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 – #210-201

Can it really be? Yes, this is the last post in the BGG Top 300 series, first begun back in February.

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”

What does that cryptic headline mean? Fantasy Flight Games announced yesterday that they are going to be reissuing 2000’s classic 2-5 player cooperative game with those little fellows, The Lord of the Rings.

With the previous post in this series doing so well, I guess I should do more of them and finish the job, eh? Last week’s post was a lot of fun and I got some great feedback. Thanks to those of you who stopped… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 90-81”

New to Me – April 2019

You know what? I rock. Yes, I do. Not only did I manage to get five new to me games played in April when I only was able to play eight in total, but two of those five games are more than ten years… Continue Reading “New to Me – April 2019”

Top Games Played in 2017 – Honourable Mentions

I managed to play 100 games in 2017. That’s a record for me, I think. Some were new to me (58 of them) while others were old favourites. Seven of my Top 10 games played were actually new to me, so they couldn’t have… Continue Reading “Top Games Played in 2017 – Honourable Mentions”
