$200 from GSG

An amazing game which I previously owned in prototype form but sold due to my likely inability to get it on the table. That hasn't changed, but I decided to take advantage of Jeff Heuer coming to town and order it at the cheapest price you can get it for new.

$160 from AAG (co-owned with Will Parker).

After years of trying to play the medium regional scenario with other people's copies at cons, I realized the only way it was going to happen is if I finally ordered a copy myself.

I waited a year after my first play to be able to order this, again from Jeff Heuer for as cheap as it goes for new. I'm hoping the lite version is playable in an evening so I can get it on the table.

€60 at Essen

I didn’t actually plan on buying any 18xx games at Essen, but I totally should have. I learned Wolfram and Lonny are both there and they take preorders for their games. I saw a copy of 1848 sitting on the shelf that I desperately wanted, and some other games I also kinda really wanted. I ended up just buying 18BL, Marflow’s newest title, and getting playtest copies of 18DO and 1895 v2.

A game that people told me for years I would like, but the price and availability was never appealing. For this price I was willing to give it a shot.

I haven't been particularly interested in trying this, but replacing two obnoxiously sized boxes for one is a step in the right direction. I think I'd be most interested in trying this solo, and maybe I'll end up liking it opposed as well.

This game piqued my curiosity as it is well rated by people whose opinion I respect (namely Mark von Minden and Cole Werhle) and involves heavy coopetition, which I always appreciate.

I was a big fan of this game in its prototype form when it was still Little Pig, and I even convinced the designer to let me have one of his prototypes. When I saw this for reasonably cheap I couldn't resist.

$90 shipped from BGG.

I'd been on the fence about this game for a while. It is a favorite of JC Lawrence, and our tastes in 18xx usually align, but its extended playtime and ideal player count meant it would be unlikely to get on the table for me. Curiosity got the better of me when I found a cheap(er) copy on BGG.

I survived Essen without buying much, and I was able to resist Korea’s Modern Art with the gavel, but I could not resist Oink’s version. I love that I have a tiny version of this now.
