Six by Six 2017 Challenge Happy New Year

Over at the Stronghold Rebuilt Blog I came across a great play the game challenge wherein you select six sets of rules or a game that you want to get onto your gaming table in the coming year.  I am very eager to throw my hat in the ring for this as it has been a current topic of conversation for my gaming group.  "What do you want to accomplish for the coming year?" is the way it starts and then there is the laundry list of "we need to get this out more often not just once every two or three years."

So in the spirit of prediction and best intentions I give you my six by six game challenge list. After each title I will count them like this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, Hot linking them to the games they count.

1. DBA: Monday night regulars in Lee's Summit Game night: 1 2 3 , 456  So the last two were tournaments at the Recruits Convention.

2. Blue Max: Already declared 2017 the year of the biplane in modeling and gaming. COUNT: 1

3. The Great War: got this for myself for Christmas with all the expansions even down to the Whippets.  Count: 1,  2.
The Great War Board Game

4. 54mm wargames:  My collection weeps for my attention.  12

5. Carrera GO Formula 1 season 6+ races.

6. Rogue Stars in 90mm Space Opera storyline on Khorigate COUNT: 1, 2,

So that's what I said on this last day of 2016.
In the new year I am ready to make wargaming Great Again!
Thanks for looking in and keeping up with my progress in the new year.

Happy New Year!


  1. I am also joining in on this challenge. I'm hoping this will encourage me to get some toy soldiers out more often. I can play 3 games a month right?

    Good luck. I look forward to reading about your progress.

  2. Thanks Sean,
    I am thinking DBA is a gimme. The others are all challenges. We play every Thursday but I have to share game set ups with three other GM's.

  3. Slot-car racing? Now that's something I never considered anyone doing. Excellent choice.

    1. Thanks Kaptain K. Our club has a long history of racing games and slot cars used to be a really big deal for us. F1 as an analog RPG.
