Just like just about everyone else, I'm working on my resolutions for 2014 at this point, and this geeklist is where I'll record them and report on my progress.

At this point in time, the list is not complete. I expect more to appear here.

Play more games.
This, of course, means completing my 10x10 challenge. Some of the games on the list are heavyweights that will be a challenge, and some others are family-style games that I can play with my choir friends. Overall, a fairly difficult but realistic goal, I think.

Play my unplayed games.
I've often seen people comment on how much of their collection remains unplayed, and been confused by that. How is it possible to accumulate such amounts of unplayed things? And then, just today, I took a look at my own collection and realized, to my horror, that of 158 items in my collection, 49 have never seen the table (and that's not including the Mage Wars promos). So my resolution is to play or get rid of all of them in 2014. Here's the complete list as of 2013-12-31:

Bought in store 2014-07-02:

Brought from abroad by a friend:
Coloretto (Russian Edition)

Whenever I play one of these for the first time, I'll cross it off the list. Any new additions in 2014 will also be added to the list. And here's the kicker - this list will govern my gaming purchases in 2014. As long as there is anything on the list not crossed off, I won't buy any new games (or expansions!) unless I've crossed off at least 10 items since my last purchase.
My wallet, at least, will be grateful.

Progress towards next allowed purchase: 0/10

Contribute to BGG more.
This will be reflected by two microbadges that I do not have but wish to have:
mb: I currently have 3 posted reviews. This shouldn't be too tough.
mb: I currently have 3 qualifying geeklists. Not a terribly tough task, I think. Acquired on 2014-04-23

Diversify my roleplaying.
I own the core books for Song of Ice and Fire RPG and Engine Heart, and have played neither of those. My goal for 2014 is to play at least one of them.

Finish at least 3 Coursera courses.
Self-explanatory, really. I don't expect this to be easy, though - previous experience has shown that I don't have much in the way of willpower, and so have only ever finished one course.

Get more GeekGold.

Specifically, I want to get to 800 GG so I can get the mb. At this point, I'm about 600 GG short.

Run PBF games

1) Run at least one PBF game of Battlestar Galactica
2) Run at least one PBF game of Game of Thrones

I only started playing PBF games last year, and so far I've been in three BSG PBF games and two GoT PBFs, and haven't modded anything before. Should be fun. And a lot of work, probably.

Read more books

Board games aren't the only thing I buy a lot of. There's also books. The problem is that I typically spend more time buying books than reading them, so there's a lot of unread books in my flat. So, starting February (because it was late January when I decided to add this resolution), I will read at least twoone non-gaming-related books per month.
