This is our second year for the 5 x 5 Family Challenge. We were nine games short of completing the challenge last year, but that's between starting later in the year and purchasing new games that we were wanting to play more than the one's we had chosen for the challenge.

We've got two boys (aged 11 and 14). Each boy got an individual choice and they had a choice that the two of them agreed upon. The wife got a choice and then the final game was agreed upon as a family. My only stipulation for the family choice was that we chose a cooperative game so that we have at least one cooperative game on the list.

We'll be keeping score again this year and here's the icon breakdown for that.

Me -
The Mrs. - heart
Elder Child (14) - d10-7
Younger Child (11) - bluetrain

This is the elder child's choice. (Which is good for me since I really enjoy this one and would have used this as my choice.)

This is the younger child's choice. We'll be playing with the 1812 expansion for the bigger cards mostly, but will likely end up doing the mega variant just so that we don't have to filter out all the original routes.

This is the Mrs.'s choice and likely her new favorite game. (Direct quote after playing it: "Oh crap, am I going to have to tell my husband to buy another game?!" Since it's in the challenge we obviously bought it. )

3/11/18 - bluetrain
3/21/18 - heart
4/8/18 - heart

So this is our latest acquisition and the boy's decided to switch out their agreed upon choice of Simon's Cat Card Game for this. It's been a hit so far with everyone.

2/11/18 - heart
2/20/18 - heart
3/12/18 - d10-7

This is the family choice. We'll be playing this cooperatively instead of with the traitor so a win by the game will be denoted with a sauron and a win by the family will be indicated with a .

1/17/18 - sauron
3/12/18 - sauron
3/24/18 - (Our first ever win!)
