Well, I won't be doing the 10x10 challenge again this year after last year ended kind of on a disappointing note. That note being 55% completed. I really liked the idea through half the year but after awhile I started wanting to play other games and not wanting to be tied to games I promised to play so it suffered and we didn't make it.

So this year, we'll do the 15 Unplayed Games in 2015. Going to call it 15, but there will probably be more games listed than 15, but I want to at least get 15 done this year.

Part of what I am going to tie to this is that I cannot buy a new game until one of these gets played, I may give myself credit for a couple of these due to some incoming early Kickstarter Games that I am wanting to back, but for the most part, if I want a new game, one of these has to be played prior.

By the way, there are others participating in "Alternate" 2015 challenges, see them HERE!!!!!!

So instead of Black Fleet which we officially played on NYE, Kerensa picked out this little hand me down game that we picked up from Alex Eding who was just trying to unload some games, so for the price of shipping, this one was ours.

I've had this on the table a couple times, half played one time, but this year we play it and see what we think.

Also includes the Western Map Expansion.

Had this one forever and only had it out on the table one time and that play never materialized. So it's go time for Brewster's Millions The Board Game!

Played June 26th two player. Will have thoughts on the podcast. But I hope to play it 4/5 player tonight as well.

Base set and Lair of the Wyrm. This one has been on the table more than any other game in our collection, and it gets played, just not by the rules as my 4 year old daughter loves to have battles with the heroes and the monsters in this one. But this year, we descend into the abyss, or something like that.

***Might be a bit harder to pull off now that the BiL has picked up Imperial Assault***

Battle of the Five Armies goes right along with this as well.

WotR was my Secret Santa gift 2 years ago and it still hasn't been played, I owe a huge apology to the Santa who sent this my way. Hopefully this year we can make up for this slight.

This was a hand me down game and when I first saw it I wanted to play it, but I wanted to push this one on my brothers who I thought would enjoy the history without it being a huge rules heavy game, but I haven't managed to pull that off yet.

The more I see of this one, the more I question my gut feeling that my family would like it, I may have missed the mark completely on it, but we'll try to find out if I can get up the nerve to break it out and teach it.

No excuse whatsoever for this having never been played on the table. I've played the digital iOS version, but never at the table.

Picked up solely because it was dirt cheap at B&N on clearance. Need to play to see if it deserves space on the shelf next to Castles of Burgundy or if Feld is going to be a one game pony in our household.

Nice mid/light weight Euro, should be an easy game to get to our table, but after I picked this up for $8 in an auction it's stayed buried on the shelf where it was placed when it first arrived.

Really was lucky to get this from a guy in our game group who was downsizing his collection on the first night I ever showed up, but it's still not been played. Love the look of the game and love the auction, just need to teach and play.

Played on 6/6/2015

Will post thoughts later.

The Grand daddy on this list, but surprisingly one of the newer games that I have acquired, this one once again via a hand me down.

Picked this one up at Christmas thinking it would be a good match for the family, here's hoping I was right, probably going to be one of the first ones I try to get to the table and if that happens before 2015, I'll go ahead and remove it from the list.

Well technically this one was played yesterday on the 31st so I am going to remove it from the challenge, BUT I am going to leave it on the list because it was really a lot of fun. Honestly, if it were just a little less confrontational, I would recommend it to all my Ticket to Ride playing friends instead of Ticket to Ride!!
