This will be my 4th BGG.Con I'm looking forward to pick up games, game giveaways, seeing my most listened to PodCasters, visiting the expanded Vendors area and the BGG Store.

But I'm most looking forward to the HOT GAMES room full of goodness fresh from Essen. I need to be more discriminating in my purchases and I enjoy playing all the new games to make better informed choices.

I didn't buy CopyCat and Urbanization because I just didn't enjoy them last year. I did buy Al Rashid, Tzolkin and CO2 cause they were great. I would buy Terra Mystica if i could find it a reasonable price.

So here is what I MUST play before committing to buying since since every year more and more games are released than I could ever afford.

What are your MUST PLAYS?

Just based solely on the art and graphical design, I have no other rationale to want to play this. Paint me convinced.

Knizia has been on a decline. My absolute favorite game is Modern Art. I always give Knizia a spin.
