Game of the Month – October 2012

This month I managed 23 plays of 17 titles, 14 of which were new to me. The new games were Libertalia, Escape: Curse of the Temple, Rune Age, Doctor Who: The Card Game, Smash Up, Lady Alice, Love Letter, AttrAction, Drecksau, Rondo, Spellbound, Suburbia, Hanabi and Hooyah: Navy Seals Card Game.

As it was Essen month, I added 33 new games to the collection and my unplayed list has rocketed up to 30. As for game of the month, I’m going for the smallest game of all, Love Letter, which is just made up of 16 cards. That’s it. However, the game play is really smooth and it is a great game to play with Jan (not only for the reason that she keeps beating me). Just the thing when you’ve got just 15-20 minutes to spare and limited space. Easily playable on a train or aeroplane table.
