Back again for its fourth year! Thanks to Papa Ninja for creating this challenge in 2015. He started it as a way to encourage himself and others to play games with their families. It's based on the very popular 10x10 challenge, but only a quarter of the size. Because after all, shouldn't our spouses and kids be our favorite gaming partners?

So what is this challenge?

Play 5 games 5 times each with your family. Sounds simple, right? The fun part is that your family members get to choose the 5 games. You may share the 5 games between multiple family members, or have a separate list for each member in your family--whatever THEY want to do!


What's the point?

We, as gamers, are usually the ones choosing the games, buying the games, setting up the games, tearing down the games, logging the games... you get the idea. So, the main goal of this challenge is not only to play more games with your family, but also to give up a little bit of control, and allow your spouse or kids (or parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, best friends, whomever!) choose which games they would like to play.

The secondary goal of this challenge is to teach each other about great games for families and kids. There are a ton out there, and my collection isn't going to be the same as yours. By perusing each other's lists, asking questions, learning what ages play, etc, we can find better games, build better collections, and as a bonus, spend more quality, non-screen time with our families. I love reading the stories! Please feel free to include any comments about the games, or the plays you wish.

I'm in. What do I do now?

Eeasy Peasy. First, let your family pick out 5 (or more) games. Then:

1. Add an item to this geeklist. If you're keeping track of your games in your own geeklist (which is fun to add more details, but not necessary), you can add that link as your item, or you can make it any game you want. You must have some sort of tracking system in this geeklist. More on that next.
I also highly recommend using your quickbar bookmarks for easy access to your item. If you don't know how to do that, see this. For more information about adding items to or creating geeklists, check this link.

2. Anytime you play one of those games with the appropriate family members, update your item in this geeklist. You can decide how you would like to record your plays. A lot of people use for unplayed and for played. Check other entries for ideas, but you can do it however you like.

3. When you have completed the challenge please send me a geekmail with a link to your item on this geeklist. (Click on the number of your entry and it will give you a permanent hyperlink in your address bar you can copy and paste). I will post all the success stories lower in this header.
Congratulations!

That's it! You made it!

Cool. Anything else I need to know?

Yeah, but just a little bit. Here are some other important rules.

1. You may join the challenge at any point in 2018. If you join this challenge in January, you may count all plays from the whole month. However, if you join February 1st or later, you may only count games you played after you officially join this challenge by adding your item. Your family member can switch out one game for another at any point, but the same rule applies. You can only use plays from after you change the list.

2. At least one person other than you must choose the games on your list. This is the whole point of this challenge!

3. You may list 6 games from the start, and use one as an "alternate." Basically, to complete the challenge successfully, you need to play 5 of the 6 games five times each. Adding an alternate from the start means that you don't have to start over logging plays if you switch out a game, as in #1 above.

3. Overlap with other challenges is completely allowed. If you're also doing a 100x1, you may use each of the 5 games.

4. Part of the fun of this challenge is the mini-community we create. So, be a good neighbor. Introduce yourself to the list above and below yours. Comment on random listings. Subscribe to a few families you have games in common with. Be friendly. Be kind. Be encouraging. Be helpful.

All the other challenges have microbadges. Do we get one?

You betcha! The participation badge will cost you a measly 8 geekgold, and then you can show off your awesome challenge to all of BGGeekdom. The award badges will be given out once a month to anyone who has completed the challenge and sent me a message. We're official now!

Participation: mb
Award: mb is last year's. This year's will be coming soon.

Are there any other incentives for finishing?

You mean aside from the quality time you're spending with your family and the satisfaction of knowing that at least one of your New Year's Resolutions wasn't all for naught? Sure! Any geekgold tipped to this geeklist will be handed out to winners as evenly as I can make it. I'll likely chip in some of my own as well.

I'm still confused! Help me!
Sure, here are some good references and starting points.

2017 Family Choice Challenge: Get Your Family Involved!
The 2016 Family Choice Challenge: Play 5 Games 5 Times Each
The 2015 Family Choice Challenge: Play 5 Games 5 Times Each
2018 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
Looking for more challenges? Look no further.

And Finally, all the Victors!
None yet, but there's plenty of time!

Now, have fun, get that family gaming!

Sadly, I don't know if Max wants to participate again this year. He loves Ticket to Ride so much, he's talking about wanting to do a 1x100! We'll see if I can change his mind. :-D

Lanterns
Pokemon Master Trainer
Sagrada
Ticket to Ride
Takenoko:

Science (Zombie) Dice:

He's LOVING Zombie Dice. Though, he has no idea what zombies are. Someone here on BGG rethemed it to Science Dice, without changing the dice at all. It's genius! And now he loves it.

We're in for another year. Didn't quite meet the goal last year but we were so very close that I know we can meet it this year.

The first 3 are new games for us, I was really hoping to get more of our new games on the list but this is what was chosen:

Tiny Epic Kingdoms
Anomia
Citadels
Settlers of Catan (the 13 year old couldn't be persuaded to try something new)
Ticket To Ride (the 16 year old insisted that if we have to play Catan then we have to have this one as well)
Queendominio is our alternate selection, but I doubt it will get subbed in for anything.

First time we're joining in.

My six year old daughter called out "SET Junior" immediately after I explained how this challenge works. I don't really like SET and certainly not this junior-variant so she was happy to force me into playing it with her this year. Next she absolutely wanted to pick ten games instead of five. I really don't know if she can do a 10x5, but I've put a list on the wall where she can cross off all plays and she's really looking forward to it, so we'll try.


(plays updated 31 March)

[My daughter's selection
28/50

Afzakker
Carcassonne
Elfenland
Forbidden Island
Land in Zicht!
My First Stone Age
Pickomino
Pim Pam Pet

We didn't complete the challenge last year, but we also didn't start until later in the year so here's to completing it this year. The boys and Mrs. each got a choice, the boys chose one together, and we picked one as a family. The only stipulation I put on the family choice is that it be a cooperative game so we'll be playing Shadows over Camelot without a traitor. We'll be tracking wins per game and dates played on my list so if you're interested in that sort of thing click through to check it out.

Younger child
Ticket to Ride -

Older child
Ethnos -

Boy's collective choice
Sagrada -

Mrs.
Dominion -

Cooperative Family Choice
Shadows over Camelot -

This is my first year doing this challenge. I've been wanting to get my 14 year old more interested in gaming, so I asked her what she thought about this challenge. She was excited that she'd be able to pick whatever games she wanted. So, here's our list. The first three are her childhood favorites, the others are ones I've introduced her to more recently.

Clue

Harry Potter: Diagon Alley Board Game

Rainbowland

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival

Gloom

Alternate:
Patchwork

2017 - Joined mid-year, and didn't quite make it. We had quality time, just not gaming.
2018 - Sis found some Likes & Dislikes last year, so hopefully more luck with a better selection - and longer to complete it in.

Sis enjoys Deduction games and Fillers
221B Baker Street: The Master Detective Game
Clue FX
Le Fantôme de l'Opéra
The Logo Board Game
Batman Fluxx
Cardline: Marvel (Reserve Game)

Scribes v Son - Year 1
Son mainly enjoys AbStrats - because Wins frequently
The plan is to have Monthly Meetup; AbStrats during the day, and Fluxx in evening when his GF is available.
Draughts/Checkers
Hive
Ko-An
Quarto
Batman Fluxx
Small World (Reserve Game)
Son and I enjoy Small World - the trouble is finding a 3rd, or more, for a better game.
