Ever since my gaming group busted up a few years back gaming hasn't come easily. The family will play at times but not a lot. However, last year we discovered my oldest daughter's boyfriend and my second daughter's fiancé(both in their 20s) like to play games.

In 2016 we only had 25 total plays(pitiful, I know). So, instead of 10x10 challenges and things like that, I decided I'd be happy if we just beat our total number of games played in 2016. On April 16th we met the mark and have since surpassed it.

Below is a list of the different games played in chronological order of the first time we played them this year.

Since we hit this challenge pretty early in the year, I think I'll set another challenge for the remainder of the year. We'll try to get all of our games to the table at least once before the end of 2017.

Thanks for reading.

My daughter's boyfriend bought this game. We played on New Year's Day. We enjoyed the game but I think everyone likes other versions of Munchkin better. But we try to rotate playing different versions. It should hit the table again soon.

Personally my favorite Munchkin as a big Marvel Comic fan as a kid. Hasn't hit the table lately but it will soon.

My son and I like this game a lot but others kind of don't. Usually falls to the wayside when picking what to play. My daughter's boyfriend bought the 2nd one so we should start trying to mix races etc.

My brother got me this for Christmas because he knows we like to play games. Played three games and everyone seemed to like it. I suggest it whenever we're looking for a quick game but never get any takers.

I love Lords of Waterdeep. It's just a different mechanic than my other games. I'm trying to get everyone to try the expansion. Hopefully we get the chance soon.

We got the Armed and Dangerous expansion so gave it a try. This is my son's game and he loves it. The expansion added some fun to the game as well.

Got the game for the wife but she never wants to play. We decided to try to rotate all of our Munchkins so we played this for a change.

My sister's game and still a favorite of hers after all these years. It's the game which got us back into table top gaming. We were at her house so introduced my daughter and her boyfriend to it. They both liked it a lot. It'll get more play of we're at my sisters again.

My daughter's boyfriend's game. He has all of the expansions. I'm not sure how many in total we were playing with but we really liked the game. I didn't buy it at first because the flow seemed unusual to me and I wasn't sure how it would be. It turned out to be a good game which we enjoyed. I probably should've bought it but since he has it we can play his.

This is a neat game which doesn't hit the table nearly enough. We're trying to get a game in with more than three players. I think we've only played with three so want to try it out with more.

Introduced Guillotine to a friend while waiting for others to show up. It's always fun to play and a great filer game.

I picked up this game one day we were planning on playing games because we were expecting seven players and this played up to eight players. We only had six players but still played it. everyone liked it so we played it twice instead of playing something different. We played the person on the left roles for the monsters which was everyone's favorite part I think.

We've had this game for a while but it took some time for people to take a liking to it. Now it seems to be a favorite. We actually like the randomness as a change of pace from other games. I always say rolling dice is always fun.

We got this for Christmas and it took until April to get it to the table. I think everyone was worried about being the traitor and having to take on everyone else. Now everyone loves it and it's actually being requested. So far out of three games the traitor has won every time.
