Been a long time reader but recently becoming active here on BGG. I think doing the challenge will help me get a better idea of how often I play games and see where I need to focus more. I get in ruts and play the same games over and over.

My ten games have a heavy euro theme so hopefully I'll be able to get through them all.

I'll try to post my thoughts on each play through as I do them, at least for the euros. Not a lot I can say about a game of Hanabi.

Terra Mystica
Francis Drake
Dixit: Journey
Five Tribes
The Manhattan Project
7 Wonders
Race for the Galaxy
Cosmic Encounter
Caverna: The Cave Farmers
Hanabi

Picked up this expansion at Christmas and am looking forward to giving some of the new races a shot. A few have some cool features so I can't wait to dive in. TM can be a bit heavy so this one might take a while.

Received this for Christmas. Opened it up and took a look, the pieces are beautiful and the game looks solid. Looks like a great mid level euro.

Only got a chance to play this once last year so I want to dig in a bit more. I really enjoyed it the one time, I'm afraid to get too muc AP from it but we'll see.

Need to add a couple of lighter games in with all these euros. Dixie games are popular around my house and with the family. This will be an easy but very enjoyable 10.

Another Christmas present I haven't had a chance to try out yet. From what I understand this is the best expansion yet and I should love it.

Somehow I have missed out on playing this game over the years. A close friend just picked up a copy and we are going to dive in soon. Everything Ive read sne seen says this will be a very fun 10.

A classic, I probably play this game 40 times a year so I'll try to play with new heroes. The new expansion is coming soon!

Replaced Agricola this year as our standby Euro game. It is just more fun, more options. I've only played it a few times so I can't wait to get in 10 more plays.
