Game Night 3

Month in Review – September 2016

Summer is finally at a close and fall is setting in here in Traverse City.  The start time of game night will definitely be moving up as the days will be getting shorter.  We had a busy month at the table which also included a little bit of traveling.  We went to our “local” board game convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan named Grand Con.  Lots of new games were played, enjoyed, and even purchased.  October is not without it’s excitement either.  We will be starting our horror themed game month which we have several new games to bring to the table and enjoy.

A few changes going forward to our game night and also to the monthly stats that I will be posting.  The amount of data is getting to be a bit overwhelming and I think is taking away from the overall concept of game night which is to be having fun.  I have paired down the amount of statistics this month and included a new one that is fast and simple to calculate which is each players gamer level.  This ranking is altered by your games played and games won.  I feel this is a great way to have players at a glance see who is the player to talk to if they have questions on a game when I’m not available.  Also in terms of game night itself I will be trying to bring in more lighting so we don’t have to shut down quite so early due to poor lighting.

Let’s get down to the numbers!
