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!

A fun resource management game that has so many things I enjoy. You're buying and upgrading cards that give you different resources. You're placing workers on the cards you've bought to generate more resources. You're founding colonies, hiring advisors, and building wonders, which all produce resources. Additionally you're fighting to have the strongest military, influence, and knowledge as show in the bottom picture. There's so much going on and you're constantly balancing what your doing based on other players strategy. And yet the game play is so easy and smooth.
Just getting started
Cards available for purchase
Keeping track of everything but points
If you can't tell from above - I really enjoyed this game. Afterwards we were told this was a very atypical game as three players were battling for military almost the entire game. I'm excited to try again with a different strategy.
