I'm not entirely sure what has led me to this wonderful concept. Given I typically play anywhere from 2 to 10 games a week, getting up to the 100 mark shouldn't pose any significant challenge.

I'll be starting on Hardcore, and no doubt abandoning it part way through, but why not?

So, My 11 games for hardcore will be:

1. Alien Frontiers
2. Chrononauts
3. Dixit
4. Galaxy Trucker: Anniversary Edition
5. Love Letter
6. Niagara
7. Race for the Galaxy
8. Railroad Tycoon
9. Wealth of Nations
10. Firefly: The Game
11. Roll for the Galaxy

Played 21.1. Lost by a narrow margin due to not paying attention. Scores: 11-10-7-4 iirc

Two games on 28.1, both two player. A very different game with two players. Won the first with 14 points and the second with 15.

Another game on 1.2. Two player, teaching a new player to play. Came down to the final dice roll. I won 13 to 10.

My first three player fame on 11.2. Won by 2 points, simply by being able to place all 7 colonies.

Two more games on 12.4, lost both by a considerable margin.

A five player game on 15.4 was drawn somewhat short by lack if time after 2 hours. Joint win between myself and another.

Two player only on 22.4. And I lost horribly...

Two games with three players on 4.3, while we were killing time between other things. Lost the first by bad planning, and won the second with a bit of luck.

Played two games on 21.1. Neither went very well for me, but that has never stopped me enjoying race anyway. Both with Alien Artifacts expansion.

Lost three two player games on 4.3, all from lack of practice I felt. I must play race more...

Two more games on 29.3, both went somewhat better than the last few, and I one the first with 46 points and the second with 49.

Two games of Alien Artefacts on 12.4, I wish I could remember the scores!

Played the original Eastern US map on 19.4 with six players, and have been reminded why I try and avoid that one. The north east corner is just far too easy to run away with.

The first game of Wealth where I have come a firm last. Mistake after mistake made for a really badly played game, I should never have passed on building on turn two. Lost by the value of the two tiles I should have played then.

Played this while tired and not paying attention on 15.3. Lost again. Had great fun none the less

A very nice friend bought me a copy of this as a belated birthday present, so I got my first play thus year on 4.2. Took longer than expected, and I lost by quite a distance.

Another game on 8.2. No better than the last. I appear to have not mastered the basics on how to get off to a strong start. I'll work on this.

In the game on 8.4. I'm starting to get an idea of how to start this game for my play style, which is to be a lot more aggressive, and less caring about the universe. I won too.

My preordered copy finally turned up on 22.1 and we played 7 two player games. Getting to ten is really not going to be hard.

Another game on 28.1, this time 5 player. No where near as quick, but interesting.

Two more games on 1.2. 3 then 2 plater. Lost the first by 1 point, won the second by a few.

That's 10 plays!
