Hello! I've never done a GeekList before, and I know that there a a million and four other GeekLists out there like this, but I'd really like some help.

Since I've gotten married, I haven't been able to buy very many board games. Discretionary cash is at a premium.

Last week was my birthday, and I got enough money to put together a CoolStuffInc free shipping order.

My problem is this: I don't know what to get. And I don't know when I'll get to buy any more games, because there's a baby on the way (due in March.) So I really want this order to be good.

Please give me some recommendations. My wishlist and ratings list are up-to-date.

Basically, I want games that I will like and that I will get to play, therefore relatively short play-times, or feasible solo options are a plus.

I added a few games I'm considering, so if you have comments on them, I'd welcome it.

Thanks for your time and your help!

The solo option in this one is appealing. And it seems fairly simple and non-competitive, which should appeal to my wife.

This is a challenging game that features exploration, deck building, and resource management. It plays extremely well as a solo game, and sits at a unique junction between a Euro game and a thematic combat game. This is one of my favorites!

I can also second the vote for Field Commander: Napoleon.

Great solo game from Victory Point Games, and thankfully it's NOT one of their States of Siege games (which are all basically the same game). You travel around the oceans of the world pursuing your goals: attacking ships, creating political unrest, exploring, et al. I love this little game, and it's cheap, too!
