My collection thus far.

For better or for worse, I couldn't resist some great sales at Toys R Us, and ended up with a lot of "classics" (read: mostly sucky games that the general public thinks are the only board games that exist; bleh), but hey, why not have them around anyway, huh? At least until I run out of room...

I jumped when I actually saw this, the Trilogy Edition, for sale at Toys R Us, promptly paid $30 for it, got it home, and have yet to play it. And now I never will because War of the Ring has completely superceded it. I think I'll give this one away.

I love "traditional" Neuromancer style cyberpunk, and everyone raves about Netrunner, but for some reason I just can't get into card games at all. I was stoked when I discovered the existence of a cyberpunk board game, and promptly bought it for $12 on ebay. Not a bad game once you read the rules several times, think about them, read them again, ponder them during the day, read them again, and finally read them again.

Can't say I'm too crazy about point systems in games. "Let's see who won! OK, 1,2,3,4... oh wait. I miscounted. 1,2,3,4...."

However, this game captures so many Wild West scenes and situations that we all enjoyed it immensely.

Why this game has such a low score boggles my mind. I'll never understand how it can be lumped together with Monopoly and Risk. Great puzzle of elimination and bluffing.

So far, this one is turning out very well. Clever mechanic to keep the fellowship hidden while moving, and brilliant way of keeping the Shadow player from just stacking up units on Mt Doom awaiting they're arrival.

Stupid guilty pleasure. Here's a "strategy:" put all your ships in one place except for the smallest one. Hope your opponent discovers this huge cluster and takes them all down. Now good luck to him firing all over the place looking for that wee tiny little ship somewhere in the vast ocean.

Electronic game that can do an amazing amount of things. You have to locate either the gold or silver treasure, then dive for it, with a limited amount of air. After you explore each sector, you exhaust the treasure and a new one is set. Unfortunately, mine will freeze up halfway through the game and just make a continuous monotone beep. I wonder if an electronics expert could fix it?

A lot of people complain about the length of this one, but then fail to do the same for hex and counter wargames. Hmmm. If I can leave it set up and split it over two days or so, I can get really into this.

BTW, I got this for $1 at an auction about a year ago. In perfect condition too.

Again, the theme is very appealing to me. Opening up the secrets of the Dark Continent! Seems weird to be able to move animals all the way across the board, though. The scoring almost seems superfluous here, as it banks on what random tiles you discover.
