Yearly Summary for 3rd Sunday Gaming 2013

This year marked the 5th anniversary of  my gaming group, which is just amazing!  While 2012 was kind of rough, 2013 ended up being a great year.  Not only did we manage to meet every month (I think), but we added two new couples that are great gamers.  As a result, we have a few more "heavy" gamers; the kind of people who like the complicated, longer games, such as Dune.  Plus, a couple of them are willing to take one of my games home, learn it, and teach it, which takes some of the pressure off of me.  That's fantastic!

The addition of heavy gamers also means that my game shelf has a bit different mix.  Before, I was largely trying to keep my collection mostly casual games that clocked in at no more than two hours.  Now, I have a few more games that are longer and more complex.  Or maybe I should say I am keeping a few more long, complex games.

In 2013, we played 21 different titles.  Quite a few of them were new titles, including games that I have owned for years and never managed to get to the table.  Some of them were not really suitable for family gaming.  Some of them I really should write up.  I didn't write as much as I wanted to this year.  Some of these titles are incredibly fantastic games, though some of them also are ready for the trade pile. 

Soon I will talk about my personal gaming this year, but that will probably wait a few more days.  My son and I are playing War of the Ring over the holidays, and there is normally some gaming going on at our house on New Year's Eve.

I'll be back soon!

It's Your Move!
