Let the Games Begin!
We got sucked into Nan's last weekend and bought four, count 'em four! new games. Well, one of them is the Traders & Barbarians expansion for Settlers, so maybe that sorta kinda doesn't count.... At any rate, I never can resist a game, and the MO was in an acquisitive mood as well, so we came home with the aforementioned Settlers expansion, Infernal Contraption, Toledo and To Court the King. We played Infernal Contraption that night, roping TxB into the let's-figure-out-the-rules-for-a-new-game scenario. The MO and I both liked that one a lot.
Anyhow, the point is that we took a good look at our game stack, and realized that it's getting pretty sizable. Enough so that when we get hooked on a new game (hello Quickword), it's easy to forget about great games that we already own. So we decided to set up a play-every-game-we-own tourney. I made a list and came up with 63 titles! Ten through 69 is easy to randomize with a d6 and a d10 so the first 60 games on the list are numbered and we'll slot the remainders into the used numbers as we roll them. We agreed to play at least one game per week, so this experiment should go on for about, oh, ONE YEAR....
Official game night is Wednesday, but we snuck in an extra one tonight. Behold the first result of the Willard Grand Tourney:
Woohoo! You know the MO is not going to let this early lead go unanswered for long. Feel free to place your bets here ;-)
