Well, its that time of the year for the obligatory post addressing the question, “How much did I game in 2017?” This year I tried to keep better stats using BoardGameGeek. Here is my year:
If my math is correct, that is 124 plays of 59 different games. Actually, it’s only 57 different games because there are two expansions in there.
I have no real data to compare these numbers to because I admit I only sporadically logged game plays in 2016 and before. But there are a few trends I noticed myself.
Family Gaming: This was the year that the family started gaming together. Look at all the family games. From heavy games like Scythe to lighter fare in Kingdominothe game shelf is sagging a bit more this year.
Hollandspiele: Another small publisher. Small, innovative and interesting games have rekindled my love of wargames.
All in all, 2017 was a good gaming year. Here’s to hoping 2018 continues the trend!
