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!

This is one of my two favorite co-op games. It has a good theme, a good balance between taking actions for immediate bonus and planning for future rounds, and a good sense of working together to reach victory. At the same time this game, unlike many other co-ops, doesn't suffer from the problem of one person telling everyone else what to do. It is also great because you can ramp up the difficulty as you become better to continually challenge your group.

I played Freyja
Collecting sets is key
And if everything above didn't sell it just look at that board again. It's so beautiful. This is a great game that comes highly recommended.
