Dragonwood is a winner

This quiz picture should be easy to deduce.

Last time the picture was of the top of the gameboard of Caylus, recognised by two people.

Last week we played the following games at the club.

As it was the clubs 3rd birthday last week instead of doing a spotlight on a game I will just give you some stats, apologies if you follow us on facebook I have written something very similar there.

This year we have played 470 games (a slight increase of 2.8% on the previous year), there were 273 different games played 177 of which had only a single play. The most popular game this year was Dragonwood with 9 plays, narrowly beating Cockroach Poker which had 8 plays.

Usually the top places are taken by the fun light games for the obvious reasons that not only are they easy to play short playing time fillers but they are also FUN and therefore people enjoy playing them, normally there are usually a couple of heavier games that stand out however it is Scythe that stands alone this year at 4 plays all other games being mid-weight.

Over the 3 years we have been going, the club has played a staggering 1167 games with Sushi Go! at 17 plays being in top position whilst Russian Railroads takes top heavy game with 8 plays. 496 different titles have been played, interestingly the top 10 games account for just over 10% of all the games played, whilst just under 60% (59.6%) of the games have only been played once.

I am hoping that for the next year we will break 500 games in a year, will Sushi Go! hold on to the title after our 4th birthday I hope so it is a lovely game and deserves its crown?
