This is a list of games that are highly regarded, that I don't own, but that I am interested in owning.
Who rates them highly, is more a subjective decision of mine.

I'm going to avoid expansions as I only want the list to focus on base games.

Got a recommendation that I don't already own, but isn't listed here? Feel free to suggest it in the comments at the bottom.
Also, feel free to "thumb" the ones one the list that you approve of.

Thanks

(HRDO = Highly Regarded, Don't Own)


Edit: In the interest of keeping this Geeklist relevant, I've decided that as I acquire games on the list, I will remove them from the list. At the same time I will add new items.

This "war game" has been on my radar for a long time. If it wasn't for the cost, it would probably already be in my collection.

So nearly bought this on it's release, but Agricola doesn't get enough play, and whilst this plays solo, I have also recently purchased Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small. Very tempting.

The "grandaddy" of worker placement games?
At the very very least, I need to play the game.

Plays well with 2 I'm told.
Is this being rereleased in 2015?
I'm not sure of the "look", but maybe the gameplay will sell me on it.

This comes highly recommended.
My concern is that I've heard I shouldn't play this 2 player. I've also heard that for some the game takes forever to play, whilst others can play it in a shorter time. It's also not good with AP prone players.
The idea of the game certainly appeals though.

All the buzz of post-Essen in 2014. With Stronghold Games due to release their version this year, I'm sure it's going to be a popular game.

Arrived this weekend.

I've not tried Le Havre, but have played and enjoyed Harbour, which has been described as Le Havre light.

I have heard good things about Inland Port.

I recently saw Rahdo run through for this, and have to admit it sounded good. I nearly got to play it the other day.

Another game I don't know too much about, except that I've heard good things. And the game comes with co-design pedigree too.

I've been on and off about Russian Railroads since I first heard about it. I nearly bought it in Essen,but for some reason didn't. My concern is that I've heard people say that once you've played it a few times, the desire to replay dies down.

Played this a couple of times, and for a light filler, I really enjoyed it.

Birthday gift.

Played it on BoardGameArea, enjoyed it. Could be good with kids.
But is it too "gateway"?
It does have a Panda.

I've actually played this one. I love the mancala mechanism. Must have this in my collection.
