I am using The game list my group is doing as my HARDCORE list. Since we are going to try to stick to this list as much as possible!

One of the biggest issues with out group is that we don't have a set list of games to bring to the table, so we are constantly playing the new hotness. We looked to the 10 x 10 challenge to help us bring some games to the table more often. We starting to think, if we all had personal lists... then we would fight over what games we would play.

Alternates:

Mice and Mystics

Reflection:

So there were a lot of mistakes when making this list. First off, it was based on games we wanted to bring to the table with our gaming group. Obviously, that never ended up happening. One of the people involved in our group is to busy trying to bring the "new hotness" to the table. So the 4 games that he put to this list, never were brought to the table ever again. This year, the group is trying to go something different.

Another thing that happened... my wife and I had our first baby. This also destroyed a large amount of our time. The other issue, is that the group is no longer including my wife... because of this. Something that we both have to get used to.

All and all, I will be trying the challenge once again. Just not sure if I will have the Hardcore List next year. I need to get through the normal list.

After the first play, this is a cool resource management game. Very little down time between turns, and it keeps moving. The art is pretty amazing.

After the first play, this is an extremely tactical game. Mind you it's a lighter game, but still there seems like there is a bit more to dig into here.

d10-2 : 3/14/2015
It's been ages since this came to the table. Man does it play fast! Done in less than an hour. Great game though.

d10-3 : 3/14/2015
Everyone in the group was off playing something which left Alex and I alone. Why not play another round of Five Tribes. He ends up destroying me by 30 points based mostly on collecting sets. I was more paying attention to getting things on the board ASAP.

d10-4 : 4/2/2015

4 Player game this time. Still don't full get the full strategy and tactics of this game. I ended up with a solid 100 points thought and I can't complain. It's just a matter of figuring out what works best. Over all though, I am enjoying how this game players.

d10-5 : 5/30

# player game, and I am still getting the hang of it. I need to approach this game more like a game of Ingenious. I need to make sure I am going to collect points in all aspects of scoring. Though over all I do really enjoy how fast it plays and the depth to it.
d10-6 : Date Unknown!

Cleaning up and updating... since I haven't in a while! I can look up the date later but it was played.

d10-7 : 7/18/2015

Happy to play this as I am starting to get some of the nuance and finesse needed to play. Starting to learn how to read the board better, and to plan my moved better. The deeper we dig into this one, the happier I am with it.

We played our first game of this, and I have to say it ran a lot longer than it said on the side of the box. We also had max players for the game. It is fun, and I did enjoy it even though it was dragging at the end.

After playing some XMen dice masters, we were feeling like being more super heroes. The Super Intelligence of the Kree, decided to tangle with Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Ice Man, and Dare Devil. To be honest, Ice Man was the power house, because I was stacking my deck with combos for damage.

Brought this one to table, as I have been wanting to for some time. Sadly only two player. We worked with the new two player rules, which make things more interesting but still not as nice as playing with 5 people as I remember it. Victory ended up being a draw between the two of us. I don't think we hit everything correctly, so might do a little more research on how to play.

d10-2 : 6 /6

Brought to the table because I have been dying to play it. I absolutely love this game, and sadly I think I am the only one in my group that does. I lost horribly in this 3 player game of it, but I still enjoyed the hell out of it.

I freaking LOVE this game. And with 5 players it gets intense fast. Sure explaining it, it sounds like a dry euro... but when you play it. Oh that is where the joy comes out. The battling for influence... the dynasty cards. I am so happy I still have my prototype copy and I can't wait until my kickstarter copy comes in!

d10-2 : 2/28/2015
Second play this year, and it was fantastic. Eric, decided that he was going to start telling a story about his family. It all started with a "Spice" dealer that was starting the family. That family later started getting into incest, being that hte same two families kept having marriage alliances. All and all everyone was laughing, carrying and and having a blast. All with the prototype of the game. That is the other awesome thing! I have a copy of the game before it came out! I've had my copy for over a year! Can't wait for the finished version of the game.

d10-3 : 3/14/2015
Another EPIC game of Eternal Dynasty. 5 players in which the first generation saw TWO ERA Of Construction votes pass. 10 Palace/Fortresses on the board made it off to the races with ther person that started commanding them. Over all great finish to an epic game!

First time it came to the table. After watching the table top episode my thoughts on the game changed. IT came to the table, and no good came of it. Each of us thinking the other was the traitor... being acused of holding food... but in the end the loss of morale was our downfall!

d10-2 : 3/14/2015
Late into the night, we decided that we needed to give this another shot. How could we walk away from this one with a loss. We were determined to beat it, and the insanity of surviving the zombie apocalypse in the dead of winter. Again, none of us were the traitor... but again morale destroyed us. Each of us spending that entire time thinking the other was conspiring against, when it wasn't true. Again, it defeated us...

This is my alternate.



d10-1 : 4/4/2015

First time playing Mice and Mystics ever. I have to say I like its simplicity and ease of playing. There really isn't to much to the rules. Kind of like eclipse, it looks more difficult than it is. The only thing I didn't like was we striped the story out of it for the non RPG playing people. Next time, we sit down and play though the story as it was meant to be played.
