What board games are you BUYING?

Let us know how it is, please! I loved reading Frank's impressions.
Just to provide a contrast with the good Dr., I'd much rather spend an unusual amount of money on an unusual (good) game. Something that is trying to blaze some new ground and not being 100% successful rather than a great genre game in an established niche. The city/season thing sound cool and the roguelike aspect of being so hard to survive and permadeath is interesting.
I could do without the miniatures, but oh well.
That's exactly why I bought it. I am much more likely to buy a game with an off the beaten path theme and/or setting.

Chapel: Check this link, there's two copies of Magic Realm. First copy is 76$, other copy was unsold in the auction and is complete, 1st owner, etc.
The proprietor said he got them up direct from FFG. I guess being in the FFG network has its advantages.
Sounds like Cthulhu Wars original kickstarter will be shipping next week - will be watching ebay and other markets and seeing if I can grab some of the expansion stuff. I'd love to play my copy more but it needs a fifth faction to work in most situations for me.
They also were selling the core set of Star Wars: Armada for the same price, and I almost made that choice instead. But the add-ons are more expensive for Armada, and being a longer, two-player-only game, it really wasn't a hard choice.
