This is a list of games that I would love to give a try. This list is not a wishlist - many of these games are games I am curious to find out if I'd like, and some of them I'm mostly curious about because of one or two mechanics.

Sounds like an interesting, very thinky, game. I'm not at all certain I'd like it, and I know my Significant Other wouldn't - but I would like to try out how it works.

An old game, but it sounds like it has some cool features to it. I like the idea of a war game that isn't all about being an overdog, but in which the underdog can still get some points. On the other hand, it might be frustrating to be playing a really good game, and then see someone else win by drawing lucky missions.

This game sounds interesting. A good mix of building and confrontation. Also, I like the idea that there are a significant difference between each faction. The fact that you need to raze buildings to build certain other buildings means I'll have to learn to let go, which would probably be good for me.

This could easily go on my wishlist.

It sounds like a really interesting game (and a Kennerspiel to boot). A clever twist on a worker placement game, random setup and diminishing returns sound like it will make a very enjoyable experience.

Dominion is a favorite in this house. Kingdom builder... I never got it, but I didn't play it much either. Either way, Donald X. is a very interesting designer. And this sounds like an interesting concept. I'd love to try it out.

Race for the Galaxy was a very challenging game, though a bit brain-hurty. The dice version might be really good, providing an engaging experience of strategic decision and second guessing - or it might be a horrible mess of randomness. There's only one way to find out.

I'm very curious about this. I'm not a big fan of zombies, but the idea of a cooperative game in which each player has their own secret mission is very compelling to me. It reminds me a bit of the roleplaying game Geiger Counter, which has been a favorite of mine. If it can replicate a little of that feeling, it is bound to be a blast.

Besides, I'm a sucker for games that tell stories - and it sounds like this game really tells a very gripping story.

Right. I was not entirely sold on this game when I heard about it. Well, now I've seen a review of it. I'm still not sure I'll like it - the review left me feeling a bit confused concerning how the game is actually played. However, the game seems interesting. Now I'll just need to find out whether the game is really so confusing, or whether that was just the reviewers.

I have this on my shelf - and I am so, so curious to try it. I love the idea of a storytelling game, and everything I've heard tells me that I would really enjoy Android. Unfortunately, it seems it's also a game that is difficult to wrap your head around, takes a long time and works best if you have someone who knows the game to help you understand it. I need to set up a session, but it's a bit difficult to find the time.

This sounds like a very fun game, and I'd like to fiddle around with all of the tiles. The Master Builder mechanic sounds like a great way to not make an auction, but still let players set prices depending on game state.

Sounds like an interesting strategy game. The programming mechanic I usually associate with games like Robo Rally, but here it's used for strategy. Also, the victory mechanics sound like an interesting take - there's not one score you're worrying about, but three different, and the interplay of those determine the winner.

I'm a great fan of Bausack/Bandu, and this seems to fall in a similar vein to some extent. I'm probably really bad at it, but I think it might be a fun experience nonetheless.

Saw a preview video - sounds like a lot of fun. More light and more chaotic than regular Pandemic. I think it's also more difficult to "remote control" other players, something that is a real risk in the regular game.
