Last year I put together an unwieldy geeklist showing all of my gaming acquisitions.

To alleviate this, I'm going to convert the annual list to a monthly one. I may put together an annual summary at the end of the year.

I had won this in an BGG Auction in Decembe, 2012. I picked it up to upgrade the copy I already had in my personal Avalon Hill collection, now approaching upwards of 300 items.

The same seller also had this item. It went unsold in the auction, so he and I negotiated a price. IMO, this is the one mandatory accessory to the classic game of Dragonmaster.

Another key expansion to Supremacy, we also worked out a deal for me to get this, also.

I got an opportunity to pick up a couple of old, Avalon Hill sports games into my collection at really good prices.

I never thought that the Avalon Hill sports games would become as difficult as they are to obtain at reasonable prices.

Visited a local game store to play a couple rounds of this game. I was rewarded for visiting with TWO copies of the Tribbles promotional card.

I'm trying to complete my collection of Runebound products. I was amazed to find a vendor who still had a few of the hard-to-find expansions...at close to list value!

Sadly, the shop was all the way out in Australia and was unwilling to ship outside of the island continent.

BGG to the rescue! I was able to find a kind, helpful Aussie who was willing to purchase these, then mail it on to me stateside.

Despite $30 in shipping fees for 3 deck expansions, the total cost was still well worth it...have you seen how much people are asking for these lately?!

So, big thanks to
