Last year I made three lists, but only managed to finish one of them. Learning from past mistakes I decided to create five list for this year (hoping to finish one at least). Just like last year I am not going to switch out games once the year has started, I am using this as added incentive to keep playing the games we have instead of always playing the latest and newest (thats what 100x1 is for after all).

Two player games and games I mostly play with only one opponent:

BattleCON: War of Indines:
Famiglia: mb
1/31: vs. Prince Adam
A Few Acres of Snow:
Field of Glory: The Card Game: mbmb
2/6: two plays against Stefán. He didn't like it, which means I'll need to find someone else for the remaining eight plays. (He won both times without trying.)
Rosenkönig: mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
1/10: We played a little speed game without thinking more than 1.5 moves ahead.
1/31: I tend to lose a lot
5/30: vs. Stefán
8/8: vs. the coward; lost one, won one
8/10: Very unlucky opening hand for David. Out of the first 7 moves he could only move twice, he could not recover from that opening.
8/31: Stefán lost last minute
P.I.:
Metropolys:
Friese's Landlord: mbmb
3/13: 2 plays, we made some rules errors, but had loads of fun
Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game: mb
2/22: Mission H1, I played rebels and lost. The Tie-Phantom hurt badly, but worse was me running over two of my own ships whistle
Camden: mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
1/31: 3 plays, Ásdís played and enjoyed it.
4/6: won twice
8/5: David's first try. I think we all agreed that this is a very odd game that makes one think in unusual ways.
8/30: 4 plays

Games on the light end of the spectrum:

Cheaty Mages!:
Among the Stars:
Sail to India: mbmb
5/1: Finally got this played after it sat in my collection for a year or so.
8/10: I made a losing move very early in the game by building a church for VP instead of gathering momentum. Didn't recover
Felix: The Cat in the Sack: mbmbmbmb
1/2: One of my favourite games lately. The second game I won with over 80 points. (I think that's a lot.)
5/1: 3 players, I won
8/8: 4players, Laurenz won
Tokaido:
Mascarade: mb
2/8: quit after only one play, part of the group didn't like it

2/19: 3players, I won as Chrysoprase.
3/21: two 3player games, fun as ever.
Trains: mbmbmbmbmb
1/21: Three two-player games which I all lost. I'm as bad at this game as I enjoy it.

Pandemic: mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
1/1: Three two-player games. We had our first victory with me as medic!

3/13: Medic and the green guy. Won on normal level.
4/23: It looked good for a while, then desaster struck...
6/22: Lost 3 games in a row, partly due to extremely unlucky shuffling
8/22: Lost a near win due to some thoughtless actions yuk
Love Letter: mbmbmbmbmbmbmb
2/8: Nina, Narfi and I. Nina won.
2/19: Nina, Jói and I. Nina won. I had a streak of guessing Jóis card in the start of most rounds, which was funny and made the game nicely fast whistle
3/27: Nina won the set
4/6: 3players
4/19: The zaniest game of LL I ever played.
5/1: The fastest game ever
8/8: 4 players. Laurenz won this one as well.

One more list for good measure:

Power Grid: mbmbmb
1/1: Brazil map. This was my first game on an expansion map and I was positivly surprised about how fun it was. I won by a margin because Stefán concentrated too much on garbage, driving his own prices up and leaving the other resource markets to me.
1/10: North America map. We tought a new player and it dragged on a lot towards the end. Still fun.
2/9: 4 players, Spain/Portugal map. I was second, hoarded my cash one turn too many.
Freedom: The Underground Railroad: mbmbmbmb
3/14: What a ride, and educational too; fantastic game!
3/20: 3players, lost badly. the Prince was bored, but he mostly dislikes new games.
4/2: 2players, Prince Adam is not a fan
4/3: solo, lost badly. Had a really bad combination of red cards popping up.
A Study in Emerald:
Tikal:
Lost Valley: The Yukon Goldrush 1896: mbmbmb
1/2: Three games, three players. Somehow it always seems to end too fast. Last game we decided to change the end condition to 20 nuggets and it was a tight race.
Village: mbmb
2/6: very tight game, won being one point ahead. Sometimes I'm surprised at how well this game is balanced.
8/5: incl. the inn expansion. very fun game. David was sadly not able to compete because he played with a false rule in mind.
Steam: mbmbmb
2/12: 3players, Canada/USA map. First game for the Coward and Nína. Everybody loved it.
2/17: 3players, Canada/USA map.
3/16: 5players Ruhr map. Good fun. I lost baaaadly, had a hard time following the game.
Dungeon Lords:
20th Century:
Greenland: mb
4/4: my first multiplayer game, very fun. it's not that difficult once you have all the little rules down
