With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

This year, I have a variety of lofty aspirations for my boardgaming. I'm doing the usual 10x10/100x1 and am adding the A to Z challenge, but I'm hoping to start a podcast and get several of my board game designs out there this year.

I'm creating a geeklist to track my progress this year. I plan to document things like weekend recaps, podcast episodes, exceptional plays, games that make it into the database that I helped with in some capacity, and just anything else that pops up. I do expect this to be a fairly long geeklist by the time the end of the year rolls around, just as a heads up!

Weekend Recap: 12/30/16-1/1/17

Overview: We had several New Year's gaming celebrations (one each night), and I got in a ton of plays of more social/party games to celebrate the festivities.

Plays: 22

Most Memorable Play: We did our drinking version of coconuts with shot glass land mines scattered around the table. Landing in one makes you give up your seat (we had 6 people and only 4 monkeys), and you have to spin the shot roulette wheel.

Best New Games Played: Terra? It was the only new game I played, but I didn't really enjoy it that much.

Weekend Recap: 1/13-1/16

Overview: RATHCON! We do a WWer/Boomer con in DC at a board gaming cafe. There were probably 20-30 of us there each day.

Plays: 36

Most Memorable Play: We played a whole bunch of neutral shenanigans-y rolesets of Two Rooms and a Boom. It was great playing with people that really get the game and the things that you can do with the roles.

Best New Games Played: Terraforming Mars, Luna, and Concordia were my favorite, but New Angeles and Great Western Trail were also fantastic.

Weekend Recap: 1/20-1/22

Overview: I had a group of 6 over for some casual gaming. We played a bunch of the classics (Shadow Hunters, BANG!, etc) and tried out a few games.

Plays: 14

Most Memorable Play: We did a Shadow Hunters round where no one looked at their card until a player reached 14 damage, at which point everyone dead died and we went from there. It was super shenanigans-y.

Best New Games Played: Celestia and 7 Ronin. I can't believe how long it took me to play either.

Weekend Recap: 1/27-1/29

Overview: On Friday night, I had a friend over for a few hours of gaming. Saturday was a drinking/games night at Abernathy and Eddy's place!

Plays: 18

Most Memorable Play: Kristin and I tied at Love Letter Premium when she got Affection via the Constable, and I won the round by eliminating everyone! It was particularly notable because Colin had won all 4 of the games we'd played before that, so it was nice to kick his butt at something.

Best New Games Played: Bad Beets! I was pretty tipsy by the time we played it, but I liked the streamlined elements of Coup.
