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.

I completed it too!

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.

Well, I think this challenge will be pretty difficult for me, given my current long-distance status with my significant other, who is my primary gaming partner. Still, I'll give it a try!

Mansions of Madness
Mice and Mystics
Seasons
Gloom
Goblins, Inc.
Small World
Myrmes

So we coordinated and have a lot of overlap to help us get the epic games done.

10*10: 100/100
Extra 4: 37/40
Completed: 13/14

1) Arkham Horror (Family):


2) Power Grid:


3) Galaxy Trucker:


4) Ticket to Ride (Family):


5) Race for the Galaxy:


6) Risk Legacy:


7) Dungeon Petz:


8) Space Alert:


9) Zombicide (Family):


10) Agricola:


Edit: Finalised my list and moved them around so the overlapping games with Dev's list share the same list number.

Re-edit: Swapped 7 and 9 after suggesting to Dev that his dislike of Euro's would probably mean that Zombicide was better suited to him than his (untested) like of Dungeon Petz.

Another edit: I have expanded Arkham Horror to the AH family, this means that two plays of EH have counted, and plays of Mansions of Madness/Elder Sign will.

Additional challenge: An Extra 4 (37/40).
So I've said a couple of times that I'd like to add a game to the 10*10 list to force me to play it more. So below are the games that didn't quite make the cut but I'm going to try and do anyway!

11) Mice and Mystics:


12) Descent 2nd Edition:


13) Android: Netrunner:


14) Hanabi

What an awesome Geeklist! thumbsup

I hope this is okay but I often play a game 10 times in a month, let alone in a year. So, in some cases I've added a special "condition" to the challenge.

#1 - 7 Wonders

I've played a good amount of 7 Wonders this year but mostly with 3-4 players. I want to see how flexible a game it is when you play with a higher number of people.

#2 - Android: Netrunner

Special Condition - Cannot buy any expansions until 10 plays are complete. I was 90% certainly going to play this 10+ times in 2014, and so the challenge here is to enjoy the base game without giving in to the natural urge of buying expansion packs.

#3 - Go

The reason I don't play Go as much as I'd like is because I...don't take the time to play Go. This'll keep me accountable to play at least 10 face-to-face games of Go in 2014.

#4 - Dominion: Hinterlands

Special Condition - Hinterlands + core or Hinterlands + Intrigue. No other mixtures. I've neglected exploring each Dominion expansion on its own merits and this'll be a chance to see how they hold up by themselves, starting with Hinterlands.

#5 - Omen: A Reign of War

Shouldn't be too tough. I've already sunk nearly 40 plays into it in 2013.

#6 - Warhammer: Invasion

This one is always a blast in pretty much any group, but I've barely had a chance to play it in 2013. Let's change that next year.

#7 - Dungeon Petz

Easily my favorite of Vlaada's designs. Having played this game about 10 times, let's see if it has any legs by playing 10 more times in 2014.

#8 - Le Havre

Another one of my all-time favorites that has unfortunately been neglected recently. I'm getting a ka-billion Euro boardgames for Christmas so let's see how they stack up against repeated plays of Le Havre, one of my favorites.

#9 - Biblios

Special Condition - A play only counts if done with 3-4 players. This is a really good 2p card game but I'd like to explore its mechanics with more people.

#10 - Innovation

Since we're getting the first expansion for Christmas, this shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

Extra #11 - Bora Bora

Special Condition - This last one is kind of a cheat. It isn't for Bora Bora specifically. It's actually meant to be a challenge to play every new boardgame I get for Christmas (of which there are definitely more than 10, and Bora Bora is one of them) at least once before the end of 2014. Christmas is the one time of year where my wife and I indulge our "New Hotness" urge but then those games tend to sit unplayed for several months since we just go back to playing what we'd already been playing. Yes, there have been times when an entire year went by before I played a boardgame purchased at Christmas.

I think this is a great idea. I've only been seriously playing games for the past year, and spending a lot of that time learning new games and not replaying games. I was just thinking the other day I need to spend more time re-playing games and less time learning new games. So with that in mind, here we go...

1. Eight Minute Empire - I really enjoy this game and see no issues with getting it done 10 times.


2. Eldritch Horror - Just got this from my secret santa and can't wait to play it more. This will include some solo plays.


3. Arkham Horror - I have all of the expansions, and have many GOOs I've yet to battle. I'd like to give them all a go at least once. This will also include solo plays.


4. Takenoko - I recently picked this up and really enjoy it.


5. 7 Wonders - This is probably the most played game with my game group, and I'd like to play enough to not have to ask multiple questions about what cards do every game.
Edit: The guy in my group who pushed this most has moved away. Since I don't own a copy and others are less inclined to play it without him pushing it, I don't see this happening.

5. Snowdonia - I recently acquired this and am going to do a solo run through with each train. Plus my group seems to like it quite a bit.


6. Trains - I've played this about a half dozen times now, still haven't seen all the possible cards.


7. Ticket to Ride - This will include all of the maps that I have in one heading. I will not include online plays. I think I can get closer to 20 on this one...


8. Airlines Europe - Love this game

Edit: Still a great game, just doesn't see the table often.

8. Thunderstone Advance - Very fun deckbuilder. This will include solo runs.


9. The Manhattan Project - Something about this game just puts it ahead of other worker placement games for me.


10. Lost Cities - This is almost a gimmie, considering it is one of the few games my wife will regularly play.

Well, that failed spectacularly!

I'm going to start off my list with games my Secret Santa gave me!

Space Alert


King of Tokyo


Bang! The Dice Game


And some games that I've kickstarted and therefore need to play more!

Zombicide (Note I'm including Zombicide 2 and Toxic City Mall as the same game here.


Flash Point


Dark Darker Darkest


And some games that just didn't get played enough last year.

Formula D


Pandemic


Ticket to Ride: Europe (Note, I'll probably include Switzerland and Nordic Countries as the same game).


Elder Sign




Alternates:
Elfenland
The Downfall of Pompeii

A fantastic idea! Not only will it encourage me to get new games to the table, but also play them thoroughly.

|__________| = 0% Navajo Wars
d10-2|░░░░░░░░░░| = 100% Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Last played: 2014.12.26
|__________| = 0% B-29 Superfortress
d10-3|░░░░░░░___| = 70% The Hunters: German U-Boats at War Last played: 2014.06.05
|__________| = 0% Android: Netrunner
|__________| = 0% Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations
|__________| = 0% Ambush!

d10-4|░░░░░░░░░░| = 100% Sentinels of the Multiverse Last played: 2014.10.20

Backup:
|░_________| = 10% Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game Last played: 2014.07.29

Edit 2014.06.16: Added Memoir '44 because I have afeeling it will get played at least 10 times.

Edit 2014.10.03: Added 7 Wonders after having played it 10 times.

I will take up the challenge!
2014 is likely a slower gaming year for me, with a baby on the way (arriving early January) and we just moved into our first house with a seemingly endless reno. But I love games, and think that this challenge is a great idea to dig deeper.

As a sidenote, this might also push me to better record my plays. whistle

d10-1 Kingdom Builder thumbsup
My most successful trade in 2013: my partner loves it, as do all the people I've introduced it to so far. It's very simple, but more strategy is discovered with each play.
Completed: 2014.10.13

d10-2 Agricola thumbsup
This one is a selfish choice, it's one of my favorites but doesn't hit the table often enough. Note that these 10 plays must be multiplayer.
Completed: 2014.09.25

d10-3 Hanabi
First I'll have to get this one, which I wasn't allowed to do with my 2013 New Year's resolution to not buy any games (a success). But when I have it, then I can work towards 10 plays by introducing it to different players, because because it's a novel little game.
Last played: 2014.12.10

d10-4 7 Wonders thumbsup
Not sure that I'll be able to get 10 plays in, but I'm hopeful because this is a great game.
Last played: 2014.12.30

d10-5 Glory to Rome
I generally play GtR with my partner and a specific couple-friend of ours, and all four of us have been slowly learning the game and strategy as we play together.
Last played: 2014.11.26

d10-6 Lost Cities OR Lost Cities: The Board Game. thumbsup
This one is for my partner, because it's her favorite game. Any of the three versions (card game, 4-player partner card game, or board game) is fine by me, it just depends who we're playing with.
Completed: 2014.10.08

d10-7 Friday. thumbsup
I had to include at least one solitaire game, and Friday is my fave.
Completed: 2014.08.30

d10-8 Race for the Galaxy
There aren't many people who will play this with me, the learning curve has scared gaming buddies away. But I have at least one friend who enjoys it and we tend to play a couple times in a row when we do play. I think I could get at least 10 plays in the next year, and that would be great! Again, the 10 plays must be multiplayer, the robot doesn't count.
Last played: 2014.10.27

d10-9 At the Gates of Loyang thumbsup
One that I rarely play, but I do enjoy. This is another solitaire challenge, with the hope that I can improve my gameplay and get deeper into the strategy.
Last Played: 2014.12.25

d10-1d10-0 PitchCar
10 plays is going to be tough. PitchCar is a game I specifically bought for family occasions, as something that everyone can do while chatting and with a beer or glass of wine in hand. So it's a specific type of games night that I'm looking to recreate by adding this to my list.


ALT RoboDerby: Express
Last Played: 2014.12.28

Overall Progress: 86%

If I were to abandon the hardcore challenge, then these are the games that I would be counting...

d10-1d10-0 Game: Ticket to Ride To replace PitchCar
I received Nordic Countries from my BGG Secret Santa last Christmas and it was the perfect game to play when my partner and I were sleep deprived with a newborn: simple, yet strategic, and great with two players. I've since picked up the Switzerland/India expansion to add map variety, and I've borrowed my sister's copy of Europe to play with the inlaws.
Completed: 2014.05.12

d10-5 Alien Frontiers To replace Glory to Rome
A game that my sister picked up and my partner unexpectedly loved. We have it on the iPad and play it often in the evenings once the baby has gone to sleep.
Completed: 2014.11.02

My Non-Hardcore Progress: 97%

Screw it, let's do this surprise [Note: this entry on the list is posted under Sentinels of the Multiverse, but SotM isn't actually one of my ten games. It was, but I subsequently removed it on account of it being a given that I'll complete that one. I like having it as my header, however. ]

Pandemic
(It's fun and it's solitaire-able, so a good start to the list. I like games I can play solitarily, since it means that if necessary, I can do a mad rush in the last few days of the year )
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Friday
(Another fun solo game.)
1) 18/03/14: 75 points to meeee. I really, honestly thought I'd lost this one... then I noticed that the second pirate only needed 16 points to beat, not 17. Whoops.
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Space Alert
(An awesome game, and another one with a solo mode.)
1) 04/01/14: I have no idea how we won this; everything went horribly wrong, and yet somehow, through the power of coordinated stupidity, we survived!
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

The Resistance
(My friends love this game enough that getting in ten plays shouldn't be a problem.)
1) 28/02/14: This was the first game I played of Avalon, and I was Merlin. Didn't know how to play Merlin, and there were three traitors in a row, and the first one managed to be first player... That game did not last long.
2) 28/02/14: Second Avalon game, I was loyal, the traitors won. Can't remember much else of it.
3) 28/02/14: I was Merlin again here, and slightly overcompensated for my quietness the previous time; we won most of the missions, but then the assassin got me. Bloody Merlin.
4) 24/03/14: Not 100% sure whether to count this one; it lasted a full five rounds, but with five players there were four spy cards, to mess with a friend of mine. He was disappointed at the reveal, as he felt it was a really good game up until that point; he later characterised it as like eating a really good meal and then throwing it back up.
5) 24/03/14: Victory to the spies, and to me. Can't quite recall how it went, but victory is victory
6) 24/03/14: Victory to the spies, and to me. Me and a genuine Resistance member both managed to convince everyone that we were Resistance, and then we picked the last two teams so that one of them would have to be all-Resistance. Or rather, they would have been, if I hadn't been a filthy spy
7)24/03/14: Victory to the spies, and to me (again). One of the Resistance had a near-perfect logical argument against me, but I managed to be so uncharacteristically fervent that he decided I couldn't possibly be acting.
(No-one's ever going to trust me again...)
8)
9)
10)

Dixit
(I'm sure I can make this hit the table a fair few times.)
1) 24/03/14: I came third of five, which is really, really good for me, because I suck at Dixit.
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Betrayal At House on the Hill
(I hope I can make this hit the table a fair few times...)
1)01/02/14: There were aliens in this one I beat them via magic feather; a little deus ex machina, I'll admit, but I take what I can get.
2) 14/03/14: This one was a little odd... A ghost got summoned, by the heroes. Then we found its bones and buried them. The traitor didn't really do much...
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Small World
(A new game for me, but it seems rather good.)
1) 04/01/14: Less a glorious victory, and more a crushing defeat. Damn trolls...
2) 23/01/14: DAMN TROLLS! Admittedly, they didn't win this time (the Ratmen essentially surrendered to the merchant skeletons, netting them tons of points and extra guys), but they came out at the start, lurked at the side of the board and were just generally annoying. And they beat me by precisely one point.
3) 31/03/14: I like Skeletons. When your opponents largely ignore your skeletons, you end up with lots and lots of territory... (I won.)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Galactic Strike Force
(Perhaps putting a game on this list that isn't even out yet is a tad optimistic, but I have faith in Greater Than Games, and it's another solo-able game besides.)
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Lords of Waterdeep
(Not yet played, but hopefully it will be fun, and go down well with my friends...)
1) 04/01/14: Well, this game was the first time we played with the builder. 42 damn victory points, she earned... (She won, as you may have guessed.)
2) 04/01/14: This one was almost very close, with there being just two points between the person in 4th and the person in 2nd. Unfortunately (for a certain definition of 'unfortunately'), I was about twenty points in front of that...
3) 17/03/14: ALL HAIL THE BUILDER. Again, 2nd and 3rd place were just a point apart, but my 30 building points shot me ahead for a lovely victory.
4) 17/03/14: DAMN BUILDER. She won again; at present she's undefeated... This was a pretty terrible game for me though - I just never got anything going. [Skullport module used.]
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Escape: The Curse of the Temple
(It's the kind of game that can be played multiple times in a row, so here's hoping...)
1) 04/01/14: We escaped, despite there being really rather a lot of black masks rolled.
2) 04/01/14: Even more black masks and rather a lot of curses turned this one into a bit of a crushing defeat...
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

ALTERNATIVE:
Smash Up
(Lots of fun, but I don't very often have four or fewer players.)
1) 17/03/14: Joint victory to the robot zombies (me) and the alien dinosaurs. I love robot zombies...
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Good luck, everyone!

Great idea for a list. This will be a challenge for me considering I only played 5 games at least 10 times this year. Recorded plays from 2013 are in parenthesis.

CHALLENGE COMPLETED DECEMBER 20!

1. War of the Ring: Second Edition (44) - This will be easy as I play online almost every week.
(Completed Feb 25)

2. Hanabi (44) - Another easy one that I play a lot. Maybe I can get 10 plays in one day. ninja
(Completed May 23)

3. The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game (33) - A favorite to play with my wife.
(Completed May 3)

4. Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set (15) - This one will depend on how many more expansions we get. The hunt the villain mechanic is getting old fast, so I hope they mix it up more.
(Completed Nov 22)

5. Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game (13) - Another favorite for the wife. Should be an easy 10.
(Completed Nov 1)

6. Corporate America (4) - A fantastic game that more people need to know about. I would easily play this 10 times if I had a more regular group of 4+ people.
(Completed Oct 13)

7. Mage Knight Board Game (0) - January substitution because it was an unexpected birthday present. Already one of my top 10 games of all time.
(Completed Feb 10)

8. Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men (0) - May substitution. I knew nothing about this game when I first made my list. Surprising depth makes this a keeper.
(Completed May 10)

9. Defenders of the Realm (0) - A hit from 2012 that we didn't play much in 2013, but it has been making a return to our regular rotation this year.
(Completed Nov 29)

10. Friday (3) - December substitution. I realized I wasn't going to willingly make it to 10x10 with any other game, so I plugged in this solitaire game that I could knock off the list by myself.
(Completed Dec 20)

Games that were originally on the list and have been removed because I don't think 10 plays will happen willingly. Number of plays in 2013/2014 in parenthesis: Bohnanza (1/0), Gear & Piston (0/3), Merchants & Marauders (2/2), Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island (1/2), Mice and Mystics (2/3)
