Here is the 2018 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each GeekList!

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
2016 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each

The Challenge: Play 10 games 10 times each in 2017
-Anyone can join at any time in 2017.
-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 2017, 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 2017, 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 February 1, 2018 for you to be eligible for Microbadges.
GeekMails will be processed once a month. You will only get a GeekMail informing you of the Microbadge award. Do not send follow-up messages unless more than 2 months have passed.
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 February 1, 2018 for you to be eligible for Microbadges.
GeekMails will be processed once a month. You will only get a GeekMail informing you of the Microbadge award. Do not send follow-up messages unless more than 2 months have passed.
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

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.

Normal Challange

Tried to go for playing all of our games at least once instead of focusing on this challenge so I didn't get to do as many games with depth for this year, but I have a plan for 2018.

Here are my 11 games played at least 10 times from 2017:

- Pentaquark - 43 plays
- 30 Rails - 25 plays
- Herbaceous - 20 plays
- Circle the Wagons - 19 plays
- Codenames: Duet - 18 plays
- Hanabi - 16 plays
- Friday - 16 plays
- Card City - 13 plays
- Songbirds - 12 plays
- Codenames - 12 plays
- Sylvion - 11 plays

Normal Challenge

Listing my predicted games and the odds I give myself of logging 10 plays for that game.

1) The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game (100%) - My most played game ever
(1/19)(1/21)(1/21)(1/21)(1/21)
(2/18)(2/18)(2/18)(2/18)(3/4)

2) Arkham Horror: The Card Game (99%) - New LCG hotness
(1/2) (1/2) (1/10)(1/15)(1/15)
(1/27)(1/27)(1/28)(1/29)(2/2)

3) War of the Ring: Second Edition (95%) - My favorite game ever. Now that I have a kid, it's harder to find time to play.
(1/6) (2/7) (2/11)(2/23)(3/20)
(3/21)(3/22)

4) A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition) (90%) - Last year's LCG hotness. Between the kid and my investment in the Arkham Horror LCG, I'm not sure how long this will survive.
(1/22)(1/22)(1/22)(1/22)(1/22)
(3/7) (3/7) (3/7) (3/11)(3/11)

5) Gloomhaven (85%) - I'm super excited about this and it is a legacy game, so repeat plays are likely.
(2/3) (2/3) (2/4) (2/10)(2/10)
(2/12)(2/17)(2/17)(2/17)(3/10)

6) Deception: Murder in Hong Kong (75%) - This has been a staple at my weekly game night.



7) Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle (60%) - Haven't played this yet, but I think the wife will like it. Fills a similar role as Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game, which we have played a ton.
(1/1)(1/5)(1/8)


8) One Night Ultimate Werewolf (50%) - Another staple at the weekly game night. Only 7 logged plays for 2016 though.
(1/30)(1/30)(1/30)(4/17)(4/17)


9) Mechs vs. Minions (40%) - I would love to play this 10 times, but not sure I will find other people to play it with me enough times.
(1/10)


10) Mythos Tales (30%) - Just picked this up and played the first scenario. The wife liked it, so 10 plays is possible.
(1/14)


11) Birds of a Feather (25%) - A great filler/gateway game.
(2/26)(2/26)(4/6)(4/6)

Have enjoyed this challenge for the past couple of years, it has really helped me to determine whether I like games long-term or not.
I am going to try and make the list half 'new to me' and half old favourites that I know will be easy to complete.
I will be attempting the NORMAL CHALLENGE

Legendary Marvel

Comment: I subbed this game in at the last minute as it came to consume my gaming life for a couple of weeks. Being able to play solo certainly helped, the campaign rules available on BGG have given me an excellent experience of creating a story arc through the various schemes.

Splendor

Comment: This game slowly got its hooks in me, and I found it becomes so tense towards the end as many players can be close to the 15 point goal. I feel my successes at this game, limited to two wins so far, are still too luck-based for my liking, but I cant seem to work out how to plan my moves sufficiently to achieve any kind of mastery.

Ingenious

Comment: Such an interesting little game. It really highlighted my struggle with spatial abstract games that require a number of planning factors. For example, I am pretty successful with Blokus in terms of visually assessing available spaces, but matching colours to generate points suddenly makes my brain cramp.

Hive

Comment: What a great tactical abstract, it is endlessly enjoyable and i really love exploring the different tile powers.

Pathfinder: Rise of the Runelords

Comment: I get really caught up in this game and enjoy the journey, but let's be honest it is ridiculously luck-based and unless the decks are arranged just so, you will have very little chance of winning - or am I just bitter at my ridiculously long losing streak?

Pickomino

Comment: a fast push-your-luck game that continuously frustrates me by ensuring there are no certainties right up to the end of the game, yet I still love it.

Suburbia

Comment: Another game I thought I had a pretty good handle on until I tried some of the solo challenges. I feel I developed a greater appreciation (and unfortunately only a little understanding) of how income, reputation and population relate and influence each other using the different tiles, and the kinds of suburbs you produce when chasing a particular goal. Excellent game, my interest and admiration has only grown as a result of 10 plays.

Codenames

Comment: A family gathering quickly ticked off these ten plays, the extended family quite like the simplicity of this game as well as the team-based play. I found my enthusiasm waned a little for this game this year.

Lost Cities

Comment: Another Knizia that I thought 'nice game', but throw in some solo challenges and suddenly the difficulty and enjoyment ramps up. Of course there is more luck in this game, but that simply ensures you don't have perfect information and that the game doesn't grow stale. Another game I appreciate more as a result of this challenge.

Coloretto

Comment: This is an impressive little game, so easy to teach and players grok very quickly to the meta game of playing the players. Excellent filler, it always begs to be played more than once.

I completed this for 2015, and failed miserably in 2016 after a great start. Here's hoping for 2017! I am going to do the hardcore challenge again, because what's life without a little challenge:

1) Star Wars: Destiny

2) 13 Days

3) Mechs vs Minions

4) Mombasa

5) Gloomhaven

6) Inis

7) Glory to Rome

8) Troyes

9) Ponzi Scheme

10) Maria

11) Kingdom Death: Monster

Current Status: 60/110

HARDCORE CHALLENGE



Well, I tried a Hardcore challenge for the first time in 2016. Unfortunately, I picked too many "New to me" games on the list. Towards the end, it felt like a chore, as I didn't care for some of them. This year, I am aiming for more games that I know I enjoy and want to get to the table with only a touch of the Cult of the New.

1). Magic Realm

2). Arkham Horror: The Card Game

3). Nations: The Dice Game

4). Machi Koro

5). Nuklear Winter '68

6). FUSE

7). Airborne Commander

8). Deep Space D-6

9). Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game

10). Star Wars: Destiny

(alt)

11). Conflict of Heroes: Eastern Front – Solo Expansion
