While not new to gaming, I am new to BGG. And one of my biggest problems is at times I can be an implusive buyer. For example, in the five weeks since I've joined the Geek, I have gotten 10 new games. My wishlist isn't getting any smaller either. I thought I would make my first geeklist by listing the 10 games I've gotten (however not in the order I bought them).

All of my FtF guys aren't hardcore gamers. So if I want some good gaming on a regular basis I have to buy games my wife will play. Which means the games have to be easy to learn and quick to play. Enter Oceania.

Another quick and easy game we can both enjoy. The tiles make it so each game is different.

We haven't played this game yet. I'm not really into card games, and I refuse to get a deckbuilder. One deck is it. And if I want a complex game, I'll get a good wargame.

Another simple card game. This the third game in Vainglorious Games' Celtic Nation series. The other two, Cambria and Hybernia, will be released by Closet Nerd Games sometime this year.

Quite a game. Haven't played it with just the two of us yet, but I have read on the forums that it plays well with two.

I've always been intrigued by Bible based games, so I am excited to try this. I own Settlers of Canaan and Solomon's Temple by Cactus Game Design. I would also love to get my hands on The Campaigns of King David.

Another game that's quick and easy. I also plan to buy Roma and Arena: Roma II.

I own the original Panzer Grenadier game (Second Edition, published back in 2001). I really like this game, and the Third Edition rules really cleaned up the system. I hope to get several of the expansions.
