It's a new year, time to make and break some new goals!  You can check out last year's ideas and results here for those of you still playing along.
Let me know if you want to me to bring out a specific game: Game List

Some campaigns and Pandante. Not bad. Would the campaigns count as repeat plays towards the 15x5 goal?

(How long was Alchemists?  :lol )

Yeah, each game of a campaign game is one play. So I think Mechs Vs Minions has 10 levels/games, Pandemic is between 12-24. Can't remember what Krosmaster Quest has...
I think the last game of Alchemists was 3 hours, but I have it in the database as 2, so I either need to change it in the database for all plays, or disregard the discrepancy because of rules relearning.

Here's my Q1 update:

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

Original tally: 26
Current tally: 19

Even though I have been playing games less so far since moving back to Saskatoon, this one should be easy to complete.



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

Original tally: 15
Current tally: 16

I've moved in the wrong direction for this one so far but should be achievable.



A modified 5X5 challenge: Play five unique games by five unique designers

1. Reiner Knizia 4
2. Vlaada Chvátil 3
3. Wolfgang Kramer 3
4. Corey Koniecza 3
5. Eric Lang 2
6. Bruno Cathala 1

This one should be doable.  I have definitely had a good start with it.

Here's my Q3 update:

Original tally: 26

I have been playing games less so far since moving back to Saskatoon.  This one is still doable, but unlikely.



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

Original tally: 15
Current tally: 17

I've moved in the wrong direction for this one so far.  No longer realistically achievable.



A modified 5X5 challenge: Play five unique games by five unique designers

1. Corey Koniecza 5
2. Reiner Knizia 5
3. Vlaada Chvátil 4
4. Wolfgang Kramer 3
5. Eric Lang 3
6. Bruno Cathala 3

This one should still be doable if I strive for it.  The biggest obstacle (to this and my other goals) will be that I'll mostly be playing Gloomhaven the rest of the year.
