I made a list of my unplayed games in 2011. That list has 13 games on it at that time and I played most, traded away a few and 2 of those, sadly, continue on to this list.

Until very recently, I considered myself a player and not a collector. If I have a game in my collection I intend to play it. Once played, if I don't see myself playing it some more, onto the trade pile it goes.

A month, or so, ago, I got a wild hair and decided to complete my Alea Big Box collections and I have 12 of the 15 games as of right now. The new games this added to my shelves got me to re-consider all the games I own that either need to hit the table or the trade pile....

The first of the two games from my 2011 list. Sadly, Imperial has yet to hit the damn table. Also on the 2011 list was Navegador, which did get played several times. I liked it enough to give at an 8. I did trade Nav away recently, however, to acquire a game I really wanted, more on that further into the list.

I liked the Rondel mechanic from my plays of Navegador, so I fully plan on playing Imperial, and will likely curse myself for waiting 2 years once I finally get it played.

Status: Played. Like. Will be in my favorite new to me games of 2013 list.

Also from the 2011 list and remains unplayed. I have read the rules, watched videos, etc and I just cannot see myself bringing this to the table with my limited understanding. I am not much of a card gamer and the fact that this is almost a traditional card game has kept me from getting it played. I bought this on a whim at my FLGS one day and have sort of regretted it. I think I am waiting for someone to teach it to me.

Status: Unplayed. Need to get the iOS version as Todd recommends.

Free game from last year's BGG.CON. Play interest: low. Will most likely trade it away unplayed.

Status: Unplayed. No interest.

The first of several expansions I have on this list. This was also free at last year's BGG.CON. Shogun is a favorite game of mine and I have played it sans expansion several times since acquiring this expansion. I haven't even read the rules, nor do I have any idea what this expansion adds to the game.

Should I try this or leave a really good game well enough alone?

Status: Played. Will pass on using this expansion.

I have heard this game is much better with the expansion, so I never intended to play this without the expansion which I now have...in German...sigh. A fellow BGGer has stated he is working on a file upload which will include scans of the cards in English, so I will print those out and mock-up my German cards shortly. Once this is done, it will most definitely hit the table.

Status: Played. Really liked it.

I acquired this along with the base game and the England and Whales expansion all at once during a live auction for a song. We have played the base game several times as well as the England version (using the advanced rules) but this one remains unplayed. I hope to get it to the table sometime, but there are too many other games higher on my list. I fear this will remain unplayed for a while yet.

Status: Sold!

I am not much of a thrifter but I try. On a recent day spent thrifting around Austin, I found a used but great condition and complete copy of this at a Half Price Books for $15. They also had a very nice copy of Pueblo, which I knew nothing about so I left that on a shelf. I know now I should have grabbed that as well.

I have a love hate relationship with Wallace games. I love Steel Driver and Brass and hated London and Rise of Empires. Many of his other games that I have tried were a little meh for me. Still, I have read the rules to Tinners' Trail and I think I will like it. Looking to get this one played ASAP.

I love Space Empires, but lack opponents. I pre-ordered this expansion a year in advance and pimped out my storage solution for this along with the base game, and it sadly sits on my game shelf. I would like to find a regular SE4X opponent who could explore the many options provided for alternate play in this great looking expansion, but I am not holding my breath.

Ok, so here is where the plot thickens. I make 2 orders a year with Collstuffic.com, saving my wants until I hit the free shipping threshold. Recently I reached the $100 level with this game, Yedo and Spyrium and threw in Rum and Pirates (all below) for shits and giggles. That turned out to have been a big mistake, because it caused the ugly head of my completism to rear. I realized, with growing horror, that my Alea Big Box collection would be brought to 7 games and that I would now need to have them all! After a month spent shopping and trading I have all but 3 of the 15 Alea big boxes...and none of the new games have received play.

Now, in the interest of complete disclosure, I don't even have Bora Bora, Rum and Pirates or the other two non-Alea games in the CSI purchase at this time. Bora Bora is holding up the shipment and I expect to receive them in the next couple of weeks. That said, I have plenty of other unplayed games on the list.

Played: Love it. I have been looking for a new game to lay frequently with the wife. Castles of Burgundy and Dominion are both getting old. I think this will be it.

This game has a pretty low reputation among Feld enthusiasts and on BGG in general. Still, I think the game has promise and sounds like lighthearted fun. I am keeping an open mind and expect to enjoy this one as long as I don't come to the table with any unreasonable expectations. I don't think it will be difficult to get to the table. Once I actually have it in hand, I expect it will hit the table fairly quickly.

The fist Alea Big Box game I acquired once the need to complete the set took hold. I traded Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery for this. A great trade for me as I hated that game with a passion. Now, to get this classic played...

Status: Played an 1/14/14. This is a pretty great game. Love the tough decisions, the lack of significant downtime and the short play time of about an hour. I can see this one getting a lot more play.

I lucked into a nice trade for this one, which goes for well over $100 in the Alea Big Box version, trading away two games I do not play and one I do play and like (Navegador) which I will have to re-acquire soon.

The trade was handled locally, so I did not even have to pay shipping!

Rules are read and I think this will be a neat little negotiation/trading game and cannot wait to get it played!

Status: Played. Love it. Possibly a top 20 game for me.

A quick search on Amazon showed this and Fifth Avenue available new direct form Amazon with free shipping. I got both games for $50.

I read the rules, and this seems like a really fun little area control game with a lot of shades of El Grande, which I really like. Plus, it has Mammotheeples! Worth it right there! I hope to get this one played this weekend actually.

Status: Played. I like it. El Grande light, but with about the same playtime, so not sure when to bring this out. The Mammoth-eeples are awesome though!

As stated above, I got this along with Mammoth Hunters.

I have read the rules and this seems like my kind of game. Very mathy, with auctions, action selection and careful card play. Seems like a lot of planning is involved. Unfortunately, this is not going to be a good game for most of the people I play with regularly. I will try to get it played eventually, but I am not going to push it.

Another trade. The user I traded with did not like any of my games on my trade list, so I bought a copy of Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game via an OLGS and had it direct shipped to him. Great trade for both of us!

Received in the mail today. Will read the rules this weekend. I love Rudiger Dorn games and expect this to be one of my favorites from the Alea Big Box collection.

Here ends my tail of Alea Big Box acquiring. At this time, I still lack Ra, Taj Mahal and Hoity Toity. If any kind souls reading this have the Alea box of any of these and would part with them via trade, please contact me. I am willing to think outside the box to make a mutually beneficial deal happen!

Status: Played.

Verdict: Undecided. I give it about a 7.5 at the moment, but we made a couple major mistakes in the rules. Looking forward to trying it again.

Caylus was one of my early designer games. To this day, it remains in my top 10. As such, William Attia is designer who I respect and expect great things from. Spyrium has received some good early press and it was relatively inexpensive via CSI, so I took risk. I expect this will hit the table right away once received. We will see...

Status: Played. Liked it a lot.

I have heard this compared to Caylus (yay!) and Lords of Waterdeep (boo!). It looks gorgeous and apparently plays well with two, always a plus for me as I am constantly looking for a game my wife will enjoy. I am willing to bet I will like it (a lot).

Status: Played. Not overly thrilled with it. Wife will play it, so it stays for the time being. Might trade it away.

Acquired via Ebay bringing the Alea Big Box collection closer to completion. I also picked up Taj Mahal, but I have played it before so I will not be adding it to this Unplayed Games list.

Status: Played it and liked it. Will have to play it some more to see if like blossoms into someting else. Jury is out on this one.

Finally got my copy of this rare printing of Hoity Toity, bringing my Alea collection to completion!

Desire to play: rather low. This was more to complete a collection, but since it is light I will likely get it played soon.

Status: Played it with 3. Not ideal at that count and we did handle one key rule wrong. Definitely want to play again with 4 or 5. I think it will be fun.

I have played this a couple time with 4 now and I have to say I really love this game. It is light and whimsical meaning you can play it with just about everyone, but is not lacking in insteresting choices. You can play it two or three times in an hour and a half and is always worth some good laughs. My new favorite light/gateway game.

Juan suggested this one to me, but we havent had a chance to play it. After looking at its BGG page and reading a bit about it, I realized this game is right up my alley. When it came up cheap on this years BGG.CON VFM, I grabbed it.

Desire to play: Very high! Rules read.

Status: Played on 4/29 as a 5 player game. I really liked this one. A great easy to learn but strategically deep game that plays 5 in under an hour? Massive hit for me. Sadly, none of the other 4 players were bowled over.

I like highly interactive Euro's and this one supposedly fits the bill.


Desire to play: Very high. Will try to get it to the table at the next Tuesday night game.

Status: Played on 12/3/13. Fucking amazing game. Not sure how else to put it. I am humbled by what the designer of this game accomplished. Makes me want to set my prototypes on fire and just play this game instead.

Initial rating after 1 play: 9 and likely to rise.
