My favorite game of all time. Play this 10 times should be easy enough.

This is a game group favorite and I really enjoy the hybrid nature and asymmetric gameplay.

I'm more of a thematic gamer, but I really enjoy the mechanics in this game and I look forward to trying all of the races, including the expansion races.

My favorite of the tableau builders and a game that gets ignored because of newer games. One of my wife's favorites.

Uwe's worker placement epic with dwarves, farming, mining, and adventures. I love all of the options, the building up of the cave, and leveling up your dwarves. It has a lot of neat options and combinations, while maintaining a pretty standard worker placement vibe.

Another of my wife's favorites. I haven't played all of the scenarios from the original release and I also have two of the promo scenarios and the expansion. That gives me tons of material to play this one and it's easily soloed.

My wife's pick and one of her newest favorites, a tactical game with lots of ways to win and fun blocking.

I didn't include Netrunner, even though I know I'll easily hit 10 plays (more likely to hit 100 plays), however I play this game with the same group. We all just started playing it and we're cautiously optimistic about this one. I'd like to play it at least 10 times so I know that I'm investing my time in the games I enjoy the most.

This is an old favorite with 100 plays logged, but lately it's been languishing on the shelf. I have a good number of unplayed cards and expansions and it's time for that to end. I'm planning on playing this 10 times and deciding what to do with it.

I've only played this game a few times, but I definitely enjoy it and want to see more of it. I'm planning on playing mostly solo, but two friends have expressed interest in playing as well. I have both expansions that are out now, so once the solo scenario from the original box has been exhausted, I'll move onto The Lost Legion.

The newest game on this list and I'm planning on starting a campaign at some point in 2015 which should make 10 plays easy to achieve.
