Joe recently got a gift certificate to purchase a new game. This is a list of candidates for his highly anticipated new aquisition. Comments and additions are encouraged. We have a group of gamers that currently rotates through Diplomacy, El Grande, Settlers, and Puerto Rico. Other games we own but have yet to play are Acquire, Torres, Carcassonne, and Vinci.

Princes of Florence. Seems to be on a lot of people's top ten lists. And it's a Kramer game.

Might be interesting to try a Michael Schacht game, and to get some auction-style game into the mix. Some of the reviews look good. Toss up between this and San Marco in the auction category.

San Marco. Is this better than Industria for an auction game? Another one with positive reviews. Looks good.

One of the games new from Essen that looks interesting. I've heard some comparisons to Settlers, which might be good for the group of people we play with.

What's the story with this game? Can you still get it through Mayfair or not? Anyway, most say this is Reiner Knizia's best

OK, might require the right number of people and it may be on the light side. But the production looks great and it might be fun to try a game by 2F.

Tried this one and love it. Might be even better with more people. Somewhat abstract, but good and short playing time to boot.
