Self-Moderated Challenge:
Just like last year, the challenge is a self-moderated challenge. MicroBadges will no longer be awarded. They will be available for purchase sometime in the first part of 2021 and will be linked below once available.


Goal of the Challenge:
As a counterpoint to the Cult of the New, this challenge encourages people to play each game several times to explore and experience them in depth. There is no rush to find the optimum strategy on your first play, or read all of the cards beforehand. Instead, each play reveals something more and something different, you get to try various strategies, and everyone's strategies evolve with their understanding and learning of the game. If you are tired of constantly learning new rules when running after the latest hotness, never really learning various strategies to any game, and needing to relearn the rules of old games because it's been too long since they were played, this is the challenge for you.

Previous Year's Challenges
2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2016 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2017 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2018 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2019 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2020 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each

The Challenge: Play 10 games 10 times each in 2021
-Anyone can join at any time in 2021.
-There are 2 versions of the Challenge, Normal & Hardcore, which will be explained below.

Note 1: All Normal and Hardcore lists are separate challenges, so a single play can appear in only one list. You can include a game on more than one list, and even have the exact same list for both Normal and Hardcore challenges, but you'd need to have 10 plays for each list the game appears in.
The key difference with the Hardcore challenge is that you are not allowed to change your mind on the 11 games once you have created the list. However, you can downgrade your Hardcore list to a Normal list and freely change listed games. You could even start a new Hardcore list, but you could only include plays done after creation of the new Hardcore list.

Note 2: If you want to do both a Normal and Hardcore challenge, you may put both lists into one entry. Just make sure to add a comment with your Hardcore list.

How to join the Normal Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Normal Challenge and then write down your ten games, if you've decided. You do not have to decide your 10 games ahead of time. You could even wait until you've finished playing 10 games 10 times each before posting to the challenge.
3. You may swap out games as you like. As long as you play 10 game 10 times by the end of 2020, you've succeeded at the challenge.
4. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
5. You may include any plays that happened in 2020, even if they were before you joined the challenge.
6. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, you may purchase the Normal MicroBadge, which will be available sometime in the beginning of the year and will be linked below once available.

How to join the Hardcore Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Hardcore Challenge and then write down your ten games including one alternate.
3. Comment on your item and copy the list of 11 games into it.
4. To complete the challenge, you must play 10 of the 11 games you've specified at least 10 times. You may not swap in/out any other games.
5. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
6. You may not include any plays that happened before you joined the challenge.
7. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, you may purchase the Hardcore MicroBadge, which will be available sometime in the beginning of the year and will be linked below once available.

Courtesy of Miche, should you have failed a 10x10 Challenge at any point, you can buy this Microbadge: Microbadge: I tried but did not manage to play 10 games 10 times each within one year.

Don't have the GeekGold?: Anyone who has completed the challenge, but can't afford the badge or has very little GeekGold, please post here: 2021 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each discussion and ask for help.

Details of what does and does not count:
--If you play a game multiple times in a row, each completed game counts as a play. Partial games do not count, but can be added together to count as whole games.

--Feel free to include expansions in your games. It is suggested that when playing expansions that cannot be played on their own, list the entry under the main game. No need to specify the expansions used at any point. Unless your goal is to play an expansion 10 times then list the expansion as the entry.

--For expansions that can be played on their own as well as games in a series that can be mixed, you have two options:
1. List them as separate games, count their plays separately.
2. List them together as one game, count their plays together.

--Any games in a series that cannot be combined count as their own game. For example, the Tempest line of games are distinctly different, even though they are in a series.

--Feel free to play your games in any order that you like. You don't have to start with #1 and play all 10 games before going to #2. Unless that is how you want to do it.

--Role-playing games count. Each session counts as a play. So if you meet 10 times, that's 10 plays.

--For games that have scenarios, playing through a scenario counts as a play.

--Since a war game scenario can last hours, much longer than most board games, a play is counted for at least a two-hour block of time. It is up to each person to decide what a play means to them because this is a personal challenge, so you can make a play of a war game a longer period of time, up to a completed scenario.

--Online/digital games count regardless if you are playing against a person or the computer AI. The digital and physical games have to have the same rules (thus the same components) It also must have the same name as the original. It can't be a differently named game with similar game-play. "Normal" video games do not count for this challenge.

--Solo play counts.

--CCGs/LCGs count as they're tabletop games. Anything classified as a tabletop game counts for this challenge.

--If you participated in the challenge in the past, feel free to include any games you played then in this year's challenge. It's a new year, a new start.

*Normal Challenge*

2020 didn't go how anyone could have predicted. While I did manage to finish a normal challenge, it was right at the end of the year. So I'm going to try a normal challenge again in 2021 and see what happens. Who knows, maybe I will, maybe I won't.

Many thanks to Sarah for setting up this fun challenge again!



Like Sarah, and many other gamers, my 2020 plans were completely upended. I do typically finish a normal, casual 10x10 most years with repeated plays of our weeknight standbys (games like Splendor, Sagrada, Don Quixote, Karuba, Azul, Kokoro, Cartographers, Wit's End, Gizmos, and Wingspan).

I'll take some time between now and the new year to contemplate also attempting a hardcore list this year!

Failed my challenge last year (after 2 successes the years before), and mostly for two reasons: Corona and AH: The Card Game. So I will put the LCG onto my list this year, to make it a bit easier. (I still want to play the missing games from last year in addition.) To spice it up, I will only include games with "Return to:" box content, and I won't buy the next "Return to" box, likely to be released some time this year, before completing this part of the challenge. I do my first true revisit to a previous challenge (2018) and include "The Great Zimbabwe" again, because it is among my very favourite games, but I have hardly played it since this challenge, so I want to put a little more inclination to get this to the table more regularly again. "Spyrum" is kind of a trade off for "Indonesia". A gaming pal, agreed to be into the later, if I put the former onto the list as well. "GIPF" and "YINSH" are in my collection for quite some time, and I hardly played "GIPF" and "YINSH" not at all. They are options, to make the challenge a bit easier for me this year, while still provide the option to play something that rewards multiple plays in short succession. I thought, why not finish the list then with an abstract classic, I have not played in ages. As replacement game, I add "Mage Knight" again, which had been on my list in 2019, and hit the table fairly frequently 2020 as well, so it should be an easy replacement. As usual, I won't count solo games to my challenge, although I played quite a bit of "Mage Knight" and AH:LCG solo this year, conditioned by Covid-19.

1) Arkham Horror: The Card Game (incl. "Return to" expansions)

I will be doing the Normal Challenge.

Progress: 41%

Although not new to board gaming, I am fairly new to solo gaming, so I am looking forward to tackling this challenge for the first time.

The only game that could change is Destinies, if there are significant delays with the delivery of the KS. Or if I unexpectedly receive another KS earlier than anticipated (looking at you, Chronicles of Drunagor!).

Edit: Got LotR:JiME for Christmas, so I swapped out Thunderstone Quest for that.

Happy gaming everyone!
