A little light relative to a lot of these games, but still looks worth trying.

Hi, Sarah (and Friends who support you) - -

Thank you for hosting once again, and adding even more fun to this already-wonderful hobby! I plan to take on your Hardcore Challenge myself, and several others; all except (4) below in combination with Betsy. We'll record plays by either of us alone, but if we both play that's still only "1" play.

(1) 10x10 HARDCORE CHALLENGE in 2017 (along with several other Challenges I'll describe below). Here are my 11 games. As last year, I'll try to play all eleven at least eleven times each.:

20th Century Limited
Alhambra
Amerigo
At the Gates of Loyang
Blue Moon City
Castles of Mad King Ludwig
Cinque Terre
Concordia
Notre Dame
Quadropolis
Thurn and Taxis

51% complete


Also (2A) 100 x 1 Challenge This is an enhanced version of Daphne & Francois' idea, with the bar raised as they suggest: "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing HARD!" Chuck only is working on the 10x10 above, but Betsy and Chuck together are doing the following Challenges. If either of us plays a game, it counts; if both of us play together, it counts only once. Our 2017 Goal is to play at least:

100 games once each
80 of these 2 times
60 of these 3 times
40 of these 4 times
20 of these 5 times
... for a total of 300 plays. Here is our progress:

By April 30: 97 + 40 + 22 + 15 + 8 = 182
60% complete

And (2B) 100 Day Challenge at the same time. As they suggest, we'll play games on 100 different days during 2017. It will be a pleasure!

Days we played games:
22 in January: 2-15, 19-22, 25, 27, 30-31
19 in February: 1, 3-10, 16-23, 25, 28
21 in March: 1-3, 5-6, 8, 10-11, 13-15, 17, 20-22, 24, 26-27, 29-31
16 in April: 5, 7, 9-10, 12, 14-21, 25-26, 30
May: 1-7, 9-17, 19-22
98% complete


Also (2C) 1x100 Challenge. If Pandemic-Legacy Season 2 comes out, we’ll likely play it at least 100 times (though maybe not 260 like we did for Season 1 in 2016 ... but who knows?!). The game we've played most so far this year: Travel Blog 23


Plus (3) Off-the-Shelf Challenge that Sarah introduced a few years ago. Among the plays above, we want to open and learn and test-play these twenty games and expansions, most of which we got in 2016:

51st State
Airlines Europe
China Decent well-designed game, good instructions, but maybe a little attacking for us ... need to play a few times
Coal Baron
Costa Rica Nice to have a harder variant of Incan Gold
Cottage Garden Easy to learn and pretty, more forgiving than Patchwork, and plays with 3 & 4 as well.
CV
Dungeon Lords
Gold West Wonderful! The mancala-caused actions are better linked than in Trajan ... great game!
Lost Temple Love Letter in Line; not a terrible game but mostly short-term tactics versus strategy. Want our copy?
Marco Polo
Myrmes Hmmm ... a little futzy for us perhaps; too much cube counting to plan a single turn. But a nice theme ... we'll give it more chances.
Panamax Down-time & cat's-game grid-lock; we'll pass this one along.
Pandemic - Iberia Wonderful variant, even with only the pure water & RRs. At least as good as the original.
Pandemic - State of Emergency Yet more clever enhancements ... the animals are Big Fun!
Saint Malo Clever mechanics but the marker pens are messy; maybe this hurt the game's popularity. Real logs & coins and paper+pencil for other parts works better.
Scoville
Steam
Steam Works
Uchronia Certainly nothing to do with dinosaurs; similar to Glory to Rome ... need to play both more to decide

55% COMPLETE

PS: Other first-time plays of games we own:
Just Desserts
Land 6
Qubic
Tokaido - Crossroads
Xenoshyft
Yspahan
Zock 'n' Roll

(4) Basic ABC Challenge. Chuck will do a slightly-stiffer version, but not all the way to hardcore. I'll play only board games with multiple players and will play them in ABC order, but will also count them even if they overlap with my several other challenges.

Here is my progress:

Alhambra (1/6) Atlantic Star (2/20)
Blue Moon City (1/6) Bora Bora (2/21)
China (1/6) Costa Rica (2/22)
Dungeon Petz (1/7) Dominion (3/6)
El Grande (1/7) Elfenland (3/8)
Fields of Arle (1/7) Forbidden Desert (3/11)
Gold West (1/11) Goa (3/17)
Hansa Teutonica (1/13) Hick Hack in Gackelwack (3/21)
Isle of Skye (1/13) Ingenious (3/21)
Joraku (1/25) Jamaica (3/22)
Karuba (1/27) Kingsburg (3/24)
Las Vegas (1/27) Lost Temple (3/26)
Merkator (1/27) Myrmes (3/27)
Nations (2/1) Niagara (3/29)
Olympos (2/1) Ora et Labora (4/7)
Pizarro & Co. (2/5) Pandemic: The Cure (4/9)
Quadropolis (2/5) Qubic (4/12)
Ra (2/5) Race for the Galaxy (4/16)
Samurai (2/5) Saint Malo (4/21)
Travel Blog (2/6) Trajan (4/26)
Union Pacific (2/6) Uchronia (5/5)
VivaJava (2/8) Village (5/13)
Walnut Grove (2/10) World's Fair 1893 (5/15)
Xenoshyft (2/17)
Yspahan (2/18)
Zock 'n' Roll (2/18)

COMPLETE (2/18) ... but I might go through more times.


Finally (5) Hirsch-Index to 34. We played 30 games at least 30 times during the first five years (2012-2016) we recorded our plays on BGG. By the end of 2017 we intend to have played 34 games at least 34 times. Here's our progress:

H = 30 on January 1, 2017
H = 31 on April 7, 2017

50% Complete (out of 59 exactly-as-needed games)


Thank You to the many Gaming Friends who will help us complete these challenges!

Games That Stood The Test Of Time

20th Century Limited - 3 plays then, 9 plays since then - This cross between Ticket to Ride and Transamerica was a big hit with me and my wife. We played it regularly all throughout the year. d10-8Ed10-8

7 Wonders Duel - 1 play then, 5 plays since then - I've come down on the side of those that think this is an even better design than the original. So good. d10-7Ed10-9

The Voyages of Marco Polo - 1 play then, 3 plays since then - Learned it from a friend a year ago and eventually got my own copy. 2016 is going to go down as the Year of the Dice-Drafter for me. I just loved every design of that genre I played in the last year. d10-7Ed10-8

Dice City - 5 plays then, 11 plays since then - Another hit with my wife. We played it a lot early in the year and then a lot later in the year after I got all the expansions Black Friday weekend. d10-7Ed10-7

Ghostbusters: The Board Game - 3 plays then, 15 plays since then - My initial impression of this was correct a year ago. This is indeed the family dungeon crawler / campaign game I've been searching for. I under-ranked it a year ago, though, and it goes up for the consistent fun it's provided my family and me. It remains everything that I had wished Mice and Mystics had been but wasn't. I'm really looking forward to the Kickstarter sequel fulfillment later in 2017. I also ordered us the Kickstarter exclusives from the first Kickstarter as an add-on. d10-6Ed10-7


Games That Kind Of Stood The Test Of Time

Carcassonne: Star Wars - 2 plays then, 1 play since then - I picked this up a year ago because... why not? It's not the greatest Carcassonne spin-off, but it's got its good points. Got it to the table just once more, though. It will probably continue to see occasional play. d10-6Ed10-5


Games I Haven't Played Since But Want To

Rome: City of Marble - 4 plays then, 0 plays since then - The reception of others I taught this to a year ago was pretty average. No one hated it but no one has requested it since. I think this is because, while the game mechanics offer some interesting twists on area control, the experience as a whole is very abstract. I'm okay with that more than most of the people I tend to game with, so it's been a tough sell to get it back to the table. Still, I wouldn't mind doing so soon. d10-7Ed10-6

Saint Petersburg (second edition) - 1 play then, 0 plays since then - This was one of my Christmas games from a year ago. I had a very successful inaugural play with my wife, but we haven't played it since. It just got overshadowed by some other Christmas games. We'll have to see if we can schedule a play of it in the near future. d10-7Ed10-7

Java - 1 play then, 0 plays since then - I demoed the entire Mask trilogy for a Saturday afternoon a year ago. This one had a better reception than Mexica, but hasn't been requested since. It's a nother case of being overshadowed by newer games. I still need to teach my wife this one, so maybe it will be played again soon. d10-6Ed10-6

Mexica - 1 play then, 0 plays since then - I didn't think this one was as interesting as Java, but I'd still play it again given the opportunity. d10-6Ed10-5

Crosscheck - 1 play then, 0 plays since then - This might be the most interesting vintage word game I've played. But it's overly long. The next time I play, there are some house rules I'm going to implement. d10-5Ed10-5

Master Fox - 1 play then, 0 plays since then - This turned out to be a decent kids game, but not compelling again to inspire my son and I to play again since learning it a year ago. But I wouldn't turn down a game if he ever requests it again. d10-4Ed10-4


Games I Don't Need To Play Again

I wandered a bit and found a game of 20th Century Limited that was just getting set up. A Rio Grande expert taught the rules to me, Christopher and Brian. It is a train game, so each turn you can place up to 3 tracks, and you are working on either building regional lines, or taking lines what you have already built and selling them to another company, which removes your trains from the board so you have them available to build more tracks elsewhere. You don’t have enough trains to build all the tracks you need, so you can’t only do regional lines, or else you will run out. You need to go through the regional lines in order, so you start in the north east and generally move west from there. Christopher got off to a slightly slower start, and was having trouble with the fourth region out of eight, so he started focusing on doing more company line sales. With a couple more turns, he would have completed a large network that would have given him the most points, but Brian completed his eighth regional line, after I had been leading in those most of the way, so I ended with seven. He just edged me in the score, 148 to 141, with Christopher with 104 and his 50+ point company nearly done.

I enjoyed it so much that when someone showed some curiosity about the game as we were setting it back to the starting configuration, I offered to teach it to him and play again. So Zach and I played. We were neck and neck pretty much the whole time. I went first, so I was completing a line, and then he would. Then I took a little time to complete a company line and he started finishing regional lines before me. Later on I completed another one which gave me a bonus for completing 4 routes that contained Canadian cities. In the game, you randomly choose a bonus card from 3 different decks that apply to that game, so there is a lot of replayability that comes out of that. I built my eighth regional line first, and since everyone gets the same number of turns, he was able to finish his as well on his last turn. My bonus ended up being a good chunk of my margin of victory, 154-134. You also can use someone else’s track by paying them with an entry waiver token and you start the game with 4 of them. It is a closed economy, so if you never use someone’s track, you can hold on to them and stop others from sharing, or you can just turn around and share other one’s back when you need them.

We've just packed tentatively and have room for this one. We learned it at Origins 2015 and it's our Favorite Train Game.
