Which games have you picked up in 2015 then?

I thought it might be interesting to have a thread to show how our collections grow over the year that can also be used to track expenditure too if anyone wants to.

So far for me:

Any games in red have been sold or traded.

January
Escape: Zombie City and More Zombies! bonus module - £0.00*
Alhambra - £0.00*
Alhambra Card Game - £0.00*
Inka - £0.00*
Sushi Go! - £15.50
Red7 - £10.59
Sushi Go!: Soy Sauce and Alhambra: The Magical Buildings promos - £7.49
Thunderstone Advance: Worlds Collide - £35.52
Machi Koro: The Harbor Expansion - £16.99
Yardmaster Express - £8.10

February
Ticket To Ride 10th Anniversary Edition - £45.00
Fidelitas - Backed on Kickstarter and paid for last year.
Sheriff of Nottingham - £26.29
Sheriff of Nottingham Gen Con 2014 promo cards - £9.39
Sheriff of Nottingham Dice Tower promo cards - £8.72


March
Harbour - Backed on Kickstarter and paid for last year.
Saboteur - £9.94
Marvel Dice Masters Uncanny X-men Starter Set - £8.74
Love Letter: Batman - £10.05

Spent so far: £202.92

* These were all received for backing Escape on Kickstarter and were paid for last year so I'm not going to count them in what I've spent this year.

I've had a really good haul over the last few weeks.

Arkham Horror - birthday present from the Mrs. Would have preferred Eldritch but she just remembered I expressed interest in this in our local store.

Space Hulk Death Angel (about £18) - I fancied a single player card game and it's such good value.

Dead of Winter (full price - £49.99) - I was in Travelling Man in Manchester today and picked up their last copy. I've been thinking about getting it for so long and after having it actualy in my hands, I couldn't say no.

Legendary: Aliens (39.99) - on order, not received yet. Probably my most anticipated of the lot. After playing Space Hulk and seeing the post by Rab Florence on RPS, I'm pretty sure I'm going to love this.

Very happy with 2015 so far!

Despite owning the original, I've just had the Batman edition of Love Letter arrive. It has a slight edition to the rules where as if you knock a player out with Batman, who takes the place of the guards from the original, you gain a token as well as when you win a round. Rather than four, it is now the first person to get seven tokens that wins the game.

I went for the boxed edition thinking it would look a bit snazzier on the shelf, but assumed it would still have the drawstring bag that both the original Love Letter and other slightly cheaper Batman version comes with, but it doesn't. The cards come in an admittedly very sturdy box, but it is twice the size it needs so be and isn't as portable as a result. If I had known this beforehand, I'd have gone for the regular version.

It would appear San Juan second edition is now available in a few places. I've spent so much on games though I can't really justify it. I still haven't managed to get anyone to play dominion with me yet!

After all the anticipation, and frustrations I had actually receiving it, it has only actually hit the table once! As a result I can't fairly judge it yet, but it is *very* similar to Curse of the Temple and whilst slightly more involved, I think if you already own that then it would be hard to recommend picking up Zombie City as well. If you don't, then I suggest you watch something like the Shut Up and Sit Down review of CotT and if you like what you see, simply decide which theme appeals to you more.

So, ticket to ride nordic is back up for up pre order. I guess it's simply ticket to ride for less people? Not sure whether to get it or get something totally different.

I've had a bit of a binge recently (help!):

Having picked up Alhambra, Bohnanza and Cities of Burgundy when Amazon was offering a tenner off if you spend fifty quid last week, I've now ordered Jaipur.

Now to actually play them before buying more!
