"It's time for the monthly list of new games that you acquired in November 2013. These don't have to be new games that came out, but games that are new to your collection.

Feel free to list what games you acquired this month. How you obtained them and if you think it was a good deal. Let us know if they sit unopened, have been played many times, or you traded away after just one play.

You can subscribe to this geeklist here:

Want other great monthly geeklist? Try these listed below:

What Wargames do you have on your table?

I did this to post my gathered stuff from November, which was my biggest month of this year. If Ron posts his I will copy my material and fold this one up.
I hope all is well Ron and you are just to busy for this.

My only eBay delivery for November was this game and a copy of Seven Pines (missing the information counters, rest unpunched).
$26 winning bid for both games.

I went to a local game 4 day game convention and sold lots of game, but I did pick up three new to me games, including this silly die tossing dungeon crawl game.
Also Hermagor & Skyline 3000.
Those two I bought as a package. I always liked Hermagor. I have the original Capitol, autographed by both designers, so thought I would get this as a throw in.

I received an copy of this in time for the gaming convention. It was fun to play and worked well in the bar area, but the dice flicking gets much worse as the drinks keep coming.

Woot! Z-Man games had a contest on Facebook with the winner getting a fresh copy of the 2nd edition. Out of nearly a 1000 entries, I actually won something. I have since played Terra Mystica 4 times, though my copy is somehow still unpunched.
Very good game!

I will update the photo when all is better on BGG.
My wife was at a thrift shop and called to ask if I wanted a copy of this game. I asked for the description. She said bookshelf game made by 3M. I have a copy bought new in the '70s, but had a feeling about this one. I had her grab it at the $2.99 price.
My feeling were good on this one, it is an unplayed copy with the wooden tiles still sealed in their original bag! Box is in VG condition too!
------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary for November:
15 games and 2 expansions
7- wargames
3 Kickstarters (plus one failed Kickstarter that they honored Kickstarter pricing)
1 -Contest Winner! (WOOT!)
A very busy month indeed.

Was disappointed we weren't able to grab the LoW expansion at GenCon, we grabbed this at first availability. Looking forward to busting this out at Gregorfest, my annual board gaming day with my buddies during the holiday.

Also snagged the LoW iOS app, which is absolutely fantastic!

Probably the best game that arrived and got played last month was this solitaire historical simulation. This one is really great and was the first of its kind in my collection. Still working through the early stages of the game, but it is actually quite fascinating and "fun" to play.

I picked up a couple mini-expansions this month: Survive: Escape from Atlantis! The Giant Squid Mini Expansion, Survive: Escape from Atlantis! Dolphins & Dive Dice Mini Extension (to fill out for shipping), and Carcassonne: Die Windrosen (in Speilbox). None have made it to the table as we were pretty busy the past few weeks.

Picked up The Downfall of Pompeii at my FLGS and we loved this one when we had a chance to try it last month. Can't wait to pull it out for guests this month.

Stopped at another LGS that was celebrating an anniversary with a special sale and grabbed a copy of Myrmes for like $20--closer to what I could justify for this one on my wish list. Not played yet.

We ordered some gifts and I added Carcassonne: Winter Edition to the order. We love Carc so it did not take time to play it. I have a feeling we may use this even with a few expansions--we can just call it the "spring" edition.

After waiting a long time for this KS, both Freedom: The Underground Railroad and the "bonus" 1775: Rebellion arrived while we were on vacation. The latter was supposed to come along to play, but was not here. I've since managed to enjoy learning the former one this month and look forward to trying this as a coop.

This was probably the most varied month of new games.

"Take me out, to the black, or your bottom... I will smack..." Yeah, enjoyed the show but not that much a fan that I can remember more than about half of the references in the game. I enjoyed my first play of this, and I'm now going to revisit the show - and introduce it to my wife. The game reminds me of Merchant of Venus due to it's setting and mechanics, but actually feels considerably different due to the firm sense of theme and the card-play. Solo game runs too short, but everything else - by rumour and reputation - will swallow an evening whole. Setting it up again in the next day or two. Keen to explore it further.

Quarantine
Enjoyable enough and not too fluffy. I haven't been able to get this on the table since first play, but this is one that needs more than two to grease the mechanics. Special tiles have a fair impact on the gameplay, but the randomness can become an issue if you're the one person constantly being hammered by greysles.

SOS Titanic
I've not been that kind about this - nor some of the reviewers who have gushed inanely over it. It's Patience. With chrome. A touch of "emperor's new clothes" about it - and that should be a phrase that leaves a bad taste in a few mouths after that load of nonsense kickstarter. I tried it again yesterday and was almost immediately stitched up by the randomness. Given set up time and fiddling, I had to ask myself why I was bothering. Lovely components though, but is that enough?

November was a big acquisition month. I've never noticed this list before. I've subscribed as it might be amusing to track.

Don Q und der Dreh mit den Windmühlen was a fabulous addition to my library. Since only 31 official copies are in existance I feel very special in being allowed access to one. Better, this game is quite fun, and quick.

Nieuw Amsterdam - I got a 1st edition copy of this game at a reasonable rice due to the re-issue coming out now. It has been a definite hit with the game club. I like it too, although I may be slowing down after 5 or so plays.

Ogre, Ogre and more Ogre - I got my kickstarter order. 2 copies of the game. I punched one, and then gave a friend the other one. I then decided to buy a fan-made copy in a charity auction. I love this game system, but admit that the new larger than life edition bugs me. I had ordered the "classic counters" and am building my own set of boxes for OGRE/GEV to omit using the giant box, the giant 3D ogres and the odd flying wedge conventional counters. I do look forward to playing with the fan-made edition. It looks awesome.

Trick of the Rails - A friend in Japan helped me to get a copy of this scarce game. It has been played a few times to good reactions. I am thinking this game will hold up for quite a while.

Railroad Dice/Railroad Dice 2 - By request a friend brought down his copy of Railroad Dice for us to play together. I enjoyed it so much I promptly found a RR Dice package deal here on BGG and got the entire system for my collection.

Skarabäus- This is an obscure Edition Perlhuhn game by Reinhold Wittig. As time goes by I am increasingly having fun exploring his designs.

I love Space Hulk and I love Japanese themed games. As a result, his appeared on my radar and as out of print I had a look to see if anyone had it for sale here on BGG and luckily enough there was someone wanting to be rid of this gem.

Shortly afterwards I am playing an absolutely superb skirmish game involving demons, ninjas and assorted Japanese martial artists.

What's not to love in this game?

This is the other game that I picked up during the GMT Fall Sale. I'm not usually too keen on squad-level games but the price for this game dropped to 25% of what it was selling for a month before.

I've played Combat Commander and found it too chaotic for me. I've also played Conflict of Heroes and found it too chess-like for me. I was hoping that this game would fall somewhere between the other two and I'm happy to report that it does.
