Last month, my wife and I had a big discussion about family finances and how we had to be more selective about what we purchase. This list is a testement to my selectivity.

Though purchase or trade, the following games are en route to me. Hopefully they were all wise aquisitions.

Once I found out that you can get the Alea edition for a very reasonable price from Boardsandbits.com, it purchase was obligatory.

...which unfortunatly led to the topic of this game, and it being purchased from the same place for a "somewhat-less-than-reasonable" price.

Oh dear.

I recently participated in the "Canadian Mathemagiclicious No Risk Extra Cheese Pass the Pretzels Utlimate Trade". I put up Warcraft and Carcassonne (+river expansion). This was the first game of the ones I got in trade.

I'm not really sure what to make of it. It looks neat.

We already own this, but I've got a good home for this in mind. Every couple should have a copy of Lost Cities.

Boardgames.ca recently had a grand opening sale, and I made some indulgences I otherwise wouldn't have.

I've long been itching to try Dungeoneer our.

Keep in mind that the next four items cost $80 CDN, shipped.

... Item 8 does not exist ...
... Item 8 will not be discussed ...


Really, I wanted to give Fluxx a try, and this one seemed...appropriate, in some way. It probably has something to do with being Canadian. Let's not dwell on this.
