I spent most of the month with family and did not have much time to play games. But I plan to push the gas petal this January and hopefully all of 2021 and get my backlog down.

I love this game. It's a nonogram/Picross game. It does it very very well. I highly recommend it.

I was slow gaming wise these past 2 months. Slow playing games, that is, not accumulating them.

This is very much the little kid version of Ticket to Ride, but I enjoyed it. I think I'm basically a little kid at heart. Very simple.

A simple addictive little puzzle game. I found it relaxing. It's a bit like sudoku with hexagons. I enjoyed this one a lot.

I actually beat this in September but went for the 100%. Gorgeous and adorable.

I'm addicted to these simple time management games. I find them relaxing while listening to an audiobook or watching a tv show in the background.

This game is awesome. I admittedly got frustrated and switched to easy difficulty, but I had a lot of fun. I might go back and play it on normal/hard difficulty now.

I apparently started this game back in 2014. Decided to complete it now. I enjoy match 3 games while listening to podcasts/audiobooks. I did not enjoy the spot the difference parts and the time limit gets frustrating at times.

Got lucky on the community train.

Hello! I’m new here. I have a bundle buying problem and have a huge backlog because of it. So here I am, trying to work on that. I’m also not entirely sure how to make nice posts, but I’m going to try.

Animalia - The Quiz Game

This is a very simple game. You just see a photo of an animal and then use the letter tiles to spell the animals name. I played it with my 8 year old niece who enjoyed it. But it is laughable that they charge $19.99 for it on Steam.

Viking Brothers 2

I really enjoyed this. It is very relaxing. Now I want to play more games like it.

ABC Challenge

I decided to start the ABC challenge, which I’m assuming means beating/completing a game for every letter of the English alphabet. So I started with Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders, which seemed appropriate.

I wasn't sure about this at first but then I really got into it. It's not too difficult, but not super easy either.

Other Beaten

I liked Viking Brothers 2 so much that I wanted to play similar games, and it turns out I had one in my library.
