Here we are at the end of January - a month into the year and enough time has passed to ask the question: "What was the very first game you bought in 2007?" (Obviously it would be a short geeklist if started on New Years's Day!)

So, post here and be sure to tell something about it - was it planned or a bought spontaneously? Maybe you wish you bought something else. Played it yet? Popular with your gaming group, or a disappointment? Attacked by robotic nuns on the way out of the store?

1. Board Game: Shogun [Average Rating:7.62 Overall Rank:79]

Made a trip into a large game store with the intention of buying For Sale (after checking availability on the store's website), only to be told that it hasn't been in stock for ages. Saw Shogun on the shelf as I was walking out, and ended up buying it! Initial impression from setting it up and trying to learn the rules in a solo game was that it seems complex at first, but then remembering the rules becomes easier. The tower is TEH FUN! Planning a gaming day this coming weekend to give it a run.

Purchased with my first paycheck of 2007, even!
The hype on BGG stirred my interest in this one.

Haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I'm hoping for awesomeness. arrrh

I've been looking forward to this since it appeared on the P500. I'll also be looking forward to playing the full 7-player campaign for a while. I hope to jump into the 2-player quick start soon, but getting 7 players at the table for this will take a while.

Bought this and Power Grid Benelux/Central Europe.

My wife put a $30 limit on the purchase and because we were at the FLGS, made it hard to get much, and I needed the PG expansion .

She was actually spending more, getting a miniature's painting set.

Well, you could have asked me on January 1st, because I bought this game on the 1st. Sold it again today. I guess I am really past the Risk stage.

I own and like some of Pete Blockley's other game rules (especially Justified Ancients) and I'm a big fan of "operational" scale WWII rules. So, this was a no-brainer purchase when it was released just after the new year.

Technically, this was a trade, but it was the first new game I got this year.

First purchase was the Tanga special for Die Macher

Saw this on amazon for $29.99, and signed up for the Amazon Visa card to get this game for free with free shipping. So I guess I didn't really purchase it, but it's close enough.

Bought 3 Clone Strike starters from Tanga. I'm at least selling two on eBay, and maybe the third, depending on if I just want to keep one for the minis or not. I actually purchased with the intent to play, but I already have a ton of games that get no playtime.
