Welcome to the
1 Player Guild's Collective Acquisition Disorder
February 2018 Edition


"Nobody ever said you have to actually play all these games!"


This GeekList exists so that all of us can discuss our recent purchases and share the fun we have braking our wallets. So, if you purchased a game, got it in a trade or even backed a Kickstarter this month, please share it with us! Other things are also welcome as long as they have something to do with the hobby (e.g. paints, craft materials or tools etc.)

Please just post one item for all your purchases in any month. You can always change the game you added as your main entry at a later date, if you wish.

If you need help on how to make your item look nice(r) please see the Forum Formatting Guide and the Tricks of the Geek GeekList.



Here are the rules:
mb You may only add one item per month but discuss an unlimited number of games in it.
mb Be excellent to each other.
mb Please refrain from posting links to Kickstarter campaigns to keep us in line with BGG's rules.



Most importantly:
Have fun!




Constructive criticism is absolutely welcome as there's always room for improvement. This feature is new and I'm sure that I'm going to make some changes/adjustments along the way. I'm determined to make this a place everyone of us can enjoy.

I am collecting a second-hand copy of the KS second edition tomorrow (with Showdown and the KS extras). I've had my eye on this game for years since it first came out. Now is the time!

Makes up for Amazon failing to fulfil an order for Flamme Rouge and the Peloton expansion.....

UPDATE 6/02/2018

I have downloaded the files for Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) and while the download is available here on BGG for free, Simon, the designer, requests that people donate a small sum to charity in return, so I have chosen to donate that to Cancer Research UK:



UPDATE 25/02/2018

Recently arrived this month: Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain and Star Trek: Frontiers – The Return of Khan pre-orders, then Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh (I love Egyptian-themed games), and Manoeuvre, a 'simple' wargame I've been thinking about getting for a long time, and which just came back into stock.

That's more than enough gaming goodness entering my collection for one month. Hardly played at all though due to working on a contract!

I'm backing this for the game only. Printed but not crafted yet. So much unlocked content!

I also intend to get:


I really need this, my Vale cards are currently stored in a tupperware outside of the box! We love some Mystic Vale on occasion, solid two player games with no interaction means good couple game


I'll be backing the professional printing version of the game plus Page Quest. So excited!


New stuff!


Get in my binder!


I'm interested and intrigued but not 100% sold yet.
Backed.


I really like my two Wizard Sets, I'm even using the d4 and d12 and d2 for KD:M! I intend to grab the set depicted in this image


On a whim. Not convinced yet.

When the Kickstarter goes live on the 13th, I'll be jumping right in. Also hoping to get the 2 expansions to Aeon's End: War Eternal that I'm currently missing.

Two other Kickstarters that I joined in January will fund (and therefor be paid) in the next few days:
1. Nemesis
2. PolyHero Dice - Rogue Set


2018-02-12 update

Lastly I'm considering late pledging for Deep Space D-6, but I'll see how I feel after a few gameplay video's

Decided to get in on the Gentes Deluxified kickstarter after they added solo rules.

Will probably join the A4 Quest kickstarter, I just think the shipping costs are very steep ($11.4 for a $22 pledge)

2018-02-28 Final tally
Paid for:
1. Nemesis
2. PolyHero Dice - Rogue Set
3. Gentes
4. CO₂: Second Chance
5. Page Quest / A4 Quest

Joined the following Kickstarters which will fund next month:
1. Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest (with Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 and Days & Nights: Red Army Pack)
2. Aeon's End: Legacy

This is a bit of a risky move on my part. Backing a KS for this and Normandy: The Beginning of the End, figuring I'll be able to play the latter game solo. Risk is 3 part: nobody knows how good this solo system is, they might be late delivering it, and I'm not super familiar with the War Storms Series-- it might turn out that it isn't for me.

I have done some research, and it looks interesting enough that this is a risk I am willing to take.

I'm not posting the link here, but the KS is open for at least another week.

Kicked the month off by picking up Race for the Galaxy: New Worlds Promo off the BGG store. whistle Well, and Shadows in Kyoto from the KS but that isn't for solo.

-Picked up the Valentine's Day Death Dice and Till Death Do Us Part model from the Kingdom Death Valentine's Day sale.

-Got some of the Ares Magazine solo games today (super hyped for these) as well as the next AH LCG pack. (Pic in comments.)

6. Board Game: Runebound (Third Edition): Unbreakable Bonds [Average Rating:8.43 Unranked] [Average Rating:8.43 Unranked]
I am in the purchase-free zone for the year, but I want to acquire this solo expansion to Runebound, so that I get more out of my copy. To be fair, my copy is also new, but a designed solo variant ... that has to be a good choice.

I will have to trade a few underplayed games that no longer work for me, but I think this works out the right direction.

2/1/18: February is shaping up to knock out a few of my Kickstarter slots on my buy less challenge. Fields of Green: Grand Fair caught me by surprise, though, as I didn't know it was coming. Since it adds official solo to a game I already own, I feel pretty good about it. Pledged for the expansion and the Kickstarter exclusives from the first campaign. Edit: And throw in the Cursed Ring promo for Roll Player, and some Mistfall promos, and a City of Iron promo (so I guess I'm getting that game sooner than I thought) from the Geek store.

2/13/18: Backed Aeon's End: Legacy on faith. I've been sick and haven't gotten anything played, including the base game of Aeon's End. Hopefully this weekend. Also backing A4 Quest and the Trick or Treat expansion for Ember (because I have everything else for it, after all). And I added some pretty dice to an existing dice pledge manager.

After my absence from the list in January, I'm back. Not in full force, though. There were some unexpected repairs that had to be done and that'll take me some time to recover from. But hey, at least we have a house and can repair it so who am I to complain.

I just bought some promos from the GeekStore, namely:

Dream Home: Promo Tokens – Christmas Tree - I just love to play this game with my wife. With the expansion there's an official solo mode but I haven't checked that out yet. In fact, we haven't even played with the expansion yet.

There was also another Terraforming Mars card, Penguins, which I had to buy and while I was at it I finally bought the Colony: FLGS Promo promo cards as well. Colony is a great game (with an 'ok' solo mode) and it's a shame that there's no expansion planned.

--

2017-02-04: I just ordered some supplies. A bunch of sleeves, some deck boxes, two dice bags and a fresh bottle of white primer (Army Painter, this time as I didn't really like the Citadel one I had before).

With that out of the way, the bigger news is probably that I pre-ordered the Clank!: The Mummy's Curse expansion. I just couldn't resist after seeing that awesome pyramid board on Renegade's Twitter feed (link). Which reminds me that I still haven't played my Clank!: Sunken Treasures expansion... well, it was (kinda) cheap and I'm weak like that.

--

2017-02-14: I couldn't resist the Kingdom Death: Monster - Valentine's Day Death Dice. They are just too pink for me to pass. I would've loved to also get an Archivist but I still need to keep things inexpensive.

--

2017-02-19: Last week my Thunderstone Quest Champion Reward was delivered, so I had to order a mere 45 packages of Standard sized premium sleeves. I went with docsmagic.de because they are half the price of FFGs and are almost as good. Since the next wave of the Kingdom Death Kickstarter is scheduled to be delivered in March I added 14 packs of FFG's Standard American sleeves to the order.

I’ve pretty much stopped buying games and am actively selling them off. Just got too many really. Also my game group are now buying a lot more games, where I used to be the main buyer.

However I still struggle to resist a bargain, so I just ordered Animals on Board when I saw it recommended for £10 ($14) including shipping. Mistake?

February for me started by purchasing Spirit Island and the expansion. I wanted to wait a while before getting it as in the last couple of months I spent tons of money for TMB and Undertow, then backed TEZ last month, Pulp Detective (and probably CO2 next week...and maybe Fields of Green? Ah...) this month...but I couldn't resist. A soloable heavy euro coop game with such a great theme? Can't wait for it to arrive!

That's what this month is going to feel like, or so it seems . . .

What happened?

I exploded!

Insert mushroom cloud. (Okay, that is my game shelf at the end of month.)

No, I finally decided what to buy, that I have been going back and forth on forever, and now that I did, all the ones I can't buy feel like the ones I should have. Oh well, in future, there will be another opportunity.

There's been other things, all coming together at once. So an avalanche it seems.

So I bought Fields of Green, Kickstarter version, from the Game Steward. Herbaceous, Kickstarter version, I added as well. Late Christmas. Kickstarted the expansion.

Friday and A generous bonus of handmade Micropul, are coming from ThroughtheDeckGlass, from the Solo Chain of Generosity. He asked me what Micropul design I would like, and I found one that reads better for my visual issues than the rest.

Takenoko is being Piffed to me. Thank you very much! Stands a decent chance of my daughter liking it.

Card City XL was offered in trade to me yesterday.

I keep thinking I am forgetting something . .

Edit: Micropul and Mini Rogue from TTDG

My birthday month is being awesome, especially since the only solo I got for Christmas was Oh my Goods. (I did receive some games from a generous bgger, one of which is already a hit with my daughter). I am going to watch or otherwise learn the unofficial Fields of Green solo before it gets here, and try to post a report before the Kickstarter is over, but I can't promise anything. I did not do fast shipping, so it could take most of the Kickstarter to get here.

My husband has likely a lot of overtime this month, so solo plenty.


I was given Nmbr 9 for my birthday!

Also, given $60 as well, which I have been pondering my options. Especially since I have been playing more, this year.
--------

The following are carryovers, one I should have mentioned last month and didn't.

I mentioned Petrichor last month, but it should likely arrive this month. Apparently next month . . .

Oh, I pledged last month for Postcard Dungeon. Thought it might go in the Happy Planner, unless it is too big. It's solo, and ultra portable. Can't remember when it arrives.

And so it begins.

But. I have had my eye on this game for so long.

It was time.

Come home, Dungeon Degenerates: Hand of Doom.

There's a spot on the shelf waiting for you.

------------------

I bought some containers to organize my games; two big ones and two small. I wish I had bought more! So. Much. Easier.

------------------

More containers. Wow. Seriously. What a difference. Set up and put away for Space Cadets: Away Missions takes no time at all.

I'm obsessed with finding more containers.

I MUST CONTAIN EVERYTHING.

------------------

Found a new game shop, kind of far from me (which is a good thing!), with an overwhelming amount of war games and rpgs. I walked out with a new set of dice and the $5 quickstart book for Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game.

Oops. February was supposed to be a "no-buy" month but at $8 and considering all the great things I have heard of this from the Rev and others I just had to.

But that's it. No, seriously. Maybe.

Barely a week after CanCon, which left my shelves overflowing with goodness and pushed me to box-up all my new-in-shrink games for storage. So of course I immediately succumbed to a PiF offer. Merchant of Venus in a beaten-up box was just too good to pass up!

I then built Mr. Cabbagehead's Garden, because the only thing better than 1 extra unplayed game is 2 whistle

My very first purchased game of the year. Bought it used from a BGG member for 10 bucks, shipping included, which is a good deal IMO. Curious to see how it plays and especially if it will cure my phobia of card games...

22. Board Game: Steam Donkey [Average Rating:6.75 Overall Rank:3642]

For the new year, I told myself to buy less and play more, but if that hasn't happened yet, I don't know why I thought I'd be successful now.

I bought Steam Donkey because it looks to be a good card game and Ricky Royal designed official solo rules for it so I'm curious. I got a reasonably priced copy of Limes from Amazon even though it's a German edition. I backed the game Lightning and Bolt on Kickstarter for a pnp copy. It's an asymmetrical coop game made by one of the designers of Vast the Crystal Caverns. He originally made it so that he can play a game with his toddler that included a easy character for her and a more complex one for himself.

I got curious about solo RPGs this month and backed Tunnels and Trolls' Elven Lords reprint/extra content. I don't know as I've not really tried high fantasy and dice modifiers before but they mentioned "mini-rules" for new people. Anyway it wasn't that expensive at the pnp level. My other purchase is in the totally opposite RPG direction with getting Quill: A Letter-Writing Roleplaying Game for a Single Player and All We Love We Leave Behind from drivethrurpg.

Lastly I fell for Agility a cute game about training dogs to do agility courses by the designers of Morels. It's a game for two players but I'll just play it two-handed while hoping some intrepid person makes a solo variant. I printed out The Solo System but I haven't looked at it so I'm not sure if I could use this to create an AI for this game.

As I figure out what I really like in games, I traded a lot of games I bought according to cult of the new newbie and I got Glass Road, Planetarium and Herbaceous.

In January I already did my "this is for my personal combined early birthday and Christmas present even though my birthday is in September and Christmas is about a year away!" purchase by putting in a late pledge to the Kickstarter Obsession . I'm an Anglophile and theme might get me over the complexity. It's got worker placement, deckbuilding, multiple solitaire opponents from novice to expect level, footman and housekeeper meeples and snobbery all over the place. After that big purchase and my budget, this month's purchases is more towards games I've been looking at for awhile or just fill a niche. But who knows what that Kickstarter search engine is going to show me in March?

I forgot to add the following! I discovered PIFF and through their generosity I received Spirit Island, Patchwork, Animal Upon Animal, Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island and essential gaming hits of cubes, meeple, dice and bits storage containers. I PIFFed some Terraforming Mars overlays.

I think I'm going to go on purchasing hiatus for the rest of this year so I can save up funds for the release of Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr as it's expected for Q4 of this year from Hub Games. There's not much description on it yet but what I've read has got me pretty excited.

Edit: I forgot to add some more stuff

Some Kickstarted and added on games arrived this month, but they were payed for some time / a long time ago.

Actual acquisitions in February:
- Legendary Encounters: A Firefly Deck Building Game
- Space Cadets: Away Missions
Firefly turned out to add nice twists to the Legendary Encounter series, I'm just a few games in, but they were fun. I am really looking forward to playing Space Cadets: Away Missions.

Plus I backed these games on Kickstarter:
- Greenland
- Seize the Bean
- Pulp Detective
