What was on the table in January?

February 10, 2016

January was a better month for gaming with Miss B than I was expecting. We had 22 plays of 15 different titles. This was helped by two days: one where we met up with some friends in Oxford for an afternoon of gaming at Thirsty Meeples, and the other when we visited some other friends in Bristol.


We didn’t play Cash ‘n Guns, but Miss B had a lot of fun putting together this diorama.

Our multi-plays were dominated by new arrival Wetland with five plays. This was actually thrown in as a dead-stock freebie with a recent delivery of stuff and, though it is right up Miss B’s alley (a quick abstract game with frogs), there are certain problems with it. Maybe we’ll do a full post on this sometime — or it may never get played again, difficult to say!

We also had three plays of the ancient take-stuff-from-the-piles game, Nimm, and two of yet another abstract, Cambio.

I was particularly pleased to get a play of Between Two Cities with Miss B (plus two more people), as it is fast becoming a favourite of mine, being a very scalable super-filler that just works nicely and generally leaves people smiling.

We’re not doing a 10×10 challenge this year, but it’ll be interesting to see if we do get to hit 10 games 10 times anyway.  We’ll see how it goes…

      Great to see you too! Hopefully we can do something similar again some time. 🙂

    I recently traded away Cash ‘n Guns because we just didn’t get it to the table. We have a serious issue with guns in this country (namely that they kill a lot of people) so it really upsets my partner. She hates anyone pointing anything resembling a gun at each other. It took forever to get a nerf gun in the house. Glad you got some good gaming in.

      Hey Billy, great to hear from you!

      I’m lucky to live in a country with low levels of gun violence, but even so I feel that the first time I bring CnG to a group I should discuss the theme and ensure that everyone is OK with it. Of course even then, there might be someone not wanting to speak out, so sensitivity is definitely called for.
