I dunno if this has ever been attempted, but instead of the usual recent purchases/suggestions geeklist, I am actually going to make your opinions matter. That's right, the BGG community will vote and your voices heard.

Here are the rules:

1) Listed are ten games to get you started. This is by no means a limit. Please add any game you think I would be interested in. I will be monitoring this list frequently and I reserve the right to delete any game I am not interested in or already have. I will keep a list of eliminated games at the bottom of this message so the same game does not keep getting added.

2) Listed is the price from fairplaygames.com, my favorite online retailer. (I am in no way associated with them at all) If you add a game, it must be available from them and list the price with it.

3) If you comment under a game it counts as a vote. Please leave commentary at the bottom.

How to vote:
You may vote for as many games as you want, but the total value (sum of prices) must be just over $125. This is the free shipping threshhold from them. You can have a total under $125, but please do not make your total like $150 if you include a $20 game in your votes (as you could not list that game and still be over $125). I will not check this, please be honest. If you wish to change your vote, please email me. I will eliminate all your votes and you can then revote. If one of your votes gets eliminated due to my terms, please add another.

Thanks!

Eliminated games
Struggle of Empires (Own, example)
1856 (own)
Game of Thrones (own)
Tigris & Euphrates (own)
Carcassone (owned, traded)
Hansa (own)

On sale for $7.95. If you don't have it, a great way to pad out your purchase to the $125 mark, should you so desire.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

I seem to keep adding this game to geeklists, but based on your ratings, there's a chance you'll like it. It's an excellent game.

$26.45 - If you want La Strada, get Magna Grecia instead. Better game with some similar stuff going on in it.
