2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each

Background:
For 2013, I participated in the challenge to play all my unplayed games, which wasn’t easy since, like many people, I kept buying more. But I feel good in having met the spirit of the challenge in consciously keeping up with the new games I bought through my own tracking geeklist. I even focused on replaying games, but usually only once.

This left me with an empty feeling, of not being able to get into the meat of some of the games. We hardly ever play a game more than a couple of times before we move on to something else. And I don’t want to do that this year. Nope, this year I’m going to focus on replaying games a lot and getting into the strategy of them. It’s not going to be easy, especially with fantastic new games always coming out, but I’m going to pick 10 and stick with it.

2/25/14 Rules Changed - Read the bolded sections carefully!

The Challenge:
If you’re interested in joining me in this challenge, it’s pretty easy to do so and may even hold some small prizes at the end. Anyone can join at any time in 2014.

1. Add an item, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the comment form for the item, write down your ten games.
3. Under each game, write 1-10 to track the number of plays or use stars.
4. When you play the game, enter the date next to the highest empty number (if you want to).
5. You may include any plays that happened in 2014, even if they were before you joined the challenge.
6. If you don't like a game on your list, you may add a new one to your list. You can do this change as many times as you like. As long as you play 10 games 10 times by the end of the year, it doesn't matter if it was the original 10 you chose to list. If you do change a game, please send a Geekmail to BK (user:Vacabck) as he's collating data on this challenge.
The game list must be finalized by midnight of December 31st, 2013. Except those who join in 2014, your list must be finalized before you begin tracking games. No plays before joining count towards this challenge.
7. The challenge starts January 1st, 2014 and ends December 31st, 2014. Do not count any games played before January 1st, 2014 or after December 31st, 2014.
8. When you have completed the challenge, played all 10 games 10 times, send me a GeekMail with a link to your item on this Geeklist. (Click on the number of your entry and it will give you a permanent hyperlink.)
9. If you have any questions, please send me a Geekmail or post in the comment section at the very bottom of this Geeklist. Due to my current health issues, I cannot keep up with how big this list has become. I do want to be here to help, but I just don't have time to regularly read through every page.


Note: If you want to enter the challenge more than once, it is allowed. You may create as many lists of 10 as you like. However, to make it fair for those whom this is a real challenge, prizes will be awarded for the completion of one list, not each list.

Prizes:
At the end of 2014, I’ll review the entries and anyone who has completed the challenge will get a prize. I’m going to start with Geek Gold. I’m putting in 20 GG to get started and will add to it any GG donated to this Geek List. The total amount will be split among those who succeed at the challenge. While I will be tracking my progress here, I will not be eligible for the prizes. And depending upon how the year goes, I may include more prizes, but no promises right now.
Jamey Stegmaier has donated a copy of Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia to be given to one random person who completes the challenge. Thanks so much Jamey!
Darrell Louder has donated a copy of Compounded with Compounded: Chemical Chaos to be given to one random person who completes the challenge. Thanks so much Darrell!
Eric Jome (user:cosine) will give 50 GG to anyone who succeeds on the challenge with more than 5 games that were published before 2004 on their list. No games released in 2004 count. It is okay to play a new edition of a game if the original came out before 2004.
BK (user:Vacabck) will give 63 GG to the participant with the most entertaining thread/geeklist chronicling their 10x10 journey. This will be decided by him. Check for his thumb on your GeekList to see if he's tracking it. If not, send him a GeekMail.
Mark Walker (user:Mark Holt Walker) of Lock 'n Load Publishing (www.lnlpublishing.com), will donate two boxed games to one participant that completes the challenge with at least 5 war games in the 10 games. The winner will be selected randomly.

Final Stats:
Thanks to Pasi Ojala, we have the following, mostly accurate, stats:
889 total users
1,644 different games
10,321 total in 922 items
4 empty or not understood lists

286 users completed the challenge (as of 1/24/15)
32% of users completed the challenge

Etc:
Let me know if you have any questions. Hope you’ll consider joining the challenge, but most importantly – play games!

--If you play a game multiple times in a row, each completed game counts as a play. Partial games do not count, but can be added together to count as whole games.

--Feel free to include expansions in your games. I would recommend to record plays under the base game, though, and not have an entry for the expansions themselves. The exception is game expansions that can be played on their own. One example is Dominion since you can play each expansion as it's own focus as long as you have the base cards.

--Any games in a series still count as their own game. For example, the Tempest line of games. However, the exceptions are D&D, 18xx, Dungeon Command, Heroscape and GMT Coin. Brass and Age of Industry can be on entry as well. If you think of any other exceptions, please let me know.

--If you feel that step 3 & 4 above will make your entry too long, feel free to record it some other way such as using 10 stars in a row or just recording the number of plays instead of a vertical list with dates.

--Feel free to play your games in any order that you like. You don't have to start with #1 and play all 10 games before going to #2. Unless that is how you want to do it.

--Role-playing games count. Each session counts as a play. So if you meet 10 times, that's 10 plays.

--For games that have scenarios, playing through a scenario counts as a play.

--Online/digital games count regardless if you are playing against a person or the computer AI. The game just has to be a digital implementation of a physical board game.

Some I know will be relatively easy to complete (because both me and my wife love the game), but some challenging too. At least some motivation to play all the titles that don't hit the table often enough.

Macao
1. 05.01.2014 - 2p game, managed to break the 100 pts barrier (103). Lovely as always!
2. 28.02.2014 - 2p game, last of February. Tight, 88 to 82. Had 3 cards on my tableau in the end, -9 point penalty
3. 06.04.2014 - 2p game, 122 points! My best score to date, managed to activate two 4-colour cards quite early in the game (around turn 6).
4. 07.05.2014 - 2p game, 115 points - what a great streak!
5. 26.06.2014 - 2p game, once again above 100 (with just one penalty marker). Managed to get two stores for a combined value of 32 pts. Nice!
6. 25.07.2014 - not a bad score (87) but Marta did even better (92). She activated sail loft quite early and gained about 20 free ship moves in total.
7. 21.08.2014 - what a tought, exciting game! Won by 3 points, but Marta was only 1 grey cube short to activate a game end card for 12.
8. 14.09.2014 - Michał's first game, he did pretty well, but took to many expensive cards and the penalty killed him in the end.
9. 10.11.2014 - Good game, 106 pts - had three storage cards that allowed me to score 50 pts for various goods.
10. 20.11.2014 - Marta wins in great style! I was able to get an office of each color and score 12 for that, but it wasn't enough...

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island
1. 11.01.2014 - 2p game. Didn't make it, Jenny died in the last turn on... diarrhoea. Doh, next time.
2. 10.03.2014 - Okay, so we tried to rescure Jenny once again. No go, everybody died in turn 4. Hate you, Ignacy Trzewiczek!
3. 04.04.2014 - Jenny, oh, Jenny... So, so close. One knife, three skins and we would have won /cry
4. 08.04.2014 - Huzzah, Jenny is saved But I'm so, so tired now... My brain hurts.
5. 30.06.2014 - "Volcano Island" for the first time. Wasn't so bad, if only we didn't die... My carpenter suffered 6 wounds in 1 turn!
6. 19.07.2014 - "Volcano Island" defeated! Nervous in the last turn, only one chance to construct the raft and had to roll, but it was a success.
7. 31.08.2014 - "Cannibal Island" scenario. For the first time ever I hated this game with passion. This is a total luckfest and we DID NOT enjoy it. Some rules tweaks needed if we are to play it again.
8. 02.11.2014 - "Cannibal Island", second take. And we won! Had lots of luck (only 1 adventure card with book in 4 or 5 first turns), but it felt great nevertheless. Also because we didn't enjoy this scenario that much. Good to be done with it.
9. 13.12.2014 - "Robinson's Family" take one. We lost of course (died on turn 11), but I'm pretty sure we will nail this one down soon.
10. 28.12.2014 - "Robinson's Family" again. We we're doing better than last time, but oh the surprise - we died faster! Shame, because we were really close to win this one Good news is - this was the final game of the challenge!

Bora Bora
1. 09.01.2014 - 2p game, Marta wins by 7 points. Some AWFUL dice rolls.
2. 18.02.2014 - 2p game, Marta wins by 3 points (178). One mistake in the beginning made all my plans crumble. Harsh game sometimes.
3. 20.02.2014 - 2p game and... REVENGE! 193 to 148, bad game for Marta, good for me. Can't complain!
4. 27.03.2014 - 2p game, broke the 200 pts barrier (215). Marta hadn't have any luck with the tasks, the poor soul.
5. 02.05.2014 - 2p game, a tight one. 174 to 167, think I won thanks to majority in the temple.
6. 13.06.2014 - 2p game, and what a game it has been! 212 points, many thanks to the huts and jewelry. Never tried this approach, but it worked!
7. 29.07.2014 - Not a bad game again, 196, activating ceremonial spaces often (had all in the end). Not many fish points this time (only 7).
8. 29.08.2014 - 198 pts, a lot (almost 1/4) in the temple. It was a good, relaxed game for me, many easy tasks.
9. 24.10.2014 - Disaster for Marta, great game for me (232). Felt like everything plays in my favour.
10. 15.11.2014 - Started badly (with expansion task I don't enjoy very much), but in the end, it was so bad! Bora Bora, I like this game.

Agricola
1. 02.01.2014 - 2p game; 34 points, a lot worse than last time.
2. 26.01.2014 - 2p game; close, 41 to 37, but still a win. Great game this Agricola!
3. 14.03.2014 - 2p game; my farm didn't look so great this time, but had lots of points for cards (11, resulting in a score of 42).
4. 25.04.2014 - again, 2p game; some awful cards, nothing interesting to build on. Each game of Agricola feels different, even if I do the same thing - which is good.
5. 08.05.2014 - 2p game; 41 points again. Could have scored more, but Marta stole all the wood for fences! In other news, baker's oven is a powerful card.
6. 03.07.2014 - 2p game, and a nice one too. 47 points - 18 for my stone house (thanks to two occupations: 1 free room when I have 5 and 1 point more for each stone room).
7. 24.07.2014 - Went for the animals, wasn't so bad. Marta says she still can't wrap her head around this one...
8. 21.09.2014 - a tie - for the first time (32-32). Had some nice synergy in the cards (2 cards raising the value of stone home) and I scored 24 for my house, but also had plenty of penalties.
9. 04.10.2014 - 52 pts this time, 18 for stone house, but with no penalties (other than -1 for no sheeps). That made a difference
10. 01.12.2014 - not bad, not bad, had lots of fields, big family & wonderful stone house. What more could you wish for

The Castles of Burgundy
1. 23.01.2014 - 2p game on the "10" boards. Marta destroyed me, won by 34 points. /cry
2. 06.02.2014 - 2p game on the new "13" boards. 233 points, great score, but the board C seems a bit OP.
3. 13.03.2014 - 2p game. This time Marta drew the 13C board and guess what - she won (221 points).
4. 11.04.2014 - 2p game. Board 13C wins third time in a row (regardless of who plays it). 216 for Marta! But this time I've been only 3 pts behind.
5. 15.05.2014 - 2p game. Tight (194-188) but the "13" boards aren't as exciting as the "10" boards.
6. 30.05.2014 - game 1 of Kudowa Feld Mayhem.
7. 30.05.2014 - game 2 of Kudowa Feld Mayhem.
8. 30.05.2014 - game 3 of Kudowa Feld Mayhem.
9. 30.05.2014 - game 4 of Kudowa Feld Mayhem. What a night! Four times Burgundy... Three times a winner! Need to do it more often
10. 20.06.2014 - first game with Gregu, close one, 202 to 194. Gregu managed to complete a big field with the hens only, hence the good result.

Call of Cthulhu
1. 12.01.2014 - what a game! Lost 5 characters assigned to 1 story (my fault), but in the end lost only 3:2.
2. 01.03.2014 - Living Yummy! Would have lost, but forced Marta to discard one card - turned out to be the mummy (didn't expect that!). Rest is history =)
3. 02.03.2014 - Okay, I remember I won... That's what happens when you forget to record your play!
4. 24.04.2014 - Marta still learning the new Yog deck. Says she hates all the new, complicated effects. Hope she will grow to like them, because the deck is fun overall. Very different.
5. 04.05.2014 - Game 1. Marta wins quickly thanks to cheap characters of the Yog deck, some very useful card abilities.
6. 04.05.2014 - Game 2. I win quickly thanks to many investigation icons and two or three events played on the right moment. Overall, a tie!
7. 07.06.2014 - three games in a row, all Hastur & Syndicate vs University & Agency. Piotrek plays for the first time (U+A), so I win it rather comfortably.
8. 07.06.2014 - game 2. Faster one and more balanced, Piotrek had a chance to win, but made crucial mistakes.
9. 07.06.2014 - game 3. Longer and more tactical, Piotrek playing better, but still overwhelmed when many creatures are on the table. But he's not easily discouraged!
10. 22.06.2014 - first game with Gregu, he won fast with an Agency + Miskatonic rush. Tried to stop him with my Hastur + Syndicate deck, but he anticipated my moves very well.

London
1. 05.02.2014 - 2p game, 86 to 64 (Ben/Luca variant). Really fast game, neutral player blocked many districts.
2. 03.04.2014 - 2p game, good score (132). Quite slower game than the last one, lots of juggling with the cards on display. Still think it's a "good, but not great" game.
3. 14.06.2014 - 2p game, Ben/Luca variant. It pays to take loans IMHO
4. 17.07.2014 - 2p game, Ben/Luca as always. Marta wins with 111, I took 3 loans and paid off only 1. Didn't have cards to generate income
5. 21.07.2014 - 122 to 122, Marta wins with tie-breaker. No revenge this time...
6. 07.08.2014 - 95 to 67, sweet revenge! Marta had 14 poverty markers, costed her the game.
7. 19.09.2014 - good game (2p), 131 points in total. 19 from the Town Houses - if you know the game, you know it's a good score
8. 15.10.2014 - Mettingen Wallace Madness, game 1.
9. 15.10.2014 - Mettingen Wallace Madness, game 2.
10. 16.11.2014 - Wow, good score! But poor Marta, she had drawn almost all the poverty cards this game, I had only one...

Rokoko
1. 16.01.2014 - very tight 2p game, 68 to 63 - loving "Rococo" in that aspect.
2. 22.02.2013 - 3p game, first for Ewa. Won with 67 points, dominated both big halls and the terrace.
3. 21.03.2013 - 2p game. What a score - 93, my best yet! Lots of employes, lots of statues, but also lots of luck - and my opponent was too kind...
4. 29.03.2013 - first 4p game - and it was great! Much more tight than the 2p game, more going on. Loving it!
5. 26.04.2014 - 2p game, and a really balanced one - both of us tried a bit of everything, but Marta did it 6 points better.
6. 23.05.2014 - 2p game, obliterated by Marta... 56 to 80. Need to take revenge ASAP.
7. 27.06.2014 - Revenge! 79 to 66. 10 points thanks to the guy that gives 1 pts for blue dress (had 4, and that's a lot!).
8. 27.07.2014 - some mishaps for Marta and I won rather comfortably. She had let me take too many scoring workers. Very solid game this "Rococo", although it shines with more players.
9. 05.10.2014 - 93 pts, and again! Made many dresses with my masters (6 I think) so I was winning every tie breaker in area majority.
10. 01.11.2014 - 80 to 72, fun game, tried a "thin deck" strategy (and it wasn't so bad).

Carcassonne
1. 03.01.2014 - epic 2p game of "Carcassonne", "River II", "Inns & Cathedrals" and "Traders & Builders".
2. 14.01.2014 - 2p game of "River II", "Princess & the Dragon", "The Flyer", "The Cult". Tight, 133 to 131!
3. 09.02.2014 - 2p game with few small expansions ("Flier", "Messages", "Ferries") + "Inns and Cathedrals". 260 pts, wow! (Scored one huge city for 60.)
4. 06.05.2014 - 2p with "Princess", "Flyer" & "River II". Lots of mean moves, lots of meeples eaten by the dragon, very nasty game. Loved it!
5. 26.07.2014 - trip to the past - "Carcassonne" with no expansions. Marta wins (107) thanks to the big field. Indeed, history likes to repeat itself...
6. 08.08.2014 - with "The Ferries". Didn't let Marta score all the fields and this time I won! Many small points for roads and the like.
7. 11.08.2014 - a game of blocking - two biggest cities went for 0 points both! But I managed to score one moderate city (22 pts) and won.
8. 14.10.2014 - Mettingen Carcassonne Spree, game 1.
9. 14.10.2104 - Mettingen Carcassonne Spree, game 2.
10. 26.10.2014 - A quick game with the small "Messengers" expansion. Marta won 126 to 117, but if I didn't score my huge town in the last trun, she would have crushed me!

A Touch of Evil
1. 17.01.2014 - first game with "The Coast" vs the werewolf. Never stood a chance, the rats obliterated us.
2. 23.02.2014 - 3p game with "The Coast" against the vampire. Ewa won as Karl the Soldier - some sick card combos, half of her throws were hits.
3. 17.04.2014 - 2p game, competitive mode with "The Coast". Vampire again, and Marta won it! Was sure I will be first to start the showdown, but she outdid me by 1 move, the crafty swine!
4. 15.06.2014 - 2p game, Liliana vs Karl. Won it (as Liliana), but there were some hilarious moments, inlcuding a mad Reverend Harding burning all the books the same turn I managed to get the longed-for +2 spirit book...
5. 10.08.2014 - first game against the Dreamweaver. Didn't go too well - we lost =) Raced to be the first to down the villain and in result we had 3 unsuccessful showdowns. And then the darkness came...
6. 24.08.2014 - also against Dreamweaver, but with 3 players (Ewa joined us). And the villain goes down! (In 1 round - I had 11 hits... =)
7. 11.09.2014 - so, I fought the Vampire and I made 39 combat test. Hit him three times and lost. Then my brother came and killed him in 2 rounds. /cry
8. 12.09.2014 - competitive game that turned into cooperation =) Ghost Ship defeated in the last possible turn, but it wasn't easy!
9. 28.11.2014 - to say Marta had bad luck would be an understatement. It was just pure streak of HORRIBLE. But I won =)
10. 15.12.2014 - first game against the Siren, and it was SLOW! Marta lost the showdown, several turns later I (Liliana the Lost Soul) managed to finish off the villain.

I've added mine as a GeekList also but here are my ten:

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game
Risk Legacy
King of Tokyo
Lords of Waterdeep
Archipelago

Great idea for a challenge! I hope I'm up to the daunting task and don't get too distracted by the new and shiny!

For posterity's sake I've kept my original comments in tiny text below. It was interesting to see how a math trade, Christmas and input from my gamers changed my list!

My 10 Games 10 Times Each Goal for 2014:

Eclipse

Eclipse is currently my favorite game... but its going to take some work to get it on the table 10 times this year. A couple friends are willing to help make it happen though!

Power Grid

The guy I was planning to play T&E with a bunch moved away... and my wife and sister in law turned out to like Power Grid... so maybe it will do better in this challenge after all!

Concordia

Concordia showed up at my FLGS just in time for Christmas and I really enjoyed my first few plays. I'm looking forward to getting this to the table on game night!

Age of Industry

Age of Industry was a recent math trade pickup I haven't gotten to the table yet... but reading about all those neat expansion maps makes me excited to really explore this system.

Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories was a surprise Christmas present from my sister in law that my wife just loves. It should be easy to battle Weng Fu at least 10 times this year.

Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age

Another surprise. When I told my wife about the contest she requested we give this kickstarter game a shot. With that kind of enthusiasm for a game we don't even own yet I had to say yes!

Samurai

Of my lighter tile layers this was the most popular with everyone... and is the one I've played the least... so I'm very excited for a deeper exploration of this classic.

Galaxy Trucker

We used to play Galaxy Trucker a lot... and now we don't. So its time to make it a regular part of game night and try out all those shiny expansions in 2014!

Hansa Teutonica

I couple friends know this is one of my favorite games that I rarely get to play and wondered why it wasn't on my preliminary list. Thanks to their interest I put it on this final one! Some plays will be logged under the Hansa Teutonica: East Expansion.

Village

Village is my New to Me game of 2013 and both my gaming group and wife enjoy it. I also only have one play with the expansion and want to explore how it changes the game a lot more!

Alternate: Hordes Primal Mk II Done!

I'm planning to attend two tournaments for Hordes in January... so I might get my 10 in by the end of the month! This will clearly be the easiest to finish on the list.

****************************************

Games added per the rules changes:

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game Done!

Coup Done!

One Night Ultimate Werewolf Done!

Hanabi Done!

Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization Done!

****************************************

Great idea for a new year goal! I like trying to play through all my games but am sad how seldom some games come out. I'd also like to use this as a way to focus on some games I feel like I've been particularly neglecting in my collection. I have a provisional list that I'm asking my wife and gaming group to help me narrow down so they don't get sick of me asking to play the same games over and over if they just aren't that interested.

Games with my wife:
Pandemic on the Brink - Pandemic is Gwen's favorite game... but we've almost never played with the mutated strain so perhaps we could focus on that this year.

Battle Line - We keep saying we should play this more... this would be good incentive.

D-Day Dice - We've been meaning to get back to playing this too. A lot of scenarios we never got to in our first burst of enthusiasm.

Heavy Stuff:

Eclipse – I’m asking for trouble here… but if there is enough interest I bet we could make it happen.

Power Grid – Last night’s session generated quite a bit of enthusiasm and the expansion maps would keep it from getting stale (and I’ve only played 3 times). Almost a lock for the list.

Agricola – There seemed to be interest in playing this more and I’ve almost never played the advanced decks… but do we want to push for 10 games next year?

Caylus – Probably as time consuming as Agricola… though it takes up a bit less table space. The first worker placement game is a deep experience I’d like to explore more… but 10 times in a year isn’t going to happen if nobody else is interested.

Medium Stuff:

Village – My #1 new to me game of 2013 and I’ve only played the expansion once. It’s a really good Euro.

Concordia – I don’t even own this yet, but if it’s as good as I hope there is a good game to explore here. If I’m wrong this could be a drag… anyone want to commit to finding out? I’m pretty excited about it.

Spyrium – My first two plays were encouraging. Nice twist on worker placements/auctions worth exploring... but 10 games worth in a year?

Tigris & Euphrates or Reef Encounter – These confrontational tile layers have surprising depth for their relatively short playing time… but I historically have trouble getting them to the table. Any interest in learning the ins and outs of one of these?

Cyclades or Kemet – Both good war Euros with a lot of dudes on a map appeal. I’m leaning toward Cyclades since I like it a tad better and have an unplayed expansion for it…

Lighter, Faster Stuff:

Samurai – My couple of plays of this might have made it my favorite Knizia tile laying game. Bummer its out of print… but I want to play more!

Indigo – Light and fast. My first few plays felt a little random but I think there could be a lot to learn about setting up good paths.

Taluva – I just really like playing Taluva and wouldn’t mind getting it to the table even more.

Metropolys – Another out of print which I’ve only played once. A spatial auction game with neat building pieces that seems very different from most of the light tile layers I like.

Space Cadets: Dice Duel - I really enjoyed my first play and it seems like a great way to wind up and down game nights. It needs a big group though… are enough people interested in this?

Galaxy Trucker – I’ve barely played the newest expansion for this and will get it to the table more next year. Should I aim for 10 times more?


So... my list will be 10 of those. But my list will also go to 11 as I'm including 'Hordes' for sure. As I attend a dedicated miniatures night to play it almost feels like cheating to add it.

I'll update this into a finalized list before the end of the year!

That game is awesome. I'm really happy I've sold Agricola for this

Yeah! We did a 18 hour Pathfinder marathon. 14 games in 18 hours.

4-Suburbia

Wow! This game is a big, big suprise! I didn't think it would be such a hit. I knew I would like it, but I didn't expect my wife and my cousin to love it that much! I'm really happy with this "blind purchase".

OK, so I am 6 months new to gaming, and 70% of my play time is solo. My list is made up of games to continue my solo spree, along with games that are not soloable so that I can work on getting together a group more often.

Thank you Santa, for making this list possible kiss

And finally, thanks Silva for your hard work.

Hello!

I have been playing far too little last month and I see this challenge as a great opportunity to get motivated. Therefore, here is my tentative list (Please note that I am a solo-player, so all are for solo-play):

I assume that the scenario/adventure based games count each scenario as a complete play, right?

1. Level 7 [Escape] (I also have the expansion Level 7 [Escape]: Lockdown, and I think I will use it. I have already played the first scenario and want to take that character through the other scenarios of the base game, which would be 7 plays by itself)

Mmmmhhhh, I am still wondering how to get Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set into the list... Maybe I should replace Nations? Difficult, difficult...
EDIT: I think I have finalized the list now. I have left the original entrants visible for comparisons. Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set didn't make it into the list after all, who would have thought - but I am sure I will play it next year as well.

EDIT: I will keep a few reserve games here as I am not yet sure which game should be replaced (^_^;;

I am going to include 11, as two of them are conditional on receiving it them for Christmas

1. Stone Age
Plays:
Played On:


2. Tiny Epic Kingdoms replaced 7 Wonders
Plays:
Played On: Both the PnP and the actual game once the KS arrived. Amazingly deep game for the size and price.


3.Puerto Rico
Plays:
Plays: One of the best games was in August. 5 players (We finally taught the 9 year old!) scores of 58, 52, 50, 50 & 46. What a game!)

There was a rough and tumble play of PR over Thanksgiving break - Sharon ended the game before Nathan good man a big purple building - but I was too far ahead for it to make a difference (and Nathan was too far ahead of his mother for even that to help her catch him!) Me (62) - Nathan(48) - Sharon (47) and Zach (29) - he also got locked out of his "big purple"

4. Palazzo
Plays:
Played On: 6/28 - Zach and I got a couple of plays in. Always enjoy this game.

A recent play was a close 2 player. My now 9 year old beat me 72-70. He ended up with 3 buildings - one of each type. All 5 high and one type of material. I had 2 like that and 3 buildings 3 high each (and all of the same material) - but not quite enough.

5. The Downfall of Pompeii
Plays:
Plays: Played a 3 player on my birthday (one of my favorite games - they have to play ) I won - just barely.

Zach and I have played quite a few 2 player games of this in 2014 so far. Interesting and more strategic with two.

6. Tiny Epic Defenders replaced Star Wars: Epic Duels
Plays:
Played: We have played this as 2, 3 and 4 and I have even solo'd it a few times. Very fun game that is an intense co-op in a nice little (and portable!) package. One of my solo sessions was on the flip tray in my mini-van!

7. 221B Baker Street: The Master Detective Game
Plays:
Played On: This one didn't hit the table nearly enough - glad I went with 11!!

8. Dungeon Roll replaced Dungeon Roll: Winter Heroes Pack - we didn't like the expansion much, so went back to playing "standard".
Plays:
Plays: As with many games on the list, Zach and I have played a lot of two player with Nathan away at college. Zach really enjoys it - I am bad at recording plays on BGG for this one, as we play so quick - it's usually a follow up or "warm up" game for meatier fare.

9. Splendor (replaced "Stratego"
Plays:
Played numerous times - often multiple times in a sitting. This game definitely has that "let's play again!" factor working for it.

10. The Castles of Burgundy
Plays:
Played On:1/4/14 (session report here)
- 1/11/14 - 3 player. Taught our 8 year old to play....he came in 2nd. Been playing a lot of two player - VERY good game as a 2 player.

11. Eclipse
Plays:
Played On: 1/6/14 (thanks to school being cancelled for my eldest!)
Most recently on 6/27. Glad I am at 10 with Eclipse. The shine on this one is really coming off fast. Too random - and too often the game is decided by who has luck early on against ancients (or who doesn't).


221b Baker Street and Forbidden Desert are on Christmas lists - so I might have to make a last minute change before ringing in the New Year.

Some of them may seem "weak" - but sadly, with my eldest son preparing to leave for college (and gone at least half the year then) and my daughter launching a professional career as a ballerina, my 8 year old son is primary game-player (hence Dungeon Roll and a few "quicker" games).

Thanks for the challenge - it should be fun!

Edited to reflect the fact that I did not receive Forbidden Desert for Christmas But did get Castles of Burgundy I have 11 mainly because my primary game-playing opponent (especially items like Burgundy and PR) is going off to college in 7 months - and his 8 year old brother may not be able to handle some of the deeper games.

The 8 year old received Stratego (old school - 1996 version) and I think it actually has some promise. It feels (after a few plays) to be a tad deeper than I remember - especially if you play with the "silent defender" variant. Could be interesting to track some wins/losses and strategy notes.

EDIT: Many of the games originally on my list were replaced by recent purchases/acquisitions for the simple fact that they were the "new hotness" in our house.

FINAL EDIT!! I just realized I made it, as I had 11 on the list (to allow for what happened with game #7). I probably could have snuck another game on the list - Las Vegas. We've played this at a couple of game nights - and the 9 year old loves it and will be getting it for Christmas. I can EASILY see it getting 8 plays between Christmas and December 31st - especially since I took the whole week off. .

Thank you for the contest. It also has helped me try to do a better job of recording my plays (try is the operative phrase here)

Good stuff. Going to try again in 2015. I have Lancaster on my Christmas list. If I get it, I could get 10 plays out of the way by the end of January...can't wait.

Plays from 2013 are in parentheses after the item title.

1. Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small (3 plays, all after we decided to put it on this list)
1/16/14

This really frustrated me once, and I've had a hard time getting back to it. We both love Agricola and need to play this more!


2. Flash Point: Fire Rescue (4 plays)
2/21/14
5/31/14
5/8/14

Neglected for no good reason


3. Eight-Minute Empire (2 plays)
2/21/14

Short, easy...what's not to like? So why have we only played it twice?


4. De Vulgari Eloquentia (1 play)
1/4/14

Another game I really, really need to give a fair shot. Only played three times in the years we've had it. I have residual guilt about this game.

Yikes...we should probably have played this again before deciding to put it on this list. Everyone but my husband hated it, and I was reminded of why it had so few plays. The downtime. The tedium of not having enough to do on your turn--so much so that we wasted actions just to get them out of the way. The. game. length!! For 4 players, this took 4.5 hours after reading rules. I'm not averse to a long game in theory, but this was...snore Three cheers for having alternates!


5. Jambo (0 plays)

Should like this. Never seen much play, and I'm not sure why. Poor Jambo.


6. Council of Verona (1 play)
1/1/14
1/3/14

New for Christmas. I just want something I'm really excited about on this list.


7. Castle Panic (1 play)
2/21/14
2/22/14

Seems to get lost among our other co-ops. Played twice.


8. Biblios (0 plays)
2/21/14

Everyone seems to love this; we've only played a few times. It's time to change that!


9. Carcassonne (1 play)
1/2/14
1/4/14
1/5/14
1/6/14
1/12/14
1/19/14
2/1/14
2/15/14
2/24/14
We play this some, and we all like it a lot, but it has been a bit neglected of late.


10. Fantastiqa (1 play)

We just got this at Christmas. I've thought about this challenge a lot, and it seems to me that a game not worth playing 10x is not much of a game at all...so I'd really like to get at least 10 plays out of most of our collection.


Alternate game Odin's Ravens (0 plays)

This challenge made me look back over what gaming I've done this year, and (even if the past 3 months have been pretty bad for gaming) I've only played 8 games at least 10 times this year! Although I played Mage Wars 97 times, so it's not like I'm not exploring the depths of a game. I'm sure I'll get in 10 games of Mage Wars, so I'm keeping it off my list. I'll put another game that I won't necessarily play much left to my own devices on there instead. The list is still tentative.

I'm in! This will be a great way for me to appreciate the games I own. I admit that the past few months, I have been afflicted with Acquisition Disorder. This challenge is likely the best cure.

1) Ghost Stories
A gift from my Secret Santa! Thanks Secret Santa!



2)Pandemic (probably almost always with the Pandemic: In the Lab expansion)



3) One Night Ultimate Werewolf
This should be easy. The game is super quick. So quick that it could be done in "One Night"! But I figured I could use at least one easy 10 play game.


COMPLETE on 1/21/14!

4) Suburbia
Another Bezier title, and I absolutely love this game. Can't wait for the Suburbia Inc expansion!



5) Disc Duelers
This is on preorder, and I hope to play it OFTEN next year.



6) Seasons
A great game, and I still haven't seen most of the cards yet!


7)Takenoko
A game that my girlfriend picked out on her own (she's not as much of a gamer as I am), but she picked a good one! It has gotten a lot of play, and hopefully more next year!


8)Mr. Jack
This used to get played a LOT. Hoping next year it will get the amount of play it used to.


9)Forbidden Desert
Another coop added to the list, and a great one at that. Really enjoy this game, and hope to have at least 1 win on the harder difficulties.


10) Hanabi


UPDATES:

1/3/14 - Had family over during my weeks off from work. Was able to play a number of games, many of which weren't on this list, but luckily, a few were! A good start to the year with plays of Pandemic, ONUW, and Hanabi.

1/13/14 - Had a day off from work, and managed to get in a play of Mr. Jack & Suburbia Inc.

1/21/14 - Game night at a coworker's after work. Finished off One Night Ultimate Werewolf with another 5 plays! Also a game of Suburbia, and a round of Hanabi! Year is off to a great start, and it's pretty crazy to think we're already 2/3 of the way done with January!

1/25/14 - A Saturday of gaming had a play of Suburbia & Disc Duelers!

2/8/14 - A rainy weekend got in a play of Seasons! I still haven't beaten my girlfriend after 4 plays... And I still like this game.

3/29/14 - Rainy Saturday meant some Suburbia and Hanabi!

In April so far...
Suburbia & Seasons!

Tzolk'in - This game makes me feel completely incompetent, yet I love it. Would love to really develop a feel for the rhythm of the gears and the subtleties of the play.


Suburbia - Just got the INC expansion and love it. Hope to beat my little brother occasionally. (1/2/14, 4/5/14 x3)

Carson City - This is a quirky and fun worker placement game, and my friends really dig it. Should be a solid 10 plays!

Terra Mystica - A wonderful, deep, and challenging game. It's hefty and explaining the rules can be daunting, but I look forward to exploring this game and the different factions more. (1/6/14)

Eminent Domain - It seems like the new expansion will make this much more replayable! Very excited about that, as this is a tight and pretty quick deck-whatever game that my friends really enjoy.

The Castles of Burgundy - This is a terrific game, but victory has eluded me so far. Another one where I feel like I'm really just scratching the surface of gameplay.

Troyes - The combos! Oh, the combos! I love the art and the possibility for crazy combos in this game. It's a winner.

Space Alert - Played this for the first time, three times in a row a few weeks ago. Everyone loves it, and we were cracking up the whole time. Awesome fun. (1/2/14)

Puerto Rico - A classic. Beautiful design and usually pretty vicious for my fiancee and me!

Agricola - I'm kind of bummed to think that maybe Rosenberg killed Agricola with Caverna...but until the price comes down or something crazy happens, I love this game and will happily play it any time.

And that's that! On 2014-12-29, I've now finished the challenge!

Great idea, Sarah! Thanks for the challenge!

In alphabetical order, here's my 10 picks for games I'd love to play more next year (just for interest, I'm also listing the number of plays I've logged for each of these in 2013):

Board Game: 7 Wonders
7 Wonders

2013 plays: 5. Looks like I'll need a lot more Cthulhu in 2014.


2014-12-29 - realized this couldn't be done and removed it from the list
Board Game: Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game

2013 plays: 4. Somehow this really doesn't come up - I'm assuming it's because when I have people over for gaming, there's usually five of us.

Board Game: Eclipse

Board Game: A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (Second Edition)
Game of Thrones (I'd probably need to buy a new copy for that - my current one is looking very severely beat up)
2014-03-21 2014-03-29

2014-09-28 2014-10-12







2013 plays: 2. I'm not sure why this is so low.

2013 plays: 15. The most recent of them was in July. Troubling. Just played a few more games (adjusted play count). This might be easier than I expected when adding it to the list - I taught it to a friend who lives almost next door, and he's willing to play again.

2013 plays: 8. I'm not a fan of medieval Japan and samurai, but I do love the way this game works mechanically. Looks like I need to share the love a bit more next year.


Board Game: Ticket to Ride: Europe

My 10 Plays of 10 Games

I will update this with plays, pictures, stats, and mini session reports as much as possible.

Though I play a lot of solitaire games, for the purpose of this geeklist, I am only going to include multiplayer plays of games. As such, the games I predominantly play all the time (e.g. At least twenty plays a year) are not included. Hopefully this gives me more motivation to get these fun games to the table more frequently!

Arkham Horror
DC Comics Deck-Building Game
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition)
Galaxy Trucker
In the Year of the Dragon
Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy
Rococo
Serpents of the Seas
Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries
Twilight Struggle

ALTERNATE:
Cuba Libre
