My Five & Dimes; 2011 Games Played

2011 was a wonderful year in gaming. I got in 280 played games this year that spanned 92 different games. This was up from 239 plays in 2011. My favorite games this year were Puppet Wars, Innovation, and Le Havre. Acquire was the only game that made last years and this year’s 5 & 10. Three games that I enjoyed very much that made it to the table, that I have waited to play well over a year was Sid Meier’s Civilization, Tails of the Arabian Nights, and Le Havre. While 7 Wonders made my 5 & 10, I don’t care for it much, and have traded it away. While I will play it if my group wants to play it, I certain it will not make my 5 & 10 list next year. I predict that Quarriors will make it next year as well as Acquire as it is my #1 game of all time.
