I've been playing board games for nearly 2 years now but this has been the first Christmas that my obsession has been in full flow and I was lucky enough to receive lots of games.

This list is for us to show off our Christmas haul and let everyone know how excited or underwhelmed we are.

Myself and my cousin bought this for each other this year and after the initial D'oh moment, I have to say I'm very excited. I have played through the first two teaching scenarios and can't wait to play some more. I got the Normandy and Operation Neptune expansions as well and should have received Atlantikwall but he 'forgot to buy it'.

Really wish I had kickstarted this but I didn't even know about Kickstarter back then.

Great present!!

Another cock up by me here. Had this on two secret santa lists and guess what both bought me?
Luckily Boardgameguru.co.uk are awesome and agreed to exchange the copy I got from my BGG secret santa.
Haven't yet played it but I have had a good look inside and read through the rules.
Looks awesome and I can't wait to play it.
Very happy with this.

This is the game I managed to swap Belfort for. I love Castle Ravenloft and have been eyeing this for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity to finally get my dirty mits on it.
The components are jaw droppingly impressive and if it plays anything like Castle Ravenloft, it will be a big hit.
Thanks again BGG Secret Santa!!

Arkham Horror has long been one of, if not my very favorite games and I'm not sure why but it has taken me until now to get more than the one expansion into the fold (maybe it's because I found 'The curse of the dark Pharaoh' to be disappointing.
I also got
Arkham Horror: Miskatonic Horror Expansion

and
Arkham Horror: The Black Goat of the Woods Expansion


The collection is well under way and I can't wait for a monster Arkham session!

Funny one this. I played it once and hated it so much that we didn't even finish it. However, we started late in the day and were tired and even then I felt there was a good game waiting to be discovered. I have been wanting to play this again since that time and am very glad the the Wife went out of her way to get it for me.

Looking forward to playing this but will start early in the day after a good sleep this time.

Plus all the available expansions.

I'm a Star Wars fan so this was always going to be a winner but the production quality has sealed it.
I've already had great fun boxing and bagging everything so the actual gameplay will be a bonus.
