Title is self-explanatory. The reason I'm using this instead of just keeping the built-in wishlist at BGG is because I feel I should write down why games go to the higher priority categories or down to the "thinking about it" limbo after I read a review, for example. The idea is, whenever I read a new review, listen to a new opinion or even play one of the games, I add details to each item.

I need to read more about this one before making a decision. Most remarkable comment was about the fact that each faction plays very different, but somehow the designers made a terrific job in balancing all of them. The fact that the game has the Route/Network Building mechanic also helped - the only games I have with that mechanic are the simple ones such as Ticket to Ride.

Update: I finally played it. As expected the game is a bit overcomplicated for what it is, but I enjoyed playing it and it didn't feel too long (but it is long, I must say). Anyway, it's not something I'd buy, but I'd play if invited.

When I mentioned the fact that I was still not much impressed by Feld's games, a friend of mine told me: "try Burgundy then: it definitely looks like the kind of game you would like". I guess I need to try it, then.

As a big fan of Mac Gerdts, I know I must give this one a try. Most comments are about how this game would appeal to a larger audience than, say, Imperial, while still being a clever design with serious strategical decisions. I own Imperial and Navegador and the first is played much more often - mostly because the setup for Navegador is longer and also because my wife hates games with zero conflict. And also of course because to me Imperial is a better game anyway (one of the few I would rate a perfect ten)

Update: played it (see comment below)

I used to think economics themed games couldn't be fun until I discovered Imperial. This seems to be a great addition to that genre.

Update: got it. With one and a half plays, I already think it is a great game indeed.

I feel I need more Kramer games in my collection, and this is considered his greatest classic. Also, it makes me happy to see it bravely staying among the top 30 games even though it was designed in the last century, given the cult of the new effect (7 Wonders ahead of Tigris&Euphrates? Really?)

Update: I have played it and enjoyed it, but I guess there are other games with these mechanics that are higher priority, such as The King Is Dead (or its previous incarnation König von Siam)

Usually, I don't buy two player games. It is very very rare to find an opportunity to play them - I used to do that with my wife (we actually played a lot of 2p Carcassonne), but she got a little bored with 2p gaming. So the only strictly 2p games I own at the moment are fillers. I do have one or two friends that could probably play a long 2p if in the right mood, and I don't have any wargame in my collection. I have no hope of finding people to play the long ones with enormous rulebooks, so this may be a good idea.

Even though the only game from Wallace I own is Tempus, I'm eager to know his other designs. And I'd like to have a "train game" which is heavier than TtR, but not so much that I couldn't find people to play them such as a 18XX.

Update: Got it (January 2016)

Update: it gets even better with Steam Barons, to the point that I rarely consider playing it without this expansion.

I love Knizia's classics like Tigris&Euphrates and Modern Art, and from what I've read this seems to be a great one as well.

Update: After playing it and confirming it was an amazing game just as I expected, I had the opportunity of buying the beautiful Überplay version (I'm not too fond of the more recent one). Another great buy.

My Poseidon is being played much more often than I anticipated, and although I'm enjoying 1856: Railroading in Upper Canada from 1856 a lot (by e-mail), I feel it may be too much for my friends tastes. It seems 1830 has simpler rules, but perhaps I should also look for those in the 1829 branch.

Update: Played it on the web at rr18xx.com. Although I'm aware this is not the best way of assessing a game, it seems to me there's really no reason to get this now that I own 1846.

2018 Update: After a few more plays I'm starting to enjoy it a bit more. However, it is still clear this is something I couldn't get played at all here.

I can't remember why this left my wishlist (I'm pretty sure I must have added this back in 2010 or something). Anyway, I guess I should put it here: it is regarded as one of Knizia's greats, and there is a Brazilian version around (but with very ugly pieces).

I added this one because my wife likes the mystery/investigation theme, but we don't have any game that really implements it properly. For the same reason I added Mystery Express.

A Splotter game with amazing ratings, but I never really read enough reviews to have an opinion to get it out of the "thinking about it" limbo.

Update: I played it and enjoyed it quite a lot (see comment below for details).

I'm a big fan of the Civilization theme, but I find it unlikely that I can gather friends around a table to play a 6+ hours mammoth game. It seems to me this is the "big civ" that is most likely to work for me and my group.

Note: not that this would be a short one - entry lists 4h
