meepleWill you take up the D12 Challenge?meeple

During a recent #BoardGameHour we talked about making gaming resolutions. Inspired by the awesome 10x10 challenge, the idea of the #D12Challenge was born.

Your challenge is to help 12 new people DISCOVER the modern tabletop gaming hobby in 12 months.

Together we will wipe out the question "what like monopoly?"
Together we will help publishers create more games
Together we will play more games
Together we will take over the world!

Please use this list to sign up to the challenge & keep a record of how you are getting on. If you like the idea feel free to spread the word, use the hashtag #D12challenge and most of all enjoy introducing more people to our wonderful hobby!

It will be great to read about your progress and see how you are getting on. Here is a suggestion for a record keeping system:

(Don't know) = Need to find someone who might be interested
(Definite possibility) = I have someone in mind and am working on it
(Disciple) = I have helped someone Discover a love of board games. They request to play my games and may well buy their own!

With 15 people signed up, if we all succeed, the #D12Challenge will introduce 180 people into our wonderful hobby! That's quite a lot..

please feel free to use any logo etc that I have made :0)

Hosted a Pandemic Party (www.pandemicparties.com) at the Peoria Brewing Company on January 11th. The weather didn't agree with us that day, so we only had a handful of people joining us. Two were new, having only played mass market games and Cards Against Humanity.

It took one of them a little while to wrap her head around how the game played, while the other got it almost immediately. Both enjoyed it and are planning on coming back during our regular Sunday gaming events at the brewery.

Update 2/10: Introduced a couple to Diamonds over the weekend. When I was in at the game store yesterday, they were there looking at some of the games trying to figure out what they wanted to buy!

Update 3/31: During our meetup group, one of our regulars broughther boyfriend who is an avid videogamer. We introduced him to Machi Koro and he fell in love with it. He went on to play Takenoko also. Found out he went to the FLGS and bought Machi Koro after the meetup.

My totals to date:

Sounds like a good time. The Resistance is both a great game that I plan to use to introduce the hobby and what I expect to encounter through most of this list.



1. SK - My buddy from grade school. We played Pandemic once. Not sure I've quite piqued his interest, but he was surprised at how uncomplicated modern board games can be.

I'm going to go easy, and start with Coup. Got quite a few people last year with this gem, but now I mean business!

Although honestly, I'm in the middle of the Kickstarter for my game, The Kingswood, so I may also go with that.

The Future is a Game

Let's do this

1: "T" Introduced Splendor to my sister and her boyfriend right around New Years Day. She took to it instantly and we played, at her request, 3 times in a row. She won the first two games (3-player) and was feeling good - then lost the next game to me (4-player, our bro-in-law joined us). She began to puzzle the how and the why. At that moment I knew she was hooked, at least to Splendor anyway. When I found out she went and bought the game I had to smile - then she texted me a picture of her and her boyfriend playing (she won again). This is how this hobby begins - you have that one game that sticks in your craw and you just always want to play it, then over time you start to want more.

2: "D" A friend of mine from highschool saw a picture I posted of a gameboard on FB (I believe it was Concordia). He thought it was cool and asked about it - fast forward to today and he asks if I want to join him at our FLGS (that he independently found on his own) for Wednesday game night. Heck yes! We'll see how that goes but for now this is a tentative "hobby acquired." - Update - So we ended up playing Lost Cities, Morels, and a 2 player game of Pandemic. We played on easy (4 epidemics) but it was a very interesting game with lots of twists and drama - he totally loved it and ended up buying a copy.

3: "J" - a friend of mine from way back came by my house a few weekends ago to play some games - we played Ticket to Ride and she loved it. She has almost no gaming experience at all so it was "just" on the edge of too complex for her. But over the course of the game, she became more and more comfortable with it and by the end, she was blocking my routes! Grrr!!! We had a total blast and she wants to play again - I think I'll try a larger group next time and play Ca$h 'n Guns (Second Edition)!

4: "M" - friend from college direct messaged me on FB asking about all the games I was posting pictures of. (By the way, can I just say it's amazing how many people surreptitiously message me on the side about games, as if they don't want people to know they are interested) Anyway, I wrote her a long email about all the games that were out there and game stores she should visit. I'll let you know if any gaming comes from that! Update - she ended up buying The Magic Labyrinth, My First Carcassonne, and Love Letter in a spree of buying afterwards! Looks like her whole family might end up gamers after all!

5: "D" - next project involves bringing over a non-gamer and his oldest son and running a session of Star Wars: Imperial Assault. Huge Star Wars fan and also plays "Clash of Clans" so I think this is fertile ground. Scheduled for this Saturday so we will see how things go.

I am committed to the D12 challenge. I will keep track of the folks I introduce to the hobby, the games we played, and a short story about our gaming sessions.



mbmb

I recently moved to Massachusetts and met a couple around my age, C and E, through a church. They invited me and my girlfriend over for dinner with some other friends and said they were going to play some games - quelf, space team, catch phrase, other 'party games.' I decided to bring over The Resistance and was pretty sure I could get the group to play the game - simple rules, lots of social interactions. C and E absolutely loved it and went to purchase a copy the next week AND bought a copy for C's parents.

A week ago, we had a game night and they both were really into Ticket to Ride and very interested in playing Forbidden Island, Hanabi, Settlers of Catan, and Smash Up. I think their love for board games has begun to snowball as they have talked about getting more games. C even made a visit to a FLGS I recommended.



My Mother. I introduced designer games to her this year and taught her Ticket to Ride, Forbidden Island, and yes... Dice Masters. She picked it all up fast and said she always loved games but didn't know about modern board gaming. Months later, she started playing some games with her friends (Dixit) and acquired Pandemic!



My sister and her boyfriend. I got them Red7 and Coup for a birthday. They were not too into the bluffing of Coup but they absolutely loved Red7. They are always up for casual games now!



S and D are a part of the local Whist Club. They came to our game night once when Whist was cancelled. We taught them Ticket to Ride and Bang! The Dice Game. They have been coming back ever since...



T & T cousins at our local church. We invited them to join our weekly game nights as they were getting older (17 and 18). They instantly were taken by designer games and have a few favorites: Smash Up, Small World, Fairy Tale, King of Tokyo, and Tokaido.









More updates to come...

At my final architecture association board meeting, as outgoing president I was able to choose the location. I selected the private room at my FLGS and had food catered in. We had our formal meeting and there were plenty of jokes about feeling like they were in the comic store on the big bang theory. At the end of the meeting I gave out my thank you gifts, which were all games that I felt they might enjoy on their own. They in return had some gifts for me off my wish list with the help of my wife including Red7. We borrowed the store's Telestration party pack and played that and my Red7. After the new year "Ja" told me how much she enjoyed Quirkle with her daughter, "V" picked up Red7 and Forbidden Island based on seeing me giving them out, and "Ju" picked up Telestations to play with his family.

1. Ju
2. V
3. Ja
4. Co-worker "T" - chess player - picked up Catan to play with his kids after we discussed games several times at lunch.
5. W is a war gamer - I've been feeding him games to play with his daughter. He's picked up Forbidden Island and Coconuts after I loaned him a copy to try.

Ohhhh, this sounds very hard & fun! Have introduced a couple couples we have gamed with to another game group we play with regularly at our FLGS, and they keep coming back so now I'll try from the ground up.

one of my colleagues, she came to our last game night at the house, there might be hope
one of my former colleagues, she and her husband play a tile game I can't recall, let's see if I can get them hooked on other games
at least one of my cousins - got them playing loads of dice games like chupacabra & dino hunt dice last time they were at the house
after playing Quiddler with my sister-in-law, Paperback is going to be her segway into more complex games. Just have to get a copy to her now.









Twelve is going to be a lot - too bad it wasn't the D6 challenge.

I'll move to another country next month. New country, new culture, new people. I don't know anyone there. Introducing board games to new people should be a great way to get to know new friends, too.

- My fiancée. We are starting our new life together and she is not into the hobby at all, but it would be great if playing together would be part of this new life. She liked Hanabi and digs her piggies in 2-player Agricola, so the signs are good...

So Dixit is my new best friend for introducing gamers to new games. It is easy to teach. It is disarming because the visual aspects use a novel (to many people) approach to gaming. It is social and gets people to know each other. I also like the scoring system because it is not winner take all approach.

After a nice round of Dixit people are much less intimidated to participate in the next game I plop on the table, Terra Mystica (JK baby JK)!

I sponser an open boardgame night every month at a local totally cool community center so I should have no problem with this. In addition when I ran our Tabletop Day at the same location last year over 200 people showed up and many were newbies. (this is amazing when you live in a rural town of 3000 actually most of us live in the countryside)

D12 Challenge is a great thing to emphasize the new gamers. Too often we gamers get insular and want to game with our friends and not have to teach etc. By running an open advertised game night it gives me one night a month I dedicate to teaching others.
So starting with last nights gaming event:


Off to a great start thanks to 3 newbies that wandered into our inviting lair last night MuawHaHaHa ;-)

So starting Jan 9th I started hosting a weekly game night at my house!

I wanted a way to get more games played and a place to see my gaming friends more often!! This will also be a great way to introduce people to the hobby! Seeing I will now have a time I can invite people to come and learn new games!

Most of my board gaming friends are in to it dew to me having random game days and inviting them over! Many are from magic, D&D or Video Game backgrounds and had never been exposed to Hobby board games!

So I have a few more peeps I'm working on getting to the table and I need to find a few more!

H - is a x coworker who is interested in table top games but hasent really had any or anyone to play with I invited him and his room mate to come to my weekly game night and they had a blast and plan on coming back today!

D - H's roommate taged along with H and they both had a lot of fun even though I was sure he was the trader in shadows over Camelot.... It's always awesome to play games with new players because you don't know what to expect and can often lead to epic stories!! D wants to come back to game night tonight also!

M - is a co worker who has a crazy huge steam video game collection! He has more games than he could ever play! IV talked to him about board games here and there but he's never really played tabletop boardgames! I invited him to come to my weekly game night yesterday and he seemed really excited! He said he has been watching a lot of tabletop on YouTube and wants to give it a go! He's really excited to try betrayal at house on the hill! I said I have it lets make it happen!

A - is another co worker who is really in to Ccgs and D&D a long with RPG videogames! IV talked with him several times about coming over to play games but my game days had been to random and our schedules just didn't line up! Now that I'm doing a weekly game night he is going to try and make it! His vehicle situation is rough so he has to get rides places but I said just bring a friend and they can play too! "M" also offered to give A a ride if he starts to come witch is awesome!!

J - is my wife's coworker and I met him at her Company party! He is really in to hearthstone and LoTR and my wife told him we are having a weekly game night he wanted to come try it out! IV talked to him about games several times wile visiting her at work! But he has no real knowledge of hobby boardgames... He said he loves Monopoly so there's some work to do!

JB - coworker who IV talked about board games a lot with is really in to Fantasy books LOTR and skyrim said he wishes there was a board game like skyrim and I told him the closest thing I can think of is Mage knight! But it's not a simple game! After going home and watching videos he decides to buy it and I'm thinking he may have started out to complex! Lol he wants to try it solo and get the rules down so we can play and I keep telling him just to come over cuz I own the game also! So we are planing to play mage knight at some point! And he wants to try and make it to a game night some time also!


still looking
still looking

I'm excited to see what all my new game night and new gaming friends bring to the table!!
