played more games for a July than I have since July 2001.
31 games played, 25 titles (2 new to me) over 8 sessions with 26 different people.
Hot Games for July, 2004
- A great abstract that seems to have a very reasonable learnin gcurve with a lot of tactics to learn.
- Power Grid
- I'm not so good at this, and I always end up sputtering out in the endgame, but it's a load of fun.
- San Juan
- I must say I'm surprised, but this keeps getting better.
- Lord of the Rings
- I finally got around to playing with the "dark tiles". Nice twist. Definitely harder. Sauron (Sean) got us in Shelob's Lair.
- St. Petersburg
- It's different, but it even plays well two player.
- I like this game because it seems to lend itself to some surprising tactics.
- I should play this more.
- I used to think I finally had a handle on this one, and now I'm beginning to doubt it.
- One of the all time greats, still.
