is hosting a 2014 10x10 Challenge, which is something I've wanted to participate in.

I haven't decided on all of my games yet--mostly because it's early in the year and I want to leave room for games Spouse and I discover and/or buy later in the year.

I'll keep the summary here in the header. Convention is to put the number of times you played the game last year in parentheses--several of these games are new to me this year, and I didn't start obsessively keeping track until this year either, so other games are my best guess.

Seasons (0, friend owns)
Settlers of Catan (10+, owned)
King of Tokyo (2, friend owns)
Hive (0, owned)
Coup (0, bootlegged)
Shadowrun (0, owned)
Arkham Horror (6, owned)
Munchkin (5, versions Cthulhu and Impossible owned)
I am counting all versions of Munchkin for these plays, as I don't view them as different games, just one games with lots of versions/expansions. We often play mixing 2-3 versions together, or with whatever expansions are lying around. We have also been trying to create a cooperative version, so I will count test plays of that as well. Frankly, if I had to play just one version one way, it would be too boring for me to play 10 times, but since we mix it up and homebrew it, I play it fairly regularly.

Forbidden Island (15, owned)

We borrowed this from our friend Julian. I think it's the first 2-4 player game we've tried that works really, really well with 2. The theme is not quite pastede on yay!, but only due to the rebalancing of energy tokens as the seasons change. There's not a real feeling that the game tells the story that the manual is supposedly telling: of a battle of sorcerers for crystals to become the next Archmage of Xidit. (And yes, I see what you did there, Libellud. Har har har.)

It's long, and I think we are done playing two games back-to-back (unnnngh, board game hangover), but I am surprised to have a card drafting game go on my "to buy" list fairly high. I feel like with the varying levels of deck you can draft from + the expansion, this will have a ton of mileage for us, especially since we're always looking for two-player games that we both enjoy--you don't want to know how many rounds of 500 Rummy we've played over the course of our relationship!

I am also using this for the 100 Play Challenge, so I am keeping a blog to keep track of my plays.

After playing once at a small gaming con, we made our own deck out of an old deck of cards. I plan to add The Inquisition expansion soon, as well.
