Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #280 – 271

Wow, it’s been over a month since the last edition of the Top 300 boardgames on Boardgame Geek. I think that’s a bad sign. Is it a bad sign? Is it because of the funk I’ve been in over the last month or so?… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #280 – 271”

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 – #140 – 131

Welcome to this week’s edition of BGG’s Top 200 games! The series where I look at those games in the BGG rankings from #200-101, ten games at a time. Two weeks in a row? That’s gotta be a record. Things are actually looking pretty… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #140 – 131”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21

It’s that time of week again. The sun’s out (kind of, though it’s supposed to rain by the time this actually posts) and we’re into Summer. Yet the temperature’s in the 60s in Vancouver and I’m really enjoying it. I don’t need it to… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21”

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”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 80-71

It’s week 3 of our weekly look through the Boardgame Geek Top 100 to see what games I’ve played and which ones I may be interested in playing. Last week I got educated about Dominion, maybe even enough to try it again some day. What… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 80-71”

New to Me – January 2020 (Part 2)

Whew! I’m finally awake again after finishing last week’s Part 1 of my “New to Me Games – January” post. That really took a lot out of me. It’s been a week and I’m just now recovering! Excuse me while I hop on my… Continue Reading “New to Me – January 2020 (Part 2)”

Review – Le Havre : Inland Port

I’ve never done well with a number of Uwe Rosenberg’s “big” games (A Feast for Odin, Agricola, Caverna, etc), which I’m sure is my problem and not his. I can see the good design in them, but they’re just not for me (though I… Continue Reading “Review – Le Havre : Inland Port”

New to Me – May 2019

It’s hard to believe we’re almost half-way done with 2019 already. Where does the time go? I know where my time didn’t go last month: playing new to me games. I only have three games to tell you about! However, as the Cult of… Continue Reading “New to Me – May 2019”

App Review – Patchwork

Patchwork is a game of grid-management, putting puzzle pieces into your grid in a much more efficient way than your opponent. That’s basically what it breaks down to. Since I am not the most spatially aware person around (I once tried to push a… Continue Reading “App Review – Patchwork”
