And I'm behind on the painting.
Oz Fluxx - both copies of Fluxx that I own are rag-tag and incomplete. The girls like the Wizard of Oz, win/win.
Warlord: There are a pile of Zulu and Boer related goodies available this month, but this was the only thing that made me giddy. The character figs from the movie Zulu, originally only available in the Rorke's Drift boxed set, now available as a four-pack for $15.00. Here's hoping somebody has them at Cold Wars.
Money is No Object List: AND this is tax return month, so this might be a possiblity.
FORCE ON FORCE: BUSH WARS - AFRICA 1967-2010 $24.95 African Bush Wars have always interested me. Heck, I've always wanted to run RECON game in West Africa. From the smallest jungle skirmish to the biggest war, they seem to devolve into some Mad Max-ish battle.
Catan Junior: The kid version trades cities and roads for pirate hideouts and ships. I am interested, despite the $35.00 price tag. How can the traditional theme of wood, brick, and sheep too complicated for kids, so let's trade for rum instead!
The Order Book of the Pegleg Gnome (The If-I-Had-A-Store-List)
I'll admit I didn't get the appeal of Settlers or Apples to Apples before I played them. Euro boardgames met me with a "meh", so the idea of the mega-boardgame, high standard of production, quality playing pieces, etc, still escapes me. Sure, Arkham Horror is fun, but not every game needs to be Arkham Horror. And with a flurry of $60+ boardgames, the stinkers will come out. Here might be one of them: Mage Wars by Arcane Wonders. Choose between a Wizard, Warlock,Beastmaster, or Priestess, each with their own unique strategies and style ofplay; conjure your custom spellbook from over 300 spells; and let thebattle ignite! $75.00
Hmm...Limited player options, yet 300 spells means lots of randomness. And $75.00? This doesn't even come close to a classic, like Talisman, or even Arkham Horror. Seventy-five bucks? I predict this on the discount shelf on a lot of stores' shelves before they do inventory.
Army Painter Warpaints mega paint set $125.00 36 paints/inks/washes + 6 brushes
Army painter Starter paint set - $27.50 10 paints + 1 brush
The bottle size looks bigger than the tradtional dropper bottles. Could these bottles actually be an ounce or more? I will look at color selections of individual bottles at Cold Wars, but for now I'm sticking to the $1.19 Americana paints that are in 2 oz bottles.
Ars Magica: Apprentices $19.95
Doctor Who TCG: Remember the old CCG back in '96? The one that had one or two stalwart supporters, and the box of boosters and four starters nobody wanted was relegated to the corner with Wyvern, Galactic Empires, and Jyhad?Well this doesn't look like that.sounds more like trading cards with fun stuff on them then tcg/ccg in the modern sense, since they come in boosters and "extreme" booster. "Snap into a Slim Jim!"
Heavy Gear: 14 more items? Are these guys solely responsible for the increase in tin prices?
Expeditious Retreat Press: YAY GENERIC(ish) MODULES! As much as I complain about the era of d20, you had a variety of modules to choose from. I don't know if Expeditious Retreat is doing d20, Pathfinder, or is a licensee for 4th edition, but modules under $15.00 are always welcome.
Really, though? Fifteen bucks a module? Well, back in my day they were $5.95 and we liked 'em! Then again, I was making $3.00/hr, so it makes financial sense.
