Well, it’s almost 13 hours into 2024, and I think it’s high time that a new thread is created.
Back when I was a CA (Community Advisor… often called a “Don”), I was told that it took one year to make a tradition and ten years to try and get rid of it. I don’t know if this is a tradition that any of you look forward to… but I do, and a bunch of y’all contribute every month, so I figure… what the hell, let’s keep it going.
So! Last year I completed ten plays of six games, and I think that may be my best year ever. Certainly my best since 2019 without question.
I’d like to keep that going. So, with that in mind, I’m going to create a new 10x10 challenge, and I am pledging to stop buying new board games until I have both played all the games I own at least once and I have purged… I’m going to say 30 titles from my collection. I have just too many big box games, and it’s just not sustainable in so many ways.
So! The new 10x10:
Star Wars Armada
Star Wars Legion
Twilight Imperium 4th Ed
Games I own that I haven’t played yet:
Vindication, Newspeak, Sidereal Confluence (plus expansion), The Undercity, New Salem, Dune Conquest, Frosthaven, Star Wars Shatterpoint, Catacombs Co-op/Red, Anomaly
Huh, ten of those as well. Well, we’ll have to give them a stab, hopefully in the next month or two. A few of them have been on my unplayed pile long enough that I may just turf them rather than opening them (I honestly have no idea when I got Anomaly, but it’s still in shrink and it’s not a game I would buy myself… so… gift? Maybe?).
And I’ll list the games I sell/give away as I do so.
Gonna be a busy, interesting 2024 when it comes to games!
Happy New Year everyone, and I look forward to seeing all of your challenges as you declare and update them over the year!
