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:

Well it is the year of the kickstart and I've certainly picked up more of them than I usally do. This "castle defense" game looked interesting enough to pique my interest given its fantasy theme and combat aspects. Unlike Stronghold everyone seems to be playing against the same problem. But I like that you can pursue your own strategy for points. Got it on a BGG marketplace purchase for $58. It came with the promo kickstarter cards and the Dragon Valley Tourneys mini games. I'll need to pick up the BGG store promo card Hunt for the Fugitive as well now.

Saw this last year at Essen. Thought is was interesting but didn't have room for it. Got it on a BGG auction for $40 along with the next game.

Edit: Was going through my stuff and found the Helvetia: Wanderarbeiter aus Österreich that I picked up in Essen last year. It doesn't seem like it would add much to the game though.

And the other one off the auction. I gotta stay away from those. $42 on a BIN which is in line with the cheapest I could find in any online store.

One more Bulge game for my bulging collection. Been waiting for the 2nd edition of this and the price on TWS's Dutch Auction was too good to pass on at $27.50. This one has gotten some of the most praise I've seen for a Bulge game both for the "casual" player and Grognard.

One I've waffled on since it came out. I like the concept and the bits. It's a points based game bordering on a Warro. Most reviews say it has no relationship to Risk. TWS was clearing it out at $24.

Bigger IS better. Lately I've been interested in mini based board games again and both the game play and production value on this seemed fantastic. Got a ding n dent copy from Time Well Spent for $65.

Been waiting for this slugfest game to come out since it was announced. My type of game with minimalist rules, fast play, and lots of blasting. The comments about lack of depth don't bother me as it's not what I'm expecting from this game. Got it at TWS for $33 and they even had a ding and dent at $31 for anyone interested.

One more Nappy game for that collection. Who knows, maybe this will be the one to enjoy most if it plays quick with relatively simple rules. Best price I found on this as at TWS for $51 and it got me the free shipping.

Miniature market is having a great sale and has the best price around on this worker placement game. Normal price is prohibitive but at $38 it's in line with other solid Euro games. I've had my eye on this one along with the rating comments and it's a solid medium weight Euro with outstanding production value and beautiful artwork.

Another Euro that did okay last year at Essen. Good economics and strategy type Euro that I passed on then for better games. At MM's $27 price it's hard to pass on this time. You can also probably blame tweedlebeetle for getting me interested in this one again.

Yes, MM got some limited editions in at $20 a pop. Everyone else has been out of them and it's getting hard to find. Rounded out my MM order for free shipping anyway. Watched this unit played in an online video of the game and she has some neet abilities.

An inevitable purchase despite my other CMG's. I think this will find it's niche in my collection and will stand alone based on its merit. Got the base set at CSI for $26 along with a few extra units:
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – TIE Advanced Expansion Pack
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – X-Wing Expansion Pack
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – TIE Fighter Expansion Pack
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – Y-Wing Expansion Pack

Looking forward to some of the later releases.

EDIT: Picked up an additional core set and one more Y-wing. I can see where really will help to have the extra set of dice and movement templates, not to mention the extra 3 figures for less than the cost of 2 (retail).

Now out from Valley Games, this one was $16.50 at CSI. I got the enlisted Kickstarter so this one was a logical progression. Now I need to get someone to 2-player it with me.

Edit: 11/8/12 picked up the following expansions at MM for $16.
- D-Day Dice: Normandy
- D-Day Dice: Operation Neptune

Unique. Call it a retro purchase of interest that wasn't on my grail list. Got a copy off eBay for $25 with free shipping. Hope it works.

EDIT: It works. Coolest thing ever. Missed this one growing up in Europe or it would have impressed me even more back in the 70's. Collectors, get a copy while they're still reasonalby priced and somewhat easy to find.

A little while ago I was reading about the only attack on US soil for WWII and wondered if I had any games with scenarios about it. A truly heroic but tragic story for the Japanese forces. Anyway, this was in the Funagain Spring sale pile for $6 so I got it to round out an order.

For $2 it was almost like getting this free. Needed just a few bucks to put me over the free shipping at Funagain and this was available. I read the rules and they don't seem as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be. The components look pretty sturdy and I think if you eliminate any rules related to the dexterity part of the game it seems like it would be a good family game.
