I've done the 100 x 1 challenges the past few years, focusing on new to me games. This has been a lot of fun, but I have a lot of unplayed games. Like a TON.


So the goal for this year will be:

50+ new-to-me games from the collection (http://bit.ly/kengioau)
25+ new-to-me solo games (from collection or played from other sources)
25- purchased games (not counting expansions)
25+ games sold from the collection

Games from the Collection - 20/50
mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb


Solo Games Played - 2/25

Do I think it's doable? Maybe, and that's the point. No point in aiming at a target that's too easy.

And because it feels funny to not at least make note of the new-to-me games...

New-to-Me Games - 19

I've heard tons of raving for this game, but have never had a chance to actually play or buy it. The store at Unpub 8 had it, so I bought it on site. Then while I was punching it, it shifted and jumped over the railing and onto the escalator below. Luckily I don't mind a slightly dinged copy at this point.

After playing this twice, I kind of get it. It's simple, kind of elegant, but easy enough to play. I'm not sure it's worth all of the buzz I've seen, but it's good. One I'll likely play at least 10 times this year.

I have always enjoyed the concept of Button Men. Games that work well at conventions, a fun way to meet other players on the fly, and a game you can play with just a few dice in your pocket. Unfortunately, I became aware of Button Men after it was popular at conventions, so I never got a chance to really play it.

When they announced the new card based version, I was all for it, and I really enjoy it. Simple game play, quick explanation, and very portable. I plan on wearing my "Skully" button at cons and having a character card or two in with my nametag and the appropriate dice in my pocket.

A friend brought Captain Sonar to the FLGS to give a shot. After waiting for quite a while to get significant numbers, we decided to give it a shot. It's not a bad game, but it just didn't catch me. Not bad, just not for me.

I got this in a trade and while I enjoyed it, I didn't see it hitting the table again anytime soon. A good game can be let go if someone else will enjoy it more.

At first, the idea of a legacy worker placement game didn't catch my eye. But as I looked into it more, I was more intrigued. I picked it up for my wife and I to play with another couple that we know. Their first legacy style game and with two plays done, it's been good so far. Excited to see what else comes in the box.

Chemistry Fluxx was one of the requested games I took with me to Unpub 8. The Helium rule can be fun, especially when the owner of the keeper is giggly to begin with. I enjoyed it, though not any more than regular Fluxx.

An interesting merge of technology and analog gaming, this has the players working together to solve a case. I've only played the introduction so far, but it was fun to see a different take on the co-operative style of game. The app needed some work, but I've been told by the designer that the latest version should work much better.

This one has been sitting on the shelf for a little while, but I can see it now making it to the table with a little regularity. The combat is interesting, the different player abilities keep it fresh, and it didn't take too long to really get it. Just hate the laser cut counters and the soot that comes with them.

After missing out on the Kickstarter for season 2, I decided to pick up season 1. I enjoy direct conflict games, dice rolling, and the art style, so hopefully it's a hit. If not, I blame Brandon Kempf.

Since having played this a few times, some of the rules could be a little clearer, but it's a well done two player direct combat game. So far, though, the Moon Elf just keeps kicking the Barbarian's butt.

The original Downforce is older than I am, but old games can still be fun. It took a little bit to really get the importance of when to move certain cars, but it was quite well done. I'd love to see this with 6 players, each with their own car.

I Kickstarted this way back when, but never actually got it to the table. I helped playtest the digital version, which helped clear up a lot of the card interactions for me. It was a little mean, but I really liked playing it.

I got a review pnp copy of this at Unpub 8 and got it to the table last weekend. It's good, with strong push your luck elements and some real pressure from the game.

Having never played any version of Fireball Island, I was expecting a lot of chaos, and I was right. It wasn't a bad game, but I don't know that it's really my thing. If someone were to set it up, I'd be happy to play, but it wouldn't hit table for me.

I really enjoy games where cards can do one of many things, like Glory to Rome, and this one feels a bit like that. Different jobs, resources to gather and use, though in this it's things like Dairy and Meat. It needs some reference cards or better iconography for the actions, but it was quite fun.

I've had Formula D for... a lot of years. I really enjoy racing games, but just couldn't get this to the table. Took it to game night last night and had a good time, despite coming in second. We only did the beginner rules, but I want to play this more.

Another game from Fowers Games on the list, and one I have wanted to try for a while. The thinky nature and attempting to out-plan your opponent is quite fun, but it shine when your opponent and you are on the same level of play.

After having this for a few years, I finally sat down and got it to the table. It's not a short rulebook, and it's a lot of rulebook to work through, but the game is actually very clean once you get it. I thought I was going to win the game, as did my opponent, but they ended up victorious. One I'd like to try again now that I have some better feeling for it.

I've been pretty good with Kickstarter this year. I've backed the occasional game for $1 to help show support, but with Gruff going to a Kickstarter exclusive model, I kind of had to back it. I really enjoy Gruff and want to play more of it, and the stuffed universe is rather cute.

Paperback is a personal favorite. It's a fun deckbuilding game, works great as a game about words, and a really fun game that works well as an introduction to non-gamers. Hardback is the "pre-quill" to the original and I enjoy it a lot. Using any letters as wilds is really useful and I like the different genre abilities. I'd like to see if there's a different feel at 3 or 4 players, but my wife and I really enjoy it with two players. I'd love to see it come to digital devices like Paperback has.

I'm a huge fan of the cartoon and was really excited when I got to demo this at Gen Con. Unfortunately, the demoer made most of my decisions for me, making it more of a "show" and less of a demo. Got it in the mail yesterday and tried it last night, and I'm very pleasantly surprised. There's a lot of game in this box, and while there are some questions with the rules, the generally make sense and fit the rules from the show. I'm excited to try the other teams and see how they play.

I picked this up as a quick solo game late in 2017, but it didn't hit table. The rules could do with some better examples, but I enjoyed the first two plays and can see it being something I wish was smaller so I could take it with me.

My wife and I enjoy the games from Doctor Finn Games, and this looks simple and enjoyable. It's also pretty and it was the Kickstarter edition, so I decided to pick it up.

After getting this to the table, we found it to be quite light. That's not a bad thing, but I think we were expecting a little more from it than it was. It's not bad, just lighter than expected.

The rules could have been a little clearer, but despite coming in last, I enjoyed this game. It's a little planning, a little luck, and easy to play. A friend sent me the three promos for the game, so this needs to get played more soon.

My wife and I really enjoy simple and fun two player games, and Odin's Ravens fits that perfectly. Really easy to understand, simple options during the game, but a feeling of accomplishment when you've won.

We enjoyed this so much, we immediately played again. Can't wait to get this to the table more. My one complaint is that the ravens tend to fall over. Might have to 3D print something to help with that.

I've had Onitama for... a while. The idea has always interested me, the game play is simple enough that I could talk about the game and how it worked, but I never actually got it to the table. I can now say that that is a shame, since this is a wonderfully thinky, yet approachable, abstract game. I just worry, as my one figure has his head tilted. He's judging me.
