Normal Challenge

I'd love to play more games this year, but my schedule and family are going to make that a bit difficult. For that reason, I've decided to push real hard at mastering the games in my solitaire library. Many of these are wargames, some are not. I also reserve the right to modify this challenge to reflect any game acquisitions during the 2014 holiday season. Let the challenge begin!

House Rules:

In addition to the standard challenge rules, I will conduct my challenge as follows:
1 Games that have VASSAL modules will generally be played on VASSAL
2 All games must physically hit the table at least once
3 A brief AAR will be made as a comment to each geeklist entry
4 Plays will be cross-posted to Solitaire Games on Your Table

Games:
Castles of Mad King Ludwig
Enemy Coast Ahead
Fire in the Lake
The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43
Infection: Humanity's Last Gasp
Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001-?
Race for the Galaxy: Gathering Storm
Rallyman
Sentinels of the Multiverse (w/ expansions)
Warfighter: The Tactical Special Forces Card Game

Possible Alternates:
Carrier Battlegroup: Solitaire
Hostage Negotiator
Tiger Leader

Token Bezier games title, this is super fast and fun solo, and should be good if I can get a small group. BGG Secret Santa gifted me this, and I can't wait to play it some more.

As an air wargamer, this is surprisingly the only air wargame on the list. I'd like to run the campaign game a few times to really get a feel for operational planning in this title.

My only COIN title, and what a game it is. I'll mostly do this solo, but I won't be opposed to one or two PBEM games.

P500 is about to complete for this one. Need to challenge myself to see how well I can do in each type of U-boat!

First game from Volko Ruhnke that tackles a very difficult subject. Picked this up almost a year ago for solo play, and need to show this some love.

Has a reputation for one of the most fiendish AIs in boardgaming. I will defeat you, AI, if it takes me 10 plays or 100!!

1x Base Set + Rook City (Rook City location + Villain + Hero)
1x Base Set + Infernal Relics (Infernal Relics location + Villain + Hero)
1x Base Set + Shattered Timelines (Shattered Timelines location + Villain + Hero)
5x Base Set + all expansions

I've always been interested in Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising, and this game seems to nail that theme.

This Solo KS should fit in nicely as an alternate if I can't get enough plays of my monster games.

Next out of the chute from DVG in the Leader series. Combines my love of the Leader series with my interest in WWII tank combat!
