Since I didn't have enough money to buy the games that I wanted on my last trip to the US, I figured that I can wait for my next birthday. A friend of mine is coming to my country to visit (like he does every year) and as every year he asks me what I want, I tell him the games and he orders them for me and brings it with him. but he buys within a budget of $80. that includes tax and shipping, He can't go more than that

The games that I wanted to get were

Qwirkle
Lord of the Rings; the card game + expansaions HfG and RtM

so when I started to come up with what I can get for my birthday, these games came to mind. But then I started thinking of other games. There was the expansion for Pandemic called On the Brink. I would like that to add to my Pademic game. And then I found something new called Level 7 [Escape] and that is designed to play for 1-4 players. 1 player meaning I can play solo. But it's a tough choice because that game is about $42.60 on amazon and I like it because it's a modular board.

So I already want Qwirkle no doubt. and for a Solo game I take the LotR card game

I can choose one more game but I can't go over $80 and thats where it gets hard for me

I'm okay for the first two and the LotR expansions, because I looked into them and I understand what they are all about. I don't know much about Level 7 at all and buying it would be a mistake even if it can be played solo, much like Dungeon Run can be a solo game which would be a mistake to buy

Re: For my next birthday....
Are you looking for advice? Or, is this more of a diary?

Hi Isaac,
I'm a bit confused, as I thought in your thread about your New York trip, you'd decided that board games weren't for you?

How many players will be playing the games with you? Solo, or more than that?

My advice?

1) Look for sales, and sites with free shipping. If you only get one order a year, you should stretch your bucks as far as you can. I don't find amazon to have any amazing deals, personally, but I'm also in Canada, and it's a whole different ballgame on amazon.ca

2) Look on here for thrifted games/trades; I recently got a copy of Qwirkle from someone for about $12 including shipping to my door since they found it at a thrift store.

Good luck.
