Well, after a long time of just buying stuff from Tanga, I finally made another Free Shipping order online! Last time I picked up a bunch Killer Bunnies stuff from Cardhaus.com among some other things. This time though, The Great Dalmuti was on my to buy list, and Cardhaus didn't have it.

So, it was a battle between Fair Play, Game Revolution, Boards and Bits, Funagain, and Game Surplus. Nothing against Thoughthammer, they look great, but I'm in TX and don't want to pay sales tax

Thus, starting with Great Dalmuti, I worked my way through my Wishlist, etc, and this is what I came up with! Good choices?

I think so

One of the few games I've played a TON but don't actually own. My standby gamer girls have this, and yet I don't. We play it a lot when we get together and love it. So I finally got one for myself so when they're not around it can hit the table! Easy, pretty, fun, and supports a lot of people! Wins for me!

Finally decided to pick this one up. After my boss told me about his enjoyment of it, and I wouldn't have pinned him has having a game like this, I'm going to trust the hype!

Has been of interest to me for a while, and has been sitting on my wishlist, and if Tom Vasel reccomends it, I generally feel pretty safe He's my go to reviewer, even if he does tend to like everything, his red text blurbs and the beginning and end help me tremendously gauge whether or not a game is for me!

Another game that I probably saw on some other geeklist, thought looked cool, and added to my wishlist. And after reading reviews and whatnot, decided, why not?

Any reason not to?

Drakon's been on my wishlist since 2nd edition, and with 3rd edition getting better reviews, yay for me I reckon! I'm a medieval fantasy lover, so this looks great to me!

While I didn't purchase this specifically, working through Fair Play, I learned about this after my order of course. BUT! I intend to make some custom A-E cards and use Apples to Apples cards for the other cards. I reckon that will work fine for a while The rules seem pretty straightforward, so I'm looking forward to giving it a go!
