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!

In this game you're building and upgrading hotels and then having guests from the train come and stay in your hotel. Of course when they leave they give you money to further grow your hotel chain.
Passengers on a train
End game loot
This was a fun game to play and easy to pick up. I expect that after multiple plays this game would start to move more towards a luck based game. It rewards players who get ahead and getting ahead in this game is based in large part about turn order and what level of passengers come out on the train. I expect once players learn these patterns and start to optimize their decisions this game could lose some enjoyment. It also didn't leave me with a feeling of wanting to play again. It's a good game to play once or twice, but there are better options in my opinion.
