The First Half of 2014: Board Games and Numbers

Pandemic - Saving the world from disease one cube at a time!

Jobby likes numbers. And he likes board games. As June 2014 ends he takes a look at the year so far for him, in numbers …

I record all of the board games I play on the website www.boardgamegeek.com. I know this is a bit geeky but I have fun looking at the numbers and what I can get out of them. Here’s the numbers for 2014 up to the end of June.

184

The number of board games I have played this year so far. This is total plays, even if a game has been played more than once.

135

The is the total number of hours I have played board games so far this year.

88

The number of different board games I have played this year so far.

54

The number of games this year that I’ve only played once. Note to self: must play these more!

53.2

24

11

10

The most games played in a single day. Interestingly this wasn’t our International Tabletop Day at which I played 9 games. This was just a day I’d organised with some mates. It also included a game of Arkham Horror which we won in record time!
