Having just sold our previous house, we are about to become into a little money. A fair chunk is going on doing up the new house (needs a new laundry/bathroom) possibly some on a new car, and I am definitely getting a new gaming PC. But I will feel obliged to spend some on one of my favorite hobbies, board gaming. The likely candidates so far are listed here - I won't be getting all of them, but (so far) these seem to be my main contenders

Yes the most hyped game in some time, but it looks so cool! (Even if you have to try and source the miniatures separately) Doesn't hurt that I grew up on a farm too. Tho I don't think my life was as hard as the farmers in the game!

I love the original, looks like the expansion really opens up the game more. The wife and I have had fun with it but a first tabling with my other gamer friends wasn't quiet so popular (except for the 2 Zombie players who had brains to eat for weeks) combination of max starting zombies, hard to find firearms that only ever got one shot off before running out of ammo, and zombies that acted like Special Forces soldiers instead of mindless undead. But I am keen to give it another whirl with them.

The theme of this game scares the crap out of me, and it just looks so... playable. Being a 2 player as always is a bonus as the wife and I can play.

Really keen to get some expansions for Battlelore.
Despite the fact that its the most clichéd fantasy concept of all time, the thought of Scottish accented dwarves, now riding great big bulls, excites me. Er... you know what I mean.

I finally got World of Warcraft last week for an ok price second hand. I used to be a huge addict of the online game, but haven't played for well over a year now. Was a bit unsure if we'd like the game, but to my relief both my wife and I loved it (she wanted to play a second game the day after the first one) I 'd really like this expansion merged into my copy just to help stop it getting stale too early - or to quote from my online playing days "W00t more phat lewts!!"

Having also gotten Runebound about a month ago and having some fun with that, (both wife and gamer friends like it,) I want to get a few of the cheap expansions to keep it fresh (and yeah ok more phat lewts) I'll just list this one as opposed to clogging up the list with a whole bunch, but you get the idea.

Getting this may almost seem like OD'ing on fantasy based games (until recently I only had Talisman, and a couple years ago got Dungeon Twister) but it really appeals ( I was a D&D gamer long before I got into boardgames) It looks so pretty... on the other hand I still have not played Doom that I got over 2 years ago. But this does look better...

I have been eyeing this one for a long time. The 3 player minimum has held me off for now, but I love the theme, and have been to the real Colosseum, so very tempted.

My wife competes in equestrian events (although she has just sold her current horse) and my best-friend-as-a-kid's dad owned several Thoroughbreds over the years. We always went to the local races as a kid, I always found them great fun and exciting to watch - especially with a dollar each way on the favorite! Of course the fact that my grandmother always brought along a batch of her world famous (in Wairoa at least) Lamingtons didn't hurt either - in fact the races were excuses for huge feasts (and for the adults - booze ups!)

I really like the theme of this game and the mechanic seems pretty good by all accounts - on the other hand I don't think my wife would get into this so much and I really only have one other mate, a non-board gamer (but a huge PC Gamer) who would find the theme interesting.

Thanks to Steve for reminding me of this one - TtR was about the second board game I bought (after Settlers) when I got into the hobby a few years ago. Had been meaning to maybe get the Marklin edition (my folks have TtR:E so we get to play that at their place) Having actually been to Switzerland (admittedly only spending any time in Lucerne, but it was awesome) this would be fun, and a reason to play TtR a bit more as 2 players with the original isn't so good.
