This list is a list of member accomplishments as they attempt to fulfill their personal gaming goals of 2011. This list is open to any member of GRAB, past or present. I'll use the wiki page ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Grand_Rapids_Area_Boa...) as a guide.

Last year we had several members attempt to play their entire collections, and as far as I know only one managed to complete their goal.

Geeklist item should reflect the goal that you are attempting.

My goal for 2011 is to play every SdJ winner, including the winner of the award in 2011 also the Kennerspiel winner. If I am unable to find a game in Grand Rapids, I reserve the right to substitute another game by the same designer, if the designer didn't design any other game I can find I'll play something else nominated in the same year. I'll only do it as a last resort.

My goal is to play through every Memoir '44 scenario in the base game, the Terrain Pack, and the Eastern Front expansion. (These are the expansions I own.) I was going to do this chronologically, but I've already screwed that up by playing Pegasus Bridge first.

Alternate (additional?) resolution: Play this face-to-face.

I want to put a cube together and do some cube drafting games. It will have to be a 'best in my collection' cube as I can't afford to do a real power cube

My goal is to NOT play this in 2011. Or 2012. Or maybe ever.

I was one of those who failed to play my entire collection in 2010. I had previously failed to meet the same goal in 2009. However, I would like to point out that I would have had a better chance of success if my collection had not been constantly increasing!

However, for 2011, my game-related goal is to get a BGG avatar. Before you tell me it's a lame goal, consider that I haven't had one for almost two years.

Secondly I would like to play at least one game per week this year.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I've come up with a list of titles in my collection that I want to get played this year.
