What board games are you BUYING?

I recently re-read Pat Mills’ Charley’s War which does a great job of highlighting the insanity and failure of trench warfare and goes some way to explaining why maybe it’s a difficult theatre to simulate in a game.
Best I've played is Paths of Glory, but my experience is pretty limited.

Kitchen sink design in desperate need of an editor. Way too many mechanisms not working in unison. All of the games it draws inspiration from far outclass it.
It certainly has some fans though and you may end up thinking I'm crazy.
The game is pretty awesome. I play it solo or with my 7-year-old, and I especially enjoy how easy it is to set up and get a game going. Also, the flow of the game is straight forward so it feels casual. I've yet to play with all the heroes, but the ones I've tried are very different.
I'm also itching to get Horrified, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Tried the tabletop simulator module yesterday and it seems like a good game. But the module was so slow that it soured the experience somewhat.
I've played the Starter Set with my local group and we really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to digging into the system some more.
i bought Blue Moon City the other day when Asmodee had it for $10 with free shipping. aside from that im not really buying anything these days.
Wow, for ten bucks I would have repurchased that game.
I just bought a copy of Wingspan for $35 that is missing the 5th player cubes and components. Since I only have four game players in my home, and really three I can count on, I consider this a bargain. I realize that at some point it probably comes down to luck, but it still seems like it will be something we'll enjoy. I'm avoiding any strategy articles.
