New year, new categories to try and get perfect 10s in through this year. "Lacerian" refers to Ron (rocksnrolls) Lacer, who introduced me to the idea of a 10x10 made of categories instead of specific games.

Last year I scored 85% completion. Will I do better this year?

Note that although a single play may satisfy several categories, I can only count it for one. Also, unless otherwise specified, a category must contain unique games.

CURRENT STATUS: 78%

E-LEC-TRI-FY-ING

(Games played against AI on my iPad.)

I've bought a bunch of board game adaptations on the iPad. Some I have played asynchronously but many of them I have barely fired up. Why? Let's get some of them played. Should be easy, but I thought I'd knock out ten solo games easy last year.

STATUS: COMPLETED!

1. Suburbia (1/15)
2. Steam (3/24)
3. Through the Ages (3/27)
4. Neuroshima Hex (3/30)
5. Terraforming Mars (4/16)
6. Burgle Bros (4/20)
7. Twilight Struggle (4/21)
8. Shards of Infinity (5/6)
9. Small World (6/8)
10. Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (6/25)

GETTING YOUR KICKS

(Games I backed on Kickstarter.)

I kind of lost my mind in 2018 and backed a BUNCH of stuff (by my standards, at least) on KS. So far they've all been pretty good! Let's play ten of them this year. (I'll allow games I kickstarted in previous years, though there aren't as many. Also, any KS I back in 2019 that delivers in 2019 is allowed, assuming I back any.)

STATUS:

1. Imperius (1/25)
2. Xia: Legends of a Drift System (2/3)
3. Fire in the Library (3/3)
4. Q.E. (4/11)
5. Dual Powers: Revolution 1917 (5/28)

HASHTAG WINNING

(Solo victories.)

I don't pay any attention to how often I win games (it doesn't seem like that often), but what if I did? How quick can I rack up ten solo wins? Can I? ("Solo" here doesn't mean solo games, it means non-ties.)

2. The Bottle Imp (1/17)
3. Quantum (1/25)
4. Trade on the Tigris (1/27)

HEX-E-POO-HEX-ON-YOU!

(Ten different Neuroshima Hex factions.)

It's said that Native Americans introduced deliberate errors into their weavings so as not to offend the gods, for perfection is kept only for them. It is in that spirit that I offer up this quixotic entry. I couldn't get Steam played ten times with my group last year; how about a game even fewer of them like?? Still, you only need two to play and I have bought oh so many Neuroshima Hex factions, beloved reader. I gotta justify them.

STATUS:

1. Vegas (5/3, vs Sharrash and SMART)
2. Death Breath (6/4, vs Neojungle)
