Hardcore 2017 10x10, because I like to make myself stress out at the last possible minute.

I'm mostly posting this to bgg as "proof" of the list. A full write-up (maybe even with session reports??? No, probably not) will eventually make its way to my website and podcast, but for now, I need something to timestamp it so it counts. After all, for the hardcore 10x10 that's the entire point.

I'll be tracking the progress of the 10x10 on my website. Mostly because I don't really know how to geeklist.

I'll be doing 2 other 10x10s, but those will likely come later in the year as they start to form themselves (even though I've already sorta picked the games I want to use).

1. Board Game: Pandemic [Average Rating:7.66 Overall Rank:67]

I've gone on record as saying that Pandemic is my favorite game. I've actually played this so much that when the new edition was released, I immediately bought it to replace my falling apart first edition. The cards in my first edition copy are so bad that some of them are peeling from the backing. The cards are literally falling apart from so much play! So when the new version came out, I sleeved it immediately. Playing Pandemic (with a new expansion) shouldn't be a problem. I've had play sessions where we've played multiple times, losing at first, but playing until we win.

Scoville and I have an interesting history. I initially discovered the game's print and play files on BGG at about 2am one day when I was getting ready for bed. The next morning I decided to do it. I went to a few craft stores looking for something to work as the peppers and found some puffballs. The money was easy, I'd just use poker chips. The board I would have to print, and here's where the history begins. See, it had been snowing, and maybe a tad bit icy. I also do not own a color printer. Ah, but my parents do, so off to their house I would go! It should be mentioned that they live in a valley area, shaded from the sun by trees. So this is the only board game I have ever wrecked my car to do the print and play. I actually tweeted to Ed Marriott about it when it happened. #worthit

Alien Frontiers is one of those strange games that I seem to be able to get anyone to play. Maybe it's because I describe it as Yahtzee in space. Maybe it's the fantastic art and the mechanics that seem to just make sense. I backed the kickstarter for the Rocket Dice to further enhance this already amazing game. With a bunch of new expansions, the game should have legs for a while. Expansions add more players and new mechanics, and the Rocket Dice.... Uhh.... well, they're they're shaped like rockets!

I have owned this game for years. Years! It's so simple. On your turn, you flip a card. It tells you who to attack. You send your ships against their's. You bolster your ships with an attack card. Highest total wins. If the attacker wins, he gets a colony. First one to five colonies wins. It's simple! Oh, except that there are about 150 alien race cards that all break the game in one way or another, and the combination of powers makes the game different every time. Unless you get the Grudge or Hate every time like I seem to. Ugh!

I have tried a few times to play this game, but it seems like every time I want to get it to the table, a new player is joining in. So we usually start with the intro mission, which means I have played that one like 6 times but none of the others. The expansions have come out in English now, so this is the perfect time to move forward with that.

Clearly there is interest here, since I have put together a Formula D league. I guess I'll do a writeup about that at some point on my website.

The mechanics and theme of this game are so well married that the only retheme I can even think of is Ghostbusters (but clearly I am wrong, since they used Zombicide instead). This game is really well put together, and the variety of maps (over 15 I think at this point?) will keep it fresh. It's a good co-op game, so it's a good candidate for family game nights. Not that I have those, but if I did, I would bring this. I've actually been playing this with my brother and his fiance, so that's actually kind of on point.

Another of those games where theme and mechanics work really well together. You're a police officer investigating a murder, but you still have to deal with regular crime and traffic issues. There is supposed to be a season 2 expansion coming out hopefully soon, but there is enough in the base game to keep it interesting for quite a number of plays.

2014 Spiel des Jahres winner. Better than every other game that came out in 2014, this game about putting camels on top of each other is probably deserving of that title. Will the blue camel (who's been in last place the entire race) suddenly cross the finish line against all odds by a perfect (and often jokingly predicted) roll of the dice? Probably yes. A few expansion modules have been released, but I have not fully embraced their use yet.

At its core, Sheriff of Nottingham is about lying. Or telling the complete truth and making people think that you are lying. You can make more money often times by simply importing all legal goods but having people check you bag each time. Or you can make money by smuggling in tons of crossbows and claiming they are apples. The game is enhanced if you role play, but a lot of groups might not want to get that involved. By the way, I have 5 apples. And almost certainly none of them are mead.
