Weekly Challenge #3 The Shelf of Shame
We really enjoyed all 4, and especially Viticulture. Most of these had been on the shelf for over a year, some closing on two years. They are fairly big games to set up and learn (Sythe and Mars) and so were always put on the back burner for something new or something easy to get to the table..Like The Crew (87 plays) lol. But very happy to have gotten all of them to the table and have had mutiple plays of each except Syche at this point but will definately be going back to that one. There is a great feeling when you finally get a game, especially games of this calibur to the table after so long. You also have the "benefit" of having read about them and watched playthroughs of them multiple times so you have a much better understanding of them going in than a game you buy and play right away. Not that I'm suggesting this is a good strat to play games but it was a "benefit" in this case. I still have a lot to go, Over 30 games still on the shelf unplayed, but most of those are newer...The big one that needs playing is Gloomhaven...but I just got in the Jaws of the Lion and that will happen first and hopefully transition us easily into the bigger game, so in some ways I'm happy I waited.
