251852006 gaming goal, an update
- Mar 1, 2006My goal for 2006 is to play no more than a dozen games a single time.
Everything else will hit the table twice or more to squeeze out more
goodness and quality playing time. How am I doing at the end of
February? Let's review my list from the end of January:
Apples to Apples
Carabande Action Set
Fiese Freunde Fette Feten
Sitting Ducks Gallery
As expected, 6 Nimmt!, Carabande Action Set, Caylus, and Jambo are
already off the list; more surprisingly, FFFF, St. Petersburg, Tichu,
and Viva Pamplona have also hit multiple plays, leaving only eight
titles in the singleton column. Joining the list in February, though, are:
Texas Roll 'Em
So the list now boasts 17 titles. Big Boss, China, Hansa, and
TransAmerica should be locks on the multi-play list. The SimplyFun
titles (Handy, Somethin' Fishy, Texas Roll 'Em) are iffy, but not out of
the question given that I'm trying to place reviews of most of them.
Kommando and Pico 2 are two-player fillers, so all I need is a few
minutes with someone and BAM! another notch on the belt.
Plenty of titles went 1-2 to spring past the singleton stumbling block:
Brawl (with 10 plays on Feb. 28 in preparation for a review in
Grappling), Easy Come, Easy Go (which delights my wife and plays in
minutes), Circus Flohcati (another review, this time for Coffee
Magazine), Roma, Time Is Money, Marracash, Timbuktu (to be reviewed in
Knucklebones), and a few others.
Enough gassing from me -- are you making progress on your goals? Do you
even have a goal?
