I took the plunge this week and made the big Xmas order of games. As Ann is going to the USA to see family for Xmas on a 4-week trip, I thought I would order in the USA and have her bring it home mid-January, avoiding all the nasty postage.

The order was a good size, mostly older games I wanted, with two recent releases.

Cartagena
Fleet
Le Harve
Takenoko
Star Fluxx
Discworld: Ankmopork
Sheepland
Domaine

I have managed to play Cartagena (thanks Peter, a great game) and Takenoko while at BGbtB Hamilton. The rest are new to me except for some reviews. Takenoko has family appeal plus strategy and looks fantastic. Le Harve is a big game without the Agricola pain. Sheepland looks to be a nice short euro strategy. Star Fluxx for some rather unserious fun with certain people over a beer. Discworld will have good appeal to our two youngest who are now going to be reading the books. Fleet looks like a nice little auction game, although not a short one.

I have not made a purchase for some months, so this will see me into 2013.

Whats on your Xmas shopping list?

Gordon

I got a bunch of games from the GMT Fall Sale, many of which will be diverted to the Christmas tree.

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

Some good choices there Gordon.

I've got no money for games this Christmas. I blew it on Kickstarters and business has not been good lately.

Not that you were suggesting this but just in case anyone assumes Discworld: Ankh-Morpork is just a kids' game. It is a lot of fun but it is still an adult game.

I do get worried that sometimes people think unless your forehead is bleeding from the stress, the game concerned is only for kids.

@ Eric We will be there so keen to give it a go.

@ Sam I got that its a good game, just one of the many reasons was to get the girls into reading someting else, develope their tastes, and I think this is just extra incentive. Once they start who knows if I will be allowed to play other games.

They're pretty smart, well that was my limited observation from WellyCon. and I'm sure this game will get a lot of table time.

Re: Done the Xmas games order
They are rather quick.

We also are grabbing Tobago and Noblemen (a very current recent release). Might be adding one more, the additional baggage fee will be interesting.
