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.

I'm going for the hardcore challenge this year. I plan to add quite a few more games as "extra credit" since most of my games are fairly quick.

On a personal note, I'm a casual gamer. I love heavier games, but I don't often get the opportunity to play them due to my hectic schedule as a teacher, graduate student, coach, husband, and father. The following list represents a mixture of games I can realistically play ten times within my usual gaming settings.

Good luck to all participants!

1. Potion Explosion -

2. Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game -

3. Biblios -

4. Codenames: Pictures -

5. Deception: Murder in Hong Kong -

6. Dixit - (Not sure this will happen. My wife has fallen out of love with Dixit.)

7. The Game -

8. Hostage Negotiator -

9. Karuba -

10. Splendor -

11. Two Rooms and a Boom -


Extra Credit!

1. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle -

2. 7 Wonders Duel -

3. Codenames -

4. Herbaceous -

5. Hanamikoji -

6. One Deck Dungeon -

7. FUSE -

8. Wits & Wagers -

9. Tides of Madness -

10. ICECOOL -

Though I am still 3 plays short of finishing my 2016 challenge (my first one), I figured I will go ahead and post my 2017 challenge. We are doing something a little different this year. Since our normal gaming group consists of four players, and most all of our plays are done together, we are building a "group" challenge this year. Each person in the group is putting two games into the challenge (and the group is not allowed to play that specific game unless the nominating player is also playing that game). And then each person is nominating two other games... with all eight of those going into a hat... and two of them will be drawn for the final two spots. We have "locked in" our first eight... and will be drawing for the final two in about a week. Here is our NORMAL challenge for 2017:

100% COMPLETE

1) Power Grid [COMPLETE] (my selection)
Board Game: Power Grid


2) Samurai [COMPLETE] (my selection)
Board Game: Samurai


3) Stone Age [COMPLETE] (Kat's selection)
Board Game: Stone Age


4) Small World (Kat's selection)
Board Game: Small World


5) Elysium [COMPLETE] (Q's selection)
Board Game: Elysium


6) Patherfinder ACG: Rise of the Runelords
[COMPLETE] (Q's selection)
Board Game: Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set


7) Red Dragon Inn (Janie's selection)
Board Game: The Red Dragon Inn


8) Greed [COMPLETE] (Janie's selection)
Board Game: Greed


9) Viceroy [COMPLETE] (my selection)
Board Game: Viceroy



10) Kingsburg [COMPLETE] (Janie's selection)
Board Game: Kingsburg


The games that were nominated for the last two slots are: Rattlebones, Viceroy, Doom that Came to Atlantic City, Smash Up, Illuminati, Witcher Adventure Game, Kingsburg, and Mysterium.
