Sarah Reed opened up the 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each, and I thought it might be a good way to breathe life into my collection, if for no other reason than to avoid the constant purchasing of new games. I run a Board Game Club at the high school where I teach, which will help with some of the games.

Some of these I'll have no problem hitting 10 plays on, others may be a struggle. We'll seeā€¦



Check out my avatar - it's a pie-graph representation of my progress so far. Hopefully those slices of pie will fill up quickly!

Just got this; haven't broken the seal yet. I plan to get a group together after the winter break at school. Finding a regular group that'll play this will be the challenge...




First game to reach ten plays!

New addition that I really dig. 10 plays probably won't be too tough on this one.

This went from being the only game we ever played to never coming off the shelf. Let's get it back into the rotation and justify all that time spent sleeving cards!

Since every session contains at least two plays, and a game only lasts a few minutes, I predict that this will be the first game to reach 10 plays...




UPDATE: Actually, the second to hit 10 plays. It lost out to the Risk-obsession...

Rarely a shortage of people willing to play this with me. Should get to 10 with little trouble.

Probably the biggest long shot on the list. My son enjoys it; everyone else seems indifferent about trying it. I considered leaving this out of the challenge, then decided to give it a shot.

I jumped on the Hanabi bandwagon with the rest of the world. Love the game; enjoy getting new folks to try it, so that we're not just following the established customs that you fall into when playing with the same people all the time.

Went back and forth whether to go with this one or Lost Cities for my last slot. Hope they don't end up splitting the year with 9 plays each...
