This is my 2015 challenge to myself to play some of my favorite games more often. I've picked ten of my favorite games, and I'm resolved to getting them each played ten times before the end of 2015. In 2014 I got 60% of my plays finished! I think I'll do better in 2015!

If you like these games, let me know, so I can track you down at Game gatherings and get them played! Happy New Year to all of you!

This year I will more actively try to get 7 Wonders played than I did last year. I have the Leaders expansion and still haven't tried that. So I have lots of incentive to get this to the table.



07/11 @ Greg K's cabin, teaching it to a group.
07/11 @ Greg K's cabin, a second game.
10/23 @ Game Club.

This is a great, casual card game that plays with 2-6. My mom likes it so I should easily get this to the table 10 times.

Core worlds will be harder to get to the table than others. I've only played it once, so I'm not great at teaching it yet. But after playing it 10 times, I'll be an expert -- at teaching it.



02/14 @ CABS against Anton. I lost by ONE point!
02/28 @ CABS against Anna and Jeff C. I did poorly.

Coup gets played a lot! The games are so quick though, that I'll only count sessions of play rather than individual games. I know I'll get this done, because it's really popular in game club at school.



03/20 @ Game Club. Played for about 30 mins. with K. J., M. H., M. F., S. D., and S. M.
04/06 @ Bob's. Played several games with Ryan, Olivia, and Bob.
07/11 @ Greg K's cabin.
10/23 @ CABS for about 30 mins.
10/30 @ Game Club.
11/06 @ Game Club.

This was a game I added to last year's list in August, and it got played ten times by December. It continues to be a favorite and I hope to play it a lot more this coming year.



02/06 @ CABS
02/28 @ CABS with Anton, Jeff C., Tony, and Jonathan. All but 1 won, including the betrayer, oddly enough.
03/14 @ CABS with Jeff C., Tony, and Karen. Everybody but I won, because Jeff was a better hoarder than I was.
04/03 @ CABS with Jonathan, Tony, and Henry. Disappointing defeat for all.
05/23 @ Dojo Game Night. Julia, the Betrayor, won. cry
06/06 @ Origins. We exiled one too many non betrayers.
08/07 @ CABS. Taught to new members. Almost won.
08/15 @ CABS. Won a five player - ALL 5 WON!
08/29 @ CABS. Three of four players won. The loser was the betrayer, so too bad for him. Thanks to Jonathan, Tony, and Jeff!
11/15 @ CABS. Betrayed by Karen! angry Thank goodness she's going to New Zealand!


This completes my ten plays of Dead of Winter for the year!

Mice and Mystics is a fun cooperative adventure game. I need to finish the original story, on which I stalled out. I might be able to get my 14 year old daughter to finish the story with me...



02/16 @ home. Successfully finished Ch. 7 as a solitaire adventure.
03/21 @ CABS. Completed Ch. 2 with Jeff W., Jonathan A., and Matt.
04/03 @ CABS. Completed Ch. 3 with Jeff W., Jonathan, and Henry!
08/21 @ CABS. Attempted Ch. 4. with Jeff W., Jeff C., Jonathan A., and Jason. We were defeated.
10/30 @ CABS. Fought HARD to complete ch. 4.
11/27 @ CABS. Some lucky searches made ch. 5 easier than many of the previous.

One of my disappointments of last year's challenge was not getting this played more. I will be sure to play this more this year.

04/17 @ CABS. Matt and I played. I won by two points. Thanks for the game, Matt!

My favorite 4 player card game. This should also be relatively easy to play ten times over the course of the year. Many members of my gaming groups like this one.



01/16 @ CABS
01/24 @ CABS
02/20 @ CABS. Jeff, Ken, and I hope Anton was more intrigued than frustrated.
07/03 @ CABS. Jeff C., Tony, Alan M., and I played a game with lots of bombs. Jeff and I lost.
07/25 @ CABS. Uhg.
08/15 @ CABS. Tony and I could not get cards. When we did have a nice hand, THEY had better.
08/21 @ CABS. Jeff C. and I played well against Mike and Ken. We were leading when we called the game.
12/12 @ CABS. Teaching game with two new players. They picked it up quickly. Each experienced player partnered with a new player. My team won!
