Games. I love them. You love them. Cats love them. Estonian women love them. Babies love them.

Sometimes we fall in love with them because of their intricate and beautiful gameplay. Sometimes we fall in love with them because of the 930 plastic miniatures that come with them.

But sometimes it's love at first sight.

This is a list to celebrate those games that have caught our attention with just ONE image here at BGG. The game may not even be out yet, or the game may actually be rubbish, but still that one image sent you utterly, head over heels, in gaming love.

Just look at that game box cover! That's a PROPER cover that is. Something I could have out on my table and random guests would ASK to play. Hummana.

Being a Christian fella myself I knew I had to get the game at that point. Bought it, played it a couple of times at conventions, glad I have it. I wouldn't want to play it all the time but from time to time and with the right crowd, it's funfun.

I know I'm cutting off my own nose to spite my face here because I'm on the website's "I want this game" list for when it can get fully printed but hey, the more the merrier. WOK STAR IS GONNA BE INCREDIBLE AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS BOX ART THEN YOUR INNER CHILD IS DEAD.

Multiplayer restaurant fun against the clock. Everything I've read, heard and seen makes me desire this. I hate all you Origins folk for buying all the available copies before I heard about the game.

This one did it for me. LWCs that actually represented crates of booze? Very "Untouchables" Little black trucks, great board night scene at speakeasies, Molded player pieces to look like gangsters with tommy guns, stills, :::Swooning:::

One of my first games I bought when I became a "gamer." I actually bought this while researching on BGG and one look at it and I was sold on components and thier contribution to the theme.

I owned this for about two years without ever playing it until recently at Origins 2010.

What a fantastic game, not just components but mechanics and fun. I do not know why this game isn't rated higher, and why eagle tries to give it away for $10 occassionally

This one:



Being a nut for nice game components, I saw this pic and was lost. Ordered it right away. Didn't trust my eyes when it arrived, it is HUGE and all parts are awesome (well maybe with the exception of the plastic discs). Can't say much about the gameplay yet unfortunately.

Then I wanted to play it at the Auryn 2010 con. When I wanted to pull it out of the car to set it up, I realized that stupid me forgot the cards and the rules on the nightstand at home where I read it the night before. crycrycry

Ever since then I am desperately seeking for an opportunity to play it for the first time.
