As last month I'll run down the list of games in order of player time, although I'll try not to repeat myself with regards to comments on games that crop up frequently.
Moving on to number 8, we have Istanbul, followed by Canyon, Santiago de Cuba and Deus. All these games have been played at least 3 times this year (including Saturday play) next is Bruges & Caylus Magna Carta. At 14 is Santiago, which I must admit I thought had been played more, but this was only the second time it has been played, the one previous play being in October 2010 when Andy E brought it to the table, I think maybe I've seen it around several times without it actually being played.
Number 15 is Carcassonne, played twice this month meaning it moves up to number 4 in the overall list based on games played (with 43). At 16 is Legendary which is followed by Pizzaro & Co., also known as Magellan, which was played for the first time at the club, despite being 13 years old, this one was brought by Scott. This is followed by Love Letter (as last month one play each of Batman & The Hobbit), then Blueprints and Race for the Galaxy (overall number 5 in terms of games played 1 behind Carcassonne & 1 ahead of Industrial Waste).
Rounding out the list is Splendor (with the most plays of any game so far in 2015), then San Juan (first edition) followed by Diamonds which is the other new game this month, then Katzenjammer Blues and lastly Coloretto.
In all, the 133.33 player hours for the month is the highest for Wednesday play for the year so far and the 30 games played is the highest for August since records began, although the 2 new games played is the lowest for some time, in fact up until the last week no new games had been played. I have posted a geeklist here and all the results are on the Stats page for August. The table of games played is reproduced below.
|Game||Games||Time (Mins.)||Player Time|
|The Voyages of Marco Polo||3||350||21.83|
|Santiago de Cuba||2||110||5.50|
|Caylus Magna Carta||1||80||4.00|
|Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game||1||60||3.00|
|Pizzaro & Co.||1||45||3.00|
|Race for the Galaxy||1||30||2.00|
