Some games that are next on my to-buy list, some games I'm just thinking about getting, and some that are out of print and so expensive I wonder if I'll ever get a copy. No particular order to these.

I doubt this will be a terribly interesting list to others (although I'd love comments) but I wanted to get these all down for my own use at least!

Played this one night a week or so ago on BSW when all the Puerto Rico games were already going full swing. I've really liked it so far, I've played with 2, 3, and 4 players and enjoyed it thoroughly with all. Most of the 2 player games I've been in finished in under 10 minutes which also makes it nice for a quick at lunch gaming fix.

Not sure how this escaped my initial list. All the comparisons to PR make me very eager to try this, I know it has a lot of differences, but with near universal appeal I definitely want to add this at some point.

Seems like this one is too luck-based. But then I should have won at least once by now after a dozen or so games on BSW. Light and very accessible, I can see this as a good game to rope others into playing something deeper!

Lately I've been dipping my toes in the waters of new genres (for me). I've never played a racing game, Formula De isn't necessarily the one I want to start with, but I would like to give the genre a try.

Themewise it doesn't get any better than this. Braveheart! I wonder if it's too complex, but most comments lead me to believe that it isn't. I don't want a high complexity wargame, HotS seems at about the right level. And if it's too complex...

...then Battle Cry is certainly the right level. I picked up a copy of this for my older brother, a real Civil War fan. Played one battle over Christmas and then he had to go back home to Atlanta and I haven't played since. But I really liked the brief experience I had with it.

I just ordered Traumfabrik and am really looking forward to playing, the theme was more appealing. But I hear nothing but superlatives about Modern Art so it finds a place on this list.

UPDATE - I did land Traumfabrik and have given it one play so far. I like it a lot, it's my first auction game. Now that I have that I'm not quite as antsy to land Modern Art, it's still near the top of my list, but I like diversity in the new games I buy.

I like two player games, and the theme of this seems very cool. All that I've read about it makes it sound like a game I'd really enjoy. Too bad Games Workshop is out of the boardgame business!

Dragons takes the place of all the Talisman expansions I don't own (Timescape, City). This was my favorite game when I was younger and I'd love to pick up these expansions and give it a go with my brothers.

With Catan as my favorite game, I'm actually a bit reticent to tinker with it. C&K sounds like it adds a bit of length to the game but the extra options seem intriguing enough to give it a go. But that price! I hate paying that much for an expansion!

I'm not a huge fan of dexterity games but given that the last one I played was Jenga, it's probably high time I give another one a shot. And I'm a sucker for trying anything that wins the SdJ.

A classic we owned when I was a kid, but I never played (looked too dry next to Fireball Island and Crossbows and Catapults!). I'd love to rectify that error.
