For a bunch of reasons (Wedding, Vacation, Sickness) I will have worked 28 hours of Overtime between Wednesday at 6:30 PM and Monday at 6:30 pm. When you add in three regular shifts for a grand total of 68 hours worked in that time I think I deserve a reward.

So, during a four hour period on Saturday when I wasn't working, I hit the CoolStuffInc website to move some games from my wishlist to my shopping cart.

This one has been on the wish list for a while now. I'm always on the lookout for games I can play with my wife and I've played this game a couple of times at my local club.

She has been playing games with me since last year and has been expanding what she plays. I'm hoping more variety means more playing time. Besides, lately we have been introducing games to some of our friends. This seems like a nice choice to play with a casual / social gamer so we can begin moving away from, "Let’s play that train game again."

Another game that made the wishlist after playing at the club. I found it simple to learn but interesting enough for me but not so complicated non-gamers won't get it.

Plus, I told my wife about it and she said, "That sounds interesting." which was all I needed to hear.

I love civilization games. I purchased Through the Ages after only one play and I'm still trying to get it to the Table.

Roll Through the Ages is my way of slowly bringing my wife around to Civilization games. I didn't think, "Instead of Dominion Tonight, let's play this Civ game I have, it's got cards just like Dominion." would be the best way to get her into Through the Ages.

I'm using this game to more towards a Civ type game. To get the Camels nose under the tent, so to speak.

Speaking of Camels, this one first came to my attention thought the contest mb (which I didn't win, obviously ... but did get a nifty microbadge).

I read some reviews, like what I heard and since I think my wife would like this it made the order.

This one hit the wishlist, and this order, because I wanted an in Depth monster game I could really sink my teeth into.

OK, not really. This is actually for my three year old daughter. I think it's time to start her playing, I know she likes the idea of playing games with dad. After all, she is always asking, "To play with the little men with guns (Memoir 44)." For now we just move them around on the table but I'm starting early.

That's why this game was on the wishlist for such a short period of time. I think some of the game still on the wishlist might be jealous.

I saw this on a list of games for little kids. After reading some of the reivews I had to get it, my little girl is going to love the chickens ... and you get to steal their feathers.

It's a bit advanced for her now but I know she will grow into it and I like the idea of have more than one game she can play with mommy and daddy. After all, she's starting to realize the Wings of War card with her name on it she slides around the really isn't part of the game.

This game wasn't on my wishlist. I did not plan on buying it, I hadn't even looked at. But, the insidious "People who purchased games in your order also purchased these" came up and Citadels was at the top. I had read a threat where I guy was complaining that the only game the group he played with was this one. A lot of the Reponses said what a good game it was and even the guy complaining said it was a good game he just some variety (which is the same reason I'm making this order).

Anyway, a couple of reviews later, and I'm a victim of checkout marketing. Yea, I also buy candy bars when I'm checking out of the grocery store.
