When my fiancé told me this morning that he currently has 10 different games on the way (from Amazon, Kickstarter, etc.), I realized it was time to make a list. I'll keep track of all the games we acquire this year, and then at the end I'll see how many times we've actually managed to play them. Hopefully the results will be helpful in guiding future purchases.

This was one of my purchases. I was intrigued as soon as I heard about the theme, and pre-ordered it when I saw how quickly it was tearing up the rankings. This was around October, but it took forever to arrive, barely making it before the holidays ended. That meant we didn't get to play much when we actually had free time, just fitting in a couple of games before work started up again. This is a long game, and probably felt especially so while we were just learning. It's definitely not something that comes out on a weekday night, which is when we do most of our board gaming. Still, I've committed to playing it 10 times this year, and I'm confident that we will reach that target eventually.

Price paid: $73.39 CDN (October 2013)

And another one of my selections. We played this once at a board game café in December, but with 5 players, it was long enough that we couldn't get in another game immediately. Which meant that if we wanted to play it again, we had to buy it for ourselves. (It's definitely much shorter with two.) I don't think this will ever be my favourite game, but it's probably a decent addition to our collection.

Price paid: $39.95 (December 2013)

Sold for $40 (November 2014)

Net price -$0.05

I know nothing about this game. It's an expansion to a game that I haven't actually played yet. One of my fiancé's purchases.

Another expansion ordered by my fiancé. But this time I've actually played the base game! It was enjoyable enough that I wanted to play again, and we've played a few times since. I'm not as super-excited about it as I am about some games, but it will still get a decent amount of play.

I had been mentioning that I liked city-building (in the context of eyeing Suburbia, but also when actually playing Tournay), and so my fiancé bought this game when he saw it for $8.

We've been playing a ridiculous amount of Flash Point over the past month, so it seemed reasonable to get one of the expansions, especially when it was only $15. It arrived today, and we played immediately played it four times. It's good value for the $15: there's a new two-sided board, which would add a lot of welcome variety just on its own, but each side also has some different rules, and there's an exciting new character too: the Structural Engineer, who repairs damage and removes hot spots.

Price paid: $15.41

My fiancé is an enabler. I was planning to buy one expansion, but knowing that we would want them all eventually, he encouraged me just to buy them all now in case they went out of print. This one was twice as expensive as Urban Structures, but it also seems to contain a lot more stuff; it comes with a full box, anyway, not just a board wrapped in plastic. I didn't look too closely, though, because I want to pretend that I got these expansions one at a time. This one went straight onto a bottom shelf, where it will hide for at least a little while.

Meanwhile, I have to confess that there's a third expansion scheduled to arrive tomorrow....

Price paid: $30.89

Two games was still not close to $100. So we added this one, because my fiancé adores Kingdom Builder. He figured he would buy this expansion eventually, but wasn't in a hurry because we don't expect it to get played that much (two-player games against the KB master are not particularly fun, so he mostly just plays on his phone on a daily basis). But I figured it made more sense to buy a game that we definitely want to own, even if only one of us loves it, than to take a chance on a two-player game that we might not even like—Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small was the other option, and I felt a bit uncomfortable with that because I'm not a huge fan of regular Agricola, so I'd rather try the other version before buying it.

It's cheap! So we managed to reach our $100 target without going significantly over. And this seems like something we'll want to own eventually. Portable, easy to play with any group of people, and so on. We enjoyed the couple of games we played at a friend's house.

And now we're really imposing a board game purchasing moratorium for the next little while (exception: Seasons expansion, when it comes out). There are still plenty of Kickstarters on the way.

Price paid: $9.50

My fiancé had heard good things about this one, and it was relatively inexpensive with free shipping, so he figured he might as well buy it. I'm curious to see how much play it gets.

Price paid: $40

Traded for TransEuropa + Homesteaders

With $12.35 shipping for the trade, so a total price of $52.35 for those two games. They'll have their own entries later in this list.

Did I mention that my fiancé buys all the racing games? So obviously this one falls into that category. But we've actually played this one once already since acquiring it. It was luck-based enough that I'm not really eager to play it again, but it was also quick and harmless, and the cars are cute. I imagine this could come out more with non-gaming friends.

Yay, we've been looking forward to this expansion forever, so we were super happy to find it at our previously-unknown FLGS on TableTop Day! (Where L = 45 minutes away)

We've managed to play it twice so far (I'm a bit behind on updating this list), and the second play was much better than the first. We had Io's Minions in our first game, which prevent you from gaining any crystals when they're in front of you (i.e., every other turn), and are just not fun at all. They've now been removed from the game, and things are looking up

This was also the last game on my original 10x10 challenge list that I didn't yet own, so it will be nice to be able to make some more progress there.

Price paid: $27.71

My fiancé won this in a raffle on TableTop Day. It's probably not something that we would have chosen for ourselves, since the reviews say that it's more educational/historically accurate than fun (apparently whaling is hard work and not particularly enjoyable), but we'll try to give it a chance at least once. Except I feel like I should read the book first, which is a bit of a hurdle....

We bought this at the FLGS on our way out, since we had played the Discoveries version there during the day and really enjoyed it (or at least, I really enjoyed it).

We played through the whole deck of this one the next day, and while it wasn't quite as much fun (maybe because it's better with more than two players, or maybe just because the atmosphere wasn't the same as at TableTop Day), I'm still glad to have it. There are lots of historical dates that I wish I knew, and this will be an enjoyable way to learn them.

I sometimes think my fiancé buys too many board games, but in this case I'm fully supportive of the purchase: this was only $20 in a local pick-up auction! And I think I'm generally much more in favour of games that have been played and approved by BGG voters than I am of random Kickstarters.

Hopefully we'll actually manage to play this; it's longer than our usual evening games, but we do play games on weekends occasionally....

Basically copying my comments from the What We're Playing GeekList:

My fiancé picked up this game for $5 in a local auction where he was already buying something else, and at that price point it seems like a pretty decent purchase. It's a light dice-rolling filler, but it has a nice element of city building, and I think it plays even faster than the promised 15-minute playtime. We probably won't really play it much, but we did play it three times when it first arrived, and I liked the second and third games more than the first one—it didn't seem quite so random once we knew what we were doing.

Price paid: $5
