2 years into the hobby and there are only 2 games i am really "chomping at the bits" for.

I'm still really enjoying playing games but find i'm getting at most mildly intrigued by the new releases this year.

Help me restore my wishlist to it's former glory. Suggest a game and sell it to me .

Thought i would kick things off with a bit about the 2 games i am excited about. Universally good reviews for this one. I've heard there's an anniversary edition coming out but not sure if that was an essen only thing.

Again many good reviews. I get a lot of 2 player gaming done with an old school friend so this seems a good fit.

A game doesn't have to be new to be 'new to you'; I bet you could find plenty for your wishlist from already existing games. You like Dominion and you like Stronghold - so how about Thunderstone? Deckbuilding fantasy battle game.

Or Core Worlds and/or Race for the Galaxy? Deckbuilding with a SF theme (Dominion + Space Hulk).

Looks to me like you like a mix of thematics and Euros, so I'm not surprised you like Stronghold, which is a really nice balance of those. Two more suggestions based on that, then. This.

And this. Surprisingly euro-ish, with lots of good theme and some nice decision points.

Since you like Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne, I think you might enjoy this one too. It's light and fun, easy to learn, and plays in about 45 minutes. It's not a heavy strategy game. It has beautiful, high quality components, and it's a pleasure just to look at it. As a bonus, there's something especially satisfying about hurling your opponents' citizens into a volcano! On top of everything else, it's fairly expensive, which should help keep your wallet empty, thus fulfilling one of the primary purposes of a hobby (the other being to waste all your free time).

1. Under $11 street price. (Not sure what the pound conversion rate is, but that's cheap!)

2. You can't see your own card faces, but you have to choose which cards to play.

3. Enjoyed by both gamers and nongamers.
