I can still easily put a plan together for you for 15k. I think the reason I didn't bother was because you weren't trying to come up with any money to buy new games. If you aren't committed, how can I be? Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I'm willing to put the effort/money in if you can help me.

I also decided to come up with a new goal for me this year. I was really thinking about what I could do and it finally hit me, since I have so many i started games why not go for a year long bean dive! Yes that's right, my new plan is to start one new game every day of this year and this will have to be retro active as well, I have started a few new games this year but being this is only day 6 I will either make up the games this weekend or extend the year long bean dive to the 5th of next year.

QQ: Do you have ability to boost yourself? How many controllers do you have available for a single console?

Anyone who knows me knows I care nothing about that, it's dead to me and I'd never recover anyway with as many games that have unachieveables that I have already started or are just too stupidly hard for me to waste what little sanity I have on.

I have a backloggery page which has every physical disc I own, but I also have quite a few digital/arcade games I don't list there.

You know. I'm going to make every effort to go (AF) this year, I'll make that a goal as well.. Just post as soon as we know the details. I'll start setting a little something aside for this.

Airfare, well, I have always driven...
I have a few goals id like to meet this gaming year.

150k gamerscore
Reach top 3 in Australia for gamerscore
Top 10 for site badges
Finally win my third straight GTASC

Not sure how many of those ill manage but should be interesting to reflect back in 12 months time.
I do have some legitimate goals for gaming in 2017, but, they are all tabletop related goals, and they are all in an effort to get me to go to game days, join in at tournaments at conventions, and maybe win some money for my Extra Life Hospital:

I am going to attempt to play:

100 unique tabletop games
100 new to me tabletop games (obviously, this one accomplishes the first one, if completed)
10 games 10 times each (a 10x10 challenge)
17 games 17 times each (a 17x17 challenge)

The most efficient use of my gaming time would require me to play 372 games during the year of 2017. (17 new to me games x 17 times = 289 games played + 83 additional new to me games = 372 total games played.) Of course, I have already screwed this efficiency up, as I have played a few games this year I have already played in previous years.

Dacoto has joined me in this, as well as two other friends, and we are tracking it in a guild forum I made.

Risk is a tabletop game. Wink

I've learned a few new games recently; both board and card. I could suggest a few if you're serious. Smile

@Kaens, I am sure not all of the games I end up playing will be ones y'all have not heard of. Also, some games will be "like Risk" - so, your wife isn't incorrect.
