Hey everyone,

I thought I would add a list of those games that are fun games but....expensive!!!! So even though we have good times playing them, they are still bank breakers -especially for those that have to get every expansion.

Make it the "Glad I did...but maybe I shouldn't have..." list. Or "Competionist's Remorse".

Feel free to add any games you would like.

Oh boy!

I knew this was coming. I knew ther would be a lot of expansions and little things to get, but it has only been a year. The 3rd expansion is being worked on....add the extra sub-bosses, and the conversion kit...and there is a lot already for this game.

I skipped the first one becasue it wa already OOP when I decided it was a path I wanted to take. Maybe I should have bit the bullet and accepted the OOP prices. It might have been cheaper in the end.

I wanted everything for this game...so I backed it at the $500 level on Kickstarter, thinking this would take care of most of it for a while.

Then comes news of the Frigost expansion...and that the pledge level will probably be the same as the base game. Great...$1000+ on one game in around 1 year? Damn me for wanting every character and every little nice terrain....

And speaking of getting everything.....

- Yes I have every monster expansion.
- Yes I even bought the extra monster boxes so that I have double of each type of monster.
- Yes I have Candy & Cola and Nyan Nyan
- Yes I have problems

And it looks like more is coming too...this is going to get even more expensive.

Back in the days of of my youth & Blood Bowl, I was fine with proxying in an Elf for an Orc.

But those days are over.

Maybe it is because I am not 14 years old, and I have income coming in. Or maybe I want to get everything more, now that I have grown up. But every single time the pledge manager comes around, my bank account gets hit hard. I promised myself I wouldn't spend too much for this game....

.....I broke my own promise.

This wasn't the most expensive game - but especially if you want to sleeve the cards it can add up - plus there are lots of expansions.

I know even without sleeves, I've spent over $100 on this one easily

Now, I rate this game a 10 and love it.

But there are so many expansions for this game. I got most everything, but just finally could not keep up. I love to play it, but had to finally just stop buying EVERYTHING.

I figured I would add one more.

I kickstarted this, and went for anything that said it would alter or work into gameplay....even one shots.

I have no idea how much I spend in the end......but check my preorder list to see the damage. lol

OOP AND a ton of expansions? Sign me up.

Thankfully I bought and sold as I went so I got around 500 worth of stuff for 200, but that's still a good chunk of change. Worst part is it hardly gets played (though everyone enjoys it).

This game is SOOOO fun! BUT, I spent way too much money on it. WAAAY too much. Base set, expansions, extra dice, playing board, storage box, more expansions... Ugh.

And now I can't even play it because my boyfriend and I broke up and it went with him. cry

Sure, it begins with a couple of starter decks...

I don't regret buying Arkham, but ooooh the expansions. I don't have them all, but I did get DH, MH, Luker, Black Goat, and King in Yellow. I've played with them (and that's the right word) once or twice, but man, I honestly enjoy the base game alone and didn't realize it until the damage had already been done!

I of course also had to go all out on a storage solution to hold it all, but it's mostly home made and actually looks pretty nice. Still though, time and money spent for sure.

Its been a while since I have visited this list. That means I have been doing pretty good in my gaming selections....

....until I discovered this series.

So lets see, in the past two weeks I have ordered:

BattleCON: WoI
Strikers
Devistation extended pack
and the promo character in the geekstore

Oh and I ordered this game first...but I don't even have it yet. And there are still promos that I will probably never get.

WHY AM I SUCH A SUCKER?
