  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.

  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.

  General News Summer 2014 Update

Now that summer is over and school is back in action, I can get back to business. My summer was a busy one, played a ton of board games!

So, I've been thinking about forming a game group that would play on a regular basis that is open to the public. I was thinking of doing something like the Rochester Boardgames Society (RBS). Meet on the 4th Saturday of the month at a neutral location (which we would have to secure or negotiate with). I was thinking about also giving it a name: Enchanted Mountains Game Society? Let me know what you think.

 CONVENTIONS:

location: Buffalo Niagara Convention Center - downtown Buffalo NY
when: September 19-21, 2014
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this will be the second year we attended this convention, the first year we attended as guests.

location: SUNY Geneseo, Geneseo NY
when: January 30 - February 1, 2015
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this will be our 598409586405694 time we have attended this convention. Look forward to another great year.

location: what ever hotel we decide to stay in when we get to Charlotte, NC
when: February 13-16, 2015 - President's Day Weekend
are we attending?: yes
Games Asylum with booth?: yes
other notes: this is our convention for Lenny Hayes who lives too far from us! This will be our 2nd convention and we hold in the lobby/open area of the hotel we stay at. Last year's was a BLAST. There is no event list, we play what we want when we want, all games, all weekend and eat good food. If anyone is interested in attending contact Renee to find out where we will be.




There are some other conventions in the Fall in various areas around us, but I have not decided to attend any of these at the time I write this.
