Someone over in the Bank of Canada appreciates games. Not only does Canada's new $10 bill feature civil rights icon Viola Desmond in a cool new vertical orientation, when you rotate the bill 20x on the Bank of Canada website you get to play a classic game hidden as an easter egg. :)

Centennial School is starting a boardgame club and I'm trying to find cheap, used copies of 7 Wonders, Lords of Waterdeep and Bohnanza that I can buy and donate to the group.  Let me know if you're moving any of those titles along!

Thanks!

The program coordinator (Mary-Lou Van De Bon) at the Glen Elm Library is setting up a "Bored Game" Night and is looking for a copy of Catan as something geared for older teams. If you have a copy you'd like to donate please let me know and I will work out the details of getting it to her.

Yep, it's that time of the year again.  You can check out last year's ideas and results here for those of you still playing along.


This year I'm going to do a revised version of playing all the un-played games in my collection.  I'm going to start the list with everything that's un-played as of Jan 1, 2017 and then NOT add any acquisitions as the year goes along; I'll track those separately on a different list.  I'll also be tracking all the "new to me" games this year while trying to beat my 129 new plays from this year.  For total plays I'm aiming for 500 again (478 currently with 2 days to go) and for a bit of fun I'm going to do both a 25X5 and an alphabet challenge in 2017.

Lori's List
  • Play the un-played games in my collection (BGG geeklist to follow)
  • Play 150 "new to me" games (BGG geeklist to follow)
  • Log 500 plays in 2017
  • Complete a 25X5 challenge
  • Complete an alphabet challenge

What's everybody else planning for 2017?

So this is pretty cool.  You can ask it to get the info from your BGG account and then set the parameters.  It will choose a game menu for you that you can print out at your event.

Here's one it made for Light Games:
