Last year saw 24 games come in and 14 go out. I've currently got £200 sitting in my PayPal account from those sales and that's going to be my budget for this year (supplemented by any additional sales).

Excuse: a rare impulse purchase! Someone mentioned it on the UK board games facebook group, I looked into it and it sounded right up my street - just cards, simple rules, interactive and not bad to look at. Pretty cheap too.

Total spend: £11

Excuse: I always have my ear to the ground for little card games and I liked the sound of the Tichu-meets-Bohnanza play here.

Excuse: a few geekbuddies started mentioning this as unique and innovative. Made up a nice combined shipping amazon.de order with the above.

Excuse: a trade inquiry for Kupferkessel Co and Mai-Star. This early Dorra sounded a lot of fun and that impression proved correct.

Excuse: I'd always been curious about Keltis: Der Weg der Steine Mitbringspiel and Chris Wray gave this new spin on it a very positive review.

Excuse: might as well split shipping from amazon.de over a couple more games and Hanibal recommended this tricktaker. Chris Wray had good words for it too, just after I ordered, so that was reassuring.
