I went a little crazy, getting back into the hobby full bore. Useful to check against the next geek list.. the inevitable what to get next.

Most of these choices were based on on-line reviews, etc.

I've loved DOW games since we discovered Mystery at the Abbey at GenCon last year. Wonderful production values, and it was a good game. Was looking for something lighter than the Iron Rail type train games I've played at friends. Hoping I can interest my train hobbiest father and uncle into it.

This was my introduction to Euro gaming, played on a holiday with my brother and sister in law, just haven't ever owned one myself.

Same deal, love the DOW games. And couldn't pass up the possibility of cooperative play.. and maybe even a traitor. Plus, I've always loved Arthurian legends.

This seems great, love Blokus. I'm hoping to get my Uncle who we can only entice to play Dominoes to expand a bit.

Reviews and descriptions seem to indicate this is a good group card game. Sometimes friends from our LARP group get together and play board or card games, and this seemed like it might be up our alley.

I have a friend who writes RPGs for Z-man, and we were introduced to the b-movie games. This one looked intreguing, a little combative between players, a little strategy, and something to appeal to the biologist or old life program fiddler in all of us. played once.. was a bit slow, but fun. Think it will get faster with familiarity.

I love Pirates. And I love Days of Wonder's production values. Yeah, its going to be a lighter game, but that's okay.

Again, same reasons as above. We also saw a demonstration of this at GenCon last year. Didn't seem to impressive, but playing online was more interesting. Have hopes for family or geek gaming get togethers.

Seemed like the perfect sort of party game for our wild extroverted geekie friends. Can't wait to hear them market their products. Also got the extra cards.

I'm also a Looney Labs fan. Love Fluxx.. hoping this can also be used to tempt family members from Dominoes. I get so sick of Dominoes.

Hoping for a more funny and varied game than the backstabbing of Munchkin types, which is popular with the gang just for theme. We like screwing each other sometimes.
