30 Games in 30 Days - Going Out With a Bang

Not really...

But sort of...

We've been trying to play a different game each day in the month of September. My last update was Sunday - which brought us up to the 27th (30 Games in 30 Days - Into the Home Stretch)

On Monday I wandered by the Dragon's Den and used my gift certificate won at ToonCon to pick up Rumpelstiltskin. We played it a few times that afternoon/evening. 

On Tuesday... we totally didn't play any games at all... doh... So close... I think everyone was getting a bit games out and I know I was still damned tired from teh weekend... anyway, just didn't happen. 

Today we played Exploding Kittens... and that was it. 

Did we play a different game every day this month? Nope. As I mentioned we didn't even play a gmae at all on Tuesday!? And there was a day (or maybe two...) where we only played a game that we had already played. In those terms - the original terms of the challenge - we failed... But in terms of the SPIRIT of the challenge - playing more games and more different games - I would say it was a success. While we didn't play games EVERY day - and not EVERYONE (Me, Amanda, The Boy, The Girl) played every game or every day - but we (the Kids and I, at least) did play more than thirty games in the month - and Amanda played a lot of games too. 

Over the month we played the following games:

Rumpelstiltskin x4
Song of Blades and Heroes  x4
Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) x4
Frostgrave x3
Meridian x3
7 Wonders  x2
Hive Pocket x2

39 different games were played - some of them multiple times! Not bad... Mind you 11 of those were games only The Boy and I played at ToonCon...

I still have an ongoing challenge to add plays to 100 games that I have no plays recorded on BGG by the end of the year.

    1. Thanks Gordon! I actually count myself as the "lucky" one - lucky that I have kids that love playing games - and are willing to play them with me!

  2. Well done Tim! Well done indeed!

  3. Well done!
    Inspiring, to say the least.
