I wanted to include games that I think I will enjoy playing. I am including games that I consider somewhat feasible to make it to ten plays. Online plays are not counted but I will count solo plays.

The list does not include the 10 games I would most like to play 10 times in 2015 but rather games that I would not mind having played 10 times during 2015 in my usual gaming settings.

EDIT 2016-01-03: Published games with at least ten plays in 2015:
1: Guillotine (38)
2: Gobb'it (32)
3: Skull (26)
4: Hearts of AttrAction (25)
5: Bohnanza (23)
6: Castles of Mad King Ludwig (13)
7: Trains: Rising Sun (11)
8: Sequence (11)
9: Terra (11)
10: Ticket to Ride (11)
11: Suburbia (10)
12: Takenoko (10)
13: Carcassonne (10)

EDIT 2016-01-03: The original list and its progress:
The progress (69/100):

1 Suburbia (2012)
2 Guillotine (1998)
3 Takenoko (2013)
4 Ticket to Ride (2004)
5 Carcassonne (2000)
6 Manifest (2014)
7 Afrikan tähti: Retkikunnat (2014)
8 Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island (2013)
9 Rappakalja Extreme (2008)
10 Space Alert (2009)

As I'm doing this just for fun I do not intend to take part in the hard core challenge and might thus update the list. Half of the games on this list seem to be from within the past two years, which is probably affected by the fact that I have not been an active board gamer for longer than that. This is also the first BGG challenge I take part in.

EDIT 2015-07-30: Currently I'm at 84% in the regular 10x10 challenge if I simply take the 10 most played games right now.
EDIT: 2015-09-12: Now at 91%.
EDIT: 2015-10-31: Now at 100%.

I do not yet even own the game but have had a chance to try it out for two weeks. That period included eight plays, most of which were solo plays. I'm not that much into solo playing but for this game I really enjoyed the challenge. Once I manage to buy the game, I think ten solo plays will come rather easily, hopefully I can make it to ten non-solo plays as well.

edit:
solo play results: 83, -, 113
Purchased the game for myself.

This is another game I don't yet own. It's, however, a game I've played quite a lot recently and believe I will play it often in 2015 as well even if I do not buy it for myself. As it's a short game ten plays should not be too difficult.

Edit: First plays: two 5-player games, two 4-player games
two 4-player and two 5-player games in France
Purchased my own copy. Played two games with 6 players, 6 days and double Guillotine decks.

This is a very cute and fun game which should be easy to bring to the table at home as well. I expect to see many plays in 2015 and ten should not be fairly easy as I've already taught many people to play the game.

edit: First game of the challenge, completed just 45 min after midnight on the first day of 2015

Ticket to Ride is another game I have not played as much as I would have wanted lately. It's always enjoyable and sometimes very intense, depending how well your plans play out. I count all variants and expansions for this item and thus I think ten plays should be manageable.

edit: 5p W, 2p W, 3p L, 3x local multiplayer on Android
I already have more than 10 plays of Ticket to Ride so I don't need to count plays of Ticket to Ride Europe here.

For some reason I have not been playing Carcassonne lately at all. It's still a very nice game and I have not played it that much. I count all plays of Carcassonne with and without expansions for this item.

This is the only Kickstarter game on my original list of ten games. I like the game and since it has two rule variants I expect that ten plays would still certainly be enjoyable. Finding the opportunities to play it ten times might be a bit challenging though.

edit:
plays: 3p reg

This is the only expansion on my list. The base game usually gets a fair amount of plays but hopefully I can play it with this expansion, which, if nothing else, at least makes the game more varied. I've played it twice in 2014 and liked it a lot more than the original. I count the official shortened version as a full game since the long version with the expansion just takes WAY too long to play. I'm not sure if I can replace ten plays of the base game with the expansions but hopefully I manage.

This is the most complex game on my original list and the only co-op game, although I have nothing against co-ops in general. Here again the solo play possibility will help me a lot to have a reasonable chance at ten plays. I would really like to play it with other people as well so hopefully all of my plays in 2015 won't be solos.

edit: first game a solo game: lost Jenny's rescue
3x solo, 3x multi'layer

This game is the only "party game" in my list. As such there are always opportunities to play it and it is usually well received as well. Of course it might be a tad challenging to make it to ten plays. Once you go through all the cards once the game will be a bit less fun, I guess, but I don't think ten plays in one year would bore me.

edit: 1x 7-player Rappakalja, 5-player Rappakalja Extreme, 8-player Rappakalja

Not unlike Robinson Crusoe and Suburbia, Space Alert might also be saved on this list by solo plays. I like the concept and the solo play was quite fun but I've yet to manage to get this game to the table. The soundtrack also limits a bit on where you can play it. As it's not a long game it shouldn't be that difficult to get some plays once I find a "crew" for my space ship.

edit: 5 solo plays + two solo missions (one fail and one 3p success)
