2020 (Gaming) Year in Review

I didn’t play many board games this year, obviously.

Quarters — Bridge, 1862

Dimes — The Crew, Mottanai, Jump Drive, 1846, Res Arcana

There were no nickels. (Mage Knight got 4 plays, partially due to burnout but mainly because my gaming table is now my work table and its a pain to move everything). All told I played 30 different titles.

Admin Note — Broken Links

After posting around (and getting results in the support forums) I have a way to fix all my internal links that are broken (well, pointing to my old blog). But honestly¬† I don’t think I’m going to do it. Even if I wrote a program to fix all the links on my exported file, I then have to delete all the posts (which will probably take an hour or two) and re-import.¬† So all the links in the old summaries (and elsewhere) pointing to “gaming.powerblogs.com” are broken (or will be, starting Dec 1st). You’ll just have to guess what I was talking about and use the Great and Powerful Oz.

I don’t think it’s worth the time. Most of my readers aren’t new, anyway. All links after the import will work.

As for games played, the big winners are Roma (26), Geschenkt (24), Cash ‘n Guns (21), Shadowfist (16), Ticket to Ride (14 + 5 for Marklin), Fairy Tale (12), Caylus (7, not counting 100+ online), Twilight Struggle (7).

Seven Ages got two plays, but that’s 12 hours of gaming.
