.So we've said our goodbyes to 2019.
I've played lots of games and written plenty of blogs.
So below is summary of my gaming according to my quick calculations.
Number of different games played: 77.
Total number of gaming sessions: 171
Games I played the most in 2019:
So Port Royal came top and a worthy game it is too. I'm not sure if Machi Koro Legacy should count? We did play it 10 times, but that's only once through the 'legacy mode', well there it is. I've also decided to keep separate from standard Machi Koro.
Because I'm obviously very important, my opinion is equally important. So without further ado...
My game of the year: Wingspan.
A game that has some depth but is also accessible with a reasonable play length and interesting subject matter. It doesn't hurt that it has high quality production values and component.
When all are combined, it makes Wingspan a great experience.
My worst game of the year: Hit Z Road.
This game is equal parts fantastic production values and fantastically broken auction mechanics, so bad that it kills the game stone dead in my opinion.
My initial urge is to say. "Did anyone play test this?". But I know they. Which means that the awful auctions must be there for some confounding reason.
I just can't fathom why?
Surprise of the year: Heckmeck/Pickomino.
When this little game came along, I was instantly impressed.
A push your luck dice game that frequently gives players tricky decisions to make.
It proved popular with pretty much everyone I play games with. That I only bought the game in late October and it made it into my top 5 is proof.
Big fun in a small package.
These are the RPGs I played/ran in 2019.
Different RPGs: 7.
RPG Sessions: 51.
