The month started in the middle of a local game convention. I traditionally post a geeklist detailing the games I've played and the games I've obtained there.

I needed a couple of weeks to recover from the convention. But when I resumed, I started by obtaining some booster packs from the Clone Wars set as I continue my efforts to complete a full playset of this game.

A purchase off Consimworld brought this game. It was one of the few remaining Avalon Hill wargames missing from my extensive collection.

Tired of collecting over the years, I finally caved in and just purchased the remaining single cards that had been missing from my collection directly from Columbia Games.

In order to qualify for free shipping for Archipelago, I also wound up getting one of the most wanted games in my wishlists for a few years.

While I'm dealing with a damaged game issue with them, I'm still very thankful to

Another purchase on CSW got me another copy of Civilization. I may just keep the counters for the game's Imperial variant, which requires a double countermix.

First was this. I already have TWO copies of the game, but BOTH had been missing the same component (a synopsis book of Shakespeare's works).

Also the in the trade was an Avalon Hill copy of this golf game. Quite a lot of box for very few game components.

The trade included another odd-ball AH title. I had owned this one in the past, but had parted with it before committing to collecting AH stuff.

Rounding out the trade was a copy of this game. I've long been fascinated with the double-blind games from GDW. This makes 2 of the 3 titles now in my collection.
