Here we go again. I've got $365 and the rules are the same. Taxes don't count, but shipping does. The bad news is that I'm starting with -$70. The good news is the exchange rate is great!
Check out the old list for more details about 2004.

I wanted to start the year off on the right foot. The majority of games last year were German-style and I wanted something more meaty.

I found a few of these Tobruk games on eBay and my game group is really into them. I got ATS, Against all Odds and D-Day Rangers for $110

$185 - Spent up to June 4...

Wait. That can't be right...its still only January. Look likes I need the help of eBay.

So much for the meaty...I noticed this one is back in print. It was one of my favorites in the last iteration and I like the new card art too.

$20 - Now at June 24!

And the bad thing is that a big gaming con is coming up this weekend...

So the Game Con went well...it was Pandacon for those of you who are local.

I managed to sell a large chunk of old games that have been sitting around. I made just enough money to add these two monsters...

Even $ - June 24!

I must say there was just too much plastic to pass these titans up.

Our local gaming group T.A.B.S (Toronto Area Boardgaming Society) organized its first convention. I got an opportunity to try out TI3 in all its table eating glory.

I also picked up this title from Art of L2.

$80 - December 2nd...I gotta stop buying big titles.

Impulse Purchase Alert!

Remembering my fond days in Amsterdam and France, I picked up this one. Reminds me of eating Burger King while waiting for the Snel Train.

Also, because my buddies are not as well travelled, I always get to go first on this one.

$60 - January 31, 2006...ouch

A local shop, Bayshore Hobbies has a great used game sale annually. This year people were lining up the night before. Oddly enough I found this one in the store brand new for a great price!

$30 - March 2

At this rate I won't need a 2006 edition list.

I was at the nearby value village and I found this for $15. Thinking it was a great deal, I snatched it up.

Apparently, it's not such a great deal according to a buddy who saw it a week earlier and passed on it.

March 17 - St Paddy's
