It just hit me today that I have four pending game orders from on-line retailers: two through tanga, one from ThoughtHammer waiting against hope for Glory to Rome, and one from Boards and Bits.

What is the largers number that you have had pending?

I think I have something like a dozen going right now. All but one, a Boards n Bits order which is the bulk of our Christmas gifts for my wife's family, are either small-press or long-ago pre-orders.

That's something that surprised me about Boardgaming as opposed to other hobbies; you can order something and the lead time could be a year or longer before you see it -- if ever.

I vividly remember that one of my orders consisted of 14 games and that is when I "returned" to RPGs. After that order, the average is 8 games per order from my FLGS

It is easier for me to make a list (from my Wish List) and order the most wanted games and then tick off the ones that have a question mark followed by an X. The problem is that sometimes I have to wait a while to get the completed order because one or more games are out of stock.

Anyway, I have now become much more selective and there are more crosses than ticks on my Wish List !

Regards.

24 games from two users here on BGG.

Bought 3 copies of PitchCar, so if the package was a monster, why not add some other games on top.

Four orders at one time.

One from Thoughthammer, one from Boards&Bits, one from a local store, and one from an individual. It was during the time I was initially building my collection.

EDIT: I thought this was about number of orders, if it's about number of games... shoot, probably over 30.

I am currently waiting on 8 orders

1. Cool Stuff Inc. - Clash of Giants II, Grand Illusion, and Caeser: Conquest of Gaul

2. Ebay Seller #1 - Risk Express

3. Ebay Seller #2 - Kolin 1757

4. Tanga - Pirate King (2nd. Ed.) I couldn't pass it up

5. Cool Stuff Inc. - Devil's Horsemen ( Back-ordered from Aug. cause game was discovered damaged after I had ordered it.)

6. Another Cool Stuff Inc. - Leuthen, Zorndorf, and Caylus: Magna Carta ( After winning Kolin 1757 my collecting gene went into action and I found these at my favorite on-line game store. There were only 1 of each left so thanks to the credit-card I've got a few titles of the Battles from the Age of Reason.)

7 & 8 are pre-orders from GMT for Washington's War and Brandywine.

I know, I know, I'm ridiculous but it's my Birthday in 7 days so I feel like I can indulge myself. Normally I limit myself to 1-2 game orders a month from Cool Stuff and 1 out-of-print game a week from ebay depending on my finances. I really like Coolstuff because they carry Wargames and are very competative with Boulder, and usually beats ThoughtHammer. Boards N Bits has been good to me in the past but no free shipping means my dollar stretches farther at Cool Stuff or Boulder.

That's a hell lot of orders, 3 more than mine and I feel as if I've sinned by getting so many.

Oh well, Happy Birthday Luis!
