I have wanted this game since I played it at a party last year. This is a great game for a large group of people, especially if it includes any non-gamers. My wife gave me this.

One of the two games that my mom gave me. I had not heard of this game until I started to frequest BGG lately. Upon reading about it, it seemed like a game that both I and my younger son would enjoy. I like puzzle games. Even though I had never played it, I knew it was a game I wanted.

Played this game once at the Sacramento Board Game Meet-up a couple of months ago. I really enjoyed it and added it to my wish list. I am beginning to see why people think so highly of Reinar Knizia as a game designer. This one was also given to me by my mom.

A great 2 player game in the Carcassonne series. Another Knizia title. I first played this at my friend's annual winter game party the weekend after Christmas year before last. I really enjoy the Carcassonne games and am somewhat of a completist, so I knew I had to get this one. Given to me by my sister. I played it with my 6 year old son, and he really enjoyed it also.

Once I read about this expansion on BGG, I knew I had to get it to make my Carcassonne collection complete. Adds some interesting rule twists to the game. Given to me by my brother.

Another Carcassonne expansion I knew I wanted, at least for completeness' sake. I'm still undecided if I like what this one adds to the game. My brother also gave me this one. With the addition of these two expansions, King and Scout is the only one I don't have, not counting the yet to be realeased The Discovery.
