I've gotten a mix of new and old games this month (some reviews, some purchases, some gifts):

#The Shores of Tripoli -- two player relatively intro CDG game with a historical basis?  I'm in! 

#Whistle Stop -- okay, admission time -- I actually thought I had ordered Whistle Mountain. But that's okay, I've yet to play Whistle Stop and I like lighter train games anyway!

#Carpe Diem -- Alea / Ravensburger asked me to cover the brand new (unofficially 3d) edition with the beautiful new cover and vibrant tiles. No need to ask me twice, I like Feld games and had so much trouble getting past the blase tiles that came in the first edition. Super excited to play this

#MonsDRAWsity -- holy cow! This is easily my Party Game of the Year! Okay, that's not that tough, since party games were pretty tough to play. But it wouldn't matter, because it would be hard to find a game that fits this category better and consistently delivers the laughs and the fun. Must play at a convention!

#Cubitos -- John D Clair just keeps comin' on with unique style games twisting familiar mechanics. Part race game, part bag building dice game (without the bag) and part engine builder. Played this a bunch with my wife already and she loves it. 

#Wingspan: Oceania Expansion -- haven't played this yet, but my wife loves Wingspan and we played the previous expansion right away so it won't be long before we get this to the table. 

Last but not least, #Spike -- My second copy. I loved this light Ticket To Ride+ train route game that has some fun economic elements. I gave my previous copy away to a family that really enjoyed it and missed it in my collection, so I got another one from R&R! 

This is a lighter list than 2019 but much more mangeable. Besides, I've got a half dozen or more still left to play on the Shelf of Opportunity. 

Merry Christmas to everyone at the Atlas and I hope you all have a bright 2021!
