Here is my entry in the Alternative 2015 Challenge: Play 15 of your unplayed games in 2015.

I have a lot of games that I have yet to play for various reasons, and this challenge seems like a great chance to shorten the list. Here is my list of 15 games I intend to play for the first time this year.

As you can see from this list, I went a little crazy on Kickstarter. I had to try hard not to fill it completely with games from Kickstarter.

I backed this game on Kickstarter, and I received it right at the end of 2014. I'm really looking forward to playing this one very soon.

I received my Kickstarter copy of this game some time back, and I have yet to play it. Now I'm ready to role the dice. I love the theme of this game as I'm a coffee junkie.

I backed this game because I thought it was a theme that my daughter would enjoy. I look forward to playing it with her this year.

This one was a gift from a friend. I love the theme, and I think 2 player games are going to see more play time this year.

I really fell for the microgame concept. This is one that I was particularly interested.

Another gift from a friend. This looks like an interesting game; although, I have to admit I haven't looked at it real close.

I really liked the idea of this game, but for some unknown reason, when it arrived I didn't play. I need to change that in 2015.

I backed this mostly because I liked the idea of creating a game from a classic book, yet like the book, I have yet to finish it. At least with the book I started.

A game that you can carry in your wallet and play with pieces you carry in your pocket anyways. What a concept!

Here's another concept: play the games you buy.

Maybe I'll pick up on the second concept with this challenge.

Letters to Santa

I'll save this one until December, but I had to include this one. We love Love Letter's and Christmas, so this seems like a natural fit.
