Hi there!
Why making this Geeklist? Well, I bought so many (good?) Co-Op games in the past, from which I knew that I won't play them very often (if at all!) in my regular gaming group as I have one or two friends in said group, which don't like Co-Op games. Sure, they give them one try, but that's normally enough for them. But I bought them anyway! Why? Because they can be played solo!
And so I thought: Well, then I would play them solo! Or with another friend, who likes Co-Op games just as much as I do! But up to now, I haven't done that much about that....

And this is going to change this year! This year I will start playing all these nice games... or at least that is my plan! And just to motivate myself and keeping track of the games I played I decided to write my own little list. Maybe someone will join me on my little quest? Give me a bit of motivation? Maybe someone finds this list and wants to talk about their experience with a particular game, especially in solo mode... Or maybe I will do this all for myself and nobody joins me, which is still fine!

I chose the word "Challenge 2017" in the title of this list, because I want to challenge myself! And for a challenge you need goals!
All the goals I will define will either be reached playing solo or in Co-Op with others. Both is fine!
To rate this challenge a success I have to complete at least 90% of my goals and 30% of my hardcore goals (Numbers are not final, maybe I will change them before the second half of the year). More is better, less must be punished... maybe I will forbid myself to buy any more plays I want to play solo... or something like that. That's still to be decided. I accept suggestions!

1. Board Game: Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) [Average Rating:7.74 Overall Rank:79]

So... this one is very important to me and that's why I list it first.
With the arrival of the Road to Legend App solo play for Descent has become really, really easy. Sure, there were solo rules made by fellow BGG users before that and I bet they are really good! (I must admit, I haven't tried them by now.. maybe later?)
But with a true solo mode, I had to start playing Descent solo!
Edit: I scratched that hardcore goal with the "all one archtype parties", because after finishing the campaign I don't think that this would make sense and that any of those would stand a chance.... except for an all cleric party maybe.
Maybe I will try this another time... next year maybe!

Goals:
Complete the Kindred Fire campaign
Complete the Nerekhall campaign from the Road to Legend App
Complete at least 5 Delves

Hardcore Goals:
Write Session Reports for at least one Campaign
Complete the Kindred Fire Campaign four times, with "true" parties only (only Warriors, only Scouts, only Mages and only Clerics)
Warrior only party
Scout only party
Cleric only party
Mage only


Paint the Nerekhall Miniatures

Another Kickstarter title I'm really looking forward to! Can't wait to play this huge game! Because I'm not only a big fan of Co-Op games or games with miniatures, but I also love games with a good "campaign mode"! So yeah, can't wait to play this!

Hardcore Goals:
Complete the game!

I'm so looking forward to this game!
I backed it on Kickstarter on the Immortal level and since I'm awaiting it's arrival! I will probably start my playthrough on this one without painting the miniatures, because if I would wait until I'm done with that (as I do with Descent) I won't play this game for a long time!

Goals:
will be defined as soon as I got the game

I love Dark Souls! I played each and all of them on my Playstation, got my Platinum Trophy in Demon Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls II (didn't do Dark Souls III... it was just too much for me!).
So I had to back this game on Kickstarter and now I'm waiting to get it so that I can play and kick the a***s of the Dancer or Ornstein and Smaugh again and again and again.... (I hated these boss battles!)

I resisted for a very long time but in the end I finally made a "Late Pledge" on this game! It just looks too good and pushed too many buttons for me! I just hope that I don't regret it and that it is as good as I think it is. (especially solo!)

I'm a really big fan of the Pathfinder Adventure Card game and as such I had to back this game! I'm looking forward to it. Unfortunatly it is already quite late and it looks like it will take some more time until it arrives, but this will give me time for other titles on this list...

This may be one of the hardest things I put in this list.
As I already mentioned: I do love this game!
But it takes so much time to set up if you are alone! Especially if you play three or four characters (which I do because I like to see how their powers and abilities work together...).
I already started a playthrough on this one last year on OCTGN (helps with the setup). I'm somewhere in the second adventure. Now it is time to finish it!

Goals:
Complete the Adventure Path (which I started in 2016)
Into the Worldwound
The Worldwound Incursion
Sword of Valor
The Demons Heresy
The Midnight Isles
The Herald of the Ivorsy Labyrinth
City of Locusts


Hardcore Goals:
Start and finish the Mummys Mask Adventure Path

Play a game against the Automaton with Crimean Khanate
Play a game against the Automaton with Nordic Kingdoms
Play a game against the Automaton with Rusviet Union
Play a game against the Automaton with Republic of Polania

The Campaign Box for this great game is delayed (but for good reasons: More of the good stuff for free!!!).
Nevertheless I want to try the campaign. Because the next thing I love are deckbuilding games so this game is also a "must play" in this list!

Goals:
Play 10 solo games against Tiberius
Complete each Campaign once

Hardcore Goals:
these are probably defined as soon as I got the campaign expansions
