So we have all had this happen once in our lives. You hear about a game, and you think to yourself, "Yeah I really should pick that up!" then every time you are at the shop it sits in front of you and yet, it still sits there. Maybe it's too much, or you had unexpected expenses or that book you had on pre-order forever FINALLY came in, so my question is what was the game, and what kept you from it?

I keep looking at this, I even put my old 4th ed stuff up for sale since I never got to run 4e, I thought "why not it looks great!" and yet every time I went to the store I had something else come up. I tried Star Trek Attack Wing, and then spent a few weeks buying a fleet (or two) and then The New Battletech came into our store, then KAMBE& Little Wizards (which I can't wait to try on my kid (once she's old enough!) and then Bam 4th Doctor Sourcebook! Some time soon, or 6th will be out one or the other!

looks really good but I already read the edge of the empire and am not sure when I will be able to play or run this.

Almost kickstarted it, but Didn't have the cash now I see it on the shelf and keep thinking "maybe today" but so far, no go.

I had to back out of this kick starter due to the financial reasons and I still have yet to play the original.

Okay, so I keep a private geeklist of games I'm considering purchasing. However, making it onto this list seems to be the kiss of death in most cases. It seems like I buy games that I decide to buy outright without ever putting them onto this list. The list also holds future releases that I'm tracking but I often don't buy these when they actually come out.

I did buy Star Realms which was on the list and I'm really enjoying it.

Pros: Beautiful game. Solid mechanics. Blocks. Theme.

Cons: 2-player games really don't get played by me although that might be getting fixed. The larger blocks have been known to cause issues with seeing where stuff is exactly at. Noted one side being harder to play than the other.

It refuses to leave my wishlist, but it never seems to get higher up than a second tier type of wishlist game.

I've had this in my cart on Amazon for about 2 months..I've already got all of Morrowind and Oblivion, but I only have vanilla Skrim for 360. Getting this would let me play Skyrim (and all the DLC) on my laptop even when the wife is watching TV. It'd also let me do Arena and Daggerfall...Plus if I buy it now on Amazon, it'll be just over $35 and I'll get free shipping. I just haven't been able to do it.

What's it going to be then, eh?

This looks like one of the few interesting Euros that doesn't have some theme pasted on top of yet another worker placement game and THAT is what attracts me to it!

I am not the biggest fan of Euros (I am primarily a wargamer) but this one has intrigued me since I first heard of it. And if I do play a Eruo I want it to be on the complex side and this one seems to hit each of those marks. Yet for some reason, each time I am at my LGS playing I pick up the box and don't take it to the counter and plop down my money.

I would like to play this before I buy but I have a feeling this will be arriving in my collection sooner rather than later.
