"Out of the Dust" is a term referring to games we play that we haven't played in awhile - typically a year or more. Sometimes games get a little dusty if we leave them on the shelf too long between plays - hence they are removed from "out of the dust" when we brush them off to play them again. Like other monthly Geeklists, the Out of the Dust Geeklist serves as a dedicated place for board gamers to post the games they played in the previous month - in this case, the dusty games we played again. The Out of the Dust Geeklist is open to anyone who logs their plays and has played a dusty game in the last month.

Andy's handy tool will analyze a user's logged plays for a range of inputted dates and quickly identify any eligible "out of the dust" games. This tool also formats the results in handy BGG code that can conveniently be copy and pasted into a Geeklist entry! http://www.grimwold.org.uk/bgg/tools/dustyPlaysBGG.php

If you want to be notified each month when the Out of the Dust monthly Geeklist goes live, please subscribe to the Out of the Dust Subscription Geeklist

Cranium Zooreka! - Dust Level: 4 years, 7 months, 2 days - The youngest is starting to learn some of the games we first exposed the oldest to, which brought up this title this month. It's just a roll and move, but it's a cute one and with a few adjustments, it doesn't outstay its welcome. Plus, it's always fun to build a zoo.

The Builders: Middle Ages - Dust Level: 4 years, 0 months, 14 days - I learned this one a little over four years ago and haven't given it much thought since then. But after upgrading to a premium membership on BGA, I gained access to The Builders and decided to give it try. I don't remember it being a satisfying engine builder, but it is. It goes on my wishlist for a physical copy.

Spot it! - Dust Level: 3 years, 7 months, 6 days - I got my father-in-law an MLB version of this for his birthday and we all had a great time playing through the entire deck several times. My wife usually does well at speed games and she dominated this one. My son was surprisingly competitive, though. I finished last on more than one occasion.

Viceroy - Dust Level: 1 year, 8 months, 19 days - Played this at a convention with some friends so they could try to get in on a play-to-win copy. It's a solid game and remains worthy of occasional play. But I remember when it seemed everyone was calling this the Splendor Killer. Ha ha, some people never learn to stop labeling random games that.

So, Zombicide ended and that group broke up, so time to find a new group and a new game. The first part wasn't too hard, there's a few guys over there. Suddenly, "We're going to play Pit. Sam's got Pit." Wait, what? I didn't even know Sam was part of this group. When was the last time I played Pit? *BGG search* 10 years. Okay. Turns out it was a deck that had originally belonged to Sam's grandfather, Copyright 1919. A 10-year dusty game with a 99-year-old deck. I'm not a fan of speed games, but it was reasonably fun as a random social activity. Still, it was starting to wear out its welcome when Sam won.

I don't own this game and had only played it once before. Decided then that I didn't mind playing it, but didn't care much for it either. Second play did not change this opinion, really. It is nice enough during the game and I liked the leaders and cities that were thrown in, but in the end someone wins and you haven't seen what he did for the whole game. It's maybe my fault, I probably should pay more attention to everyone at the table in this game, but the fact that everyone plays at the same time makes it hard enough to track what your immediate neighbours are doing. And, honestly, I didn't care enough anyway. I know this game is highly regarded and I'm not saying it's bad. I just don't like it, that's all meeple.

Lots of dusty games around the 16-18 month dust level this month, as that's the level of games I'm trying to dust off! I've managed to dust off quite a few successfully this month, so hopefully will continue that trend next month, as I am aware my pile of "dusty games" is larger than usual right now.

UNO - Dust Level 18 months

This has always been a family favourite, ever since I was a small child, and when the children were younger was a regular staple of family gaming, especially with grandparents, but as they've got older they've moved on to more advanced games. It still comes out from time to time at family gatherings though, as this time, when they want to play with grandparents and their younger cousins.

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game – Dust Level 18 months

Battlestar Galactica is unfortunately one of those games that is really hard to table, as not everyone knows the show, wants to play a longish game, or likes semi-cooperative games. Add that to the fact that you really need 5 players for it (although we did eventually table it with 4, as we could never find a 5th), and it is just not easy to get played. It was a fun play again, although the Cylons easily won. I love the suspicion and intrigue you get with this game, which no other game quite manages to deliver.

Telepaths – Dust Level 18 months

A party game, so with us no longer playing many party games, it hasn’t been tabling. I played it with the children instead, and it was quite amusing for something different with them. Also to see how children’s brains think differently from adults!

Turn the Tide – Dust Level 17 months

A neat little card game for 4 or 5, with the twist that everyone plays all the hands, and then you see who has done best overall. It was new to quite a few of the people this time – which is one of the reasons I find it hard to table.

Mamma Mia! – Dust Level 16 months

I love this little filler, but my husband hates it because of the slight memory element, and so I have to find an opportunity to play it in a group without him, which is made harder by it being an older game no-one knows!!

Metro – Dust Level 16 months

This one used to see much more play, both 2 player and multiplayer, but nowadays it pretty much only comes out as a 2 player game. It is the first time it’s hit this list though I think, usually getting a few plays a year.

Picture This? – Dust Level 16 months

As with all party style games, they tend to gather dust more than they used to. This is traditionally played in December at one of our Christmas gaming gatherings, but missed this year, so we played it at Easter instead!

Ticket to Ride – Dust Level 16 months

I enjoy Ticket to Ride, but it’s one of those games that doesn’t get suggested much, and tends to get forgotten about. Plus, as we own two editions, sometimes we play one rather than the other, so there are gaps in plays. A modern classic, but just not exciting enough to get regular play.

A day spent with friends-of-the-family left me marvelling that people still think games like Frustration and Top Trumps are the zenith of boardgaming. My son, brought up on a diet of HABA and Drei Magier games with agency for all ages, described them as "hard" which, given his limited vocabulary, to me meant that he struggled to do anything because he had almost no control what happened to him. Quite why people still play the boardgame equivalents of Pong beats me.

Trouble - 1 play
First Published 1965
About 37 years

After the pop-a-matic device, there is nothing to recommend this 'activity' as a pastime. But you know that already, you're on BGG.

Top Trumps - 1 play
First Published 1968
About 14 years

...aaand rinse/repeat. There was an occasion when - loving things Buffy-related - someone got me a BTVS Top Trumps as a Secret Santa gift. I was mildly excited to see how the various characters might match up, but... on a rating of 1-100, the attributes were almost uniformly 1-10 and 91-100: ZERO thought had gone into it and it went to the charity shop. Now, I can see a use for fact-based TT games: years, stats, that sort of thing; but as a game, it blows.

Connect Four - 1 play
First Published 1974
About 5 years

I played the giant garden version of this at a cousin's wedding a while back: this time it was the 'classic' plastic version. I don't mind Connect 4, but I don't tend to concentrate on it: I'd rather play Pentago, which is more engaging (and looks a lot nicer!).

The Captain Is Dead - 1 play
2 years, 7 months, 30 days
Current Rating -  7.0 

Having played the original edition of TCID a few times, I got to play the AEG version, which is an improvement in almost all aspects, apart from the rulebook, which seemed oddly arranged, badly headed, and vaguely working under the assumption you already know how to play (which I did, fortunately). It's a very well themed co-op, but the Admiral and Engineer seem to be mandatory picks for success; although, to make things harder you could leave them in the box. Still good fun: really should try Episodes 2 & 3 some time.

Fluch der Mumie - 1 play
1 year, 11 months, 24 days
Current Rating -  7 

Great 1 vs many family weight game with cool magnetic board. Played a two player game of this with my son and it was an even contest, especially once I remembered to polish the board so the mummy token could actually move.

Concept - 1 play
1 year, 6 months, 15 days
Current Rating -  8.5 

An SdJ nominated game which lies somewhere between gateway and party: the concept of Concept is a visual Word Slam (if that helps) and I like that, with just a few cubes and a question mark, you can describe Wheel of Fortune, Barbie, or even some lyric from an old song. Was very much enjoyed by the new-to-gaming crowd who I introduced it to.

Mangrovia - 1 play
1 year, 0 months, 20 days
Current Rating -  7.0 

Chalk up another win for the Amulet strategy, although the win came through spending them to build rather than hoarding them for end-game scoring: I'm aware this game has that slight balance issue, but it's otherwise a nice design and easy to learn. I made sure to emphasise the importance of player order in the end game - especially with five players - but one player ignored me and spent the last three turns (of nine) building nothing, having otherwise scored well. Pleasant next-step game.

Had my sister in law visit last month and dragged some of her old favourites (that we all enjoy) off the shelf.

A couple of good games of Pandemic saw us win easily once and then experience a heartbreaker of a close loss.

A quick play of Notre Dame also went over well as every time I play it I find myself reminded of what a neat little game it is.

Current Rating -  7.2 

Our family has played many a game of Kingsburg since getting into the hobby, but it had run its course and I had traded it away for something new for us a year or so ago. My oldest daughter never really let me forget it. So when we were at Lexicon, standing in the game library and she saw Kingsburg it was an obvious choice to play. She got to introduce her room mate to one of her favorites. We got some of the scoring, etc. mixed up since it had been a while but it was still fun, for her.

I first played America at the inaugural CinCityCon, the same people who put on Lexicon. I started the game a non-trivia person and left the table feeling like if there was a trivia game that would be enjoyable for me, this is it. My daughter is a huge trivia fan and very good at it. We played two games at Lexicon and had a battle of the minds in and had a lot of fun. I'd still like to get this game one of these days.



Guildhall - 2 plays

Guildhall is our most played game with plays North of 100+. There was a long stretch where it seemed this was always on our table. It has been sporadic over the past couple of years but was the game of choice as April came to a close. This continues to be a fun game and a welcomed sight at our table.

meeple Keep playing...

Holy crap...this is one of my favorite games of all time, and I haven't played it in 2 years! I think I was trying to not play it before Oblivaeon was released, but I couldn't resist. I actually played it twice 1 day after the other. We even managed to win both times (Once was Vengeance style, and once was regular). This made me remember why this is one of my favorite games.

I can't get the tool to work, so will do this manually.

Dimension 3 plays, last play was Jan., 2017. This should come out more often, it's always a frantic, fun experience.

Vast: The Crystal Caverns 2 plays, last play was March, 2017. Another that I'd like to play more (especially since the rules are fresh) and maybe even break open the expansion....

Take That and Twenty One both played once and first in April, 2017 (a week earlier).

Scythe 1 play, last played July, 2017. And the play reminded me that I don't like king-making (even inadvertently) games.

And the most dusty Feudality 1 play, last play January, 2014. This is a fun dicefest with cute art that I'd like to play more, but it never seems to get suggested, even though it goes up to six players.

A few more made it from the basement, but ultimately weren't selected.

Too much time. Luckly a new edition is coming.


Gloom - 1 play
First Published 2005

I enjoy this one more than the amount I can play, since many of my group can't handle storytelling.


Drillit! A Fuga da Montanha de Cristal - 2 plays

A brazilian title that isn't bad, though isn't great either.


Macao - 1 play

One of the best Feld games.

Weird.

This TtR version is not in my own collection, which is why I don't play it often. I have played USA and some of the map packs (1. Asia and 4. Netherlands) in the past twelve months. It remains one of my favourite game systems.


Catan: Seafarers - 1 play
First Published 1997
3 years, 4 months, 10 days
Current Rating -  7 

I tend to prefer Catan without expansions, but my kids love the Seafarers. Anyway, Catan has become a once-a-year game for us, so it was over three years since we last played with Seafarers (and 16 months since the previous base game play).


Quantum - 1 play
First Published 2013
2 years, 0 months, 19 days
Current Rating -  6 

When I played this, I thought it was my first play, that's how big an impression it had made on me the previous time! Well, it didn't do much for me the second time either. It's not bad, but totally forgettable.


Dream Factory - 1 play
First Published 2000
1 year, 6 months, 26 days
Current Rating -  7 

Another game not from my own collection, but this is one I'm always happy to play.


Agricola - 1 play
First Published 2007
1 year, 1 month, 29 days
Current Rating -  8 

I like Agricola, but not as much as I like many other games. I played it a lot some years ago, but the Agricola-fans in my gaming group have all left town, so it gets little play these days. My kids showed an interest in it (they've both played Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small several times) and that's why it was pulled off the shelf. A fine game.


Stone Age - 1 play
First Published 2008
1 year, 0 months, 6 days
Current Rating -  9 

This was played on request of my significant other. She loves Stone Age, and so do I, so why does it show up on a list like this? There's just too many great games I guess.

I rather like this realtime strategy game. I think it works really well and allows for different strategies and tactics during play.

Probably should play more Dominion...

Since we've been focusing on the 10x10 challenge, most of our games continue to gather dust. We did manage one play of Panamax on game night, which is rare since our game nights usually have 5 players.

Race for the Galaxy is my favorite game, so I can't believe I let one year pass without playing it. Part of it is due to the fact that my wife did not enjoy it last time we tried. But since then she has been learning to play some deckbuilders Valley of the Kings, so I thought it was time to try again. And indeed this time it worked like a charm, and I hope we'll get regular plays from this great game from now on!

This is a very random game that left my 9 year old totally cold. So this time I tried it with my 4 year old, who likes to play everything, even though he functionally does not understand the game. So I think I'll let this gather dust for one more year before trying again...
