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? Maybe, if I’m actually writing about them. Am I not… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #160-151”

Another week, another look at the BGG Top 100. I’m really loving the response to these posts. It really heartens me and makes me want to keep going (even though this is the first post since the last Top 100 post, which isn’t necessarily… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #40-31”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61

We’ve now entered the Top 10 Zone (it’s nowhere near as scary as the Friend Zone) That’s right, the Top 10 Games I’ve Played of All Time (capitalization is very important here). These are some amazing games, and if you follow me on Twitter… Continue Reading “Top 25 Games Played of All Time (10-6)”

New to Me – September 2018

After an August that was gangbusters, September slowed down on the “New to Me” front, but I still did enough that I was able to keep my role as cult leader. There was no attempted insurrection this month, though that could have been because… Continue Reading “New to Me – September 2018”

Hating on HATE
