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.
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.
The is the total number of hours I have played board games so far this year.
The number of different board games I have played this year so far.
The number of games this year that I’ve only played once. Note to self: must play these more!
The percentage of my board game collection I have played. Note that I record plays of games I own as well as games I don’t own; this figure is only looking at games I own.
The total number of plays of games designed by Antoine Bauza.
The number of times I have played my most played game this year. This is for the game 7 Wonders which we bought new near the beginning of the year and was an instant hit with several people I play games with.
The total number of plays of games designed by Reiner Knizia.
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!
The number of friends and family who have played board games with me this year. After all, it’s not just about the games – I play games as a social activity! Thank you all, you know who you are! 🙂
