So I spent hours on Coolstuffinc tonight trying to get a wishlist together to give to my wife. I decided that if she really wants to get me something (I always tell her she does enough for me already, but that isn't the right answer) it might as well be board games. She is completely on board since she said I am impossible to shop for.

Here are my picks: (NOTE: had to get to $100 for free shipping)

1. Carcassonne: The River II - my FLGS never carries this so for $4...
2. Castle Panic - I really like the idea of this game and my 13yo daughter will love it
3. Hive: The Ladybug - have the mosquito; might as well finish it off
4. Stone Age - I know that people love it or hate it, but my wife actually really wants it so anything to keep her gaming with me
5. Survive: Escape from Atlantis! Escape from Atlantis! - just looks fun!
6. Thurn and Taxis - I am really interested in this for the 3 of us to play

Anyhow, that is my list. Something like $115 total so free shipping. How long should I expect till I get this? I think my wife thinks I will get it by my birthday, March 19th, but free shipping has me thinking maybe not. Any estimates from other customers?

You'll definitely have it by your birthday. If you ordered today CoolStuff will have it to you by about Wednesday next week.

You'll like river II - it is a nice little expansion. If you don't have them yet get Traders & Builders as well as Inns & Cathedrals as these are easily the best two expansions.

The two of you will probably like Stone Age. I don't think it is a great game, but it is a nice game for my wife & I to play. So...as long as you can take it for what it is...nothing serious, but I nice diversion...you'll enjoy it.

Thurn & Taxis is good, but the expansion - For Power & Glory makes it MUCH better.

Enjoy your birthday....

Happy early birthday.

Does one need the River in order to enjoy River 2?

Sorry for the hijack.

I'd say next Wednesday is a fair guess - here in NY it usually takes about 5 days.

That is a really good question. I would guess no though as the description states that it fixes some things that were wrong with the River I being used with the later expansions.

You do not need The River in order to play with The River II.

In fact, I'm not even sure if you are officially supposed to play with them both together, but you could if you want. It might spread the board out too far too early on, though.

Cool Stuff shipments come pretty quickly. I don't think I have ever waited more than 5 business days and I always go with the free shipping option.
