Geddon's 2015 10x10 Challenge (Hardcore)
I've picked 10 games that have been collecting dust for a while. 2015 is going to be my boardgame year of austerity, where I'll try not to buy any more games. Or at least, I'll try to try. Although, I can still receive them as gifts (hint)...Regarding the challenge- I probably won't reach 100 plays, but if I can get at least 5 plays of each game, then thats good. 1 Game a week is doable!

My personal non-hardcore light/filler/quick/portable 10x10 challenge

2. Cold War: CIA vs. KGB
3. Condottiere
4. Hive
5. Illuminati
6. Love Letter
7. Liar's Dice
