Quantified (2019)
Wishlist(1)
 (Must have)
Want To Play
This looks like an incredible game with real-world social commentary on the information economy and surveillance and OH MY GOD I WANT IT.

Pyramid Arcade includes a set of Icehouse Pyramids, multi-purpose game pieces which can be used in a variety of games, and a bunch of rules for different games. It's a flexible, extensible game system, and I want it precisely for that reason. It's one of my goals to make myself a kit of multipurpose board game components; this would fit right in.

Cosmic is a classic game of zany hidden roles, tense negotiation, and backstabbing. I would absolutely love to add it to my collection, because I think it fills two slots: the brutal negotiation game, and the wacky raucous game.

The Metagame (2011)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Want To Play
I'll admit: although I'm tired of the Apples to Apples party-game mechanic (seriously, can't we come up with something new already?), the sheer flexibility of this game--it can be played in six unique ways!--intrigues me.

Piecepack (2001)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
You can buy a retail version of the Piecepack, called "The Infinite Board Game". Unfortunately, its components do not exactly match the Piecepack specifications, which makes it incompatible with some games.

I've already got Pandemic: On the Brink and Pandemic: In the Lab. Even if State of Emergency isn't great--and by most accounts, it's the weakest expansion so far--I still feel like I ought to add it to my collection.

What? No, I don't have a problem. Shh.

Feb 11, 2019: On the other hand, though I love Pandemic, my copy hasn't been getting much play lately. I'd still kinda like this one for completion's sake, but it's not super-high priority right now.

Onitama (2014)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Like Hive or The Duke, this is an abstract strategy game that has often been compared to chess, but without the intimidating weight of centuries of grand-master strategy. This is something that might be fun to make a print-and-play version of, although I certainly wouldn't say no to the retail copy.

I got a copy of the base game for cheap, but it didn't come with this expansion. I like the idea of fleshing out the game just a little more.

Also sold under the name "Cockroach Poker". A no-frills bluffing game. Would compete for the slot with Skull and Liar's Dice.

Fugitive (2017)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Want To Play
Designer Tim Fowers is a legend, and this game, a nod to the film of the same name, has several of the qualities I love in a game: deduction, bluffing, and asymmetric two-player play.

Feb 13, 2019: That said, I own Liberation, which is similar but lighter, and Android: Netrunner, which is similar but heavier, so as great as this game looks, it's got preexisting competition on my shelves.

Another Button Shy design. This one is a bluffing/social deduction game in 18 cards.

Decrypto (2018)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Want To Play
People recommend this as similar to Codenames, which I love, but with more interactivity between teams. That sounds fun! As much as I love having dedicated hobby board games, I have a lot of room on my shelf for party games.

Stew (2018)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Stew is a game of bluffing, deduction, and push-your-luck by microgame publisher Button Shy. I love Button Shy's work and want to try this one out, along with its expansion, Stew: Fungus Among Us.
[Shop]
Junk Art (2016)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
Junk Art takes the dexterity and stacking of Jenga, but adds some unpredictability--because all the pieces are different shapes. It also adds different game modes, so it's not just the same tower-deconstruction you get with Jenga.

I'd ideally like the plastic version of Junk Art, for its increased durability and consistency.
[Shop]
In Vino Morte (2016)
Wishlist(3)
 (Like to have)
In Vino Morte is a dead-simple bluffing and deduction game for 3-8 players, in only 18 cards. Each round, the dealer gives each player a card, which is either wine or poison. Players then go around the table and choose either to drink what's in front of them, or swap with another player.

I'm drawn to Button Shy's designs in part because I think you could make a great, genre-spanning collection out of just a handful of their 18-card wallet games. This one feels a little like Skull and a bit like Kakerlakenpoker Royal, which is delightful.

Skull (2011)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Want To Play
A no-frills bluffing game. Since I bought The Lady and the Tiger, which has a mode that plays very similarly to Skull, this has become low priority.

That said, it is hard to turn down that beautiful artwork...

Feb 11, 2019: I'm thinking I'l just eventually make my own copy of this game using poker chips, which will have the added benefit of being far more durable than cardboard coasters.

Concept (2013)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
It's like Pictionary and Charades, only better in every way!

Feb 13, 2019: Now that I've moved and there's no longer a copy of this within my gaming group, this could be a little higher priority. Monikers, which I own, is also a great Charades variant, though.

The classic party game for big crowds. I don't usually have large parties, but it would be nice to have on my shelf in case.

Secret Hitler (2016)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Want To Play
I wouldn't mind making a print-and-play version of this game, but I don't have an inkjet printer for that. I'm also happy to try the retail version.

Feb 13, 2019: I'm dropping this down to a lower priority because I don't get many opportunities to play the big-group social deduction game I already own, The Resistance, and this would fill a similar space.

Hastily building spaceships from junk and then trying to shuttle cargo across the galaxy with them? This sounds like a hoot.

Spaceteam (2015)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Want To Play
I really love the Android app as a way to get a bunch of people yelling gibberish at each other. Based on that, I think I'd enjoy the card game too. It would fill a real-time, cooperative slot on my shelves.

Captain Sonar (2016)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Want To Play
On the one hand, Captain Sonar is supposed to be an excellent contribution to the genre, a real-time team-based version of Battleship that is full of excitement and nail-biting deduction and cooperation.

On the other, I rarely have 8, or even 6 players around, so I'm not sure it would see much play.

I think at this point (Feb. 2019), I would rather play this game than own it.

This is an expansion for Space Cadets: Dice Duel. Obviously, I'd want the base game first.

Supposed to be an awesome, quick push-your-luck game.

No Thanks! (2004)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
No Thanks! is supposed to be some great, surprisingly engaging filler.

I'm pretty sure it could be played with an Everdeck or Singularity Deck and some chips, so I'll probably go that route once I start assembling my game kit.

Splendor (2014)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Splendor is a classic engine-building game. It's low on my list right now because I already have other engine-builders and the app version. Plus, it comes in a huge box, and I'm not big on wasting space like that.

I don't quite know where on my shelves this one would fit, but publisher Keymaster Games always has phenomenal production quality, and this seems to be no different. I didn't enjoy Control a bunch, but I adore Space Park, and it's also kinda hard to classify, so we'll see.

If I'm looking for a gorgeous, colorful game, I'll probably get this, and it will always catch my eye on the game store shelves.

Arboretum (2015)
Wishlist(4)
 (Thinking about it)
Want To Play
I'm curious about this one, because it's definitely in the "small box, big value" category I love.

It looks like it could be hacked together with any extended card deck containing 8 ranks of 10 suits, although the art on this is so gorgeous, it's probably worth the sticker price.

Dixit (2008)
Wishlist(5)
 (Don't buy this)
Want To Play
A dreamier, more creative twist on the Apples to Apples format.

Feb 13, 2019: ...but upon reflection, I don't love the play-and-judge mechanic, and the idea of playing Dixit doesn't spark a ton of joy for me. I think I added this to my wishlist because I saw it as one of the "new classics", but I don't feel any desire to own it anymore.

I'd prefer The Metagame for more play-and-judge, or Mysterium for trying to decipher cards with cryptic art.

When I played this, I didn't enjoy the tangled web of deduction--it didn't make sense to me, and seemed too chaotic. This is another game that I put on the list early on when I felt compelled to get everything people thought were "modern classics", but today, games like Dracula's Feast: New Blood, Coup, and the upcoming Blood on the Clocktower are just more compelling examples of the genre to me.
