First time I entered a challenge on BGG, so I have little to no idea what exactly I'm getting myself into - apart from the obvious, which is committing myself to play each of the ten games on this list at least ten times over the course of 2014.

Not sure if this is anywhere near possible, but hey: That's the challenge part, right?

OK, below you will find the list of games I'll try my best to get to the table ten times over the next 365 days.

My progress so far: 100/100

I did it!!

Maybe I'll manage to beat my mom just once... Probably not.

Edit: Well, I did manage to break my string of defeats. No idea how that happened!

That said, out of a total of 15 games I played with my mom, she won 10.

Now this is a tricky one.
I kickstarted this in November 2013 and the expected delivery is August 2014... if it is on time, I have a few months left to get in my 10 games of this. If it is delayed, I need to fall back on my replacement game below.

Note that since the Kickstarter comes with 2 core game boxes, I'm going to count any play of Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death as a play towards this goal, too.

It arrived!

With or without the avalanche cards and maybe on one of the expansion boards. It's all fair game, right?

With any or all expansions.

This is my replacement game in case Shadows of Brimstone gets delayed for too long.
