No timeline on when I play these, but this is my running list of games that have either been recommended to me or that have caught my eye as things I want to try at some point in the future.

Also includes games that I'm pretty convinced I want to play/buy, but have yet to see in the wild.

Learned about this from Mike P. This sounds like a fun addition to games night.

Greg recommended as a good war game to try out. Tim P gave me a rundown of the things he likes and doesn't like about it. I'm willing to give it a try but sounds like there may be too much randomness for me.

Greg and Glenn recommended as a war game for me to try out, since I want an introductory taste of the genre. Not sure the period of time has any interest for me, though, and Tim P. says he wouldn't suggest it for my first war game. So, we'll see.

Another one Greg and Glenn recommended as an intro war game, but Tim P disagrees.

Margaret's suggestion for an intro war game. Tim P., predictably, disagrees that it would be a good one to start with.

Tim P. owns. I think he may have suggested this after I posted about Marrying Mr. Darcy. Started learning the rules on Int'l Tabletop Day 2016, but didn't have a chance to play.

A friend (maybe Ron?) told me this was disappointing. But I'm keeping it on the list because it looks so pretty and also Cthulhu.

Had a chance to play at Gamex 2016 and passed on the opportunity... why did I do that?? I could have knocked it off the list!
