I like replaying games. I have plenty of games I love on my shelf and don't see the point of letting them sit there while I instead play some new hotness no one will be thinking about in three months.

Unfortunately it's tough to get the folks I play with to agree to play any one thng ten times in a year, except maybe Terraforming Mars. So a true 10 x 10 list would be an exercise in failure.

However, for 2017 my pal Ron (rocksnrolls) Lacer did an "alternative" 10 x 10 list that looked neat. So instead of committing to 10 specific games, I'll try 10 categories of games and plays.

Note that although a single play may satisfy several categories, I can only count it for one.

FINAL SCORE: 85% (B)

THAT'S SO LAST YEAR

(Games that were on my Best of 2017 list.)

For the past umpteen years I've been doing a yearly top ten or so of what was new to me. Too often there are items on there which I liked, but never get played again for some reason, even though they stood out. This is for revisiting (and maybe re-evaluating) them.

STATUS: COMPLETED!

1: Medici: The Card Game (#10) (1/13)
2: Fallout: The Board Game (#8) (1/24)
3: Escape From 100 Million BC (co-#1) (2/1)
4: Cobras (#6) (2/4)
5: Time Stories (#1) (2/10)
6: The Lost Expedition (co-#1) (2/17)
7: Crossing (#3) (3/4)
8: Roll Player (#5) (5/24)
9: Spirit Island (co-#1) (5/31)
10: Automania (#2) (9/9)
