This is my 'to buy' wish list. What priority order would you put them in? They are not in any particular order at the moment? If you would not buy them delete as appropraite!

Fiasco
Survive
Alien Frontiers
Myrmes
Eclipse: RotA (expansion)
Space Cadets

If you've done your research on Fiasco and you really, really think your group is up for it, then you should get that and play it. You don't have any other storytelling games in your collection, which is why I'm wary, but it's a great experience in the right group.

Alien Frontiers and Eclipse are the only ones I've played personally, though I also own Fiasco and have been looking for an excuse to break it out for some time.

Of those three, I would put them in basically that order, with the caveat that I don't care that much for Eclipse in the first place, and if you quite like it, it seems to improve the base game considerably. If you are going to get AF, I highly recommend finding the Factions expansion as well (might be hard to find, but well worth it if you can get it for a reasonable price).

Fiasco is not really the same kind of game as any of the rest of them, since it is more like a free-form RPG system than a board game, so it can be slotted in anywhere since it's apples and oranges no matter what it's being compared to.

From my experience and with looking at your rankings, I would put Space Cadets and Alien Frontiers tied for first. Then Myrmes second but possibly tied with Eclipse: RotA. Last would be survive. I don't know enough about Fiasco to rate it. All the other's are good games though.
