My birthday is coming up in June, so I'm planning to treat myself with a fat game order (shooting for the $100 mark to get free shipping from one or more of the online retailers).

In general I'm looking for games that are strongly built around the theme. I also want at least one or two that play well with two. Otherwise its just my personal preferences. I haven't actually played any of these games.

I would appreciate suggestions in addition to (or instead of) these games.

I'm really intrigued by this one. I think it offers the right mix of theme, strategy, diplomacy, etc. that I'm looking for.

Everybody sit down for this--I haven't played any of the Carcassones (GASP!). This looks like a good introduction to the series. How does this compare to Clans (for a similar theme)?

This is another one that really intrigues me, but I'm not sure what to think from what I've read so far. Also its a little harder to find, few online retailers carry it. Is it worth the extra effort?

If I don't go for Tahuantinsuyu (whew that's a mouthful) then I may opt for this. I'm a big F1 fan and this looks like loads of fun.

This is a long shot. The theme is one of my favorites, but it doesn't get great reviews.
