I’ve been tracking my plays throughout the year on BGG. Some are solo challenges. Others are 10×10 – 10 games, 10 times. And another is 100 different games over the course of the year. I was also tracking all the games new or used that came in the door and which ones went out through a sale or a trade. The results are in…
I was no where near close on completing any of them except maybe tracking all the games in and out. This year has been awkward year for games in my house further stymied by my gaming group splitting up. Real life gets in the way far too often. Natalya desire to play games waned at the beginning of the year although recently she expressed an interest in playing more. I’m not a huge fan of the BGG game challenges. I think it can put you in the mindset of “OK, I need to play this game” or “I must play these three games this week.” I don’t like being in a situation where I have to play or must play anything — takes all the fun out of it.
I have a year end post that will include all the things I learned about gaming this year. One take away is I don’t think I will be doing any challenges in 2018. I will play what I want to play when I want to. And that’s it.
