            BGG Con 2018

            While I attended BGG Con Spring, this was my first BGG Con Fall, and true to what I'd been told, the difference really was night and day. I had a great time at BGG Spring, but I think it's safe to say I'm going to do my best to not miss another BGG Fall ever, especially since they're moving out of the Hyatt Airport (which they've out-grown, and which has a really annoying parking system, and expensive food) and into downtown (bigger space, easier access to restaurants, no dealing with the crazy validated parking weirdness).

            I went in with a list of 38 games. I played 9 of them and saw 8 of the other played or at looked into them. I also played 14 other games that weren't on my list, and added more.

            My Top 10 of the Show:
            1. Blackout Hong Kong
            2. Dice Settlers
            3. Gizmos
            4. Pioneer Days
            5. Western Legends
            6. Detective - A Modern Crime Board Game
            7. Monster Crunch
            8. Welcome To...
            9. Guardians
            10. The Table is Lava

            Games I Never Saw:

            I saw some of these in box or on someone's table, but never really investigated them at all. In some cases because I knew I had a demo copy waiting for me at home.

            Arboretum
            Batman Gotham Under Siege
            Coimbra
            Deckscape: Heist in Venice
            Dragon Boats
            Everdell
            Forbidden Sky
            Grackles
            Great Western Trail
            Kitchen Rush
            My Little Scythe
            Orbis
            Pantone
            Petrichor
            Reef
            Rise of Tribes
            Root
            Snow Time
            Starship Samurai
            The Mind
            The River

            Games I Took Off My List:

            Atlandice 
            Saw it, decided it was a little simpler, aimed at younger players, than I wanted

            Dinosaur Tea Party 
            Saw it, decided it was more party game/casual than I wanted

            Terraforming Mars
            I want to play more of this, but it was a little long for a Con game since it's currently easily available

            Games I Saw Played or Read the Rules:

            Before There Were Stars
            Saw this demoed by a company rep, it's a storytelling game I want to play

            Brass Birmingham 
            Saw a group playing it, seems like a long game and not my cup of tea

            Disney Villainous 
            Checked it out from the library, learned the rules, it looks like fun

            Gunkimono 
            Checked it out from the library, learned the rules, made it a low priority

            Teotihuacan City of the Gods
            Saw several people played it, looks too complex for me but I heard lots of good stuff about it

            Tower of Madness
            Saw a group playing it, it was interesting design, but I heard it wasn't great

            Games I Played:

            Blackout Hong Kong 
            Played it, fell in love, definitely buying it when it hits the store

            Catch the Moon
            Dexterity game where you put ladders on top of one another, liked this a lot

            Detective A Modern Crime Board Game
            Played about 30 minutes, most of my group wasn't into it, I fell instantly in love and will definitely buy it

            Guardians 
            Played it as a demo with one of the playtesters, really liked it, it's the Overwatch card game I wanted

            Holding On The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr
            Played out the first scenario, it's interesting but I don't know that it would quite make purchase level for me

            Mesozoic
            Played it, fun and quick game where you build a dinosaur park using a real-time sliding puzzle mechanic

            Shadows Amsterdam
            Kind of a mix of Mysterium and Codenames, interesting but not quite sure I'd buy it because I'm only a mild Mysterium fan and I was terrible at this game

            War Chest
            Really liked this one, great components, simple design, good strategy game

            Not Yet In Print:

            These were games I saw either in the library or the exhibition hall, and they're on my list to check out when they come out, probably in 2019.

            Agents of Mayhem
            Blue Lagoon
            Bosk
            Cupcake Empire
            Detective Club
            Feudum
            Imperius
            Kami-Sama
            Museum
            Onimaru
            Sonar Family
            Underwater Cities

            Games I Played That Weren't On My List:

            Dice Chase
            A simple dice game of planning ahead, chess-like. I was terrible at it.

            Dice Settlers
            Dice-based resource management game, one of my favorites

            Fake Artist Goes to New York
            Simple party game where one person doesn't know what everyone else is supposed to be drawing, Spyfall-like

            Fortune
            A teach-as-you-go game in the vein of Flee, Fear, and Fortress

            Ganymede
            Described to me as Splendor in space, it's a little more complicated than that but interesting, coming out next year

            Gizmos
            This one actually was Splendor like, resource management with marbles, I loved it and bought it at the show

            Impact: Battle of the Elements
            Simple dice game, a good one for between games at a game night

            Jungle Smarts
            Simple deduction game using wooden animals... good game. I was terrible at it.

            Memoarrr!
            Also a simple deduction/memory game, really good for younger players. This was one of the free games I got as an attendee.

            Monster Crunch
            A licensed game from General Mills. Great artistic design, simple and fun. I bought this one.

            Neon Gods
            The cyberpunk future of 2009, as you use gangs for area control. Fun.

            Nyctophobia
            Game where one player is the serial killer, the others are his potential victims and wear blindfold glasses, trying to find their way to safety using touch. Neat idea, not my kind of game.

            Pandemic Fall of Rome
            Another flavor of Pandemic, this one has an interesting combat mechanic. I liked it.

            Pikoko
            Trick-taking game where you see everyone's hand but your own, and there's a bidding mechanic where you guess who is going to win the most tricks. Fun.

            Pioneer Days
            Dice builder where you are pioneers in the old west, one of my favorite games of the show

            Plums
            Simple trick-taking game that I liked a lot

            The Big Score
            Love the theme (heists), love the art design, the game was merely OK

            The Faceless
            Game that used magnets to simulate a "kids in the dark Faerie realm" type mechanic. Interesting mechanics, not a great game.

            The Table is Lava
            Really fun Meeple-based dexterity game. Bought it, played it with my kids.

            Western Legends
            An epic open world western game, one of my favorites at the show. Very likely to buy it.

            Welcome to Your Perfect Home 
            Really enjoyed this, kickstarted the reprint to come in next year

            Games I Bought Or Got:

            Empires of the Void II
            Expancity

                                                                                                                New Year's Resolutions 2018

                                                                                                                2016 was pretty terrible. I'm not prepared to say 2017 was worse. I mean, a lot less famous people I admired died, I lost another friend but I'm getting older so I'm getting used to the idea that's going to happen more often. And I at least had the benefit of knowing that Trump was President instead of being blindsided in November.

                                                                                                                But... this was a rough, rough year. I had one of the worst weeks of my life this year. The political situation was horrifying and exhausting. Expect the worst became the norm.

                                                                                                                Silver linings? Yeah. A couple are mine, private things. But I made several really close new friendships and a lot more extended friendships. We expanded my store into a new location in June, which was exhausting and scary and resulted in some debt I'm still a little worried about but overall has been really rewarding. And this was my second year cancer-free.

                                                                                                                Time for 2018 resolutions, and time to check in on last year.

                                                                                                                Last year's resolutions:

                                                                                                                1. Cook More - I tried out several new recipes, although I didn't have many that stuck.

                                                                                                                2. Exercise - Nope. Failed again.

                                                                                                                3. No Cancer - This one I got.

                                                                                                                By The Numbers:

                                                                                                                1. I read almost 600 single-issue comics this year, as compared to about 700 the year before, and 52 graphic novels, which is less than the year before.

                                                                                                                2. I ate at 93 different restaurants this year. On average, I ate out about 27 times a month, which is more than last year.

                                                                                                                3. I played 35 new boardgames.

                                                                                                                This Year's Food Plans:

                                                                                                                Places I Need to Try:

                                                                                                                Sometime in 2018:
                                                                                                                Loro (Asian Smokehouse from Uchi/Aaron Franklin)
                                                                                                                24 Diner (Rock Rose)
                                                                                                                Easy Tiger (The Linc)

                                                                                                                This Year's Resolutions & Goals:

                                                                                                                1. Cook More - I need to add some new recipes in. Specifically, I need to learn to use the Instant Pot. I'm going to try to make at least one new Instant Pot recipe a week until that inevitably falls off and I scale back to once a month.

                                                                                                                2. Read More - I utterly failed at reading books and graphic novels this year. So my goal is an achievable 48 graphic novels and novels combined. One a week.

                                                                                                                3. First Game Con. This one's easy, I already have tickets to BGG Con in May.

                                                                                                                4. Boardgames. My plan this year is to play 25 new boardgames. I've exceeded that the past two years.

                                                                                                                5. Write More. I have a notebook with 300 Writing Prompts. It's meant as a kind of journal, but I'm going to write it from the POV of fictional characters. If I skip 65 days in there, I'll still fill the notebook. The plan is to aim for every day. The looser plan is to slowly build up a universe in which to tell stories, and if that works, I might do Nanowrimo in that universe. Probably next year. Maybe this year. Depends how ambitious I'm feeling.
