I do want to learn one or two games before school starts. I also want to play more of some games that I'm really enjoying right now. Also, I want to get some older games played again. I recently reorganized my new main gaming shelf where I can easily look at my favorites.

EDIT: Grasshopper is someone who has considered me a mentor both in gaming and other areas for years. He leaves for college and I note the 4 tops on his list in addition to my personal list.

PLAY MORE

Players = 2
Time = 30 minutes for single game ... 1 hour for both sides

I can't wait for the lunar cycle but I am getting a bit overwhelmed to be honest. I still haven't really looked at Honor and Profit yet.

Officially #4 on grasshopper's list because he wants to play it more.

Such a hit. Well, the last game was a total flop. I want to get one more in before "grasshopper" leaves for college.

#1 on grasshopper's list... He told me this evening.

#2 on grasshopper's "before I leave for college" list.

EDIT: We got this played on Monday, July 28 including a new player to our group who long term is going to fit in just fine. I can see his younger brother coming when other games are played in the future such as Summoner Wars.

LEARN

Players = 1-4
Time = 1-2 hours


I read the rules once. I need at least one solo play before teaching it to others. This is a high priority as summer seems the ideal time to focus on this.

This one is such a hit I wish someone else in our group had a copy so we could have two games going on at once. Seriously it is that popular right now. Fortunately, some of them can also teach so I don't need to monitor this ... Well ... Long story.

I hope this one ends up working with the rest of the group. I have one two player game in and. I really liked it. Some might get intimidated but really the board is well designed and the cheat sheet also helps.

I really like this now that I have some of the expansions. I hope to recruit others to play it. Seems like I can get in at least one per month at my FLGS but that isn't enough for me! My nephew played it once. I might show to our church group.

This is likely an unofficial #5 on Grasshopper's list.

LEARN

Players = 4-10
Time = ?

I already have some people interested in playing it. The trick is I might gather more people during the school year than now. I need to simulate solo play first though. That will likely be difficult. I might use minis / toys to be the couples so I can keep track for my first play through.

Some requests here. I also am considering Chicago Express and Airlines: Europe. They seem similar in weight.
