Eldest going to Westfield’s with wife, to spend some Christmas money. Wife comes back with Lost Ruins of Arnak. Says she’s not going to justify it 🤪

Love the Euro games since being introduced to them a couple of years ago.

Have:
Revolution
Settlers of Catan
Stone Age
Forbidden Island
Forbidden Desert
Ticket to Ride
7 Wonders
Cards against Humanity
Carcassone, with the expansions that aren't stupid (like the dragon).

Plenty want to get a hold of, that have enjoyed playing others have brought along. The two want to get next are Age of Empires and Pandemic.

Also always on the look out for ones that are decent as two player games (as my wife is a Euro-game fan as well) or three players and suitable for kids 8+ (as currently indoctrinating the eldest son in the world of the geek).
Ah, the innocence of not long after being introduced to 'proper' board games. 'You'll like this game', she said. 'We'll try it out' we said.
Then:

And the 'This will be filled before too long as well' shelf.

Latest Kickstarter arrival - Creature Comforts. Nothing really new in terms of mechanics, but great art, doesn’t take too long and is light enough those who aren’t regular gamers could handle.

Picked up Tsuro and Under Falling Skies yesterday.

Haven't played Tsuro yet but Under Fallings Skies is a ripper for a quick solo game.

Completed the Century trilogy with the elusive Eastern Wonders picked up. Also the deluxe version of Tidal Blades arrived. I’m not sure they could make the box any wider 😳

Latest Kickstarter arrival - Monsters on board. Backed by wife, with the expansion, but didn’t go for all the upgrades (damn more games then money).

Bought another map pack for Cartographers and am chasing down a set of stamps to use with the game, to trick it out a bit.
