#52GameChallenge for GJJ Games - 2017

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 237 different games, and many of those multiple times during multiple weeks.  So this year I'll try to out do that.

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 2016.  (I'll put a * next to games that were played with someone other than my kids and/or wife, and a + next to games my family played without me.)  Italicized games were played by me for the first time this year.  Bold 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|6 where the numbers are:

  1. The number of games played that week by my whole family.  
  2. The number of games I played that week.  
  3. The number of games I played for the first time ever (or at least since keeping track).
  4. The number of games I played for the first time this year.  
  5. The total number of games I've played for the first time ever this year.  (167 in 2016)
  6. The total number of games I played this year.  (237 in 2016)
I'll also track games my sons play in parentheses, in bold if it's their first time playing the game this year:
  1. Sam's plays this week.  
  2. Sam's games this week.  
  3. Sam's total games this year.
  4. Mike's plays this week.
  5. Mike's games this week.
  6. Mike's total games this year.
