F:AT's 2016 10 x 10 Quest to Kill the Cult: TALK THREAD 01 Dec 2015 13:26 #216300

This thread is dedicated to the DISCUSSION of the games played on the 10x10 Quest to Kill the Cult (fortressat.com/forum/15-games-catchall/1...est-to-kill-the-cult)

Feel free to post anything here about your game experiences during your personal quest to kill the cult. If you want to go really in-depth, I think it would be great if you were to go ahead and start a new thread so we can all ask questions and build our database of experiences.

Pete, would I be able to change or tweak my list if I realized I made a mistake or discovered a new game?

For instance, my ALT choice was Agricola that I would honestly be VERY surprised if I played even once next year. Say during xmas I acquire Pandemic Legacy and Caverna, would I be able to use one of those to replace Agricola. Or even use both to replace Agricola and something else on my list I'd be super surprised if I played even once this year (like Eclipse or Railroad Tycoon)?

Sure! I just don't want to end up having people changing it all the time to cover their new games, which would defeat the purpose LOL

but if you play TEN games of a new game then it's ok.

For instance, I've only played Eclipse once, so I'm totally part of the problem. Age of Steam is brand new and has been for years and I've never played it ONCE. I got Terra Mystica months ago and never played it. So I like your idea. Make me play these damn games. I gotta stop buying and acquiring stuff for no reason.

The only thing that will get in the way is that I made myself the same promise with my vidja games. I got a ton of them now and really want to force myself to play them next year.

I really can't participate in this list since of 20 games I own, only these are less than 10 plays:

Runewars
Steam
Ticket to Ride: Europe
Warhammer: Conquest
Band of Brothers Series

Maybe Survive too... But I seem too remember playing Survive a sick ton of times when introducing it to the group.

Most of them will hit 10 easy, except for Runewars...

Why no CCGs? I am intrigued as to why these are limited when other short-ish games are allowed.

Because much of CCGs are focused on collecting and keeping up, the antithesis of this project. This is for YOU so if you, in your heart of hearts, think that it's a legitimate game that you don't normally play 10 times in a year, go for it. Just keep in the spirit.

@Sevej: there's nothing stating you can't play a game you haven't played the shit out of already. Most of mine have at least 5 plays, but only plays now until next December counts.

It's not fair! Mumu got to put Magic and I didn't! Can I put Magic? I'll definately play that 10 times this year.

Also if I play an electronic version of Scrabble, can I put that?

Magic seems like cheating. You can rack up a few dozen games of that in just a few sessions. I didn't put that on my list but I know I'll hit 10 games of that easily.

THIS.

If you play Magic a lot, like you do Barney, then you're cheating the system and yourself. Do what you want, I'm not going to be a cop here. This is about playing your games and not buying a bunch of new ones, and ideally, playing games you wouldn't normally play.

But, if you want to be a l337 gam0rz and complete the 10x10 by wussing out and choosing a game you play all the time, and a short one which is generally played serially, at that, hey, do what makes you feel good.

Alright alright alright. If I don't make my 10x10 at the end of the year, I better not get grief if you're going to lavish praise on someone's completed grid that includes CCGs.

I cheated a little. I put two campaign games on mine that I expect to play heavily in 2016, and I also put Epic Duels on there, which I play a lot with my son.

But I made up for it by putting on two 3+ hour games (Le Havre and Fury of Dracula) that I want to play more. Overall I think I have a chance of making my goal with maybe half of them.

Me putting Eclipse on there is like trying to win the 50-meter dash wearing concrete shoes

There's no cheating anyone but yourself. I think playing campaigns are a great way to hit your targets

I completely understand the concept and intent of this challenge, but there is no way that I can pull it off. The average length of the games that I would likely list is probably going to average about 2 hours each, so that would be about 200 hours of gaming. If I played four hours a week and none of the other players brought any games, this might be possible, but realistically no.
