Last year I went to spellenspektakel @ Eindhoven for the first time. My shopping list then nearly doubled my collection : http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...
This year I feel I'm a bit more experienced in the hobby. With the help of BGG I constructed a list of must-have games and went to the spellenspektakel to get a good bargain. Here's what I came home with.

€29.95 ~ $36
Caylus was a must have for me. I'm pretty sure that when I left for Eindhoven on Friday it wasn't ranked where it is now. I had 30 euro's left and was looking for Mesopotamie. But I stumbled across one shop in the corner where they sold Caylus, including Dutch rules. The people there confirmed they were the only ones selling Caylus at the spellenspektakel. Good thing I checked around a second time!
Waiting to see if this catches on as good as Puerto Rico did with my girlfriend. (my favourite 2 player game)

I've got a bit discouraged after glancing at the rules but I hope I'll be able to figure them out. Seems to have some nice mechanics.

After being in the top 100 for well over a year this is a welcome re-issue. I hope this will be a good 2 player game as well.

I caught the buzz when I read about the Amigo re-issue. The number one spot on this list ensured a purchase : http://www.fairplay-online.de/magazin/Scout05Nennungen.html

Alhambra was on my shopping list last year, but I caught rumours this game wasn't good for 2 players. False information it seems, so this year it was on my shopping list again.

I was hoping to get this signed by Friedemann Friese, but I couldn't find him. I think this will be a great game with the right crowd.

I'm always on the lookout for great 2 player games to share with my wife and this one had a fair price.

I've read different views about this game with 2 players but for this price I'm willing to find out if it sticks.

Cardgames are imho great ways to start people in the hobby, so I'm starting a collection called "the portable conversion to boardgaming kit". This one is a must.

Bought this for the great collection of cards that allows a lot of other games, including lost cities.

Another addition to the "portable conversion to boardgaming kit". Simultaneous action selection is a mechanic not often seen in card games with a regular suit.
