Well it’s about that time of year again and the wife has once again accused me of "being hard to buy for". Hogwash! I am damm easy, and easy to buy for too. The following list is huge and I want every game on it . A better name for this list maybe "Living Proof of Matt's ever constant Greed!!", but I don't care. If I have to be a little bit assuming and self-centered in order to avoid another pair of socks or a Mickey Mouse tie for Christmas then so be it.

This list is public so any one can read it and make comments. Should the really smart people that frequent this online community choose to comment on anything I list (which I welcome and hope they will) take note of what they say. They are often boardgame hobbyist to a degree which I could only hope of ever achieving. I have trusted more than one suggestion that I got from this site and have yet to be unhappy with a purchase decision influenced by the people that frequent this site.

That all said this is a big list so I have rated each game by how badly I want it. The scale is 1 (don’t really want it) to 10 (really want this one bad). Obviously no 1's have made my Christmas wish list and in fact you won’t see anything below a 7 here. This system is more of way to distinguish games on this list from other games on this list. It’s an internal rating. However rest assured that I would be happy with any game on this list. And also note that I haven't played ANY of these games before. So any game that I rate a 7 may in fact become one of my favorite games once I actually play it with some folks a few times.


Where to Buy?

Should you choose to accept the challenge of getting me one of these beauties instead of that tie that I will never wear, I would suggest getting them online. It will be cheaper and more convenient for you. Personally I use http://www.fairplaygames.com/ for all of my game purchases. However I have heard good things about http://www.gamesurplus.com/ and http://www.bouldergames.com/ as well.



To Potential Commenters:

Please comment. Your comments are something I do read and take note of. This list will probably be a referential list for many months even after Christmas for things I personally want to get. As far as my personal tastes go, I loved PR for its numerous strategic paths to victory, its minimal downtime and its short (3 games in a night) gametime. I typically like more cerebral games then luck based games but I am not an anti-dice Nazi by any stretch. Wargames are something I will always like but lately these strongly themed German brain busters have really caught my eye. Games that have my opponents or I screaming in agony by a well played or subtle move are great. Games that encourage "screw your neighbor" tactics are also winners as far as I am concerned. However I want everyone in the game to the last minute if possible so runaway leaders with little recourse to stop them is not something I typically enjoy (though if the game is short enough it’s not that big of a problem).

Thanks for any comments if you choose to comment .

Ok so I am a sucker for computer to boardgame conversions. I really liked the Age of Mythology boardgame and this looks like something I would really enjoy as well. I need this one for GnG (Guys Night Gaming) as it would be a no brainer sell to anyone that showed up.

This one was just realeased at Essen this year. So its pretty unlikely you will find it anywhere. I am also a little concerned that the rules and components will not be in english. That all said it looks as if this might be the next huge (in terms of acceptance) german variety game. i have been lapping up all of the reviews I have found to read on the net. I really want this one, but sadly I don't think its possiable mostly because of avialabilty .

Originally the theme of this one turned me off. I have never been a big fan of the railway genre of boardgames. However eventually the playtest sessions reports and articles won me over. The board still looks a little bland but I am very excited about the gameplay. It looks to be very metally engaging.

The theme of this eventually grew on me to the point where I really want a racing themed game. This is supposed to be the best. However (would love some comments here) the 2003 version of this game is call Formula De Mini, which seems to be a light gamers version. I don't really consider myself a "light" gamer (literally of figurativly) so I thought the orginal version might be the best fit for me. However, and I hate to be shallow here, the mini version looks prettier. I think the original is the best fit regaurdless.

The fact that this one just recently won games magazines Game of year really put this on the map for me. Picking a game because it won something may seem shallow but considering I am really not that picky when it comes to games its hard for me to go wrong doing that.

Ok so I am sucker for technology. This one just looks interesting to me. I think my 6 year could really enjoy playing as well. The voice is a gimmick for sure but if it adds to the experience then talk it up.

Unfortunatly there might be some trouble finding this one. Hopefully the online sites will have them in before christmas.
