Ok...
So I have been looking around at everyone's lists, reviews etc... and I have come up with my top ten list of games I want to buy with my next paycheck!

But my next paycheck will not be able to buy all of these games. So I am looking for some guidance on which ones to buy.

Please tell me which ones and why you think it should be in my library. I love games in general so complex rules, or long playing time are not considerations for me...so long as it is a good game.

In addition, I will be buying all of these games eventually (probably) but if you veterans see something here that will soon be OOP please point that out so I can grab a copy before it becomes OMPR (out of my price range).

*Please note* my use of OOP is more toward my being able to get it new (I'm anal that way - I like punching out all those pieces) rather than if it is still being actively printed by the publisher.

The games with the most comment/recommendations will make my final list...so let the voting begin....

I have heard this is OOP and will be getting harder to "aquire" so it will more than likely be in this next purchase.

My wife has a major Scottish fetish (my ancestry finally paid off on that one). And if it will get her to play...then by all means will I get it...unless it sucks

I don't have Puerto Rico yet nor have I played it, but I thought this 2 player game might be a good intro to the theme...opinions?

Tikal has a lot of lovers and haters - thus it is interesting to me. Controversy is like honey to me. Should it be on the short list this time or next?
