"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

It almost lives up to Eric’s cutoff point of 5 years but more than 4 years is quite a lot for someone who’s been in the hobby for 6-7 years. I can now see that I was much too green when I played it the first time but this time I got the finer details much better and loved every minute of the game. I’m also very interested in Polish-Lithuanian history and know more about it than I did 4 years ago. This time I played against two Poles just after the 100th anniversary for the re-creation of Poland as a nation.

My preferences have moved away from worker placement dullness but I still have a couple WP games in my collection. Lancaster is one of them and my favourite so I was a bit surprised to see I had not played it for that long. This was a five player game with all the knight and squire bloodshed that entails. Great stuff.

All of my dusting was of glorious wargames @ BGG.Con.

Called it after 4 of the 5 maximum turns as it was getting late and was going to be rife with kingmaking opportunity. Fun game though.

Have played more of its siblings in the last two years. All are just about as fun.

Still liking the new improved edition. And this time we played the later 1532 scenario which I enjoy more with it in the thick of things immediately. Went from Turns 4 through 7.

France dominated four years but could never make the peace die roll. We had to then call it but French victory was pretty assured.

This game messes with my head. I previously couldn't balance the need to get points without decimating my income. Those darn red lines! It went better this time. I still lost but I was within 10 points.

Mission: Red Planet (Second Edition)-Last Played:2016-6-14
Not sure why this game has gotten no plays in two years. It solid family level game.

Arboretum-Last Played: 2017-08-11
I moved Labor Day weekend last year. This game "disappeared" around that time. I assumed it was lost in the move. I went through some boxes last month. Lo and behold it was there! This is a beautiful, and mean, game.

Arkadia-Last Played:2017-01-29
This was one of the first games I played with my now regular Sunday group. I love the 3-D aspect of this game.

La Granja: No Siesta-Last Played:2017-02-04
I just bought myself a copy! It does a decent job implementing its big brother game.

Dungeons & Dragons: Rock Paper Wizard-Last Played:2017-01-27
A silly, stupid party game. Its fun, but I suspect it would get old if I played it more.

Mexica-Last Played:2017-03-12
I got to play the new edition. It is a beautiful game. Want to play more of it.

Hamsterrolle-Last Played:2016-08-07
My most recent play fell flat with the group. But when I played previously with my husband, we really enjoyed it. Not sure what changed.

3 sind eine zu viel!-Last Played:2017-04-09
I'm really bad at this game. But I want to try again!

Sarkophag-Last Played:2017-04-12
A very enjoyable tricktaking game.

Trickerion: Legends of Illusion-Last Played:2018-11-04

Carcassonne-Last Played: Don't know. Before 2016.
My husband and our friends played so much of this when we first got together. I should bring this out more. I love the tile laying aspect.

Welcome to the Dungeon-Last Played:2017-02-14
A "meh" sort of fillerish game. I'd sell it but I suspect the money I'd get would not be worth the effort. I think I payed only payed $3 for it new.

Lots of undusting in November! I am even surprised on how much dust I have had been laying around!

Only three dusty games this month, as I was too busy playing all my new games purchases to drag many dusty ones off the shelves. Only one of them had a particularly high layer of dust, and that one is already on my trade list anyway!

Labyrinth: The Card Game – Dust Level 2 years 4 months

This has actually been on the trade list for several years now, but I do pull it out from time to time to play. This time I introduced it to two gamers in my games group. I think if it doesn’t trade soon I’ll give this one away.

Can't Stop – Dust Level 16 months

This would come out a lot more often if the rest of my family enjoyed it. As they don’t, I have to rely on a particular gamer in my games group to join me, with or without someone else, to get this to the table.

STORY CRAZE – Dust Level 15 months

This was my daughters favourite game for most of 2016, but her brothers eventually revolted, not being quite as fond of story writing as she was. This month she asked to play it again, and we played it twice, with one of the boys joining in, the other just listening to the stories.
