It's becoming a New Year's Eve/New Year's Day morning tradition. Four teams with a total of 18 players participated. Team Zappa would have successfully defended it's title from last year, but I couldn't get the rest of the team to agree with me that a rabbi invented speed dating! As a result, the Marching Band Team won this year's title.

They better listen to me next time (and they will, and of course, next time I'll be wrong!)

I had never played this.

It was my last new title of 2013 and my first play of 2014.

More fun than it has any right to be and a good time to boot.

Lots of tired family members after the ball dropped, so we ended up playing this simple family game. The player in front of me couldn't keep the balloon afloat long enough for me to have a chance to use my cards.

Started this one at 1 o'clock
Ideal gameweight for 1 o'clock and the rounds play very fast.

Happy new year!!!

Started learning this one as the clock rolled over. What's more important is that I started the new year off by learning a game from my shelf I hadn't played before. More of that!!

Hi,

We were playing this game before the end of the year and after the ball dropped we continued playing.

Had my oldest son in with his family and the grandkids easily picked up on how to play.

Happy New Year.

Jim..

My wife and I have a New Year's Eve tradition of playing a board game. This started when I was single with some friends who would play Mafia till midnight and then a game of The Lord of the Rings when the crowd died down. Games would often go to 3am or later.

As we've all had kids, and moved farther away, we carry on the tradition now with a game or two but almost always it ends with a game of Royal Visit right around midnight.

This years game started at 11:45. The ball dropped just as I was about to win, so it wasn't finished until close to 1:30am. So it was both the first game of 2014 and the last of 2013.

If you want my first full 2014 game, that would be a fun game of Labyrinth that we played as a family once the kids had fully woken up.

Two-player game. Only my second play of this one ever (first play was solo to get a handle on the rules), and we scored very low (26, I think). My initial impression is that this will be better with more players, but I think we were also too conservative with the action cards in the early phases of the game.

My wife fell in love with Ghost Stories over Christmas break (and I didn't think any co-op would ever threaten Pandemic's playing time around here!) so I wasn't surprised that she requested I set it up while she was getting the last kid to bed. It was our first time played with just two players... and it was easily the worst loss we've had to date (though we won two out of three of our first games with only one rules error that I've found in one game...) so it was nice to see the really hard Ghost Stories experience everyone keeps talking about. We're looking forward to doing better next time!

22. Board Game: Macao [Average Rating:7.43 Overall Rank:311]
Board Game: Macao
Finally played my first game of 2014.
I only recently played my first (complete) Feld game.
I played half a game of Macao a few years ago, but for a long time I didn't get around to playing any of his games, mainly because my regular game group is a bit biased when it comes to Feld.
I really enjoyed both The Castles of Burgundy and Bora Bora. I also like the action cubes in Macao, but overall I don't enjoy it as much as the other two games. I will probably try Amerigo soon. I think there is room for a Feld in my collection, but I'm still not sure what to get.
I'm looking forward to trying his other designs!

This was the first game I played -- I remember really enjoying this game, but forgot just how good it is. As the third member of Dorn's "Tailing Tower" Trilogy (I really don't think that that's a thing, but it's the common mechanical element between Louis XIV, Goa, and Traders of Genoa), it's a phenomenal area majority game for four. I would even go to say that it might even be the best area majority game with 4 (El Grande being the best with 5 and San Marco being the best with 3). The risk taking/management in this is wrenching. Sure, there are safe bets when courting Louis' inner circle, but you don't win if you don't take chances (on your group, as well as attempting to fulfill missions sight unseen).

We started the year off with a game of Rampage which was also the first play of my 10 games 10 plays challenge.

Followed up by two games of Morels. I need to get this 2p gem to the table more often since it is really great and plays pretty fast once the players get a bit familiar with the mechanism.

Played this the 1st of January. A nice 2 player game with my girlfriend opened the last bottle of champagne (the other 2 went empty the night before).

I won with a big margin... I got my own ship... and of we go!
