Happy holidays everyone! Dicember is back this year... are you ready?

The goal is simple - play 15 (or more) different dice games during the month of December.


To Participate
* Create a new item in this GeekList (it can link to your own personal GeekList for the challenge, or just use the entry here to keep track).
* Post a short entry about the challenge and anything else you would like to add.
* Keep your list updated as you play dice games and come close to (or complete!) the challenge.
* Have fun!


What counts as a dice game?
A good rule of thumb is any game that uses dice as a primary game component. Use your own judgement.


Why 15 games?
With the holiday season, asking for a game each day is unrealistic for many people, and since the number twelve is already associated with the month (12 Days of Christmas, etcetera) it seemed like a good number to pick twelve was too easy last year I raised it to 15. devil


Rules/Clarifications
1. Only plays from December 1st - December 31st of this year count.
1. Games do not have to be from your own collection.
2. Solo plays are allowed.
3. Digital/iOS versions (as long as they are the same as a physical game) count as well.
4. Plays cannot overlap with plays in other challenges, but the games can (that is, you can play the same game you already counted in another challenge, but you will have to play it again).


Microbadges (A very special shoutout to BGG admin Kattvippa for handing out these microbadges!)
If you want to participate, start an item on this GeekList and list your games - a microbadge is available for purchase: Microbadge: Dicember Challenge participant.

Those who complete the challenge will, in addition, get a special microbadge for 2016: Microbadge: 2016 Dicember Challenge completionist - please message me with a link to your GeekList item to recieve your microbadge.

Lastly, whoever plays the most games for this challenge gets any tips to this GeekList. Enjoy the challenge!


The Finish Line (and other shout outs)

I'll begin by listing all the dice games that I play, and then I'll make a separate list of which ones actually count—I won't always know at the time because my 16x16 list isn't completely settled.

Dice Games Played
1. 6x Flash Point: Fire Rescue - phew, finally one that counts
2. To Court the King
3. 3x Merchants and Marauders - almost certain not to count
4. Martian Dice
5. Tiny Epic Galaxies - may or may not count
6. 4x Roll for the Galaxy - game #4 counts
7. 2x Shadow Hunters - almost certain to count, though I can't say I'd be sad if we ended up playing this enough for the 16x16 instead
8. 2x Yahtzee
9. 3x Mickey Mouse Yahtzee (Yahtzee Jr.)
10. Abandon Ship
11. Dead of Winter
12. Farkle
13. Skyline
14. Machi Koro
15. Discoveries
16. Bang! The Dice Game
17. 2x Wool Rules

Plays that Count
1. To Court the King
2. Martian Dice
3. Flash Point: Fire Rescue
4. Shadow Hunters
5. Yahtzee
6. Mickey Mouse Yahtzee (Yahtzee Jr.)
7. Abandon Ship
8. Dead of Winter
9. Farkle
10. Skyline
11. Machi Koro
12. Roll for the Galaxy
13. Discoveries
14. Bang! The Dice Game
15. Wool Rules

For the Record: Last Year's Plays
Tiny Epic Galaxies
Martian Dice
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
To Court the King
Skyline
D-Day Dice
Flip
Elder Sign
Yahtzee
Roll for the Galaxy
Abandon Ship
Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age

(Ugh, it somehow just registered that it was only 12 last year and the number has increased dramatically! Put me on the record as saying that this challenge is *not* easy, because it's one of the only ones I know where you can't cross-count plays with other challenges. Just keeping track of which plays count is challenge enough....)

Other Ideas
Flash Point - we're already planning to play this 5 times for our 16x16 challenge, so what's one more?
Seasons - as above, we're already planning to play this 6 times for our 16x16 challenge, so we might possibly fit in one more
Bang! The Dice Game - we recently bought an expansion for this one, so we should try it at least once
La Granja - a newly-arrived game that Mark has been wanting to play

In retrospect, I think our chances of completing this challenge are pretty slim. We already have 17 plays remaining for our hardcore 10x10, and 53 plays remaining for our 16x16, with only a couple of overlaps there. But that's what vacation time is for, right? I logged 85 plays last December, so it's not completely hopeless.

Done! Around 11pm on New Year's Eve

Sorry I'm late to the party- didn't see this list until it showed up on the metalist...

But I'm in! College Bowl Season starts tomorrow (from when I'm typing this) and it's time to simulate those bowls by rolling dice! (Yes, I know only one counts, but I've got plenty of dice games to back this up!!!)

Many of my plays appear on the SGOYT list at: Solitaire Games on Your Table - December 2016, but will also appear on my own journal/geeklist: Govmiller's Daily Games of 2016.

I'll keep my running total here just to be on the up and up...!

Time to get rollin'!!!

Dec 12: Tiny Epic Galaxies and Dungeon Roll.
Dec 16: GoLong Football Dice Game, GOLO, GoHoops Basketball Dice Game, Go 500 Racing Dice Game, Bowling Dice, Catan Dice Game
Dec 17: Nations: The Dice Game, Firefly: Shiny Dice
Dec 18: Reiner Knizia's Decathlon
Dec 19: Dice City: By Royal Decree, In Security
Dec 20: Zombie Dice (actually this variant: SOLO RULES: Escape form Pleasantville!)
Dec 21: Escape: The Curse of the Temple (actually this variant: Solo-only Tile Timer)
-->AND DONE!!!!!<--

Dec 24: Eight Epics
