I've decided to challenge myself to play some of my favorite games more often. So, I've picked ten of my favorite games, and I'm resolved to getting them each played ten times before the end of 2014.

I like this game, but am still a rookie, so I've shied away from the games that are full of experienced players. But no more! Ten games by the end of 2014!


Well, this has not moved along as I had hoped. AND there's another game that I think I like better. So, I'm going to replace BSG with Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game

And I've already gotten two play in!

This is going to replace Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game because I haven't gotten any games of that played, and I think I like Dead of Winter better. Dead of Winter is a survival game with a zombie theme. Not really a typical zombie horde game, because there are many other survival objectives, zombies being just one of them. It's a "meta cooperative" game, meaning that, in addition to the common group cooperative goal, each player has there own personal, secret objective.

Oh, and someone might be a betrayer - but maybe not...

-------------------------
Aug. 9 - played at CABS. Lost.
Aug. 9 - played again at CABS. Again, lost.
Aug. 15 - played and WON @ CABS!
Aug. 23 - played @ CABS as one of four players, all victorious!
Aug. 30 - played @ CABS with 4 new players. All lost. My first time as Betrayer and I could not fulfill my personal goal. But at least I got morale to zero.
Sept. 13 - played at BGF with Kirk, Craig, Tony, and Jim. Defeat for all including both Betrayers.
Oct. 11 - played at CABS with Vince, John, and Jim. One out of four reached victory. I waited too long to betray the group and lost.
Nov. 15 - played at CABS with Jim and Matthew. We all lost on the last round to a bite roll.
Nov. 21 - played at CABS with Jeff C., Kirk, Tyler, and Mike. Very disappointing loss on final round. angry
Dec. 13 - Played at CABS with four others. We had four victories in the last round! Finally, I was one of the winners!

That finishes my 10 plays of Dead of Winter, too! All since August!

+++++Ten Plays Completed! Now tracking "Overplays"+++++
Dec. 27 - played at CABS with Jonathan, Dave, Leslie, and Tony. The game beat us up badly. I lost my first two survivors to bites on my first two actions. zombie
