MY WISHLIST

My wishlist hasn't been updated for a while, but here it is:

1 Pillars of the Earth, The: Expansion Cards
1 The Pillars of the Earth - The Expansion
1 Agricola
2 Duel in the Dark
2 TZAAR
2 Railroad Tycoon
2 Roads and Boats
3 Ticket to Ride: The Card Game
3 Race for the Galaxy
4 Nexus Ops
4 Byzantium
4 Funkenschlag - EnBW Edition
4 Hamburgum
4 Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition
4 Ys
5 Caylus Magna Carta

If I would update it now, all I would add is Stone Age and maybe dump Hamburgum. OK, OK, I'll update it. Done.

Your wishlist uses priorities:

Priority:
1 - Must have
2 - Love to have
3 - Like to have
4 - Thinking about it
5 - Don't buy this for me

It can be found here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewwishlist.php3

My "Thinking About It" mostly means: this looks really interesting! I should look in to this. Or: I've been to lazy to read more about this... So most of these games are going to be added to my collection at one point. Now: what do others recommend?

GEEKBUDDY GAME RATINGS

So, what do my GeekBuddies think? I've selected a lot of them on ratings and comments. What do they have to say? These are their highest rated games:

Agricola
Die Macher
Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
Age of Steam
Paths of Glory
Race for the Galaxy
Rommel in the Desert
1960: The Making of the President
Brass
Lord of the Rings - The Confrontation: Deluxe Edition
Twilight Struggle
Tales of the Arabian Nights
Extrablatt
Galaxy Trucker
Thebes
Pandemic
TZAAR
Imperial
Struggle of Empires
Battle Line
Republic of Rome, The
Modern Art
Civilization
Showmanager
Combat Commander: Europe
Commands & Colors: Ancients
Shogun
Tichu
Hammer of the Scots

I've thrown out all expansions (quite a few Age of Steam expansions) and Settlers:3D and Settlers:Travel and this is what I get.

Agricola, Die Macher, TZAAR, Race for the Galaxy, Imperial, all very interesting. Tichu, Modern art, Thebes, Galaxy Trucker, wouldn't hurt to look at these some more. LotR:C? Blech. Shogun? I've got Wallenstein. Republic of Rome? CC:E? HotS? Rommel? Hannibal? I don't think I'll ever get those on the table...

Of course, you pick your own GeekBuddies and they might give you some good recommendations, they might not. What weight do you give them?

FRIENDLESS CRAZY RECOMMENDATIONS

But wait! He also provides Crazy Recommendations! "Totally new recommendations algorithm based on similar game characteristics" Yeah, sure. I never understand half he is saying. I just enjoy reading all the Stats. The Crazy List:

El Grande Expansions, the
El Grande: König & Intrigant
Keythedral
Australia
Clippers
El Capitán
Cuba
El Grande: Grandissimo
Hollywood Blockbuster
Canal Mania
Freight Train
Phoenicia
Fische Fluppen Frikadellen
Fury of Dracula

This is a Crazy List.... I own Keythedral and we have the El Grande expansions. But maybe El Capitán? And Fury of Dracula should go on my Wishlist. Phoenicia and Canal Mania? Hmmm... Maybe not all that crazy?

NOW WHAT?

Probably nothing. You already know what you want. You don't need lists filled with the usual suspects. Games you know you'll never play. Games everyone is talking about. Hot New Shiny Games.

Of course there are going to be Hot Games on these lists. High ranked games. Games with the same mechanics. But sometimes you'll find some interesting stuff.

Of course, it confirmed I need Agricola. And Race for the Galaxy. But I've never shown interest in Yspahan. Maybe I should. And Age of Steam? It appears on most lists! Bohnanza? Modern Art? Arkham horror? I've got work to do!



SO: WHAT DO YOU REALLY NEED?


It might be Agricola...
