Yeah, I bought a lot of games at Gen Con 2004, but there were loads that got my attention or that I wanted to buy and I had to come back without them.

I played a demo of this one and it was great! However, buying a box was expensiver than buying the boosters separately. Next day the box was down to $100, but I still think it was too expensive. I'll wait a bit to get it at a reasonable price (like $90 or something).

I was looking for a 2 player game, and seeing the wonderful theme of this one, i wanted to buy it. However, I was getting a lot of games from Fantasy Games, so I was hoping for them to make me a discount. They refused, so I thought it silly to buy another game anyway.

I played one demo and it seemed pretty fun. It had great reviews here, too. After playing the demo, I went to a shop where I had seen it cheaper, but it was already sold. Somehow, that made me lose my drive to buy it. I dislike the idea of someone getting a better deal than me! Maybe I could try to get it in a few years, I have loads of games to test, anyway.

Why was Cheapass selling their games more expensive than their retail price? I cannot understand these guys.

I hadn't read anything about this game before going to the gen con, but it seemed colorful and with fantasy theme. However, it seemed text-heavy, and some of my friends aren't too good at english. The seller was a bit too agressive for my taste, so I decided to pass on this one. For now.

I was about to buy this, but decided to delay the buy for the next day. Then I forgot about it! Seems a pretty fun card game, with easy rules. Maybe the next time.

This was one of my most wanted games, but I couldn't find it anywere. I know you can buy it online, but shipping costs are too expensive. Pretty frustrating.

Yeah, they had this at the show! Being a game inspired in Black Morn Manor, I was very eager to buy it, but sadly, it was a "coming soon" game. More frustration!

It was impossible not to notice this game! It seemed amazing with all those miniatures, but I was too loaded already and it was difficult to fit it in my travel bags. I also feared the set up was too large for my table, and since I had no references, I decided to leave it alone. Now I regret it, since it seems everyone likes it.

Card game in space with up to six players? Very tempting, I would have bought it along with Confrontantion but... well, I'll keep an eye on this one.

They had this for half the price (plus taxes), but after buying Age of Mythology and Attack! with his expansion, this was too much weight.
