Hi! I've decided that I should join this challenge, not least because I have games that are waiting to be played, either with a few friends or solo/2p. My partner not being a gamer (as a scientist, he considers boardgames to be 'childish' occupations thumbsdown) makes this challenge an even more difficult one to manage, but I may use my spare time during the week for having good gaming sessions. meeple

P.s. There is no order of preference in the list.
P.s.s. I haven't yet received most of the 2014 Kickst*rter games I backed, so I haven't included them in this list. Some may, however, join the 2015 10x10 geeklist next year.

Original idea here.

I like this game because of its major 'trade/valuation' mechanic.



Played 04/05/14, with an 8-year old autist child with asperger. He liked the game, but couldn't manage anything outside of his focus on 'winning the game' at all cost, so he piled up on camels and some goodies/tokens exchanges: he couldn't manage anything past the '1 card taken=1 card from the draw pile', as he didn't want to trade more than one card at the draw phase (less interaction for him).

This one is really challenging as a solo card game, because strategic decisions/hand management can impact on the 'luck' side of card drafting.



Played 28/07/14: I had forgotten a few things since last time I played, so it took me a while (2 levels) to go back to speed with the mechanic. This was a good win, no casualties, and made me remember some points in the movie. Highly recommended.

This one is great for evenings with friends. It is easy to understand but also great for squabbling about rules! whistle

This one I have in mind to play with the neighbours' kids - lots of fun ahead! meeple



Played 04/05/14, with an 8-year old autist child with asperger and his dad. He liked the game because he already knew The Island, but got bored as we discussed rules and left the game halfway through, to be replaced by his mother. Otherwise, no issues there, we enjoyed the game, which is v. good, considering it's from 1988 - still very playable.

This is a good deck-building mechanic, but 'blind' - it all depends on the full cooperation of others. French edition includes the Fireworks expansion.

Great 2p game - I just love the 'investigation' theme, with its modular board/characters rotas mechanic. No two games are the same! My game includes the Goodies expansion.



Played 04/05/14, with an 8-year old autist child with asperger. This is the game, surprisingly, that he understood the most - guessing and investigating is good fun and we enjoyed a good game, which he won single-handedly. Considering that the game is for 14+ years old players, it's a success.

I've added this one to the list, just because I'm fed up about playing online - I really want to get people to play it, it's so much fun!

I really want to play more solo games with this one - as an investigator, you really feel that you're up against evil Ancient Ones! goo

This is one of my favourite dice game. I own both the French Dice Game Plus and the German Dice Game scoring pads.



Played 28/07/14, *solo game* notepad, with a good score of 69. The mistake I made in places was to rush to the score with the towns and knights, which left me too few opportunitie to score anything but for spare roads (ones only in terms of score) and cities (this one being next to impossible to get with 6 die).

This little PnP gem is great. The cards are not language-dependent, which allows me to play with friends.
