The First "Dime" of 2010

February is "work on the Five & Dime Report" Month... there are more folks this (over 300) which should yield some great results but also mean I've got a lot of data compiling to do.

In my own gaming life, I've managed to reach my first "dime" (game played 10+ times) in 2010 by the end of January: Gelini Nightlife.

Don't be ashamed if you haven't heard of it - it was simply a BGG conversation about Essen games that brought it to my attention when Joe "Burger Joint" Huber & Dale "Dominion evangelist" Yu both strongly recommended that I pick up a copy. I arrived in mid-January and promptly became the most played game in my collection for the year.

I'll do a full review in the next week or so, but it's a Knizia-designed game, adapted from one of his earlier published designs (Tutankhamen) and made less math-y and more fun.

Other games that have been played extensively in the first 37 days of 2010:
  • Das Magische Labyrinth 6
  • Alea Iacta Est 5
  • Dungeonquest 5
  • Keltis: Der Weg der Steine (Mitbringspiel) 5
  • The Adventurers 4
  • Click Clack 4
  • Enuk the Eskimo 4
  • Heroscape Master Set: Battle for the Underdark 4
  • Marrakech 4
  • StreetSoccer 4

I enjoyed it more with my second play. It really is a good little game.
