New to Me – June 2022

June 2022 was a weird month. For the most part, things are going ok, especially compared to last year. But there are so many bad things going on the world that it’s still really stressful. Plus, I’m on vacation the entire month of July… Continue Reading “New to Me – June 2022”

New to Me – February 2022

February is the shortest month of the year, but I still managed to not only get a bunch of new to me games in, but they were all good! I mean, none of them were 1960: The Making of a President good (well, maybe… Continue Reading “New to Me – February 2022”

New to Me – December 2021

It’s the end of the year 2021 (or it was when I played these games, anyway). Having been able to go to game days again since August 2021, it was nice to have a bunch of new to me games to play each month!… Continue Reading “New to Me – December 2021”

New To Me – September 2021

Another month and another “New to Me” games post. This is the 50th! It feels so good to finally be playing some new games. I’m trying to play some of the many games I bought during the worst of the pandemic (so this is… Continue Reading “New To Me – September 2021”

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 200 – Play or Played – 180-171

This post has been a long time coming. Sorry about that. Life has a way of getting away from you sometimes, doesn’t it? Especially in these chaotic times. I swear that 2020 has been…well, let’s say “challenging.” However, I have made promises to people… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – 180-171”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #190-181

When I began this series about the Boardgame Geek rankings and talking about the games in them, I didn’t think it would be this difficult. The Top 100 was pretty static. So when I spent the first part of the week putting all of… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #190-181”
