Gearing up for the holidays and Secret Santa programs, I tend to slow down my game acquisitions.

But first of all, a completed trade that was arranged in September. I'm now the owner of one of the scarce religion-themed Avalon Hill games.

I'm most thankful for the trade with

It took several emails, but I was able to obtain a replacement box for my copy of this game. It had been damaged before it was shipped to me.

There are items other than AH titles that I've acquired.

An order from CSI included this, the latest expansion for Battlestar Galactica.

To bring the order up for free shipping, I added two sets of dice for Formula D. This game gets a lot of play in from me, and having extra dice will help make the game move along a little faster.

The order was filled out with 22 (!) older counter trays from defunct publishers. IMO, better trays from SPI, WWW and TSR than what's currently available.

Also got some plastic stands for a copy of Red Storm Rising that I have.

Today I received SIX different packages.

The first had a 3M edition of Go. Only a few titles left for me to get to complete my shelf of 3M Bookcase Games. Then, I'll worry about getting Jati.

With go came another copy of this game, in the 3M, full-bleed art cover. It's an uncommon variant package, and the first of these that I've obtained.

Topping off this order was a copy of the Avalon Hill General magazine with this variant to Origins of World War II. The magazine was all messed up, but the perforated game pieces were intact.
