This list is to keep track of the games I'll be playing for the 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Time Each.

I'm hoping that this will give me incentive to play more of the games I own.

2/13/14 Score 46 - Andrew Latimer was close to saving everyone. One person got confused and prevented 14 passengers from surviving.

2/13/14 Score 20 - Frederick Fleet gulp

2/13/14 Score 36 - Reginald Lee - The cards were against him

3/9/14 Score 21 - William Murdoch - He seems very powerful, but not gaining any additional action cards really dampens the power he has.

3/9/14 Score 30 - Tried Murdoch again. Only slightly better this time.

6/22/14 Score Pathetic score of 13 with William Murdoch

6/22/14 Score 25 with Joseph Boxall

6/29/14 Low score of 13 again

6/29/14 Better this time. Score of 33

6/29/14 Almost saved all passengers Scored a 54 this time thanks to the team of Edward John Smith, Herbert John Pittman and Charles Lightoller

2/24/14 - My team and I have failed humanity. There were no survivors. I ran into many difficulties - power outages, staff letting the lab rat out of his cage, etc. Just couldn't keep up.

3/5/14 - My dice rolling skills stink. The death toll just kept creeping up and I couldn't keep up with the mutation.

3/7/14 - Through efficient use of resources and funds, the planet has been saved from a deadly virus. Oh, and we can't forget the heroic sacrifice made by Marvin the lab rat. His sacrifice was the key to finding a cure to the last molecule.

3/16/14 - Another win. Marvin the Rat is probably the best lab card in the game.

6/30/14 - Won against the Bacteria. One more loss on the containment check, and I would have lost the game.

6/3/14 Lost - poor team choice
6/5/14 Draw
6/7/14 Won - Just barely. Only two cards left if the villain deck. One of them would have let the villain win.
6/14/14 Won pretty easily with Cable, Forge and Punisher vs Mole Man
6/14/14 Won. Next villain card drawn would have lost the game.
6/15/14 Lost against Galactus
6/15/14 Won against Galactus. Played again because I discovered near the end of the first game that Galactus' weakness counts against 3, but I was only counting as 2. So I played it again properly.
6/22/14 Won against Magneto. Played without any X-men heroes.
6/22/14 Lost - Very quickly against Kingpin with the Capture Baby Hope scheme
6/22/14 Won

7/6/14 - Played a solo game (scenario one) as the Cook with help from Friday and the dog. Came very close to winning. I think I would have won if I had played the resource gathering correctly.

7/7/14 - Attempted Scenario one again (with the Cook, Friday and the dog). This time I won in round 11!

7/8/14 - Attempted Scenario 2 (Cursed Island). I won on my first try! Seems to be an easier scenario that the first one (Castaways).

7/9/14 - Tried Scenario 3 (Jenny Needs Help). Played with three others and almost won. I was the Soldier and waited too long to heal myself. If I could have survived until the next round, we would have won.

2/12/14 - poor game play on my part. Lost by a huge margin.

5/6/14 - Played a much needed game of this (been wanting to play for a while). Taught two people how to play. We had to cut it short (only played four out of the five phases), but I won. I think they really liked the game. Took a few rounds for them to catch on,though.

3/15/14 I won! I invested heavily in Flying Is Simply Fun (Gray Airline) and picked up the 8 point bonus for completing the specified route. If not for this, I may not have won. Go Gray!

5/24/14 I won! Probably because I was playing against two people who had never played before. Taught my brother and my 9 year old niece how to play. My brother loved it. Another convert!

7/2/14 - Played a 5 player game. Top three players were separated by only five points. Winner had 77, second place had 73 and Third place (me) had 72.

6/11/14 Played with a couple people who hadn't played it before. They asked to play it again!

6/11/14 So we did!

6/28/14 Played with my brother in law and his 9 year old son. We achieved a score of 22! Pretty good. Although, we were a little lax on some of the rules (in order to make it more playable for my nephew).

7/19/14 Played a very good game. Ended up with 22 points.

7/23/14 Played a two player game. Ended up with only 16 points. Oh, well. There is always next game!

7/30/14 Played a three player game. Only had 19 points.

8/6/14 Played a 3 player game. Bad score. Only 17 points.
