Let me know if you want to me to bring out a specific game: Game List

Some campaigns and Pandante. Not bad. Would the campaigns count as repeat plays towards the 15x5 goal?

(How long was Alchemists?  :lol )

Yeah, each game of a campaign game is one play. So I think Mechs Vs Minions has 10 levels/games, Pandemic is between 12-24. Can't remember what Krosmaster Quest has...
I think the last game of Alchemists was 3 hours, but I have it in the database as 2, so I either need to change it in the database for all plays, or disregard the discrepancy because of rules relearning.

Magic Number to 0

I don't know how many games I own that I haven't played.  Our games are stored in different places around our basement, and some are still in tote bags from taking them around to parties over the holidays.  I am hoping to get them all better organized and tracked on bgg within a few weeks.  I will add what my current number is once that happens.
