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!

66) Fairy Tale
This is a nifty drafting game. For the most part its fairly straight forward although resolving flipping the cards face up is a bit awkward. There are a number of events that can happen depending on which cards have been chosen and they must happen in the correct order. It's a bit tedious going through each step when no cards are relevant to the step, but then you start to skip through the steps faster and triggers get missed. I think this fixes itself once everyone is more comfortable with the game as a whole.
A new story every game?
Hope I get more dwarves and dragons...
The other dragon is upside down
As you can see above I choose the dwarf/dragon route and got EVERY card I wanted. It was fun, but not much of a challenge. I think future plays would offer more difficult choices, which makes me want to play again. My fear is this game would get a bit repetitive after a handful of plays. You're going to be seeing the same cards and strategies over and over and it could get old.
