Hello, basically this is list with the games I am interested to get, but as recently I've purchased A LOT of games and my budget for games is very tight, I cannot get all (actually by the end of the year I can get only 2-3).

From the games I have (about 23) most are euros, but I love some euros and hate others. I don't like a lot pure cards and deck-builders, I mostly play with 4, sometimes 5 players, and twice a month 2 players with my wife. I like heavier games, but the groups I play with usually I not keen on such, depending on time frame and complexity of the rules.

The games we play most often for now are Disc World: Ankh Morpork, Lords of Waterdeep, Tobago, Hanabi, Pandemic, Zooloretto, Fresko, King of Tokyo. Recently I got Tikal and Thurn and Taxis, but still haven't played them. I also try to keep my collection varied in complexity, theme and game mechanics and not get too similiar games. For example I have Tzolkin (which I still haven't played due to its higher complexity), Waterdeep, Dungeon Petz and Fresko, so I try to refrain from getting more worker placement games unless it appeals me very much and have some additional interesting mechanics.

A lot of games that I want highly are not in that list due to low availability, high price or because are too similar to games that I already got, or I think the groups I play with may not like them much. I order the games in order of price starting with lowest (including shipping to my country), as I want to try to get as much games and bang-for-buck ratio.

If someone wants to help I would like to know your experience with the games, probably better alternative, like some of the games, and everything else you would like to share

I'm reading a lot of good things about this game, and now-and-then we don't mind quick card game. It's also very cheap.

Looks quite flat, but due to varied objectives and also varied maps (which I like as game element) may be better than expected. Also the rules seems simple which is advantage. Currently super-cheap at amazon.de, which makes it almost mandatory buy.

I like the theme of cooking, and specially italian. I think the game is good, although I read about some balance and replay-ability issue, but we usually don't play 1 game very often, so I think it will fit well. Also currently quite cheap (~18 EUR)

I like the visual appearance of this game, and also liked Tsuro, but thought that is too simple, while Indigo seems to have more meat. I don't have similiar game in the collection. Also quite cheap (15 EUR) and good combination with Kingdom builder (and probably bohnanza) for free shipping.

Seems interesting combination of roles selection, resource management and worker placement. Although I try to avoid much worker placement games, this one looks different enough, and I like the theme although it sounds overused. Also cheap (~21 eur) in local store, so I won't have to wait for it a lot. The BGG rating is kind of low, but I read good reviews (from Bruno Faiduti and a couple more). Seems very good in terms of complexity and time also.

There is duality on the opinions on this game, but overall sounds interesting. I don't know how much it may feel similar to Tikal or Tobago, which I own.

I don't have a lot of dice games, but I have Castles of Burdundy, and I'm concerned if they will not feel similar. But Burgundy has quite some downtime with 4, and the possible actions are different, so may be Alea Iacata Est may be worth the shot. Still not expensive (~22 eur)

Seems interesting, and great comments on it by rahdo. Also fits well with order combined with Kingdom Builder and Bohnanza as a combination of different enough games, the issue is it's german version, but I hope icons are good enough to make sense. Priced at ~23 euros which is reasonable. As a bonus you make whiskey as a resource, and I'm a fan of single malt

Caylus was the first worker placement game I played, and I was wowed by it. But lately when I play it it feels too tiring, mean and not-fun enough. Spyrium looks lot different than the usual worker placement games, but the minimalistic components (not having board) puts me off, also the auctioning may be too mean for the likes for the people I play with. Still good price for a newly released game at about 23 eur.

Honestly I don't know much about this game, but there seems to be a lot of buzz about it, and it's ranked very high. Mid-price range ~26 euro.

I liked Alhambra a lot the first time I saw it on tabletop, although it looked a little light for my taste. Still now I am concerned if it won't feel a little similar to some games I own - like Zooloreto, Carcasone, Tikal, (Castle of all seasons if I get it) and a game I really like to have (but impossible to find) Colloseum. Family box's expansion may give it more flavor and move it in a bit better complexity level, but it's mid-priced at about 27 eur.

As we like very much the chaos and screwage in Discworld: Ankh-Morpork, I'm looking for a game with similar feel. But the game I would really like is Survive: Escape from Atlantis!, unfortunately not widely available and very expensive. The downfall of Pompeii seems nice, but a little bit more abstract and carcason-ish. Overall I find it expensive for what it is (31 euro), but maybe putting "people" in the Volcano will feel good enough

Yet another worker placement, although it have the interesting getting old mechanics and pleasant theme, the price (33 euro) and similarity to the other worker placement games I have will make it a no-go.

LoW is a hit with every group I play, specially with my colleagues who want to play it every time. So I'll get the expansion sooner or later, but still the base game is not worn-out (maybe putting the expansion too soon may be overwhelming for some novice players), and also I can buy 2 full games instead of this expansion and I like variety (~34 euros)...

I like Pandemic much, but I wanted to like it more. May be the expansion will move it up. Yet maybe I'll wait before getting it, when I feel my collection is big enough. Also I have about 4-5 plays on Pandemic yet, so it should not be worn out yet.

I've played it about 2 years ago and was fascinated by it. Still as a friend has it, and I hope I can get it temporary, also it's not too cheap (34 euros) and has the issue with best strategy, I think I'll pass on it for now.

I would like to get a story-based cooperative game with simple rules a lot, but I'm not sure if the other players will like it. It's expensive (41 euro), and also as it's in Bulgarian It will be very hard to trade it away if it doesn't go well. Otherwise seems very good quality and art too.
