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: This was bound to end up in my collection to fill it to completion.

Impression: Always nice to have an extra color, extra 20 aliens and all the extra goodies like cards and tokens. This is just iceing on the cake. No way I will ever get to play all 110 aliens not even each once.

Rating: See base game

Fluff Text: This was my second P500 and quite a decent one at that.The charging period was a bit long, but I was ok with that since the shipping took less than 10 days to reach me.

Impression: Upon opening the box I was pretty happy at what I found in there with just one complaint that was more an oversight of mine. The map is hard cardstock instead of mounted. The wooden blocks are a decent size, though a tad small for my taste. The art on the cards is small, but the game promises to be big in the classic Kingmaker style. I will have to plow through the rulebook and see.

Fluff Text: Another kickstarter, this one had a very quick turnaround. It did not have a myriad of stretch goals, but it was delivered on time.

Impression: The production value is way better than the one of the 1st edition of the Resistance and the tokens are way better than cards. The extra anime goodies and Lancelot are cherry on top of the cake. I still believe that the insert could be thought out better and that the box could be made smaller, so as to be easier to carry around. I just might fit the whole game in a deckbox with dividers.

Fluff Text: Penguins game that is small, portable yet strategic. That must be FFG marketing hype, but I'll bite.

Impression: There is a game in the box. An actual strategic game that plays a lot like some sort of a GO-lite. The penguins and the fish are really thematic and you will find yourself saying the name of the game more than once. This is a pretty light game and when treated as such it is going to be incredibly successful. And for 8 Euros I cannot ask for more.

The next games that are in my sights are:

King of Siam (it seems to be really good with 3)
First Train to Nuremberg (saw a walkthrough of the game and no collection is complete without a train game and this one seems just fun)
AGoT:LCG - A clash of Arms (when it gets reprinted 3x)
Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients (up to 9 players and extra stuff!)
Merchant of Venus (cause it sounds really cool)
Clash of Cultures (for my Civilization gaming needs)

Preordered:

AGoT:LCG - Beyond the Narrow Sea, A Time of Ravens cycles
Android: Netrunner
DrunkQuest (KS)
The Fallen City of Karez (KS)
Reaper Miniatures Bones: Vampire Level (KS/not really a boardgame)
The Duke
Sun of York
Dominant Species (3rd Printing)


Undesirable companies*:
Portal

*it means I will never buy something first hand from said company, I will try to trade or buy it used, if I can't help it.
