If you're looking for an intellectually fulfilling list, look elsewhere. Just for fun, here is a list of the games I just ordered today. I'm trying to turn my new gaming group into "real" gamers. This list is a small step up in "meatiness" from my other orders. There are also a few more fillers that my group should love. This is my third game purchase, and my biggest one yet. All I am looking for is any kind of comments about any game. Hey, it was a big purchase, and I want to know how well I did!

A game that I can hopefully teach without stress. And fillers always get played with my young group...

For Sale

Another filler. I can't believe I never purchased an auction game before now. I believe my group will love this. Maybe my non-gamer parents will even play it!

I was desperate for a western themed game. I chose this over Wyatt Earp because it seems like silly fun. (Oh, was I supposed to be looking for meatier games)?

Deflexion

I have been drooling over this game since it was in early production. One of my 4 group members saw this in (I believe) Popular Science magazine, and he actually asked me if I was getting it. That makes it even more of a sure buy.

My group seems to enjoy abstracts because they tend to have simple rules. I finally decided on this one because of how well it supposedly scales. The fact that it can by played solitare left me little choice but to add it. Any comments on the solitare game?

Through the Desert

Okay, here is one that actually is a little meatier than what my group is used to. I have had my eye on this one for a long time. I love the simple rules and great scalability. Any suggestions explaing the basic strategy to new players?

Ra

Finally, the reason I decided to place an order to begin with. This game sure did end up costing me a lot! I will probably be playing this as a three player game unless I find a really easy way to explain the scoring to the impatient 12 year old in our group. Also, any comments on the two player game (best variant,etc..)?
