This is a sort of wishlist - a collection of games that pulled my attention for whatever reason:

- I like other games of the same designer
- I heard good things about it
- the mechanisms seem cool or unique
- the board game looks nice...

We might eventually buy these games or we want to try them out once before we buy them.

Maybe you should a have look at our http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/161462/our-top-20-favourit... first to see what we like. In general, we like these games:

- games that can be played with 2 persons as well (we have 2 small boys of 2 and 1)
- family or medium-heavy expert games
- worker placement games
- games finished in less than 90 minutes
- not too many fiddly rules
- co-op games

You can always make suggestions or comment pro/con the entries so I can make my mind up!

I hear good and bad things about this game. The only drawbacks I might think of is that it doesn't play well with 2 players and the high price for a card game. But it seems to play fast, so maybe we need to give this one a try. We already like Hanabi, from the same designer, so if it's in the same line with this game, we will most probably like this one too.

These games from Bauza look interesting too: Ghost stories, Takenoko and The little prince

~ 35 EUR

Update 9/26/2013: I bought this one second hand for 25 EUR

We just started to discover Feld's universe with the Castles of Burgundy. We like this game a lot as a 2-player game. We don't bother with the minimal player interaction and we like the puzzling. I heard the mancala mechanism adds a bonus to this game? A Feld must have?

~ 34 EUR amazon.de

Dice game, area control and worker placement with a sci-fi theme looks promising. Does it play well with 2 players too?

This seems really cool! An island that is slowly sinking and you need to swim or escape by boat to the outskirts and hope you don't get drowned or eaten by sharks in the meantime... nice components!

We like Reiner Knizia's games in general. This older title still seems to stand strong in the BGG list. It's hard to find (out of print?), so we hope we can find this one second hand somewhere?

A fantasy-themed worker placement game is rather unique but we already have that many worker placement games (Agricola, Stone Age, Tzolk'in) so why bother for another one?

We already own a lot of 2-player only games and this one seems like a good complement to these:

- Lost cities
- Jambo
- Hive
- Settlers of Catan - the card game
- Jaipur

We already bought the card game second hand. We haven't tried that one yet (although I already read the rules), so maybe we need to play that one first before we should buy this one...

Caylus is hard to get these days but maybe we just need to have this classic worker placement game in our collection to make it complete? We like other worker placement games like Agricola, Stone Age, Tzolk'in... maybe this one is a little bit too 'dry' with no actual theme?

We have 2 small boys and the oldest one turns 3 in November 2013. We're trying to get them attracted to board games, which will not be a problem because he always want to play with us while we are gaming.

We already play Orchard from HABA and he already knows to wait for his turn, taking the right fruit from the trees. This game might be the next step up although it requires some balancing skills he might not master yet.

Need to buy from amazon.de ~ 15 EUR

Update 10/28/2013: bought german edition at Essen

This seems like an interesting game but I don't think it will hit our table a lot as the playing time equals 2 hours (or more). I've no doubt it's a good game but as we won't have the time to play this game a lot (we have 2 small children, almost 3 and 1 year old), I'd rather say 'try before we buy'. We already have a lot of good but long games in our cupboard and this one will be just sitting there without being pulled out I'm afraid...

~ 53 EUR

This game is quite expensive (around 40 EUR) but it seems like a game where children are favored with their small fingers in comparison to adults. Maybe our oldest son is still a little bit young to play this game as he still needs to turn 3 in November.
