Does the collection of lists always start so early in the year?

Can't remember. However, it has given me a good start to this year's Spiel. It's a real mixed bag this year. I wonder how many of these I will end up buying?

EDITED: Now includes final booty call of stuff purchased and stuff dropped.

Love the theme, design and counters. Not a great reason to buy a game but we'll see.

Edit: and of course, the pre-order gets me the Arctic promos too.

Pre-ordered without knowing the price!!

My first train game and a great theme.

Edit after the two comments below, taken from one of his posts, which I posted on Yellohat previews...

Tony Boydell said this in one of his articles on here ([geekurl= http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/761291/an-overview-of-snowdo...]Overview of the game[/geekurl]):

"If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to post them here OR send them/pre-orders to feedback@surprisedstaregames.co.uk"

Although no pricing at this time. I have already expressed my interest in a copy... Which may be crazy if the price is high...

Want this now, and since now going to appear early at Essen, it had to go on this list.

Missed getting a copy of Mall of Horror, so assuming this will be the next best thing...

Was interested in this originally, purely on the graphics. If I was at Essen, I would pre-order, but as I am not, can't afford to pay €10 shipping on top of a €15 game.

Unkle's Geeklist re-ignited my interest in it. I can't help being a Francophile.

Will wait to see if it comes to the UK and keep an eye on reviews.

Whilst not an instant purchase (have to be choosy these days), I am interested in this after the wonderful K2 Adam designed.

I will see what feedback comes back from Essen before making a decision. Am intrigued to read the rules. Not long now, hopefully.

Ooo Ooo, can my good friend manage to bring both of these back for a charitable donation, instead of paying $10 next year from the BGG shop?

My mate bought this for me by accident (I hadn't asked for it). However, at £8, I feel I can't let it go to someone else... Sorry, guys
