Misrepresenting the facts...

Well I was looking at my collection and I noticed that there were a few games that I was sure I hadn't played five times but I didn't recall being on my list. I took another look at the list of games I had. It turns out that I had made an erroneous assumption in my original formulation. One of the things I wanted to do was exclude the games that I don't log as games, perhaps because they are expansions or think of them as expansions. Simple, I thought, I only have one unplayed game (as stated in my Owned & Unplayed geeklist) - Hybrid so I will just take that and add any other games with 1 to 5 plays and bingo I have a list!

Ahhhh well dear reader, can you see the flaw here? Allow me to elaborate: My 'Owned & Unplayed' list contains games I own but have never played... but I played games before I started logging plays... the result is a bunch of games that I have played but never recorded a play on the Geek... *facepalm*

This whole situation leaves me with a few questions that I will need to answer...
Do plays only count if they are logged? (Yes)
Do I count games I no longer own? (No - a few older games haven't been removed correctly)
Do I count RPGs? (No - at least not yet - I may revisit this later but I have adventures listed in RPGGeek and would track that there)
Do I count Wargames? (... The Jury is still out. They will be left on the list for now)
Do I count Video Games? (Hell NO! I will not be logging video game plays... ever!)

In other news, I have completed the two figures for my friends! It was a pretty swift job really and I am pretty pleased with the finish on them:


  1. Suddenly my 146 remaining plays aren't looking quite so bad...

    1. No need to sound so smug about it ;-) I'm making you play Star Wars Monopoly for that comment!
