What was on the table in April?

May 11, 2016

I’m a bit late again this month, but on the other hand, we’ve just passed five years of this blog.  Okay, so the posting frequency has fluctuated a lot, but this counts as a very long term project for me! 🙂

So April turned out to be a huge month for gaming for us, with 42 plays of 29 different titles.  The last time we played more games than that in a month was January of 2015.  Okay, so a lot of those games were quick, small games, but hey, it all counts!


After a long period of avoiding cooperative games, we ended up having Forbidden Desert and Castle Panic in the same weekend!

One weekend got a lot of play due to us hosting a gaming afternoon, where the house was overrun by game playing families.  Actually, this contributed to Miss B’s personal play count quite significantly, but rather less to mine, and we didn’t play together much.  But I was so pleased to see her just piling into games with assorted different people, particularly when I caught her setting up Odin’s Ravens with one of her friends; I just needed to help explain the rules, and they were off.

Top of the heap of games in April was Mastermind, with four plays (we count a play as one guessing game each), followed by Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow, Odin’s Ravens, Highwayman, and BraveRats with three plays, and Push It and Magikus on two each.

That leaves the year-so-far totals with Push It consolidating its lead with nine plays, with BraveRats moving up strongly to six plays, followed by 6, Odin’s Ravens, and Wetland on five plays a piece.

    I believe our most popular games this month were Port Royal and Jaipur….. by complete coincidence the two games I beat you at on Yucata…. are you speaking to me again yet…? 🙂

      😀 Those games are clearly entirely luck and no skill. We’ll have a rematch soon (and, if necessary, another), and eventually, by the law of averages, I’ll beat you.

    You are right, of course – it was only by pure chance that I won the second round of Jaipur by NINETY-SIX to 55…..!! 😀
    Do you play Gates of Loyang at all ? Not everyone likes it but I think it is another Uwe Rosenberg masterwork. I have to be careful with Yucata as it does tend to “take over”, but I would be up for a two player game anytime…

      Yeah, but you only just managed to scrape that 96.

      Not tried GoL. Happy to give it a go.

    I have played Fluxx, Pirate Fluxx, Take It Easy, Sheriff Of Nottingham and Colt Express Horses and Stagecoach!

      Sounds like you had a good month. Do you like the Colt Express expansion?

        Yes. I love it!

          Cool. I’m sure I’ll get to try it sooner or later.
