I am very new to serious Board Gaming. I have actually owned 3 few games for a while now (namely Risk, Hotels and Stockmarket). However, I have been an on-again-off-again type of player. But lately, I spent a holiday with Sanjay, a BGG member in India. He introduced me to Euro Games and I am hooked! I have commenced gaming only in December 2005 and on my return to Australia, after my Chennai holiday, commenced my collection with some recommendations. This is my collection of Board Games that I own... Any tips would be welcome.

Played this with Sanjay in Chennai. Got hooked the first time I played it. Had to buy it on getting back to Australia from my Chennai holiday!

Sanjay, my BGG friend, gave this to me as a spur to start off my games collection. It has indeed been a spur, for I purchased 4 more games within a week of returning to Australia! Very nice game, although I believe "Ticket to Ride: Europe" is better!

Never got to play this in Chennai. But purchased it because I was advised that it is a very good 2-player game. Now that I have got the missus into board gaming too, perhaps this is a game the two of us will play quite a bit.

Got introduced to this in Chennai. Love this game. A very very interesting game, I thought, especially if 4-5 players play it.

Played this several times in Chennai and never ever won even once. I am perhaps a Hare who can never ever get the end-game right!

A classic game, but I'd like to try some of the variants that've been suggested on BGG now.

I have grown a bit tired of this game. It is one in which you don't need to think a lot, I believe.
