Games wish list

Whilst perusing Myke's Shelves O' GamesTM Friday night looking for Clue to play at Yudi's (he's a simple gaming kinda guy), I started tallying in my head some of the games he's introduced me to that I eventually want my own copies of (I already have my own Cosmic Encounter from years back, and I'm the one that introduced him to Bang and Killer Bunnies):

I don't know how many of these I could add to my Amazon wish list, but I wanted to write them down somewhere for future reference.



Updated 2/3/04:
  • Bought:
  • Added Jenga, dominoes, chess set, and Risk to list (check next time I'm home to see if the Risk set I have there is complete).
  • Keep checking back on sales (and supply) of new additions, plus Carcassonne (complete box set) and Apples to Apples (complete box set), all of which they had ample supply of


Updated 2/5/04: Added The Settlers of Catan



Updated 3/1/04:

Bought several games over the past few weeks:
  • 2/8 - Set, blank Fluxx cards, Five Crowns
  • 2/16 - Fluxx, Strange Synergy
  • 2/23 - Star Wars: Epic Duels, 3 card deck cases
  • 3/1 - chess/checkers/backgammon/dominoes set, The Settlers of Catan
Plus added Transamerica and Monopoly.



Updated 4/15/04:

Realized I missed a few additions from 3/5:


5/19/04: I rather enjoy Mutiny and Burn Rate, so I may add them in, too.



10/5/04: Played Lord of the Rings and might add that.



11/12/04: Need to add Frag, and maybe San Juan and/or Puerto Rico.



12/9/04: I'm thinking GemQuest, Ticket to Ride and the superhero game Myke got for his birthday.

I only played it once, but I really really like Fluxx. So very original!

I have played both Munchkin and Munchkin Foo, but not Groo yet. Must check that one out.

We like almost all of those games, as well as Save Dr. Lucky, Ebola Monkey Hunt, and Valley of the Mammoth. Why yes, we are huge gaming geeks, why do you ask?

my $.02
I'd also recommend

Unexploded Cow (just the premise alone, using "Mad Cow Disease" infected cows to clear abandoned mine fields)
Chez Geek (art by John Kovalik)(any game that gives you points for sleeping, drinking, screwing and watching tv)(and items like beer goggles help you get more points for screwing, hehehe)

both of which you can preview at Pennsic, as I'll have them each in the most fabulous campsite in Slippery Rock.

Re: my $.02
I've played Chez Geek (and Chez Dork and a couple of the other variations), but not Unexploded Cow yet.

I played Apples to Apples for the first time on Saturday with thinksnow and laserkitty. Man, that was some fun.

MWhahahahahahaha I have Kill Dr Lucky
great game

And you don't have Monopoly?

i blink at you

with so many tasty flavours of monoploy around i cannot believe you do not have it

i am thinking of making my own flavourful contributions to the Opoly menu

Like somehting for Pennsic (though i am sure it has been done before and if it has not i will be veryily surprised and lose weight) and of course something for Furry

of course a general Fantasy one with things like Bidding on Rivendale Landing on Deva Market Place and being sent directly to Mordor or Ravenloft could be fun too

Also if you really want a fun ass game check out http://www.rakgraphics.com/dwar/index.html
Dragon war Kicks ass and is a differnt game everytime you play
the cards become the board on which you play and the game is very funny and allows you to be as evil as you can be

i highly recomend it

I do have Star Wars monopoly, but I just want a good set of the original game. I think we have the deluxe set at home somewhere, maybe I'll gank it next time I'm home visiting Mom.

Oh, you mean Magic: The Game That Sucks Out Your Soul? No, never got into it. I look at CCG's like poison, as my habits are expensive enough to feed.

Never heard of the other two. What are they?

You should check out boardgamegeek.com if you haven't already. They have a way to keep track of the games you own (and rate them) as well as a wish list feature.

I've been meaning to do that for a while.

And I like your icon! I've been looking for a gaming icon for a while. I think I found one, but haven't finished shrinking it yet. :)
