There are entirely to many games for me to buy and try. I'll go bankrupt for a pile of cardboard and bits, but at least I could stay warm burning the ones I dislike.

So this is for my own reference to add games that I want to try playing, track my thoughts on the game and add the game to my buy/deny list.

I decided to add a verdict on games I get to play. It's really simple.
Buy = Purchase
Pass = Not purchasing but would play again
No Sale = Run away screaming

UPDATE:
I have neglected updating this list but honestly most of the new games introduced over the last year have not garnered my attention. Most of the new games seem like something I have played before.

I own this, but it has never hit the table. The ice flow pieces are blue acrylic and you can lure polar bears to block you opponents.

I knew there was a dice game I forgot to add to the list. The game looks fun and I know it's really random with the draws and rolls but it is only a light game.

Update
I knew that using dice would up the random factor but you can go through a few droughts of creatures or quiddity. That being said, I had fun playing the game and enjoyed the dice and artwork. The randomness will keep this as a deck builder that is better than Dominion to me.

Verdict
Buy (Since I already traded for Quarriors, this means it is staying in my collection.)

Just when I think I am out, they pull me back in. Darn you!

Update

I got to play this twice at my last game group meetup. It plays quick and offers some nice options to use your workers. I generally don't like worker placement games because I hate being blocked out but there are so many options with the multitude of buildings and intrigue card options.

My negatives are small. I would have preferred small figurines instead of blocks. The D&D theme is pasted on but you should be able to sneak this into any type of game group.

Buy

I am a sucker for Samurai and the miniatures look spectacular. Then you have two different rules to play and offer variety.

Update
I went ahead and purchased this. I am looking forward to painting my first miniatures and having samurais battle. I think I need to watch a few Kurosawa films.

I love Biblios and would give this a shot.

Update
This is Biblios with dice. At least they didn't make a Yahtzee variant but the randomness of the dice could turn some people off from the game. I just don't think it replaces Biblios for me but as a nice little dice filler it could easily fit in any collection.

Verdict
Pass

I played the WWI version and enjoyed the tactical dogfights. It seems the WWII offers variants for more detailed and authentic air battles.

Update
Another game I just went ahead and purchased. I had such a good time with the dogfights and Marco's review just sealed it for me.

Ninjas.

Update
I got to play this on Yucata verses Tom. I believe we had two live games playing at the same time. It is a set collection game but your set can be discarded if the other player places a set of 4. It is a nice little filler with easy to understand rules.

Verdict
Buy*


*So for the only place I could find it is at Funagain for $25 and that is a lot for a card gave. Maybe Stronghold games will pick it up since they seem to print a bunch of White Goblin games. So for the time being, I'll play it for free on Yucata.

I can't believe I didn't add this already. The miniatures look so wonderful and the guys at D6 Generation did a revue and it got me excited.

Update
I got to play a four player with Mike C., Chris, Russ and me. The build took a bit long but we were on our way afterwards. It plays exactly like Wings of War but with Star Wars ships. The models are great and worth buying alone.

Verdict
Buy*

*This could be expensive especially if you want multiple versions of the ships.

After watching a few videos, this looks like a fun game with nice big dice and some player interaction.

Update
Seasons is a collectible card game in a box. The dice add a nice random element and force you to decide die to take. Since I am a veteran gamer, I was taught with the draft method to start the game. You can see the combinations of cards that would work well together.

Verdict
