  1. Pete's Game Blog #17: How not to sell your games

    Deciding to sell games is a tough decision for any game, but especially for me. But my shelves are full and it's time to let some go. At 668 titles (not counting expansions) I can't even play them all in a year...or two years...or even probably five.

    Having decided to sell some of my games, I decided it was time to give some of them one last play and see if I could go through with it. The results follow:

  2. Pete's Game Blog #16: Gameday 6-8-14

    Despite calls for another day of Eclipse, the two most ardent proponents of the game, Jon and Trent, weren't able to come to this gameday. Brett came, though, and he showed up with this:

  3. Pete's Game Blog #15: Game Day 5/25/14

    After a terribly long hiatus, about 7 weeks during which we had only one gameday (and which I failed to blog about), we finally got the guys together yesterday for a little tabletop merriment. Jon, Trent and I started the day off with a playtest of a developmental game, which I don't think I can report on here because it hasn't been released yet.

    This is a combined post from the past two gamedays which spans three weeks because of the Games Plus Auction in the intervening week. I did not post following the 3/2/14 gameday because, frankly, we only played one new game and it didn't warrant a full post.

  5. Pete's Game Blog #13 - Game Day 2/23/14

    Game day yesterday was a small affair...only Alex and Anthony joined me. Still, we made good use of the time and had some quality fun.

    Perry Rhodan - the Cosmic League

    I covered this game in the previous post. I hadn't been to my basement in the intervening week, so it was still on the table when Anthony arrived, and Alex was running a bit late. So we played a game.

    We completely forgot a critical rule early on. When rolling for flight, all rolls ...
