Last game you bought?


#4081

Sounds like you need a nice velvet lined travel dice tray. Stay stealthy and expose yourself as the geek you are at the same time!


#4082

Um, the photo shows different, I think you missed by about half a metre :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#4083

Good call, I’ll look into that!

Bit sassy :stuck_out_tongue:


#4084

Oaxaca


#4085

I moseyed into my local game store to waste some time the other day, and the owner informed me that I have a credit on my frequent buyer’s club account, so I picked up Revolution! by Steve Jackson for less than $30. I worked in the auction world for many, many years, so blind bidding games have a special place in the cobweb-lined corner of my war game-obsessed brain.


#4086

It was one of my early “modern” games (I was and still am a Man in Black, but I got into that through GURPS demos) and I still enjoy it. Alas, it’s out of print and quite hard to find now.


#4087

My copy of Root showed up last night. Will have to wait till next week for the Riverfolk expansion.


#4088

The place I go to is ostensibly a comic book store, but has an amazingly large and eclectic game and miniatures section.


#4089

Bought Railroad Ink and Quacks of Quedlinburg with payday money. Good thing I purchased Quacks before their review! :joy:


#4090

Also bought Quacks - the SUSD review was the last push needed to convince me.
Fortunately it’s widely available and inexpensive in Germany since the Kennerspiel award.
Also pre-ordered the German Wingspan edition - it’s not inexpensive, but also first class component-wise, like all Stonemaier Games.
Plus I’ve been hearing almost universal praise everywhere, including here.


#4091

I was finally convinced that I need to add this to my collection… But it’s a perfect candidate for my wishlist. It’ll reliably be on the shelves sure a while (as soon as it is at all at my FLGS). Hopefully I’ll get a copy for my birthday in July


#4092

I bought Fog of Love the second I finished listening to Podcast #68 this morning. I had seen the video review some time ago and was really interested in it, but after listening to the podcast I had to have it. Straight in the basket despite not knowing if I’ll get to play it any time soon.

I also bought Love Letter Premium as my group doesn’t have it yet and it’s always have a nice bit of variation in your appetiser/palate cleanser/dessert games.

Finally I bought some blank cards so I can make a custom version of The Resistance for my group. I always end up being the spy somehow, so I’ve changed all the spy cards to pictures of me.


#4093

Quacks of Quedlinburg, the SUSD review pushed me over the edge


#4094

My copy of The Estates landed on my porch this morning while I was out running errands… Now to find some suckers with which to give it a go… So that I can lose horribly… Because this is certainly the type of game I am least good at: clever timing auctions with bluffing and brinkmanship.


#4095

I guess it was trades and not purchases, but I just recently acquired Ethnos and Clans of Caledonia. I am excited to get both of those in here! I don’t know much about Clans, but I have read great things. Ethnos has been near the top of my wish list since I got into the hobby at the very beginning of last year. So I think a pretty good return :slight_smile:


#4096

My wife and I agreed to each have a small splurge from our tax returns. I’ve been interested in El Grande ever since reading SU&SD’s review and watching their How-to-Play. However, it’s always been somewhere between $80-100 if not more. Noticed the banner ads on BGG show it for $55 on Amazon so it should be arriving sometime tomorrow.


#4097

Yup, tempted to get one for me in the UK. Even after the postage it’s still cheaper than buying locally


#4098

Finally scored a copy of A Study in Emerald First Edition. It’s been my grail game for a while

…and I bought Junk Art, Arkham Horror Circle Undone and New Frontiers

New Frontiers wins the “obviously designed with a Kallax in mind” prize! I’ve never seen a game fit into the cube so snuggly!


#4099

Once I get the time I’m very much looking forward to writing my article “A statistical analysis of the rise and rise of the medium square box in board gaming.” Might need a pithier title.


#4100

Pretty soon all Kickstarters will be determined by how many minis can fit inside a cube the size of a Kallax.
