January has come and gone faster then I would have wanted. Gamingwise it was a reasonably good month for me with 48 games played and 12 games I’ve played for the first time. These are pretty good numbers for me, as I usually strive to play a game a day one avarage.
It was also the first month of my 10 x 10 challenge. Let’s take a little look at the graph:
To be completely honest, I don’t think I’ve done too well in the first month. I’m very happy with my multiple plays of broom service and codenames (even though that one feels a bit like a copout and might still change). It’s a shame I didn’t get to play Mombasa this month as well as Battlelore and Arcadia quest. Even though February is a relatively short month, I have some gaming plans that should help me stay on target.
When selecting the list of games for the 10 x 10 challenge, I intentionally left some heavier, longer games off the list. During the month I started thinking I could really use an incentive to play some heavier games more frequently as well, so that’s why I’ve decided to up the ante a bit and constructed a second list:
This second challenge started on 1-2-2016, which means I will only have 11 months to play these 5 titles 5 times each. I’ve chosen the following games:
- The Dilluvia project: One of the spielworkxx releases from 2015. I’ve not had time to play this one yet, because I’ve been struggling with the rules. A playthrough video has helped solve this though, so I should be good to go.
- Scythe: It’s not even out yet and will only be released around august/september. I still think I’ll manage 5 plays pretty easily
- The Gallerist: My favorite designer did not have a space on the other list, so I’m doubling up here. The gallerist was my favorite game of 2015, so I hope I’ll be able to play some more this year.
- CO2: And the other Vital Lacerda title on the list. I really like the way this game feels and I think it will be well liked by most of my gaming group.
- Trickerion: This game is a huge table hog. I probably will only play with 4 people during the monthly game day due to space constraints. I love the theme and look of this game though, so I have high hopes.

Take care guys and see you around.
