Merry Christmas, everyone! Here's our family game gifts.

#Tenzi?? I have never heard of that game. Do you like it? would it be a good family game for me to look into?

We got four players to the table for a game of #Obsession saturday evening.  We noted that with four players the rooms come close to running out and meeples have to be brabbe quick if you want more than just footmen.  One player (the winner) went heavy and hard on the sporting estate upgrades and even though only one courtship card was for sporting events he still ended up winning pretty handily.  I am curious in future games if this will prove to be an unbalanced edge to the person who gets the most sporting tiles.

#Dice Forge made it to the table for a four player family game last week and appearently our cat loves the dice as well.  We lost one that was dragged away by the cat.  Two days later we found where he was hidding it.  Stupid cat.

I struggled through two solo games of #Clans of Caledonia using Clan Ferguson.  I did pretty terribly.  71 and I guess my clan got wiped out you could say.  Getting enough settlements to grab the end-game score of 18 points was challenging and I think I focused too much on the early goals instead of building more.  

I noticed #Disney: The Haunted Mansion - Call of the Spirits Game  $17.50 (yes, I'll keep plugging the game-it's a good family game), #The Game: Quick & Easy $9.00, #Pendulum $36.00 a Stonemaier game

Ha, well we all know mine... #John Company (Second Edition) and this with knowing next to nothing about it.

Quick side note, #PARKS has been on my radar as a possibly family game (by the way, since it's a game for my whole family it would not count toward my personal gaming goal... it's not a game I would probably pick up just for my gaming group or solo gaming).  But my FLGS has it on sale for $35! so I picked it up and plan on trying it out (minus a few rules for the first play) tomorrow with the family.

We played July in #Pandemic Legacy: Season 0. This was our first loss. The incidents were fast and furious early and we didn't recover.

We played my "Best Game of 2020" winner #The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine and one of my favourite games of all time #The Castles of Burgundy

Finally got to try #New York Zoo. It's very good. It might get lost in the shuffle of family games that play in 30 minutes but we'll get several plays out of it when we can see people again. I can think of many people who will enjoy this game.

Short games that got to the table during gaps in between home tasks: #Pictures and #On Tour 

Nice.  I don't know that I'll get to 5 over the Holiday's and I wonder how we judge that (for me the Holiday's start at Thanksgiving and end at Epiphany (January 6th) which gives me a while to get to everything)... but I'll go with the following

1. #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) (yes I finally have it and I'm hoping I'll get to it on Monday with my gaming group, but if not that will be because we will be playing my 2

2. #Root (always a great time and my group is starting to really grow into it more and more.)

3. #Dune (this could be 1, 2 or 3, it's mostly 3 right now because of my top 3 it's the least likely to make it to the table).

4. #My Little Scythe (we got this out again as a family game just last night!)

5. #Scythe: The Rise of Fenris (this is my long shot game, I'm hoping that maybe my next gaming group we can start this bad boy).
