New York"It's not hard to design a game that works, the real challenge is making one that people want to play again and again."--Martin Wallace
After a brief reorg of my games and a slight purge, I find myself with a tiny amount of free space on my game shelves, enough for one game, possibly two (more on that below).Recommend
Pic is not up to date, but the total size of the space is the same still; my entire collection must fit there.
I have plenty of Euros already, but with my kid making it impossible for my wife and I to commit to any game that involves setup, I'm leaning toward an abstract or two. My wishlist is often small because I'm not much of a wisher. But I do have a few titles that I've been turning over and can't quite commit to. These are those titles. I guess what I'm hoping for here would be for anyone in the know to chime in and say "your concerns are right -- don't get it" or maybe "John, you really should follow new games more -- the game you want instead of this one is ______."
It is entirely possible that I wind up with more space when this is all said and done. I'm not wild about owning Civilization, and I have much better games than Settlers of Catan now, and might just get rid of it rather than keep it simply because of its prominence in the hobby. I have a home, not a museum.
Anyway, have at it.
