So what are people hoping to see under their tree this year?? Are there any games you're looking forward to? Rattling the box and hearing those tiny plastic pieces shifting around. What game could it be???





Mr. Jack, Easter Island and Bang! The Bullet! are on my list. Hive might get added as well. What's on your list???

Our order is supposed to arrive today! I guess you could call it a Thanksgiving wish list. Oh well, if you get your Christmas wish list early, there's enough time for a second one! Here they are (I'm literally drooling right now thinking about opening all that gaming goodness that will be here in just mere hours):

Imperial

StarCraft: The Board Game

The Red Dragon Inn

Prophecy

Condottiere (out of stock)

Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean

Mare Nostrum: Mythology Expansion

Hunting Party

Vampire: Prince of the City



Update: They arrived and they are spectacular! We played for 8.5 hrs yesterday and got in Red Dragon Inn, Parthenon, and Prophecy. All great games. Can't wait to try out the rest! Maybe we should start thinking about that second christmas order now...

Ubongo

Ubongo rocks. I hear Extrem is even more challenging, but we ALWAYS have fun with ours.

On my Chanukah wishlist:
Veritas (yeah, I know)
Razzia!
Thebes
Enemy Chocolatier
Cartagena
Through the Desert and of course,
Boars (but you have to look at my wishlist to see what that means).

Although it's on my wishlist, I can't see my Secret Santa splashing out the money for Roads & Boats, so it will end up being my Xmas gift from my partner, together with one of the excellent charity gifts from www.oxfamunwrapped.com. Last year I got a corrugated iron toilet and I gave her a condom kit.

Well, I gave the wife 3 games to choose from: In the Year of the Dragon, Amyitis and The Pillars of the Earth, and I think I know which one she chose. But my wishlist for Secret Santa is quite a lot bigger. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewwishlist.php3?username=hakk... Maybe too big. Might need to trim it a little. After Christmas. By playing/buying a few of them.

I gave my family a short list that I thought they could handle. They pretty much stick to a short list of party games and I don't think they even realize there are stores that specialize in board games or that other games really exits. Basically I told them.

Pirate's Cove
Mall of Horror
Carcassonne
Talisman

I am going to be buying myself Decent: Journeys In The Dark as a present for myself and if I have any extra money after shopping for other people I am sure I will find myself a game or two to add to my collection.

Happy Holidays!
