The year 2010 is now long gone. Long live 2011! It's now time to start focusing on a fresh crop of new games to fill our ever dwindling closet space. One of my little mental diversions is to continually polish my shopping cart at the on-line deep-discount retailer du jour (Coolstuffinc at the moment). I add games, think about them, remove them, add them back in, etc., and eventually gather enough momentum to pull the trigger.

Here is what is currently bouncing around the cart:

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game - Essentially the sequel to last year's Castle Ravenloft game. I'm a sucker for big plastic, Ameritrash, dungeon crawls, especially ones that don't take 8 hours and leave everyone at the table angry (I'm looking at you, Descent!).
  • Thunderstone: Dragonspire - Because the thousand card sleeves this game has already consumed is not yet enough. I'm not yet convinced this is actually a good game system, and I dislike the setup and shuffling, but I find the actual gameplay exciting and rewarding.
  • Cosmic Encounter: Cosmic Conflict - An expansion for the best game I never play. More aliens, including some that have decades of playtesting behind them is a good thing. Perhaps I'll show up one Monday with this in tow.

So... what is on your wish list?

I'm curious about Hornet Leader. I'd like to hear your thoughts once you get that one to the table.
