Challenge Fever - 2021 Edition

Because it's never too early to start thinking about how to do it better next year.

I don't think I'm even going to attempt any other 10x10 or 5x5 or whatever. I never seem to be able to stick to them.

I'm still getting rid of games at a decent clip. I'm definitely on target for sticking to my previously blogged about Crates Challenge, which rules still apply to next year's spending and continued culling. The most important rule that I'm so glad that I've adopted is the commitment to play anything new within 2 weeks of obtaining it. This should have been my personal policy for the past 15 years.

I'm going to buy a few games and books in the next week, then plan on no spending at all in December, followed by adopting the above budget approach starting 1/1/21.

Expertise? Bah.

Peer pressure is a thing. I made a geeklist because someone else did.

I think the list may be more about BGG than it is about me.

The geeklist could be titled, "Many games I haven't played in ten years yet somehow my few plays have not been surpassed in the intervening years."

Enjoy.

Knizia - "because a game opens the door to other people"

Video Game Publisher: Ravensburger

(I'm shamelessly stealing this "heads up" feature from Mat's Progresiv Gaming blog.)

I spent several hours putting together a "Meta Geeklist" listing all other geeklists related to Reiner Knizia. I did this for myself, because after the recent flurry of Knizia Top 10s I was interested in the Knizia lists of the past, but I also mainly did it for others, to provide a convenient list for others so that they wouldn't have to hunt down the old lists as I did.

There is a lot of good content here on BGG that gets buried by newer content. Cult of the New applies to new BGG threads and new BGG lists as much as new games. It's good to turn back and see some of the really great contributions from the past. And why not comment on a list that hasn't seen activity in ten years?

But it wasn't until after I put the metalist out there that I realized that a geeklist linking to other geeklists will not alert anyone subscribed to games notifications. Someone who would normally see a list with Tigris & Euphrates on it would not see this list because T&E isn't actually listed on it, despite T&E photos showing up in quite a few of the listings.

So, I'm featuring the list here because here I can tag many of Knizia's games, alerting others to the existence of the list. I'm not doing this to grab thumbs or praise or whatever. I'm only trying to get the attention of other Knizia fans because I honestly think that the list will be of interest. I hope it is both useful and pleasurable for you.
