This was the second year of the Dice Tower Convention, held in Orlando, Florida, and these are the games that I brought home.

I always tell myself that I will cut back and only get "a couple" of new games. It's a always a little more than I planned.

I played this at the con & fell in love with it. Cool Stuff confirmed they had a copy at their local store and delivered it to the con the next morning.

So, thanks to Cool Stuff for making it so easy for me to spend more money.

I picked this up at the Flea Market.

...and when I say, "picked up," I mean that I picked it up and bought it as soon as my buddy Doug put it down to think about whether he should buy it or not. Sorry, Doug!!

My friend, Terry, actually bought this at the Flea Market and gave it to me because he thought it looked like something I would like...and he was right!

It was really sweet of him to gift this to me. I hope to play it with him sometime soon!

I bought this on the Virtual Flea Market, and have not played it at all, nor do I know anyone that has. I like the Kosmos 2-player games in general, so I figured it was worth picking up to try.

Before the con, I had 2 copies of this game. I Math Traded my sealed copy, and was back down to one copy.

At the con, I won another copy at the raffle!

I'm back to having 2 copies of this game.

Math Trade! I haven't played it, but I like abstract games where you get to build things. It seemed like a fun choice.

Another Math Trade. It's already gotten played a few times & it amazes me how poorly my friends (not me) draw AND how quickly this game devolves to something really dirty.

Math Trade - I just need to find someone now to teach this game to me. If I have any takers in Jacksonville, FL, let me know.

Raffle win!

I think I only won the raffle (twice!) this year because my friend wrote my name as "Shari Fart".

I played the game at the con and loooooved it! I'm definitely happy to have a copy in my collection.

I bought this from the Virtual Flea Market, and it's already been played a couple of times since getting home.

I plan on setting it up in my office next week.

Another dexterity game I picked up in the Virtual Flea Market...

We set up a track at the con and played. Who knew flicking a marble with your thumb is so damn hard?!

My friends and I pooled together Cool Stuff gift certificates we had to buy this for our group.

Somehow, it seems like everyone in that group has played it except me.

Bogus!

I bought this from the Virtual Flea Market. I actually love the 10 Days in... series, and I read that this game was like that, but more frantic.

I haven't played it yet.

This was a freebie in my con bag. I don't know anything about the game, but I'm sure we will try it at some point.
