Hello world!

I have started the boardgaming hobby on 30th June 2010 and I now want to write a list of my purchases and my impressions upon playing them.

At the end of the list I will add some of the games that I will most surely look to purchase in the near future.

With the introduction out of the way, let's go!


Notes:
1. The list is in chronological order and the ratings are 1(minimum) - 10 (maximum). The ratings are for the base game including the expansions unless stated otherwise. Also the rating tries to be somewhat objective and does not reflect the way my gaming group reacted to the game, but my personal overall opinion of it.
2. Comments, thumbs and GG are welcomed and all will be invested in getting geekbadge.
3. Be gentle, it is my first Geeklist.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. Greyjoy had to fill in as the last House.

Impression: I am pretty impressed by Greyjoy. They seem to be a decent on paper, but in the two games it played it got thrashed thoroughly by both Stark and Martell. There were close calls, getting to 14 and 11 power in both games, but ultimately it lost. I think I still need to learn the strategy. It seems like a rush-choke type of house.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. Baratheon is one of my favorite houses so this had to happen

Impression: I am pretty impressed by the expansion. 7 more plots, 2 new agendas and a whole bunch of useful cards. Made a deck for Melee and can't wait to see how that works.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. One in our group religiously plays Targaryen so I thought she might enjoy the added options.

Impression: It seems like a very powerful expansion with many bonuses to an already powerful house..or so it seems to me. The ability to get 5 duplicates on a character and incredible attachment control could very well settle this as the primary house.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. This one was the last deluxe expansion available at the time so why not take it.

Impression: It's a decent expansion with some must-have cards that gives Stark a little breathing room and new avenues for deck-building.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. Lannister is the latest big house expansion and it seems a pretty interesting one.

Impression: The Lannisters have some of the most appealing (to me) art and colors. Their cards play upon their incredible gold advantage and it will be fun to try this out.

Fluff Text: This was my Secret Santa gift for 2011. A bit late, but here nonetheless. This is a dexterity game so my quest for a good collection is closer to it's goal.

Impression: There is a lot that comes in this box and I actually played a quick 2-lap 2 player race already and it's really fun. I can see this becoming even better once we get the hang of flicking the tricky ball. Already got some extra track and balls in my sights.

Fluff Text: I finally gave in to the promise of light D&D goodness coop. Bought this really big box SH.

Impression: The previous owner was not very anal about the game and it shows. Creases on the rulebook, elastic bands on the cards, etc. I am only going to buy new games from now on unless there is some irresistible offer I must have. Overall, the game looks playable and the box is packed. Looked up some scenarios and there are a ton of those. It is promising!

Fluff Text: This game was highly praised by all who I have talked to and I did like my one play. It definitely needs all the seats taken, so this might be hard to get to the table, but worth it. Also, my BGGSS target had it in much praise.

Impression:I already played it once and even though it was another SH purchase, this one was in terrific shape. I ordered the expansion as well for the extra race and cards for a cheap price. I will have to see if my good impression holds up to more plays.

Fluff Text: And the cheap expansion has arrived.

Impression: This makes the original game, double and more. New upgrade cards, new Chaos cards, new Old World cards, a new race that handles totally different and more variety. What is there more to ask from such a small expansion?

Fluff Text:After trying the first installment of the series, I found this one for a bargain price and could not help it.


Impression: I like the theme in this 3rd edition much more than the vampire one and I hope this one will feel more balanced (easier). I like it that there are more heroes, more ability cards and some pretty interesting scenarios. Now if only I could get WoA...

Fluff Text: Along with the rest of the King's Landing Cycle (A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – City of Secrets, A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – A Time of Trials, A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – The Tower of the Hand, A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – The Battle of Blackwater Bay and A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – Tales from the Red Keep). My first complete cycle.

Impression: This cycle introduces the shadow mechanic that I think will prove to be a huge hit with some of the houses I play, while giving the other houses a bit of wiggle room. Now that I have almost 2 complete cycles I can try to do some serious Deckbuilding. Ideally, I would like to have 1 deck for Joust and 1 deck for Melee for each house that is balanced against each other deck in the said format. Also, I bought some binders and Ultra Pro sheets to store the cards in. It seems I got a bit over 1k different cards.

Fluff Text: My first participation in a MT and a Romanian one at that and I got this for my WoW:WW2 Deluxe Set. This was an interesting experience and I am sure I will try it again. However, I did not pay attention to the fact that it was the German Edition, so I have the Samurai cards with German explanations of abilities.

Impression: This game is wonderfully produced and the cards have a nice rubbery feel to them. The dice are big and chunky and the game was well taken care of. I will try to contact Asmodee to see if there is anything I can do to get the English Samurai Cards, just because I am anal about such things.

Fluff Text: My first participation in a MT and a Romanian one at that and I got this for my Elder Sign. This was an interesting experience and I am sure I will try it again.

Impression: The game is nicely produced, everything being thick and big. I like the wooden dice and the boards with the pegs. Lately, it seems that I get to play a lot of games about dice rolling so I thought I might give this a go.

Fluff Text: I did not have a highly rated game in my collection (top 3 or 5) so I thought about getting Twilight Struggle, just for the sake of having a CDG wargame in my collection. Just as I was about to pull the trigger I saw this beauty: theme + CDG = hype. Also, I wanted to see how the GMT's P500 system was.

Impression: Upon opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised. The counters look extremely good and they punched out cleanly. The cards are very evocative of the age and the mounted board looks gorgeous. The only bad thing I can say that about it is the fact that I would have liked a more punchy art. Maybe just the saturation slider adjusted 50% up. Also, props up to GMT's P500.

Fluff Text: Wanted some RPG since I started this whole boardgaming hobby, but I always hated the thick rulebooks and I was worried I might not have the necessary creativity required to be a good DM. This looked like a wonderful RPG-lite, choose-your-own-adventure game.

Impression: The game is wonderfully produced with a ton of cards and chits. Also, the nice thick player boards add a touch of sturdiness to the game. I can not comment on the gameplay or the spelling just yet, but I am sure I can overcome such petty nuisances. What I would love to see is Z-man releasing the rest of the expansions for this.

Fluff Text: Found this and all the 8 character expansions for an unbeatable price and took a leap of faith.
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Artumnis Moondream Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Dongon Swiftblade Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Brandon Lightstone Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Zowka Shattertusk Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Brebo Bigshot Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Shailara Witherblade Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Wennu Bloodsinger Character Pack
World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game – Thundershot Character Pack

Impression: Upon opening the boxes, I found classic FFG fare. A ton of chits and even more cards to pile up on everything. With all the small boxes adding content to the base game I think it will be pretty hard to get bored. The figures also look wonderfully sculpted, though the plastic will bend easily.
This game seems like a crossover between Runebound and Talisman. Not sure it takes the best of both worlds, but it looks like something shorter than Runebound and yet more involved than Talisman.
The only complaint component wise is that there are none of the newer races (blood elf, draenei, etc.) and even some of the older (ex:undead) and also the classes seem wrong (ex:hunter Tauren and no warrior/shaman). Also, I would have loved to see a bigger map (maybe the other half), but this is nitpicking.

Fluff Text: Along with A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – On Dangerous Grounds and A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – Trial by Combat making for my second complete cycle (A Tale of Champions).

Impression: These packs are the meat of this cycle with many incredibly good cards that will find a solid place in many builds. Have not had the chance to play a lot with them, but I feel that this cycle brings some very interesting combinations in play, especially for the multiplayer format.

Fluff Text: My first Kickstarter participation and I got the base game + the expansion + bonus units + the next game for an amazing price. I always wanted to try this game, since I like the artwork and it seemed like the type of short but interesting 1v1 game that is somewhat portable. Also, I got metal coins! Go owl!

Impression: The game is quite high quality and that is saying something from my point of view. I like the box and the metal coins are worth the extra dough I had to pay for shipping. The art is good, maybe a bit too rough for my taste, but good. The cards are very nice and thick and although they lack the linen finish of other companies, they feel very professional. I am really curious about how the 3-4 player game works and I will get back after that.

Fluff Text: I got this game as a special offer alongside Omen and for the price I just could not say "No". Even if I only play it 2-3 times, it will be well worth the money.

Impression: For the price, this game looks to be very good value. ~100 good quality cards and a bunch of plastic markers along with a nice ruleset make the game stand on it's own. It looks to be a short witty game and I think I will be glad that I decided to hop into it and take this one too. If it weren't for the offer, I do not think I would have ever noticed this game.

Fluff Text: I simply love AGoT LCG so it was just a matter of time till I started expanding it on a more serious level. I even got to compete in the local AGoT tournament which is just getting started with about 12-14 participants and actually won 2 of them. I started buying all the 3x cycles and this one (Defenders of the North) was the first one delivered since it was all in stock.

Impression: This cycle focuses heavily on the Wildings/Night's Watch themes, while offering a few must-have cards for the other houses. i am not a big fan of these themes, but I might build one just for fun someday. I have a feeling that Wildings will be a heavy Aggro deck out of Stark, while the Night's Watch might even fit with a Baratheon Deck.

Rating: See base game

Fluff Text: I loved the art from the minute I first saw it on BGG and after playing 1 game on BGA, I had to order this one. It just seems so fun, simple, fast and yet deep beer & pretzels game. More games should offer online demos and I am sure that will boost up sales and customer satisfaction.

Impression: The art is good and the insert is functional. The dice are nice and chunky and overall the game oozes awesomeness. The only complaint I have is that the card trays could have been deeper so as to allow sleeved cards to be placed back in the box. The insert has some unused compartments that makes me think about expansions. Fingers crossed for that!

Fluff Text: I am a huge fan of fantasy RPGs and this seemed like a no-brainer. Easier rules for tactical combat than it's predecessor, built-in campaign and great replayability out of the box.

Impression: I opened the box and had quite a puzzle game trying to fit it all back. Played one game as a hero with someone else's copy and setup was a bit of a chore. I am pretty sure I will have to be the overlord for my group, but we will see how it goes when I get there, but I have very high hopes.

Fluff Text: Along with Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – TIE Advanced Expansion Pack, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – Y-Wing Expansion Pack, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – X-Wing Expansion Pack, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game – TIE Fighter Expansion Pack. So one of each of Wave 1 Expansions and 2x Core sets so I can easily make 100pt battles.

Impression: The figures are very well made and I managed to store everything in the 2 core sets. However, I am not sure that I can still store all the extra Wave 2 expansions there. The extra dice, movement cardboard things and cards will be used and enjoyed and almost nothing (besides the unique pilots) will be wasted from a second core set. I have no impressions yet about it, but from reading the rules it seems like a nice game that will last long with regards to replayability, but it looks light on the rules. I just hope for more creative scenarios. I played a couple of 100pt battles and the imperials won both with quite a few ships left. I was amazed at how fun it was, though setup took quite a long time. Will need to play more to decide on a rating and a status.

Fluff Text: After playing it once, I had to have it. It is such an epic streamlined game that it makes me get excited just by thinking about it.

Impression: The box is full of goodness and it is really heavy. The components are of good quality and the attention to detail is amazing. The game just oozes theme and love from the designer. I also playtested the expansion and I can say that it will be an auto-buy for me as long as they fix the small issues our group had. I have not yet played, but when I do, it will be EPIC.

Fluff Text: Had to have the extra cards for the monsters that Reaper will pour my way.

Impression: The cards are ok, as expected from FFG. There is quite a bunch of extra heroes that should dramatically increase the replayability of the basic set.
