Despite my uneven gaming schedule, I'm going to attempt the 10x10 challenge this year. Well, lay down a list, at the very least. Some of these will not be completed, whereas some (Dungeon of Mandom) will probably be complete in a single evening! More than anything, it'll be a way to focus on the games that I've really been wanting to play more of.

My shortlist of games, in no particular order, are:
Battlecon
C&C Ancients
Shadowrun: Crossfire
ASL
Dunbine
Red7
Call of Cthulhu LCG
Dungeon of Mandom
Blood Bowl
Star Wars: Imperial Assault
Tragedy Looper
Space Empires 4x
Samurai Battles
Ninja Taisen
Heroes of Normandie

1/8: I've had this game sitting around for a long time and I try to push it on anyone who will try it. Unfortunately, I don't get a lot of chances to play 1v1, and the times that I do, my opponent prefers fast, simple games.

If I can get 10 plays of this (and I'll include War because I'm a cheater like that) then I'll have justified my War kickstarter pledge.

1/25 Scenario 4 Vs Sink: Defeat!










1/8: This is such a great wargame! It takes about as long to set up the game as to learn it. Which I guess can be a praise on the simplicity of the game or a slam on the time it takes to set it up... but either way don't let the simple rules fool you into thinking this game isn't historically accurate (I think? I wasn't there) or fun. I'd like to get through the rest of the scenarios in the first box, since I've got expansions 2 and 3 to go through, too!

1/22 Victory: Todd Guiness in a Biranvee destroyed Bern Bernings in a Dana O'Shea. This game is way more awesome than I thought.










1/8: Yeah, ok, there are probably like 2 other people in the Western Hemisphere that are interested in this game. But I translated it, damn it! I want to play it! And control giant flying biomechanical armor and have crazy awesome dogfights!! And since all the insane formulas are automated by my snazzy spreadsheet, it's even easier to play.

I might even try to write up some supplemental rules...!

1/12 - Begun ASL SK1 Scenario S5
1/13 - Continued S5
1/25 Solo: S2 War of the Rats - German victory
2/2 - Continued S5
2/3 - FInished S5 - VICTORY!






I am including Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #3 as well.

1/8: My current obsession. I finally finished a full scenario via Vassal, but it took like 2 months to get the whole thing done. I'll probably count each session instead of each scenario, because otherwise I don't think I'd be able to complete this in 2 years.

1/9: Aftermath (Campaign) - Imperial loss
1/9: Viper's Den (Campaign) - Imperial loss










1/8: I am finally done painting up my minis! It took so much time, I'll be a little bummed if I only ever get to play this a couple times. Hopefully I'll be able to get through a full campaign.

1/8: I've played this 3 times so far, every time the first scenario. Some day I'll get past it and into the juicy Normal Scripts! I have book full of basic scripts in Japanese, too.

Man, I love being the mastermind in any game that lets me.

BTW I fully don't expect to fulfill this one, but if I could...!

1/10 Solo Doomsday Machine scenario (easy) - Victory!
1/17 Solo Doomsday Machine scenario (normal) - Victory!
2/1 2p - Draw








1/8: This is another one that I doubt will happen. It has a long runtime (2-4 hours) and is somewhat complicated. But it's the best space 4x game out there, and I still haven't even looked at the expansion that I grabbed with it. If I ended up playing this game 10 times this year, I'll cut my hair into a reverse mohawk!

1/10: This is a deceptively simple game. There's some basic math involved in keeping up your finances and tracking which ships have which upgrades, but it really doesn't drag it out, at least when playing solo...

SPECIAL MENTION












1/8: I like this better than C&C: Ancients. It has minis! Easier rules! Cool honor mechanics! And even a 2nd rules set!!! Wow! How is this not the game everyone plays everytime forever?! But I guess it's not for everyone.

sigh.

Still, here it is. Another pipe dream, but I'll reserve the right to replace any of the above with this entry, as per my own 10x10+1 rule.
