What? Oh, what shall I play?

Entered, of course, for me to keep track of what I'd like to play and anyone who might care to comment.

Most of these games are probably going to be from this year but I don't get a lot of chances to play new games. It would probably be a lot cooler if I listed obscure, divisive games that have some intellectual or important internal meaning for me. I'm just not that brilliant.

Also, this list will be entirely too long. I reserve the option to lengthen it at will.

I love the cube tower in games. And this has tile placing exploration which I also love - a la Entdecker and Goldland.

But nobody talks about this. It must neither suck nor rock. Still, I want to play it.

I'm a fan of Ingenious - I played a lot with my folks for a while quite a few years ago. I haven't read the rules and I don't know if it plays partnerships. That was the main draw of Ingenious and still my preferred way to play.

If it's available. It might be too much added complexity for what it is but reviews seem favorable. Either way worth a try.

What looks like a classic Knizia romp. I've been missing that. Glad they scaled back the nude, coming-of-age theming and doubled down on the blue.

Update 11-2-18: I picked this up in Minneapolis last weekend. I might get it to the table before the con. If it's good I'll be happy to teach and play some more!

More hits than misses for me in the Alea Big Box line. I'll always try them out.

A nice looking abstract. Reminds me of older Ravensburger games that are accessible and pleasant to play.

This should excite me more than it does. I'm adding it because I think I might like it but I suspect I really won't. And for what reason I don't know - just a gut feeling.

Another train game from Hans im Glück and one of the designers of Russian Railroads, which I like. This uses cards, mainly, and is good for 2-4 players. One of the complaints people seem to have is that the game isn’t long enough. This is almost always a boon for me. Race pressure is something I really enjoy.

I don't think this will be something I need to own but I'm curious how it plays compared to others in the series.

I own all the other games in the series. Haven't tried this yet. I'm sure Greg P. would oblige me. I think we're both famously bad at GIPF series. Maybe it's just me.

I'm terrible at Backgammon and haven't played in years, but I used to enjoy it as a young teen. The card play here looks like it would be a fun twist! I wonder if it's even in the library.

I managed to somehow miss playing this last year even though everyone spoke highly of it. I think maybe there was burnout on the original and there were some new versions out.
