A June of Games
So we played nearly as many games in June as we did in May; a total of 42 plays of 20 different games.
Top games this month have been the newcomer Gubs (8 plays!), followed by Castle Keep (5 plays) and Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule (4 plays), neither of which have had that much play this year — though the latter has been helped by the welcome arrival of the lush, properly printed version we Kickstarted. Castle Keep’s figures are mainly boosted by one afternoon where we played four games in a row with Miss B showing great enthusiasm for construction of fortifications. Love Letter and Sleeping Queens also saw multiple plays, as did a few other games.
Last month I mused about there needing to be something really compelling coming along to challenge Sleeping Queens and Love Letter for the year’s top game, and it looks like Gubs may well fit that category. We’ll just have to see how things pan out.
So, the year’s race to be the most played game still has Sleeping Queens in the lead with 17 plays, Love Letter snapping on its heels with 14 plays, Hey, That’s My Fish! (digital) on 9, and Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule and Gubs each on 8 plays.
