Time for some geeklist in-house cleaning. In 2009 I started keeping track of my annual game acquisitions (My comprehensive 2009 Game Purchases). In 2010 I tried created monthly geeklists to track my game purchases. That became too cumbersome so this year I went to one geeklist that keeps a running list of additions to my collection. Anyway, this list has the consolidation of 12 lists from 2010 that tracked what I got. I'm deleting my individual monthly geeklists from 2010.

In part I'm hoping to see how out of hand my collection has gotten and jolt me into acquiring fewer games. So far, it hasn't worked for 2011 but there's always hope for next year.

Here's my 2011 list of acquisitions for anyone interested: My 2011 Game Gains (or The Boardgaming Money Pit)

Also, I've started to keep a living geeklist of upcoming games of interest for the year. Released games are removed and something new of interest is always finding its way to this list:

1/11/10 Picked up two sets for the extra terrain. At least the Drow and the Troll all common and uncommon units that allow for more than one set in an army. Many unit abilities are particular to the dungeon and shadow terrain. Still, in a huge setup with a dungeon they'll be useful.

1/11/10 I like Dominion and so does my wife. She also likes Fantasy/Dungeon type settings so this one seemed to be the perfect blend of something we'll play together. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

1/11/10 As wargames go this one has chosen to go with a distasteful battle in modern warfare. I've always been interested in getting this game as it depicts early street fighting that later became the bane of anti-terrorism city warfare in Iraq. As a scenario, it's one where you have to keep your guard as well as rely on a bit of luck to get in and out of a bad situation with minimal losses. It also underscores the need to never underestimate your opponent regardless of the training and tools they might use against you. All that plus it's gotten some excellent reviews from the hard core wargamers out there as being a fun tactical wargame. Today, the setting could just as easily be modified to deal with anti-insurgent actions in Afghanistan.

1/15/10 Fantasy warfare with a purpose. Another beautiful and engaging "big box" game from FFG. I like the way the handled the 3D terrain presentation. Now with the new expansion coming out for it, it's looking even better.

1/27/10 I'd been wanting to get this one from Boulder Games every time they put it on sale. I finally caved in and got it. This version is very nice and with English rules and the game seems very playable from a solo perspective as well. Yes, Jim is now happily retired (I hope) and BG is but a memory.

1/16/10 Here's a blast from the past. The version I got was the TM release from 1998. BG still had one (or more) in stock (back when Jim was blowing out the last of his inventory). It has terrible reviews for being a dice fest but that's what I was looking for; a simple push your luck dice game. This one may turn out to be better than the reviews bashing it.

1/16/10 Another one that gets poor reviews but seems to get an OK nod for the most part. I really like the graphics and it seems like a solid Euro even if on the lower end of the strategy vs. luck scale. Got it on sale through BG so I'll give it a try. Looking back, I'm glad I got this. Not something I'd play everyday but it was entertaining.

1/16/10 Got the box cover version shown. I have series I and II and this one has the improved set rules (debatable) but still a good addition to the series. Falls somewhere between C&C:A and SPQR for complexity but plays rather quick (about 1.5hrs per battle). I always liked the area rules in this series where the counters must fit within the abstracted shape areas on the battlefield.

1/17/10 I'm a fan of CDG even though it's tough to find opponents locally. This one is a bit more complex than what I like but it covers one of my favorite Napoleonic campaigns that highlights the ultimate mismanagement of assets. Got this through Troll and Toad on a clearance sale for $23. Today, you can still find this for a very reasonable or similar price on-line. I guess it never caught on like some of GMT's other CDG's.

1/17/10 Another great CDG from GMT in the vein of We the People. Got this through Troll and Toad at the same time as Kutuzov on a clearance sale for $22. This one has rules that look to be more approachable. This one hasn't been as cheap lately.

1/21/10 The first time I played this I thought to myself that there's some interesting card play going on and I want to play this again. That seems to be the consensus from the many comments on this game. It certainly has a unique mechanism and I like the get in / get out theme of the game which fits.

OK, full disclosure: as a sweetener deal I got free shipping if I ordered this one so why not. It's a solid 7 game with good card/hand management aspects.

1/19/10 Yet another interesting Euro that's another good gamer's game from the Essen 09 crop. It finally got distribution in the USA this year (2010). Got it with a gift certificate to Boards and Bits my son got me for Christmas. He sure knows how to make his dad happy.

1/21/10 Finally, this has been reprinted and is now available (got mine through Coolstuffinc). Waiting for anything from Valley Games is painful. Given some of the more recent comments on BGG regarding VG, it seems that haven't improved any with regard to customer service. Still haven't played this expansion though.

1/21/10 Had the old version, got the new version too. The card quality is better in this version. Despite some minor annoyances in card color difference going out to the edge of the cards (black and red) and minor typos that need to be fixed by errata, this looks to be another quality reprint. There are some changes in the rules (minor ones) that probably improve the game. Despite my gripes about VG, they have put out some nice reprints of games.

1/23/10 Got in trade along with the following supplements:

Arctic Front (Finlands' War)
White Eagles (Poland supplemental)
Blue Division (Spain fights Russia)
North Wind (Bulge action)
Red Warriors (Operation Mars)

This pretty much rounds out my PG collection. Will I ever get around to playing them all? Hope springs eternal! Hopefully I'll still have my golden years ahead with which to dabble with these.

1/25/10 I needed a good party game and not being a fan of party games doesn't help. I do like horse racing games and this one seems to be pretty lite in the spirit of The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game. Plus it has gotten pretty good reviews for what it is. Plus I like to support Guardian games when I'm there for hosting the Euro game days so this looked like a good one to add to the collection. In retrospect, I've had a blast playing this game. It's excellent.

1/26/10 A better than average Euro from Essen 2009 available in English by RGG. This one has been touted as a bit dry, but in its defense, it does take place in a pretty arid area. (Gak! bad pun then, bad pun now)

1/26/10 Couldn't pass on a Troll & Toad deal to get this for $13 when it retails for $60 and online it goes for about $40+. Anyway, I have nearly the whole GWAS series and this was an opportunity to round out that collection. I really like the brute force approach of the early ironclad navies. It's about firepower and hull thickness and battles of maneuvering rather than the hide and seek electronic and air dependent naval battles of WWII and later. I don't play it much but I like the ship data and counters as well as the scenario history that goes along with them. Plus, here's a chance for the US Navy to whack on the French as it's about US plans to fight a naval war against the French following WWI. I think there's even a short version solo variant that allows the French to immediately surrender and scuttle their fleet upon first contact with the enemy. Good stuff.

1/29/10 Finally out in USA, this is one that I found interesting from the Essen 09 crop. Sure it has plastic bits, but the way of gaining area control through the connecting plastic rings is brilliant.
