Taking inspiration from birdwatchers this blog will be a record of every unique game I play during 2014. I will provide an overview of each game with my experiences or thoughts about the game. Additionally I will be tagging with labels shown on the left hand side for easy searching of game types.
On a grander scale I hope to inspire others to attempt their big year and experience the joy of gaming!

Arrrrgh, a pirate game. Ended up playing this one twice in a row. It's quick (under an hour) and simple to play, and you just can't beat the suspense and anticipation of flipping over the cards. It's always interesting how everyone gets the exact same start hand, but almost from the get go the strategies used are so divergent. At the beginning of one of the rounds I think three or four of us were all saying there was an obvious first play, but when the cards were revealed only two people had chosen the same card.
First round gambler never pays off.
Finally got the illusive third treasure map.
I would highly recommend this game as a fun, light strategy game. It's also a great gateway game for introducing people to more complex games.
