    As has become a tradition at WAGS, my gaming year in review:Last year I played ~136 times (136 "plays") allowing me to play an average of about a game every three days.I played 60 different games, of which 29, or almost exactly half, were new to me. My most played game was, surprisingly, Warfighter by DVG, at ten plays, followed very closely by Band of Brothers: Ghost Panzer and Red Winter, tied for second at eight plays each. Yes, I love wargames.My most played eurogame was 7 Wonders with four plays, and my most played heavier euro was Archipelago, with three.In 2013, I had played 139 games,…

    Dance your way to the win with hundreds of hilarious dance moves like: opening a present, playing an accordion, riding a horse. On your turn take a dance card while the game's DJ starts 40 seconds of music using the Dance Charades CD. If someone guesses your move and there's still time, take another card and keep on dancing. When time's up, you score a point for each move that was correctly guessed. At the end of the game the player with the most points wins! But listen up!

    Also, in the spirit of post-action reports now that the blog is dead, I wanted to share a few comments on Clash of Cultures (which I played with Shemp last week):- I found it to be a really good game, better than the Sid Meier one in most ways. - the design is cleaner and more logical than the other Civ. for these reasons, learning it is easier despite the fact that there are probably more rules in this one. - there is a certain amount of randomness introduced through events that some might have a problem with. In the game we played it seemed like a nice addition because it forced players to…
  • The World-Ending Year in Review: 2012

    Kozure
    2 Jan 2013 | 9:26 am
    Well, the world didn't end for many reasons, not the least of which was that the Mayans never said it would end, but that didn't stop the breathless media frenzy... it never does!I (personally) played 86 different games in 165 discrete sessions this year, up by around 30 sessions from the year before, which surprises me. Curiously (and coincidentally), almost exactly the same number of different games. Of those, 39 games were new to me. I have no idea how many we played as a WAGS group - probably between 60-70 different games - I'm only going from my BGG played games stats log, and I've…

    11 Dec 2012 | 9:30 am
    The game of the week, chosen by Pablo "No Nickname" H., was Battlestar Galactica (no expansion).I like BSG. It has a certain feel - a combination of gritty, "let's make the hard decisions" resource management and paranoia that you don't quite get from any other game. Shadows Over Camelot wasn't bad, but got a little tiresome, and Panic Station had too many thematic problems for me to enjoy. I haven't played "The Resistance", the other candidate for the tinfoil hat prize for paranoia in gaming, but I suspect that it would be less engaging without the opportunity to push little models of Vipers…

  • Introducing The Hive Mind

    admin
    21 Jan 2015 | 10:19 am
    This Sunday I had the chance to meet with Gjon Feinstein, Mike Splane, and Eric Montany at a coffeehouse to go over my recent game with Ivan Ke. (See this post for some earlier discussion of the game.) We tore apart and dissected the game until there were only the smallest bones left, and I learned a lot from the collective wisdom of three National Masters. I will refer to all three of them together as The Hive Mind. I’m doing that partly to be funny, but also to give them plausible deniability. If they got something wrong, they can always blame it on the other two members of the…
  • Dinosaurs Roam the Earth in Dublin

    20 Jan 2015 | 12:49 pm
    I did not go to the Golden State Open in Dublin, California, last weekend. I have a lot of work this month and couldn’t prepare properly for a chess tournament. But I wish I had! It looks as if it was a great tournament, although not quite as loaded with strong players as the New Year Championship was. One of the interesting things about the tournament was that two people came back from long absences to win prizes. One of them was Nicolas Yap, a 2300 level player who finished fourth in the open section. He had not played rated chess since 2008. I don’t know him at all, but…
  • Top Chess States (Take Two)

    admin
    16 Jan 2015 | 1:05 pm
    I wasn’t completely happy with my post yesterday about the top chess states, because the measure I used (number of players over 2500) is skewed to the very high end of the spectrum of chess players. Half of the states don’t even have a player rated 2500. Also, the statistic is unduly influenced, in my opinion, by a relatively small number of foreign or out-of-state players who may come to a state to study but don’t contribute all that much to the “chess culture” in that state. So here is my second try at measuring the top ten chess states in America. This time I…
  • Top Chess States

    admin
    15 Jan 2015 | 10:49 am
    What do you think are the strongest chess states in the country? I think that most chess players would be able to guess the top state, maybe even the top two or top three. But what surprises me is how close the competition is. Fifty years ago, it would have been New York in a runaway. Now it’s New York by a very slim margin. I think this says something about chess’s increasingly solid demographic base across the country. I decided to rank all of the states according to the current number of players rated 2500 or stronger, with the first tiebreaker being the number of players rated…

    Let’s now turn our attention from the microscopic to the monumental … in fact, to the future of chess. I’ve been waiting for the right time to mention that there is a project in the works to make a movie about the (first) Millionaire Chess Open, Maurice Ashley’s grand experiment last year at running a tournament with a million-dollar prize fund. The documentary would (will?) be called “Pushing Wood.” The director would be (will be?) a filmmaker named Jeffrey Plunkett. And, to cut to the chase, Plunkett is running a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo. I know…

    The Sicilian Najdorf DefensePosted on January 23,2015 By GM Levan Aroshidze in Strategy & Game Review, Chess Openings, General Chess Articles, Beginner's Corner. The Sicilian Defense is the biggest and most complex setup of all chess openings. It is a semi-open playing system, in which Black tries to avoid the classic playing manner for equalizing the game and immediately starts an uncompromising fight for initiative. From the first moves, we get unbalanced pawn structures and very dynamic positions. The Sicilian Defense is separated into numerous sub-variations like the Najdorf, Dragon,…

  • A Jule Surprise

    12 Jan 2015 | 4:25 am
    The past week has been a Chinese trifecta. Zhao Jun won the Hastings tournament, Ni Hua pulverized almost everyone at the Aussie Open and then there's also Zhao Xue who bagged the Kiwi Open. The two Zhaos winning were complete surprises. After all, they weren't exactly the favourites.But here's another surprise. Out of the blue, I've just learnt that Australia's WIM Alexandra Jule is a New Zealand champion! Well, joint champion at least anyway. It turns out that she holds dual nationality, Kiwi and Australian. And by virtue of her 6 points, among a group of locals on a similar score, WIM Jule…

    I meant to post something about the ongoing Aussie Chess Open much earlier, but with the rush to head back to Tokyo and immediately having to start work after a very non-Japanese 3-week vacation, this post is much delayed.In fact, I actually turned up for the first round and live tweeted direct from the event. That was a first for me (live tweeting), and I think more events should probably do it. Tweeting, or live blogging as I once did many moons ago, always gives an extra dimension to a tournament. Despite recent advances in video coverage, there's something about the burst of text…

Thanks to Apple, I can do this, last night's World Championship game that ended it all for Vishy ("screwed"). That is my iPad tethered to my iPhone. And in case you're wondering, the red is a not too shabby Chilean merlot.When I tweeted this last night, a couple of folks asked me what the app is. It is Playchess for the iOS, which is not too bad. I like the game board. But I think the Chess24 app is way better overall. Chess24's game board is not to my liking but you get…

Last year, it took until game five before we saw a decisive result. Honestly, why do we even bother?Early this morning on Twitter I was amused to see a number of experts - GMs, journos and even an ex-World Champion herself - offer suggestions to the Anand camp. That perhaps Vishy should re-strategise and get a shrink. GM Jonathan Tisdall suggests that the Indian should play like, well, Vishy; that is, the younger, fearless Vishy. Play the Sicilian,…

    Another classic Grapevine post from February 2007... for the record, today is one of those "33 1/3 record in a 78 rpm world" days as well. Remember record players? Yes, I know that some of you don't... that the only record player you've actually seen used in the one in the hatch on the TV show, Lost. But for some of us, there's a certain warm glow around the memories of picking up an album & sliding out the sleeve, carefully putting the record on the turntable & setting the needle down. Depending on the size of the record, you set the speed - 33 1/3, 45, or 78 rpm's (revolutions per…

The Out of the Box production is very nice as well. Tips & Tricks: Use Fly Out cards when there aren't any runners on base. This is a tremendous filler game. Extras This game lends itself to playoffs/tournaments at gaming weekends - games are short enough to be held between "real" games. The story…

Tips & Tricks: There's a heavy "take that" element in this game that I normally don't like it - but it works here.
