So we've all gone through our collections of games and thought what type of game to get next? Do I go by genre? Is number of players important? Is there a certain type of mechanic I am interested in trying? Well i thought I'd approach it a little differently for a change. I thought I'd look at what games I want based on letters of the alphabet. This different way of looking pointed me to a few games that may have passed under my radar before.

So this list has the first game that I purchased for every letter of the alphabet + one number and is followed by the current game I am looking at buying for that letter. Now I still have gaps in my collection - I have no games for e, h, i, q, u, v, w, x or y but this list has made me add some to my wishlist.

What were your first games with that letter or what is your next purchase for that letter?

Edit: I am currently down to seven letters without a game.

7 Wonders has a lot of great reviews and I really liked the card passing mechanic as it reminded me of the Poker game Anaconda. In practice the game is not as good with only two.


1775: Rebellion

I have looked at a couple of beginner wargames and this one has come up in a couple of lists. I don't know how interested in it my wife would be but she might be ok with it since it is the revolutionary war.

Yes it is almost bingo. Yes it is easy. Yes it is a lot of fun. Sometimes you want to relax and play without using your head too much. I knew all of this and my wife and I have enjoyed the breezy gameplay.


My next A game will most likely be



Agents of SMERSH

A storytelling game would be a different experience from any I have currently and the spy theme would be cool. I know there are some issues with it but it could be worth it. Besides I am on the (wooden) fence about Agricola.

Let's go a little abstract here. This game is easy to teach. Easy to play and works for 2-4. It is a fine addition to any collection. I don't have it currently since I was unable to bring it with me when I move but it is a game that I will replace.





Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game

This one I may never get. My group is mostly just my wife and I and larger groups are sporadic at best. Sadly this must be played with more for the experience. However if you have a larger group with the time and willingness this is supposed to be great. Maybe if there is a sale I can sneak one and convince some people to play.

This is a great 2 - 4 player game that scales well. It is a beginner/intermediate euro style game that offers many avenues of scoring points. Surprisingly this is one of my wife's favorite games. She loves buidling the board. For me the only issue are the tile colors as since I am colorblind some of them are tough to tell apart. Maybe someday we'll get a revised deluxe version.


Cosmic Encounter

Another dream game. I think my wife and I would enjoy the bluffing but it isn't a game for two. Maybe if I can gradually work on people I know this will be one to get in the future.

This combines my Magic game background with my previous love of Poker into one package. Hopefully I can teach my wife to like it as well. It isn't easy to teach to someone with no CCG experience and even with those that do.



The Duke is my next D letter acquisition. Another abstract would be good to have and this game would fit the bill nicely. I could also take it to the beach and not worry about anything blowing away due to its nice chunky components.

This is the first letter that I don't have a game for in my collection.

However with a new reprint coming out soon (it still is right?) I am hoping to make this one my first. With its dice-worker mechanic I think my wife will really dig this. Do I have to mention how cool the artwork is as well?


Evolution

This however is my second go to E game. A card game that lets you evolve your animals to see who survives should be great. It isn't Dominant Species but we aren't ready for that yet.

This was the first game I purchased after I moved to my current location. I knew my wife would like it as it would remind her of Lost. I didn't know how stressed she would get playing it though. Even though we are pretty good at it she can only handle one game of it as she stresses so much about the island sinking.



Firenze

After I found out that my wife liked the physicality of seeing something built in The Castles of Burgundy I thought maybe I should get a game were something is being built. So I happened to stumble on this and it looks like a great underrated game. It is hard to find of course (out of print as soon as I started looking for it) but I am hoping for a reprint soon.

Now this cooperative game is gorgeous but very hard. I enjoy playing it but always have to play another different game after so I can at least feel like I have a chance of winning.



Galaxy Trucker

This is another game that I think my wife will like due to physically making something in front of you. I am not sure if the timed element will be too stressful or if the destruction of what you just made will be too irritating. I may have her try the app first to see what she thinks.

EDIT: My first H letter is purchased and it was actually a suggestion from my wife. My wife was drawn to the penguins and when I told her I'd heard good things about it she gave me the look that said I should get it.


This is the second letter gap that I need to get filled on the list.

Here is the next game I am looking at getting:


Le Havre
I have been ramping up some of the games to the heavier side of things and I think we can handle this. I think I would prefer this to other farming related games by the same designer.





Hive

Another abstract game and another one that can be played at the beach. I've heard good things about it but I worry how well it can balance with players of different skill levels. I am more than willing to give this potential H acquisition a try though. After playing Hey, That's My Fish! I might change my mind on the more abstract games. I will keep this one on as a reminder though.

The third second letter that I need to get filled in the collection.

I enjoy some games solo due to the lack of other players in the house and after seeing a good video of it I am interested. However do I spend money on a game that is only solo?

Or do I go for -



Imperial Settlers

This I can play solo or with up to four. I've heard it is good and I do enjoy card games. I do like Ignacy Trzewiczek's other game Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island and so am willing to look at something a little easier to set up and get played more often.

In my attempt to get other people to game I thought I needed a dice rolling game. Cartoony monsters and dice rolling. What non gamer wouldn't want to try it? It turns out a few people. Unfortunately it doesn't hold up well with just two people even with variants.



Kanban: Driver's Edition

Now this game has been calling my name. I am not a gear head or anything but the way everything seems to mesh together just tickles my fancy. Teaching this might be rough as my wife is rules impatient and just likes to get to playing. The theme may not be the most interesting for my wife either.

I had heard good things about this and saw that it was good solo as well as co-operative. So I thought I'd give it a try. Watching some play through videos has scared my wife away but I am getting the hang of it.



Lords of Waterdeep

My wife has issues with Dungeons and Dragons even though she is all over The Lord of the Rings and The Game of Thrones settings. So I will have try to get her to understand it is just the backstabbing intrigue of Game of Thrones but using characters from D&D instead.

This is a very light game but I wanted something easy to teach and play as we had a lot of company coming over. However this was never played at that time. So it sits and I don't know if we will keep it. I've thought about the expansion but I don't think I'm willing to purchase it when I can put money to a different game that we might like more.



The Manhattan Project

This will most likely be the next M purchase. A midweight worker placement game but has some direct conflict. Mage Knight Board Game has been considered but it is too big and long for me to get and honestly I'd be playing that one by myself anyway.

Now I heard that playing with two just didn't work but the wife and I have had plenty of fun playing this one just ourselves. It isn't for everyone this way but it works for us.



Nations

I don't have any civilization building games - at least not of this scale. So I am not sure if my wife would like this or not. I have thought about Nations: The Dice Game but that is still not readily available yet.

This game has been a hit. It is also one of the few games that anyone besides my wife will play at our house. However it still doesn't get played very often. So I probably won't get the Daybreak expansion for it.



Onirim (second edition)

This is a solo game with lots of options. It can play two as well but this would most likely be just for me. That is okay as my wife can be very busy.

This was technically the second Hobby game I purchased but it was the first one that got played. It is a fun game and as a nurse my wife really digs the theme. We even pimped out the game with vials and biohazard bags for the components.



Pandemic Legacy: Season 1

We haven't got any of the expansions or spin offs to the base game and we have only played it a few times. Maybe because of this we aren't burnt out on Pandemic and I think this is will be the next one we get.

Now this is my fourth third letter that I don't have a game for.

There isn't that many games that start with the letter Q. However I stumbled upon this particular game and it may work. The board may be a bit crazy and I am concerned about the colors so I will have to do some more research.



Quantum

This is the other one that I am looking at for the letter Q. It has some interesting ideas and decent reviews. Since it isn't a Star Wars theme I don't know how well the space theme will be accepted.

Rhino Hero

I don't have any dexterity games. I should and I think this one is going to be the first. It is light and accessible for everyone and will make people laugh. It also has a Rhino. What else could you want?

I actually purchased this and Sentinels of the Multiverse at the same time. Smash up is an ok game but it depends on who you are with. It would be better with more than two players. My wife also thinks it is very mathy. The base scoring should be easier to calculate. I have looked into the player matts with scoring for the bases using tokens or a d20. If we had that this game may be played more.



Star Wars: Imperial Assault

The force is strong with this one. A Star Wars themed dungeon crawler. D&D without the D&D and Sci-fi with a theme everyone is familiar with. It is only a matter of time before this will be greenlit.

This is a good introductory game. It doesn't get much call for plays though. My parents liked it and would play it again. It is really better with at least three players though.


Tobago

It is lighter game but I like the theme and the variations of the board. It should work well with two or more if other people are interested.

So this is the fifth fourth letter that I don't have in my collection. U is a difficult letter for games and even more for games that are actually available. This game looks pretty interesting but is hard to find at a reasonable price.

So I've also included as a back up



Urbion

This is a sequel to Onirim (second edition) and some say it is better. However a name change caused problems for the initial release. Now it is still hard to find and a reprint is up in the air.

This is the sixth fifth letter that I currently don't have a game for in my collection. I have a worker poised to purchase this one though. I am excited about it and hopefully it will be enjoyable and we will get the Tuscany: Expand the World of Viticulture expansion later.



VOLT: Robot Battle Arena

This may be another to get. It has robot programming but may not be as frustrating as RoboRally can be. For the first programming game to the collection this would fit the bill. My wife is very confrontational and so the attacking nature of this looks good.

This is the seventh sixth letter that I don't have a game for. War of the Ring could fill a couple of gaps for my collection though. It is two player only which is good but it is also a war game cloaked in Lord of the Rings clothing. This may make it acceptable to my wife who would be the person most likely to play it with me. The length may be a bit daunting though.



Walnut Grove

This looks intriguing. I don't have any farming games and I am not sure I want Agricola. However I think this is a good step in that direction. It may be a little harder to get but then both of these W games are.

This is the eighth seventh letter I don't have a game for.

Non star wars sci-fi space theme = potential non play with the wife. However this "sandbox" game has been calling my name. Of course I waited too long and now it is hard to get. Maybe that is a sign



XCOM: The Board Game

Now I love X-com for the PC going all the way back to the original. I have a couple of reservations about adding this board game to my collection. Real time and limited players. The app doesn't bother me but the stress of playing the game may be too much for my wife and I've heard this is unforgiving solo.
