Last Year – 2019

For my birthday party last year, I wanted to play board games for a day. This was the first, now annual, board game birthday party. We ended up starting around noon, playing a long game called Civilization: A New Dawn Board Game. It was a long, mediocre game. Then we played a game of Star Wars Original Trilogy Risk, which ended up being 15 minutes… Then the party was over.

Overall Rating 3/10 An attempt was made

This Year – 2020

First, I bought my own birthday present this year, because this game looked so fun. This game is called Project Elite. It is a real-time, co-operative game, where you all roll dice as fast as you can in 2-minute turns to try to fight back a large horde of aliens. The game comes with Miniatures for the heroes and aliens, so I got to paint all the minis before my party:

This year, we played:

  • Don’t Get Got
  • Project Elite: 6 games (only 1 loss)
  • INIS: 2 epic games…. (Ross won both)
  • Secret Voldemort (4 games)
  • The Crew: ( 4 attempts, 1 win)
  • Wavelength
  • Azul

We pretty much started playing Friday Night, then some friends slept over, and we woke up early to play from ~9:00 am straight through to after midnight.

I gave everyone a “Don’t Get Got” packet around noon on Saturday. It was the cherry on top of a great day of games.

Overall Rating: 10/10: Epic fun was had by all.
