made a suggestion to apply this to buying games.

No cheating! Now that you've read this, the contest starts. How long can you go without buying a new game or expansion (edit: or accessory)?

To start this, post the last game you paid for and what date that was.

As soon as you break down and pay for a new game, post an entry here for the game you acquired and how long you were able to last.

Note: games that you've already paid for (e.g., preorders) don't cause you to lose when they arrive, but any new preorders or kickstarters you fund do count. Edit: after seeing several comments, I'm changing the rule to any orders that you've already placed but haven't been charged for (including kickstarters not yet funded) DO NOT DISQUALIFY YOU.

Also, please thumb this so we can put it on the front page. I know I'll lose but I'm curious to see how long some people can last.

I put in an order for The Great Zimbabwe and needed another $5 for shipping so I added this game as it was a planned purchase anyway. I want to get Terra Mystica when it comes out from Zman in the spring (or later), otherwise I'm going to try to not buy any games.

Mind you, I have a healthy preorder list right now so I won't be hurting for new stuff coming in.

Purchased via proxy 8/18/2012

I expect to win this, given that I've got no money available to spend on games right now (we've started up a new advertising agency) and I've got collector friends who like to buy all the latest.

The next game I might buy would be Terra Mystica if/when it gets reprinted.

I bought a Christmas gift for Sam, so I can't say what it is here, but I haven't bought anything since the discussion that led to the creation of this list. The only thing that might hurt my chances will be if I get to go thrifting next week. If that doesn't happen, or I don't find anything, I'm thinking January before I order another game.

I brought a thermos of cocoa and some snacks, I plan to be here a while.

EDIT: typo that was bugging me.

Bought this game on 2012-08-17

I actually traded for Merchants & Marauders on 2012-10-09, but if trades don't count, then I've already got a jump on the competition.

I only have 1 P500 outstanding (Thunder Alley) and no other un-purchased items.

I think I can make it to the new year, as I have gifts from the holidays coming... whistle

Great idea for a list, Jimmy.

I picked up a copy of Sicily: The Race for Messina off Ebay on November 11 at 9:21pm. So that will be my start time.

I will add that this was a mere 6 hours after winning a pair of games at the Plainfield, IL, Wandering Dragon Shoppe first-time auction. Those two were Kingmaker (AH 1st edition) for $6 and History of the World (AH 1st edition) for $11.

Preordered September 1. I was good and didn't even grab the halloweeny expansion (yet). My birthday's tomorrow and I'm trying so very, very, very hard to be good (my family and friends are generally scared to buy me boardgames cause they lose track of what I've got, so there'll be no joy there). Don't know if I'll make it all the way to Christmas...

I committed to stop buying games on 10-05-12. Shortly before that, I preordered The Great Zimbabwe, Archipelago, Suburbia, Keyflower, and Terra Mystica. I've committed to stop buying until at least 10-05-13. I was very tempted to buy Moongha Invaders: Mad Scientists and Atomic Monsters Attack the Earth! when it went up on kickstarter a couple of weeks later, but I made my decision and I'm going to stick to it. I'm hoping that the year off will force me to play all of my unplayed games.

I added this to my pending Boards&Bits order (Yeah; I almost always have a pending Boards&Bits order: Tom's very good about shipping things when I want them.) on Oct30, 2012.

Since then I've not ordered any new games. Wow: two whole weeks! I'm sure one or two of you are impressed with my restraint.

I do have a few things on the way.
1) Against a bit of my better judgment (I'm not a fan of Kickstarter, though I think the game will be excellent) I supported the reprint of Moongha Invaders: Mad Scientists and Atomic Monsters Attack the Earth!. That'll arrive sometime next year.
2) I've a deepthoughtgames.com order in the queue. I expect that will become 1846: The Race for the Midwest and 1889: History of Shikoku Railways in due course. Perhaps early in 2014.
3) I've a copy of Terra Mystica in the works. I think it's currently hanging out in Los Angeles - but it should eventually mail its way to me. Perhaps in the next week or two.
4) I've a copy of Keyflower in the mail from England. Given how long The Great Zimbabwe languished in customs, I'm not expecting it any time soon. Hopefully before Christmas.
5) And I do have that Boards&Bits order in progress. It contains several things - including that copy of Little Devils.

I assert that I lose if I add anything to my Boards&Bits order, or order a game from another source. While the DTG queue is a bit on the loose side, I'll consider I've also lost if I hit the front of the queue and want to add a third game (18MEX?) to the build (though I won't consider that I've lost if I pay for the two games that I'd already thought I wanted to order there.)

Is that adequately compatible with the rules? whistle

Not counting secret santa, the last game I "purchased" was the Shattered Timelines expansion for Sentinels of the Multiverse. Obviously, that's still ongoing, but I jumped in on the Kickstarter on Oct. 30th, 2012.

If we do count Secret Santa, then Nov. 14th 2012. Granted, I won't get that game, but I will get another game (or games? maybe? please?) so I sort of feel like it should count.

I ordered an artscow deck for this game which is still in development. Thought it looked interesting so I asked permission to create and play it. Permission was granted and payment was made to artscow on November 15th.

Currently I have 3 orders in play, neither of which have been charged so I will soon be out... it will be fun to see which order triggers it though - will it be:

1825 Unit 1, King of Tokyo: Power Up! or perhaps the most unlikely candidate Signum Mortis

Bought 8th November.

Very neat game for a reasonable price, but I fear it won't be long before my need to gorge on components reasserts itself.

I will hold out as long as I can. The jar of £2 coins that funds game purchasing is looking worryingly full and healthy, and it's not good to let currency sit around devaluing in this economic climate.

Edit:

I am out! Actually I was out in early December, it's just taken me until now to come to terms with my failure. It was such a tiny thing that did it. I wanted to get some friends of mine the Dixit: 2012 Asmodee Special Cards for Christmas, and while I was in the geek store it made perfect sense to pick up Cyclades: Hecate, Cyclades: The Manticore, and Galaxy Trucker: Even-Steven Cards. I don't even own the newest Galaxy Trucker expansion, so those cards are useless for now!

Willpower, I hasn't it.
