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!

23) Hera and Zeus
This is a quick paced game that has good strategic value for a two player game. There are enough cards and different interactions between the cards to keep things interesting. It took a while to fully understand what all the cards did and how best to play them, but by the second game I felt like I didn't have to constantly check the reference sheet anymore.
Who will strike first
A few cards
Things are heating up
Some two player games tend to have one player who starts dominating and the game is over a few turns before it actually ends. This game, in contrast, could have a player who appears to be losing come back and win. So much of this game is playing to the current board situation and thus if you have the right cards you can make smart plays that allow you to win even if you feel like you're behind.
