One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to “play more game”, some games more than others. This list mostly serves as a way to keep track of my goals and my progress with them.

Feel free to comment, follow or even challenge me =).

Happy new year to all BoardGameGeeks!

1. Board Game: Advanced Squad Leader [Average Rating:7.98 Overall Rank:298] [Average Rating:7.98 Unranked]
Board Game: Advanced Squad Leader
This is my number one game for the last two years. Even though I don’t have any local opponents I still manage to get a lot of VASSAL games played.

Since I joined the VASLeage, and have a few regular opponents outside of the tournament. I’m hoping to get in one full scenario each month on average, and if I am lucky I get to go to at least one RL tournament for an additional 5 games for a total of 17. Therefore I will challenge myself to play 20.

Wish me good luck!

Progress: 5 Scenarios
ASL Scenario T6 The Dead of Winter(Win)
ASL Scenario T3 Ranger Stronghold (Loose)
ASL Scenario 14 Silence that Gun (Win)
ASL Scenario Commando Schenke (Win)
Czerniakov bridgehead (DNF)

2. Board Game: Android: Netrunner [Average Rating:7.88 Overall Rank:49]
Board Game: Android: Netrunner
This one is a great part of my somewhat newer LCG addiction. At the moment I have no more than one other local opponent, but I am aiming to recruit at least one or two new players from my local club.

Since my current opponent is in the process of becoming my next door neighbor combined with s short playing time I aim to get at least 10 games (or five matches) on average each month. More games are not totally unrealistic but this game is still new to me and I have to set the bar somewhere.

Goal for 2013: 120 Games (match counts as two)

Edit: 120 games is not going to happen. But if I apply myself and my opponent I can still make 60.
Progress: 9 Games

3. Board Game: The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game [Average Rating:7.64 Overall Rank:131] [Average Rating:7.64 Unranked]
Board Game: The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
Part two of my new found cardboard-cocaine addiction.

This game can be played solitaire, in pairs and in groups, giving this game a lot of opportunities to hit the table.

At the moment I´m setting the bar at 10 games on the average each month, for a total of 120 games.

4. Board Game: Mage Wars Arena [Average Rating:7.66 Overall Rank:229] [Average Rating:7.66 Unranked]
Board Game: Mage Wars Arena
Most games of Mage Wars will be against my girlfriend at home. We both love the game and are highly anticipating the first expansion early this year.

Since its release fall 2012 I have managed to get in 16 plays. I think 30 games in total for 2013 is a bit of a stretch, but what the hell.

Progress: 49played.
Win: 27
Loss: 23

5. Board Game: Dominion [Average Rating:7.63 Overall Rank:91] [Average Rating:7.63 Unranked]
Board Game: Dominion
I got hooked on this game last Easter holidays after owning the game "un played" for the better part of a year. One day I decided I really loved the game and could not stop thinking about it and ordered every single expansion except for alchemy and cornucopia. Then a few days later I broke down and ordered Alchemy also.

I have decided that if I will not buy cornucopia (or any other forthcoming expansion) unless I can get 60 games played this year(not counting online plays against AI).

Progress: 100 Games Played

Goal Reached!

6. Board Game: BattleLore [Average Rating:7.37 Overall Rank:341]
Board Game: BattleLore
I miss playing this one. My main opponent is also one of my best friends, but he has put some restraints on the amount of time he can spend on gaming lately so I guess I will have to find new recruits or force him to play more.

Setup time is also somewhat of a crutch with this game compared to the time it takes to play a scenario.

I´m aiming for 10 games in 2013. It can be done, and it can be beat, but not without pushing for it.

Everything I said about Battlelore is true about this one.

How does 10 games sound?

Board Game: Twilight Struggle
Again, my main(only) opponent for this game is my girlfriend. For this one I think I will not aim for a certain number of games, but instead to actually win it against her.

Progress: 2 Games played. 1 Win, 1 Loss

Goal Reached!!

9. RPG Item: Hellfrost Player's Guide [Average Rating:7.99 Overall Rank:661]
RPG Item: Hellfrost Player's Guide
I started a small Hellfrost campaign with a few friends after a friend of a friend moved to my town and needed an RPG group. I even managed to convert a non-role-player into the fold, and even though the game is new I have high hopes for this one.

Two sessions each month is the goal here, but to keep things realistic I´m predicting perhaps 15 games, more if my players keep up their good

Progress: 1 Session

10. RPG Item: Earthdawn Player's Guide [Average Rating:7.84 Overall Rank:1576]
RPG Item: Earthdawn Player's Guide
The original ED game was one of my first RPG loves as a kid. When shopping for Christmas presents this season a noticed that my FLGS (spillsjefen.no) had a copy of the 3rd edition players guide at a price that screamed "buy me!"

I’m not looking to start a full campaign while the Hellfrost campaign is still going strong but a few short one-shot games are doable.
Arbitrary goal: 3 games

Ps3 game I got for Christmas 2011. I hardly touched my console this last year, but it’s time to earn some new trophies and finish this game.

13. Video Game: Borderlands 2 [Average Rating:7.94 Overall Rank:91]
 Missing Image
This game is to awesome not to be played, even for someone like me that hates FPS games in general. I started this when it got out but got stuck after selling of a few crucial weapons I needed to finish a story mission.

Time to restart with a new character and finally save Roland.

Board Game: Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Limit for 2013: 5 Plays

Getting this game to hit the table is no hard task as it is one of my groups’ favorite games. Still I would actually prefer to play it less this year. Not because I´m was getting bored with it or anything but because it is actually stealing attention from some other great games such as....

Progress: 1 Game
