A couple of weeks ago I was tempted to sign in on the 10 x 10 challenge. But when you have so much boardgames that need attention it feels 'unfair'to give it just to 10 of them. But it's also unrealistic to think you can do a 10 x 100 challenge for example.

So I made my own challenge: play the 100 boardgames from my collection that need my attention the most at least once in 2014.

To do this I made a huge list of potential games after last Christmas: some games I have only played once, some only untill a couple of years ago, some haven't been played yet, and some are games that just don't hit the table enough times.

So here it goes. I hope I can get all these games on the table at least once in 2014, and that my gamerfriends will help me to reach this goal.

100 games in 52 weeks means almost 2 games a week / a bit more than 8 a month.

If you get inspired to do the same. Let me know in the comments. You're also welcome to suggest games from my collection that are not in this list (yet)

Updates: Fourteen weeks in and I'm at 27 from the 100. So I'm still on schedule, goal reached for these first 3 months. But I'm not sure yet whether I'll succeed.
After 17 weeks I only got to 29 games from the 100: falling behind schedule. Luckily my gaming weekend changed this: in week 18 I managed to get to 36 games. Back on schedule.
Week 20: 39 games played. Week 22: 40 games played. Halfway the year after june 30th: 43 games played instead of at least 50. This is not going well enough...

Week 28: the counter is currently at 46. I guess I should start organising some more game sessions and soloplays...

End of August: got to 53 games in 8 months. 2 thirds of the year and a bit over half the games played. I'm not gonna make it, but I'll see how far I get.

End of October: only got to 58 games yet, and only 2 months to go. I had hoped to reach at least 75 games, but I guess it'll be 60something.

End of November: crawled up to 59. got some work to do in December...

Final update: Got to 62 games of this list played.

When I started I thought I'd be able to reach a higher number. But 2014 pretty soon turned out to be quite a miserable year, so I guess getting 62 games is not that bad.

First category: Long economic / Civilization builder games*

* Yes I know that not every economic game is a civ game, but for me they scratch the same itch, and they're hard to get on the table. So that's why I pull them together.


I haven't played my Splotter collection enough, so I'll start with those.

Indonesia is a great game for 3 to 5 players. And I have only played it once, 4 years ago. Shame on me.

Update: after 4 years and 11 months it finally got played again. 22th game of the list played.
The session took a little too long for me (more than 4 hours), especially since I literally got a headache while playing it, but still a great game. Glad to have played it again.

The same goes for Greed: only played once more than 4 years ago.

Indonesia might be better, but this is also a great game for 3 to 5 players. And the theme is very fitting.

Well, at least I've played this long euro in a monsterbox three times. But that's not nearly enough for such a great (and expensive) game that I've owned for more than 5 years.

Update: 60th game played

Great game. I played lousy, but it was still fun.

And to round up the Splotter's on this list here's one of the two Splotter's I own I haven't played yet.

It's a weird adaptation of the 18xx train genre, without trains but based on irrigation. And it's been lying untouched on my shelf for 2,5 years now. Probably needs a loooong evening and several players.

Which brings me to another unplayed 18xx game I own. Since I like train games and live in the country this game plays in, there's no valid excuse for not playing it.

It's supposed to be one of the shortes 18xx games out there as well.

I like train games and this is a good one. Unfortunately only played once.
Plays 1 to 6 players. 5 or 6 is probably way too much, and I'm not much of a soloplayer. But it works great with 2 as well, so I only need 1 gamebuddy and a bit more than 3 hours.

I've played the remakes (and sold one of them), but I like the original best. Not everyone is fond of this mathy economical bidding game that makes Funkenschlag/Power Grid look easy on the 'calculate how much you can bid' part, but I like it.

Only played it once, and would love to spend the more than 3 hours needed with preferably 4 to 6 players.

Edit: 40th game played

Chad Jensen made a great game that really makes me feel like a struggling species trying to survive the other species and the changing circumstances.

I've played it 4 times with 3 to 6 players in about 4 hours, and would love to do so at least once more this year.

Update: 46th game played of this list
We played a full 6 player session. I did pretty lousy, but it's still a great game.

Most people seem to like Dominant Species by the same author better, but I like this one as well. Plays best with 2 or 3 in about 3 hours.

Only played twice so far.

UPDATE: First game achieved!
Feels a bit like cheating to still publish this as my list is not fully on the geek yet, but it was already a goal. And I need the 'one down, 99 to go' upper...

Allright, this is gonna be the hardest challenge on this list. Since it takes 6 - 8 hours and preferably 5 to 7 players.

I only played it once more than 4 years ago, and it wasn't even my own copy that has been gathering dust since I bought it in 2008. I think I know enough people that love this game. Time to set a date.

Well, at least this one is shorter than the previous one. It plays in about 3 hours, and you only need 2 or 3 players. It's best played with 3, but I also like it with 2 so I have hope to get this one on the table this year.

I've managed to play this one 9 times so far. But not last year. And all 9 sessions weren't the full game but the 'intermediate' version that takes 3 hours. So I'd love to play the full version.

But I'll settle for another intermediate session if that's not possible.

Update: 56th game of this list played

And finally the full game, and with more than 2 players.

A weirder civ game, in which you already know at the start that your civilization will die at the end of the game. Only played once more than 2 years ago, but I bought a cheap copy at Essen '13 and it needs to get out of it's shrink. Needs 3 or 4 players and probably close to 3 hours.

UPDATE: 44th game played.

I've got a couple of Phil Eklund games but I'm still not sure if I really like them or not. So I have to play again to see if I keep them.

My first and only play of this one more than 4 years ago was a bit disappointing. But I can see why others like it. So I want to find out after 4 years. Who wants to try the evolution of mankind in about 3-4 hours? (Needs 3-5 players)

If I like this, then American Megafauna will probably be on my next challenge list...

Another Eklund. I've tried this one twice. It felt more like a simulation than a game, but at least I feel the challenge. I hope to play this again soon.

Played with some expansions added. Man, I already have a tough time with the base game...

I've played this rare game twice and I think it's brilliant. It's probably Harald Enoksson's longest game, but it's a lot of fun. Time flies when you play it. 1-10 players, couple of hours. Should be playable with 2, but more fun with at least 4.

Here's a game that has been flying under the radar here on the geek.

I have only played it once, and that's certainly not enough.

It's a nice brainy economic challenge for 3 or 4 players that'll keep you busy for more than 2 hours.

Update: 52nd game of the list played.
It's quite brainy. Maybe even too much, we made quite some mistakes during the game, cause not everything feels intuitive. Still like the game though.

This is probably my favorite Tresham. Unfortunately it needs 4 or 5 players and as many hours, otherwise I'd have played it more than the 3 times I did.

Allright, back to more serious games. Again in the 'only played once' category is this GMT game where you explore and build in the Polynesian area. It's not that long (should be around 2 hours), but just not that popular. I'd like to play it more though.

Edit: 14th game of the list played
Best session I've played of this game so far. I seeing more possibilities in gameplay.

On every page of this geeklist I should include at least one game I have played several times. Starcraft clocks in at 9 great sessions over 6 years. That's not too bad you say? Well, it just isnt' enough! I really like this SciFi themed luckless battlefest. Luckily I can usually get this played every year with the same group of geekfriends from the Rotterdam Area, but it's always a struggle to get our agenda's right, and then there's always the lure of other games we like to play.

So just to remind myself to at least play it once it's in this list. I wish I had the time to play this at least every month.

Update: 18th game of this list that got played.
It was the 10th time I played it, this time with the Broodwar expansion. Now I wish I had bought the expansion as well when it was available.

This is actually a double entry: it's valid for either Maria or Friedrich, depending if I'll play a 3 or 4 player session.
Yes I own both games, and played both only once. Yes I'd like to play both games more. But at least let me play one of them. It's been more than 2 years since I've played them and I think they're great games.

Friedrich is a more or less similar game for 4 players:


Edit: 30th game of this list played.
After 4,5 years Maria finally got played again. Great game. Wish I could play this game more often.

From some games I own there is now a second edition before I even got to play the game a second (or even first...) time. Played this once more than 4 years ago, and really like this backstabbing much improved Risk like game.

Now that the TV series have become so popular you'd think it'd be easier to get 5 players round the table for this 3 hours + game, right?
