Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #290-281

I such a timely guy, aren’t I? The first post in this series came out what seems like months ago (it was over a month ago, on February 15). What’s taken so long for the second post? Would you believe I fell asleep? All… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #290-281”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #110-101

Top 5 Games Played in 2020

After three weeks or so, it’s time for another entry in the BGG Top 200! We’re almost done, which you would think would mean that I could actually get these done in a timely manner.

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #150-141

And we’re back from the long hiatus that I seem to periodically take, like, every month or so. I really need to have a chat with these demons that seem to get inside my head all of the time and keep me from feeling… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #150-141”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #160-151

Another week, another “wow, I haven’t played many games” post. It’s almost like I’m failing as a “gamer”. Is that possible? Should I really feel bad that I haven’t played a bunch of games?
