Over the past few years I have gone a bit crazy buying board games so this year I have decided to slow things down. I will only be purchasing two new games this year. Finding games I want is easy. Narrowing the list down to two will be hard. Here are the ones I am looking at:

I have recently (in the past year) discovered the joy of German games. This one sounds interesting and might be a good bridge between my serious gaming friends and my casual gaming friends.

Carcasonne was a huge hit with our casual gaming friends so I'm hoping that this game will appeal to most of the same people. The mechanics seem to be similar but with a different twist.

I have wanted this game ever since I saw it on the insert that Milton Bradley included with my copy of Axis and Allies back in 1988. Eagle games will be re-releasing it either late this year or early in 2005. If it slips into next year then I guess thats one less game to worry about in 2004.

I was looking at my collection the other day and realized that I don't have any good science fiction themed games (Risk 2210 dosen't count). Anyone know if this game is playable in 3 hours? I don't want to waffle too much on this beacuse TI second edition is already impossible to find in stores. If I decide I want it then I should get when it first comes out.

This one I'm not too sure on. I love the Axis and Allies series, but most of my friends do not. It will probably be around for a while so perhaps it can wait until I find some other A&A fans to enjoy it with. Theres no point in buying games that are just going to sit on the shelf and look nice.

I am very interested in this game, but I have to wait and see how it turns out. I know some LOTR fans who refuse to believe that there will ever be a good war game based on this subject but I have high hopes for this one.
