Originally found here - I made my own list - https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/218941/item/5100960#item5...

A few clarifications:

1) The list may be completed in any order
2) The same game may not be used to satisfy multiple criteria
3) You do not need to fulfill exactly one category per week. You may play games at whatever pace you want, the goal being to complete the list by December 31, 2017

And here are the categories:


1. a game with an App or another electronic device
2. a game designed by a person of colour
3. a game by multiple designers
4. a political game

5. a game with an animal on the cover
6. a game from a genre you usually do not play
7. a game published 2017
8. a game involving a mythical creature
9. a game involving travel
10. a game with a subtitle

11. a game that always makes you happy
12. a game including food
13. a game set in a steampunk world

14. a game set during wartime

42. a game with a beautiful board
43. a game with at least 100 different cards in it
44. a game you have owned longer than 2016, but didn’t play in 2016

45. a game depicting itself or another game in the game
46. a mass market game
47. a game with a character, that has your occupation

*The goal of the challenge is to provide a fun way to get people to play a wide variety of games, some of which may be outside their typical 'gaming comfort zone'. Feel free to modify the categories/bend the rules as necessary but don't immediately give up on the more 'difficult' categories. There are TONS of games out there--you might be surprised at what you can find!
