I just placed my order for May. Two expansions and a new game.

Feel free to comments your thoughts, feelings, tips or tricks! Take a look at my collection and feel free to leave suggestions for June's purchase. I try to keep orders as close to $100 US as possible.

The new game of the list.

Our group loves theme and story. Fortune and Glory was a huge hit because of this and this game seems to do what F&G does, but better.

As a bonus, my wife doesn't care much for many games, but she loves the Arabian (and Greek) fantasies and I think that she'll get a kick out of this game.

Tales won out over Descent 2nd Edition, Eclipse and the Dominion Big Box. I already have Descent 1st Ed, and with the Conversion Kit 2nd Ed would be cost prohibitive. Also I want to see Mansions of Madness get more table time before getting another Overlord game. I don't know how Eclipse will resonate with the group. A lot of us our fans of 4X-style computer games and Eclipse has the player count we would like. I loved Dominion when I played it and my group loves Legendary. I also worry about the lower player count preventing it from getting more table time.

It helped Tales that there were only two left in stock and I didn't want to have to wait for another stock.

BSG has been our most popular game. We play this game probably 3-4 times per month. Until today, we've only had the Pegasus expansion and we're starting to itch for some more variety.

I did a lot of research and thinking about this or Exodus and settled on Daybreak because it seems to have the most value. Exodus will probably be added to the collection before the summer ends.

I've been really excited about the new thematic large ships for X-Wing. We have a fairly large group (usually 6 people) and X-Wing dogfights tend to be long and tedious with that many players. I have been considering doing some of the various scenarios and I think the new Cinematic game rules will create a more dynamic game play for more than two or four people.

I still haven't ordered the Imperial Aces expansion because X-Wing hasn't been getting the table time I wish it would. Depending on how the transport is received, the Aces will be added shortly.
