I usually carry a plastic bin of games to various gaming gatherings. In an effort to play individual games more often over a given month, I've decided to select board games at the beginning of a month, load up the bin, and keep the mix fixed until the next month. It also saves me time debating what to bring before each gathering.

Here's the July 2010 batch of games in Lars' Bin o' Games...

I've owned this for several years and only played it a handful of times. I'm debating trading this to another person in my gaming group, making it still available but just not under my command. However, I want to make sure it isn't a favorite first.

A good euro game with some pseudo-role selection, many difficult choices, and good production. Another one that always seems to glide under the radar. Not this month!

Favorite blend of euro elements and a wargame. Plus the cube tower is cool.

Brand new game I got for my June birthday. Looks like another winner from Days of Wonder.

Not really a boardgame, more of a loose storygame rpg. Still it could scratch that storygame rpg itch that I haven't been able to meet lately.

Another new game I got for my birthday. I've played it a handful of times with 2-3 players, but I think it will reach another level of fun with 4-6 players.

Can't go wrong with zombies. Plus it fits 6 players, which is harder to do than one would think.

Only played this once, but I think there is some strategy and depth that I haven't reached yet. First play is usually about fumbling with rules and activities, hopefully I can play this more to see more of the game.

Third birthday gift. This (plus all the other expansions) is always a favorite and has endless combinations for fresh games.
