So I'm not sure I've got the ability to do a 10x10 challenge (too many shiny new things etc...), but following on from an idea by one of my friends last year, here's a list of the games I'd like to try and get to the table this year (and some history / justification).

I'll track / update as the year progresses, and Comments / Feedback / Suggestions / Offers to play also welcomed

Having been introduced to the series last year, I instantly discovered one of the freshest and innovative approaches to creating a hybrid war/euro game.

They all seem to create a great narrative, with tension around the table and the time committed positively fly's by.

28/05/15 Cuba Libre
A Distant Plain
Fire In The Lake

I loved this game the first time I played it, and thought it really evolved the series, so keen to just get another play in really.

I've played the short scenario once already this year and found a game that continued the evolution of the series brought in by A Distant Plain.

I'd like to get at least 1 more play of this in during the year

As I've collected a few 18xx games over the years that remain unplayed, I'd liked to focus on getting those to the table this year:

1856 played 1/2 game 26/09/15
1856 played full game 04/10/15
18EU
1860 played 02/08/15
1862

Another great game that's received a lot of plays over the past few years. Having got the expansion recently, I'm keen to play and explore it in more detail

I'm also still targeting my first win at this one, so hopefully can clock that up this year

First Play of Expansion
First Win

Just received this game, which I was first drawn to by it's beautiful map, in the post. It's heavier than my normal wargame fare, but there seems to be clever game in the box and I look forward to getting it on the table this year.

I've not played the USSR side yet

19/07/15 USSR map played

Very different game to some of the other expansions, with the government market driving the game clock more aggressively. We seemed really evenly matched, until I stalled mid game and took a while to recover. Maybe a bad choice to be the coal / iron supplier. Final scores 29/36/37/38, so a close game in the end!

Definitely one to play again.

Being a fan of Vital Lacerda's games, I really want to explore this one more - I can see influences of this and Vinhos in Kanban, but this one fell slightly flat when we tried it.

I think it might have been due to 3 players trying it for the first time, so really want to try with both 4 & 5 player counts

An unsung gem of a game that mashes together card drafting with area control in a great package.

I've not managed to play the expansion, so really keen to get that into play a couple of times this year

First play with Experts expansion

I've not played a game with my copy of the expansion to this great game yet, so that's an aim for this year.

I played someone else's copy with some of the tiles shuffled in, but not the round goals, or other exciting things.

Having only played this once since I purchased it, I'm really keen to get a couple more plays in this year and see what it's all about.

The target is at least 2 plays of the base game:

18/03/15 5 player
09/05/15 4 player
