Since I have pretty much stopped buying games at present (excepting Netrunner data packs whistle ), this list will have to suffice.

Adding a game to this list won't replace the FUN of buying a new game. But it will cost a lot less! laugh

And it will help me keep track of new-to-me games that I'm interested in. I'll be keeping an eye out for these to appear, across the room, at game nights.

I'll keep this list sorted alphabetically, and remove games if I've managed to play them if my friends have broken down and finally bought them, or if I have lost interest.

I think my tastes often overlap with the SdJ committee, despite all the crap they get every year.

I can't stand the artist for this (Dutrait), the culprit responsible for the laughably bad renderings in Augustus, Lewis and Clark, and Madame Ching. Also Elysium (see below). But looking at some card images for Broom Magic, this appears to be his best effort to date. He is learning hopefully to draw faces that don't look like Jason masks.

Neat-looking, but way too expensive for a speculative buy!

Exactly the kind of game that would have been an insta-buy for me a year ago. At this point, I feel like I have too many neglected games already with a similar game style. But I'd like to try it.

I love the theme of this. I've designed a couple games in my life (they all suck**). One of them had this exact theme.

**I've designed two games since typing the above that don't Suck. whistle

This kind of game makes me think of Legacy, which is another game that tells a really neat story. I have some worries about length (I'm reading about 3+ hour sessions, and that isn't my thing). But I'd give it a try.

I'm interested in the action selection mechanic.

Harry Potter theme. Cool.

Except of course that you're a bear. I don't want to be a bear. shake
