So, my FLGS had a canned food drive. For donating cans, we received raffle tickets that we could then toss into a number of different drawings. The drawing I chose was a box full of board games. Some had boxes that were imperfect, and some were surplus. As it turns out, I, whom is very unlucky when it comes to lottery-style contests, won!

Below is a list of all the games included in the package, and my varying levels of excitement for each. I'm very much looking forward to playing some of these, and others I intend to trade for something else. I'd like some help deciding which to keep and which to trade. So I'm going to ask you to post any experience (positive or negative) you've had with the games, as it may help me decide what to do.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Troyes has had my attention for a while and I was very excited to find it inside the box! I plan on opening this one very soon.

I love me some dice!

I'm a big fan of games that are easy to explain and quick to play - it's a good way to a party going. I'm going to bring this one out at a Christmas party in a few days, then decide if it's a keeper.

I don't even understand what is happening on this box and am afraid to open it. It looks like some kind of space party is going on inside.

I played this once at the FLGS. It left no lasting impression whatsoever. I'll probably open it again and give it a second try before deciding on its fate.

I feel the same way about Lemming Mafia as I do about High Society. See that entry for details.

I'll try this one out on my group. We are all pretty fierce negotiators, so I imagine some serious business going down here.

I wasn't very interested until I did a bit more research on this one. The modular karts look like a lot of fun. I'm just a bit worried that it may not interest the group very much. This game seems to be landing in a grey space for me.

I'm a huge fan of heavy Euros, but Rio de la Plata does not grab me in the least. For worker placement, I'd rather pay Stone Age or Agricola (or try out Troyes), and the theme is incredibly dull. Also, the playing time would probably be an issue with a few in my group.

This one isn't high on my radar. I may trade it off.

So, there were a bunch of HeroClix boosters in the box. I don't play HeroClix, so I plan on maybe trading these as a lot or something. If anyone's interested, let me know! I've got:

5-figure Halo booster
1-figure Lord of the Rings booster
Marvel Chaos War Marquee Figure - Vision
1-figure Gears of War 3 booster (x3)
Batman Marquee figure - Nightwing and Batgirl
5-figure Batman booster
1-figure The Dark Knight booster
