A Challenge!

Over at The Stronghold Rebuilt, Kaptain Kobold has put forth a challenge for 2017 to play more games. Here is a copy of that challenge:
The Six by Six Challenge 2017
(i) Select a list of Six games. These can be miniature, card, board or role-playing games. You may change entries on the list during the year, but game-plays for games you drop should no longer count towards the challenge.
(ii) To start the challenge, post the link to your blog. 
(iii) You commit to play each of  your six chosen games at least six times during the course of 2017. 
(iv) When you play a game in your challenge list, record the play in your blog. This record can range from a one line acknowledgment to a full blow-by-blow report. 
(v) If you've done it right, at the end of the year you should have at least thirty-six game sessions recorded. 
If you do decide to take part (and there's no reason you can't dive in at any point during the year), then drop me a note in the comments, with a link to your blog, and I'll set up a post listing everyone so we can all follow your progress. 
Let's get out there and Play!
I haven't decided if I'm going to do it yet. That would equal 36 games, which is a lot for me. I'm not sure if I can do it. Still, I'm thinking of giving it a try. I'll ponder it over the next week, although I am already thinking of which games to play. I have a tentative list.
  • I would have to play some miniature games using my rules. Per Morschauser, there are only 3 periods (shock, musket, and modern). Those could be 3 of the 6. I'm not sure, however, that I would be able to do 6 games for all 3 periods.
  • I'm also thinking of a couple quicker games to fill in the gaps. Four Against Darkness and my sci-fi skirmish rules are 2 possibilities.
  • My wife and I also play board games regularly. I could include some of our favorites. Perhaps Ticket to Ride or Takenoko. Recently, we bought DC Rivals: Batman vs. Joker and my wife really enjoys it. That could be another.
Anyway, I still need to think about doing it.

  1. I did think of you when I set up the challenge, as someone who sometimes struggles to fit in games :) That's why it's only 36 rather than 50 (my original concept). And it can cover board- games and card games too, and I know you fit in a few of those during the year.

    Give it a go :)
