Happy New Year everyone! This challenge is to play 26 games each starting with a different letter of the (English) alphabet.

Last year cinderbike has graciously allowed me to host the semi-official challenge GeekList for 2017. I am back to host for 2018.

Basic Rules

- This challenge is for games played from January 1st - December 31st.
- Combining with other challenges (overlapping plays) is allowed for the regular challenge.
- Base games and their expansions count as a single play.
- Solo plays are allowed.
- Digital plays are allowed.


Hardcore Challenge Rules (Optional)

- Plays cannot overlap with other challenges
- Games must be played in alphabetical order (e.g. play #1 must start with 'A', play #2 'B' and so on for all 26 plays)
- Double (or triple) the challenge (52, 78 plays, or more)
- Challenge must be completed in a shorter time span (6 months, 26 days, etc.)
- Feel free to add your own variants.

... And above all, have fun! Have LOTS of fun!

There is a microbadge available for purchase:

tbd

As well as one for those who complete the challenge. Please PM me when you finish as these will be admin-awarded:

tbd


Want a more difficult / deeper challenge? Combine it with other challenges:

*will update at a less groggy time* I'll actually do this part... right?

I'm in again!

I'll start the year with a NORMAL challenge - since all my other challenges are ramping up right now too - but I may come back and go through the alphabet again with one of the hardcore variants later in the year.

Basic challenge. Last year I barely made it, playing the last game of Jaipur around midnight. This year I'll hopefully finish it sooner.
Btw, I played Checkers 190 times in 2017 :-)

- Only face to face plays - i.e. no online plays and no solo plays against computer opponent.
- Two plays - ideally by playing two different games.
- Time limit: Before end of june - i.e. before half of 2018 has passed. Ideally much faster.

Started 26th of March 2018.
