2016 in Review

I started this a few weeks ago, but life has been crazy.  I am only finishing it now...

In some ways, 2016 was the one of the worst years I have had gaming.  Since I started getting back into gaming in 2008, only 2012 was worse.  In 2016 I had a total of 76 plays on 42 separate days.  That said, I had a good variety of games, having played a total of 41 different game titles.  I did play 19 games that I have never played before, which is actually on par with the past few years.  

I am making a concerted effort of not letting any games sit on my shelf more than five years.  I am not quite there, but I am getting there.  I am also much more diligent about getting rid of games that I don't really have a desire to play, even if I haven't played them yet.  I acquired 16 games this year, but since I am getting rid of games at roughly the same rate, my collection of about the same size.  Only a very few of those were purchases (and at least one of them was a Kickstarter project from before this year).  Others were trades, and of course a few gifts. 

The game highlights of the year were playing Star Wars: Rebellion, Mission: Red Planet and Power Grid.  These are all excellent games.  I actually don't recall playing any bad games this year.  The surprise of the year was Russian Railroads, which I received a couple of years ago as a very surprising Christmas gift.  I had only started considering it when I was given it, but it proved to be another worker placement game that I love.  

Great neighbors who moved away gave us a table they couldn't take with them, so I added another gaming table to the gaming area.  That was great, and it gets used a lot. 

So, unlike 2012, this past year felt as though it was a full and satisfying year.  Now, I need to start thinking about what to accomplish this year...

It's Your Move!
