The 10x Challenge is a challenge to play 10 games 10 times in one year. It is intended to encourage playing a small set of games more deeply, rather than the current norm of playing a new game every week.

here’s my 2019 10x challemge

10x in 2020

These are 10 games I want to play 10 times in 2020.

  1. Through the Desert
  2. Pax Renaissance
  3. Pax Pamir
  4. New Frontiers
  5. Twice as Clever
  6. Spirit Island
  7. Terra Mystica
  8. Watergate
  9. City of the Big Shoulders
  10. 18Chesapeake (or 1889)


  1. Race for the Galaxy
  2. Age of Steam

This is a tentative list from 11/06/2019. Just played Age of Steam; it was amazing, tense, and plays in 2 hours.

  • Pax Ren and Pax Pamir I have a good shot at playing 10 times at GMT, especially simce they can often be played back to back in one night.
  • New Frontiers is quick (< 60m) and has many strategies, also many people have played RftG >100x.
  • Not sure if I should add TM or Gaia Project.
  • 18chesapeake is a guess? It’s an 18xx you can play a week night. 1889 could possibly substituted.


none yet. perfect foresight..
