I like replaying games. I have plenty of games I love on my shelf and don't see the point of letting them sit there while I instead play some new hotness no one will be thinking about in three months.

Unfortunately it's tough to get the folks I play with to agree to play any one thng ten times in a year, except maybe Terraforming Mars. So a true 10 x 10 list would be an exercise in failure.

However, for 2017 my pal Ron (rocksnrolls) Lacer did an "alternative" 10 x 10 list that looked neat. So instead of committing to 10 specific games, I'll try 10 categories of games and plays.

Note that although a single play may satisfy several categories, I can only count it for one.

CURRENT OVERALL STATUS: 43%

ANOTHER CHANCE

It won't kill me if I play ten games I'm not so hot on. Maybe I'll change my mind!

BORAT VOICE MY WIFE

(Two player games with Becky)

My wife enjoys games but not as much or as often as I do. We haven't played together, just the two of us, in some time, and we'd both like to change that!

NEW HOTNESS

(Games that were released in 2018)

My pals and I usually aren't quick to jump on the new release bandwagon, and I'm actually pretty grateful for that. But I'll try to play ten hot-off-the-griddle games this year!

THAT'S SO LAST YEAR

(Games that were on my Best of 2017 list.)

For the past umpteen years I've been doing a yearly top ten or so of what was new to me. Too often there are items on there which I liked, but never get played again for some reason, even though they stood out. This is for revisiting (and maybe re-evaluating) them.

STATUS:

1: Medici: The Card Game (#10) (1/13)
2: Fallout: The Board Game (#8) (1/24)
3: Escape From 100 Million BC (co-#1) (2/1)
4: Cobras (#5) (2/4)
5: Time Stories (#1) (2/10)
6: The Lost Expedition (co-#1) (2/17)
7: Crossing (#3) (3/4)

(I'm letting this entry have duplicate games, mainly because I'm not sure how many of these I have access to.)

1: Alien Artifacts (1/28)
2: Valeria: Card Kingdoms (1/28)
3: 51st State: Master Set (1/28)
