went with it.

Another game, along the lines of the Resistance, that , just makes me not want to play regular old Mafia ever again. I really liked the fast play, the no moderator, and the no elimination.
