New to Me – January 2020 (Part 1)

It’s a brand new year! And this time, I can actually say that while talking about 2020 games (unlike last month).

January was a busy month for new-to-me games. I went to two conventions on back-to-back weekends (that was a lot of fun but also very tiring). At least they weren’t long drives!


I did kind of feel a bit out of it after the second one, though.

The Cult of the New to Me was really happy with me, though. There weren’t even any attempted coups!

Maybe a few too many 2019 games for their tastes, but there are a number of 2017 and 2018 games in there (and even a 2009 game in the next part!)

Next part?

Yes, I said next part.

I played a grand total of 28 games in January (34 plays). Fifteen of them were new to me games. There is no way all of them are going to fit in one post.

Thus, this is only Part 1.

Part 2 will be coming.

This also means that the descriptions of the games will probably be a bit briefer than usual. Maybe I should actually do that for all of these posts.

We’ll see.

So without further adieu (all of my adieu was traded for some water on an alien planet anyway), let’s get started!

New to Me – December 2019

Happy New Year!

As we start the new year here at the Cult of the New to Me, we want to look back at the previous month, because looking back is what we do!

That’s right. We never talk about the new to me games that we’re going to play. We always look at what we just did.

Some would say that we’re stuck in the past, but I say those who don’t study the past are doomed to repeat it!

Yes, I just made that up. Insightful, isn’t it? (Editor – Hey, Dave. George Santayana on Line 1)

I think I’m pretty much as insightful as Abraham Lincoln.

Anyway, we do like to look back here at Cult Headquarters, and right now we’re looking back at December!

So without further adieu (all of my adieu got traded at some Baghdad market stall for a gold guild ring anyway), let’s get this show on the road!
