What board games are you BUYING?
Speaking of OOP, Dungeon Twister the Card Game. Seems like it's just Dungeon Twister with some slight tweaks to make it work without pawns. I've always found the idea of this one interesting but never had a chance to try it. Here's hoping it's good mechanically, because it's certainly not good looking.
I went there to preorder Judge Dredd and then I went perusing...what a mistake
Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth (Preorder) OSPGAM020 1 $23.80
Unlock! Expedition: Challenger (Preorder) ASMNLK12 1 $11.99
Unlock! Scheherazade's Last Tale (Preorder) ASMNLK11 1 $11.99
Unlock! Night of the Boogeymen (Preorder) ASMNLK10 1 $11.99
Ganz Schon Clever (That's Pretty Clever) (Preorder) SG6025 1 $13.99
Escape Tales: The Awakening (Preorder)
In the last 3 months I've bought more games than the last 2 years combined, probably.
We are hooked on the Exit and Unlock games, and Time Stories. Like, madly in love. All the jokes I told on the D+D podcast about going back in time and rebanging hookers has come to fruition. I literally did EXACTLY that in the Estrella drive one.
We have the latest Exit! games, and the Sinister whatever (insert word for mansion) one is deliciously evil. It's not hard, but there is one puzzle that is just so well thought out that I want to find the person who came up with it and shake his or her hand. It's just fantastic.
This one is SO perfect, in fact, that I (luckily) photocopied the bits that may or may not have had to be ripped so that I can re-use it as a teaching game to get some newly-interested friends' (who I never ever ever thought would be into games) feet wet with the concept of how these games work.

Oh - and I also put $1 placeholder pledges on the new Western Legends expansion and Map Maker Adventures pencil & paper rpg .... shit, shit, shit stop it.

I bought it purely for being a board skirmish game for when I'm just down to two of us with an hour or so to fill. Never played Warhammer stuff but it sounds like a great skirmish game and that's all I need.
I played the original and liked it, but it didn't survive a move-centered purge. I'm in a civ game kind of place, and even though I don't have a lot of opportunity to play heavy Euros right now, it's what I'm looking for right now.
Personally I bought New Frontiers , as it seems like a game my wife will like and a game that should hopefully see serious repeat play in my usual game group.
