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 collecting gems distributed on the board and bringing them to various cities to fulfill contracts. Players are also competing for which contracts they get and which type (color) of gem they can carry. The player who optimizes all these factors will most likely be victorious.

My final score
I'm glad I got to play this game, but wouldn't necessarily recommend it. I enjoy the mechanics and the race to be the first to complete different tasks, but as a whole the game feels too linear and became a bit repetitive after a while.
