An August of Games
Oops, this post is coming a bit late this month, but here we go with the summary of our gaming in August.
So, over the month Miss B and I played 20 different games for a total of 29 plays. I thought things might be a bit skewed by the Golden Game Award, but the spread of games was pretty normal, I think.
We did pretty well with new games this time, getting to try out Alhambra, Escape: The Curse of the Temple, Make ‘n’ Break, Smash Up, and Super Munchkin, this last game belonging to guests who wanted to play it with us. So we’re really building up a bit of a backlog of games to report on.
Astoundingly, this was the second month in a row when we didn’t play Sleeping Queens. Our top game for the month was Love Letter, which we played three times, with several others getting two plays.
This now means that across the year so far, Love Letter (19 plays) is now clear of long time leader Sleeping Queens (17 plays), with Gubs (11 plays) and Hey That’s My Fish (10 plays) heading the rest of the field. It would be interesting to see what would happen if we had fewer games available, so focussed on just a handful, but that’s unlikely to happen given the collection we have. Ho hum.
