I have a bad habit of buying games before trying them out and they end up sitting in my game closet indefinitely. I've found that if I play a game before buying it, there is a much higher chance that I will play it more often when I do buy it. This list is to keep track of games on my radar and hopefully play them before I add them to my next game order.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

VERY tempted to snatch this one up, but I'm trying to be disciplined. Hopefully I'll have a chance to try this out at RinCon or BGG.con.

Looks like a great 2-player game. Hopefully I can find someone willing to teach me.

As a huge Firefly fan, it's going to be hard to not just get this one.

Something this epic really needs a trial run. It looks good though.

Seems straight-forward enough and I've played the original game once.

I keep buying similar games without opening them so I really need to make sure I'm ready before jumping on this one. I still have Decent-Second Edition in shrink... shameful.

Looks good, good reviews, and my wife and I love Summoner Wars, which seems similar in some ways. This seems significantly more complicated though so I need to make sure I know what I'm getting into.
