Wayback When? March ‘93, ‘98, ‘03, ‘08

Wayback When? is a review of the games I was playing five, ten, fifteen and twenty years ago with me highlighting the most memorable titles of each particular month in the vain hope that I might dig out some of them to play again. This month we’re looking at March 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008.

March 2008 was a very poor month for games as I only played two titles all month. Utopia was the only new game, a very nicely presented game but it didn’t quite hit the mark and I’ve recently sold it.

  

Conversely, March 2003 was a very good month with several interesting titles being played: New England, Friedemann Friese’s brain melting Fresh Fish, Michael Schacht’s Paris Paris and the card game version of Basari entitled Edel Stein & Reich.

March 1998 only saw one item of note but a good one it was: The Konig & Intrigant expansion to El Grande brought each player a deck of action cards from which they chose one in each round of play.

 

March 1993 saw my education about German games blossom further with Hare & Tortoise, Adel Verpflichtet (aka Fair Means or Foul), Ave Caesar and Alan Moon’s Elfenroads. I think I was hooked by this time.
