January 2015 books and games

#51in15, #50bookchallenge

Books (#50bookchallenge)

#1: NPCs by Drew Hayes (m)
#2: Silas Marner by George Eliot  (f)
#3: Confessions of a D-List Supervillain by Jim Bernheimer (m)
#4: The Midwife’s Here, by Linda Fairley (f)

This year, I’m marking my books with (m) or (f) for male or female authors. Anonymous/non-binary/unidentified authors and books with more than 2 authors will not be marked. My goal is to have half the gender-identified authors I read this year be female.

In-progress: Lisey’s Story

Games (#51in15)

#1: Pass the Pigs (<30 minute, 2 players)
#2: 13th Age (5 players, rpg)
#3: Night’s Black Agents (5 players, rpg)
#4: Tanto Cuore: Romantic Vacation (2 players)
#5: Mice and Mystics (4 players)
#6: Epyllion (4 players, rpg, f)
#7: Dungeon World (5 players, rpg)

This new category includes tabletop games: board games, card games, RPGs, dice games, miniatures games, and LARPs– it does not include video games. Hybrid tabletop-video games like Cthulhu Wars and Ultimate Werewolf count. Each game only counts the first time I play it during the year. Partial plays, if we make it to the point where it’s fairly clear who will win, or someone just isn’t having a good time, count for the list.
