Top Games Played in 2017 – Honourable Mentions

I managed to play 100 games in 2017. That’s a record for me, I think. Some were new to me (58 of them) while others were old favourites.

Seven of my Top 10 games played were actually new to me, so they couldn’t have appeared on my list last year.

When I was going through the 100 games, I marked off the games that I felt might make my Top 10 and then checked to see how many I had chosen. Turns out that I had chosen 16. From that, I formed my Top 10, but that leaves 6 really cool games that could conceivably have made the Top 10 but didn’t quite do so.

So why not tell you what those are?

Hell, I need content, so why not?

Here they are, the Top 11-16 games I played last year, in no particular order.

New to Me – July 2017

It was a fairly lean month for new games, which involved me missing one of my game days due to illness.

But four is not a bad number! I love doing a mix of old favourites and “new to me” games. But I’m not “Cult of the New.” It doesn’t have to be a new game necessarily. Just new to me.

As you can see from a 4-year old game on my list!

Once again, there is one semi-brain burner on my list. It seems that I always have to challenge myself at least a little bit.

It’s also my favourite new game of the month.

So let’s get to the good stuff.

Funnily enough, the first of two Alexander Pfister-designed games on my July play list. I had no idea I had become a fan!
