BelziET's 10 games to play 10 times in 2014 (10x10 challenge)
Well, it is my first year on BGG and back into the hobby. And I wouldn't have thought that my taste would change and shape so much during one year. I guess when you're new everything is shiny and looks amazing...
However, although I did not manage to play my initial 10 games 10 times, I played quite a lot (I guess?) and will hopefully complete the 10x10 challenge in softcore mode — I'm only 2 plays shy of this goal.
So, here is my updated list:
Progress: 98 of 100 plays
7 Wonders (a game we borrowed from friends that really clicked)
Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small (bought to get my wife to worker placement)
Android: Netrunner (bought as a replacement for MtG (similar play-style, but different business model))
Ligretto (my wife bought it because of childhood memories)
Thunderstone Advance (bought as a replacement for Dominion)
Ticket to Ride: Europe
Viticulture (PnP version after I backed the collector's edition on the expansion kickstarter (Tuscany: Expand the World of Viticulture) in April)
This is my list of 10 games that I will play in 2014, hopefully at least 10 times each.
Because I started my list during February I decided to only count games that are played from this point on. Otherwise Carcassonne and Robinson Crusoe would be completed and no real challenge.
On the other side, some entries are meant as game-families rather than specific games (e.g. Dominion or Ticket to Ride) and so I will count any play with the base game or an expansion.
I tried to find a mix that fits my taste but also generates a challenge that is manageable with my wife and our gaming-group.
And here is where I failed:
Descent (2nd edition) (played 4 full games and a half)
Dominion: Intrigue (after 6 plays I bought Thunderstone and did not play this anymore)
Identik (only 1 game — drawing games are not everyones type)
Munchkin (we began to see the shortcomings...)
Pandemic (my wife just likes Robinson Crusoe sooo much more)
Pathfinder: Rise of the Runelords (cancel my preorder after 3 months delay)
Las Vegas (was the fallback game in the first place)
