It's been only recently that I discovered this alternate universe of German-style games. I've since acquired a few and enjoy them greatly. I figured I should compile a list of the ones that I still need... er... want to get.

I presently own the basic 4-player Settlers as well as the Cities and Knights expansion. I've read a number of both negative and positive reviews of Seafarers. I figure that it still looks to be a worthy addition to the basic game. At the very least, it offers more gameplay variation. (I don't have any plans to buy any of the 5/6 player expansions at this time.)

I've read scads of positive reviews for this Biblical variant of Settlers. Looks like a lot of fun.

From the past back to the future. Am I being redundant? Yet another Settlers variant? Well, if they weren't so good at desigining fresh new variations on a tried-and-true method, maybe we wouldn't keep buying them. Again, lots of glowing reviews.

Well, I already own the basic Carcassonne game (with River Expansion), the Inns and Cathedrals expansion, the Traders and Builders expansion, the King and Scout mini-expansion, and the Count of Carcassonne mini-expansion. Whew! Besides being a great game and one that many of my friends and family have embraced whole-heartedly, it seems that I myself am becoming something of a completist. So, I suppose I NEED this mini-mini expansion that was released with the German magazine Spielbox. (Looks like a fun addition to the basic game!)

Carcassonne mania. How do they make fresh variations while maintaining the flavor of the original? Well, this 2-player stand-alone variant was designed by the Master, Reiner Knizia, for one. Seems even he has developed his own form of Carcassonne-itis.

Well, now that I own the King and Scout mini-expansion, I have some unused tiles for Hunters and Gatherers. (Sigh, this could really start to hurt the pocketbook.) Here we have a Stone Age, stand-alone variation of Carcassonne which many seem to prefer over the original.

Carcasonne: The City. How much Carcassonne is too much Carcassonne? Well, as soon as they release an unsuccessful expansion or stand-alone variation that gets many negative reviews... So far this has not yet happened. So, here we have yet ANOTHER variation. I mean, I already own the Ark of the Covenant variant and it turned out to be quite a bit of fun. How much is too much? It already seems ridiculous, but I'm not tired of it yet...

The third full-size expansion of the basic game, The Princess and the Dragon promises to deliver an element of Fantasy to the gameplay of the original. (...as well as an element of spite and revenge... How many meeples can YOU make the dragon eat? Ouch.) Soon-to-be released.

I've got to hand it to Rob Daviau at Hasbro US... I think he's caught the vision of European-style gameplay and has even managed to introduce some of those elements to American staple games like Monopoly and Risk here in North America. I missed this expansion, however, since the whole game was rereleased as the Trilogy Edition in the US -- Hasbro not wanting to release the expansion alone on this side of the ocean. Maybe I'll find a copy someday and be able to play the Siege of Minas Tirith.

Well, kudos to Rob at Hasbro. They designed a game that many die-hard German/European gamers have embraced with a passion. Many positive reviews. And it's quite amazing to look at!

So, two years ago Hasbro did not want to release a simple expansion to Lord of the Rings Risk and instead repackaged the whole deal, alienating their North American buyers who wished they had never bought the first version in the first place. Now, it seems as if Hasbro has embraced the concept of expansions to a base game. (I didn't think they believed it was financially viable. Go figure.)

Risk... in the future... battling from the moon and from underwater cities... nuclear fallout zones... limited turns... a different strategy... This one looks like it could be a lot of fun as well. And with that, I will end my list. (More updates later as well as a link to the games I already own.)

Thanks for reading.
