I always saw threads like this and thought people were crazy because I always had a wishlist with several games. Well, turns out I just received a $75 Amazon gift card but not sure what to buy.

I know I'm getting King of Tokyo, Love Letter, Eclipse/Mage Knight expansions, and Wits and Wagers as gifts in the near future (Christmas/Birthday).

So that leaves me kind of unsure what to pickup. I also just bought Neuroshima Hex Saturday and haven't played it yet.

I'd also rather not purchase anything from Amazon which is expensive compared to Miniature Market, as I'm local to their store (although if Amazon is a little bit more that's fine).

Not exactly sure what I'm lookin for, I typically enjoy Ameritrash and Hybrid Eurotrash games the most. I can enjoy a Euro but they don't get me too excited. Abstracts only rarely engage me (Battle for Hill 218, Arimaa being maybe my favorite). I'm fine with Coops and Solo games but have several already.

Ideas?

Edit - Not that I expect anyone to do a lot of work to offer me suggestions, but my Owned/ratings/Current Top 10 are all up to date if you'd like more information.

Sounds like a good time to get Galaxy Trucker off your wishlist, and maybe that RftG expansion as well.

Yeah, I was thinking about Galaxy Trucker. Wasn't sure though if I should jump all-in and get the Anniversary edition though.

Getting RftG: Brink of War is not a bad idea, except I probably won't play it for a year or more (we just introduced the first expansion and I'm waiting for the proper time to introduce the 2nd). So it's kind of an unspectacular choice since I won't even play it for a long time.

It's a shame the Fantasy Flight POD expansion stuff for Gears of War and Space Hulk: Death Angel don't have free super saver shipping or I would get all of those.

I'm also kind of leaning towards getting some deckboxes (for Android Netrunner) and some plano trays.

+1 for Galaxy Trucker. I've had it on my Amazon wishlist for a while, and its price right now is pretty much the lowest I've seen it in several months. And it's only a dollar cheaper at MM.
