What does you guys think is the best use of money given my ratings and such? ninja I have been given permission by my girlfriend to make an order as long as it includes Cash N Guns, (as you can tell), but want to know what you think is the best alternative.

Option 1
Cash N Guns
Galaxy Trucker

Option 2
Cash N Guns
Funny Friends
India Rails
1856

Option 3
Cash N Guns
Die Macher
Tomb
Bohnanza

Thank you for any help.

I can usually do tiny purchases, but my GF (being a gamer) recognizes when new games appear. Unless it is a huge sale, I have to get permission first.

I could be way off, but this looks like a solid gold pick. Bohnanza is a perfect gateway game. It's the kind of game where when you say "It's easier than it sounds" it turns out ot be true, so people believe you in the future.

Cash & Guns...well you know all about that protion.

Tomb is (from what I understand) a great dungeon crawler. Okay this one I know less than nothing about, but it's over ridden by the rest. besides, it's a dungeon crawler....It's a personal experience and the most I could say would limit your attempt.

Lastly Die Macher... a grand strategy game. this is kind of like bohnanza only she won't understand it. It's the grand strategy game that no collection is coplete without. just assure her she won't have to play it more than once and you should be fine. and who knows she might enjoy it.

Go with Option 1. You won't be disappointed. Galaxy Trucker is awesomely fun and well worth it price. There is so much joy in assembling a ship and then sending it into space, where it is likely to be blown to bit.

Hope this helps.

Okay everyone, I know you are all waiting in suspense, but I decided to go with Option 4: Leonardo da Vinci, Cash N Guns, Die Macher, and Galaxy Trucker. Thanks for all the suggestions and for CoolstuffInc deciding to put $15 copies of LdV on their site again.

I hope you can get Die Macher to the table more often than I can.

I've owned it for three years, I've gotten one 'short' play out of it to date.

Great game
Great mechanics
Great scott, it's been six hours!?!
