Now that the gluttonous feeding frenzy of consumerism that is Christmas is over and the dust has settled from all the crazy year-end bashes, it's time to get greedy. I've compiled a list of the top 12 games I didn't receive and/or purchase in 2003 that I will hopefully rectify in 2004. One game for each month of 2004, in no particular order.

Maybe I just like the title of the game and it's publisher. Or maybe the concept of Anti-Clue just appeals to me. Either way, I want it.

I hear good things about this game and a friend just bought it. Maybe I'll have the chance to play soon and confirm my need.

It's on a ton of these lists and it sounds very interesting.

This game seems like it should be required for anyone who wants to become a member of the BGG community. I'm behind the curve and I don't want to be.

Another almost perfunctory addition. I need to build up some geek cred.

Heard about this game in the Feb 2004 issue of Games magazine. Seems light, looks well-made (nice bits) and has a cool mechanic. I'm sold.

What a great concept. I wish I had thought of using translucent pyramids as gamepieces. Plus, I totally dig the fact that the pawns can be used for countless games of differing complexity and time investment. Genius in its simplicity.

A game that causes as much discussion/furor as Fluxx has to be owned. I want to see if it's as good/bad as people say.

I'm shallow. I like the way the cards look.

I like Mamma Mia, but hate the fact that only 5 people can play. My hope is that Bohnanza's bean-y game (with the expansion) will keep 6+ people just as engaged as Uwe Rosenberg's pizza-making game.

A game I actually had in my hands to purchase, but didn't get.

A tiny box. A required, low-level knowledge of world history. Time travel. 'Nuff said.
