Boardgame Apps are now nearly as frequent as the physical copies, with their digital boxes adorning our phone spaces. For some, these apps are a cheaper alternative to acquiring the physical copy, allowing for faster setup and learning on-the-go. For others, the app is complimentary to their existing physical copy, and, at times, totally eclipses physical play altogether.
Recently, however, I've felt a new effect - actually wanting to get or play the physical game.

[We now return you to the re-broadcast of the 2016 Willie Awards already in progress.]
*Rips open envelope*...THE CASTLES OF BURGUNDY: THE CARD GAME!
Since they're out at this time, I'd like to accept this award and say a few words on behalf of this game.

I've earnestly tried to focus my board gaming towards completing my solo challenges before the year's end. Sure, there are other games I play that are not on my list, but overall I want to steer towards the plays that will count. But as I get the plays in, I'd sometimes throw in a couple more on the same night, just for quantity's sake. And the reception's been...lukewarm?

A third of 2017 has already zoomed past, and it's been more than 120 days since I started those two challenges for myself - the 10x10 Solo Dice Chuckers and 10x1 Solo Heavy Games! Where do I stand in both?

Until recently, I've dismissed the 10x10 Challenge. It was hard enough for me to gather people to play a game, let alone play it 10 times within the year. But I looked at it all wrong. If 2016 was any indicator, I clearly played a lot more solo games. So, it'd make more sense to make a solo 10x10 Challenge for myself. HECK, WHY NOT MAKE TWO?? Well, not exactly...but thanks to the BGStats App (they did NOT pay me to say this), issuing a challenge or two is as simple as tapping a screeWHOA I DIDN'T MEAN TO LAUNCH THAT STOP STOP THIS NO-
