Wich of those games are similar? That I probably should avoid buying together.

Age of Empires III
Puerto Rico
Agicola
The Settlers of Catan
Power Grid
Through The Ages
Carcassonne
Tigris & Euphrates

Shogun
Race for The Galaxy

None of these is similar to the others:

Puerto Rico
Agricola
The Settlers of Catan
Power Grid
Through The Ages
Carcassonne
Tigris & Euphrates
Shogun
Race for The Galaxy
Age of Steam


I haven't played the others on your list.

Race for The Galaxy is based on the Puerto Rico mechanic but the gameplay doesn't feel at all like Puerto Rico to me

AOE III and Agricola are both worker placement games (Through the Ages and Puerto Rico are close cousins).

I would say Tigris and Euphrates is the most unique game among them.

For me both Caracassonne and Settlers are showing their age.

If I got rid of my collections and had to start over I would pick in the following order:

Puerto Rico- easy enough to gateway, deep enough to allow repated plays.
AOE III- I just really enjoy the multiple paths to victory. Fun and fast.
T&E- most unique game I have played in a while. Surprisingly thematic.
RFTG- portable, fast and fun
