I am serious. Dead serious

Really.

I will not be cutting games in my collection, not down to 25, 560, 0, 666 or any number which seems to be the popular thing to do these days. Instead I intend do something even more shocking..I am actually gonna play my unplayed games!!

A few years ago I began tracking which games I own and was still unplayed by tagging them with Want to Play. It was quite depressing as the number almost made it to three digits before I stopped keeping track of games this way.

Fast forward to 2015 and I once again put the Want to Play tag on my owned, yet unplayed, games including expansions.

And I thought 100 was bad…

It wasn't..

Poor games, instead of being stuck on a shelf in shop they just ended up being...stuck on another shelf…

The bet/promise:
I will not buy a new game until my Want to Play list is down to “only” double digits. This includes wishing for games at Christmas and birthdays. Including me buying games I want for my kids.

This geeklist will be used to keep track of played games and will need to hit the fifth page...I will be shocked if I manage to complete this..

PS: No rules without an exception of course..

PSS: Rules regarding some expansions:
Exp. like maps for Power Grid, Age of Steam etc: Played 1 side = played
LotR: LCG: Played = having played the adventure (Not using cards in my deck).


Edit 1: Locking in games total: 582.

With the delays regarding last year's subscription I'm still waiting for Ships but as it was technically paid for last year it will count as a newly bought game when it arrives.

As far as I know I have nothing unaccounted for on KS as well so there should not be any surprises out of the blue there either.

I would very much like my own Crokinole board but shipping and VAT/taxes is a true killer in Norway, but this will be the only game I allow myself to buy in the upcomming (I-have-no-idea-how-long-this-will-take) times.

I already know I'll regret it, probably as soon as I hit submit.

There will be no more LotR expansions, no SW:IA expansions.

Nothing.

Just to get a head start I'll add three games that was unplayed when I decided this was the way to go.

DoW I had already played three time before getting my own copy just ahead of a local con called Midwinter arrangeed each February/March in Haugesund, Norway.

I brought with great hopes of getting a game in. It was a 4 player game where I turned out to be the betrayer but really very few opportunities to sabotage as there was most times only 2 or 3 players helping with crisis and as I had 2 card drawers I couldn't stock up on cards either as that would be suspicious.

I planned for three rounds for a round I would be last in and with the help of 2 drop morale and food running out at the colony I managed to pull out a win.

I brought this to the same convention and played it a massive 6 times, and one more time since.

So far I've only played Alien (1-2) and Aliens (2-2).

This is one of the better deckbuilders out there with doom lurking around every corner. There are so many ways to get screwed. In one game we managed to pick up two facehuggers on the same turn and unable to dispatch neither..

As I'm also participating in the 10*10 challenge I thankfully have this on my list and there should be no chance this will not make 10 plays in 2015.

Great game.

Around X-mas I found out that there was a BGG regular who lived in the same place as I and contacted himto see where excactly at Kvernaland he lived. Turned out we live no more than a golf swing away from each other and have met on a fairly regular bases since.

CC:E has been on my shelf for a few years but as he knew it I finally got a war game off my unplayed list. I can see why it gets the high praise and I'm very much looking forward to explore more of the CC universe.


So, that would be three games off.

Jupp, gonna regret this...

Going straight to work on getting my list down.

March 20th:

A friend came over and due to tiredness we went for some lighter games. After defeating Aliens he wanted to try this. I had played it before so had good control of the rules. 8 minute empire lives up to the name and there are a surprising amount of game in this little package.

I won this game simply due to previous experience with the game.

Played on intro level. We started of by clearing pretty much everything including finding a couple of cures before realizing something had to be wrong. This wasn't much of a challenge.

Then it struck us.

We had forgotten to infect every round.

Starting over we still pulled out the win with the outbreaks two spaces away.

I hadn't played this in a long time and with rules in German I'm not sure we played it a 100% correct but it didn't feel all that wrong.

I got some good rolls that allowed me several times to strike two consecetive numbers while my opponent must have rolled more doubles on the white dice then I have ever seen.


At this rate I will be able to pick up games after Essen again devil

Another game crossed of the list.

This is a game I enjoy more and more, and the two player variant is very good. Removing one die after picking one for yourself makes it a lot more important to pay attention what your opponent has choosen. Which of course is easier as there is only one to keep track of...

This looks like it will ake a while..

April 8th:

2 player game. Me having played once before, Stig Morten trying for the first time. I think we both expected that I would win due to my previous play, and when I got a great combination of bonus cards as well and scoring 18-6 for depleted stacks it showed.

While two player was ok, this game is far better with 3. Haven't tried it with 4 yet but I would expect it to be at least as good as with 3.

MarchApril 11th:

3 players, 2 new to the game. Neither of us are of the AP prone players and therefore the game flowed quite well. There weren't many obvious too good moves. I had a couple, but at least one of them led to a similar good result for the player behind me.

In the end it still was a close game with 21 points separating all three players.

All expansions related to LotR:LCG

April 14th: The Dead Marshes
Worst part of this was that I found out I had forgotten to tag two expansions with Want to Play...

May 16th-17th: Return to Mirkwood and Khazad-dûm
6 tries of RtM going 3-3. Great adventure but Dwarves manage to go 3-3 albeit 4 games (2-2) were on Semi easy.

May 24th: The Redhorn Gate:
Challenging quest, but with so few victory locations this has potential to drag. Thanks to Dain my dwarves didn't have to much trouble over the mountains and bring Arwen back...

May 26th: Road to Rivendell:
Sleeping Sentry kind of caught me off guard as I don't read the encounter cards beforee playing first time...
Played around it the second time. I've thought about adding cards to cancel shadow effects since Return to Mirkwood. I guess I should do that now...

June 1st: Watcher in the water:
2 comfortable wins with dwarves, one by defeating the watcher and once by opening the door. I need to start playing some other deck soon as I'm getting to spoiled by Dain and his ability.

June 5th: The Long Dark:
Expected a harder quest than this for a DL 7 and it might be with more players. Solo, this was quick and easy.

June 6th: Foundations of Stone:
This would be fun trying with 3 or 4 players :-)
Seemed much harder then the previous adventure but we'll see witha couple of more plays now that I know how it works.

June 10th: Shadow and Flame:
Dwarves retake Moria!
A briliant beast of a quest this one and for a change Dain has to share MVP status with Nori whose threat reduction ability allowed me to build up my forces to take down the Balrog.
1 win on semi easy and 1 win on normal mode.

Thus the Dwarrowdelf cycle is complete.

Finally CoH made it to the table. I've had it for about 4 years without hitting the table. I've only tried the first firefight which is very simple and straightforward. Really like how they introduce a few rules at a time here. Looking forward to play this again, hopefully without getting decimated as I was first time.

April 22nd

Slowly nibbling away on the list with another game I had previous experience with. Deus was the first game I tried at a local con back in November and was slightly overwhelmed by due to all the possibilities you have. In some aspects it reminds me a lot about Imperial Settlers.

I managed to pull out the win mainly because I had played before and that it has been a few weeks since I read the rules.

Time to get moving again with some new games.

Two 3 player games with Stig Morten and Geir Erik. Should have left it at one game as the second game was my first loss in any of the three similar Bezier games.

As expected I one the first game as neither of them had played it before, and although it has similarities to Mad King Ludwig it is still a new game that needs planning.

Full credit to Geir Erik in the second game which probably is the best game I've seen played of this even picking up 3 of the goals and scoring about 50 points ahead of second place.

After a game of Splendor we finished the evening with a round of this. Both Stig Morten and myself had played the regular version before so we should have some advantage on Geir Erik.

It didn't help me....

Stig Morten took home the win quite convincing and I took last in similar convincing fashion.. I do like the changes they've made in this version which for sure makes it more tactical and likely to pick up the more expensive cards to get point scoring matches.

May 31st:

3 player game with 2 friends as part of a gaming evening which also contained Deus and Flash Point. All 3 done in about 2,5 hours.

Subdivision is lighter then both Suburbia and Castles and easier to understand the rules and scoring. In those a first time player is likely gonna end up quite a far way back of players with experience. That is not the case in Subdivision as both Stig and Erik building their neighborhood and final scoring revealing Stig as the winner with everyone within 7 points.

Nice to something other then LotR:LCG crossed of my list. Tried Alchemists last Tuesday and played my own copy Saturday while the rules was pretty fresh.

A beautiful and amazing (or rather annoying...(in a good way)) game where I at least 3 times in both games have thought: "What the h*** am I doing". I assume it will need a few plays to truly see how to combine all gathered information into theories.

This one is bound to see more plays.

Saga Expansions:

June 12th:

After finishing up Dwarrowdelf I've decided to take on the Hobbit and a couple of Saga expansions. I thought I had a decent deck after going 3-0 against shadow and flame but didn't stand a chance against 3 trolls i an adventure very reminiscent of Conflict at the carrock. I did exchange Dain for Thorin though to keep it close to the books so I might go back.

Worked better on second try but forgot that you can't damage trolls in the staging area so a bit of a sour win as Gandalf twice put 4 damage on trolls.

It's cold outside. There's no kind of atmosphere. I'm all alone. More or less. Let me fly. Far away from here. Fun fun fun. In the sun sun sun...

Expansions:

June 13th: Age of Steam Expansion: Mexico & China:
Age of Steam is a game I would like to play more than I do. It's a great design and so brutal..

Tried the Mexico map this time with 3 players and I was pretty much screwed after the first round as I was built in and had no goods to move which turned into a snowball of running up shares and finished the game having issued all 15...

Still, the harsh nature of AoS is one of the details that I really like about this game.

Wow, what a great game!

It was great to find a boardgamer only a minute walk away early this year, and one who enjoys heavy and wargames as well, giving me great hopes for some of my heavier games.

Sekigahara isn't really a very heavy game but darn, it is good. Brilliant and engaging design. While I'm not very familiar with the Japanese history the best part of a well written rulebook may just be the history and designer notes at the end.

The game itself is incredible tense, filled with tide turning decisions. When to fight, when to run, when to challenge loyalty, when to quit and take your losses...all the while keeping it quite simple.

All around just a great game!

Another heavy game crossed of the list. 4 player game with only myself having played it before. Took about 3 hours including rules explanation.

With my previous experience I managed to get a good engine early and some helping wonders. We saw very few military cards in the first 6 rounds (may have been as few as 7). Game was quite different from my previous play.

Another game I can cross of my list, but not from playing it. I auctioned both this and ONUW of in the G4GG lottery in June. Not because I don't like the game anymore but rather because I have several friends who also backed it and whenever I'll play ONUW one or more of them is pretty much guaranteed to also be there.

Was planning on an evening of an unplayed 18xx title, but one by one people had to call off. One guy's wife had her birthday, one was ill, one on vacation and one had been to the dentist, operated and the painkillers said no driving.

All acceptable excuses I have to agree.

Left with Terje and myself. He wanted to try Fields of Arle but since neither of us had read the rules we decided to hold and instead pulled out Aquasphere as he had yet to play it but picked it up as first pick after winning the big tournament at a local con earlier this year.

As with most of Feld's design it's hard to see how to optimize your plays on first go.

August 17th:

Keeping all LotR expansions to one entry got a little bit messy (and I really woul like to close page one of this).

I've been playing a lot of LotR:LCG lately but as I grew a little tired of playing dwarves I've built 4 other decks which have been playtested against the Mirkwood cycle a lot and finally they seem to come together nicely. It's not a good sign for a new built deck to lose to Passage through Mirkwood...

As my Dwarves are currently trying to get out (together with Bilbo) from the Misty Mountains someone else had to stand up to the challenge in Pelargir. My secrecy deck has really been working great and so to on the first adventure. I play on semi easy first go (2 resources) but after my first planning phase I had 2 northern trackers, 1 rivendell scout and a resourceful in play. The Battle ability even made my questing easier.


First turn
