and I participated in the 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each. We've had a great time with it, but also noticed that we have been ignoring a lot of other games in favor of working on the 10 x 10 and we now have a backlog of games from both the end of 2013 as well as 2014 to catch up on.

So we're doing a different challenge for 2015, and we'd love to invite everyone to come enjoy the journey with us. Billy would like to focus on our games in shrink and I would like to focus on games that we haven't played in a few years, so this challenge allows for both categories.

The basic challenge is that you pick two games each month, and that month you play them each at least 2 times each. Simple as that.

Here are the rules:

d10-1 Add an item to this geeklist as your way of indicating that you want to participate. I suggest creating a geeklist of the games you're playing and link to that.

d10-2 Each month, at the beginning of the month you post the two games you have chosen. You can choose them ahead of time, or as the month happens. As long as you pick two and play them each twice, you're on track.

d10-3 THE GAMES: You must pick two games that are either in shrink or that you haven't played in over 2 years. Billy wanted to have it open only to games in shrink, but I want the challenge open to anyone, regardless of whether they've bought a ton of games recently, so this is our compromise.

d10-4 This is on the honor system, so I won't be checking but please pick your games before you play them.

d10-5 There will be 12 "Points" awarded, one each month. You either complete the challenge for that month, or you don't. If you miss a month, you just move on to the next month. Each month, please update you geeklist item with the games that you chose and when you played them, as well as any other information you'd like to share, like why you picked the games or how you liked them.

Stuff:
I'm hoping to have a microbadge made, and ideally, two: one (maybe silver) so people can show they are participating, and one (probably gold) to show they completed the challenge. If anyone wants to design the microbadge, let me know.

Also, I'll give away some geekgold to a random person who participates as well as to a random person who finishes the challenge. The geekgold will be given away at the end of the challenge.

Anyone can join in at any month, but you'll only get full credit if you complete January through December 2015.

Errata:

Boardgames count and RPG's count; video games do not (for this challenge).
Online and digital copies of boardgames can count if you feel the experience of playing the game that way resembles playing the physical game.

Thank you for joining us and Happy Gaming!

- Nikki and Billy

Rules additions and clarifications:
12/28/14
Any geekgold contributed to this list will be given away at the end by random draw of those who complete the challenge.
Make one post and update it with the games you choose and play as you go. No need to create a new post each time.
You can use expansions as games, yes.

What a great idea!

I'm going to focus exclusively on bicycle racing games for this challenge. With over 60 still unplayed in my collection, this will help make a nice dent in the pile.

[12/20] I have a tentative list up for the whole year. Other than actually getting them to the table, the hardest part of the challenge will be the foreign languages involved. The second half of the year is mostly filled with games in languages I'm not very familiar with. Fortunately, I do have some back-up games to work with if I can't find translations or do them myself.

Yikes! What have I gotten myself into now?

[1/3] "And they're off!" At least that's what they used to say at the horse races. Did my first play through of Leader 1 today. This is a promising start to my New Year of working on the backlog of unplayed games!

[1/4] One down, twenty-three to go! I can see the problem with these challenges. Now I want to play the game 10 times, or more. The best part is that after 2 or 3 plays I know it well enough to be confident to suggest it at a game night.

And I'll keep all further commentary on my Geeklist!

OK, so I'll keep most of my commentary on my geeklist. I do want to say that this challenge has inspired me to think ahead to next year already. I've filled in a few holes and plan on an Avalon Hill 2 x 2 x 12 challenge. It will be limited to games published by the company before 1971. Most will either be games I missed the first time through or haven't played in over 45 years. Back to my roots!

[3/29] First quarter results: 3 months down, six games played twice each. This challenge is doing exactly what I hoped it would--help me make a dent in my unplayed bicycle racing game collection. Since I'm also using them in a 3 x 33 Challenge, I'm getting in enough time with each of them to give me a better chance of ranking them for future play and study. Thanks, again, to Nikki and Billy for setting this up!

January: Leader 1 ; Cycling Party Wooo Hooo! 1 month down....11 to go...
February: Peleton ; Windschatten
March: Maillot Arc-en-Ciel ; First to the Line
April: 2Ruote ; Yellow Jersey
May: Maillot Jaune ; Pistard

[12/29] A disappointing finish to the year as may be seen from my completion list. An extraordinary summer at work ended any hope of moving forward and the Fall played out as anticipated, though I'd hoped to persevere if I made it that far. Regardless, I got 9 games to the table that would probably not have made it without this challenge, so Thanks, again, for setting it up!

I do have something in mind for 2016, though the winter looks pretty busy. It's so sad that life intrudes on gaming.cry

Amy and I are totally in! We did the 10x10 challenge in 2014, and while it was fun, it was tough (I had to swap out a few games with some iPad games I played to actually complete the challenge (we had a ton of life changes in 2014)).

With that said, two games twice a month sounds so much better than sacrificing playing games on the shelf so you can get a game on the table for the eighth, ninth, or tenth time for the year.

We can't wait to get started!

Stars after the "|" indicate additional plays of that game throughout the year (mostly just for tracking purposes for myself)!

Last year I tried and semi succeeded on the 10x10 challenge, but I am a bit of a cult of the new member.

I also have many unplayed in shrink games on my shelf.

This sounds like a perfect match for me.

We have a goal to play all our unplayed games that we have as of the end of 2014. We were pretty successful in 2014 with our 2013 list, but I realized that many of them only hit the table once. I think it would be good to get at least a second play of it right away, to help solidify the rules better.

I don't like having too many different Geeklists, so I'll be using my 10x10 & General Game Tracking list. I'll mark the top of each entry that applies to this challenge so people can see our comments, but I'll also link them here.

Brought mid 2014 shortly after I played Sag's mir! - Filme, but unplayed since then.


March

1. Die Alchemisten
A gift from my very generous Secret Santa last year, but I was unfortunately not able to test it until now.

22. Board Game: Lords of Xidit [Average Rating:7.13 Overall Rank:662]
Board Game: Lords of Xidit
Ok let's try this one aswell. We are participating in the 10x10 challenge, so that will help a bit at the start of the year.

January
1 Arcadia Quest
2 Lords of Xidit
Well that was a great start, missed one play directly the first month I'm still going to try to make the rest successful.

February
1 Carcassonne
2 Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game

March
1
2

Ok I think it's safe to say that I'm really bad at this. So I will just back out now, before it consumes any more time, while it doesn't work for me anyway...

I'm in.

Our family of 5 "cut the cord" (dropped satellite TV) for the new year. In preparation for this momentous lifestyle change, I started last September acquiring board games (most of which weren't opened until Christmas), enlarging my family's collection from about 30 to over 100. In addition, I've been thrifting games and participated in the BGG 2014 Thrifty Secret Santa exchange, so...I have plenty of options for this. As a result, I'm further limiting this for myself to games that will only be played in 2-player sessions (hence the extra "X2" in the title of my geeklist), which will be played between my high school daughter, London (main gaming partner), and myself.

[Edit 02/28/2015] Summary and impressions for each session are on my geeklist linked in the title of this entry.
