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 a deck building version of scrabble. Everyone starts out with some standard consonants and a some wild cards. Players draw five cards and on their turn spell a word with the cards in hand. Cards used in the spelled word have buying power allowing a player to purchase different letters that can also come with special abilities. Eventually players are buying expensive wild cards that count as points at the end of the game.
Getting set up
Letters available for purchase
Despite being a horrible speller I really enjoyed this game. It's a fun challenge of spelling words with a defined letter pool and buying other letters for future words. This is a great light game that introduces the idea of deck building.
