End-of-Year Statistics and 2018 Goals

2017 has closed on us, and already my subscription box is flooding with other users doing recaps for 2017. I missed my November recap, having lost the motivation to dedicate the incredible amount of time it took to construct that recap and add in all the links. The latter is really the part that bogs things down, and so I’ll opt to skip that in here, but those who have been watching will know my wife had led all year in win/loss record for our head-to-head gaming. And that October saw me finally get even with her. How did the final two months shake things up? And did I pull up over 50% on my solo victories?

2017 Solo Record: 64/121 (52.89%)

So there you have it, I accomplished both of my goals for 2017 by having a 50% win record in solo games and a 50% record or better in 2-player games with my wife. In her defense, had our gaming not dropped a lot in the past two months I am certain she would have thumped me. Did she really win all three games of Kingdom Builder we played in the last two months? I need to fix that…

And so here are the things I am hoping to accomplish in 2018:

 Play all of our owned games (69 games)
 Play all of my soloable games solo (23 games)
 Eliminate my shame pile of unplayed games (10 games)
 Complete my 10×10 (Charterstone, Android: Netrunner, Kingdom Builder, 878: Vikings – Invasions of England, Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, Scythe, Mystic Vale, Seasons, Innovation, Albion’s Legacy)
 Play 50 new-to-me unowned games
 Complete the Charterstone campaign
 Play all soloable print and play games (20 games)
 Find and print a new solo print and play game each month
 Beat all Lord of the Rings: The Card Game quests that I own/will own (24 quests)
 Purchase the Adventure Packs to complete the two cycles in Lord of the Rings that I’ve started (10 packs)
 Purchase no new games in 2018 (two exceptions, one game as a reward for hitting a weight goal, one for completing my 10×10. Expansions/add-ons do not count but will remain limited in purchase)
 Keep a better log of plays!


So how about you? What are some of your 2018 goals?

One thought on “End-of-Year Statistics and 2018 Goals

  1. Congrats on achieving your goals! My wife has much higher win percentages in just about every game we play. I think it might be because she’s German – it’s in her blood!

    I’ve got a 10×10, but I’m letting the BG Stats app auto-fill with whatever games I play the most, and I also followed someone else I saw on Facebook and started a challenge to get to 356 plays in a year, basically equivalent of one per day.

    2017 I had 278 plays with 44 games (76 plays from Dominion). So obviously I’m hoping to play more games. Hopefully one kids grow up just a little more I’ll be able to get a regular gaming group going and that should boost those stats a bit.

    My wife would probably like if I set a goal of not buying new games, but she also knows how much playing games means to me and how much better it is for us to spend time together rather than watching TV or movies.

    Plus, there’s still a few gaps in game mechanics I’d like to fill, including worker placement, legacy/campaign, and maybe some things like pick up and deliver or more drafting games.
