There are way too many games available, compared to cash (and space!) available for them. I've been using my wishlist to keep track of games I'm thinking about (or decided not to purchase), but I think a geeklist is probably a better way to handle this. Advantages of this approach: I can re-order the entries such that my higher-priority games are at the head of the list; contrariwise, I can drop games to the bottom if I'm not impressed after one play but don't want to delete altogether. Also, if I have some user- or group- specific note for the game a geeklist comment won't show up on the game's comment listing.

This particular list is games that I'd like to "playtest" with my regular gaming group. (More than likely somebody in the group already owns the game! Check the Sacramento guild members' collection for example.)

Played once at ConQuest Sacramento #3, looking forward to another game! Found a new copy on the BGG Marketplace for $10 plus ~$6 for shipping.

Three plays so far. I definitely need to get this to the table more often!

Barb brought back this Swedish game when she visited there in 2006. I've played twice with my family, but I'd like to get this out at a Sacramento Boardgame Meetup in the future.

Got to see this being played quite a bit at ConQuest Sacramento #3, but didn't actually get in a game myself.

Played at the Arden-Dimick library game day. I'd like to play at least a few more times before buying a copy. (Besides, maybe by then it will be back in stock!)

I got a copy for my birthday, but so far I've only managed to play ~1/2 a game with my buddy at work.

I've played this a couple times now, still trying to get my head around it.
