Well, this year, I really, really decided to slow down on picking up new games. That has sort of worked. At least, I'm not picking up 3-4/month like I had been when I first got back into the hobby. And, we continued to try and play through our game collection while also trying to play things 2-3 times when we brought them out over a month/week.

I tried to keep track with semi-annual lists of new games in our collection, but now I feel like I have to scroll through my own geeklists to see how long it has been since the game has languished.

So, I am pulling them all together here to keep track of which new games are in my "to play" yet. I figured having them pop up here in some sort of ranking would at least help navigate them better. Nothing like playing a new lower ranked game after a higher ranked one and being told "I don't think this is very good". But since ranks seem to change more with new games, I decided to try sorting this by "average".

Mostly, this if for my own tracking. But I suppose if you want to weigh in on something that needs more attention, thumb away!

I think I'll delete them from the list when they get to the table. That will help make this an ongoing process.

Not really a game I had on my wishlist, but when I saw it for $20 at a Target discount rack it was a no brainer. It looks like a deeper Feld-like game which should sit well once we work our way through it a couple of times.

I managed to pick this up on vacation a while back and thought it would make a possibly more interesting addition to this game. I love Keyflower, my wife was not as convinced. But now we will need to replay the base game and then add this in after relearning it.

Another weekend pickup from our CON trip. I was glad to see it available and the discount from the weekend was helpful to get this map addition.

Here is the companion expansion to the KS game as well. It will be great to get to this as well--most likely I will have to run it solo far before we get to adding more to the other base game.

As part of a buy 2 get one free, this and the Asia map were a no brainer to grab. Got the latter to the table first. This will likely follow soon.

I KSed this game mostly because I wanted to support Academy Games' productions. It plays with minimum of 3 which means its table time will be rare. My fingers are crossed though as I think once we walk through a game with people open to the experience we will enjoy this a lot.

The latest Feld game to look forward to at some point here--with Luna still on the to-lay list it may still bump ahead.

This was on my wish list but I doubted I would pick it up. A good pre-Essen sale this past week made that possible. Now, the main issue is that I am hoping my wife will like it as she did not care for Keyflower. It seemed like this was more streamlined and perhaps less obtuse. We can only wait and see.

A more recent KOSMOS game with its Stone Age theme. Looks great, but it is in German--didn't read that carefully when I saw it on sale...lol....but my friend speaks German so when he comes to visit he can help us navigate the cards better. I think overall it will be pretty easy once we get an idea how it plays overall anyway.

This was a "freebie" so it may be on this list a while as it also needs at least 3 to play. We tend to like Knizia games and have several of his other card games for groups so it is hard to say if it will stay or not.
