Hey all! Even if I'm not the most active member, I declare myself the king of the day because today is my birthday! (April 15th) I can share the throne with other 15th April'ers if there are any around here. So basically, here is a list of games I would like. Feel free to browse my collection (Which also consist of some friend's game) to add suggestion you think I could like! Our local store has a good variety of games. I still need to see a "Once in a lifetime opportunity to buy this gem-of-a-game" but the choice is still good.
(The list below is not entirely in stock at the store)

Here it goes!

This game "Intrigue" me (Ok, calm down... enough bad humor for the list) a bit. Any quick hints on how it relates to other games?

Not available at the store for now...

I think my group would love this, but our store only seems to have Dodge City... not the original game...

Heard so much about this, curious to try it! And I don't own a game named after a god yet... Unless Ys or el Grande were gods...

We once had a full league of Formula De going (10 players following the real F1 Races), so I can't see why my group wouldn't like this, it can only bring more fun becahse of the "pichenotte" (Sorry for the non-french speaker!) aspect!

Available at the store, our game collection lacks one about Africa... The only time we see africa in a game is during Civilisation (Adv. and Sid Meiers), 7 ages and History of the world. Unfortunately, we rarely play any of those games!

Ok its a Knizia, any quick review of how fun it is?

Basically the same as above, but this one seems lighter yet more open to backstab, but I might be super-wrong...

I always wanted to try a fighting game more complex than Lunch Money. This one seems to get the most attention. Is it worth all this attention?

Also, on a side note, I'm trying to design a small Arena-like game where 3-6 gladiators fight using different weapons, moves etc... When i'm gonna be ready to test it, if you think you can be of any help (Or for another part of the game development life cycle), don't hesitate to send me a message!

This one wandered in my mind for a while but can't get out of that "Could be fun, but I dunno... it doesn't "look" right" part of my brain... anyone can convince me? The main time I play 2 people games is with my girlfriend and she doesn't like too complicated games...

I also have other opportunities to play at 2 players with other friends, but if I could bring my girlfriend into gaming more, maybe she could join the group. Any suggestion for gateway games other than Settlers (Which my group did an overdose long ago)? Ticket to Ride could be a winner I guess...
