  General News It's a FINAL! The 2014-2015 17 Days of Xmas Board Game Marathon is now complete

Well, we didn't break any records, but I was still sad when it came to an end. Here are the stats:

2014-2015 17 Days of Xmas Board Game Marathon Stats:


DAYS PLAYING GAMES: 17  (0)

TOTAL GAMES PLAYED: 62  (-15)

TOTAL DIFFERENT GAMES PLAYED: 38  (-5)

TOTAL UNIQUE PLAYERS: 25  (-4)

(last years difference in parenthesis) 

 

Other fun stats:

3 TIMES Sheena beat Dallas in a game.

0 TIMES Ford dropped dice all over the game room (yes, Ford managed to play in ONE game)

2 TIMES Karlene complained about the drinks not being cold

0 TIMES Karlene brought ICE for R2D2

0 Cars died at the house this year.

3 TRIES to get Star Wars Imperial Assault to the table during the event.

2 TIMES Renee made FRYBREAD

1 TIMES someone almost lost their native identity… you know who you are.

 

Most Valuable Player of this Board Game Marathon

 

My choice for MVP this year goes to: SHEENA J. - Sheena was there almost every day and never complained about playing anything. Sharon (Sheena) always brought the sugar too, proof positive that all women are evil. Shealee (Sheena) is a very competent gamer and never gives up even when the odds are against her.  

 

Other Notes:

 

Good food and good times through the entire 17 days. Thanks to everyone who participated.

I would also like to thank my wife Renee for making sure we had refreshments available throughout the duration of this event. 

 

 

 

UP COMING EVENTS:

 

MASSIVE LAN

I probably will not attend this event, but I wanted to give a plug to the guys outta Olean getting stuff done.

 

RUNNING GAGG


when: Friday JANUARY 30- Sunday FEBRUARY 1, 2015

where: Geneseo NY on the campus of SUNY Geneseo

where: Charlotte NC – you’re going to have to ask my travel agent Renee for details on hotel

  General News 17 Days of Christmas starts tomorrow!

It's that time of year again. I will be starting the 17 Days of Christmas tomorrow evening after work. I went back and checked the stats from last year and I started to wonder if we can break some of those records this year. Last year:

STATS FOR THE  2013-2014 HOLIDAY GAME MARATHON

DAYS PLAYING GAMES: 17
TOTAL GAMES PLAYED: 77
TOTAL DIFFERENT GAME PLAYED: 43
UNIQUE PLAYERS: 29

MOST PLAYED GAME: BOSS MONSTER WITH 7 PLAYS
NUMBER OF CARS THAT DIED AT OUR HOUSE: 2
NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH CONFUSED IDENTITIES: 2 OR IS IT 3?
NOW HERE IS A TRULY AMAZING STAT: NUMBER OF TIMES FORD DROPPED DICE ON FLOOR: 0
NUMBER OF TIMES AL DROPPED DICE/ASSORTED GAME PIECES ON THE FLOOR IN THE SPAN 
OF ONE GAME: 4
NUMBER OF BOTTLES OF MTN DEW DRANK: I SHOULDA BOUGHT STOCK IN PEPSI... LOTS,
R2D2 WAS FULL THE ENTIRE 17 DAYS.


Now, it's going to be hard to break some of these records. Unique players might be bit of a problem, I don't really advertise this event and most of the players I enjoyed having last year quit/dropped out of college and have real jobs now. 
Another thing that may be different this year is the type of games we get played. Light and fluffy for the most part won't be on the menu like last year. I plan on playing a lot more game that are in the heavier categories. Now, i'm not saying we are only playing heavy games and there will be no light and fluffies. 




UPCOMING EVENTS:

when: Friday JANUARY 30- Sunday FEBRUARY 1, 2015
where: Geneseo NY on the campus of SUNY Geneseo
other notes: we will be there all weekend.



LENNYCoN II
when: Friday February 13 - Sunday February 15, 2015
where: Charlotte NC - your going to have to ask my travel agent Renee for details on hotel
other notes: we will NOT have any extra room for this trip, so if you would like to attend, your are going to have to drive or caravan with us on the way down. There is no website link for this because you are already at the site.
