June was not good as May. The reason of course was that the school had reopened and kids were not frequently available for gaming. So it was back to 2 player gaming mostly with Aarthi. The difference was that we played 23 different games in about 44 plays overall. So atleast I got to go through a major portion of my collection atleast once.
The hottest game of the month was Alhambra with 8 plays.
Mystery Rummy – Jack the Ripper, our no 1 two player game had 4 plays.
Carcassonne, Elasund & Puerto Rico had 3 plays each. I have had Carcassonne with me for a year now. It is growing on us as a very enjoyable 2 player game.
Balloon Cup, Elfenland, For Sale, Schildkroentenrennen and That’s Life had 2 plays each.
Bohnanza, Cartagena, Citadels, Hare & Tortoise, Loopin Louie, Louis XIV, Lowenherz, Maginor, New England, Ra, Settlers of Catan, Transeuropa, Zertz – 1 play each.
Louis XIV was the only new game we played last month. It was ok for a first play. We need to play a few more times to see if it will see the table more often. I am kind of resigned to playing it just 2 player with Aarthi. The thought of teaching it to some one is a nightmare!
Maginor must be the game least enjoyed by us so far. Absolutely boring game!
