This list for GRAB members who would like to publicize their accomplishments and to keep us updated as they attempt to fulfill their personal gaming goals of 2015. This list is open to any member of GRAB, past or present.

Among previous years' goals we had one brave soul attempt to play War of the Ring, some wanted play a gamer's gamer a week, another wanted to play each of my Splotter games at least once.

I like this game, so I resolve to play every Start World.

There are 21 Start Worlds from four expansions, finding players willing to play is a problem. I was only able to play RftG 24 times last year.

Epsilon Eridani 3/7
Old Earth 4/21
Rebel Freedom Fighters 5/2
New Sparta 6/3
Frontier Capital 6/20
Earth's Lost Colony 6/30
Alpha Centauri 07/14

I was trying to think of a challenge for 2015 that wouldn't be too difficult to complete. My past resolutions seemed easy(-ish) at the start, but always became overwhelming. I suspect this year will be no different. I began by making an arbitrary list of a dozen or so games that I would like to play this year. I gave it to Andy and asked him to help me narrow it down to six. I figured I should be able to get a half dozen unplayed/rarely played games played in a year's time. He said, "Let's do a dozen. A game a month shouldn't be that hard." Hahahahaha...well, we'll see. zombie

Here's the list:

Caverna
The Battle of Five Armies
Fields of Arle (will need to buy this first whistle )
Luna
Terra Mystica
Nations
mbWalnut Grove - Mar 7
mbSuburbia - Feb 19
Macao
Robinson Crusoe
Navegador
mbTzolk'in (Then I can use my new corn that I got for Christmas!) - Jan 11

Twelve games. That's it. No additions. Only one play per game required. I can go whole weeks without playing games if I want.
I can do this.

EDIT: Ok, I know I said I wasn't going to add anything, but after thinking about it some more I thought it would make more sense to do fifteen. You know, 15 in '15? So here are the other three:

mbKeyflower - May 2
The Princes of Machu Picchu
Rococo

And that's the final list. Really.

I resolve to play each of my 3M Bookshelf games at least once this year. Yes, even the "Exciting Involvement Game." This will be easy for some, and a challenge for others. I suspect that it will be an interesting reflection on the history of our hobby.

Acquire 3/17
Bazaar 1/13, 3/12, 6/6, 7/16
Contigo 12/15
Executive Decision 2/17
Facts in Five 1/6
Feudal 9/8
Go 7/21
High-Bid 11/10
Image 12/31
Jumpin 4/7
Mr. President 11/24
Oh-Wah-Ree 6/9
Phlounder 4/4
Point of Law 5/19
Stocks & Bonds 6/9
Twixt 2/3, 2/7

If I am able to expand the shelf this year (looking for a cheap copy of Contigo in good condition), I will add such games to the list.

Acquired Oh-Wah-Ree on 6/4.

Completed September 8.

Acquired Contigo, High-Bid, Image, and Mr. President on 11/5. Will try to get them played yet this year, but they are officially "out of scope."

Complete phase II December 31.

We'll see how this goes - I haven't researched how easy/hard this might be outside of knowing that X is actually quite easy! Similar to Bruce's alphabet game title resolution previously, I'm going to try to play one game by a designer whose first, middle, or last name begins with one of the letters of the alphabet for each letter of the alphabet. I think I worded that last sentence horribly, but it'll do.

(I reserve the right to move these designers around to mix and match as necessary... )

A Andreas Steding The Staufer Dynasty
B Steffen Benndorf Qwixx
C Vlaada Chvátil Space Alert
D Dave Chalker Get Bit!

Before January is up, I need to commit to some design goals for the year.

Current designs on the drawing board:
- Doodle Duels
- Rapunzel
- Resourceful
- They Fight Crime

I commit to having two new games polished enough to present at Protospiel Ann Arbor this summer (possibly from the list above).

I commit to making at least one submission to a publisher this year.

I commit to creating professional sell sheets for all games I haven't shelved.

I finally decided on something for this year. I will resolve to go through all of my game rankings on BGG and update the ratings/comments.

It might seem like a housekeeping type of resolution, but I'll probably have to re-play some games into order to re-evaluate them properly.
