The 2015 open-to-all "100 games x 1" challenge -- Exploring Diversity
You can now join us in the 2016 challenge: The "100 games x 1" challenge 2016 -- Exploring diversity 2
- There is the "play at least one game a day during a hectic month" challenge: An Advent of Christmas Gaming Challenge - 2014
- There is the "play one game a hundred times" challenge: The 100 Play Challenge: In Support of Deeper Exploration of Games (Update: Now with GeekGold!)
- There is the "play ten games ten times each" challenge: 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each
We had an absolute blast doing the first one in 2013 and in 2014. We have a great respect for the contestants in the other two.
But we give ourselves another challenge for 2015, and we invite all those interested to hop aboard and share with us their progress. It is a challenge for the cultists of the new, for those who have too many unplayed games, for those who want to take their games "out of the dust", or for those who like to sample what the gaming world has to offer.
MAJOR EDIT (seeing how things go, what follows was rewrote after the start of the challenge)
1. Create an entry to represent yourself.
2. Post a short comment about your goal (or create a link toward a geeklist, if you want to have your own corner of the 'geek).
3. Post game titles as you play them (or update once a month, or when you can).
4. If you feel like it, rate the game in the database (or update your rating, if need be).
The point is to play a hundred different games between January 1st and December 31st, 2015.
Just to be clear, we are not talking about 100 plays, but about 100 different titles.
Some additional guidelines:
1. Have fun.
2. The first guideline is more important than what follows. If you hesitate about joining in, adapt the challenge to your reality. This is not an officially-sanctioned event.
3. Games can be from your collection, from a friend's collection, from your gaming group, from a convention: whatever suits you.
4. We will only count face-to-face physical games; you can count the electronic version of board/card/dice games (but this is not a video game challenge). The physical version and the electronic version of the same title count as one game.
5. Solo play counts. But do not count as two titles the solo variant and the regular play of the same game.
6. You are the judge to decide if you consider as one or two different games a base game and its standalone expansion, or two editions of a game that was rebooted.
7. With a different play each day, any dedicated gamer could finish a 10x10 challenge, a 1x100 challenge or a 100x1 challenge by the start of April. If the challenge is too easy for you, you can raise the bar. More games or less time are obvious ways to do this. Contestants have very interesting and original ideas. Look them up in the different entries of this geeklist!
It is the first time we are doing this. Please feel free to comment, and to offer advice. We hope you will join us on our adventure. Have fun, and keep gaming, and gaming, and gaming!
