I'm stealing this gaming challenge idea from SubtlyArtistic for three reasons...
1- I love playing games
2- I use games to spend more time with my kids
3- I love challenges

My kids are my gaming group. I have four teen age daughters. Before going for this challenge, I had to make sure they were on board. I expected push back but instead they pushed me further. I talked to them about the 10x10 challenge and the 100x1 challenge but told them I thought the Alphabet challenge was unattainable for us. Not only are they excited about the first two challenges but they told me they want to take on the Alphabet challenge as well. Now I have an excuse to buy three new games...ones that start with W, X, and Z.



School days kill our gaming time so I expect the bulk of this challenge to be accomplished in the summer but we can't wait until then to start. The gauntlet has been thrown down...January 1, 2018...it is on!

The Challenge...
