So... my birthday is in the end of May, but my boyfriend got a little excited and gave me my present early. A couple weeks ago he gave me an early gift.... A blue spindown the size of my fist! And then today he gave me an entire Avacyn Restored Booster Box!!! And although I wish he wouldn't have spent so much money on me.... I a SUPER EXCITED!!! And I had to brag a little, lol!

So, what was the last gaming related gift you got?

Well my hubby has been a little busy lately and hasn't had a moment to think about Mother's Day plans, let alone gifts. So I helped him out and ordered a copy of Hawaii on his behalf.

Normally, I don't have to step in like that he's very good about getting me games. I got a stack for my birthday in March, I got one or two for Valentines and at least three for Christmas. Mother's day is pretty much it until next Christmas unless he gets me one for our anniversary.

It's great having someone who indulges you in your hobbies.

It's been a while since I've gotten a game as a gift. This past year's Xmas and Bday presents from my spouse were all non game related things. We've been together a while and I was a bit burned out of just getting games on special occasions so my spouse really went creative and got me some wicked awesome stuff I wanted.

I guess I'd have to say our copies of Mystery Rummy: Jekyll & Hyde and Haggis were the last gaming 'gifts' we received, sort of a gift to ourselves. We have a bit of a tradition of buying games on the way to the hospital to have our kids. My son was born in September, so these were the games I picked out to play while we were guests of the IWK.

My husband got me Little Dead Riding Hood for Valentine's Day. Fairy tale + zombie themes is a great combination for me.

If I can cheat a little bit, the last game I will have received after this coming weekend will be Tobago, which is sitting unopened waiting for Mother's Day. Before that, the last gift was Asara for Christmas.

What do you think of the game? It looks so pretty and I love the theme. I've been thinking about this game and would appreciate your opinion on it

I enjoyed it - the twisted fairy tale elements keep me amused, though it would be nice if there were more kinds of cards. Not a lot of depth but it makes a good quick play for two people.

For the last three years, my husband has pledged to play one game with me for each day of my birthday month. Since we get so busy with the kids and life in general, April can be our best gaming month of the year, and it's awesome.

I think the last thing my husband got me was about a month and a half ago - an expansion to BSG. We got married about five weeks ago so haven't had time to play it together. He was nice enough to text me two weeks ago, during a get together with friends, that they were playing it and someone else was playing my favorite character. *shakes fist angrily*

Doesn't the new game room count as a game related purchase? Sure, technically we don't own it yet...
