This is the geeklist logging my attempt at 10 games 10 plays in 2014. There is quite the mixture of games. I have included games that I hope to play with my wife and daughter, games that my regular gaming group like, my favourite game (Star Wars LCG) and a couple of new additions to my collection that I am not sure will even be liked by my gaming group!!!

Onward and upward!

Star Wars: The Card Game is by far my favourite board game. Therefore, I have no doubt that I will surpass the required 10 games! Now to find opponents.



1st Play - January 13th 2014
Played the 2nd place Worlds DS Deck which got to 8 on the dial before losing

2nd Play - January 13th, 2014
Played the 1st place light side deck. Lost as DS got dial to 9

3rd Play - January 13th, 2014
Played the same LS deck again and destroyed three objectives with the dial on 4

4th Play - January 13th, 2014
Played the same DS deck and held on easily to win

5th Play to 9th - January 15th, 2014
Tried some decks that has been built for the multiplayer game as single decks...they sucked! The Star Wars: The Card Game – Balance of the Force objectives are only going to be relevant in multiplayer games. Used the World's DS and LS decks again - they are dominant!

10th Play to 13th - January 16th, 2014
The game needs some balancing of factions. The meta of deck building has reached a pinnacle where Sith and Smugglers are the best. Need more Jedi.

This was a Boxing Day Sale pick up and hopefully will become a favourite. HULK SMASH!



PLAY 1: January 6th, 2014
Four player game - random set up vs Loki. A loss for the team!

PLAY 2: January 6th, 2014
Four player game - same opponent with different heroes. A big win with the Hulk smashing Loki...very reminiscent of the Avengers movie!

PLAY 3: January 6th, 2014
Three player game - Doctor Doom and the Cosmic Cube assisted by Asgardians, Radiation and Brotherhood. We played with the heroes we did not use in previous games. These were Avengers plus Spiderman. While we had some good synergies going we could do nothing to stop a lot of the Brotherhood damage (no X-men) and we took on many wounds. It was close but we lost.

This was my first day gaming since Christmas as I have been sick. I will try to take pictures and be more cognizant of the sessions in future posts.

A great little abstract Euro that was played a lot last year (over 300 games on the iPad). It might have overstayed its welcome. I guess we will find out. I will not be logging iOS plays.

Probably my favourite race game! The guys like it but don't know how much they will want to play with so many other deeper games needing to hit the table.

Great thrift find for me last year. Game was basically new! My daughter and I had fun with this in December. Hopefully the novelty has not worn off!

It was a choice of this or Carson City but as I plan to have the Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport expansion in my hands this year, I thought I would go with LoW

This is, as I type, on its way to me! Not sure if this will be a good game for our group but they will play it 10 times whether they like it of not!



1st Game - January 16th, 2014
Two player quest against the suggested initial scenario. Found it okay. Will be looking forward to playing an Adventure where we can level up our characters.

A game from my Secret Santa! Played twice already and the players found it to be heavy, AP prone and backstabbing...they still liked it but it will be a challenge to get it to the table 10 times.

One of my favourite Euros that has not seen enough play. Time to reverse that trend!
