broke them down into three categories: Buy, Maybe and No. Within
maybe there's some more likely than others. Several of the "No"
games are quite good, just not for me.
- Race for the Galaxy: I can hardly wait
- Caylus Magna Carta: For me, standard Caylus will be completely obsolete
- Notre Dame: Good to see Alea "back on track"
- Friedemann's auction prototype: Can't say more
- Baumeister von Arkadia: A surprise hit
- Capes & Cowls: Fun, I love the theme, almost certainly will get it
- Volle Wolle: Yet another entertaining Zoch dice game. Probably worth it.
- Colloseum: Probably. But not definitely.
- Thurn & Taxis For Power & Glory: Probably, but I'm not sure I play enough T&T to make this worthwhile.
- Pillars of the Earth: 3 or 4 years ago, this would have been a definite yes, probably a buy still
- Tumblin Dice: probably too large/expensive, but fun
- Huang Di: probably not a buy for me, but it's interesting and fun
- Truffel Schnuffel: Cute kids game from Haba, but if I bought everything with that description, I'd be overrun
- Sakkara: Interesting, but broken without a rules fix, could be quite good with a fix
- Zooloretto: Fun, but maybe not enough to justify the shelf space
- Wikinger: For me, it didn't hang together well enough
- Guatemala Cafe: Left me cold
- Portobello Market: Short, not interesting enough.
- Sudoku Challenge: Some game there, but not enough
- Dragon Parade: Cute, but nothing striking.
- Jetzt schlagt's 13: Mundane.
- Stonehenge: I'd like to play the other three games, but the two I tried weren't "enough".
- Nomads of Arabia: I didn't feel like there were enough choices
