I was checking in on when I usually do my Top 10 game post and was so very surprised that the last post was a year ago! Time to correct that! But what to write about.
First up, my little experiment. At the beginning of the year, I wanted to see if I could reach 1000 games played this year. Thanks to some illness and then going to Nepal for three weeks, which nipped game playing for about 3 months, that 1000 number is now set to 750. I am pretty sure I am going to come up short, but it has been an interesting experience. I'm up to 457 plays, 56 of which are first time plays (sheesh). You can check it out here:
Each game has it's own entry and quick write up. For some, there is a small amount of running commentary as well.

Lastly, I feel like I have finally caught up! By that I mean when you come into the hobby, most people's heads swim with the huge selection of games that exist and the large amount of great games out there. Recently, through trading and selling some games, I've gotten myself to the point that there really isn't anything from the past that I am desperate to have in the collection at this point. Nowadays, I just look ahead for what's due out soon and also look for promos or small expansions for what I have. Not to mention, I love trying out other people's games and seeing what they like a bunch,
