My GeekList for the 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each.

I wanted this list to include some of my favourite games to give me a better chance of completing it, but I did not put games that I play all the time because this list will be a great incentive to play more games than I did this year. Several of these games (Agricola, Eclipse, Letters from Whitechapel) I have not even played once. I'll update the list with dates that I played them as we go, let's have a great year of board gaming!

Twilight Struggle:

Hanabi:

Lord of the Rings Card Game:

Eldritch Horror:

Factory Manager:

Compounded:

Smash Up:

Agricola:

Eclipse:

Letters from Whitechapel:


Alternate: Ticket to Ride: Europe:

Twilight Struggle is my favorite game at the moment, and getting ten plays throughout all of 2014 should be no problem. I don't have many partners to play with now, but I have had several people express an interest in learning.

Plays:
1. January 4th, as US in intro game with friend.
2. January 25th, as USSR, turn 6 victory by 20 VP.
3. February 4th, as USSR, resounding turn 5 victory by opponent DEFCON suicide.

I have one friend who is obsessed with playing Hanabi with me, whether it be just the two of us or in a group of five. If I see him enough, this should be easy to complete, otherwise I may have trouble convincing uninitiated friends to join me.

1. January 5th, a group of four people scored 19 points.

I'm new to LCGs in general but love the Tolkien world. My hope is to have at least half of my plays be with another person, but I will be adding plays done by myself as well.

Arkham Horror is one of my huge board game addictions so Eldritch Horror is an obvious choice for this list. Given it's relative complexity and long play time, it will be more difficult to complete than some of the items on my list, but with my Lovecraftian dedication, I think it's possible.

Power Grid was a decent hit with my gaming group, but I still found it too directly confrontational for my liking. I felt much better about Factory Manager the several times I have played it, and since it is basically a board game about my career field, I better be able to finish all its plays.

Compounded is a new hit with me that I loved the one time I played it. I think the theme is great and the pieces for the game are well-done. With enough chemistry-nerd friend interest, ten plays will be doable.

7. Board Game: Smash Up [Average Rating:6.85 Overall Rank:620] [Average Rating:6.85 Unranked]

I've only played Smash up with my sister and family all of whom aren't big into board games. Some of them chose horrible combinations while one chose what seemed to be the throw-down best smash up there is, so opinions are mixed. With the large amount of deck combinations possible when using both expansions, Smash Up should be able to hold interest long enough to earn ten plays.

8. Board Game: Agricola [Average Rating:8.03 Overall Rank:17]

The first dark horse of my list. I have heard lots about Agricola and couldn't resist picking it up in a huge sale during the 2013 Holiday season. Hopefully I will enjoy it enough to wring ten plays out of the brand new, still shrink-wrapped box.

Plays:
1. January 12th, solo to get the hang of the game, scored 21 points.
2. January 14th, solo to actually use the animeeples. Didn't go well, 14 points.

My friend and I have drooled over Eclipse and all it's pieces and space complexity since our introduction into the board game community. I finally picked it up during the 2013 Holiday sales and am raring to get a first play through done as soon as I next see my friend.

Letters from Whitechapel is a game that captured my interest after my recent re-obsession with Sherlock Holmes and old-timey England. I really hope to start as Jack since I will be introducing it to friends who have never played before, but then move into an investigator role eventually as they become more familiar with how the game is played.

MY ALTERNATE:
The game that everyone has played and everyone loves, seemingly. It should be no trouble getting ten plays with everyone who loves this game around me. I will only begin counting TtRE plays if I realize that one of the other games on my list isn't as good as I hoped it would be.
