So I am starting to count my chickens before they hatch, and have been obsessively looking at games that I can get for my success this month.
First my brag: I have maintained at least a half hour of exercise and maintained my caloric goals for the last month. I lost 8 pounds, and have have improved my resting pulse and endurance considerably.
The problem I run into is this: I have recently been buying games that play in about an hour, but I am beginning to feel that I have too many games of that style in my collection. So I start thinking about larger games. But the longer games that I love that I currently own (CitOW, BSG, Tikal, and Puerto Rico) just don't get played, and the possibilities of getting them to the table seems to be less and less.
Second problem is that I rarely have more than one opponent. I play against my brother or against my girlfriend, but rarely at the same time. Due to schedule issues, playing with 4 or 5 almost never happens, and 3 is only a little better.
The games I have been eyeing up recently include:
Age of Steam or one of the other permutations of it
Lords of Waterdeep
Mice and Mystics
Through the Ages
Merchants of Venus
Merchants and Mauraders
Kings of Tokyo
Please do not limit yourself to those options, but what do you think I should get?
