Own 10 games or less that I used to play but which have been collecting dust for at least a year.

Original tally: 35
Current tally: 12


Own 10 games or less that I've never played.

Original tally: 17
Current tally: 15

Kinda, sorta close...

Don't suck at being a co-host on the radio show Of Dice and Men.

Depends on the episode, but overall I think it was a fun and successful first year.

I could have sworn I did the 2017 wrap-up post but it doesn't look like it's here so here it is now:

2017 was a very good year for gaming.  I had more plays of more games and more new games than ever before including some very good gaming experiences like Pandemic Legacy Season 1, fun times at PGX and PWYF, games played on the road on our solar eclipse trip, an interesting "2017 Advent Gaming Challenge" on BGG and a relaxing gaming weekend in Cypress Hills.

By the end of the year I had a...
49% winning ratio after
656 games played, of which there were
237 unique titles including
145 that I learned for the 1st time. It took
624 hours to play these games with
103 unique individuals at
15 different locations.

Other tidbits:
- I played at the 2-player count 37% of the time while 4-player is at 22%. 
- Saturday, Tuesday and Sunday are my busiest gaming days at 27%, 23% and 15% respectively. (Monday is at the bottom of the pile with 6% of my gaming time).

- My alphabet challenge was completed. (I could have easily done it twice if X had co-operated)
- My 25 X 5 was completed
- My 500 plays this year ended at 656
- My 150 "new to me" count came up 5 games short so this goal will likely be on the list again in 2018
- My "un-played games from 2016" goal was never completed and will be re-purposed for 2018!
- I added an Advent Gaming Challenge on Dec 1st (see my 2nd post of this thread or BGG for details) which I completed on Dec 24/17.
