Books and Boards- MplsMatt's 10x10, now with reading!
- Matt Clark(MplsMatt)United States
So I've been wanting to try a 10x10 for the last year but wasn't sure if it would be too much to ask of the other game players in my life to play games I picked over and over. However, after talking to my buddies:Recommend

about their solo 10x10's I decided to revisit the challenge. After looking at the "normal" vs "hardcore" rules and realizing that I could switch up the games if I wanted to or switch back and forth between solo and multiplayer, I decided I would go for it.
However, to spice things up I decided to include another challenge for myself. Somewhere between finishing high school and finishing college, I became a really miserable, undisciplined reader. I'd like to challenge myself to read 10 books over the next year (not a big deal for many of you, I realize). To make it extra fun, I am choosing books that tie into the themes of the games I'm playing. A couple of months ago, I listened to the "Revolutions" podcast about the English Civil Wars before playing Cruel Necessity for the first time and I thought it really added to the experience. I'm hoping to create a similar experience with this challenge.
This is clearly a work in progress, so the books and games may change before
my bitter defeatthe end of the year. Also, I welcome suggestions of books (particularly in the 200-400 page range) for any of the games below.
