Gaming in October
As I commented in the last post, we have been playing quite a few dice games lately. In October, 10 of the games we played involved dice in some form, and of those, 5 of them had dice as the central feature, rather than just using them for movement or conflict resolution; I’m including Plyt in this as the game is entirely rolling dice and then multiplying the numbers.
So, over the month we player 24 games, spread across 17 different titles, so another good month by the standards of this year. Several games got played more than once: Appletters, Dino Hunt Dice, and Hobbit Tales all played twice, and Coup and Dragon Slayer played three times each. That’s also some write-ups I owe you, and hopefully I’ll get some more done over the next few weeks.
For the year overall, we still have no clear leader, with Plyt having now caught up with Love Letter on eight plays, Apples to Apples just behind on seven, Dobble on six, and Chess, Dungeon Roll and Gubs with a respectable five plays a piece. Right now, we could even gain a brand new entry that could storm through and steal the crown by the end of the year…
