Well four days into the new year and it was time to place an order. Good thing I didn't make any New Year resolutions like cutting back on boardgame purchases.whistle

Like last year, I'm keeping track of my acquisitions from the start of the year rather than the end of it. For those keeping similar geeklists, I recommend it as the way to go if only as a better way to archive your acquisitions as they occur. Feel free to thumb anything you think was a worthy acquisition. It helps validate my gaming impulses. And be sure to subscribe if you want to keep up with my "cult of the new" game gains. There always seems to be something to interest everyone, including wargamers (my acquisitions last year included about 30 of those), Euro fanatics, Ameritrashers, and even some miniature pushers.

One of the things I've done this year was add both the purchase price and location where I got the game. It helps me realize the sticker shock at the end of the year for game purchases. But then again, this is my hobby much like someone might be into classic cars, private aircraft flying, or antique collecting so I don't feel so bad about my addiction.

Last year was another great year with great games. Here's that year's list which pretty much has anything new I got up through the release of Eclipse.

My 2011 Game Gains (or The Boardgaming Money Pit)

Autumnweave, my arch nemesis local game collecting rival, has finally posted his 2012 acquisitions list here:

2012 game purchases for Autumnweave

Ah yes, and where to all these games go? To the Bunker of course:

The ULTIMATE game storage solution. Or, 20 steps to making a dream come true.

FINAL EDIT: My 2013 acquisition list is now posted:

Danga da Tanga. The price point for this one just hit the sweet spot. Can't pass on it for $10. A solid 7 Euro that's not an 18xx game. More of a "kitchen sink" game but most folks say everything seems to work well for a point grabbing game.

Danga da Tanga! Been looking for this one everywhere and nobody seems to have it. Now it pops up on Tanga for $30 which is a (relatively) good price. Maybe it will go cheaper somewhere but I thought I'd snag one before they're gone. I really like the fact that it supports 7 players according to Tanga which has become a new number when I get together with the neighbors and our kids (though I think it really supports 2-5 and someone at Tanga fat-fingered in the wrong numbers).

Note that this deal came with Belfort: Guild Promo Pack #1, same as the current deal direct from TMG.

I'm certainly getting my retro fix in this year. Here's one more to knock off my Grails wants, and a recent want at that. I was enamoured by the swiveling ship/sinking mechanism. Plus I think we're at the 100th anniversary of the sinking it just was nice to grab a bit of nostalgia on it in board game format. The right one in the right condition came along on EBay and I got it for $46.

Forgot I had this one pre-ordered. It just billed today and I got notice it should ship next week so I might as well add it to the list. All indicators are that this should be a good conversion of the board game into a hand management format. Looks like they billed me $25 for it (shipping included in that).

EDIT: 7/5/12 Got an email from GMT stating it shipped.

EDIT: 7/6/12 Arrived today and as a bonus it had the Promo Cards taped to the box.

Ragnar. You either like their games, or not. I am partial to their madness and they usually have good heavier Euro games. I got this one for $39 to get the free shipping from Gamesurplus. And, this is another one of their limited production runs of 1000 games. Not that it's hard to find but they won't be around forever and they haven't reprinted any of their past stuff yet.

Not sure why I got this. I know I've wanted it for collector value as it's the only Harry Potter game out there worthy of entertaining a strategy. Maybe somewhere down the road this will be one of those games you wish you'd picked up to give to a grandchild or something like that. It was cheap enough at my FLGS, Guardian Games for $24.

A wargame looooong overdue from my collection and a mate to Europe Engulfed, Gamesurplus had a ding-n-dent one for $23.50 which also gave me the bump for free shipping on my order. As for the game, I enjoy Europe Engulfed as an advanced Axis & Allies with the fog of war element. Asia Engulfed seems even more complex from a read of the rules but still offers interesting strategies and a much better feel for the naval and naval air operations of the Pacific than AA: Pacific.

This was another inevitable purchase. Having all the C&C line to include Abaddon is was just a logical progression to get this as well. I have the Barbarossa series and abhor having to put the minis together. I'm sure I'll have the same complaint with this game despite all the positive comments on how beautifully crafted the sculpts are. Despite that minor quibble, I like the system and this one offers two completely different ways to play the game which is great value. Thor at Gamesurplus has the best price around for this game at $52. Alas it's backordered at the moment so I'll have to wait as he backfills requests for it.

EDIT: Backfilled and received. Box inside stinks like a combination of goat ass and schwarmas. Hopefully it's just from the plastic bags from China that the bits are packed it. Picked up two more boxes of Asigaru-Arquebus units from CSI as well. Will eventually pick up two more boxes of Mounted Samurai to have some extra options. Still not excited about assembling all the units. Read the rules and it's straight-forward Borg C&C game mechanics with the honor tokens thrown in the mix reminding me of the Lore tokens in BattleLore.

So in the interest of full disclosure, I originally got this for the 4 painted minis that come with it to use in the Hogwarts: House Cup Challenge game above. Then after reading a few comments on this being a more balanced Star Wars: Episode 1 – Clash of the Lightsabers maybe this isn't a bad game after all. Either way, that should round out all my interest in any Harry Potter themed games out there for the foreseeable future. It was an Ebay purchase for $14.50 which isn't bad just for the 4 painted minis, though you might be able to thrift it for less.

EDIT: Nope, it's a bad game (maybe ok for small kids) and nothing like Star Wars: Episode 1 – Clash of the Lightsabers. Plus the one I got was missing a card and token so I'll just salvage the minis as originally planned and trash the rest.

So this seems like the quick fantasy skirmish type game that would appeal to me. I like the lighter theme and the card enhanced system with no dice. The minis look great and the bonus is that the figures can be used in all the other D&D board games I have. CSI price of $26.

And the partner game so I can get going on a 2v2 game from the start. At the entry point of $26 for the online store purchase price, it's good value to boot. Rounded out my CSI order putting it just over the top for free shipping.

I knew if I waited this one would go on sale. Mini Market has it for $50. Dungeon delvers have ruled my monthly purchases. Got this with the next game to get the free shipping. I like the way this one it themed to console games with cool card combos that can support each other. Looking forward to the expansion. Not looking forward to gluing minis together. That's probably what put me off getting it for so long.

Been looking forward to this one ever since iw was announced. Got into the series with Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations and shortly followed it up with Phantom Leader. Now we finally get down in the dirt. Looking forward to a Puff mission. I had $6 bonus to apply at Miniature Market bringing the price down to $52 for me on this one.

Thanks Doug. I would have gotten this eventually but glad you had an extra copy from Kickstart. Well worth the $35. And I'm glad to hear it's a cutthroat, backstabbing game, as a game about politics should be. As much as I like 1960: The Making of the President one of the peeves I had about it was that you pretty much go through every card in the deck once. One thing I like with this game is that there are more cards than needed to play through, and those even get reshuffled which would seem to add more variety into replays.

Just a few weeks ago I read up on this game and decided that I'd get it. Alas, it's tough to find right now online though I'm sure it will eventually have more widespread availability. However, perusing the shelves at Guardian Games I came across a copy and lucky me, it was 20% off Euro Game day so I snagged it for $48. I'm liking what I see so far. Hope to get this to the table soon.

Well last year I got Aliens: This Time It's War. This year it's this one from Artscow. They finally had a great deal for 3 multi-decks at $25 with free shipping. I'll probably get the 5/6 player expansion as well. It's like a movie themed version of Werewolf. Broke down and got the The Things 5/6 player expansion for it as well.

For some unexplainable reason I just had to have this. Maybe it's a throwback to one of the most enjoyable games I played on X-box when I still used to play console games. I love the Ring map but what sold me was the 2-player maps. I never picked up the Risk 2-player version so this one seems like it will do double duty. Apparently, the faction cards for each faction in this version do has some unique abilities to them. Almost forgot, $39 at CSI.

Played this Euro and liked it. Lots of options and optimizations to consider. Yes, it's a classic pasted on theme but the pre-planning aspect to choosing your actions all at once ala Wallenstein is a nice touch. Other than that, it's resource acquisition and building for points. Plays out in a nice time frame and isn't too hard to teach. CSI, $38.
