Ashton’s 2nd Board Game Birthday Party

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.

Christmas Decorations 2019

One of the requests from the family we bought our house from was to decorate well for Christmas. We did an okay job last year but with some effort not a lot of extra Christmas lights we did better this year. We’re going to need a lot more lights for next year.
