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.

There was perhaps no specific picture rather then the teaser trailer that made me wet my pants about this game.
Absolutely stunning art and a übercool theme. Still unplayed though.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Asmodee still churn out great looking games, one of my favs is Fire & Axe, and probably my favorite board.

That lion is absolutely majestic. After seeing the image hundreds of times, my eye is still caught by it every time.

You can see him negotiating treaties, engaging in diplomatic relations, threatening dire consequences if demands are not met.

Probably my favorite box art, and a great game, besides.

This was my second or third Euro-game purchase, and the images of the bits on the back of the box sold me. Getting it home and playing it was even better.







It remains one of my favorite games.

I believe this was the first Euro-game I ever bought, and although our group doesn't play it these days, it remains one of my favorites game.





The game is even better when The Black Rose expansion is added.

I'm a sucker for nice maps .. This map as well as those nice chits made me buy this game ..

Read halfway through the rules .. thought: WTF?? Didn't get along with the game at all ..

Well .. maybe I'm going to get me a frame for this map, so I might use it as decoration in one of my rooms ..

My first M:TG deck included artwork from Richard Kane Ferguson - IMO an outstanding artist. So I bought more and more only to get cards with pictures from this genius.

See for yourselves:
