Another 31 days and a new month, as well as my birthday, meaning lots of games being played today on June 1st.
May was a good month of gaming. I had my first experience playing games with a group at church, primarily Catan, but also some other games. I didn't have as many Mondays due to finals. The good news is that it's summer, which always means lots of games.
I played 36 games in 31 days, gaining just a tad, but the summer tends to be a boost. That brings the YTD total to 147/365. Ideally I would be at 151, so just 4 behind. I played 15 games for the first time this year, which brings me up to 59/100. I also got to play with 21 new people, bringing that count to 49/50.
Just a quick list of what I actually played in May
- King of Tokyo
- Eight-Minute Empire
- Flash Point
- Smash Up
- Ace of Spies
- Article 27
- Cinque Terre
- Martian Dice
- Race to Adventure
- Scary Tales
- Screaming Eagles
- Star Trek Catan
- Ticket to Ride
- Tiki Topple
I acquired 2 new games in May - Eight-Minute Empire (Kickstarter arrival) and The Hunger Games District 12 game (B&N 75% off clearance). I also caved and bought the expansions for Dominion online - goko.com - which I've been playing a lot.
Looking ahead to June, my game playing should see a bigger uptick. My birthday leads to a lot of games, game groups tend to run later since there's less going on, and more people tend to show up. I'm hoping to review Eight-Minute Empire so look for that soon, as well as a review for the King of Tokyo and Smash Up expansions.
Until next time, thanks for reading.
