10x10 - that's 100 games, one every 3.65 days. I'm not sure I'd commit to that right now. On the other hand, a 5x10 or 10x5 sounds both possible and worthwhile.

It sounds like a lot, but two games per weekend isn't really all that much, which might make you wonder why I made it sound like a lot.... nobody in my family other than me really *likes* playing board games. :(

I think the secret to any 10x10 is to focus on quick setup, 60-90 minute session type games. Otherwise it starts to feel too much like work.
Plus there are tons of missions for core space on the Battlesystems website.
