I just wanted to share this with you all today. It’s a shelfie that I took of the current selection of games, after a bit of reorganisation at the weekend.
It’s by no means all the games I own, as there are plenty more up in the loft, or under the bed, but I have been trying to get a bit of a wider selection here so that they can be accessed and enjoyed! It’s now that time of year when I am really partial to a sit down with a big game, like Runebound or A Touch of Evil, so I’m looking forward to potentially getting more games with these in soon!
I’m one of the crazy folks who logs all my board game plays over on boardgamegeek, and looking at those stats, I’m quite horrified to see that it’s been almost 8 years since I played Runebound, and 6 years since I last played A Touch of Evil! These are two of my absolute favourites, so I definitely want to try and get a couple of games with each of them before the end of the year. I’ve had a lot of fun getting stuff like the new Arkham Horror to the table lately, and while I have definitely morphed into more of a card gamer than a board gamer over the years, I do still have a soft spot for these big games that take over the table!
I actually had a surprise game of Eldritch Horror the other day, just using the base game, and that was a lot of fun as well. So I’m fully intending to try to get more games to the table as time goes on, anyway. It’s great having game nights when the nights are drawing in. It’s only coincidental that I have a fair few horror-themed games and we’re approaching Halloween, as I’m not really into all of that myself, but I suppose it does help to bring those games to the table!
I’m really looking forward to Runebound though. It’s one of the classics of the genre, for me, and I really can’t believe it’s been so long since I had a game with it. I suppose my obsession with Games Workshop has overtaken me though, and I’ve moved away from a lot of the more regular gaming.
For now, though, I have about a dozen games that I can get to without foraging in boxes in the loft, or furtling under the bed, so I’m looking forward to more game nights as the autumn turns into winter!
