This is a game that would probably be on my "grail" list, if I had one. I've only played it a couple of times now at the Hooplas, but seriously dig it, and it's out of print. Yeah, I know they redid it with airplanes, but airplanes are nowhere near as cool as trains, says I.

Thanks go again to Brent at Wishing Tree Games, as it was only due to his sacrificing his spot that I was able to try this one out.
A dungeon crawl game, where you battle monsters by flicking wooden discs at them. I really enjoyed this one too, and it's now on my "would love to own sometime" list.

BSG with both the Pegasus and Exodus expansions. My first game of BSG ever, and I had a blast. I doubt I'll ever own this one because I know pretty much nobody who would play it, but I'll certainly be checking it out at conventions again.

A fun little game where you have a bunch of dinos on an island with varying climates, and the way they "evolve" to development better protection against different climates (as well as evolving better fighting ability) will be a major determining factor in who wins a victory.

I've had this one sitting on the shelf for at least a couple of years now, and finally found a couple of opponents at hoopla.
Unfortunately, my rules skill were a total fail and we played it totally wrong. And wow does paper money suck in this game.
Still, I could see the enjoyment it in and want to try it again, now that I'm more familiar with the rules. And next time with poker chips.

Another beer-themed game, this one is about selling beer ingredients (water, hops, grain) to breweries, which may pay more or less depending on varying supply and demand.
I think this is another one that needs multiple plays to really "get" it - for most of our game the market prices stayed so low that it made the game drag for a good while.
Still, absolutely worth more play.
