It's June 28th and we are a little late to the party, but we sat down today and picked 10 games that we would like to play 10 times by the end of the year! We have been doing this anyway, Sanssouci, Escape: The Curse of the Temple, Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia, High Frontier, Amerigo, and Terra Mystica are already above 10 plays, but we decided to choose games that were not already at 10 plays.

We decided to try the Eric Jome pre-2005 challenge, that gave us a focus for part of our list, great suggestion!

Sam is keeping track of all our plays, as we always play together.

1.) 6/26
2.) 6/26
3.) 6/29 - Sam won by 3 points, he managed to get the mannequin pis!
4.) 7/4
5.) 7/19 - we had quite the wedding on Thursday for Sam's sister, that really knocked down our playing. Also I have been on quite the losing streak, so that might be affecting play as well.
6.) 7/30
7.) 8/9 - taught this game at Dragonflight, it was really tight 4 players!
8.) 9/1 - Sam won with an excellent gentleman strategy.
9.) 9/1 - Sam won with an amazing work of art strategy.
10.) 9/1 -Kathryn won by building all 6 of her buildings, and getting to ten on the architect track.

1.) 5/4
2.) 7/1 - one of the dummy bots using completely random cards made it to the finish before us! I think that means we both lost!
3.) 7/24
4.) 7/24
5.) 8/2
6.) 8/2 - played 3 player with Sam's brother, he loved it!
7.) 8/9 - played in a special game at Dragonflight with multiple levels, portals, starburst that made you invincible for a full round, and lots of ways to die...
8.) 9/14 - used portals ala Dragonflight X game. It was so fun! Kathryn had a near perfect game.
9.) 9/14 - decided to have all 6 extra bots be NPC characters running off the same set if instructions but with different starting positions and directions. At one point Sam was wedged in between four bots with two HP left. Needless to say he died, but pulled out the win anyway!
10.) 9/29 - Epic game with five flags to finish out the challenge, we used candies placed around the board to help distract us from the goal. Very very fun, 3+ hour play. Oh, and I won, mainly because Sam got sucked into the whirlpool of doom.

1.) 1/27
2.) 7/6
3.) 7/6 - added 'second kind' expansion. Loved the new tiles, I am terrified of sea stars now! Reef is a long game, I am wondering about variants that might speed it up!
4.) 7/9 - reef played beautifully today. The expansion has been integrated and I still love the new tiles and cards. Also, I won with 100 points, but mostly because Sam was trying a new strategy.
5.) 7/24
6.) 9/20
7.) 9/20
8.) 9/27 - each of our shrimp had a small piece of candy they "guarded" until we fed the poor shrimp to our parrotfish, and got the candy. This made the last three games fly by! This made us think that this is a great idea for game nights too.
9.) 9/27
10.) 9/27

1.) 6/28
2.) 6/28
3.) 7/5
4.) 8/26 Sam just couldn't afford both the expensive plant and the 18th city to power for the win. Both of us powered 17, but Kat had more money. First play with robots. That tightened up the two player game nicely!
5.) 9/6 played Australia map for the first time, fascinating! Gives you second income source and distractions!
6.) 9/6 played India map for the first time. We had a really powerful robot who was able to build the first city each turn for free!
7.) 9/25 played Japan
8.) 9/25 played Russia, really long game...
9.) 9/28 Korea, love this map!
10.) 9/28 China - tie!

1.) 7/1
2.) 7/2
3.) 7/2 - third tie in as many games...
4.) 7/24
5.) 7/24
6.) 9/7 - we played wrong, our kings were far too powerful!
7.) 9/7 - we decided to play five times today. Epic!
8.) 9/7 - I finally figured out how to trounce Sam, I got a tad bit aggressive, and created some pretty epic conflicts.
9.) 9/7 - we really got it, strong play by both of us.
10.) 9/7 - oops! I figured out why you don't start with conflicts before you have strength on the table, I ended up really behind, and never remotely caught up, but I had fun trying to get back in. Not one conflict went my way...
