My first geeklist! Figured it might be nice to have record of what some people received in their Tanga Mystery Box of Games from the end of the August 2011 Game-a-thon. Feel free to post here if you like.

All Z-Man Games, which seems to be the pattern here. Nothing wrong with that.

I got the OOP Mystery Box! Couldn't be happier:

Dune

Merchant of Venus

It weighed a lot.

Actually pretty happy after reading reviews and watching videos on BGG!

Not too bad for $14. I was hoping for Cleopatra's Caboose though.

I got the Prophecy: Dragon Realm, Martinique, and MegaCorps. I'm happy with my haul, even though I already own Dragon Realm. I'll be even happier if I find someone who wants to buy Dragon Realm off me.

My 3 were Magnet, MegaCorps and Master of Rules. I'm not too crazy about what I got, but that's what a gamble is all about. Magnet will get played for sure...not sure about the others though.

Genji/Magnet/Master of Rules 3-fer, 4.2 lb. Ya takes your chances. Genji had pretty counters but one of the sheets was defective, with the plastic covering essentially uncut on one side. Wound up making a lot of the tokens punch poorly.

I just got the first item from my Game of the Day grab bag too, shipped independently from the other eleven via Amazon's byzantine shipping system. It's Stack Market. What a weird idea, but it has crummy graphic design and apparently isn't the greatest fun. Love the crazy eyes on the dude on the box, though.

Two are okay, but I too am disappointed in the Prophecy expansion. Probably worth the $15, though.

Not too bad. My initial reaction was disappointment with the Prophecy expansion too, but perhaps I will get the base. Will need to look into it.

Overall, I feel good about the results.

6.2 lb. box had this:

MegaCorps

Shazamm!

Magnet

I just purchased Magnet a couple of weeks ago when they were offering it for $4.75 and Shazamm! I've had for awhile. Megacorps the only thing new.

To those that have Magnet, I purchased it because it looks like a really good two-player game and very simple to teach. Give it a try before you dump it.
