Review – The City

This review actually has more twists and turns than a City Council meeting trying to issue a policy that will please all of its residents. I guess I should identify the game I’m talking about first, though. The City is a tableau-building card game… Continue Reading “Review – The City”

Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #230-221

It was a close one this week. Yes, I almost didn’t get this post done so that it would post this week at all. That would break my streak and we know that we can’t have that. But here it is! We’re three episodes… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #230-221”

Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #300-291

Wow, I’m lazy. Either that, or I’ve been in a bad mental space. You know, 2021 was supposed to be better, but so far it’s barely been marginally better and that’s only because 2020 sucked so much. I finished the Top 200 BGG games… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #300-291”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #120-111

‘Twas the day before the day before the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. (Certainly not this blogger.) The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Vital would… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #120-111”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121

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. But, you know, COVID and everything. Yeah, I do… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 60-51

With this post we’re half-way through the BGG Top 100 and I have to say that this has been a fun project for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. One thing going through this list does for me is… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 60-51”

App Review – Football Highlights 2052

(Edit: Peter has graciously corrected a couple of things. Rather than mention them here, I’ll note the edit in each spot. I apologize for the errors. Thanks, Peter!) Mike Fitzgerald knows card games. My first exposure to his work was the brilliant trick-taking game Diamonds,… Continue Reading “App Review – Football Highlights 2052”

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

It’s week 4 of my weekly look at the Boardgame Geek Top 100 games to see how many I’ve played and how many I even want to play. It’s a rather blah week, for a lot of reasons, but also just because there aren’t… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61”

New to Me – February 2020

We’re a little late with the “New to Me Games” post for February, but there is definitely a good reason. Last week was the Cult of the New to Me fundraising car wash! Unfortunately, the flyers I sent out and put up had the… Continue Reading “New to Me – February 2020”

New to Me – November 2019

It’s December! The last month of the year, the Christmas (or whatever end-of-year holiday you celebrate) season is upon us, but before we look forward to all of those presents sitting under the tree (or sitting under whatever your end-of-year holiday object is), it’s… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2019”
