Just like the description says.

There are a number of games that I'd like to play and wouldn't pass on them, but aren't on the list for one reason or another, like:

Amerigo - I'll play it eventually, since the Cult of Feld is strong in San Antonio,

Terror in Meeple City - I suspect this game will be ubiquitous in several months.

Also, everyone is aware of those games. And, it's my list. So there.



Looking back at the games I played last year at BGG.con:

I own 4 out of the 31 games I played, of which I owned 2 before the con and had preordered 1.
My favorite game that I played last year at the con was Ginkgopolis.
Now my favorite is Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar with Ginkgopolis coming in no higher than 5th.



Without further ado here is my list presented mostly in the order of how much I want to play them. Most want to play at the top.
