Playing all the games!!!

So I don't have a massive collection...maybe 100 games or so, but I've committed to playing (almost) every game I own this upcoming year.

My wife is the (un)fortunate participant in this project, and I don't know that I'll be able to finish it, but I'm going to try.

We started with Codenames: Duet and Dice Forge this past weekend.

My encouragement to all of you is to go back and play through your collection. Enjoy what you already have!

Great advice!  I think I will do more of that...it seems like I get caught up in the "game" of looking for new games, and enjoying the ones I have suffers a bit.  Perhaps because I don't have much opportunity to play them, so it might be a bit of retail therapy :-)

Hope you can complete your journey

I commend you on your ambitious goal and wish you good fortune on your path toward completion. What game will be the easiest to get to the table? Which one will be the most difficult?

I think #The Quacks of Quedlinburg is the easiest because my wife and older son (6 years old) both really enjoy it.

I'd say #On Mars or #Fief: France 1429 will be the most difficult.

Quacks is super fun, big hit for families

Sounds like you have a great collection.

Yeah, here's my collection...from that other site https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/dhopkins

Looking at it, I probably own fewer than 100 total games. I think there are a few missing there, but I do have a fair number of expansions, so it may be in the 90s or something.

That's awesome. You have some good games.

So, this seems like a very worthy goal. Best wishes as you push through.

That's an awfully positive outlook for a Marshwiggle :)

Supporter57 days ago

Probably burn out on gaming completely I wouldn't wonder. LOL

That's more in character...

Wow that is quite a goal. My question is, have you previously played them all or are you doing this because you have several unplayed? I feel like my better half would be an unfortunate participant in something like this too. Though she is currently planning a Sushi themed game night so there's hope.

I have played all of them but one: #Lorenzo il Magnifico. Last week, I soloed #Clans of Caledonia, but I think that one will be much better with more people.

I also don't have any that are in shrink. I've been playing games for the past 12 years, I think. My first two games I purchased were Ticket To Ride and Agricola, and I've slowly built up my collection since then.

I've also sold a decent number of games over time as well, so I've probably owned about 125 games, I think.

That's not bad at all! I have some unplayed only because I got them pretty recently. Nothing in shrink still though thankfully. I don't understand people who can do that lol I'm always too excited to play new games. I do have some games I've owned and sold without ever playing though. Those were gifts I just wasn't interested in so I don't count that against myself. How many of the 125 do you still have?

Also side note: I really want to shame you for not playing Lorenzo. Such a great game

+1 for shaming 

Premium User56 days ago

You like Lorenzo too?

I thought I made it clear...i like shaming :P. 

 

But i don't know cuz I also haven't played it haha. But @mattpioch loves it

Premium User56 days ago

Gotcha. Wonder if it's on Tabletopia. Maybe I can teach you something for once

56 days ago

I'm pretty sure it is. Could be mistaken. Matt is definitely down to play that too. He's probably going to bring it to a little weeklong board game gathering we're having soon.

weeklong board game gathering? That sounds epic! What's top of the list to get played?

Sorry for butting in, but I saw this comment in the feed lol

Premium User56 days ago

Yeah here is what we call "lucky" for having friends to do this with. I'm sure he's got more than enough KS content to get a weeks worth of games in

56 days ago

Hahaha and more on the way 

Premium User56 days ago

Why am I not surprised...

55 days ago

Pretty sure you're jealous and want to play all the games with me :P

Premium User55 days ago

You may be onto something there.

Lol you have an eternal invite, my friend 

Premium User55 days ago

Do you ever play anything on Board Game Arena? May be easier for us to play stuff that way since we don't have to be in the same place at the same time.

I have played a game of Red7 on BGA with @NeoprenePlayMatt @mattpioch before
