A quick look at what i’ve been playing and buying in the first quarter of 2016 compared to previous years.
Total plays: 173 (136 in 2015, 108 in 2014, 64 in 2013)
Distinct games: 51 (41 in 2015, 36 in 2014, 28 in 2013)
New-to-me games: 26 (9 in 2015, 17 in 2014)
Nickels: 12 (2 in 2015, 5 in 2014, 3 in 2013) Bomb Squad (8), Between Two Cities (6), Chicken Cha Cha (6), Abluxxen (6), Quartermaster General (6), Tragedy Looper (6), Fields of Arle (5), Navajo Wars (5), Patchistory (5), Snowdonia (5), Sylvion (5),Pax Porfiriana (5)
The increase in the number of games played over the year is quite clear. I have more groups to play with now and I’ve also been playing more and more solo games. However, the new to me is more than i would like and i’d prefer to increase the Dimes and Nickels i.e. play games i’ve already played more times.
Acquired: 10 (SotM: Villains of the Multiverse, Time Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons, Qwinto, Wings for the Baron, Good Cop Bad Cop, SotM: Chokepoint Villain, Mess Machine, Funemployed, Nemo’s War, SotM:OblivAeon)
Removed: 1 (Bomb Squad)
Yeap, it’s a bleak picture which continued from 2015. Too many purchases. Working on it.
Best new-to-me: Navajo Wars, Red7, Castellion, Snowdownia,
New 10s: 1 – Navajo Wars
Navajo Wars is an outstanding solitaire experience. I need to be in the mood to play it as it requires time and effort but it’s well worth it.
