1. Highest weight: Spirit Island

3. Spent most money: Android: Netrunner, so many data packs to get and I still don't have them all

4. Most beautiful: hard to argue against Spirit Island

5. Favorite: in my collection, Android: Netrunner although Gaia Project might give it a run for it's money if I owned it.

6. Most played: Roll for the Galaxy (40 plays recorded, though there may be a touch more than that). Nearly half of these have been 2 player against my brother in a single weekend. We were knocking out games in 15 minutes.

I always like these types of posts :)

I don't own a lot of games so I counted in some of the games I co-own with @trentellingsen for BGA (I might have counted in games that are owned by you Trent since I don't remember which ones we co-own lol)

  • Highest weight - Pax Pamir 2e at 3.83
  • Lowest weight - Just One at 1.08
  • Game you have spent the most money on - Viticulture (Tuscany and other expansions to be purchased soon)
  • Most beautiful game - Hmmm I'm split between Azul and Viticulture (they're photogenic in different ways)
  • Favorite game - Viticulture
  • Most played - Just One

Supporter11 months ago

Maybe I need to seriously consider Viticulture if I ever win the contest again. 

Owner10 months ago

It ended up working out that way haha--I'd definitely give the "most beautiful game" to PARKS if I thought about the games between me and Trent. Viticulture still looks fantastic in pictures though. It also gets huge credit for just being the game to draw my wife in :)

Agra at 4.38, Antiquity at 4.31. The one I spent the most money on is Antiquity, in between reprints.

Monopoly Deal Card Game 194 (used to play it at lunch with a coworker)

Yahtzee 185 (but we've played many more before and since and usually don't bother logging)

Magnate 145

Utopian Rummy 128

Ra: The Dice Game 119

Agricola 96

Piraten Kapern 95

I've also played a bunch of Star Realms, Keltis Das Orakle, and Ganz Schon Clever on my phone that I didn't log.

Supporter11 months ago

I like this post. 

1: Star Trek: Frontiers 4:28

2: Farkle 1.0. Spot it was a close second with 1.03.

3: Scythe. I think I paid between 65 and 70 dollars for it. 

4: definitely subjective... But... I say Scythe. 

5: Scythe

6: Dominion. Use to log plays and got over 150 in a span of about 6 month. Then stopped logging for two years. I imagine I'm up to 250 plays of it. That number is a chunk higher if you throw in intrigue. 

Supporter11 months ago

Chris, I never knew until within the last couple of days that you were such a fan of Scythe!

Supporter11 months ago

I last went to the states in May. I took Scythe with me because I knew I could get in a 5 player game of it up there. BUT then on the return trip I didn't have room for it. So it is still there. We have had a bunch of company visiting us from the states, and I expected that I would only be separated for several months. But, for one reason or other it hasnt worked to bring it down yet. I am tentatively planning on going back up in March for my sister's wedding. And am planning on working pretty hard to get it down here on that trip. 

But the long story is that I really haven't been able to play it much the last number of months. So, I haven't been talking about it as much. 

Supporter11 months ago

That makes sense!

Supporter11 months ago

It is actually a complaint I have. I think that every "big" board game should come in a ticket to ride size box. Just make it as thick at you need to store everything. The physical size of the scythe box makes it harder to transport. 

11 months ago

I definitely think that box could be made smaller. Jamey just went overboard, as he usually does, with inserts for the minis.

Supporter11 months ago

I accidently deleted my comment.

I was just saying that if Jamey would have made his inserts a different size/shape he could have made a square box. I would have loved that.

Supporter11 months ago

I actually had to toss all the inserts so I could combine all the expansions into the main box. It fits quite nicely!

Supporter11 months ago

That bumps my interest in the expansions. You got everything in the main box? How? Did you use baggies? Did you buy a organizer? Is it all in a jumble at the bottom of the box? 

Supporter11 months ago

I don’t work this morning so I’ll make a post about how I organized it. 

Supporter11 months ago

Great.

I posted it as an article. I’m not sure where it went after I posted it. 

Supporter11 months ago

I found it.

Game I've Spent the Most On

Scythe - I have everything for this game besides the metal mechs, and I will probably end up with a full set of those at some point as well.


Most Beautiful Game
Wife's Pick: PARKS

My Pick: Lisboa


Favorite Game

Wife's Pick: Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle

My Pick: Scythe - my tastes have shifted away from medium euros to heavier, more interactive fare, but this is the game that got me into the hobby, and I still love it. Every time I think something is going to dethrone it, I play it, and all those doubts are washed away. It's amazing.


Most Played Game

Scythe - I don't have an accurate count as I didn't start logging plays until last fall, but my wife and I easily have 100+ plays of this.

1310 plays is insane! This must be with the app? Do you play against someone or the AI bot?

For me:

  1. Highest weight game
    Empire of the Sun (4.2, but Wargame) and Bios Megafauna 2e (4.5). Both super tough to learn from the rulebook. Though BM2e is actually really simple to play once you internalize the rules.
  2. Lowest weight game
    Monikers! Fun, but the version I have is US pop culture that doesn't work well in Europe.
  3. Game you have spent the most money on
    Roads and boats 20th Anniversary. Very pure network building and resource conversion game.
  4. Most beautiful game
    Pax Pamir 2e.
  5. Favorite game
    Currently The Great Zimbabwe
  6. Most played game
    Pax Pamir 2e (~40 plays)

I do have the app and every play I've ever had has been on there. I've owned a physical copy that's never been played :p

I count all of my plays against live opponents. Any games against the AI are not included.

Supporter11 months ago

I've been thinking about bios megafuana 2. Is it in a small box like a lot of his games? 

How long does it take? 

11 months ago

It's the same size as porf, or about two genesis stuck together. Still quite small. From bgg:

Size: 12.60 x 6.30 x 2.36 inches or 32.0 x 16.0 x 6.0 cm


I've only played it solo so not sure about times. I'd guess you'd average around a ~3 hour game, though sometimes the game will end early if it goes into an ice age. Some people love it, but for me it's very much on the simulation side of things. You have a lot of choices, but even if you make good ones the game can wipe you out. The event cards have a really big impact, which is very true to the theme.
