Alphabet Gaming Challenge

Post  Aneurin on Sun 08 Jan 2017, 22:11

So you've heard of the 10x10 or 5x5 gaming challenge; well this is something new, the Alphabet challenge.

Following a recent purchase of Yedo to complete my alphabet collection I now want to play through it. Not necessarily in order... but here is my list I want to get played this year.

Alchemists
Battle Star Galactica
Carson City / Cottage Garden
Dominant Species
El Grande
Five Tribes
GeistesBlitz
Heroes Wanted
Imperial Settlers
Junk Art
Kanban
Lewis & Clark
Mansions of Madness
Nostra City
Oregon
Pandemic
Quarantine
Redacted
Space Hulk
Tigris & Euphrates
Urban Sprawl
Viceroy
Western Town
X-wing
Yedo
Zombicide

So any takers for anything?

Junk Art for me too please! Also Mansions of Madness, which I've been wanting to try for a while, and GeistesBlitz, which I played for the first time yesterday and would love to try again.

I just looked at my own list and I'm just missing V and X. Wonder what I should get to fill the gaps? (Cue Kes telling me to buy X-Wing...)

Village and X-Com (or Xia legends of a drift system)

You obviously have to buy them right now to quell your OCD.

Viticulture. I can't respect a person who doesn't have Viticulture in their collection.

Viticulture is very tempting... I might wait until Charterstone comes out and see if I can save on postage.

And Xia for 'X' is also a good prospect. Has anyone ordered the expansion?

I have more of them than I expected. What do people have for Q and Z?

I'm surprised you don't have Viticulture Paulyg! Kes has ordered the expansion to Xia.

I used to own Valdora and Vikings as well. There was definitely a point when I had all of them. Now I'm way off.

Aneurin, don't you think you should also have a game starting with a number?

I've got* a copy of '#Hashtag - The Game of Hashtags' that I'll sell you for a very reasonable price, Aneurin.



(* - Can make out of some bits of spare card)

Tie strikers do look good!

I was considering adding 7 wonders as the number game. But this isn't a character challenge it's the alphabet challenge and last time I checked it wasn't 'abc defg hijk lmnop qrs tuv wx y and Z now I know my abcs won't you come and # me'

Oh I like that!
I accept the 2017 alphabet gaming challenge!
Pauly.... as I play99.99% of my games with you, am signing you up for it too


(NB I interpret the challenge as playing a game from each letter of the alphabet in 2017 - not playing every game on Aneurin's list, although some crossover would be ok)

Having rebuilt my game list I see I'm only missing U and X from my collection. I thought I was missing Z, but my copy of Go Cuckoo! is the German version Zum Kuckuck! Result!

However, given I already have 30 unplayed games in my collection, should I really add 2 more just to scratch the alphabet itch?
