Here are 3 facts:
1. In just a few short hours a lot of us are going to get a huge influx of baginto our GG account.
2. Also, in a few short hours a few of you will start to promptly break any resolutions you have half-heartedly made because you felt you should.
3. The BGG community is the absolute best online community - the banner above has been telling me that for the last month.

So, because we are the best, let's hold each other accountable.

What you need to do:
1 (optional, but highly encouraged). Post a geek list item of your resolution. Please only give 1 resolution, and make it specific (and interesting!)
2. Tip any geek list item that you think will fail or succeed.

3 (this is the fun bit). Tell the person who posted their resolutions why they will or will not fail. Subscribe to that geek list item (or to this whole list). Please keep the banter fun. The idea is to have fun and have a good roast.

4. When the person breaks their resolution (because, nobody ever keeps them), they choose one of the comments and award them all GG that was tipped to that item. Chances are the funnier and/or more accurate your comment, the more likely you will be selected!

Please also refer to this sensitivity scale (1-5) to see if this list is right for you:
1. When I play roll and move games (like Monopoly) I get really annoyed when someone lands on the same space as me. What is their angle? Why are they picking on me? I am glad we drove separately because I am never talking to this guy again.
3. When I play Settler's of Catan I get really hurt when people stop trading with me. I know it cannot be the fact that I have 9VP. Was it something I said? Did I put on underarm deodorant today?
5. When everyone picks on me in a game it is because I am awesome. I must be the best player at the table for them to show this much attention to me. It is certainly not the fact that I showed up uninvited, am drinking their beer, and am burping every 3 minutes and blowing them across the table.

So - for this list, you need to be around a 4/5 on the sensitivity scale for the banter.

There will be other noble resolutions out there, but surely none as noble as this.

Some of you will be counting your games played, but instead I will count each and every individual I welcome with open arms to the wonderful great north, called Canada.

Most of my games will likely be solo, (5-7 freed slaves for victory condition).

This year I will stop carrying the hopes and dreams of my people.

Seriously, I am getting tired. I think someone else should take up the charge for a while. "Who are your people?" you may ask, well that is a long a complicated story that there may not be an answer to. Any way they can carry their own hopes and dreams now.

This year I will survive a snowstorm on a tropical island.

That's right folks... the island has an abundance of bananas and coconuts, but it also has frequent snowstorms!

This will not only require me to beat a very difficult game, but it will also require me to acquire a copy of this elusive beast. But that's not all! I must then convince my wife it is worth playing again, as I don't play solo!
