An April of Games
My posting has not been exactly prolific over the last month, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been playing games. We actually did very well, with 32 plays, made up of 17 different games.
The most popular game in April was Love Letter, which we only acquired right at the end of March but managed to notch up 7 plays, displacing long-time favourite Sleeping Queens, which we played 5 times. There is certainly some novelty value helping here, but it’s interesting to note that, as it is a longer game, each play of Love Letter was on a different occasion, while we often play multiple games of Sleeping Queens in one sitting.
Other games that had more than one play were Antics (back after a long time languishing on the shelf), Giro Galoppo, and the Android version of Hey, That’s My Fish! (as always).
That leaves us with Sleeping Queens still the most played game of the year (11 plays), but Hey, That’s My Fish! and newcomer Love Letter close behind on 9 plays. Nothing else is particularly close at this point.
It’s interesting to note that we only played one new game in April (aside from a little prototype game that I had knocked up and we were trying), which was Sheepland. And a previous post reveals how well that went!
