New to Me – May 2022

After a month of COVID and other things that kept me from playing any new to me games in April (which was mitigated by the fact that I didn’t post the March article until April was almost over), May was a time to make… Continue Reading “New to Me – May 2022”

New to Me – October 2021

New to Me – March 2021

New to Me – February 2021

It’s now March and the Cult of the New to Me is getting restless. We’re now close to a year since lockdowns and social distancing became a thing rather than some abstract concept. This past weekend, a year ago, I was coming home from… Continue Reading “New to Me – February 2021”

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.)
