This is an idea in order to get your friends/ BG-buddies together in your neighborhood and motivate them to participate in a Decathlon of Board Games Competition of your own.
Choose 10 games that your friends or BG-buddies would be willing to play for this event. The ratings do not matter in this case, just the popularity of them among you all. Try to choose games that are different from each other in theme and mechanics, so variety is enhanced. Select a prize of some sort like a free lunch, a game or some gadget. Each one will pitch in the pot an agreed amount of money to buy that prize beforehand.

Instructions:
In the list area input the top game or main attraction (more popular) you consider of the 10 selected games. In the comment area list the other 9 games with the Game ID # or the link to the BGG Database if possible (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/ “Game ID #). Do not include BGGImage’s as that would clutter the list too much.

I don’t expect good ratings for this list, for the amount of work you need to put in, and it looks more appealing to the hard-core gamers. This is an imaginary situation but if someone gets to realize it and want to publish the results that would be fantastic.

Note:
If there is a similar list or a journal on this already let me know in the comment area of the list. Thanks and have fun.

We try to have a monthly "BG-Thlon" to try the recent acquisitions. These titles were acquired during the last month and we'll try to play as many as we can in the next few weeks.
