Hey there gamers! I thought it would be fun to end the year with a little Top 100 List!I hadn't updated my top 10 page in a while, and knew it was time, then I thought, why not just do a quick comparison of all the things I've rated on BGG? :)
I used this nifty site here and ... voila! Top 100! These are just some games I love (no expansions included), from all different years, ranked, and some with a little snippet. I plan to try and do this every year to see how much things change, or if I'm pretty consistent. Feel free to let me know what some of your top games are, or make suggestions for me based on things I like - I'm always looking for more games!! It's gonna be a long one, so buckle in!
Happy Gaming, and Happy New Year, folks!

Giving the gift of games this holiday season? Sick! … Don’t get sick. It just is sick. Clearly I am down with the lingo of the times…
Anyway! It’s always fun to try and get more people into board games with a starter game, or get the gamer in your life some nice accessories for their current favorites. Whether it’s for a Secret Santa, a stocking stuffer, a gift for bae, or something else entirely, here are some awesome gift ideas for gamers all under $25! Even fancier, I've linked to BGG pages in the titles, and sites for purchase in the descriptions. You are so welcome. Let's GOOOO!
Another awesome GenCan't "convention" is in the books! There's not a whole lot I can say about it other than it was a lot of fun to have my friends over, bake some cool meeple cookies, and play a lot of games all weekend! No crowds, no lines, just a ton of fun (not to knock GenCon, cause that also looks like a ton of fun! haha). No vendors, on the downside, but we were able to go thrifting and hit up Target and Gamestop clearance sales and grab a few newbies!
Mostly I just wanted to share my photos of the weekend here, so please enjoy! Did you do anything fun for GenCon or GenCan't? Leave some comments!
*Side note - I'm thinking of opening a new Twitter page for just board game items - live tweeting plays, images, and links to the blog of course. Thoughts?
Have you ever played a game that was just a tad cheesy? Had a weird theme? Maybe was a little too obscure for your group? Then welcome to the club! I first discovered that CW&O games were kind of their own genre thanks to the Flip the Table Podcast. They played a lot of great cheesy games, and had a lot of fun doing so, which definitely got me more interested in them as a whole! This past weekend my friends and I participated in their International Cheesy Games Day by playing a bunch of these goodies and really getting into the cheesy spirit! I wanted to post about not only the fun that I had, but also the general goodness that is CW&O games, in hopes that others can enjoy them tons too!
If you ask almost anyone who knows me, they will certainly tell you that I love food. I love to cook, bake, and definitely eat. As food is one of my favorite things, when you combine that with gaming, I'm probably going to be very interested! While, of course, I haven't played every food-themed game that there is, I have found a few awesome ones along the way, and if you're a food and game love like me, I highly recommend them all!
