We all have a list of games we want, but which one is your most wanted? A new release or re-release, an older game that you've been watching eBay for or hope to trade for some of those games you'll never play again?

Which game tops your Most Wanted List and why.

Winner's Circle, the re-release of Royal Turf, tops my Most Wanted List. I don't have any racing games in my collection and this one sounds like fun. The comments can vary, some say it's too much luck, others say there is strategy in your choices. Either way, it seems a middle-weight game that my family and I would enjoy.

There are also a couple of new releases that interest me but I'll wait for some reviews as to how they play before making a final decision. These are Alexander the Great, Go West and Australia. It appears that Rheinlander is being re-released, and I think I'd like to add that to my collection--a middle-weight Knizia tile-laying game definitely attracts my attention.

Normally, I'd be inclined to say Arkham Horror, since I'm such a Lovecraft fan... But I'm not certain the FFG version will inspire the right tone.

So I'll go with Ave Caesar. I love racing games and I love the Roman/chariot theme. Circus Maximus has always been a nostalgic favorite. However, CM has clunky, clumsy rules and is very difficult to introduce to new players.

Ave Caesar has always intrigued me and is very well regarded here on the Geek. Hearing that there will be a reprint forthcoming in the next year or so has really lifted my chariot racing spirits! I'm greatly looking forward to this reprint, and expecting to form a season around it.

I love the Alea series, and this newest one which also starts off a new set (medium-box series?!) is no exception. It will be mine. As will Pallazzo.
Being that I feel I should only add 1 game, not 2, I chose Louis because it is #1 in the new set.
Maybe someone else will add Knizia's newest Alea game?

My #1 Must Have of 2005.

Specifically the reprinted version of Monsters Ravage America, Monsters Menace America coming out in April.

I don't know what it is about this game, but it appeals to me heavily.

Soon to be reprinted this Spring (June 24th I believe). I'm perfectly happy with the 1st edition I have of RoboRally, however, I'm hoping like most Geeks that this new release contains the 'best' of all expansions.

This is a stand-in for FFG's upcoming release of Reiner Knizia's Beowulf game.

This is the first game that I've considered a must buy before knowing anything other than the name and designer. Just the fact that it's Beowulf is enough for me. Plus, John Howe's cover art is awesome.

Tales of The Arabian Nights. I am strongly drawn to this game for numerous reasons. The rich theme, the creative paragraph based system, the solid solo and group playability.

But ebay prices and BGGM prices are through the roof. Just a few months ago it was going for half of what you see it going for now. I just can't justify paying that much for a game. Right?
A reprint - please!?! I'm begging you!

Been hoping against hope that some day I'd win the lottery and be able to afford this game. Now FFG is reissuing it (but not until Xmas! Waaaahh!). I'll just have to find something else to quench my unhallowed thirst until then.

It would be this one for me - out of all the Star Wars related games I've ever played, this is the only one that is decently fast-paced, very replayable, and actually fun to play. All the thematic elements are blended appropriately with the game's mechanics and it is well balanced. Problem? Out of print and a rare find on eBay. But if I had the opportunity to get it, I'd probably snap it up.

This is probably my most wanted game right now. I put it on a game order back in September, and fortunately, they (Thought Hammer) let me swap it for another item a month later when it still hadn't come out.

I'm glad I didn't wait.

I loved this game when I was 15 and picked it up at toys r us when it was new. Since then It's been lost and forgotten - untill recently, and I searched ebay for it recently only to catch the tail end of on auction for which it sold for 50 bucks, and have been waiting for a complete game to come up again since with no luck.

This is the game I must have -- or I will go mad!

Seriously, FGG has a good track record of late and I am optimistic that the new version of this game will be well worth playing. I've been looking forward to this game since the reprint/redesign was announced. It's almost here. I can't wait!
