We all make goals and resolutions going into the new year. I made a few for myself, using a journal to track them. But what fun is tracking goals if you can't share them with others, and gain some added accountability from the community? So follow along with my goals and let's see if I can accomplish everything I am setting out to do this year!

This is a fairly standard challenge here at BGG: the 10x10. Committing to playing 10 games you own 10 times each might leave some people wondering why a person would attempt this. Bottom line: if the game is worth owning, then it should also be worth playing multiple times. This is a way of making sure a few games get those repeated plays, either because they haven't hit the table often as of late (like my copy of Innovation) or because you want to explore them more (like Android: Netrunner).

1. Android: Netrunner
2. Charterstone
3. Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn
4. Mystic Vale
5. 878: Vikings - Invasions of England
6. Seasons
7. Scythe
8. Innovation
9. Kingdom Builder
10. Albion’s Legacy

This is a commitment to play every game I own at least one time this year. Yes, every game. No, my collection is not over-sized so this is a manageable task, I think, but still an important one. If I own the game, I should want to play it at least once every year.

Here's where the plays get harder. This is a fluid list, meaning swaps can be made as needed. Substitutions, such as plays of X cycle, can be made to where a game like Lord of the Rings LCG can fill multiple locations. My intent is to hammer these games on the list, but who knows how the year will play out for these. It'll be tough to accomplish, but so far the progress made is encouraging!

62 of 486.

Here are my plans, overlapping Silver and Gold:

01 War of the Ring (Second Edition)
02 Firefly: The Game
03 878: Vikings - Invasions of England
04 Yokohama
05 One Deck Dungeon
06 Lignum (Second Edition)
07 Argent: The Consortium
08 Fields of Green
09 A Feast for Odin

10 Charterstone
11 Scythe
12 Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King
13 Raiders of the North Sea
14 Eight Minute Empire: Legends
15 The Ruhr
16 Mage Knight
17 Albion's Legacy
18 Holmes: Sherlock & Mycroft

19 Imperial Settlers
20 Viticulture: Essential Edition
21 Kingdom Builder
22 Terraforming Mars
23 Race for the Galaxy
24 Castles of Burgundy
25 Mystic Vale
26 Patchwork
27 7 Wonders Duel

28 Hanamikoji
29 Star Realms
30 Kingdomino
31 Sentinels of the Multiverse
32 Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn
33 Final Fantasy Trading Card Game
34 Android: Netrunner
35 Arkham Horror: The Card Game
36 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

This is a tough one: a commitment to not buy new games. Crazy, I know. And tough as hell. My wife, bless her heart, has convinced me to allow any expansions to have a pass so that could help. And I can tell you that I'm very, very motivated to hit the two goals that will let me pick up a new game this year.

I will not purchase any new games in 2018, with these two exceptions:
meeple If I get my weight under 200#, I may purchase one new game
meeple When I complete my 10 x 10 for 2018, I may purchase one game.

There are a few other ways new games may enter the household over the course of the year:
ninja Any review games sent to me are acceptable; however, I will not actively approach publishers to request review copies of games.
ninja I may participate in the annual local math trade.
ninja When the time comes back around, I may consider joining in on the Secret Elephant gift exchange but can, like this year, choose to opt out of any Secret Santa-type exchanges.
ninja I may complete the Grey Havens and the Harad cycle in the Lord of the Rings LCG throughout the course of the year without those adventure packs counting as games purchased. These will be my first cycles to expand the game and, since it is my most-played solo game, getting a little more to tinker with this year will be essential to keep it hitting the table.
ninja Print and play games are perfectly acceptable games to add to my collection, so long as they are free apart from the supplies needed to make them.
ninja Birthday and other occasions where someone chooses to gift me a game are fine. If they ask what game(s) I want, I am allowed to provide a list but I will not suggest it unless asked. There are good gifts besides board games that I can receive.
ninja Events for games I own, such as Lord of the Rings LCG or Android: Netrunner, are acceptable to attend even if they require an admission fee to participate. Promotional items from such events are not considered to be new game purchases.
ninja Winning a game in a contest or at a demo day does not count as a purchase.
ninja Thanks to my wife's prompting, expansions will be acceptable purchases because they are not increasing our game collection's size.

Apart from those conditions, I will not purchase a single game in 2018. If there is a game I want to play, I will be forced to find someone local with a copy who is willing to teach the game.

I've been reviewing games for over a year now. I've been a bit of an unplanned hiatus from writing reviews but I need to get back in the saddle a bit. I shifted a little last year toward writing strategy articles in addition to reviews, and I want that trend to continue this year. So rather than set a goal for X reviews and X strategy posts, I'll set an overall goal of 50 posts on the blog this year. That is close to one a week, which should be doable.

This is where I'll be tracking games that are new-to-me in 2018, but aren't games that I own. My goal is to hit 50, which will be a lot lower than the number I hit last year. But with the intent of playing some games many times, there won't be a lot of time to try a ton of new games.

One Deck Dungeon
Police Precinct
How to Rob a Bank
Hunt for the Ring
The Lord of the Rings
Sagrada
7 Ronin
The Lord of the Rings: Confrontation
Get Bit

We all have those shame piles. Mine increased a little with a few late review copies and some Christmas gifts. Of the games here, only Mythotopia, Summoner Wars, Frostgrave, and Asgard's Chosen have been lingering for a while. But I need to get this down to 0 this year.

Even though it doesn't apply to board games directly, I am also an author of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Last year I had my first novella published. This year my first full novel should release, and I need to get to work on the sequel. Why not let you hold me accountable for my editing and writing progress, too?
