What was on the table in March?
March’s gaming was dominated by the big gaming weekend I wrote about last week, where Miss B and I got to play loads of games, not all together. We also got a little more play in over the Easter weekend, when we were visited by assorted members of S’s family, some of whom joined us for a play or two.
The headline numbers are that we had an impressive 31 plays, so an average of one play of something per day, and these plays were of 18 distinct titles.
We had multiple plays of quite a few games: 6, BraveRats and Spyfall had three plays each, and Codenames, Love Letter, Odin’s Ravens, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Pick Up Sticks, Push It, and Tem-Purr-A with two plays a piece. Of these, Odin’s Ravens was new to us, and was a gift that I am extremely happy with, and Tem-Purr-A was a game owned by Miss B’s aunt and uncle, which turned out to be a lot of fun, and I may have to get a copy of for myself.
One particular play I was really happy with was when Miss B came down to see me and ask if she could play Citadels with me. We haven’t played this for ages and it’s one of my favourite games, so how could I turn down such a request? It was also the first time in ages that she has initiated a game play. These things make me smile.
So for our yearly running totals we now have Push It going into the lead on seven plays, followed by 6 and Wetland with five plays a piece. There are several games on three plays, and another nine months to go, so we’ll just have to see how things develop.
