2011, Off to a slow year.

So far 2011 Achievements in Gaming has gotten a slow start. I have not attended a gaming night at Pulp Fiction in well over a month. Honestly, I've lacked the motivation to drag my butt out from the front of my fire place. I have picked up a few games from local thrifts, and trades from board game geek .com. However I have lost my motivation along the way. Seasonal affective disorder? Naw I'm just lazy. I heard from Andy Mahon that the new game 7 Wonders is great fun. It is on my list to play as well as several other games. One bright spot is that I submitted an event application for Gencon. I always try to do something new at Gencon. I have never hosted an event before. It is entitled the "Sid Sackson Fan Fest." I opened the event up to 4-16 players who would like to gather and play Sid Sackson games including Acquire, Can't Stop, Focus, and others. Prizes & swag for all!! I did manage to play the '80s version of Mystery Mansion with Ian this week. I up graded the game by adding painted figures from an old copy of DVD Clue rather than using the pawns that came with the game.

My Five's & Ten's of 2010

Five and tens are a traditional list of board games that were played at least 5 & or 10 times. It might suggest gaming favorites, or other trends/patterns such as quick, easy games. I have logged all of my games played for the past five years, so it makes for some interesting comparisons. I logged 239 playes in 2010. I got in the most games in April (41) and the fewest was in February with 6.

My 5's are; GoSu 5, Animal Upon Animal 5, A World Without End 6, Carcassonne 7, Acquire 7, Scrabble 9, Can't Stop 9

My 10's are; Call of Cthulhu 11 & Magic the Gathering 16

In a nice note, two Sid Sackson games are on this list, Acquire & Can't Stop

My first two games played in 2011 were Perry Rhodan: The Cosmic League & Carcassonne.
