Over the last two years I have had various goals about getting games to the table. Last year it was my goal to play at least 100 unique games - something I enjoyed as it helped me break out some titles that had been gathering dust.

This year I am going to keep it simple and replicate last years attempt... 100 unique games over the course of the year, as a part of my hobby goals.

A fantastic game. Highly enjoyable and easy to get to the table. I thoroughly recommend this. One of the few games I have played where operating in teams significantly improves the experience.

Ah yes, Dystopian Wars, my old friend. I expect to play a significant amount of this over the course of 2017 - it is popular at my local game club, and I work as a developer on the line, so I am always happy when this hits the table.

It has been a long time since I last managed to get this to the table. An excellent game, and although quite dry thematically speaking, is nonetheless an enjoyable experience.

My son got a copy of Battleships for Christmas, and while I don't really enjoy the game per se, having the opportunity to play games with him is its own reward.

I was very excited to get this in the post, and have played the opening scenario twice now. The first time around was a white-wash, with the turtles getting absolutely thumped. The second play was much closer and ended in a turtle victory. Using more team-work and planning the second time around (and being more familiar with the rules) made all the difference. A wonderful game I am looking forward to playing more of!

There are a lot of dice games where one builds up their points over multiple rounds, few are as brilliantly executed as Ra: The Dice Game. This is a triumph, managing to be light, easy to play, engaging and very quick. Probably the best dice game I have played.

Wow. It has been a very long time since I attempted Arkham Horror. Starting at around 11pm without having read the rules in more than 5 years is not advised, but it was a very enjoyable experience nonetheless. I am hoping to play again soon...

The first time I played Age of War I despised it. This time, with the full compliment of players, I found it rather enjoyable. Very chaotic, but on the whole fun.

I haven't played this game since the mid 90s, but with the local club starting a campaign, how could I stay away. Relatively simple and sometimes chaotic mechanisms feel their age, but the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The mechanics create a fast flowing game with ups and downs that is really very good. Add to this the campaign system, which is realised in Necromunda and Mordheim more fully than in any (non-role-playing) game I have played since, and you have a classic.

Played through the first part of an adventure I'm writing/reworking for the Adventures in the Human Sphere supplement. It was good fun, though to be honest I wasn't really in the right frame of mind (in the middle of moving house). I was very pleased with how the players responded, and the conclusions they drew. I am looking forward to the next session immensely.
