What was on the table in June?

July 4, 2016 4 comments

June was our lightest month of gaming since I started keeping records at the start of 2013, with a mere 8 plays of 6 different games.


It can’t be a bad month if we got a game of Waterdeep in, right?

This may seem a little weird given that we went to UK Games Expo at the start of the month, but a lot of the day where we were all there (I had been at the Expo for two days already by the time S and Miss B joined me on the Sunday) was taken up by Miss B occupying the roleplaying tables in the family zone, a complete highlight of her year.  This time she played in one game set in the world of Peter Pan (and a sequel to a game she played last year), and one based loosely on the Night at the Museum films.

This year’s Expo was nearly twice the size of last year in terms of attendees, and I think about twice the size in terms of floor space.  It was an amazing event and highly recommended, the family zone is absolutely awesome, and the availability of food and drinks was vastly better than previous years.  We can’t wait for next year.

Anyway, we only played two games more than once: Miss B’s favoured abstract Strategy game, Balanx, and new-to-us In A Bind, which is a hilarious physical game (it has been described, with some justification, as Twister the Card Game) which Miss B is rather taken with and I expect we’ll have a write-up on it pretty soon.

That doesn’t change our stats for the year at all, so we still have Push It our most played game of the year so far with 10 plays, followed by 6 with 7 plays and BraveRats on 6.  (For some reason I am reminded of the old jokey football scoreline: East Fife 4, Forfar 5.)

Onwards.  We’ll be into the school holidays in a couple of weeks or so, so it will be interesting to see if we get more played then.
