10×10 in 2014 Tabletop Game Tally

There was a trending hashtag in the tabletop gaming twitter-verse at the beginning of 2014, #10x10in2014. The concept was driven by a feeling that with so many good tabletop games, gamers were jumping around from one game to another without really getting to know all the nuances of the games before moving on. The goal of the #10x10in2014 was to challenge gamers to play 10 games, 10 times in 2014. I haven’t seen much tracking on the hash-tag since early 2014, but I went ahead and tracked my gaming anyways, so here it is:

Total Games Played: 220, not including a handful of “traditional” games such as Monopoly and Life

Games Played 10 times: 9, though I came really close 10

The Game List (Ordered by Frequency)):

  • Star Wars LCG – 32
  • Fluxx (*) – 30
  • Carcassonne(*) – 23
  • Formula D – 19
  • Munchkin (*) – 18
  • Catan (*) – 12
  • King of Tokyo – 12
  • Escape – 10
  • Takenoko – 10
  • Forbidden (Island/Desert) – 9
  • Small World – 9
  • Castle Panic – 6
  • Munchkin Quest – 6
  • Dixit – 5
  • Star Wars X-Wing – 4
  • Mille Bornes – 3
  • Ticket to Ride (*) – 3
  • Qwirkle – 2
  • Blockus – 1
  • Hive – 1
  • Rory’s Story Cubes – 1
  • Rummikub – 1
  • Scrabble – 1
  • RPG – 1

A couple of things jump out at me regard this list:

  • My son definitely influenced the top 3
    • Star Wars LCG is one of his favorites when it’s just him and me
    • Carcassonne is one he tends to gravitate too when my wife is able to play as well
  • It’s really nice to have a few games that are almost guaranteed to take under 30 minutes, that everyone enjoys (son, daughter, wife, myself), and that can be played right before bedtime
    • Fluxx (we have 7 different versions)
    • King of Tokyo
    • Escape (just recently added to our library for Christmas)

I’ve already started my #10x10in2015 list with games of Carcassonne and Small World.
