Goal of the Challenge:
As a counterpoint to the Cult of the New, this challenge encourages people to play each game several times to explore and experience them in depth. There is no rush to find the optimum strategy on your first play, or read all of the cards beforehand. Instead, each play reveals something more and something different, you get to try various strategies, and everyone's strategies evolve with their understanding and learning of the game. If you are tired of constantly learning new rules when running after the latest hotness, never really learning various strategies to any game, and needing to relearn the rules of old games because it's been too long since they were played, this is the challenge for you.

Previous Year's Challenges
2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each

The Challenge: Play 10 games 10 times each in 2016
-Anyone can join at any time in 2016.
-There are 2 versions of the Challenge, Normal & Hardcore, which will be explained below.

Note 1: All Normal and Hardcore lists are separate challenges, so a single play can appear in only one list. You can include a game on more than one list, and even have the exact same list for both Normal and Hardcore challenges, but you'd need to have 10 plays for each list the game appears in.
The key difference with the Hardcore challenge is that you are not allowed to change your mind on the 11 games once you have created the list. However, you can downgrade your Hardcore list to a Normal list and freely change listed games. You could even start a new Hardcore list, but you could only include plays done after creation of the new Hardcore list.

Note 2: If you want to do both a Normal and Hardcore challenge, you may put both lists into one entry. Just make sure to add a comment with your Hardcore list.

How to join the Normal Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Normal Challenge and then write down your ten games, if you've decided. You do not have to decide your 10 games ahead of time. You could even wait until you've finished playing 10 games 10 times each before posting to the challenge.
3. You may swap out games as you like. As long as you play 10 game 10 times by the end of 2016, you've succeeded at the challenge.
4. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
5. You may include any plays that happened in 2016, even if they were before you joined the challenge.
6. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, send the 10x10 BG Admin a GeekMail with a link to your item on this Geeklist. (Click on the number of your entry and it will give you a permanent hyperlink.) We must get a Geekmail by January 7th, 2017 for you to be eligible for prizes. Microbadges will still be awarded after that date, but not later than May 2017.
7. If you have any questions, please send the 10x10 BG Admin a GeekMail or post in the comment section at the very bottom of this Geeklist. We may not be able to keep up with all the comments on the individual entries.

How to join the Hardcore Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Hardcore Challenge and then write down your ten games including one alternate.
3. Comment on your item and copy the list of 11 games into it. Do not edit this comment. We will compare this unedited comment to your final list of games played to see if you changed anything or not.
4. To complete the challenge, you must play 10 of the 11 games you've specified at least 10 times. You may not swap in/out any other games.
5. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
6. You may not include any plays that happened before you joined the challenge.
7. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, send the 10x10 BG Admin a GeekMail with a link to your item on this Geeklist. (Click on the number of your entry and it will give you a permanent hyperlink.) We must get a Geekmail by January 7th, 2017 for you to be eligible for prizes. Microbadges will still be awarded after that date, but not later than May 2017.
8. If you have any questions, please send the 10x10 BG Admin a GeekMail or post in the comment section at the very bottom of this Geeklist. We may not be able to keep up with all the comments on the individual entries

Prizes:
At the end of 2016, anyone who has completed either the Normal or Hardcore challenge will get a prize. I’m going to start with Geek Gold. I’m putting in 20 GG to get started and will add to it any GG donated to this Geek List. The distribution of the GG will be dependent on how much is collected. If there is more than the number of finishers, then the GG will be distributed evenly to all the finishers. But if there is less GG than finishers, then it will be given away in equal chunks randomly among the finishers. This will be given out sometime in January.

While I will be tracking my progress here, I will not be eligible for the prizes. And depending upon how the year goes, I may include more prizes, but no promises right now. I am also open to anyone who would like to donate prizes. Just send me a Geekmail.

1. Matthew Moore has donated two copies of his game Bring Your Own Book. One will be given to a Normal completionist and one will be given to a Hardcore completionist. Thanks Matthew for donating prizes!

Microbadges
A big thanks goes out to a very talented Microbadge designer Jonna Hind (Kattvippa). She's designed all five of the Microbadges below.

Participant Microbadge: This one is purchasable and is not specific to the year. mb

Hardcore Participant Microbadge: This one is purchasable and is not specific to the year. mb

Completed Normal Award: This one will be awarded by the admins to all those who succeed at the Normal challenge. mb

Completed Hardcore Award: This one will be awarded by the admins to all those who succeed at the Hardcore challenge. mb

If you're a fan of the 10x10 Challenge, then you can buy this Microbadge: mb

Details of what does and does not count:
--If you play a game multiple times in a row, each completed game counts as a play. Partial games do not count, but can be added together to count as whole games.

--Feel free to include expansions in your games. It is suggested that when playing expansions that cannot be played on their own, list the entry under the main game. No need to specify the expansions used at any point. Unless your goal is to play an expansion 10 times then list the expansion as the entry.

--For expansions that can be played on their own as well as games in a series that can be mixed, you have two options:
1. List them as separate games, count their plays separately.
2. List them together as one game, count their plays together.

--Any games in a series that cannot be combined count as their own game. For example, the Tempest line of games are distinctly different, even though they are in a series.

--Feel free to play your games in any order that you like. You don't have to start with #1 and play all 10 games before going to #2. Unless that is how you want to do it.

--Role-playing games count. Each session counts as a play. So if you meet 10 times, that's 10 plays.

--For games that have scenarios, playing through a scenario counts as a play.

--Since a war game scenario can last hours, much longer than most board games, a play is counted for at least a two-hour block of time. It is up to each person to decide what a play means to them because this is a personal challenge, so you can make a play of a war game a longer period of time, up to a completed scenario.

--Online/digital games count regardless if you are playing against a person or the computer AI. The digital and physical games have to have the same rules (thus the same components) It also must have the same name as the original. It can't be a differently named game with similar game-play. "Normal" video games do not count for this challenge.

--Solo play counts.

--CCGs/LCGs count as they're tabletop games. Anything classified as a tabletop game counts for this challenge.

--If you participated in the challenge in the past, feel free to include any games you played then in this year's challenge. It's a new year, a new start.

New Update Regarding 2017 (posted 12/4/16)
I have decided, since I have been doing better this last month, that I will continue to run the challenge. But I will need a lot of help and I will eliminate the GG prize.

I'm sorry for yo-yoing everyone, but my health had been getting worse the last several months and I was struggling to keep up with life. But things have improved and so I am hopeful that I will be able to keep this up next year.

Here is how I see it will work.

What I do:
1. Create the GeekList using the admin account.
2. Contact Jonna to create the MB.
3. Process completions & get MB handed out. However, I will only do this about once a month, so people will need to be patient. And I won't send out response emails anymore (which I do enjoy, but takes up a lot of time). Everyone will get an email when the MB is awarded. So people should only follow up if it's been several months after sending in their email.

What I need helpers to do:
1. Welcome new additions to the Geeklist ALL YEAR - yes, people join all year long.
2. For those who do not do their hardcore comment correctly, helpers will post the list for them. This is a lot easier than getting the challenger to do a comment.
3. Respond to questions on the challenge GL, forum thread & FAQ GL. Anything that needs arbitration should then be sent to me.

There will not be any GG prize. This is a lot of work to do at the end of the year. This also means I will not maintain a list of who completes the challenges in the first entry of the GL.

I will use the admin account just in case my health does get worse next year and I need help processing emails.

So now I need people to respond in the comments at the bottom of this GL who want to be helpers and I will send you a link to the guild I created so we can talk shop there.

For my first year doing the challenge, might as well go big or go home. I will attempt both Normal and Hardcore challenges. The normal list will be completed mostly with my wife (who's my primary gaming partner) and her non-gaming family. The hardcore list is a majority of games that can be played online with my brother (who lives in a different country and introduced me to modern board games). We'll see how it goes!

Hardcore Challenge

Time to sum up this challenge for 2016: FAILURE!

1. Tunhell
2. Drakar & Demoner
3. RoboRally
4. 10' to kill
5. Café Melange
6. Deep Space D-6
7. Patchwork
8. Bring your own book
9. Forbidden Island
10. King of Tokyo
11. ...and then, we held hands

I will only log stars here so if you want to know more about my gaming-experience check out the geeklist for this challenge here: 2016 Busdjurs 10 Games 10 Times Each - Hardcore Challenge

It was interesting looking deeper into some of these games but I quickly realised I have to many new things around me that I want to play to be able to keep to playing the same ones so many times. And I still do so I will not give this a new chance during 2017 (maybe I´ll end up doing a non-hardcore challenge for solitaire games).

Looking on the list for games played this year there are only two games I´ve played a total of ten times or more and not only seven played more than five times...

Challenge: Failed!

Hi Sarah
Spontaneously I decided to do this challenge again this year

HARDCORE

1:Project Dreamscape


2: Shakespeare


3:Five Tribes


4:Brew Crafters


5:Lords of Vegas


6:Three Kingdoms Redux


7:Subdivision


8:Small City

9:Grand Austria Hotel

Progress: 100/100

Finished on October 8!

10x10admin, you can check when I played which game, I logged them all for this purpose.

I had a lot of fun with this last year - thanks SilvaShado - so I'm back for 2016, but this time it's Hardcore!
Here are my 10 games and recorded plays, OK - it's 11 games with the alternate.

Boss Monster
Picked this up at Essen 2014. Nice, simple, portable and quick to play.

Abyss
Picked this up at Essen 2014 too. Simple to play and a fun non-co-op game for the 'light gamers' crowd.

Ticket To Ride: 10th Anniversary
Even our friends that 'don't really play games' like this one, plus the 10th Anniversary trains with the giraffes are just too cute!

Lagoon: Land of Druids
Another pretty KS game. Nice small box, simple rule set but fun & very strategic. The game play mechanic has proven interesting the few times I've played it.

Pandemic
Always popular and a go to game for friends that play games but aren't hard core gamers. Co-op play makes it relatively easy to pick up as you go.

Relic Knights: Dark Space Calamity
I haven't played tabletop war games in a very long time. I'm looking forward to trying out this small force, fast paced table top skirmish game. Hopefully less setup than the old school tabletop games and more gameplay

Arkham Horror
A classic. This was the first co-op game I ever played. It took while to learn to play co-op rather than as a collection of individuals!

Cthulhu Wars
Big and beautiful. This game needs to be played as there simply isn't enough storage space for it and its expansions!

DeepWars
Have had this for a while but haven't really tried it yet. The minis look great so I need to give it a try.

Maharani
Bundled in with the Thebes Kickstarter, this pretty and deceptively simple game actually has a fair bit of strategy. Easy to learn & fun to play.

Alternate
