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 basically speed tetris. Each player grabs one of the 36 different puzzle boards, the dice is rolled, and you grab the corresponding pieces and try to solve your puzzle. If you finish your puzzle you're allowed to score by collecting gems. Then each player grabs a new board and starts again.
Ready to collect some gems
Individual player pieces
This game is super light and quite easy to pick up although can be challenging if you don't like solving spatial puzzles. The scoring is a bit silly as it feels overly complex and doesn't quite fit the game. Regardless, its a really quick game thats perfect as a filler or for people who enjoy lighter games.
