Last year was a bumper year for boardgames. I think I bought more new boardgames, especially new releases, than in any previous year.
I think this year has to see a reduction in the number of games that I buy in favour of playing the games I have more often (or even for the first time!)
So, my plans for boardgame purchases this year are quite small:
Memoir ’44 – As previously mentioned, I had the core game as a Christmas present, and so I will be keeping my eyes open for expansions for this game.
Battleground Fantasy Warfare – I’d like to get the remaining factions for this game that I don’t already own, plus the Kingdoms expansion is a must. Also, the release of the Historical version of this game is on my shopping list.
Martin Wallace – I am fast becoming a big fan of Martin’s games, and there are at least a couple on my ‘got to get’ list for this year. Heading this are Brass and Waterloo, but several of the Treefrog games planned for this year look interesting.
Battlelore – Hopefuly, the Heores expansion will be released for this game this year…this will be a ‘must buy’
Tannhauser – Hopefully, FFG will release some more expansions for this game this year. Operation Novgorod should come out in the first quarter, and I hope that they release more of the single figures for this game.
Vikings – I’ve played this game online at yucata.de several times, so I think it’s time to buy a copy.
Reef Encounter – another classic game that I have played online that is now on the shopping list.
Red November – looks to be a ideal large multiplayer game for the pub
Actually, looking at the list, there is still quite a few titles there, and it doesn’t take into account events such as UK Games Expo.
