"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.

Posters to the Geeklist are encouraged to write something about the games they brought out of the dust this month. Why did the game get dusty? Why did you decide to dust it off? How does the game compare to how you remembered it? Are you likely to play it more often in the future? These are the questions that we’re particularly interested in examining in the Out of the Dust Geeklist.

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

If you'd like to check out other fun monthly Geeklists, BaSL has a comprehensive list at his monthly Most Played Geeklist, the most recent iteration of which can be found as a link here: Your Most Played Game GeekLists - Announcement Thread

Time in the Dust: 2 Years, 2 Months - 3 Plays
Rating: 8.0
Total Plays: 18

Although Forbidden Desert is one of my favorite co-ops, its had a difficult time getting back to the table because my adult children don't favor co-ops. Recently, my wife and I were able to get three plays in on a recent vacation. Now that we are finally empty-nesters, I anticipate getting several plays in each year with my wife each year, at least until another co-op unseats it.



Bohnanza

Time in the Dust: 1 Years, 1 Month - 1 Play
Rating: 7.5
Total Plays: 9, (with dozens of games played before I started logging games)

One of the first modern board games I had ever purchased. Despite the number of logged plays, this is probably the game my family has played most. My wife and I played this with my daughter and her boy friend. Although game play is a bit dated, still always offers an enjoyable experience. Don't see this one coming out often; most likely it will get played when our children come home for the holidays.

Yeah. I wish I left this one in the dust for longer. It is barely above a roll-and-move for me.

I don't own the physical copy, but have played the app a lot. I wish I hand't passed when a game group member was selling down his collection. Wish there was an expansion with a few more pieces for variety.

We dusted this one off together with our 9-year old daughter. It was a nice experience. We should soon try it again.

12 plays in August for me of 9 different games = a very light month.

A cute family game and I am told the expansions add some good play options. It's always interesting to me to see a game get played 10+ years apart.

This one is hitting the table at the FLGS again and I am glad I got in a game. We had a three way tie for first and the 4th player was 3 points back. It seems like there is much to explore with the building tiles, but we have had someone rushing end game in both of my plays.

I like race games. I am NOT a big NASCAR fan, but this game does a great job of translating a race day into a board game - the yellow flags, the minor/major damage, the drafting options, etc.

The last time I played this I was luke warm on it, but I found a copy for 4.50 at a local game store, and decided to give it another try. I have to say its a really fun game. Its quick, and easy to teach, but leaves a-lot of room for choices. All in all definitely worth the price of admission.

Due to health issues (Chronic Lyme) I haven't been to many parties, so I've had no excuse to bring this out. Luckily I've been feeling a bit better, and had a very large group to play games with. We git in a 9 player game, and I really think this is where this game shines. Getting the full range of powers is where the fun is. I hope its not another year before I play this again.

Can be really luck dependent with the base game and no optional rules like the 1910 expansion.

Some player AP let this one run too long for this play. Usually it’s an excellent game!

For my Out of Dust games this month, I would like to thank my brother-in-law who brought those three games with him during his visit at my place!


Smash Up: Munchkin - 1 play

I like Smash Up! and my brother-in-law LOVES Munchkin. I have to say, this version is not bad at all! The game we played was very fun.


Glory to Rome - 1 play

Glory to Rome is, for me, the best example to not give up on a game after the first play. I HATED my first three games, but I read so much greatness about it that I came back for a fourth time over a year ago, and all clicked. This time, the game was great: tense, just a blast. A really good card game.


Jamaica - 1 play
First Published 2007
1 year, 4 months, 16 days
Current Rating -  7.5 

My first play of Jamaica a year ago was with 3 players. One of us was not engaged at all and was texting all the time. That my brother-in-law and I have fond memories of the first game is self-explenatory. This time, we were 6! An absolute blast, but you have to take the game for what it is and nothing more. So much fun!

Almost four years? Wauw, I am actually surprised! I thought I had played this - but I just checked up - and it seems correct!

It's a nice family game I remember playing a lot as a child - and now that I have it myself I hope to get to play it from time to time - hopefully a little more often than every 4th year.

One of my favourite Fluxx games; Pretty nice special cards that gives some fun laughs and some have-at-you moments. Still Monty Python Fluxx is my favourite Fluxx-game.

Not as cared for as Pirate Fluxx - but generally better than Fluxx in my opinion. It can be fun, but also it doesn't get me as the two mentioned above (Pirate and Monty Python).
