So its the end of the summer and I'm updating my collection here on the Geek and I begin to realize how out of control I am. We've been trying to cut down on our spending this year since we're down to just one income while Kevan is in school. I guess I need to stop blaming his frequent role playing book purchases when I've bought 20+ games over the summer. Well here's the list of what I've bought over this summer in the order of purchase, sort of.

This really isn't a part of the problem, since it was my prize for winning the Kniziathon.

This one was bought by my other half, he is such a sucker for vendor demos. His real contribution to our problem is the 1000+ role playing books lining the wall of the den.

Played this at Kublacon and liked it so much I stopped at Endgame on the way home and picked up a copy. This starts the summer's buying binge.

At Kublacon someone told me about MeetUp.com and a group that was meeting in Sacramento (my home). I looked it up as soon as I got home and found they were meeting the next night. Went and played this, bought it a few weeks later when visiting a local hobby shop.

I needed more filler games, especially that play 5 or 6 or 7 players since both groups I play with are regularly having that number of players. This sounded fun and it turns out it has been a hit with everyone who has tried it.

I've been wanting to get this since I first heard of it a number of years ago. So glad it's been reprinted. Played it a couple times and like it though you really need to be wide awake and sober to have any chance of winning.

An impulse buy. I was in the hobby shop and though they have hundreds of games couldn't find a single thing to buy. This store is so overpacked with stuff and was full of loud shoppers and I was getting claustrophobic. I needed to find something to buy, saw this and bought it thinking it was Cape Horn. I was feeling like I really needed to get out of the store, but my competitive drive made me buy something so the trip wouldn't be for naught. Havn't tried it yet.

Was back in Oakland at Endgame and was planning to be frugal and just buy a couple card games. My other half saw there was a new Alea and pressured me into going ahead and getting it. Something about I'd be way disappointed and hard to live with if I didn't get the new Alea. Played it and liked it, though Kevan it turns out, doesn't ever want to play it again.

It's August and I'm feeling cranky. I'm on another "special project" away from the office. It's now been over 3 months since I've been at my normal desk, I'm beginning to feel that my staff won't even know who I am. On top of it I have a chance to get a new job that I really want and they are taking forever to get around to doing the interviews. So to easy the anxiety I go on the web and order a couple more games.

At ConQuest in the dealer room and unlike Kublacon there is actually a dealer there with a selection of board games. I've been looking at this since it was released, back when GameKeeper was in the mall and selling a number of interesting games. Why is it that corporations buy out a small company and then run them into the ground? I don't know why I hadn't bought this before, but I got it now.

The other half purchased this after playing it in a demo. Bought the Bell Bottom Badasses too, though that's not in the BGG database, I just tried to get my first geek gold by adding it. Played it last Monday, it did not go well. With the right group I think it could have been fun, with the group Monday it wasn't.

This last couple weeks have been tough. I got the new job, but my current boss is insisting I stay a full month before starting the new job. I've been gone from my normal duties for 4 months and she wants me to come back and get stuff cleaned up before I leave. I salve my frustration with a round of Web purchases. This is the first to arrive
