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 classic game that launched the popularity of worker placement games and is a must play for everyone (at least in my opinion). There is too much going on to give a comprehensive overview, but more generally you're collecting resources and building new locations and increasing your favor with the king and getting special actions and scoring points. All this is done through the worker placement mechanic. Needless to say there's a lot going on and its a fun challenge to try and balance everything.
Ready to start
Should I build a house...
...Ok, I'll build one
As you can guess from the intro I highly recommend playing this game. It is fairly in-depth and a bit complex so be prepared to put some time into your first few plays. Once you get a feel for the game you'll be impressed at how smooth the game play is and the nuances and depth that this game provides will keep you coming back for more.
