It seems we are always ready to expand our game collection. This is a list of game that we acquired in the month of October.

Feel free to list what games you acquired this month and if they sit unopened, have been played many times, or you traded away after just one play. Feel free to add how you got them and if you think you got a good deal.

Got this in a Math trade. While it was open, it was like in brand new condition. Was able to get this for a $35 gift certificate, which was nice cause I did not need to ship anything.

Still sits un-played, waiting for a good war gaming partner.

One of my Grail Games.

I have been trying to get this for years now. I remember seeing in the store and wish I had bought it.

I found a user here on BGG that was looking to trade it. He wanted to trade for some of my games but the shipping cost alone would have added another $40 - 50.
So I bought him three new games from coolstuff in totaling $122. He got three brand new games and I got a grail game for a good price, with no tax or shipping costs. Seemed like a good deal to me and he got three brand new games.

Still not played, but I have read the rules and it looks awesome.

One of the few AnA games I don't have.

Well I do now. Got this in a math trade for a $25 gift certificate. Can't wait to give this one a try, but I have not received it just yet from the other end of the trade.

Got the second edition of this one, and the pieces are fantastic. They definitely made up for the quality of the first one. Everything has been punched and counted, but I haven't played it yet. Hopefully within the next week or two.

Also picked this one up on Amazon, but haven't played it yet. I think this one will be easier to integrate than the Napoleon one, since it is more of an extension to the regular gameplay instead of turning it into a war game.

My friend also picked this promo up for me. I used it once, and a friend used it once. When I played with it, it's extra power (Broadsword of Might) was activating very often and was very useful. We still lost, but we would have probably lost a little bit quicker if we were using the regular Paladin.

Since I got the one for Legend of Drizzt, and already had the promo for Castle Ravenloft, I had to round out my collection, especially since we would be starting Wrath of Ashardalon soon. So I found a user on here willing to trade for a CSI gift card. The Kobold Champion has already shown up a few times in our sessions.

Paid a bit too much on eBay for two expansions combined, New Buildings and Nobles. Seems they came from a busted up Alea Treasure Chest, so they are missing the forest tiles. Oh well. Live and learn.

Since I bought the base game the month prior, I should have saved my money and waited to buy this:

CSI order. I've had my eye on this for a while now. Finally got it. Played twice so far, but only two-player. Looking forward to getting it back to the table many more times, hopefully with three or four players. Vastly under-rated game on BGG and deserves more attention than it gets.

A modern "classic". I put off getting this because of the Analysis Paralysis "stigma" that seems to appear in some of the reviews. Played three times so far, two player, once each with three and four. Sort of a "ziggurat" theme this month. Assyria for building them, Tikal for discovering (and uncovering) them hundreds of years after they were abandoned, only on a different continent.

Wolfgang Kramer seemed to be another "theme" this month, this being the 2nd game of his (the other being Tikal).

I'd played it previously with three and with five and liked it. Had 2nd thoughts about it as most of my gaming is 2-player these days. Found it to be amazingly good as a 2-player game, so much so that my non-gamer roommate is now playing it online at SpielByWeb as well as face-to-face sessions. This might just deserve a closer look as an intro-to-the-hobby selection.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Picked up The Resistance, and it has yet to be played. However I did play this at a Con before I bought it and it was very fun. This should see some play next month.
