Gaming in November
Our play over the last month has dropped down a little, but we still did pretty well, with 18 plays of 12 distinct games. The multiple plays this time came from one of Miss B’s current favourite games, Coup, with four plays, plus Dobble (we’ve been playing the “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” rules lately), Family Fluxx, and the long-ignored Sleeping Queens, each with two plays.
So, for the year we still have no clear leader, though Coup has suddenly moved from absolutely nowhere to being in real contention. Dobble, Love Letter and Plyt have each had eight plays this year, and Apples to Apples and Coup have had seven.
Anything could happen now. At the current rate, Coup could easily take the 2014 crown by being one of the few short games that has really caught Miss B’s imagination this year. I would be very surprised if we didn’t get a couple of games of Apples to Apples in over the holidays, which probably won’t be enough to come in at the front, but given that it is a game that only really gets played when there are four or more people around and that doesn’t happen too often, it is impressive that it has scored so well. Plyt is almost certain to have at least one more play, and the others, well, who knows?
