Let me start by saying that, no, I don't expect...

We all have a soft spot for the latest and greatest board game that's coming out next. After all, it'll be better and more wonderful than the game that came before it, or so we're told.

But still a few months to go before Etherfields arrives for you ... now THAT will be a new experience (I even late pledged for it in December :whistle: )

I do the BGG Math trades to get different tastes in ... and buy too much new shit :pinch: .

I also have Bullet arriving sometime later this month. Looking forward to that. Maybe by the end of April I will be able to see Francie and play her games. Will probably be a while before I can see Josh, my regular supplier of new game experiences.
