New State New Challenge: 50 Different Games in 50 Days--Successfully Completed!

MinnesotaGO CRAWL IN A CAVE! When not playing games.
For the past few months, my wife and I have been excited by the concept of this geeklist: 50 - Nay, 100 - Different Games in 50 Days50 - Nay, 100 - Different Games in 50 Days. We thought a similar challenge would be enjoyable.
Play 50 different games in 50 days, to celebrate moving to a new state and a new job.
A short backstory:
Through a whirlwind of life changes, this challenge was put on hold for several months until this month, starting April 1. This past week my family and I moved from the sunny desert of Carlsbad, New Mexico to the boreal forest of International Falls, Minnesota. I've started a new Park Ranger position with the National Park Service at Voyageurs National Park.
My family is currently living in temporary park housing until we can find our own place in town. What this means for the challenge is: 2/3 of our games are in storage! I think we brought about 27 games with us (packed in 2 boxes, not including standard card games), which leaves us a few short of 50. However, we hope to be settled into a new place with the our 100+ games our of storage (along with the rest of our stuff!), and to celebrate our new house with a game festival. We'll see what happens... I may have to purchase a few new games too... If we don't find a place soon, or issues crop up, this challenge may sputter, but I'm cautiously optimistic.
What this list will include:
Almost all of the games listed here will be for 2 players. While we may occassionally have relatives pop in to add a third or fourth player, expect nearly all games to accomodate 2 players. A few games, my 3 year old daughter can play, but not many. Due to packing constraints in our vehicles for the move, many of our games are card games, though there is a nice selection of everything, Euros, Ameritrash, Top 100, Children's Games, etc.
The list should be updated every 1-2 days as computer and internet access allow!
I hope you all will wish my wife and I great success in our new state and during this self-imposed challenge.
Edit: Finally fixed that pesky geeklink!
