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 game is amazing, but expect a brain overload the first few times you play. The mancala system is a unique and challenging way of determining which actions you'll do. That alone is a game in itself, but then trying to bring together all these choices into a coherent strategy was too much to try and process. I felt like towards the end I was starting to understand more how everything fits together, but the mancala was a constant challenge. Of course, you can always do what one player did and attempt to get all your pieces on the same action...twice.
Ready to start
Mancala makes my brain hurt
The people demand food
End game board
Building a successful strategy, Ha!
This game has so much depth that I feel like this first game only scratched the surface. I look forward to playing again and would highly recommend this if you're looking for something thats really going to make you think.
