It's time for the monthly list of new games that you acquired in August 2013. These don't have to be new games that came out, but games that are new to your collection.

Feel free to list what games you acquired this month. How you obtained them and if you think it was a good deal. Let us know if they sit unopened, have been played many times, or you traded away after just one play.

This game intrigues me. It looks like something I can solo play and then play with my son or friend on a Sunday afternoon.

Reading rules and waiting to get this played. I think this will get tons of plays.

Got in my first game and wow is that game everything I wanted. Initial game play and satisfaction was a 10 for me. I will give it more plays over this long weekend, but best new game I have played in a while.

Wow, Played four games of this so far this weekend and it's amazing. One of my best purchases so far this year... by far.

The remake of this game. I don't really know what made me buy this game. It seems rather light, which should sit well with my game group.

I've had my eye on it for awhile, but the price was more than I wanted to pay and the trades just weren't there. I found it on a Geekauction for $25. Then when the auction was over, I noticed this didn't move:



So I wrote the owner and offered the opening bid ($15). Combined shipping. SWISH!

I put up a post looking for recommendation on some games I was interested in. I wanted this and also:



Both look like they are really good games and I have liked everything I have thus far played by the designer (Michael Rinella) and I also like the area-impulse mechanic.

Sokadr pointed me to the ConSimWorld Marketplace, where I got them both for $20 each with combined shipping. I sat down to knock out Birth of a Legend, but instead of reading the instructions, I read the excellent accompanying article. This month, it's going to happen!

I went for the hat trick and nailed it: getting the 3 area-impulse Michael Rinella designs I was targeting.

This time, I traded Omaha Beachhead: Battle for the Bocage for it. It was never going to get played. I got it 3 years ago at a 2nd hand store (unpunched) for $10 because I had no D-Day games. Since then, I've added quite a few, including D-Day at Omaha Beach, which is so good that it pretty much promised to bury this on my shelf, so I was happy to clear up the room and get one I've been wanting.

Being a fan of Worthington Games, I wanted to add this to my collection. I love the cover. The concept is interesting, also. However, it went out of print. It's not on the Geek Marketplace. I had one trade possibility and was rejected, so I was really happy to see it pop up on EBay and grab it for $22.

A couple of years ago, I created this Geeklist, where users enter local game stores that sell wargames. The idea is that when you travel, you can check it out, since phone books are about worthless (game stores tend to be video games or Euros).

So I went on a 2 week vacation through California's national parks and in the Bay Area, I hit a pair of game stores. I found Prussia's Defiant Stand for $29 2nd hand, and at another store, I grabbed this one new:

On the last day of vacation, after checking out Fisherman's Wharf, we had about a half a day to do nothing, so we decided to go to Sacramento and check out a legendary game store. It was 1:00 Friday, so I should beat the commuter traffic, right?

shake

3 hours later, I arrived. Needless to say, I wrote the governor and told him whoever designed I-85 should be thrown into Alcatrez for life. Every time I hit a city (Berkely, Davis, etc), the interstate went from 5 lanes to 3, causing traffic to grind to a halt. I've seen some dumb things, but few that can compare to that (and that includes Oregon's law that outlaws you from pumping your own gasoline, but I digress...).

So I get there to find out that the store has been there for 30-some years, but their wargame selection was really weak. Ubberly-disappointed, I couldn't leave empty-handed, so I grabbed this. I'd have rather got it on Coolstuff someday, but now was as good as any to get it. My family likes Forbidden Island, so it seems like a natural, and I must admit it is a lot better and more challenging.

I also saw this 2nd hand for $33. I've kind of wanted it, but never wanted to pay the price for it and trades don't work out since wargames and Euros usually don't mix:



So I drove 3 hours to get a couple of Euros... shakeshakeshake

Well, I do have a story to tell. By the way, the drive back was easy: I was able to drive 80 the entire way and blew by about everybody.

A older, 1983, and rare Gettysburg game to add to my Gettysburg Game Collection. It had no pictures here on BGG in the game entry. I fixed that.
Huge box too! I had no idea of the size until it arrived. I put a 12" ruler on the box cover in one of the pictures for reference.

I always wanted this for the topic. Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors is such a good story on the heroic action in Samar Bay as a few US Destroyers and Destroyer Escorts took on a huge Japanese surface fleet that included the Yamato!
eBay pick up for 7.50
I picked up another ATO Magazine game from the same seller to help cut down shipping costs.(Actually not, but it is my rationalizing buying more stuff from a seller.)

I grabbed this at our local game store to start the 2nd series of release for this LCG. I have been having some fun playing this. In fact, earlier in August I picked up all 6 data pack expansions from Series 1. I believe I am now up to date and complete with this.

This very small Kickstarter arrived also. It is just 15 cards. It is suppose to be a very portable game that plays with the coins in your pocket, making it a perfect barroom type game.
My problem with that is the type is so small that I need bright lights to see it. Bright lights just aren't that common in the restaurants or bars I go to. My hope is once you know the game, the print is not needed.

That was my August acquisitions. I did grab another mini-expansion for Tzolk'in from the BGG Store and the cube upgrade for Through the Ages.

September-October-November looks like a big three months upcoming for Pre-orders & Kickstarter deliveries.

Fascinating!

I`ve never played (or been interested in) Paths of Glory so I`m finding Pursuit of Glory has a steep learning curve. But I`m just loving it. Poring over it a couple of hours a day and it`s slowly sinking in. Playing along with a live ACTS game is a massive boon to understanding.

GREAT GAME!

Brass: Lancashire

Acquired from the online store. Played twice now. Deep game which needs more plays to truly fathom!

I also managed to acquire the following from a store called Meeples while I was in Malaysia:

Friday

Played 6X during my 2 week business trip. Useful for bringing around in future trips alone.

Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 2 – India & Switzerland

Managed to try out both the India and Switzerland maps. Good addition to the base game.

I got a timely heads-up on an Amazon sale and finally got to really get my collection going. This one has been really popular in my slowly-growing group, and has been quite fun. The variable 'difficulty level' of the game will allow it to remain challenging as we get better at it, too.
