Taken from an entry on the Public commitment: Not buying new games in 2018 geeklist:



It’s funny how we all commit to not buying games by having provisos for buying games.

I gave up buying games last Christmas but managed to buy some, mostly around Essen and a couple KSs paid for before that Christmas.

This year I am planning on being harsher. These are my only exceptions:

1 Already pre-ordered North American Railways reprint by Surprised Stare Games

2 Already committed to QE (Quantative Easing) KS in 2018, but could drop out if I don’t like the graphic design of it - fun auction game

CC2 Reserve right to buy CO2 2nd ed. - I have the 1st

Any future expansions for Flamme Rouge don’t count!

Am I worthy of the Microbadge...?

M B

EDIT: I will get games only as presents as a way to meet the requirement of the geeklist and microbadge!

Now I’ve got to break it to my partner... cry

Got my name down for 1 of the 300 copies that will be available in the UK, so will have to get my partner to pay for this, for my birthday.

Due at the Brummie UK Expo.

Name on mailing list to be contacted before KS starts for a 3rd ed. Of this fun game. Played my mate’s wooden and ply board 2nd ed. copy of this auction game, this week.

Depends on graphic design. Not clear what media will be used for this KS version due. Happy for it to be in same format or even card, if it looks right

May be able to get this as a Christmas present but she’ll have to buy it in advance!

Reserve the right to get this KS 2nd ed. Hopefully can get my Mum and Sister to share the cost of this.

Need to research the rules and cost of this as I may not get it - I have the 1st ed.

Not the base game.

Should any further expansions for this game appear in 2018, I reserve the right to get them!
