Yeah, that's where I am, too. If I acquire any new games, it's from trading only. Something has to go out for something to come in. I have a couple Kickstarters that will be coming in over the next few months, but I haven't signed on to a campaign since Tiny Epic Dungeons (which is one of them) and don't plan to join any others for the foreseeable future. I'm just going to spend time with what I have (barring trades; sent out five requests on BGG the other day and have received all of one response...) until I feel like I've reached a level where something new would really be worth it. That's, uh, going to take a while.

I got a promotion and raise at work. I'm now a Senior Data Analyst and it was a pretty significant raise. I'm celebrating with a bottle of good Scotch and a couple of games.

Maglev Metro - don't know much about it but it looks like something I'd like.

High Frontier 4 All - They'll kick me out of DSA as an ideological traitor for buying a Phil Eklund game and they'll be right to do it. It makes me itch all over but dammit I've been wanting my own copy of this for ages. This weekend I'm clearing off the Lego table (so long, Tenenbaum House) so I can start soloing this guy.

You’re not alone, I bought HF4all recently and my son and I spent all of last weekend lobbing solar sails around Mercury and colonising the outer planets, and very much looking forward to doing the same again this weekend. Terrific stuff.

Nadurra, and Leaving Earth if you’re looking for recs. Congrats on the raise.

You want my Maglev Metro? I’m not gonna play it. Good game, but not my thing.

Thanks for the offer Sag, but a copy is already currently winging its way towards me, due to arrive Sunday.

I'm definitely interested in trying Leaving Earth, but not sure if I want to pony up for it.

HF4A will take a little longer, Thursday of next week. The DSA is going to kick me out as an ideological traitor for buying an Ekland game, and they'll be right to do so, but it's the only one (other than Pax Porfiriana, which I already own) that I'm interested in.

As for the Scotch, I like really peaty, smoky stuff. Last bottle I got was BenRiach and I really liked it.

Picked up a clearance copy of Blitz Bowl season 2 for $24 from Barnes and Noble today. Pretty stoked about that one.

Osprey have a sale on at the moment so I decided to get a copy of Judge Dredd Wildlands with the Dark Judges - £25 shipped in the UK which is fire-sale pricing, no idea what their international shipping costs are like though. There is some Frostgrave stuff on discount as well which I know is popular with some people on here.

I'm trying to talk myself into Pax Pamir 2nd edition. It's $90 shipped. I owned the first and sold it thinking I would just snap up the new version. That was a few years ago.

The rules are substantially better/more accessible than the first edition. And a rarity these days, the game has JUST the right amount of production value. Box holds everything, not too big or small. But most importantly after bouncing hard off the first edition game play wise I found this edition MUCH easier to play and now its got a regular spot in my "bring to random gatherings" to see if anyone wants to play.

At some point down the road it will go OOP and I suspect it will hold its value, if not get more expensive.

I just bought an unplayed version of the first edition for $43, shipped, and downloaded the print and play files for the 2nd edition, and located the 3d printing files for the 2nd edition knockoff components, so I may be playing some form of Pax Pamir in the near future.

I just picked up this on an impulse --

https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/comments/tw28ru/deepest_valley_its_a_zine_its_a_wargame_the_map/
File Attachment:


$34.90 shipped. Granted, might have done better with Tiny Epic something-or-other but at the price I just couldn't leave it be when the publisher talked it up.

I love the packaging on this thing. Its simple, uses off-the-shelf parts including mini-dice that don't serve any purpose other than representing their color. Ultra simple Dudes game, fits in a small ziplock.

A guy on reddit more or less said, "I want better production value" which I think is the new phrasing for "component quality". That's fine, but the more I thought about it the more I think getting a good game that will fit into a ziplock (and not even a big one) is a premium feature. I'm tired of the pile of boxes all banging up against each other in my closets.

I think you're going to see a lot of publishers wanting smaller boxes thanks to the high cost of shipping containers.

This thing cost $4.90 to ship. So when it's time to move it on to someone, I slip it into an envelope and send it on the cheap. It's ideal, it's easy. Nobody is looking to ship their copy of Gloomhaven no matter how done they are with it.

Just bought my first games in ages. Picked up Millenium Blades and Renature both secondhand. Just about to offload a bunch that have left my collection but are just sitting around waiting to get sold.
