This is great news - superb game. Easy to teach and a great gateway into Puerto Rico.

I've had a little bit of a splurge over the last month and picked up some gems...

<a href="http://imgur.com/1WfX4Hm"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/1WfX4Hml.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

I managed to get the lot for less than £130, which I'm well chuffed with. A copy of Gears popped up on Amazon the other week for less than £40 which I had to snap up seeing as it's like rocking horse doo-doo normally.

Sherlock Holmes seems to be back in print as I got a new copy for £25. Robinson Crusoe and 7 Wonders I picked up during the recent Amazon £10-off offer, when 7 Wonders coincidentally happened to be cheap.

Finally I had pre-ordered Hostage Negotiator for £18. All-in-all I'm pretty delighted. No more games for a while now, I think the Mrs will put a stop to that!

Just ordered Stone Age from Amazon.de having blitzed the iOS game recently.

Seems to be out of stock here but worked out at £25 inc delivery from Germany.

Nice work, we played that this weekend and loved it.

Since I last posted in this thread I've picked up Avalon, Hanabi, Mascarade (plus its expansion) and Citadels. I still have a long Christmas list too :thumbs:

Taking this thread into 2016, I've just ordered Keys to the City London and Viticulture Essential Edition. Exciting :dork:

Concordia
Viticulture
Isle of Skye
Fungi
Port Royal
Burano
Village
Archipelago
Condottiere
Libertalia
Istanbul
Trambahn
Last Will

I also have Snowdonia, Targi, Tiny Epic Western, Milestones and The Mines of Zavandor, all of which I'm yet to play.

As an update to the last post, I've now played Snowdonia and loved it, as well as Targi which is also great.

I've also acquired The Gallerist and Vinhos Deluxe. I played The Gallerist solo this evening and it's really good. Yet to try Vinhos but I imagine it won't disappoint!

Wow. Impressive, so many! I've not heard of half of those.

I've picked up Pandemic Legacy for the family for Christmas.

I've gone a bit mad in the last few months! If you'd like info on any of the above, let me know!

Pandemic Legacy sounds fun – interested to hear how you get on :thumbs:

Nice! I love Great Western Trail. Alexander Pfister is my favourite designer.
