Just a list for myself to have easy access to the Challenges I'm going to try to complete in 2018, this has a number of Board Gaming challenges as well as some non-gaming challenges I'll be taking on.

I completed all my challenges of 2016, but failed a couple in 2017. Planning to complete all of the challenges on this list in 2018.

Goal: To brush off some games that are starting to collect dust since I acquired them. Target is to play 18 of these games in 2018.

This was my favorite challenge in 2016, as it triggers me to finally get some games to the table that otherwise are just sitting there unplayed.

Goal: To post at least 45 reviews of games that I have played at least 10 times, this should get me the gold reviewers badge.

No list yet for 2018, and as I think I was the only one that joined and completed the review challenge in 2016, I doubt there will be a list for it this year, but I'm happy just to go for it by myself.
The 2016 challenge triggered me to post my first reviews, which were pretty well received, so I'll add more in 2018. Feels like giving a little back to this community.

Last year I tried to get to 25 total, but ended up posting 43 during the year, so will try to keep that rate up in 2018.

Completed 14/45

1 The Fox in the Forest
2 5-Minute Dungeon
3 Loopin' Chewie
4 Unlock! Escape Adventures
5 Rhino Hero: Super Battle
6 Pocket Landship
7 Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases
8 7 Wonders Duel
9 Camel Up
10 The Card Game of Oz
11 Stone Age
12 Concordia
13 Pandemic
14 30 Seconds

Goal: To play 52 games, each fitting one on a list of specific criteria.

Enjoyed this challenge last year, as it brings some different games to the table. Helped create this year's list and it looks interesting again.

Goal: To play 10 games ten times each. (Hard Core version, so no changing of the list during the year)

Have enjoyed and completed this challenge in 2015 and 2016, but failed in 2017 due to some bad choices. Back for year four.

New challenge, started by myself.
This challenge is about raising your H-Index. This will stimulate me to revisit games I have played before, and gives me an alternative challenge that entails playing games more than once.
