Once again, we have reach the arbitrarily designated point in our space-time to declare that one year has passed. While the astrophysicist in me feels obliged to point out (every year) that this is really somewhat meaningless… by the same token, it is nice to set goals and to check those goals periodically. And, hey, one circumnavigation of the closest fusion source is as good a period as any other!
Last year I did better than 2017, but still didn’t manage the full 10x10. But it did help focus me on trying to play games I already own and love, rather than buying new shinies every opportunity I had. As a result, I’m going to try and play the following games 10 times in 2019:
Game of Thrones 2nd Edition
Twilight Imperium 4th Edition
Star Trek Ascendancy
Level 7 Omega Protocol
Xia: Legends of a Drift System (Conditional)
Imperial Assault (Conditional)
I’m not including any of my wargames this year (Armada, Infinity, or WarMachine), since those are a different scale. I’m also intentionally picking longer, bigger games I love in the hopes of getting those to the table more often .
Lastly, you will note that this list actually includes 12 games, but 3 of them are listed as “Conditional”. Gen7 I haven’t played yet, but I’m hoping it will be good. Xia hasn’t arrived yet, but should shortly. And Imperial Assault currently requires me to paint a LOT of bad guys before I’d be really happy putting it on the table. So I’ll be dropping two of those as the year goes on, depending on arrival times/if it’s good.
As in previous years, I’d love for anyone/everyone to join me in this. I post once a month, and do my best to encourage anyone else who wants to try out the challenge!
Best of luck everyone, and Happy New Year!
