Chess-like 2p abstract received in a trade from a member in Sydney. I traded Biblios for it.

Nice little filler based on the "you cut the cake, I'll choose" mechanic. Looks like a children's game, but there's more to it, and it's surprisingly fun cool

Purchased from SeriouslyBoard for $37

Have had Innovation for awhile and Kat and I love it. So we got the new expansion which arrived last week. We've played a couple of time now and it is has definitely made it more strategic rather than tactical (although the game still swings and changes as you play). Now you can have some cards up your sleeve to bring out at just the right time. Three new core mechanics have been added and the ability to achieve more than one standard age achievement and new score bonuses that help your increase your score to achieve, but reduces the number of icons for dogma actions works well. Great stuff. The team play looks interesting as well, must try that.

Well, as most of you may know I love to paint models (well if you didn't you do now)

So picked this one up, as it seems light and fun. Will have the core set and some of the expansions painted up for BGBTB 2011 Tauranga Event.

Picked up Dominion:Seaside this week. Really enjoy the addition of the Duration cards, and some delightfully nasty attacks devil

Now I have over 18 trillion possible combinations of kingdom cards to play. Better get started!

I thought I'd like to try one of this series. As I have a soft spot for Asia, I chose this one. I got it from a dealer on Ebay, new, was pretty reasonable.

Got this through the thrift list, to play with my kids. It's ok, once you get the rules sorted out. Very random. Couldn't really recommend it (or, by association, it's parent game, Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot).

Well, this has to be my largest investment into a Boardgame to date. I have read so much about it and it looks like it will be a fantastic game.

I'm sure a re-match in an ancients game against a certain someone could be in line at BGBTB.

One of 4 Rrussian card games I received as review copies. This is a pretty good one - you get points by cooking up the best potions. 2-6 players.

I wrote a review here:

Anniversary gift from Orthia... oh so glad I've got it at last.

Social game akin to Werewolf and Mafia, but with no-one stuck as the GM, no player elimination, and just enough 'game' to add clues to who could be bad... but not so many that this is multiplayer Mastermind.

The second of the Russian card games I received as review copies. This one is a 2-player area control game, somewhat reminiscent of Lost Cities. Nice little 10 minute duel, but bad card draws can screw you. There's a good review here:
