Board game resolutions – 2017

Acquisitions 24

This is extremely important as i am addicted to online shopping. There’s no way i can stick to zero (0) acquisitions for an entire year so the goal will be 24, which is 2 per month.

Unplayed owned games 35-45

I have 70 as at 1 January 2017. Aiming for 0 unplayed in 2017 will prove difficult, even impossible. Also it will clash with the Fifty by Fifty target (see below).

A more reasonable target i believe is to reduce that number to between 35-45 by the end of the year. This should help with the reduction of the number of acquisitions over the year.

Collection 160-170

The collection is 226 games excluding expansions. The long term aim is to have half as many but for the year 2017 i’d like to be between 160-170 which means disposing at least 80 games considering that i stick to the 24 acquisitions target.

Long Term Resolution -> Fifty by Fifty project

“H-Index” is X games you’ve played X times e.g if you have played 10 games 10+ times but haven’t played 11 games 11+ times then your H-Index is 10.

Playing fewer games more times is something i’ve been wanting to do for the past couple of years. This will give me a target and  a record my progress.

My goal is 50 i.e. play 50 games 50+ times each.

At this time my H-Index is 19.

A steady stream of games going out. The problem is my acquisitions.
