#52GameChallenge for GJJ Games - 2019

This year I'll again be participating in the 52 Game Challenge, proposed by Southern Starr Games, where I try to play at least one tabletop game with my family and friends every week.  Last year I played 158 different games (down just a tad from 162 in 2017), and many of those multiple times during multiple weeks.

I challenge you to do the same with your family!  Just one game a week, where players are unplugged and interacting.  See how it changes your family for the better!  Post the games you play to Facebook or any other social media site with the hashtag #52GameChallenge

So here's a list of the games I've played each week throughout 2019.  Italicized games were played by me for the first time this year.  Bold Italic games are games I played for the very first time ever.  Each week I'll also list a series of numbers in the format of 1|2|3|4|5 where the numbers are:
  1. The number of games I played that week.  
  2. The number of games I played for the first time ever (or at least since keeping track).
  3. The number of games I played for the first time this year.  
  4. The total number of games I've played for the first time ever this year.  (95 in 2018)
  5. The total number of games I played this year.  (158 in 2018)
This year I won't be tracking my sons' plays. They've been playing games a lot more, independently with their friends, and it's been very difficult to track what they play. I am keeping track of who I play games with in the BG Stats app though, so I'll see there who I play with.
