Change from 2017:
The challenge has been changed to a self-moderated challenge. MicroBadges will no longer be awarded. They will be available for purchase sometime after June 2018 and will be linked below once available.


Goal of the Challenge:
As a counterpoint to the Cult of the New, this challenge encourages people to play each game several times to explore and experience them in depth. There is no rush to find the optimum strategy on your first play, or read all of the cards beforehand. Instead, each play reveals something more and something different, you get to try various strategies, and everyone's strategies evolve with their understanding and learning of the game. If you are tired of constantly learning new rules when running after the latest hotness, never really learning various strategies to any game, and needing to relearn the rules of old games because it's been too long since they were played, this is the challenge for you.

Previous Year's Challenges
2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2016 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
2017 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each

The Challenge: Play 10 games 10 times each in 2018
-Anyone can join at any time in 2018.
-There are 2 versions of the Challenge, Normal & Hardcore, which will be explained below.

Note 1: All Normal and Hardcore lists are separate challenges, so a single play can appear in only one list. You can include a game on more than one list, and even have the exact same list for both Normal and Hardcore challenges, but you'd need to have 10 plays for each list the game appears in.
The key difference with the Hardcore challenge is that you are not allowed to change your mind on the 11 games once you have created the list. However, you can downgrade your Hardcore list to a Normal list and freely change listed games. You could even start a new Hardcore list, but you could only include plays done after creation of the new Hardcore list.

Note 2: If you want to do both a Normal and Hardcore challenge, you may put both lists into one entry. Just make sure to add a comment with your Hardcore list.

How to join the Normal Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Normal Challenge and then write down your ten games, if you've decided. You do not have to decide your 10 games ahead of time. You could even wait until you've finished playing 10 games 10 times each before posting to the challenge.
3. You may swap out games as you like. As long as you play 10 game 10 times by the end of 2018, you've succeeded at the challenge.
4. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
5. You may include any plays that happened in 2018, even if they were before you joined the challenge.
6. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, you may purchase the Normal MicroBadge, which will be available sometime after June 2018 and will be linked below once available.

How to join the Hardcore Challenge:
1. Add an item to the geeklist, either a game from your list or create your own Geeklist and enter its ID.
2. In the text field for the item, indicate in big bold letters that you are doing the Hardcore Challenge and then write down your ten games including one alternate.
3. Comment on your item and copy the list of 11 games into it.
4. To complete the challenge, you must play 10 of the 11 games you've specified at least 10 times. You may not swap in/out any other games.
5. For each game, use whatever method you like for tracking the 10 plays.
6. You may not include any plays that happened before you joined the challenge.
7. When you have completed the challenge, played your 10 games 10 times, you may purchase the Hardcore MicroBadge, which will be available sometime after June 2018 and will be linked below once available.

Courtesy of Miche, should you have failed a 10x10 Challenge at any point, you can buy this Microbadge: mb

Don't have the GeekGold?: Anyone who has completed the challenge, but can't afford the badge or has very little GeekGold, please post here: 2018 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each discussion and ask for help.

Details of what does and does not count:
--If you play a game multiple times in a row, each completed game counts as a play. Partial games do not count, but can be added together to count as whole games.

--Feel free to include expansions in your games. It is suggested that when playing expansions that cannot be played on their own, list the entry under the main game. No need to specify the expansions used at any point. Unless your goal is to play an expansion 10 times then list the expansion as the entry.

--For expansions that can be played on their own as well as games in a series that can be mixed, you have two options:
1. List them as separate games, count their plays separately.
2. List them together as one game, count their plays together.

--Any games in a series that cannot be combined count as their own game. For example, the Tempest line of games are distinctly different, even though they are in a series.

--Feel free to play your games in any order that you like. You don't have to start with #1 and play all 10 games before going to #2. Unless that is how you want to do it.

--Role-playing games count. Each session counts as a play. So if you meet 10 times, that's 10 plays.

--For games that have scenarios, playing through a scenario counts as a play.

--Since a war game scenario can last hours, much longer than most board games, a play is counted for at least a two-hour block of time. It is up to each person to decide what a play means to them because this is a personal challenge, so you can make a play of a war game a longer period of time, up to a completed scenario.

--Online/digital games count regardless if you are playing against a person or the computer AI. The digital and physical games have to have the same rules (thus the same components) It also must have the same name as the original. It can't be a differently named game with similar game-play. "Normal" video games do not count for this challenge.

--Solo play counts.

--CCGs/LCGs count as they're tabletop games. Anything classified as a tabletop game counts for this challenge.

--If you participated in the challenge in the past, feel free to include any games you played then in this year's challenge. It's a new year, a new start.

NORMAL CHALLENGE.


My first time doing this. Gonna try comparing some similar games and see if anything needs traded off after 10 playthroughs!

Mage Knight
VS! Gloom Haven

(The matchup for 2018 right?)

The Third World war
VS! Next War: Poland

(these two portray the same battle, surely I don't need both right?)

Arkham Horror TCG
VS! Eldritch Horror

(having not played AHTCG not sure if this will scratch the same itch as EH, but will find out!)

D-Day at Omaha Beach
VS! Enemy Action Ardennes
VS! Fields of Fire

(do I REALLY need three solo wargames or do they fill different gaps for me?)

Android
VS! Shelf Space
(been carrying this one around a LONG time, time to put its feet to the fire!)



1. Mage Knight Board Game

2. Gloomhaven

3. Android
(this one I have wanted to do for a long time using the unoffical solo rules)

4. Arkham Horror: The Card Game

5. Eldritch Horror

6. D-Day at Omaha Beach

7. Fields of Fire

8. Enemy Action: Ardennes

9. The Third World War

10. Next War: Poland


Thanks for the editing tips.

I'll be doing the hardcore challenge this year, which I plan to track both on here as on my blog. The games I've chosen:

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2


Arkham horror the card game


Azul


Lisboa


Heaven & Ale


Ex Libris


Mythic Battles: Pantheon


Majesty: For the Realm


Favelas


Clans of Caledonia


and as an alternate (mainly because I haven't played yet:

Dinosaur Island


I've mainly chosen games I'm really confident I'll be hitting 10 plays for. Pandemic we have to start still, but are automatically more then 10 plays. Arkham horror is my solo game of choice lately, so that's a no brainer as well. Azul, favelas and majesty are all games I play a lot and get to play with all my different groups. I added a couple of heavier games as well. Lisboa is in my opinion the best game from this year and I'm personally very impressed with Heaven and Ale as well. Clans, I've only played once before but really enjoyed so I guess it'll make it to the table enough times as well. Ex Libris is just plain fun.
Lastly I added Mythic battles to the list. I plan on playing a couple of the campaings with different opponents, so I think 10 plays should really be possible.

My alternate is something I'm not sure of yet, as I have yet to play. Love everything about it though, so I expect this will be a good pick to reach 10 games as well.

Wish me Luck

and her husband (who is not @ BGG). As you can see from their challenge, we share a lot of games and are planing to do these together.

(*) EDIT: Technical, 2018 is rather my second year, but the first year, I was attending for. As I reconstructed from my logged games of 2017 an entry for the Normal Challenge '17 on 12/22.
